What You'll Get
With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of crab cakes, oysters, and more at The Lucky Star at The Westin in Virginia Beach.
The Lucky Star serves a robust selection of aesthetically crafted seafood by taking tried-and-true entrees and applying a contemporary twist. After scanning the restaurant's dinner menu, crustacean cravers may be drawn to Lucky Star's signature crab cakes ($29), a New York Times favorite. The crab's delicate, moist meat will melt in mouths, accompanied by hints of lemon aioli and a watermelon-habanero relish. Prepare for the blackened scallops and goat-cheese ravioli ($28) by snacking on a light appetizer, such as the firecracker lobster ($9), with breaded bites that sleep soundly on a mattress of Asian slaw. Lunchtimers have several soup and salad options, including the Mediterranean-style clam chowder ($5.50 for a cup), in which fresh clams, celery, and hickory-smoked bacon throw a pool party in a clam broth. Otherwise, carnivores can tear into the hormone-free and steroid-free bison burger, served with french fries and a non-alcoholic beverage for $10.
Cork-poppers will find a suitable bottle—The Lucky Star's wine list is topped with Washington State's 14 Hands cabernet sauvignon and Red Diamond merlot—to pair with a meal that Lucky Star's executive chef ensures is packed with as many locally grown ingredients and flavors as possible. Casual diners can saddle up at the classy, wood-lined bar, whereas lovebirds celebrating the anniversary of The Andy Griffith Show going off the air can enjoy the elegantly simple dining room. Tastefully consume the bounty of the sea in a modern setting with today's Groupon to The Lucky Star at the Westin.

- His sublime crab cakes, rich with lumps of the dewy, ivory meat, are gently sautéed and then quickly gilded under a broiler. Doing them justice are garnishes of lemon aioli sauce and a needling hot salsa of habañeros, watermelon and papaya along with marinated slivers of icy jicama. – Mimi Sheraton, New York Times
- The food at the Lucky Star is exceptional! Restaurants of this caliber are few and far between. It is convenient and reasonably priced. And the presentation and orginality [sic] of recipes are outstanding. – A Yahoo! Contributor, 01/13/08
- My husband and I are new to the area (but are total foodies- having dined in excellent restaurants all over the world)... we found Lucky Star by chance and LOVED it. – zagnutmom, Citysearch
