Norfolk Seafood Company is a place where seafood lovers can find a traditional plate of flounder, scallops or crab but without the fancy ingredients and inflated prices. The restaurant is centrally located in downtown Norfolk. The mission of the Norfolk Seafood Company is to bring tasty seafood to locals and tourists, minus the trip to the Oceanfront. The menu features everything a good seafood restaurant should offer, plus all the sides. A cold beer, wine or a specialty drink from the bar rounds off any meal.

Had family in town and took them here. The food and service were great. We had to ask for the music to be turned down but everything else was great!

Very nice restaurant. Went for Valentines Day. Food was excellent. Only concern was the extra long wait for each course. I could tell the food sat a little while so it may have been my servers delay. Overall, good night- I will try again to see it was just the crowd size causing the delay. Every table was full.

The service was TERRIBLE. The waiter was nonchalant and didn’t accommodate to any of the issues we had. We ordered the crab bisque and it had WAY too much butter in it. You could literally dip your spoon in it and pull it out and it would be covered in butter. When we told her we couldn’t eat it because of the amount of butter, she just said okay and didn’t offer any other options. Since this is a “fancy” and “high end” restaurant, I was expecting the service to be A1. The waiter was rude when it came to our issues and questions. The price was WAY too high for the food amount. It wasn’t worth the price at all. I won’t be coming back here again. I wish I knew the waiters name so that I could tell the manager about her.

Valentine date with my wife. Seated in the bar without an option for dining room seating. Heating inadequate for dining and lacking in any intimacy for event. Food quality poor. Wait service good. Value marginal for expense. Disappointing!

Great Evening with attention to detail from everyone involved. Diane was an accomplished server and communicated with the table flawlessly. Our meals were wonderfully prepared by the kitchen and suitably portioned. Very tasty and fresh. Cocktails were smooth and on point. Will certainly return for another favorable evening dinning out. Only gig was the loud dinner party arriving half way through our evening and sitting on the same level that drowned out our evenings conversations at our table from time to time.

The food was spectacular. Well presented and very tasty. My only issue was with an old fashioned cocktail i had ordered. It was not at all what I asked for. It didn’t even have ice?? I would’ve tried another one but didn’t want to risk it.
