We always have a wonderful meal at Crocs! My husband has celiac and Crocs has fantastic gluten-free options. We all said the food was incredibly fresh-tasting and extremely flavorful!

Croc's remains the standard for fine dining in VA Beach, on or off the oceanfront. If you've had enough of the 2.5 hour waits elsewhere hit this place up!

We’ve gone to the Drag Yourself To Brunch three different times. This time the service was terrible. I don’t know if they were short staffed, but after an hour of waiting for our food, I complained to a manager. They brought us free Mimosas, but we still waited another 15 minutes. The show is always fun, but even that has declined. There was a lack of variety and some of the best acts seem to have moved on. We most likely won’t go again.

My friends and I attended the Drag Yourself to Brunch and it was truly AMAZING!!!! It was a great show with delicious food (the mimosas were on point!). Everyone was upbeat and audience participation just added to the fun. Highly recommend booking a table to see this show. The bill for 4 people including a couple alcoholic beverages was a little under $100 so it’s not going to be a cheap occasion but paired with the show it is well worth it!

The entertainers where not as pretty as the last two times I went. Still good nasty clean fun. Took 7 women who have been before and we are already planning a trip back. The one that had the best time is a religious women who has never been in a bar and she had a blast. Cant wait til Aug for my 4 time back in two years.

This was a last minute idea the night before and I'm very glad I called to verify that we should make reservations on open table. The Drag yourself to Brunch event was an absolute blast and fully booked. Initially we didn't have great seats (crowded next to bar so folks would "squeeze" thru) -I think Open Table overbooked but we didn't complain - eager to enjoy a good show and would be close to the bar and emcee some there was some good things about the spot. Then the owner moved us to a prime spot that had a "pole" for the ladies to dance around and it was such great seating, which delicious drinks & food (for brunch I recommend the shrimp & grits and some hash-browns or fries to swirl in the remaining in dish after), and great entertainment. A great crowd in attendance too. Will go again and I see they have Tuesday night Drag Bingo too!
