If you want more casual food, I’ve always enjoyed Chick’s Oyster Bar in the Cape Henry section (north of the beach). Excellent burgers and sandwiches. I’m not a seafood fan either, but their she-crab soup is great. Everything’s on one level–I have a blind sister-in-law who has a guide dog, and she’s never had any trouble manuevering in Chick’s.
I also second Isle of Capri. A little pricey, but the food is great and the view wonderful. Pasquale, the owner, is very accommodating.
Thanks for your suggestions thus far.
I am listening and appreciating.
In the Hilltop area of VB you can find Indian food at "Nawab" and an excellent bistro "Baker’s Crust". You hotel staff should be able to direct you. Both are very accessable.
I love VA Beach, and hope you and your Mom have a great time.
A bit pricey, but surely worth it is Isle of Capri. It’s located in Holiday Inn (but independent) around 36 or 3700 block of Atlantic. Ask for a window table. It’s about 5 floors up right over the water. Handicapped should be no problem with elevator and accessible entrance. Since she’s not a fish lover, try the veal. It is excellent.
More pocketbook friendly is Beach Pub on Laskin Rd. On Wednesday (I think, call to be sure) they have a prime rib special that is very good. It also is handicapped accessible, and has some of the most helpful staff you’ll ever need.
Good luck and have fun!
Since you’ll probably be arriving by car,you’ll have the wheelchair if needed.She moves at a much slower pace than you these days.Just put your arm around her and show her the Atlantic,and a great time!Sorry, no ideas for VA Beach,i’m an SC guy!Have fun and enjoy your time together!
A personal thought from the Sundancer is:
A brand new Residence Inn just opened up on the beach. It has only been open for about a month. It is beautiful. All the rooms have balconies overlooking the beautifully groomed beach and the boardwalk is super. Just one block down the street is a Hilton that has a great affordable restaurant right on the beach and it is pretty and the crab cakes and flounder is super.
you may be familiar with the Residence Inn my Marriott but they have a free breakfast and a dinner. It may not be what you want but the breakfast is very good. Dinner is OK but I always went next door to the Hilton.
The view is super and if you decide to stay there, request a high floor. View is much better.

I am taking my 83yr old mother to Va. Beach at the end
of February. She uses a cane, a walker, or wheel-chair
depending on how she is feeling.
Any suggestions of handicap-friendly restuarants in Va.
Beach? She is a mountain lady and not really into seafood.
Perhaps this is a bad idea, but she wants to see the
ocean. She’s only been to the ocean 2 times in her life, so
I want this to be fun, special, and as easy on her as possible.
Thanks for any suggestions.
