Rappahannock oysters are our new fav! Sooooooo good! Also the special soup was incredible- 10/10 experience!
The food here is always perfection. It's easy to run up a big bill because you just want everything on the menu! Also, so impressed with how well the staff knows the menu inside and out. Every ingredient or detail we asked out, our waitress knew without having to run back and ask the kitchen. That's the mark of a great restaurant.
Ate outside socially distanced.....view of parking lot. Happy from COVID point of view but not as pretty as inside...Food and service were great. Husband had shrimp and grits, some of the best we've had. Complicated flavor from black garlic. Really good grits too. Loved my oysters and the fish of the day preparation.
Service and food were excellent as always
The food was great! We had oysters and shrimp and grits. The menu was a bit bare but overall it was a great experience. Awesome free parking and not too far from other activities in the downtown area
We sat outside which was great. Inside would have been way too loud even with the limited number of people allowed in during COVID 19. The wait staff was very friendly.
The positive experience started with the friendly service. Then the food came and it was outstanding! Best baked clams we have ever had. Only wish we had wss that yhe martini came in a martini glass and not a coup glass. Awesome overall dining experience. Cant wait to go back!
Plenty of outdoor seating to satisfy those that are smart about not being comfortable with indoor conditions.
They were very accommodating to our large party and the food was simply amazing
Food is always great n our server Kelly is makes the restaurant experience even more enjoyable.
We really enjoyed the food overall, particularly the mussels and the flounder. I found the grilled oysters to be delicious as well. Sometimes wine lists can be generic. This wine list was varied offering some of my favorite 'below the radar' wines to choose from. Service was clearly well trained. I had a great evening!
Great seafood and environment. Will be back again!
Loved our oysters, as always. Whole fish is the best deal for fresh fish on the whole peninsula.
The tastiest, freshest oysters around. Great outdoor seating. Love the variety of oyster shooters!
The host was a bit rude. Other than that everything was good.
Really delicious Grouper and Triggerfish entrées and we love the roasted oysters with jalapeño butter as we get them every time we visit. They have done a great job with their outdoor seating. These guys get no hype but a really quality restaurant!
Great play for oysters and fish! Parking is good and the service was excellent! I look forward to my next visit!
Our oyster shucker needs to work on his craft. We ordered 2 dozen oysters on half shell and we had lots of shell pieces. Other than that, we enjoyed the mussels so much, we ordered a second plate! Our server gave a great recommendation on wine for our meal.
I’d go back for the mussels!
Great food and efficient service. Will return as it is safe environment and great food,
We got in an hr before our reservation no issue. We chose to sit at the bar. Everything was very spaced out to abide by the social distance rules, which was great. The drinks were delicious, all of the oysters were great but the house oyster which is the rappahannock was DELICIOUS!! My boyfriend didn’t care for the shrimp and grits and the bartenders took it off of the bill without us even asking, which we very much appreciated. We will continue to visit rappahannock whenever we’re in town and encourage you to as well!
Was great !!
Kicked off our wedding anniversary here.
Had the oysters, shrimp and grits, and cheesecake. Food was fresh, relaxed atmosphere, beautiful chill spot. We’ll be back!
Went for lunch with business associate, all was good only disappointment, was they had none of the clam dishes, which limited the menu choices .
Food and service were both wonderful. The mussel sofrito is a must try.
Tried this restaurant as we were looking for a last-minute option that had outdoor seating. It turned out to be a great dining experience! Our server (Lindsay) was personable and provided a great description of the items we were considering. We ordered the Shrimp and grits, raw oysters, and the Mussels Sofftrito. All were fantastic! Additionally, the house cocktails were awesome!
Great experience and food!
We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday night dinner at Rappahannock. Everyone was friendly ~ from the host who greeted us to the guy shucking oysters at the bar while we waited to be seated to the cheerful waitress who served us. The food was fantastic and fresh ~ best raw oysters we've had in a long time! The shrimp po boy,the oyster po boy and grits were delicious. We will most definitely be returning for another meal there!
Had items on menu they could not provide that make no sense...like a bread basket. Place seems a bit like they are still trying to figure out how to run a restaurant. Good food just small portions with fair service.
Can’t say enough good things! Food was excellent but the service was the real star! We were celebrating graduation and it was pouring out and the servers had to run out to our covered seating and did so with smiles and impeccable service. Loved every minute of our meal and will definitely return! Thank you!
Excellent seafood and a very nice wine menu.
Great restaurant to take a family to eat at. Loved our waiter Antonio, and the food was delicious. Highly recommend
GREAT OYSTERS AND FOOD!!!!
We eat at Rappahannock whenever we are in Charleston!!
Awesome as usual!
The atmosphere is only surpassed by the seafood delicacies. The variety of cocktails and menu items was superb.
There was some communication problems with the use of gift cards that was cleared up by the manager.
I I’ve been to the restaurant several times and absolutely love it. This is my friend’s first visit and she fell in love with it there were oysters from New Jersey from where she moved over a year ago. They were excellent. This is so convenient, lots of parking, excellent service, and a great meeting place.
It was a beautiful night to sit outside. The area was set up perfectly, plenty of social distancing space between all the tables. The oysters were meaty and so fresh and my fish of the day, grouper was delicious cooked perfectly and just the right amount. We will be back.
Everything was excellent
Did not manage social distancing well in bar area. Bartender had attitude.
The oysters and service were great. We enjoyed sitting outside on a beautiful day too!
Great food! Loads of oyster options. Fish main course I chose was wonderful!
