We recommend restaurants where we consistently experience great food and good service. Here are our top favorite, locally owned locals' favorites, not in order of preference:

~ Casual Dining ~
Bella Monte International Marketplace and Cafe
Wonderful continental menu with Italian focus. Enjoy the piano player while you relax in the muted lighting. You'll find something to take home for the babysitter or dog sitter in the gift shop. Parking is available.

Croc's 19th Street Bistro
Cheerful ambiance with Lebanese influenced menu that is vegetarian friendly. Virginia's first 'green' dining establishment. Easy walking distance from the Inn and across the street from the Virginia Beach Convention Center. Parking is available.

Seafood Located at the Rudee Inlet Marina. Very popular all year round. You can walk here in about 20 minutes and valet parking is available.

Cute, historic Virginia Beach cottage with porch or inside seating. Heaters on the porch for fall and spring, gas fireplace in season. Less than a mile walk from the Inn. Parking behind the building.

Waterman's Surfside Grille
Located at 5th Street on the boardwalk. It has both outside and inside seating, but the inside seats are terraced, so each has a view of the water. Less than a mile walking distance from the Inn, and valet parking is available.

~ Upscale ~
The chef is formerly of Le Cirque in New York City and was executive chef at two upscale restaurants in Aspen, Colorado before moving back home to Virginia Beach. Parking lot in front of restaurant.

Quiet, romantic lighting. Service is impeccable and this restaurant is within easy walking distance of the Inn. Good mix of seafood and non-seafood entrees. Excellent wine selections. Valet parking.

~ Laid Back ~
Big Sam's Inlet Cafe and Raw Bar
Right next to the Virginia Beach fishing pier where whale and dolphin watching, parasailing and rocket boats depart. This is where the fishermen go to eat fish! Extremely laid back. Walking distance from the Inn or park in the lot in front.

Icehouse Restaurant
Locals bar and tavern. Good for watching games with other sports fans. Good food reasonably priced.
