With the largest covered patio at the beach, we love coming to Calypso on a nice day to keep the good vibes rolling. The panoramic oceanfront views provide the perfect backdrop for a regular lineup of some of our favorite Va Beach bands, and pairs perfectly with discounted drinks and appetizers.

As the curators of the original recipe, the Orange Crush is reason enough to try out Waterman’s Happy Hour. Add in the $3.50 fish tacos, with either fried fish or blackened tuna, mango-jicama slaw and Sriracha aioli and we wouldn’t miss this one.

Small and unassuming, Big Sam’s, located in the Rudee Inlet Marina, serves up local seafood that is as fresh as the waters around it. For Happy Hour, try the East Coast Oysters served raw or steamed. If you’ve never tried oysters before, go for raw to really get the full palette of flavor that comes only from our waters.
