About the restaurant
Situated under a canopy of old growth trees on Lake Joyce, this natural gem serves seasonal fare from tidal Virginia. The menu reflects freshness with a distinct emphasis on showcasing the inherent colors and flavors of the ingredients. The cafe's bakery provides all its breads and deserts and is open for retail on the weekends. This fresh approach to food done in a natural and unpretentious setting has been a local favorite for twelve years. If you don't see your desired time slot available give us a call.

About the restaurant
Mizuno Japanese Restaurant is a family-run business that first opened in 1996. Located in Virginia Beach, Mizuno is embedded in a seafood hotspot, only 25 miles south of the Eastern Shore of Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay, and 158 miles south of Hatteras, North Carolina. Chef-owner Wataru Mizuno feels blessed to be a sushi chef in a culinary trifecta like Virginia Beach. Mizuno and his team take advantage of the restaurant's access to local sources by artfully composing daily specials that feature fresh shrimp, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, flounder, blue crabs and oysters, to name a few. The hook's simple. Mizuno resists complicated sauces and excessive ingredients. Instead, he flavors scallops from the world famous Chesapeake Bay, adding nothing more, at times, than a dash of citrus and a pinch of sea salt. Wataru Mizuno: Chef/Owner Born in Japan, Wataru Mizuno received his formal training in Tokyo, as an apprentice under master Teruo Sato.

The food was delicious! We had the gyoza dumplings and several rolls. Our favorite was the crispy maguro with tuna and crab. We celebrated a birthday and they served a ice cream waffle dessert with a candle complimentary. So nice!

The Atlantic is an oyster/craft cocktail bar nestled in the heart of the Virginia Beach oceanfront. Our menu celebrates seafoods from the east coast, west coast and beyond, and we strive to support local and regional fishermen, crabbers, oystermen, farmers and producers. Don't eat seafood?

We arrived early but were not allowed to be seated til our entire party arrived. Menu selection was great as usual and food was delicious. Our server was very friendly but we had to remind her 2x for drink refills. Other than that we enjoyed our brunch :)

Cobalt offers an excellent meal experience, I just wish they were in my town. Their location is 2 hours travel time each way but if I get anywhere remotely close I’m going. I liked their offerings, service and ambiance enough that I would go 2 or 3 times a month if they were local. Check them out, you will not regret it.

About the restaurant
Tupelo Honey is a revival of Southern food and traditions rooted in the Carolina Mountains we call home. We craft brunches, lunches and suppers that bring family and friends around the table and allow for conversations and cocktails to linger longer than usual. Always scratch-made, always responsibly-soured, and always Southern.

Our Dog Friendly Patio is available year-round. Ask our host about our special dog menu! The patio is covered from the elements, but does not have heaters.
Reservations recommended.

Mexican
Virginia Beach
About the restaurant
We create authentic Mexican food inspired by the cuisine of Mexico City and add a modern twist. Imagine grilled fish, chicken or steak topped with one of a kind signature sauces like chipotle-wine and Portobello mushroom or sautéed artichoke heart and roasted red bell pepper. Pair that with our award-winning margarita, the Casa Rita, made from fresh lime-juice and the finest tequila and you’ve got what we call Modern Mexican.

Enjoyed the food. Especially the Bronie desert with what I called the magic sauce.
