Lynnhaven Fish House was amazing as always. Had twin lobster tails that were HUGE! Husband had Mahi which was delicious. Great cocktails and beer selection. Love this place for dates, special occasions and delicious food!

We were warmly welcomed by the manager when we arrived and received very friendly and expert service. From the calamari to the scallops to the swordfish, all of the food was delicious. The hush puppies were the best that I've had in a long time and were served piping hot with butter. Don't forget to order a piece of the homemade cake. I shared a huge piece of the frosted orange cake with my husband.

Disappointed; been coming to Lynhaven for many years and I can honestly state I'm disappointed with the choices in dinner and it's quality. Many past dishes were eliminated from the menu- not sure why? Started with Oysters Rockefeller, tasted like they were pre cooked and re-heated. Ordered the tuna was told it was a thick cut piece of Ahi, it was delivered as a typical steak portion, thin and over cooked. This was always our go to place when visiting Va Beach, no longer

I have been dining here on and off since 1996. It's not the number one seafood restaurant that I I have discovered in the states, but it has been consistently good all these years, and thats not an easy thing for a restaurant to maintain.

I had the fried scallops, flounder & fantail shrimp & it was prepared flawlessly. We started with cocktail shrimp and our margarita's we're as good as I make at home.

Were going to miss this place once its gone. Folks, you have till the end of the year to get in before its gone...

Hubby and I went to Lynnhaven Fish House for dinner. We thought we might take advantage of VB restaurant week but the menu was not to our liking. We would have preferred more variety. We ordered from regular menu and it was wonderful! We both had snapper and it was exquisite. Our server, Jessey was top notch. She was knowledgeable and friendly. We have a fabulous evening. Oh I neglected to mention how attentive the front of the house staff and Chris ( MGR/owner maybe). Chris visited our table as well as other tables to check in. Great time,recommend.

We use open table quite a bit to find restaurants when we drop into a new location. Another great find!!

One of our favorite dining locations for 35 years, the restaurant is a waterfront location specializing in fresh seafood. The menu has changed over the years, but still serves great hush puppies and a good selection of fish prepared a variety of ways with interesting sauces for a modest price and two sides included with the meal. The wine list is OK, but has been slimmed down from previous years. Service is always attentive and efficient. Great views, but the windows need washing.

Our server was outstanding and very knowledgeable about the menu and specials. Constantly checking on us to make sure we did not need anything. Food was outstanding and cooked to our liking. Would definitely go back.

We enjoyed Mother's Day dinner at the Lynnhaven Fish House, and had a great experience. Dorothy, the manager, was very attentive to our needs, and our server, Jessy, made sure that everything was perfect. The fish, shrimp and crab dishes were delicious. All-in-all a very satisfying meal.

We had an amazing anniversary dinner at Lynnhaven Fish House restaurant. They sat us at a great table by the window with a water view. The waiter was attentive and enthusiastic and the food was amazing. We had a very romantic time and I highly recommend it!
