Dining at the beach allows you to impress your date by sharing champagne at sunset, writing your names in the sand, and playing a shark like a trumpet. Taste the ocean's beautiful music with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of island-inspired fare and nonalcoholic beverages at Swell at Red Mill Commons in Virginia Beach. This Groupon is not valid for the Sunday brunch buffet or on holidays.
The kitchen staff at Swell brings a breezy mix of coastal fare to the beach-inspired dining hideaway. Nosh locally rolled, Filipino-style egg rolls served with sweet chili sauce ($7.99) or manicure a banzai-pork-barbecue sandwich ($7.99) with demure bites instead of pruning shears. Swell's succulent seafood specials of fried flounder ($11.99) or house-made lump crab cakes ($18.99) lounge languidly with a choice of two sides. Kahuna smashburgers ($7.99–$9.99) create a carnivorous collision of juicy flavors. Kids can entertain themselves with one of 12 entrees ($3.99) before cannonballing themselves into the adjoining arcade.
Swell's tropic-toned style exudes a carefree flair that ebbs into the local portraits and photography lining the walls. Inside, chatter fills the air, kids bumble between foosball and skee-ball, and adults hone their abilities for walking pathways of hot coals in their bare feet.
