Should be a great hangout next summer ! 12/23/2011

Blue Petes re-opened recently after being closed for over a year. I never went there when they were in business before. I decided to try it out last night and was impressed. The staff is really trying hard and the prices were decent for this area. It was dark when I got there but I could tell by all the outside decking that this places will be great next summer for outside dining/drinking. It's a little tough to find and is located on a twisty backroad off Sandbride Road....so be careful at night ! It's worth the visit and should really come into it's own once the warm weather returns ! more

BACK UP TO SNUFF... 5/1/2009

HADN'T BEEN THERE IN YEARS (HEARD IT HAD GONE DOWN HILL). NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH. MY PARTNER HAD LAMB THAT SHE RAVED ABOUT...AND I TRIED THE ROCKFISH WITH A SPECIAL SAUCE, THAT WAS FANTASTIC. THE DRINKS WERE GOOD SIZED, AND THE NEW AMBIENCE WAS FANTASTIC. THE NEW/OLD LOUNGE AREA, WITH RUSTIC STYLING, FIREPLACE AND COMFY CHAIRS WAS PERFECT FOR AN APERTIF OR FOR AFTER DINNER LIBATIONS. Pros: A GREAT VARIED MENU, WITH SUPER SEAFOOD AND CRAB DISHES Cons: A LITTLE PRICEY, BUT FOR AN OCCASION, GREAT FOOD ,ATMOSPHERE more

Awesome Service, Food and atmosphere! 8/31/2008

We've traveled around the world and eaten in some truly wonderful restaurants and without a doubt , Blue Pete?s ranks right up there with the best of them! We were met at the door and seated by Paul, the owner, which set the tone for the rest of our evening. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and seemed to genuinely care about our dining experience. We consulted with the wine steward, who was personable and knowledgeable and didn't try to push us into ordering the most expensive bottle on the menu. On our visit, we arrived quite late and were the last to leave but not once did we feel rushed out the door! To begin our wonderful gastronomic experience, we ordered two appetizers: ""Angels on Horseback"" , lightly fried bacon wrapped oysters and crawfish tails served with an exceptional remoulade sauce and ?Steamers? which had mussels, clams and oysters in a spicy, garlicky broth with tomatoes. Both were ""Oh my God..."" good! We also ordered two Caesar salads but after our waiter's recommendation, we chose to share one, which was excellent advice! The salad was huge and came with 3 hearts of romaine, homemade croutons and some of the best dressing we've ever had. For our entree, we split the crab cakes. What a great choice! The kitchen split the order for us with no problem or extra charge. When crab cakes are on the menu, we find it extremely hard to pass them up and in this case we were truly rewarded. All jumbo lump crab meat, these two lightly fried cakes had no filler or back fin meat and were served with a great remoulade sauce. The meals came with sauteed vegetables and wonderful garlic mashed potatoes. For dessert, we shared a slice of Key Lime Pie and to negotiate for the last bite, it was so decadent! Next time (and there will DEFINITELY be a next time) we'll share our meals but we'll each get our own piece of Key Lime pie! Our first of many trips to Blue Pete?s was a wonderful experience and we genuinely look forward to our next visit! Pros: Food, Service and ambience Cons: That I can't eat there every night of the week! more

Ask for Paul...... 8/25/2008

I was very sceptical when the taxi driver recommended it. He said ""best crab cakes around"" and a really cool destination..... well..... it was! The main reason I'm wiritng this is because of the owner who stopped by my table welcomed me to Blue Petes. A really nice guy. I thanked Paul on the way out and told him I would recommend others give it a try. The food was really fresh, well prepared and we had a great time...... can't see how you could go wrong. Pros: really fresh local food in a cool location Cons: make sure you know how to get there more

A hidden tresure 8/12/2008

The restaurant is not in a typical location but that only adds to the charm. The food was wonderful. Starting with the blueberry dressing on the house salad. I wish I could have bought a bottle of it because I could share with with my friends and family at home. I had the Angel Hair Encrusted Salmon all I can say is WOW! I never knew you could do that with pasta, and the sauce was creamy and full of flavor. When I tried my husband's pork chop it tasted like sugar then just melted in your mouth. The basket of bread was fresh and a really nice touch was the muffins, they were a sweat treat. The service was great from the beginning to the end. The new owner came to the table and introduced himself which made us feel taken care of. I later asked when he took over management and I found out that he re-opened in May. Any reviews prior to this date disregard. I am so happy that we found this hidden tresure. I plan on visiting everytime I am in the area. Pros: The food is out of the ordinary. The service was great and new owners were geniune. Cons: The only con is that I can not make it there more often. more

Don't judge this book by it's rustic, rural cover 7/27/2008

My son, 10 year old daughter and myself took my wife on a Sunday evening at 5pm for her birthday. Finding the restaurant would have been slightly difficult without my GPS. It is located out in the middle of nonwhere, and is the only business located out in a remote area with few houses and mostly swamp land and farmland. If first impressions held any weight, you would think of this place as a fried fish, french fries and hushpuppy type of place. Actually that is more of the kind of place we were looking for. Instead, we were greated with linen tablecloths and napkins, and crystal goblets and candles on the table. more

Incredible Country Gourmet at the Beach 7/27/2008

Each year, we take our family to Virginia Beach for vacation. Over the past 10 years, our children have grown to become adults, with married partners . . . and we have tried almost every ""tourist"" restaurant, favorite local spot and upcoming new eatery. Pros: Fresh Food. Local Ambience. Great County Gourmet! Cons: I can't go there everynight. more

Secluded area, exceptional dining experience!!! 6/15/2008

I took my husband to Blue Pete's last night for a special ""First Father's Day Dinner"". I wanted to try something different and something that he had never had before. He is a manager at a restaurant and is pretty critical about service and food. He loves to cook, so I wanted to take him somewhere where he could try something different! I surprised him with this restaurant. When we first pulled up, he had no idea where he was. Blue Pete's is located out in the middle of nowhere, which I love! I made reservations the night before and when we walked in, they knew just who we were and seemed very happy to see us! That made me feel really good. We got a nice table right by the window overlooking the water. The table scape was set up very nicely and cleanly. The hostess introduced the server by name and we were given an opportunity to look over the menu. Once our server, Richard, came over, he was very personable, offering his favorite dishes to us. He was very attentive and made sure we had everything we wanted and needed. The food was wonderful! My husband ate everything off of his plate and even some of mine! We received a very good amount of food for the price and the wine was delicious! We also ordered dessert and we were very pleased with that as well! As we were about to leave, the manager, Paul, came over to our table to see how our dinner was. This was very professional and we appreciated this very much. My husband had a wonderful dinner and we plan to go back very soon! This restaurant may have received bad reviews in the past, but it is now under new management and is definitely worth another visit!!! Pros: Located in the middle of nowhere, great ambiance, quiet Cons: None! Loved it!! more

New Dining Destination 5/22/2008

My name is Paul Veber, and am the new owner of Blue Pete's ( the new number is 453-6478), and would like to invite anyone who has tried Blue Petes before to try it again. We have renovated the building, staff and menu, so that this destination can once again be considered a great place to visit and eat. My wife and I look forward to your next visit. more

Wasting Away at a Cost 2/8/2008

When I grew up in Virginia Beach, there was no better treat than heading to the outskirts for dinner at Blue Petes. By far the best local spot, Blue Petes was incredible with the best and freshest seafood with a festive, friendly, environment that made the restaurant the classic Beach hangout. Pros: indepently owned, off the beaten path location Cons: dirty, poor food, creepy environs more

Greatest crabcakes ever! 1/24/2006

I had a romantic getaway with an old friend last week at Blue Petes. The place is set on the water and lit up to perfection! I am still amazed that this place has been here all my life and I just never knew it. I had the crabcakes which were sensational to say the least. I still cannot find a word to describe just how great they were! Pros: Quiet, Beautiful scenery, affordable more

Wonderful 10/12/2004

We had the most relaxing meal. The food was superb and our server (Lindsey) was quite charming. Even with 20 of us in the group, everything was served quickly, hot and - great! The bartender was very friendly and the specialty Pungo crash? smash? was also quite good. The ambiance is lovely, quite an improvement over the same old chain restaurant. Everyone said hello to us and we had lots of attention. The food was spectacularly good I had the grouper blackened and it was great. I will be going back, and I'm so glad I read the other review, because it helped me make up my mind. Pros: Good Value, High Quality, Unique/impressive Cons: , need a map, good website info more

What a find!! 7/15/2002

Secluded, on the water, great food, and enjoyable southern hospitality. I've dined at many of the better area restaurants and I would emphatically endorse this place. I have never had anything but great food at Blue Pete's, and the Wasabi lemon Tuna is outstanding. The Pungo smash is also a great pre-diner drink. The dress is casual to dressy (after all it is Pungo). They also have a cigar area that is away from the main dining area. It is worth the drive! Pros: Food, Service more
