She Crab Soup

The Official Soup of Virginia Beach

She Crab Soup has officially been named the soup of Virginia Beach! The East Coast She Crab Soup Classic was held this past Saturday, April 11, 2015 at the 24th Street Park. This ticketed event was completely sold out and our very own restaurant, Tradewinds, was a proud participant!

Although, Tradewinds She Crab Soup wasn’t a finalist this year we were proud to participate in this city event with many other esteemed local seafood restaurants.

Due to the success this event each year has and the increase in tourism for it, the City of Virginia Beach Mayor William D. Sessoms, Jr. drafted a proclamation naming She Crab Soup the official soup of Virginia Beach.

The proclamation can be seen proudly hanging in our Tradewinds Restaurant. Want to give our She Crab Soup a try? Stop in for lunch or for our infamous Sunday Brunch!
