PRIME 103 Steakhouse
I have been here multiple times since they have opened. Went about 3 weeks after they opened for the first time and they continue to impress me more and more. First atmosphere is perfect, it is a beautiful restaurant at a great location. It has that upscale look but they make you feel casual and comfortable. Its not your typical white table cloth stuffy steakhouse. Yes the food (great prices for what they serve) is upscale and plated beautiful, not to mention that is of course amazing and one of the best meals iv had in many of places around this country and yes i do travel a lot. The service has always been perfect and they are very good with remembering who we are. Owner/Chef is an amazing young man, he always tires to sneak out of the kitchen to make his rounds to the customers and always thank them for coming out and making sure everything is alright. Yes at times when we watch them cook ( they have a beautiful open kitchen that kind of gives you a show while you wait for your food) and he is busy he will atleast try and acknowledge as many customers as possible with a simple wave. You see a lot of people walk up to the kitchen window, and usually compliment him and his chefs on a amazing meal. Trust me i know, iv been one of them. His staff is very well trained, Adam who i believe serves and is front of the house manager, has always been helpful with us. Very Polite young man and always eager to sell us on one of the specials for the night. Overall, i hope this place can become a staple in Virginia Beach, I would hate to see this place go, and by the product and service they give you i do not believe that will be happening

Yard House
Want to know where to go in VB to gather friends and enjoy a great evening over delicious food? Look no further. Yard House is the place to be! My husband’s work loves this place for happy hour. I love it for any gathering from family celebrations to friends having a night out. Clean, chic, and spacious, the large open seating surrounding a gorgeous bar makes for a great social evening. Yet this isn’t a bar dive-it’s upscale and casual. You’ll be able to enjoy delicious food and a variety of craft ales and lagers. The food is well-prepared, tastes extremely fresh, and provides decent sized portions. What is even better are the unique offerings of “Snacks” (for those who want to nibble, “just taste”, or eat smaller portions), “Street Tacos”, an entire menu selection of Gardein based dishes/entrees (for those who prefer alternatives to meat and fish), and gluten sensitive recommendations/alternatives. Some of the amazing eats we’ve had include the ahi poke bowl, New York steak sandwich with sweet potato fries, and grilled Korean beef short rib street tacos. But it doesn’t stop there. Dessert is a must! Don’t leave without tasting the homemade fresh baked brownie with ice cream (it is really decadent—the best brownie I’ve ever had!), or any of the “minis”! The mini lemon soufflé, chocolate soufflé, and peach cobbler is divine!

11th Street Taphouse & Grille
The advertised Build Your Own Bloody Marys drew us in to the 11th Street Taphouse. For only $3.50 on Saturdays and Sundays before 3pm you can get a nice sized glass of vodka or gin and begin your creation. A selection of fresh garnishes are on hand including large olives, bacon, blue and cheddar cheese bits, peppers, garlic, celery, etc. I made mine with the delicious Zing Zang mix and also added fresh horseradish and hot sauce. Yummy! We also shared a few appetizers; crab brochettes and stuffed mushrooms were delicious, but the best of all was the Tiki Tuna. So fresh and tender and served with a nice seaweed salad. The waiter was wonderful, attentive and friendly as was the day manager. Each day offers different specials including Craft Beer Night, Ladies Night and $10 Entrees. It's location right on the beach gives you a great view as well as many tvs for your favorite sports events. The staff quickly accommodated our request for a channel change to our favorite team. On our next visit to Virginia Beach, we will be sure to stop in again for the Bloody Mary Bar and perhaps try out some of their entrees. A very nice friendly place which would also be good for families.

Lubo Wine Tasting Room
My husband and I stopped by here on a whim as we were in the area and wanted to enjoy some quiet time before attending a party. It had come highly recommended from a coworker so we decided to check it out. Lubo's is not a huge restaurant, but an intimate setting where you can enjoy some quiet conversation with friends. I wouldn't say this is a place to bring your kids (just because of the sophistication of the menu), but I noticed the menu did offer some family friendly evenings! The server was very helpful in recommending good red wines for us to have and they were spot on! To accompany our wine, we had the baked prosciutto and chevre appetizer which was delcious! The roasted garlic was sweet and savory. We also are glad the server recommended their dessert special for the day: Reese's cup bread pudding a la mode! That was one of the best desserts I had EVER tasted! They said the chef doesn't make it regularly, so we needed to try it...and I'm so glad we did! Little hidden surprises of good food makes this place worth stopping by.

Mermaids
There are two main reasons why I love this club so so much. Number one is the feeling while in the club...whether ate the VIP or not; it's just warm and it imbues some comfy. This makes one really get loose and dive into that moment of fun; and of course that's what clubbing is about, right? The other thing is the attention that the employees give the customers. Anything to do with an order or commotion is attended to instantly, making the customers very safe and comfortable. Forget about those clubs that tell you about VIP yet there isn't really anything special. My evening at the Mermaids Gentlemen's Club VIP provided me with the real meaning and feeling of VIP. The lightning alone plus the seats are so definitive. Drinks? Haha, order whatever you want and it will be served in a very special way by properly groomed waiters and waitresses. Sit back, relax, let loose, and have real fun. I love their women..literally!!

No Frill Bar & Grill
I went here because I was craving fish and chips, the other reviews were up and down so I figured I'd give it a try. The fish that they fry is flounder. It was VERY heavy for fish and chips. They gave me a large portion, which was nice but I couldn't finish it; which is rare for me to not finish my fish and chips. The batter was really light and thin, not that flavorful. Overall it was just ok, I wouldn't order it again. My husband had the Cajun Grilled Catfish - Grilled sourdough, lettuce, tomato, Parmesan pepper dressing. He also thought it was ok, not flavorful either. The sandwich needed the dressing. The service was great. Our server was very friendly, patient and helpful. I would come back here to try their buffalo fried shrimp, we saw many people ordering it. They gave large portions and it looked delicious. There is ample parking here in their lot. This restaurant is family friendly with a diner experience.

I used to tell my friends about this club because of their music, food and other niceties, but most of them just dismissed me saying that I’m just a strip club fanatic; that I only go to watch the women do their thing. If I do my counting right, 3 quarters of them are now regulars, let alone the ones who visit occasionally. The most striking thing about this club is the interior design and the lighting. It adds some level of beauty to the dancers as they go about their business. Plus the different cuisines and drink specials just sum it all up. Because of their good job, I’ve become their marketer off the payroll.

PRIME 103 Steakhouse
I really wanted to like this place. I'm not a foodie, or a snob. Good things to like here, but I really wanted a good steak and I didn't get it. Martini was decent, fries were crisp and tasty, loaded baked potato was fair, service was friendly and acceptably attentive. My wife's cowboy burger was great. My Delmonico was disappointing at best. Ordered Medium-Rare, received Medium-Well. Looked like a NY Strip without benefit of insulating, moisturizing fat. Tough, dry, lousy piece of beef, and this is supposed to be a Steakhouse. I really wanted to like this place, but I won't be back.

Mermaids
With all due respect to other so called clubs around Virginia Beach, Mermaids Gentlemen’s Club makes them look like some local pubs. They have great sound so music is good to the ears. They have activities almost on a daily basis, giving customers a reason to have a unique experience every time they visit the club. While some clubs are just known for great music and dance floors, Mermaids Gentlemen’s Club also provides some cuisines that you don’t get anywhere around. The club is all round, meaning you get everything you need to give you a fabulous evening out.

I went to Mermaid's for a bachelor party and was so impressed by the service that I just had to write this review. First of all, the staff was so attentive and constantly making sure we were good with everything we needed, the women went above and beyond with their dancing and were even great and fun to talk to, bottle service was on point and the food was nothing short of awesome. I was kind of worried at first about having the bachelor party there because I thought it was too small but I'm so glad we did! I will come here again for sure.

Just a moment...
