More Virginia Beach

I have to mention a few of the places we went while staying at Virginia Beach.

Murphy's Grand Irish Pub. Unfortunately, I didn't have anything off of their menu that would be considered Irish. The Irish Stew or the Meat and Potato Pie or Corned Beef and Cabbage were what I was originally trying to decide upon while viewing the menu, but I went out on a whim and decided to try the crab cakes. They were GREAT. But next time, I definitely want to try the Irish Stew or the Corned Beef.

The next day for a late lunch we went to Ribley's which surprisingly enough specializes in ribs and wings. They hooked us during the morning where in between pan handlers and vacation salesmen we were offered a free sample wing. It was good. REAL good. Almost Hooters good. So, back we went. The ribs were good too.

The next day found us nearly on our way home and pulling into Captain George's parking lot. Mmm. Seafood. Mmm. Seafood buffet. Everything you could imagine was in this buffet. Here's what I had:

  • Blackened Tuna

  • Flounder, broiled

  • Salmon, also broiled

  • Green beans, fresh, steamed. I know, a waste of valuable stomach real estate

  • Stuffed mushrooms

  • Fried softshell crab (I didn't really like it)

  • Sauteed mahogany clam (in garlic and butter or whatnot)

  • Crawfish (spicy, cajun)

  • Fried shrimp

  • Fried scallops

  • Fried pollock

  • Shrimp in the same kind of spice that the crawfish were in

  • Steamed mussels

  • Some big steamed clams, which I can only assume were Quahogs, but I don't know for sure

  • Blue crab

  • Alaskan Snow crab legs

I was full. And it was good.
