Fresh Seafood in Virginia Beach

Does anyone know where I can shop for fresh quality seafood in Virginia Beach and the surrounding areas? No mention of Krogers, Farm Fresh, or Food Lion, please. I've tried looking at their selections and wasn't impressed.

  1. At the foot of the Lesner Bridge, where Shore Drive goes over Lynnhaven inlet, there is a restaurant/seafood market called Dockside, I believe. Its on the landward side of Shore Drive, on the east side of the bridge. Right on the water.

    1. Go to D&M Seafood, Independence Blvd near Pleasure House Road. The have a very large selection. I have always gotten great crabmeat there.

        D&M used to be one of my favorites. They have lost the freshness factor. Fish look dry and old. I still use them for crabs but buy my fish and oysters elsewhere,

      2. If you are closer to the oceanfront, there is a fantastic new seafood market in the shopping center at 36th and Pacific. Fresh, fresh, fresh! Sorry, I can't remember the name - same center as Pelon's Tacos. Also, good selections at the VB Seafood Market on Mediterranean, between 17th and 18th.

        1. Welton's Fresh Seafood Market @ none other than The Northend!
          (757) 428-6740 - 3621 Pacific Ave Virginia Beach, VA

          D&M is fine too; however,Welton's is newer & the location is more convenient for Northenders.

          1. Haven't been but hear that George's SEafood in Norfolk on Chesapeake Blvd is good. Friends go there and I have had their seafood, have been meaning to go myself.
