I like to go to dinner with friends at Bubbas because sitting outdoors and watching the activity on the Chesapeake Bay is usually so soothing. Instead we had Heather B. who seemed to feel serving the six of us was a huge imposition. One friend...More

You have to be in the mood for a seaside working village type of restaurant. It's relaxing and the food was pretty good.

We drove down to Virginia Beach to relax a bit at the beach and eat some seafood. We found the boardwalk to be a bit tacky, so we drove a few miles to check out the Dockside Seafood Restaurant and Marina. Dockside looks to be...More
