I have been here multiple times since they have opened. Went about 3 weeks after they opened for the first time and they continue to impress me more and more. First atmosphere is perfect, it is a beautiful restaurant at a great location. It has that upscale look but they make you feel casual and comfortable. Its not your typical white table cloth stuffy steakhouse. Yes the food (great prices for what they serve) is upscale and plated beautiful, not to mention that is of course amazing and one of the best meals iv had in many of places around this country and yes i do travel a lot. The service has always been perfect and they are very good with remembering who we are. Owner/Chef is an amazing young man, he always tires to sneak out of the kitchen to make his rounds to the customers and always thank them for coming out and making sure everything is alright. Yes at times when we watch them cook ( they have a beautiful open kitchen that kind of gives you a show while you wait for your food) and he is busy he will atleast try and acknowledge as many customers as possible with a simple wave. You see a lot of people walk up to the kitchen window, and usually compliment him and his chefs on a amazing meal. Trust me i know, iv been one of them. His staff is very well trained, Adam who i believe serves and is front of the house manager, has always been helpful with us. Very Polite young man and always eager to sell us on one of the specials for the night. Overall, i hope this place can become a staple in Virginia Beach, I would hate to see this place go, and by the product and service they give you i do not believe that will be happening
Blue Pete's new owners have certainly set the stage for incredible dinning. This local favorite has undergone some major upgrades to include new kitchen, new heating/air, electrical, plumbing. The new pub bar with 12 taps is great. The wine bar in the Fox Den offers a cozy experience with the finest wines. There are several seating areas depending on number in the party and casual to dressy. The staff is the best and very knowledgeable in all areas, Attention to detail is a plus. Now for the food. Fresh vegetables and fruits from local farms are prepared to every one's liking. The fresh crab soup with lump is to die for. All breads and pastries are fresh up. The main courses are prepared to perfection. Again, details. What a wonderful experience for all.
I really wanted to like this place. I'm not a foodie, or a snob. Good things to like here, but I really wanted a good steak and I didn't get it. Martini was decent, fries were crisp and tasty, loaded baked potato was fair, service was friendly and acceptably attentive. My wife's cowboy burger was great. My Delmonico was disappointing at best. Ordered Medium-Rare, received Medium-Well. Looked like a NY Strip without benefit of insulating, moisturizing fat. Tough, dry, lousy piece of beef, and this is supposed to be a Steakhouse. I really wanted to like this place, but I won't be back.
The food is spectacular, the atmosphere is very welcoming, feels like you're at a friends house, ladies, the bathroom are awesome, very clean place. The entire staff and owners are so nice and are there for your every need. By far one of the best places I've Ever been. The menu also has a wide variety, something for everyone. the kids meals come in buckets that the little ones can keep. nice deck outside. I suggest trying this place out asap!

Food was good, service was good, HOSTESSES ARE TERRIBLE. They're supposed to text you when your table is ready yet it still took 25 minutes to seat us! Calamari is a little on the spicy side, bread sub-par, scallops exquisite. If you can get past the vacuous, apathetic hostesses, you'll be happy...IF....
