Visit Rockafeller’s during Virginia Beach Restaurant Week, October 2-8 to feast upon a 3-course dinner or a 2-course lunch at one low price. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy some of the seafood dishes that make us famous along with a delectable appetizer and a tantalizing homemade dessert. To sweeten the deal, we’ll also feature a wine special to complement your dining experience. Pair your courses with one of our house wines for only $20 a bottle. It’s the best deal at the beach!
Rockafeller’s Restaurant is proud to introduce Joy Summers as its new Executive Chef. Joy has been with Rockafeller’s for 12 years, holding every position (except valet). Her experience, combined with her passion for cooking, motivated Joy to put herself through culinary school at the Art Institute of Virginia Beach. After her graduation, Rockafeller’s was more than pleased to place its new menu, still full of traditional favorites, in her capable hands. “I just enjoy cooking. I think it’s fun to try and bring things together that typically are not paired.”
Joy Summers has a knack forcreating interesting flavor profiles that give Rockafeller’s menu and Chalkboard Specials a new flair.
One of the most popular items that Rockafeller’s offers is our desserts – each one lovingly made on site and from scratch. Due to the popularity and the continuous requests from guests that they wanted to buy whole cakes or pies, we started our “Dessert to Go” program five years ago. Now we have expanded to selling them at the Holiday Markets at the Old Beach Farmer’s Market. Please make sure you check out our offerings in the Dessert section of the Menu and remember to order your for all of your special occasions year round.
Sustainable Seafood is seafood that is either caught or farmed in ways that consider the long term viability of harvested species and the well being of the oceans, as well as the livelihoods of fishery dependent communities.
We made a commitment to incorporate whenever possible items that are considered sustainable to our menu. Please note the “S” icon by menu items that fall into this category!
We take great pride in helping out those in need and being active in making Virginia Beach a better place. Through several local organizations; the Potter’s House, Judeo Christian Outreach Center, People in Need (PIN), and our Holiday Program with Virginia Beach Social Services we are able to work hand in hand with those who have fallen on hard times and need assistance getting back on their own two feet. Everyone including the owner and staff participate in these programs.
