My boyfriend and went to this by the water restaurant for breakfast on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend - it was pretty empty which was shocking. We ordered coffee and water each and the coffee tasted like it was watered down. I am a huge coffee fan so I can say I wasn't impressed. I didn't even finish my... More

This was the best seafood restaurant we dined at while in Virginia Beach. They have an interesting menu to choose from and the quality of the food served was excellent. Waitstaff were topnotch. We went on a Friday night and they were very busy. We will definitely be going back the next time we are in Virginia Beach.

Wow! What a great price for what you get. We had Oysters Rockafeller to start. Yummy. Early bird special came with a Caesar salad, cornbread and dessert. We ordered the friend shrimp with green beans and potatoes. The shrimp were delicious and plentiful. Left there stuffed. The service was excellent. Did you know that Rockafeller's can accommodate private parties. We... More

I try and eat here atleast once a year when I am in town but this trip was not good. Neither myself or my co-workers meal was very good. Service was sub-par as well

My son invited my mother, 92, and me to Rockafeller's for a late lunch. My mother is in a wheelchair, so it took us a little time to give the car to the valet. Everyone was pleasant and not rushed, and she was up the path and at the door of the restaurant fairly quickly. We were met by Brian... More

I go for the Mojitos but their food specials make it affordable to stay for dinner too. Love the view from the second floor banquet room.
