Cody Shumway - HEAD CHEF
As the Executive Chef of Surf Club Ocean Grill (or Wyndham VB, which ever) it has been my pleasure to serve our local North Enders and our many traveling guests. I strive to provide a dining experience that is both unique and memorable, which is made quite easy with our breath taking ocean views and always lively restaurant. I find my inspiration from other local Chefs, and more importantly by listening to my guests.
When not creating culinary treats I enjoy spending my time with my dog Zoey, Going to the beach, kayaking, hiking and checking out the local scene for trendy new foods and our amazing live music venues.

Grant Meyers has worked at the Oceanfront for 15 years and the last 4 years here at Surf Club. I really enjoy being centered in the middle of the NorthEnd of Virginia Beach.
