    Wake up late, get a seat outside with an ocean view, and order one of their variety of crushes... Classic orange, or my favorite- the ruby red (grapefruit crush). Great way to start your beach day...

    Everything is amazing. Bacon wrapped scallops! Crab legs! Hush puppies are killer. Make sure to get an orange crush. Entrees are all amazing and specials always impress. This is the best on the beach!

    Better than any other restaurant at VA Beach I've been to. Service was great, food was amazing, didn't have to wait long at 7, and orange crush was good but try creamsicle crush too. #willgoagain

    I passed up on the Orange Crush and had my usual beer. Now I wish I had tried one. Food was great and so was the service. Came highly recommended by a local and we were not disappointed.

    The Bloody Mary's were excellent. Seafood was great---lightly battered so I could still taste the actual seafood. Mark was a great waiter! This will be my go-to for future trips!

    Hubby said the Crabcake Ripper Sandwich was great but my Broiled Flounder with Parmesan Cream Sauce was one of the BEST flounder dishes I've ever had... Two thumbs up!

    My personal Fave is the Ruby Red Crush. Grapefruit, Absolut Ruby Red Vodka, Triple Sec a splash of cranberry and Sprite. Bartenders are the best hands down and there is always fun to be had!
