A high-protein diet can help build muscle, which comes in handy for fighting off a shark that is also on a high-protein diet. Take a bite out of the circle of life with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of seafood and steak at Anchor Inn in Virginia Beach.
Anchor Inn nourishes Virginia Beach’s land-dwelling populace with gustatory gold mined from the depths of nearby seas⎯previewed on its surf ‘n’ turf–laden menu. Fried seafood, such as crab cake and shrimp ($18) and oysters wrapped in bacon ($17) sate seafaring cravings more effectively than making out with a pucker fish, and tender chicken lounges atop a mattress of tubular pasta, roasted red peppers, wine, and garlic in the chicken penne pasta ($15). A gluten-free menu pushes pushy wheat proteins out of the limelight to make way for prime rib with baked-potato sidekicks ($20) and broiled tuna ($18) swimming in a bath of white wine, and a kids’ menu ($5–$9) hushes the high-pitched squeals of pint-size bellies.
A wine menu of globally grown grape juices ($5–$8/glass) beckons diners to linger on the outdoor patio or in the casual eatery to debate the most flattering wine-stain shapes. Homemade desserts of key-lime pie and chocolate Kahlua cake ($5 each) sweetly preside over the meal’s closing ceremonies.
Though Anchor Inn sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Anchor Inn at the Courthouse
Inside a picturesque structure flanked by a fountain, Anchor Inn's chefs broil, fry, and simmer cuisine infused with the flavors of the nearby ocean. Diners can share steamed shrimp by the pound or bacon-wrapped scallops, or opt for plates of crab cakes or new york strip steaks with fried shrimp. At the bar, servers mix fruity martinis and frozen daiquiris to complement dinners.
