Hello all,

We'll be in the area 8/31 & 9/1 and looking for a really good, casual (maybe waterfront?) seafood place for crab cakes, she-crab soup, etc for lunch, possibly dinner. I grew up on the Gulf Coast, and I know that sometimes, the best seafood comes from dingy little holes in the wall that no one would think of stopping in unless they'd heard about it from friends. Looking for maybe that kind of place. We'll be staying in Williamsburg, but day-tripping around the Roads area.

Thanks for any help!

There's a FANTASTIC place called sting-ray's right out of the bay bridge tunnel on the eastern shore. It's easily better then any place I know in Norfolk. It's kind of out of the way, but mighty tasty.

On Rudee Inlet: Rudee's or Rockafellers. On Lynnhaven Inlet: Chick's or Dockside.

Well, you can go to Nicks on Laskin road for the total dive atmosphere and excellent flounder. Also, I really enjoyed crabcakes at the Surf Rider. They don't have views but the food is solid. Both places are in Virginia Beach near the ocean front.

Surf Rider in Hampton. It's on the water in the back of a neighborhood.

A.W. Shucks in the Ghent area of Norfolk. It's a hole in the wall type place with amazing food.

If you make it to Virginia Beach you have to try Margie and Rays on Sandbridge Road, it fits in great with that local hole in the wall description you are looking for. They are famous for their she crap soup and large portions of great food

Harpoon Larry's on Pacific Ave is another hole in the wall but they have awesome oysters.

I second A.W. Shucks. Great seafood and they even have a menu of all different kinds of oysters from various regions.

If you want to buy your own, D&M Seafood in Va Beach has decent crabs to steam yourself.

D&M is out of business now! There's a seafood place on Pr. Anne & Nimmo if you want to buy fresh seafood.
