This is a perfect summer restaurant, especially if you love seafood. Great items and pretty good selection. Also the crab legs taste great and were cooked perfectly.

I see there are some mixed reviews here, but I found them to be a good restaurant. I would definitely come back and probably even recommend them to other people.

I love going to eat at the beach! Seafood Harbor was really good, and I rather enjoyed the atmosphere. It was quieter and more relaxing than a lot of places at the oceanfront, so if you're looking for something different than I recommend

Some of the things I liked about it. First and mostly, the food was very good and you get a lot so it's definitely worth it. You want to make sure you are hungry before going here. The price was just about average for this type of restaurant, so I can't really find a way to complain about that. Also, they serve drinks if that is something you look for when going out. Seafood Harbor is also literally right across the street from the beach. We had the best time here, and I am confident to say go here and find out for yourselves.

If you like crab legs, this is the place to go. The quality was great, and the buffet was stocked and hot the whole time. And to top it all off, the service was perfect.

Went here yesterday evening and it was overall very pleasant. Good items on the buffet, friendly staff and service, and a unique atmosphere. Well done, and will definitely be back.

Everyone in my family loved the buffet. My kids are picky but they had so much fun picking and opening the real steamed crabs. The smiles they had on their faces made going to seafood harbor worth it. Its priceless to see your kids light up. They had watermelon and fruits on their dessert bar which I thought was pretty clever considering how unhealthy Americans tend to be. They also had fresh foods on the buffet that were tasty! We didn't have any complaints and would go back anytime! Its only seasonal tho so if you go make sure its during the warm months!!

This place had all of my favorite dishes: Crabs, fresh fish, chicken, clams, squid, bbq ribs, macaroni n cheese, soups, salad, fruits, desserts and a loaded bar! My kind of buffet! The dinner crowd consisted of tourist and local families and was perfect for a relaxing getaway. It wasnt overcrowded like some of the other places I have been to. You cant really go wrong with Seafood Harbor.

The first time I went it was with my kids. My daughter is a picky eater but I didn't hear her complain not 1 time. On the other hand my teenage son who is an athlete had 5 plates of food! I was reserved at first because its hard to find nice seafood buffets that I can afford. What sold me was the steamed crab legs. I went back a few times since then and have become a "regular customer" Try it out for yourself!!

I've spent a total of 7 months in Hampton Roads and this is by far the best bang for your buck. Ive tried the other seafood place in town and it's a lot higher priced (especially if you have children) & the cooks & servers are never as gracious or as accommodating as Seafood Harbor. But thank goodness there is a decent reasonable restaurant like this in the VB. Great crab legs, oysters, grilled fish and an entire buffet to choose from.

We've been ready to give up on fresh seafood because its just not like it used to be. But now, Seafood Harbor keeps the desire alive. Treat yourselves because we all deserve it and go here as much as possible. Hey Im a true skeptic and I do. The food is all delicious, service is attentive, the bar has much to choose from. Your experince will only be good memories.

I have never written a review before so please bare with me folks. Pretty much I just wanted to say that I had a great time and experience at Seafood Harbor. Everyone was friendly and personable. My waitress even told me that they had been there over 10 years, which I find amazing these days! This was the first time I had been inside the restaurant and was pleasantly surprised to see the spaced out dining room floor and the decorative water shapes wall. I am from the area and truly believe that this is the way to go for great seafood. Overall the atmosphere is happy and enjoyable. Not to mention the SEAFOOD!

The catch of the day is always different everytime I visit Seafood Harbor. My last visit makes it my 4th time eating there with my family. My dad always jokes about the ribs they have their because ever since he has had Seafood Harbors sweet ribs he has tried to make his ribs taste the same way! We love eating there so much that it has become a family tradition each summer.

my gf and i went here for our second date and it was really good, she was a little worried at first because she isnt a huge fan of seafood unless she has a lot to choose from and we did- she had the buffet and the menu that had shrimp scampi (one of her favs) and a combo called surf and turf which i got and she ate half of; the lobster tail dipped in butter was mouth watering and served with the steak, it couldnt be beat. she ordered the combination platter which had shrimps, oysters, and mussels. She didnt really know what mussels were but when she tried them she couldnt believe how awesome they were. we had a really good time for an inexpensive night out. she said the next time she gets to choose where we go out, it wont even be a choice!

I have never wrtiiten a review before in my entire life. But I must try and save the next person or family from walking to the near resturaunt. That location is the only reason I can imagine that this place exists. I have an expense account and still demanded a refund for this offensive display. It is a shame to the widlife itself to be served in such a lazy cold and cheap place. Hotel vending machines would have been better.

I should have taken time to read reviews first. After looking at reviews from others after my visit I have learned that when 5 stars appear that it is at the owners hand.Therefore it turns out that tonight was a positive event for me. I now know how to read though reviews and understand the truth. I suggest the owner stop writing 5 star reviews and focus on basics of food service.

Public be aware not to trust average scores. Read the reviews and decide who is honest.

PS; I hate that this site insists that I atleast give one star.

Fresh buffet with attendants constantly refreshing. Great service always with a smile. Even on my visits where I was difficult, they quickly accommodated my every (sometimes ridicules) requests. Understandably in these tuff times the other (not so fresh) Seafood buffets ( I will not bother naming) that's name seems to accompany EVERY bad review, has resorted to slander. I have been dining here every time I visit beach for last 10 years and yet to have had a bad experience.

I am a resident of NYC and have enjoyed some of the best cuisine in the world. I am hard pressed to find a better buffet with fresher seafood anywhere on the oceanfront. The Alaskan snow crab legs were huge and meaty and our waitress even showed people how to open them with ease. The assortment of fried, steamed, and broiled seafood items was exceptional, and the large variety of non-seafood items was great too. I did notice the items change periodically and have noticed different items on the buffet on my various trips, however I appreciate their effort to change the variety and supply the freshest catch of the day.

My family and I would highly recommend this establishment as we have enjoyed our many dining experiences at Seafood Harbor over the last 10 years. We've even joined them for Breakfast and were impressed with the vast selections on all their buffets. In July a filling lunch here followed by nap time on the beach is a dream come true.

Don't let the sour individual with OCD about complaining about this lovely restaurant dissuade from enjoying the fine dining at SEAFOOD HARBOR.

For $3 more, I could have (and did the next nite) go to Capt. George's. This was the worst seafood place I've ever been -- and the price for the dried up stuff was a "slap in the face". I don't mind paying for a "nice" seafood dinner (and there were 5 adults), but I want fresh seafood and the pans kept at least 1/2 full. The ladies bathroom was "nasty", dirty, no toliet tissue and the place smelled horrible. I would never recommend this place and will never return.

First of all, Seafood Harbor is excellent. The video ad on citysearch is accurate; and the food is as delicious as it looks in the video. I can't believe the reviews I see on this website. To me, it seems as though one person had a bad experience and left a bunch of bad reviews...which is sad. I go to Virginia Beach every year and have eaten at Seafood Harbor too many times to count...NEVER having a bad experience. The buffet is huge and amazing...with so many choices...and how many buffets do you know that offer all-you-can-eat Alaskan Snow Crab Legs?! Deee-LISH!!! This restaurant is so close to the beach that you can go, eat, and spend the rest of the day at the beach without getting hungry since the portions are so big. Everything I have tried on the menu has been cooked perfectly, and everyone I have gone with has been 100% satisfied. The food is fresh, the restaurant is clean, and the service is great!! What more could you ask for? I vote for SEAFOOD HARBOR as having the best seafood (and steaks!!) in Virginia Beach. Try it and you will surely agree! Bon appetit!!!

On our first night in virginia beach we decided to stop in at seafod harbor for dinner. We found the place in one of the free guide books you get at the hotel. Their ad claims they are the "Most highly recommended buffet on the beach" or some nonsense like that. They go on to list a great selection of seafood items to be included on their buffet. So we decided to go only to be very disappointed. Disappointed so much that we felt like we were deceived by their ad. The buffet did not include several of the items they had listed in the ad and there is just no way this place is recommended by anyone who has ever ate there. To top it all off they wanted to charge me 7.99 each for my 3 year old 4 year old to from the bar. Ended up spending 80.00, not including any alcoholic beverages for 2 adults and 2 kids. Wish we went fast food instead of this dump!

On our first night in virginia beach we decided to stop in at seafod harbor for dinner. We found the place in one of the free guide books you get at the hotel. Their ad claims they are the "Most highly recommended buffet on the beach" or some nonsense like that. They go on to list a great selection of seafood items to be included on their buffet. So we decided to go only to be very disappointed. Disappointed so much that we felt like we were deceived by their ad. The buffet did not include several of the items they had listed in the ad and there is just no way this place is recommended by anyone who has ever ate there. To top it all off they wanted to charge me 7.99 each for my 3 year old 4 year old to from the bar. Ended up spending 80.00, not including any alcoholic beverages for 2 adults and 2 kids. Wish we went fast food instead of this dump!

Pros: Fast service

Cons: Overpriced. Poor food selection. False advertisement.

Seafood Harbor is the worst seafood buffet I have ever been to. I totally agree with the last BAD report. As to the response to the last report, when we went there were no sea scallops -- there were only fried bay scallops that tasted raunchy. Also, I have never seen a seafood buffet that did not even have whole steamed clams. The mussels were tiny and tasted bad -- same with some of the tiny shrimp which were mush and tasted bad. And the so-called crab cakes were tasteless and burned. As with the last report, most of the food was cold -- the only decent item on the buffet was the snow crab legs, but even they were over-salted -- all else was junk! The so-called fish fillet was only one chopped piece of fillet that was unrecognizable. They also had BBQ ribs, which were so tough it hurt my teeth to chew the small piece I tried and left the rest behind. And nothing was labeled -- half of what was there was unrecognizable. Also, it is not the best seafood buffet in Virginia Beach -- Captain George has them beat by a long shot! Maybe it's not directly on the beach, but I'll drive the distance. And when it comes to the salad and desert buffets -- they were skimpy at best. White lettuce with a few toppings. I didn't know Little Debbie was your cake baker! And the pudding came from an instant box! I don't know how you people can get away with saying you're the best! Besides the food, the atmosphere was dark, dirty, and tables crowded together so you can barely walk. Is it your policy to have the wait staff lie and say they are better than other buffets in the area? We specifically asked how they compare to Captain George and were told they were much better than Captain George. The lying goes as far as telling us when we asked for Ginger Ale that the waiter told us he can make it up special for us -- using Sprite with a splash of Coke! Where is the Ginger Ale in that! This is not a buffet for discriminating palates!

Pros: None

Pros: Friendly Management

Our family has vacationed at Virginia Beach for the last 5 years and this is the best buffet that we have been too. I have never written a review before but after reading the negative one before me, I felt I had to set the record straight. This is the best value and selection for a buffet on the boardwalk. There are cheaper options that claim to have the same selection, but it is all a lie! Just go to Seafood Harbor and enjoy your meal!

This place is awful. All of the food was cold, most of the food was overcooked and the restaurant was dark and uninviting. We assumed that the really dark setting was to mask what you were really eating. We were only there 5 minutes before we asked for bill. Didn't want to make a scene, so we paid $60 for food that was inedible. Looking back at it, no one asked if there was anything wrong. Probably because they already knew that there buffet was the worst in VA Beach.
