Seafood restaurant opens in downtown Norfolk
Waterside District, the new dining and entertainment venue that opened recently on downtown Norfolk’s waterfront, announced the opening Monday of its newest restaurant. The Norfolk location of Stripers Waterside is the Outer Banks-based restaurant group's second location.
The 7,000-square-foot restaurant will have fresh seafood entrees like those at Stripers’ original location, Stripers Bar & Grille in Manteo, N.C. In addition to its regular menu, the Norfolk restaurant will serve a Sunday brunch and have 30 beers on tap.
It joins a lineup of other restaurants and breweries on the Elizabeth River in one of Norfolk’s most recent revitalization projects. After a $40 million overhaul and rebranding of Norfolk’s Waterside Festival Marketplace, Waterside District opened in May.
It’s anchored by The Market, a 30,000-square-foot food hall that includes Starr Hill, Rappahannock Oyster Co., Guy Fieri’s Smokehouse and Blue Moon TapHouse, among others.
