Mahi Mah’s Executive Chef, Chris McCandless, has been on a recent culinary tear slicing and dicing the local competition. Chef Chris claimed top honors by placing first in both the Critic’s and People’s Choice awards at the Knife & Fork culinary competition during the recent International Special Events Society (ISES) with his Carolina Pork Melt, collards and pecan pie fritters. The award winning Carolina Pork Melt will be available on the new Mahi Mah’s menu which is slated to debut in early April.

On April, 11 2015, Chef Chris and Team Mahi Mah’s took to the 24th Street Park to face off against fifteen of Southeastern Virginia’s most prestigious restaurants all claiming to have the best She-Crab soup in the area at the 7th Annual East Coast She Crab Soup Classic. With favorable weather and over 1,200 attendees, the event was an overwhelming success. After much judge deliberation and consideration and fierce competition between the restaurants, Mahi Mah’s took second place in the highly acclaimed Critic’s Choice award.

Congratulations to Chef Chris, keep up the great work!



 "We ate at this restaurant for the first time two nights ago, and again tonight. We are most impressed. The lobster was large and delicious, perfectly cooked, and the prime rib was large, tender, succulent, and superbly flavorful. The seafood sampler, with about four different kinds of seafood, was off the scale excellent. The warm berry cobbler desert with a large portion of vanilla ice cream was impossibly delicious. The quality of the food and its preparation was uniformly outstanding. 

That's just the food. We had different waiters each time and in both cases they were extremely welcoming, hospitable, responsive, resourceful, conscientious, and made our meals immensely enjoyable. 

Physically, the establishment is extremely comfortable and relaxing. 

The manager, Mr. Vic Kintanar, deserves special commendation. He assisted us with some matters and he was immensely helpful and accommodating, above and beyond. This gentleman displayed an absolute mastery of everything a restaurant manager needs to do. I have eaten at thousands of restaurants all over the world and in my opinion, Mr. Kintanar has achieved world class excellence in his profession. 

I most heartily recommend Mahi Mah's on Virginia Beach."

"One of my favorites for sure. That's a lot coming from a local and a foodie. Their happy hour specials are the best on the beach and the seafood is 2nd to none. Sushi and bogo entrees are the best off season deals. Call ahead and check what nights they are going on."

"Sunday fun day, this is the place to go. I love it here in the summer. The bands are good and the sushi creative. Restrooms are clean, and seating plenty. Favorite is the locals' lunchtime meatloaf. To. Die. For. Best collards around and delicious mojitos. This place offers a good taste of Virginia Beach. I believe they were once dubbed the best restaurant in a Ramada Inn, and you will know why once you visit. Also, they offer valet and be sure to tip them well!"
