Gotta get the Fish Tacos, by far the best I've ever had, my wife gets the crab cakes, which actually have lumps of real crab, and the kids really enjoyed the She Crab soup and how the waitress drawn on the table with them, will continue to go back!

Great food, service and atmosphere. The tiki shrimp and hush puppies are my all time favorite. We will be back again soon.

Amazing sunset views. Food is just as amazing. Live music often and deck sitting in the summer. Drink specials and on Wednesday they have very good surf and turf. Love them. Have gone for years. Making the drive from anywhere in Hampton roads is worth it. And don't forget the new gift shop detached in the parking lot.

Very pleasant atmosphere and friendly wait staff. Located on the water so the view is wonderful. Everyone was extremely pleased with their meal. It was a family gathering of 8 people.

A few years ago my family and I had gone to this restaurant based on some friend and family recommendations for seafood in our area. So glad we listened! We've been back many times since! This restaurant has excellent seafood and is right on the water. The atmosphere is laid back and the food is one of the best in... More

We stopped by on our boat. We were able to tie up at the dock and go eat a great meal. The steamed shrimp were perfectly cook and seasoned. The raw oysters were generous and fresh. Loved the hush puppies. Our server, Lacy, was friendly and attentive but let us just relax and enjoy the view.

Visited here on a business trip, had a great time chatting with the bartender and learning about the bar. Food was fantastic- had crab cake, fried fish balls, and a salad. It's a bit out of the way but it's a beautiful drive and a fun excursion. Highly recommend if you're in town visiting Smithfield Foods.

Out of the way but right on the water. Staff friendly. Not owned by same person as when Guy Fieri visited so I have no idea what has changed. I had clam strips that were ordinary.Hush puppies were ok. Husband had oyster platter which he thought was outstanding. The oysters are reported to be local and 5 star. Crab soup... More
