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.

We go to Blue every chance we get for several reasons. The service is consistently excellent, the specialty dishes are always innovative and delicious, and the atmosphere friendly and inviting. Last night was no exception!

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

We've eaten here 2 dozen times and every time it was an amazing experience. Chef Charles and crew do an absolute stellar job at making you feel like family and having the ultimate dining experience. I would not change anything about this place. Love it 6 stars!!!

Oh my goodness, where do I begin?? My boyfriend and I were visiting Virginia Beach for a whale watching adventure and found this food establishment via surfing reviews online. We're soooo glad we found and chose it and highly recommend it to others!! EVERYTHING WE DINED ON WAS AMAZING!! Even the wine and beer were fantastic and paired well with our meals! The Chef brought us a complimentary appetizer of sun dried figs and Port wine cheddar cheese on crostinis. For dinner, my boyfriend enjoyed the crab cakes with a baked sweet potato and I had the evening's special, duck with sun dried cherries in a port wine reduction, and asiago mashed potatoes....both had a fresh vegetable mix.....all phenomenal!! For dessert, we split chocolate bread pudding which had a chocolate sauce and crème anglaise....oh my....yumtastic!! The service (I believe our server was Jen?) was impeccable and attentive without being overly so! Thank you for sharing your amazingly tasty culinary talents with your dining patrons! I wish your establishment were closer to our home rather than 3 hours away! 🙂

Tonight’s special was a yellowfin tuna with a honey Dijon drizzle, along with Asiago mashed potatoes and julienned vegetables. It was cooked to perfection! Received great service with a smile, and enjoyed seeing chef out talking to everyone. Highly recommend!!!

My food was definitely 5 stars. I couldn't pick just one so I chose the combo and got flounder, crab cakes and shrimp. I would get it again and again. I loved how they offer complimentary appetizers. They were the perfect bite!!

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.
