    My sister came to VA Beach for a visit over Labor Day weekend. I found Crocs 19th Street Bistro on Open Table. The title said Exceptional so I made a reservation. The four of us had an outdoor table, half off wine bottles, and delicious food. VA Beach has so much pub food so pan seared scallops and shrimp were a special treat. I will be back many times. A special thanks to Tammy, our server. She was friendly and attentive. Five stars, well done!

    Great experience overall and highly recommend. Very good selection of appetizers, which had fresh medetranean style ingredients. Loved the mezze sampler, baba ghanoush and pita pizza. Crab cakes were outstanding for the entrees. Only criticisms is that the Falafel could have been better, was a bit dry. Tuna was also unavailable, which was disappointing for one of our guests. But to finish on a positive note, the vibe of the restaurant and attitude of our server was outstanding. Our server was very kind and accommodating to our kids, making a memorable experience for our daughters 5th year birthday!

    The music was sustained at over 100db frequently during the Drag Brunch. While louder music is energetic, it was too much for those of us who are susceptible to high frequency hearing loss. Otherwise, loved the show and food. Fun!

    I reserved a table for three two weeks in advance for the drag brunch, and when we showed up we were told there was “no seating left” despite having a reservation. We couldn’t even sit at the bar and were just turned away. Would not recommend - go support local gay bars instead.

    Had a wonderful time. It was a little warm and the speaker kept going in & out. The first “performer” was a guest and didn’t really perform- just came out and walked around collecting dollars. Everyone else was fantastic! High energy, great interactions! Waitress was awesome! Overall we had an amazing time.

    We reserved a table, but they have it away so we had to sit in the back & couldn’t see any of the performances. The food was horrible. We all got different meals and they were all disgusting & salty. The performers are average, at best. The employees were very nice though.

    Sat outside on the patio, urban background noise was enjoyable. Sarah was our server, she was great! It was half off bottled wine evening, what a bargain! Stag’s Leap Chardonnay half off! Food was excellent, 3 of us had shrimp/ scallops combination, and 1 had salad and pizza appetizer as meal. Will go back again soon!

    We had excellent service and food last night for date night! We were early for our reservation, but the hostesses were able to seat us right away and they were very welcoming. It was 1/2 off bottles of wine, so, of course we got a bottle. Our server did a great wine presentation (I think her name was Sarah). She provided amazing service overall. We ordered the mezze, tuna bites and calamari to split as our meal. They were all phenomenal. We finished the meal with a brownie sundae that was DELISH. This will for sure become one of our regular date nights.

    I've been to the restaurant before and give the Mediterranean leaning menu two enthusiastic thumbs up! For the Drag Yourself to Brunch, a really great time - so hilarious - but the brunch menu could use some sprucing up. Still good but could be better given their normal fare!
