About Us

Hot Tuna. We are not fine dining, we are not casual dining, we are somewhere in between. Our menu could be described as seasonal new American. The owners grew up right here in Va Beach, and they wanted to take neighborhood dining to a new level. Exceptional locally sourced food, hand made creative cocktails, and exemplary service, but without the pretense. The menu is constantly evolving much like the surrounding neighborhood.

Hot Tuna is a member of the farm to fork movement; therefore our food features what is fresh, in season and local. Eastern shore seafood and produce from local farms are staples; and the menu runs the gamut from the freshest Ahi Tuna, to the famous Calarnari to a gourmet Gouda Cheeseburger.

Our bartenders are as adventurous as our chefs, creating award winning hand muddled mojitos, homemade sangria & original skinny girl cocktails.

Unlike others, Hot Tuna is on of the few restaurants in the country that can .offer you a fantastic dining experience, as well as provide you with a lively bar scene with local musicians & DJ’s.

Stop by and see why we have been in business for over twenty years and why Southern Living Magazine, and The Washington Post say that Hot Tuna is a must see when visiting the coast of Virginia.
