Located at the very end of route 360 in Reedville, Virginia you will find this spot that offers on the water seating! Not only is the view amazing but so is the food! Lots of good seafood!

First of all, we chose to eat on the patio and I am so glad we did. The view of the sunset was amazing! The sweet tea was delicious. The waitress gladly substituted oysters for fish with the Captains Platter. The salad was average. The...More
