From the farms of the Pungo to the depths of the Chesapeake Bay, the local Virginia Beach food scene is unmatched in freshness and flavor. Our fresh-caught seafood will make your taste buds sing; our craft beer will make a hop fanatic out of anyone; and the blue crabs here are a local delicacy that can’t be topped – except, of course, with a healthy pour of melted butter. We’re a seafood-obsessed, brunch-loving, oyster-slurping, orange-crushing, beer-tasting bunch of gastronomes who prefer our sustenance seasoned by the salty sea air of the Atlantic. And sometimes, between the fried rockfish and the Bloody Blues, we just need to dough-up and dig into a slice of ooey-gooey cheese-topped nirvana or sink our teeth into a melt-in-your-mouth cheeseburger.
When you're here, you're one of us. The world is your oyster, rockfish, she-crab soup, strawberry and everything else under the Virginia Beach sun. Be hungry, be adventurous, and dine like a Virginia Beach local.
The local flavors developed in Virginia Beach are an art form and the men and women who have carefully crafted them are, without a doubt, artists in every sense of the word. Whether using ingredients grown right here in our coastal soil, or putting a unique Va Beach spin on a classic dish, these are the chefs that make our culinary scene what it is - unique, delicious, fresh, and so Virginia Beach.
