We both ordered salads - mine was a strawberry, goat cheese, almonds, and chicken salad, and my husband had a spinach salad with chicken. Both... read more

The salads will wow you. The soups are terrific. Steaks! Burgers! Wow French fries. Local beers. Lively bar of locals with a quaint dining room where you can feel comfortable all dolled up or a bit relaxed in jeans.

Unfortunately, we only had time to stop in here pre- and post- show for a beverage, (it's right around the corner from the Infinity theater), so we only spent time at the bar, but the staff was friendly, the atmosphere was comfortable and we wished we had more time in Norfolk so that we could try the restaurant.

Do not let the name fool you. Great food and good prices. They had a really good variety of food and many items that you might not find at other establishments.

Four of us went to a show at Infinity Hall recently and one in our group had the foresight to get a reservation. We watched numerous couples come in looking for a table only to be turned away because of lack of reservations. We were served three excellent meals and one that was returned to the kitchen. One person had... More

The food and service are good. We have enjoyed Tuesday night Trivia a couple of times now. It's a casual, friendly atmosphere.
