First time there, its hard to rate because it was a buffett for Mothers Day. I really wanted to experience the regular menu but it wasnt available for Mother's Day.

This was not our first visit to Mahi Mah's and we've been here before for the Easter buffet. This time the buffet was a disappointment. The grits were cold. I understand it's hard to keep the serving trays warm. There was a lack of variety. For example there was a cook making omelets but there was no bacon, sausage or pancakes. The only meat was a carving station of ham and lamb. The lamb was good but the ham had no flavor. There was a very limited variety of desserts as well. I spent 180 dollars for 4 people and felt that I wasted my money. The women's restroom was closed and the men's room was very dirty.

Tuna tower and blackened mahi were great. Service was perfect. Will definitely return.

The location is wonderful. The food was just OK, not much flavor at all. Good local beers. Although our server was uninterested we did observe others interacting with other customers and assuring they had a good time.

The service was awesome. However, our hostess sat us in the worst possible area--right smack in the middle of a crowded party of inebriated guests. Another sever seated is in a more quiet area. Our waitress was a little irritated, but overall, she was attentive.
Prices are comparable to elsewhere, but the beer prices are outrageous. How can you justify $8 for a beer on tap?
On the plus side, the view is gorgeous. I also applaud them for being original. It wasn't your stereotypical sushi joint with frenetic, "if it's Asian, it must be Japanese " style decor. Thanks for not doing that!

We do not drink alcohol so can not review anything from the bar. However, we do eat seafood and Mahi Mah's is one of our favorite places on the Boardwalk. A bit noisy for us, the food and service make up for it. Parking is tight so prefer to walk if we are close enough and weather permits or we use the valet service. It was very busy, so glad we made reservations through "open table." We were seated out near the bar and that was ok, but the cold air was blowing in from the Boardwalk door and shocked us a few times. Not much you can do about that, but we'll know better next winter, to not accept a seat out there! They allow substitutions on the menu, i.e. coconut rice for sweet potato... I just love that coconut rice and it goes well with all seafood! Looking forward to our next visit.

Oysters were huge, fun/beachy cocktails. The crab pots were our favorite dish ordered.

I truly love this resturant & was truly excited to take my fiancé there for the first time. He loved your sushi & was very impressed with its freshness. He gives it a definite thumbs up!

Took a friend out for her birthday. Had a pleasant evening although it was a bit loud. Ordered the spicy tuna roll and the smashed cauliflower which was really good. I did like that we were able to hang out at the table for a while without feeling like we were being rushed out. Will come back again.

Good food, but waitress was annoyed by our request for a gluten free menu, and even more annoyed that she had to check on the ingredients for us. Most restaurants are very accommodating and understanding; she was a jerk.

One of the best Happy Hours on the beach. The .50 oysters paired with some 3.50 orange crushes were really good. Server was okay for level of service I was expecting, but if I didn't get happy hour prices I may have been upset at the speed of service. I will be going again in the future.

We ate during Happy Hour which gave us great prices. the raw oysters were good and the Mahi Mahi sliders were very generous. Their happy hours are a great value, but their menu is top notch. This is one of our favorite places at Virginia Beach.
