We try to get to Surf Rider whenever we visit VA Beach. It's on Newtown Road across from the Homewood Suites in a little strip plaza, so it is somewhat easy to bypass. From the outside it doesn't look all that fancy...but we're fine with...More

The Surf Rider on Shore Drive has become a little disappointing. The view is its best feature. The fish and chips dish was cooked with the skin on the flounder pieces, giving it an unpleasant taste. The potato wedges were very greasy.

From the outside it does not look like much but the seafood was great for the price. I have not had a better crab cake.

Love their Shrimp and Huge hunk of Fresh Broccoli that is always cooked to perfection. Food is consistent and very reasonable. Favorite of many of my local friends.

went with my dad, my hubby and son...My dad is all about fried oysters, and we both ordered those..What came to our table were little nuggets, barely recognizable as fried oysters...Full of shell..Poor value for the money. We'll give em a miss next time..

Each visit has been very pleasing. Good seafood in general but the best crab cakes in town. Hush puppies are the best as well.
