Had a great time at Rockafellas! We were seated at a window table overlooking the marina with a great view and terrific food ! Service at the bar and table was friendly and professional.
We go to Rockafellers every time we are at the beach. The food is spectacular, we have never been disappointed. The menu options work for both land and sea food lovers. The drinks are tasty and innovative. The atmosphere is casual, and every seat has a great view of Rudee Inlet. We sometimes go for lunch and watch the comings and goings of the Inlet, other times we have a late dinner and just chat. The service here is professional and friendly, no spilling drinks or screwing up requests. They have early bird specials that appeal to a whole party and are a great value, or order off the menu for long time favorites. You cannot go wrong at Rockafeller's!
Our group of eight all enjoyed our meal. We like the way the tables were configured ina square so that we were all able to see each other. I had the BBQ Shrimp and crab cake which I thought was a tasty lunch. Our waitress got all our orders correct, and was very nice and friendly.
The staff are very friendly and the food is great!
Best crabcakes ever! We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The food was great, the atmosphere was nice and service was friendly.
Celebrated 37 years with my husband. It was wonderful.
Great food and the view near the water was beautiful.
Oysters Rockafeller was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting seafood in Virginia Beach!
This was an anniversary dinner for my wife and I, and we shared it with our daughter. My wife had shrimp, and my daughter had mahi. They both seemed to enjoy their meals. I had the baby back ribs, and they were a disappointment. There was not much meat on the bones and they were seriously lacking in flavor as well. The small piece of corn on the cob was also almost cold.
The corn bread that came out before our meal was as good as anything I have ever had in terms of corn bread or muffins.
The location is nice being on the inlet, and service was perfectly fine.
Food was OK. Nothing was hot. Server may have been too busy with friends.
Took my wife and son out for Sunday brunch. Outstanding meal, options and service. We visit VA Beach at least once or more a year and this is always a highlight of ours.
Our waiter was fantastic. Food was good. Not much oyster in the oyster Rockefeller. A little disappointed. Taste was perfect otherwise.
Seafood was very good, fresh, well prepared; however I had to send crab cake back because it was not hot; it was not hot the second time either I asked for a to go container
Had a great time and the food was amazing!
I indicated it was for a birthday, received no recognition from our server. Service was also very slow and also forgot various food and drink items. This is our second time dinning here and saw no improvement on service.
Definitely a night when reservation came in handy. It was very busy.
We’ve lived in VB for a few years; Rockafeller’s has become one of our date night favorites. We’ve never had a bad experience. Check website or for specials on 99 cent Oysters Rockafeller. I get them well done, the char pairs perfectly your favorite “NASCAR” beer!
Tonight the food was very good; however, not as good as previous visits. If you like pimento cheese, the crab shrimp hush puppies are worth trying. The hush puppies were very good tonight.
Food was a little slow, very obvious kitchen back up. Again, it was very busy.
Crab Norfolk was good. I’ve had it once before, it was much better the first time.
My wife’s blackened rockfish was perfectly prepared and delicious.
Service was outstanding! Had same server on past visits, always great! In general the service is always excellent.
Ask for window seating, nice view of Lake Rudee.
Booking in at 7:00 pm on OpenTable we were not seated till 7:35. Bad.
Awesome oysters rock, Mahi, and flounder! We were seated immediately and had great service. We are already planning to return!
We had a reservation for 6:30 and arrived a little early and were seated immediately. Our waiter was very friendly and made helpful menu suggestions. We decided on appetizers of shrimp cocktail and the shrimp & crab hush puppies, both were excellent! Our dinners were the steak topped with crab meat for my husband and I ordered the seafood trio of crab cake, shrimp and scallops. Both dinners came with red pot and green beans, all very fresh and tasty. From the service to the quality of the food this place is first class but with a little casual feel. I cannot wait to come back on my next visit to VA Beach and I would recommend for sure ! Oh and the white sangria was super unique and the drink menu selection is really good.
The view across Rudee Inslet slips was very pleasant during our late evening dinner. Service was impeccably provided by Andrew. The dinner and cocktail menu options were plentiful but not overwhelming. The options were available in multiple preparations. We're had blackened flounder and Ben's Bowl. Both were excellent for portion size and flavor. Five stars!!
Food was great, it was hot when it arrived and very flavorful. Wait staff were polite and quick to get what you needed. We have been going there as a group (I usually have anywhere from 10 to 30 people go each year.) This year was one of our smallest groups due to low attendance at our function, not because of the restaurant. Keep up the good work!
We had a wonderful family dinner. This pace was recommended by a local and it was great. I had the Trio platter and my husband had the local catch special. Nothing disappointed. Our server was great and even my 8 year old enjoyed her dinner. I will go back next time I am in Va. Beach.
Service was great and Rockafeller's was a great start to our evening getaway in VA beach. The food was once again exceptional and the new drink specials were wonderful. They never disappoint!
Waiter was not attentive. In his defense he had a LARGE table in addition to our party of 2. Our food did arrive hot after a long wait. Our final drink order was forgotten. Explainations/excuses/apologizes expressed.
For years, this is my "go to" spot for simple, fresh, properly prepared seafood. Beautiful view of Rudee Inlet, good service, good food..........what else could you want? We go often and in over 25 years we have had only 1 disappointment, and that wasn't a terrible situation. We'll be back soon.
Service was fast, staff polite, great view of the water.
We come here every year with the Shriners & we have to come Thursday night for the whole lobster special!!
Awesome food, awesome value and awesome servers. We come here every year! It’s a “can’t miss” place!
Great time as always! Our server was wonderful and did well with our larger party (6 adults, 2 kids). Food was wonderful and enjoyed by all.
We went here for my boyfriends birthday and when I made reservations I asked for wine and dessert to be brought out and we were treated great. Amazing service fabulous food delicious dessert and tasty wine. It was a great birthday and way to end our vacation
I really enjoyed my experience the first time at Rockafeller's. I was waited on immediately, the service was very good, and the food was exactly what I would have expected. I will definitely be going back there.
Have gone there last 4 years since was our tradition visiting Sandbridge.
Wanted to sit on deck but not available ..it was not open.
I had a pasta seafood dish. Absolutely no flavor. Like tomato from a can. My husband had crab cakes
They had filler. Salad boring.
80.00 before tip.
I was a little disappointed because they were out of steak. The chicken I ordered was just okay.
Waitress was very attentive but food took way too long. Booked on open table but had to wait 30 minutes for a table
Host Brian was wonderful. Got a table for us that we requested. Checked in on us at the bar while we were waiting for specific table...above and beyond!
Mahi and Tuna entrees were both delicious.
Corn bread was amazing!
She Crab Soup also delicious !
Only disappointment was they advertised rocking chairs overlooking inlet and when I inquired, the hostess stated they only had benches outside...
We were a party of six and were seated nicely. They did call in advance to confirm our reservation and then asked if any member of our party had any trouble with stairs. We did, and I was happy they asked. We were seated on the first floor. Our waiter was fine. The calamari appetizer was obviously cooked in old oil and was not good at all. My fried shrimp was tasteless. My husband had ribs and they were pretty good. It was very loud. I was very disappointed because it used to be a good restaurant. I will probably not go back.
I’m a local and when we first started to go eat there the food was outstanding but I think they are slightly slipping .
The place is wonderful, service great, but seafood cooked to long. It was dry.
The Thursday lobster special is a great deal. The menu options consists of a little of everything.
Have come here once a year for many years for the Thursday night lobster special. Ambiance and service are still top shelf, the lobsters were not up to the past quality.
