Omg - this is the best place to find oysters Rockefeller anywhere in the Tidewater area. Their oyster shooters are also great. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is cool. You can also have private parties.

Just got back from at the Lucky Oyster and boy was I disappointed. If the salad was the highlight of my meal, that is bad. I ordered the broiled Mahi Mahi along with a side of mash potatoes. The piece of fish was too small and I had to send back the potatoes because they tasted funny. This is my... More

I had the crab cakes, broiled. They were full of crab with no filler, onions or peppers. My wife had broiled scallops. They were sweet and filling. We ordered a wanton strawberry dessert. It was fresh and wonderful. Not overly sweet. They do not put it with every seafood item on the menu, but you can get Lucky Sauce with... More

Stopped in early on a Friday evening beating the crowd, wait seems to pick up around 6. Big eclectic restaurant with a large menu selection of seafood. Oysters on a half shell were great, but the fish was slightly overcooked. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Definitely a place to try out, probably not a great weekly hangout.

Lots of locals, great oysters and fried shrimp. It is a combination local bar and pub, so don't expect fancy, just expect good food at a fair price.

We were looking for a Virginia Beach oyster place since Metropolitan Oyster Exchange recently closed down. The internet reviews were promising and the menus were interesting. We went on a Wednesday night as the special was half price wine. I asked for the German Mosel Riesling shown online. They did not have it. They had two American Rieslings that we... More

Chose this place after our first choice had a 2 hr wait. Was pleased with the overall experience. Short wait but this place is good sized and did not wait more than 10 min. Wife had the stuffed flounder with crabmeat. It was very good. Mine was good and i had the lobster mahi mahi. Not as good as hers.... More

When we arrived there was a 20 minute wait so we decided to head to the bar and have a drink while we wait. Once there we found a first come first serve table, so we snagged it. They were really busy but the service was great. We had the Oysters Rockfeller (might be the best I have had -... More

We had to park two lots over in the shopping center. It was a Friday night and we were sure it would be a long wait as they don't take reservations. The bar was crowded but we were seated immediately. I had the Lobster and Shrimp Mac and cheese, my husband had the Neptunes Platter. Both were good. Mine was... More
