Brought some visiting family here for dinner tonight, and we were all absolutely blown away! The care put into each dish and cocktail was immediately evident. The food was excellent- we all had different entrees and loved them all, sharing plates between us to sample different menu items. The 6 yo highly recommends the key lime pie and creme brûlée 😂 I would not hesitate to recommend this gem to anyone looking for seafood!

The food is always fresh and tasty. I love the sweet potato biscuits. The portion size is perfect, although I can never eat all my food. The owner and his staff are friendly and the service is fast. ALL customers are treated well. Did i say the food is AMAZING - everything. This is my favorite restaurant in the entire Tidewater area.

Visiting the area and really glad we found this gem! Greeted immediately by friendly staff, very accomodating to our two children, seated us quickly despite the restaurant being very busy. The food was excellent from appetizer to dessert, the wait staff were quick and knowledgeable. And the chef/owner came by to thank us for coming. Recommend this lovely small locally owned establishment!

Found this gem after such high Yelp reviews and glad we did. Walked in on Valentine's to a 20 minute wait. Had great specials. Owner/chef walked the tables frequently. Server was VERY knowledgeable with Celiac disease and had great gluten free options from appetizers to dessert. Romantic yet cozy. Best dinner we've had in a while and incredible service.

What an awesome spot. Have tried to go a few times but there's always too long of a wait. Have 3 little ones at home so waiting an hour to dine just isn't in the schedule. Snuck in tonight at 5:15 and only waited 10 min to be seated. Sat at the bar for dinner. Bartender was on point and we never waited for anything. The food was delicious. The Chef/Owner stopped by multiple times to check on how we were doing after each course. We couldn't have been more pleased with our dining experience. Will suggest this restaurant to anyone and will certainly be returning.

The she crab soup was phenomenal and i could cut my steak with a fork. Chef out in the dining room asking for feedback-which shows how much they care. Our waitress Katie was attentive, polite and helpful. Will definitely be back.

I first read about this wonderful restaurant one year ago. I live near Chic's Beach and work near Town Center. My life almost never takes me to this side of town. I looked for people I knew to go for me to try it out, but no one did. I own a small business and enjoy taking the staff out to a nice dinner for our Christmas gathering. Last year I was surprised to learn that no reservations were taken. Try as I might to get some angle that would make the owner/manager give in and say "sure...for YOU we'll make that reservation", I was never successful. So, this year I again phoned. Still no reservations taken, but in laying out my dilemma (party of 8, coming from the other side of the world...or of VB) it was suggested that if I would arrive by 5pm, there was "a 90% chance that you will be seated right away". They made clear...we cannot guarantee that, but.....So, I rallied my loyal coworkers, telling them that though we normally go to dinner at 630 or 7, that THIS place was going to be SO WORTH eating at an hour usually set aside for Blue Plate and Early Bird specials...Through the fog we travelled , reaching our rendezvous at 430 pm on Saturday night....errrr, afternoon. As suggested, we were thrilled to be seated immediately. Our server was amazing, attentive yet never over bearing. Through appetizers, soups, entrees, wine, coffee and dessert she guided us through, was always there before we needed something, and delightfully absent when we were carrying on. The food is AMAZING!!!! The atmosphere is nice, yet comfortable. Rockfish, oysters, cream of crab soup, flounder, scallops, crab cakes, Key Lime Pie, Chocolate Bread Pudding, Crème Brulee, Tempura Fried Asparagus....these were among the incredible things our table enjoyed. Not a single complaint...NONE!!!! Thank you for making our small gathering so special and memorable. Thank you for giving me reason to find myself on your side of the city much more often. I do not know the restaurant business, but I know this much....what you are doing WORKS!!! Please keep it up....and maybe consider a Blue Seafood and Spirit, CXB.Have a blessed Christmas season!Sonny Morrison

It’s rare we leave a restaurant glowing about everything; but from menu, to special accommodations for my weirdo vegan diet, to friendly attentive servers, great ambient music and most of all superb food, we are smitten. A go-to place for us for future trips here.

Hands down the best seafood I’ve ever had. We were looking for a nice place near the oceanfront where we were staying but I’m glad we ventured out a bit. Excellent food and service. This place is in a little strip shopping center and easy to miss. Very small place. Very busy. Not cheap but you get what you pay for. Food was amazing. Highly recommended!

Everyone, from the host to the Maître D’ made sure that my guest and I had a red carpet experience! The staff was VERY attentive, accommodating and welcoming - we felt like we have known them for years! The chef sent over an exquisite amuse bouche that consist of a gulf shrimp, that was resting on a bed of spicy cheese spread and mini crostini - it was A M A Z I N G! 😋💯Then my palate enjoyed their award winning “Crab Soup” that was very flavorful and FULL of crabmeat 😲 my entree selection, which consisted of the Fresh catch, sea scallops, Gulf shrimp, Eastern Shore oysters, and lump crab cake that was perfectly married with a vegetable medley and a loaded sweet potato with apricot butter 😋😋Highly recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
