Dine Like a Local

 

From the farms of Pungo to the depths of the Chesapeake Bay, the local Virginia Beach food scene is unmatched in freshness and flavor. Our seafood is always in season, 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. 

When you're here, you're one of us. The world is your oyster, rockfish, she-crab soup, strawberry and anything else under the Virginia Beach sun. Be hungry, be adventurous, and see what dining like a Virginia Beach local is all about.
