Local Eats in Ocean View / East Beach

After a day at the beach, refuel at one of Ocean View’s local hot spots. Stop in to My Mama’s Kitchen for southern comfort foods like their ridiculously delicious fried chicken sandwich. If you are craving something from the sea, Captain Groovy’s offers delectable seafood dishes or grab a bite of some of Norfolk’s best barbeque at BAR-Q which is located inside Bold Mariner Brewing Company. Another local gem, COVA Brewing Co., brews coffee in the mornings for all the early risers and beer in the evening for all those needing an adult beverage. Hence their slogan, “something’s always brewing at COVA”.
