Came in during the "off" season. Was staying at the hotel attached to it. I was told by the front desk to go in and see Michelle. That was the best recommendation this whole trip!! Best food I've had, and it was just a seasonal menu. Cant wait to come back and try it when everything is up and swinging.

Beautiful sunny day had been looking for another establishment but decided to stop by this location & enjoy the scenery. Food was average but reasonably priced. Staff was friendly & service quite good. Prices were very reasonable.

The food was mediocre at best. Lisa our server was excellent. Soda was flat they should have bought some bottles of soda. we did not want to chance dessert. There are so many other places that were better we later tried.

I visited the Lighthouse in the middle of September. The weather was terrific so I had a chance to enjoy the view of the ocean from the restaurant. The beach bangin' shrimp were really good, popcorn shrimp in buffalo sauce and the portion was plentiful.

My wife and I stayed next door for 19 days and after our first visit .... the first night ... we would come in and they would bring our drinks by the time we sat down. Lisa ... Chele and Jorie treated us like family. Happy Hour was 3pm to 7pm and they made our gin & tonics to order.... More

Fine option for a light meal with a modest ocean view. Bar atmosphere but still OK for kids (children's menu). Solid spinach artichoke dip; less yummy beach fries and shrimp. Mainly open air (under cover) and connected to a hotel. Bit expensive for the offerings.

This is the cutest lil place (in my opinion but I'm a lighthouse enthusiast) to eat. Offers awesome views of the beach too! It is rather expensive but from what we've seen all down the board walk, everything is. The blackened steak bites are the BEST! We've been several times and the staff is always charming. It's always our first... More

We LOVE this place!! We stop in every time we are at Virginia Beach. It's just a cute little local-type bar that suits us perfectly. It's small, right on the boardwalk, and has ice-cold beer. This time we got to meet Michelle, who was just awesome!! So friendly and happy! She certainly made this visit fun! We had some hot... More
