    1st time eating at this restaurant and after listening and reading all the hype, not sure of a return visit. Understand the menu is quite pricy considering the location and what is offered on the menu. Arrived 15 minutes early and were seated immediately which was a good start. After that things went downhill. Got to our table, seats had crumbs or some other food on them but were easily wiped off. Waitress came and water offered to all. Ordered Hush Puppies and when they arrived they were hard and couldn't cut them with a knife. They were send back and did not want to try another order of them. 1st round of drinks were ordered but the nain draft "Night Shift" was not available. When you only have 4 options and 25% is not available not good. Went with 2nd option for beers. Ordered mains and when they arrived all was good. Had Salmon (had better), Flounder (tasty, but nothing amazing), Lobster Roll (quite pricy for size, but enjoyed), Mussels (wouldn't do the IPA style again, not a lot of flavor), Red Dragon Roll (only thing spicy was the Wasabi, a little disappointed). Attempted to order a 2nd Bud Light, but they were out, now we're down to 50% of the drafts not available. About halfway through the meal service was non-existent, no more water was being served, glasses never got refilled after about the 2nd time. Overall the meal was good, as I stated nothing to drag me back in again. Had some high hopes, but the night fell short.

    The food was not as great as in our previous visits. I asked for a medium filet mignon and it was over cooked. However, my asparagus and rice pilaf were good. My wife had the scallops. The scallops were good, but the sides were subpar. She had what I believe was roasted cauliflower, and the pearl onions that came with. It weren’t very good. We had the chocolate pudding cake for dessert, which was very good. I’ll server was nice and friendly. Our appetizers were average we had the hush puppies and the coconut shrimp. Our server was nice and friendly and we were pleased with her. We will definitely be back to give the restaurant another chance to please us as they have on previous visits.

    Had reservations. Seated at table, waited 10 minutes before we were brought menus. Ordered drinks and salad. Salad came, no drinks. Had to ask again for drinks. Long Island Iced Tea was weak, very lemony. Server was very nice, apologetic. Entrees arrived, fried shrimp were just warm, soggy breading, fries were cold, only tartar sauce brought, had to ask for cocktail sauce. Rockfish was tepid. Side of broccoli was burnt. $120+ Won’t be back.

    Service should be better. Initially it was very slow. When I told the waitress we had to be done in 1 hour because we had tickets to a show nearby, she was more responsive but borderline hostile thereafter. She tossed plates on the table and laid drinks together for us to hand out. It wouldn’t bother me except was incompatible with the prices charged. Out of six meals, 2 were excellent, 2 were fair, and 2 were poor. The salmon was excellent, pasta and lobster were fair. The fish sandwich was good but a very small portion. The chicken sandwich was overcooked. The clam chowder and hush puppies were excellent. The only reason I’d go back is it’s close to theatre venues. I would just get drinks and light fare.

    I lived in Boston for 3 years and was so excited when I learned LS was opening in VB. What a disappointment. Not only were they out of key items on the menu the service was astoundingly slow for the number of people in the restaurant and the food was subpar at best. So disappointed

    Great for “lent” Friday. Fish on Friday was great here. Perfectly cooked. The service was great, although no ice for sparking water. The only awkward piece was the wine list, overpriced and not approachable. Need more options and more options under $40

    The overall experience was ok. The amount of food was Kona disappointing for the price. We eat at 4 and 5 star establishments on the regular and pay less money. Clam chowder and lobster roll was good but definitely over priced. Hush puppies were misleading. No crab meat in it at ALL!!! Probably won’t go back.

    Waited inordinately long at the bar for service. Once at our table, the waitress was going to serve us a warm bottle of white wine; we noticed; she found a chilled bottle but couldn’t use a corkscrew, so we opened the bottle ourselves. Our appetizers (hush puppies) came out raw in the center; fixed on round two. For our entrees, my wife only received half of her meal (the other half was later found in the kitchen) and mine was an entirely different dish (gave up at that point and just ate what I had). Food was ok, but the service tanked the experience. We didn’t ask for any compensation for the challenges through the evening, but were surprised when no apology or any other acknowledgement was made. Was a shame as we’ve been to a few other Legal Seafoods and had good experiences. This was our second attempt at the Virginia Beach location (after a previous bad experience for the same type of service problems). At this time, I don’t see how we could go for a third try in good conscience.

    3 of us had dinner before going to The Sandler. Service was excellent. Food was way better than expected as we had heard mixed reviews. We had salmon, flounder and rockfish from the fresh catch menus all grilled. Very large servings. Fortunately they offer half salads. We would absolutely go again.

    We thought this would be a little more upscale than it was. They placed us beside the kitchen entrance on Valentines night with multiple tables open for two people. They claimed to be booked up on reservations. We understand a busy night but the employees were extremely loud and having inappropriate conversations between them. Food was ok, a little overpriced. We will not be a repeat customer as the value and ambiance is better elsewhere.

    The portions were much smaller and flavor was lacking this time around, I was kind of disappointed. But other than that I enjoyed the atmosphere and our waitress was really nice.

    Interesting way to fix scallops. Not fried as usual but in some sauce.

    The food was good. Service outstanding. The only criticism I have was the lack of cocktail menu. I was dissatisfied with the selection offered and the actual quality of the drinks. For an establishment such as this it was poorly lacking.

    We arrived about 7PM for dinner during Valentine's Week with a reservation. We were seated immediately and were surprised how empty the restaurant was. Our server came and took drink orders and asked if we were ready to order. We were not, she sisd she'd give us a couple minutes, and we waited. Eventually she came, we ordered. The chowder and Caesar salad were very good. My haddock was also good. My wife's shrimp and scallops were very over cooked. They were brown, not golden. After waiting to see our server we decided not so sent it back. I've had much better at Surf Rider for substantially less $$. It's a shame because Legal Seafood has such a good reputation. This would not be on my recommended list to return. Good luck satisfying local Virginia Beach customers. We are not New England tourists.
