We were visiting the area and my son wanted seafood. My search brought us to this place. The reviews were spot on! We didn’t have a bad food item! Granddaughter loved her grilled cheese and fries (mom and dad approved also!) My son and I had the shrimp ceviche. Oh. My. Gosh! It was fantastic! So much flavor and none of it was overpowering. I also had a beet salad with fried goat cheese. Also amazing! The only negative...I didn’t need to eat it all of what I ordered but it was too good to not! Lol My husband and son also ordered a variety of the fresh oysters. They loved them all! My husband wished he could have stayed all day just to taste all of the varieties. Really you couldn’t make a disappointing choice. Descriptions were spot on. Their homemade hot sauce was very tasty but not very hot, which is a good thing even though they both like spicy food. They didn’t want to ‘mask’ the flavor of the oysters. That just speaks to how fresh the oysters were. My husband also had steamed mussels which he said were very good and fresh. My daughter in law had the shrimp boil and she said everything was done to perfection! (My husband had to order a side of fries after trying our granddaughters. Lol)
Excellent place and would go back in a heartbeat!
Emma was the best server we had so much fun! She had great recommendations and the food was excellent. Great atmosphere, will be back again!
Wow! The food was excellent. The service was excellent. The menu choices were abundant.
Outstanding, great with a group.
You can't go wrong here. The oysters are fantastic no matter how you get them. I prefer the rock version, but raw, roasted, and fried are all great too. They have an awesome happy hour as well. The trout pate and nashville hot chicken are good as well. Really, the entire menu is well done and we haven't had a dish that wasn't great. Service is always on point.
Food was amazing as always! Service is always extraordinary however a little slow getting our drinks for a lunch time situation. I could eat here 3 times a day 7 days a week.
Amazing food and service was great. Likely noisy when crowded. Well worth a trip for lunch or early dinner.
Oysters. Oysters. Oysters. So many ways to have them. Oh and try the froze. Everything is Ama zing. We ended with the deviled eggs with salmon pastrami. What?! Yes.
Our server Heather was amazing and the food as always was impeccable. My husband wanted to hit all his favorite spots leading up to his 50th birthday tomorrow and this was top of his list. My sister and brother in law were in form out of town and had never been and raved about meal and service.
Love the ambiance and the food and drinks. Great staff. Very attentive. Will come back for More.
The Best, simply the best.

Always a great experience. Service and food are always spot on. The best oysters in Virginia. And a great happy hour.
The Atlantic never disappoints! Vincent and his team went above and beyond to help our group celebrate a special friends birthday. From the wine chosen, fish tacos, burgers, Brussel sprouts, crab avocado toast to the delicious peanut butter pie- we enjoyed every bite! Delicious! We will continue to support this local favorite! #Proven #winner
Absolutely loved this place. Best meal I've ever had in Va Beach by far.
The ham and pimento cheese sweet potato biscuits are to die for! We took multiple orders to go and came back the next day and ordered nothing but these for lunch!
Always come for happy hour great place to be at!!!

Our server was fabulously knowledgeable, and everything we ate and drank was divine. We will definitely be back, often.

Food was excellent for me . My wife didn’t like the batter on the fried scallops .. but over all we were satisfied
Love the restaurant, always eat there when we go the beach. Staff very friendly
Wonderful service. They always make me feel like family. Thank you everyone! Best oysters in town
Excellence service, food quality, and selection. Highly recommended.
Everything was delicious
Great spot...happy is from 3:00-6:00 everyday, but it's good there all the time.
Lovely time with friends. Best place to eat raw oysters.
Perfection! Great service, great food!
The waitress was phenomenal and the manager came out to speak with my husband when they were out of the bourbon he ordered. The food was delish, especially the oysters Rockefeller and crab cake. Def will go back.
Decided to have a late lunch date on NYE and the service was very attentive and accommodating moving us to a quieter table than where the receptionist chose to seat us. Terrific oysters and fresh out of the water, well shucked and presented. Steak Frites coupled a perfectly cooked NY Strip and fresh hot fries. Great ending to 2020!
Great atmosphere, excellent customer service, and the food is delicious! What more can I say other than "if you haven't been here, then you are denying yourself a wonderful experience!"
Raw oysters were perfectly shucked and appropriate service. Serena was very attentive and helpful for what can be a difficult table. Food all worthy of the 5 star rating given. Thanks snd Merry Christmas
