Customer Reviews


The best drinks in all of Tidewater. Steve Scott is an amazing bartender and always makes me and my group feel super special. The food is great and I like how the specials are always different and that the menu changes seasonally. Definitely a place I always come back to when I’m in town

Late night kitchen, cheap good beers, romantic atmosphere. What else could you want? Went on a date night with my girlfriend and was actually impressed with Norfolk for once. This place is an absolute hidden gem. I will be coming back for sure.
