The Beach Pub opened in 1978 at 404 Laskin Road in Virginia Beach. It was opened by Buddy Barco and Harry Smithson. The restaurant became a popular spot with many locals and served breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

It has always been a family affair, Harry’s wife and children all worked at the Pub, as did Buddy’s two daughters. In 1983, the Beach Pub moved to it’s present location, 1001 Laskin Road.

In 1996, Harry wanted to leave the pub to spend more time with his family. Buddy’s daughters, along with their husbands, bought Harry’s half of the Pub.

It is still the family affair as Buddy’s grandchildren now contribute to the work force! As for Harry, he is still in almost everyday, enjoying the Pub now as a customer, a very good customer!
