Me and my husband love seafood! We wanted to find a legit restaurant outside of the tourist traps. Blue is fantastic! The food was fresh and seasoned to perfection. Unique items like the apricot butter will keep me coming back. The service was exceptional and the staff was friendly! The beer and wine selection mafe us super happy!

We tried this restaurant...thanks to Suri. When we walked in, I asked the couple on front of us “have you been here before?” She replied “no we saw it had 5 star reviews, so we thought we would try it.” How about that! LOL. My father said the “raw oysters and the she crab soup were the BEST” he ever had! He’s long been a Seafood connoisseur. Sorrily I’m not a fan of seafood, however the salad dressing was the best I ever had! It was a house made italian-garlic-balsamic, and the salad was full of fixings. They also have complimentary sweet potato biscuits with apricot butter, that are to absolutely die for! I ordered the porterhouse pork chop, with cheesy mashed potatoes and vegetables. The cheesy mashed potatoes were a culinary delight, for sure! My father got the broiled seafood plate that consisted of scallops, a large crab cake, and a white fish. In his words “they are generous with the crab in the crab cake, and in the She crab soup.” His dinner was served with a white sweet potato and vegetables. For desert we both opted for the cream brûlée - which was absolutely to die for. I have had cream brûlée twice before and really did not care for it, but since we were trying this place for the first time, I decided to try it. It was masterful!!! They have a chocolate bread pudding, that the owner highly recommended, however, I gave up chocolate for Lent. I liked that the owner brought out complimentary appetizers, and talked freely with the customers. Our only complaint would be, it’s too small...but the owner stated “we thought about expanding, but we don’t want to lose...what we have here.” We got there when it opened at 4. By the time we left, the waiting area was full, and people were waiting in line outside...in the rain. The bar area is a delight, and and the bartender was superb! Highly recommend 5�����. I will be trying the chocolate bread pudding after lent ends. What an absolute pleasure!

This was our first visit to Blue, but most certainly won’t be our last. The food and service were excellent, with a visit from the Chef who offered us a complimentary crab appetizer. The sweet potatoe biscuits are the best we have ever eaten. Can’t wait to go back.

Came here on a recommendation n was not disappointed. We sat at the bar n Matt took care of us!! Started out with the calamari app. I then had the crab cakes, my husband had some seafood dish n said it was great!! The chef brought out our food (which I thought was very nice) I had never heard of a white sweet potato before, but let me tell you, it was delish!! We ended with creme brûlée. Matt was very entertaining n personable. We def enjoyed our night. Thank you! I almost forgot about the sweet potato biscuits, with the apricot butter—-OMG

So glad that we found this locally-owned restaurant. Food and service were both excellent, and really liked that the Chef was in and out of the dining room chatting it up with customers. He obviously has a large local following, and as a restaurant owner in Delaware, I love to find and support locally-owned businesses. Those in the Virginia Beach area need to put this great spot on their radar!!!

Fabulous!I absolutely love BLUE! Went to dinner last night solo and love this restaurant! I ate at the bar and enjoyed their awesome crab cakes and tempura shrimp which were amazing. I met so many wonderful locals there. The food was absolutely delicious, the atmosphere was inviting and the service was excellent. From the appetizers, to the main course and even the desserts and cocktails were perfect. This is a must place to discover a fabulous neighborhood favorite.

The reviews are all legit! We drove out there from the oceanfront based on Yelp. We got there at 5 on a Saturday and it was already packed. We took a seat at the bar and had great service from Reed and Shannon. My hubby and I took advantage of happy hour specials and had a breadth of apps. Don't miss the crab cakes, the tempura shrimp or the crab soup. We loved it so much we bought extra to go! Literally the best seafood I've ever had. I wish we lived closer!

Local gresh seafood prepared by Chef Charles with simple and fresh way but with a definite expert touch on seasoning. The tempura battered shrimp is ligbt and delicate with extrememly fresh jumbo shrimp. The asiago mash was smooth as silk and had a creamy, yet, bright asiago flavor. The roasted tomato she-crab soup had a unique spin on the soup and gave it a crab red hue. Even the croutons on the salad were kitchen crafted. Attention to detail is evident everywhere, even in the cocktails. Fresh, muddled fruit and mint in both the Pinapple Mohito and the old-fashioned. Go for the local feel, Chef Charle's warmth and hospitality, as well as his excellent cuisine. Come back because it feels like "your place". Don't come back on Sun or Mon...because that is their weekend, resting up to see you once again.

I was first turned onto this gem in March by a friend's recommendation. It unfortunately took until July for my schedule to permit me and my father to experience a lovely and high quality meal. Prior to our phenomenal crab soup, the chef brought out tastings of shrimp ceviche. The flavor was out of this world! I would order the ceviche if it were a part of the reguar menu. The Seafood Belle Haven and the Salmon Oscar were top notch. I'm not quite sure how, but we managed to share a creme brulee, that was topped with blueberries, to finish the evening. The quality of food and service could not have been better. I look forward to dining again and exploring more of the menu.

How in the world did I not know about this gem until recently? I saw some friends posting about it and remembered enough of the name (Blue something) to investigate and make out for a Wednesday date night. The space is small, but comfortable. The food was AMAZING! Our server (Jen) was fantastic and I applauded her flawless execution of the 'tomato and kalamata olive cream sauce' special description (say that five times fast). The chef/owner (Charles) was friendly and talkative, making sure to visit each table at least once if not multiple times. Word is the place is packed during the summer months, so if you want to try it GO NOW! We can't wait to go back and truly hope Charles and Jen take our suggestion of adding a few more raspberries to the chocolate bread pudding. Thank you for a great experience! We can't wait to go back!

If we could give this place 10 stars, we would. While visiting the Virginia Beach area we googled, nearby restaurants. Thankfully this was nearby. When we first saw it was a small restaurant we had a slight hesitation. I'm so glad we went on in. The Crab Cake and everything we had was off the chain delicious, and we have been to many, many seafood restaurants in our lifetime. The sweet potato biscuits with apricot butter is one of the best thing we have ever had. The owner will bring a sample of an appetizer that you didn't order to your table. We didn't have to ask for this or that, everything was taken care of perfectly. Well done Blue!

My boyfriend and I are new to Virginia so we have been trying several restaurants as we learn the area. I noticed Blue had a 5 star rating on yelp out of about 286 people. I considered that pretty promising so we gave it a try. First honest reaction is the place is pretty small but very clean and well decorated. It seems they have out grown their building and should perhaps find a larger establishment to match their popularity. Granted we were there on a Saturday night. There isn't enough room for more than 5 people to wait up front so we had to wait 30-45 minutes else where then come back, as did others. Again, I will say with the growing popularity I DO think they would benefit from some sort of reservation or call ahead system or a larger restaurant. Otherwise, they might miss out on a lot of customers that want BLUE for dinner but don't feel like waiting 45 minutes on a particular night. With that said once we were seated our waitress was extremely friendly and the wait for food didn't seem too long. While we waited the chef brought out a complimentary appetizer that was delicious! He also came back later to describe dessert options. THE FOOD WAS FANTASTIC! Fresh, perfectly seasoned. If I had to pick something to complain about it would be that the portions aren't very large compared to many restaurants. Even the sweet potato biscuits were delicious but tiny. So don't go there starving. All in all I can't give the place less than a 5 because it's clear they work very hard to put quality in their food as well as their service.

We were disappointed when Burton's closed. On their last night a stranger at next table told us of Blue Seafood and Spirits. We had dinner last night and now have a new favorite restaurant. Cooking with �. Atmosphere of fun. One door closes and a better one opens.

Our favorite restaurant! Fantastic seafood! But even the pork chop is fabulous. Always great service. The owner is always there with a small bite before you order. The sweet potato biscuits are delicate and amazing. Best crab cake ever! And the best she crab soup we've found so far. It's a small place, so don't assume you'll get a table!

First time coming here. There was a wait but rightfully so. The food was so fresh and very well cooked. Perfect portion size and the crab soup was awesome! The owner was very nice too and brought us appetizers personally/made sure everything was ok. Definitely recommend!

How could you not love this place. The food was absolutely amazing and was cooked to pefection. The chef/owner was so personable and made sure all of his customers were taken care of. Our server Jordan was awesome. The restaurant was very clean and all the employees worked together smoothly. The atmosphere was nice and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My drink, summer dream, was a tad strong and could have used a bit more pizzazz as far as aesthetics go, but still very good. And the place is small, and filled up quick but that's because the service is so amazing I am sure everyone in the area wanted to be there. If you are in the area of Virginia beach my husband and I recommend this wonderful restaurant. Worth every penny!

The best seafood in town! Charles is so creative and prepares the most awesome specials. His wife, Shannon, makes the most amazing desserts! The staff is fun, but professional. We go to lots of restaurants, but Blue is tops. Highly recommend!

This was our first time here. It was delicious and I can't say enough about the customer service. Thank you for giving my husband a t-shirt after he spilled his drink all over his shirt (and the you didn't even charge for the drink). W also appreciated the free appetizer. Everyone love their meals. Sarah is a great waitress.

This place is great! I took my fiancée here for her birthday tonight and we had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We are vacationing in Virginia Beach and looked up seafood restaurants to try before venturing out. The staff, drinks list, specials and service are all top notch. The chef brought over a few little morsels for us and exchanged a few pleasantries. It may seem hokey to some people, but it was a really nice touch and was much appreciated. The seafood was fresh and outstanding. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Waited for a table for thirty minutes and it was worth the wait. Delicious crab cake, oysters, and flounderstuffed with crabmeat. The baked white sweet potato was like eating dessert. A great neighborhood restaurant. Wonderful service. The owner stops by every table to ask about your meal. We will definitely dine there again.

Great place! It's nice to find a kid friendly place with great adult food and service. The head chef even came out with a bowl of toys for my four year old to pick from! She became instantly smitten with him because of the attention! My mom had some of the best oysters ever, and my swordfish was perfect--and the mashed potatoes were to die for! We'll be back for sure!**We came back again now in November and it was just as fantastic! My now 5 year old couldn't wait to pick her knick-knacks from the bowl; my husband who "doesn't like seafood" said everything was wonderful; and the service was great! The owner even followed us into the parking lot when my daughter left her toys at the table. It is especially lovely to have a place that welcomes kids and still provides stellar food!**

This place is amazing. If you like fresh seafood and a cool atmosphere go check it out! The Chef is great and I noticed him making his rounds to all the tables to make sure customers are enjoying their experience. You don't receive that type of service at many places around here, go check it out I promise you will not be disappointed. A+ service from the entire BLUE crew.

My fiancee and I dined at Blue last night for the first time.... Tanya was our super attentive server. For a Friday night, we only waited about fifteen minutes, but it was WELL WORTH the wait once inside. I had the "Eastern Shore" dinner which consisted of lightly battered fried oysters and a "melt in your mouth" crab cake and baked sweet potato. My fiancée had the salmon with regular mashed potato. We both had the vegetable of the evening, which was a steamed medley. Tanya recommended the hibiscus martini which was also amazing. After dinner we split the most awesome slice of key lime pie.... Might I add that seeing one of the chef/owners going table to table and greeting everyone was a nice touch. As you were reading the menu he dropped off a small plate containing two crackers with smoked shark spread....All in all an amazing night.... We'll be back!!
