Great atmosphere and food! Suggested by a friend, we found the food and service exceptional - wish we had more venues like this in downtown. It would definitely help in making downtown Hampton a food lovers destination. While I would love to see more LOCAL seafood restaurants in downtown that serve the "Bounty of the Bay" baked/roaster or broiled instead... More

Very different kind of foods with daily specials. I am stuck on the southern ham sandwich. Most ever thing come with tots. But these tots are on steroids. Large cubes tosses with kosher salt. You must try the tapas menu.

Talk about good pizza!!! Venture has the BEST pizza hands down in the 757 area. I recommend their homemade tots too. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. We have been there about 5 times this year and every meal was great.

What a great find....and in downtown Hampton??? First of all, a fun selection of interesting and unique cocktails (and for $5?? really?? what's not to like about that?) and the food is GREAT. As everyone else has already said, TRY the Tator Tots....you won't be sorry....except, of course, for possibly becoming addicted to those tasty little treats.. If you've ever... More

The title says it all! Cool ambiance, and an open kitchen where you could watch your meal being prepped.

Wandering in downtown Hampton on a Sunday afternoon we stopped into Venture. We've been to other places in the same block and decided to try Venture. It was almost 2PM, end of brunch but the staff served us very good shrimp and grits and a meatball sandwich. Not classic "brunch" but very good. Smallish, industrial chic decor, friendly staff. Bottom... More

We heard that this pace might be good for us as we have to be glutin and cow free plus have great food. They do! And today we are back for lunch as I write this review. Great place!

Can't miss place in Hampton Roads! Will be back soon! Inventive Tapas and really good pizza! New York style but creative combos. Good local beers on tap. Solid option in HR!

The beer was different and all very good - the pizzas were fresh and unique - the fried pork belly was tender and a cool experience. Excellent small location close to our hotel in walking distance.

Pork Belly and Tots are a must from the appetizers ~ tapas ~ tonight I tried the cheese plate, a lovely variety of Port Salut, Goat Cheese and Extra Sharp Cheddar served with various flavor enhancing...
