Rockafeller's Restaurant Review: Got a craving for oysters Rockefeller? This landmark is where Virginia Beach natives and visitors converge for seafood in the raw as well as hearty plates of pasta, fish and clams casino along with views of boats on Rudee Inlet. Don’t miss the Caesar salad (enhanced by chilled shrimp, char-grilled chicken or locally-caught grilled tuna) or the signature specials: prime rib every Monday night and two one-pound Maine lobsters every Thursday night. The Tidewater Steamer (oysters, clams, shrimp, crab legs, crawfish, mussels, sausage, corn on the cob, broccoli, celery, onions and potatoes with Old Bay seasoning) and the Ultimate Seafood Platter (shrimp, scallops, crab cake and lightly fried fresh catch of the day) are great for those hankering for a taste of the sea. But landlubbers can opt for New York strip or barbecue chicken. Lunch is a local and tourist fave, too, as are Early Bird specials (3 p.m.-5:30 p.m. daily). But whenever you order, whatever you order, the she-crab soup is a must. Upstairs, the Little Rocks Bar & Patio offers space for overflow outdoor seating in season and private parties.
