Seven adults had a wonderful dinner on Sunday night. The Oyster Rock app was missing bacon but everything else was spot on ! Our server Henox was personable and efficient. His suggestions leaned toward the more expensive menu items but was accurate every time. Please call for a reservation. DonQ

Stopped here while on vacation in May for their Happy Hour. Inexpensive drinks for top shelf vodka and amazing mojitos were great selling points. The appetizers were good sized to share for the 4 of us. We especially liked the crab dip and coconut shrimp. We sat outside at one of the tables with a fire pit and although it wasn't lit as it was fairly warm, it still made for a nice spot to people watch.

We had family come from all over for our son's wedding in Virginia Beach. Finding a restaurant to handle15 plus is no easy task. Never the less in VB on Memorial Weekend. Not to mention to find a place with good food and able to assist with a grandma in a wheelchair. Well this bar restaurant did it all. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The appetizers were spot on and everyone enjoyed their entries.

The drinks flowed and all had a great time..

My husband and I were looking for a place to eat and the first place we went had a 45 min wait. I looked to see what was close by and saw Hot Tuna was not too far. So we drove over there and went in. We were greeted at the entrance by staff and when we asked what was the wait time, there wasn't any. We asked to sit outside and were seated at a large table area with a fire pit in the middle. The waitress took our drink order (water) while we looked at the menu. I saw what was served to the couple next to us and asked which menu item it was. I had the she crab soup as an appetizer and the signature tuna as my main. The soup was Amazing! The tuna was cooked to my liking and served on a bed of mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy and veggies. It was almost as good as the soup (I really like she crab soup)! My husband had the tuna as well and it was cooked how he wanted. He agreed it was very good! Reasonably priced food and a nice atmosphere. Will definitely go back!

The HT was right across the road from my hotel so was a welcome change from the hotel food. This place gets really busy of an evening (weekends in particular) but it is worth it and is a testament to its food and service quality.
