We also have pre-made mermaids and dolphins that make great farewell gifts, gifts for visiting relatives or a memento of your time in Hampton Roads, plus a large selection of mermaid, dolphin and nautical gift items.

Reservations are not required for groups of less than eight. However we have limited seating and are often very busy; therefore regardless of your party size (even one or two people), it is highly recommended to make a reservation, especially on the weekends.
