Here's the facts. I'm married to an Italian, and let's face it...those people know good food! That food better be delicious, or they won't be back.
(I still remember being a newlywed and my extreme shock that my husband's family was willing to drive nearly ONE HOUR to a restaurant just to get the "best" ice cream. I would have been happy with any old ice cream parlor. Fifteen years of being married to an Italian and my tastes have become much more refined.)

So take it from a bunch of Italians with highly-evolved taste buds: these are our family's recommendations for a great Virginia Beach restaurant.

Want to eat well without paying an arm and a leg? Here are three more tips for getting deals at a Virginia Beach restaurant.
You can't go to Virginia Beach and not eat seafood. It's the perfect addition to your Virginia Beach resort vacation experience.
Here's a Virginia Beach Restaurant that more than lives up to its stellar reputation.
Rockafeller's combines F-R-E-S-H lobster, crab, shrimp, clams, fish--and any other seafood you can imagine-- with great service and atmosphere. Perched on an inlet, Rockefeller's is a favorite for the locals, many of whom pilot their boats and jet skis right up to the dock, then dip inside for a fabulous meal.
Don't miss their she crab soup (plenty of crab, not too creamy or peppery), and their crab cakes (all crab, no fillers), which you can get grilled, fried, or blackened.
Rockafeller's is a VERY popular Virginia Beach Restaurant, so if you have kids, come early and take advantage of their "Beat the Clock Specials": free salad and dessert with purchase of an Early Bird Entree. Other specials include Monday Night Prime Rib ($12.99), Thursday Night Lobster (2 one-lb. lobsters for $24.99). Sunday Brunch entrees start at $3.99.
While you're waiting for your meal, pass the time reading through the Sunny Day Guide and Virginia Beach Visitors Guide coupon books (you'll find them at the entrance to the restaurant) and look for coupons.
They often include a free postcard inside, so you can write to your friends and tell them what a great Virginia Beach family vacation getaway you're having...
Location: 308 Mediterranean Avenue, 757-422-5654, www.rockafellers.com.
This Virginia Beach restaurant is one of our kids' favorite places. It's right on the inlet so you can wave madly at the boaters passing by while waiting for your meal(yep--keeps 'em occupied). Last time we were there the kids walked up and down the dock counting jellyfish floating by.
Location: 2143 Vista Circle - 757-481-5757
