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

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.
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 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.
Completely disrespectful waitresses! I live across the street so I frequently stop in here for a drink. They brought out my tab and before I could even pull out my wallet, she looked at me and said, " Just so your aware, we don't accept pennies." Completely confused, I asked her what made you think I was going to pay you in pennies? I continued to retrieve my wallet and pulled out cash to pay my tab. The nice person I am, I still made sure to tip her. But I'd never return to this place again. Completely out of line!

We've been to this restaurant/ bar many times in the last 5 years, summer and winter. this time was a little different. Seems like the food has taken a strong swing upward, with really fine dishes , good taste, and well prepared. Congratulations. I hope we can continue this turned through the summer when the crowds return. The fish special (blackened and grilled mahi) was just perfectly done, with great sides!! Good wait staff made it a wonderful meal. thanks.
The food is spectacular, the atmosphere is very welcoming, feels like you're at a friends house, ladies, the bathroom are awesome, very clean place. The entire staff and owners are so nice and are there for your every need. By far one of the best places I've Ever been. The menu also has a wide variety, something for everyone. the kids meals come in buckets that the little ones can keep. nice deck outside. I suggest trying this place out asap!
