Located minutes from Chesapeake Bay on the water is One Fish-Two Fish. We offer an alternative to formal dining, it's what we call "fun dining." The atmosphere is "upscale without the uppity." This unique feeling is created by a casual waterfront environment with boat access. The restaurant is centered around the Exhibition Kitchen with panoramic views of the Bay. The menu incorporates a blend of California style with fresh, local seafood. The wine list focuses on "boutique style" wines and is consistently recognized with the Wine Spectator "Award of Excellence." The owners and staff strive to make this venue high energy but still elegant. The only thing we overlook is the water. See you there.

Great night on the water. Awesome drinks, apps and food.

It’s the best place to be at the beach when sharing an evening with a special person.

Sitting our on the covered patio was amazing. We got to watch the sun set over the water and the food was delicious. Strongly recommend this place for casual to formal events and anything in between.

We had a delightful meal al fresco on the deck. The service was attentive, but not overwhelming. Although the menu is short, there are a variety of foods to choose from. The appetizer mussels (which would serve as a meal for one or could be shared with the whole table) were particularly good. While my fish was overcooked, the others food was perfect. It was a great evening to just relax and enjoy the view and the good food and wine.

Great location, food and service. Celebrating a birthday and had a window table with a birthday note. No singing which I appreciated!

We are regular customers. The food is always amazing. We expected the same this visit but the menu changes, especially to the salmon dish were terrible. The stewed tomatoes tasted like a tin can and the fish was very under cooked. Also the bread served prior to dinner was clearly stale. It crumbled when you touched it. For the price it was definitely not worth it this time around. Hopefully they get on track. Would be a shame to see their quality continue to go down.

One Fish, Two Fish is in a great location. Fantastic views of the water way with deck seating and plenty of seating indoors to highlight those views. Service was good including the greater at the door and the bar tender on the deck. Food was good as expected for the price point. I had the Halibut special that included polenta (not a big fan) that was really creamy and tasty. My only issue is was the menu, Very, very basic. A fried fish, a fried shrimp, Salmon, Ahi, lobster tail and a couple meats. I was expecting more than what I would find at pretty much every other seafood place in the area. Like i said the special was great as was my wife's lobster, but I would have liked a few more choices for a seafood restaurant in Va Beach!

For a fish restaurant located right by the water, I'd have expected more fresh fish and seafood and I'd hoped for more local options. A lot of the menu items come fried in breadcrumbs which isn't necessarily made clear in the description. The food was nothing special but the pre-dinner cocktail was refreshing and original and the scenery is lovely.

Started poorly, but improved.

Made a 5:45 reservation, arrived at 5:35 and were told we had to wait for a table. The restaurant had at least 80 tables and only four or five tables were seated, several waiters standing around. After waiting 12 minutes we went back to the hostess who said “oh I’m so sorry I forgot. “ She walked us to a table, and apologized again. When we asked her what happened, why did she think we were sitting there waiting, she said that the manager is very particular about where people are seated and she was afraid to seat us any place without her manager’s approval. The poor hostess was terrified. Very negative first impression. And no manager in sight.

The server was excellent, food was wonderful and the ambience was superb.

Management needs to do a better job training their people. This was unacceptable.

I was excited to try the crab cakes but was very disappointed, very little crab meat all filler and for the price it was not of value. Soup of the day was apparatus delicious! My friend had the shrimp and loved it. Service good and friendly.

Lovely upscale yet casual restaurant on the water. The food was very good. The crab soup was delicious and filled with fresh crab. My husband had the lobster entrée which he said was outstanding. I had the shrimp and crab scampi. The shrimp and crab were both fresh and ample. I thought the lemon butter sauce was a little overpowering though. Dessert was disappointing as the warm apple oatmeal crisp was not in the least warm. The server did remove it from our bill which was very nice.
