We got shrimp and fish tacos, shrimp basket and kid chicken fingers. The food was average. The view was great. We sat on the patio overlooking the river. The service was good. The price was a little high for the food. We probably will not go back.

The views were pleasant but the food came out way too quickly to have been freshly made. The food was extremely hot inside but fine to touch, leading me to believe it's pre-prepared and microwaved when ordered. Would not recommend this place.

After having a few beers at the nearby Stone Brewery, we stopped by here for a snack. The views are really nice with the James River right at your footsteps. The weather was perfect for eating outside. We thought that we would share the Alligator Bites, but turned out to be a poor choice. Maybe the rest of the menu... More

Just love this restaurant - for its exceptionally good seafood, appetizers, drinks, and other menu items. Also for the beautiful view, and great service. It is a fun place to dine, a great atmosphere, and a restaurant you will return to again and again!

Lovely lunch on the deck with my daughter. It was nice viewing the water and those out enjoying the beautiful day along the water. Our food and drinks were quite nice. Great service.

This restaurant serves really good food. We took a colleague there to celebrate her upcoming retirement. When we went, we sat outside and a band was playing. It was a fun atmosphere and the view made it even more enjoyable. The staff was really nice and friendly. I had the margarita and it was really good. My food was delicious... More

If you're looking for a fabulous view of the river, great music, and a fun atmosphere, then Conch Republic is a great stop... especially if all you want are drinks. The food is just ehhhhhh. After eating here last week, I noticed that all of our plates weren't even half empty at the end of dinner. I wouldn't choose it... More

Great view down the river, food was great as were the drinks. We were from out of town and the waitress gave us a bunch of recommendations. More laid back than the place next door, I think we were going to go to the other place but it looked fancier than we were feeling. This place was relaxed.

I was asked to join a friend here for lunch, had never been in. As the hostess was walking us to our table I noticed they had Crystal Hot Sauce on each table with the other condiments, which is my favorite and had never seen this anywhere before. The food was good, I had tuna and my friend had a... More
