Went for dinner and was very impressed. Restaurant is not fancy at all but the food is delicious. We both had the crab cakes and they measure up to some of the best I have had.

Unusual but delicious clam chowder. Service is very good and our waiter was friendly and pleasant. Rustic decor situated on the water. Daily specials. Seafood and bar food plentiful. Extensive beer and wine menu.

Went to this place for dinner one evening with friends. Had the special that was 1 pound of shrimp for about $11. All the food was great and the atmosphere was fantastic. I'll be back to this place every time I'm in Norfolk.

I went to Chicks again during my weekend get-a-way ... I still really like this place. I service was good. the new crush drinks were very good. This visit was a no drama visit which I consider a plus. I got exactly what I wanted and expected. Good food and no drama. I'll be back.

Started with the she crab soup which had good flavor, but not sure I'd order it again. I went with the lunch special grilled and blackened Mahi. Grilled perfectly, still juicy and nice amount of blackening seasoning, very tasty 😋 my husband and his friend both ordered the fried flounder BLT. Both men were pleased. Nicely fried and a large...

The food, the view, the service were all top notch. It must be a good place to work because I interacted with a half dozen employees and they were all wearing smiles and concerned about my satisfaction. Seafood is really good, but I did not expect the filet to be out of this world delicious!

Had a sign out front for 12 dollar crab leg special. Server says it is not until 4 pm. OK, no big deal. Order them anyway for $20+ . They come out cold and overcooked. Server kept forgetting something on our order throughout the meal and then she lost my credit card. Finally found it after 5 minutes of searching..... More

This is a fun spot to hangout with friends. The beer is good and the food is, too! If nothing else go for the sunset view! Given its location, the price of a dozen Salties (local oysters) is really good. Totally relaxed atmosphere. After dinner hours the outside bars are always slam packed and full of young people having drinks... More
