Blue Pete's new owners have certainly set the stage for incredible dinning. This local favorite has undergone some major upgrades to include new kitchen, new heating/air, electrical, plumbing. The new pub bar with 12 taps is great. The wine bar in the Fox Den offers a cozy experience with the finest wines. There are several seating areas depending on number in the party and casual to dressy. The staff is the best and very knowledgeable in all areas, Attention to detail is a plus. Now for the food. Fresh vegetables and fruits from local farms are prepared to every one's liking. The fresh crab soup with lump is to die for. All breads and pastries are fresh up. The main courses are prepared to perfection. Again, details. What a wonderful experience for all.

I have lived locally (in Virginia Beach) for the past five years and had not been to Seafood Harbor til this past weekend. It was delicious! Living in the area allows me to try several great seafood joints and this was one of the best I've had. I went with my husband and two sons so the boys can eat some seafood. The buffet was perfect for us. Their crab legs were juicy and perfectly seasoned. The wait staff was lovely and our waitress was very good, constantly keeping our drinks topped off. My husband and I shared a bottle of William Hill Chardonnay and it was one of the most delightfully light and fruity wines I have tasted. Perfect for Spring! Needless to say I am confident that we will become regulars at this place- thank you Seafood Harbor
What a grand restaurant for the seafood lover! Spacious, just a wee bit noisy, but the aroma coming out of the kitchen will put you in the right mood. So will the ample cocktails and extensive wine list. Service has always been top notch, even when delivered by a very young wait staff. But the food -- ah, the food! -- is where the magic really happens. Everything seems to be direct from the kreel to the table. The freshest of ingredients are in the hands of true artisans -- your dinner will look as lovely as it tastes. Sample desserts, too! A great place for a family gathering -- if the family really likes its seafood.
I am a Virginia Beach local (34years) and I can speak for majority when I say you are not wasting your money when you eat at Seafood Harbor. This place has been around for years and it just keeps getting better. When I have people visit VB I make sure they go to this restaurant because it is great cuisine. They end up loving the food just as much as I do. It may seem different from the outside looking in but you will smell and taste the seafood for yourself and be happy you did if you try it out.
I don't know why there are complaints?! Charlie's is a pleasant tradition, a dining adventure of days past. I've been going there since a child (likely around the time they first graced Shore Drive). It's a treat to have something that hasn't changed in quality or quaintness. The food is excellent! To the naysayers, I'm sorry they don't have valet parking! And maybe your should have your taste buds analyzed because it's for sure they're malfunctioning!
I visited here with the wife recently and we both felt we had found a favorite seafood restaurant in Virginia Beach. It was very crowded probably because it was dinner time but service was still prompt. The seating seemed random and the food was delicious and 100% worth a return visit. As discerning seafood fanatics, we are usually really tough on seafood restaurants, but this one won our hearts and our palates from the very first visit.
A friend said that I should try out this place. So I did and brought my sis along with me for the thrill. Well, for starters the salad bar blew my mind. I wasn't expecting it to be so much variety and choosing. The actual food buffet had a well rounded selection of vegetables and seafood. They also had a dessert bar that had pudding, jello, fruits, and baked items. Overall my experience was 5 thumbs up. Glad I checked it out.
We ate at Seafood Harbor during our hooneymoon in Virginia Beach. The only complaint my wife had was that we had to leave! She keeps talking about how good the crabs were! I liked them as well but the dessert bar was my icing on the cake. She even took a photo of the buffet before we left! Next year we will come back and try their breakfast. Scrambled eggs made to order and fresh OJ to go with it. HMMM I can taste it now!
Its my favorite place to eat on the strip. The other restaurants get old but this one is always refreshing. Each time i bring friends who have never been and we have a nice meal. I am not cheap but this restaurant is for the everyday family who didoes want to splurge on useless things like overpriced seafood. I am a regular and will continue to be. I think I am addicted to the crab legs!!!!
I shared a special anniversary with my husband of 25 years at seafood harbor last weekend. Words cannot express how much of a great experience we had in their. The buffet had everything I loved. The waitress showed us how to open the crab shells which was a plus. Also, the place was clean which is a big deal! It was a great night and I am glad we experienced our 25th at seafood harbor.
