As humans slip diamond rings into desserts in hopes of pairing and proliferating, oysters proffer pearls as bribes to keep from being eaten. Today's Groupon won't take the opalescent bait: for $14, you get $30 worth of fresh seafoody fare at Lucky Oyster Seafood Grill on General Booth Boulevard. In 2009, Virginian-Pilot awarded Lucky Oyster three Reader's Choice Best of Virginia Beach gold awards for Best Family/Casual Dining, Best Locals' Hangout, and Best Seafood, as well as a silver award for Virginia Beach's Best Raw Bar.
Lucky Oyster Seafood Grill's extensive menu features environmentally friendly ingredients, including sociable seafood, cordial meats, and hospitable pastas. Get your taste buds' feet wet at the raw bar with an order of 13 freshly shucked Chesapeake bay oysters ($10.79), a steamed shrimp 'n’ vegetable platter with hollandaise and cocktail sauce ($16.99), or a pound of steamed snow crab legs in drawn butter (market price). Continue to sweep yourself off your own sea legs with a fresh seafood cobb salad full of blackened scallops, fresh crab meat, steamed shrimp, applewood-smoked bacon, mixed cheeses, tomato, cucumber, and avocado ($12.99), or savor the lightly fried mini crab cakes dressed in rémoulade sauce ($9.99). Lucky Oyster's dinner delights include decadent crab-stuffed flounder ($20.99), tilapia swimming in lobster scampi sauce ($21.99), NY strip steak ($19.99), and chicken parmesan served over linguini ($14.99). The list of fine fare continues with tacos, sandwiches, commas, and more, sure to satisfy even the fussiest foodsperson.
Stepping into Lucky Oyster Seafood Grill is like stepping onto a steady ship that has just dropped anchor in a beachy, ship-like restaurant. The walls are fully clad with marine memorabilia, signage, and artifacts alongside mounted TVs begging the karaoke debut (or redux) of your dreams. Stop by Lucky Oyster on a Friday or Saturday night (as well as Thursday nights during June, July, and August) to catch some live music, or check the full monthly calendar to learn about additional fun events.

- The interior of Lucky Oyster is decorated with a nautical seashore theme--with fish hung from the rafters on wire, nets strung here and there, and so on. What I saw of it seemed very clean. Service was friendly, quick, and efficient. – Lily933, Urbanspoon
- The Lucky Oyster makes the best crab cakes in Hampton Roads. Quite possibly the best I've ever had in my life. – Jim Gitman, Urbanspoon
- It has a fun and welcoming atmosphere...I had the shrimp and clam strips. Both were very good and the portions were perfect. They have sweet potato fries that are outstanding. – VacationSleuth, TripAdvisor
