Not what it used to be.

My wife and I have been going to 905 for about the last five years and it has steadily declined in service and quality of food. Prices are up and portions are down and to make things worse there is generally only one waitress for the entire restaurant. Last night's meal, Greek Night, was... read more

A friend, who lives in the neighorhood suggested that we meet here for breakfast and we loved it. I had an omelet with vegetables and cheese which was creamy with fresh vegetables. The home fries were crisp. Another person had Eggs Benedict with crab meat. It wad splendid. Another had French toast made with pumpkn bread. That was divine! Coffee... More

I give the place 5 stars for the service. Although the food is consistently very good - the friendly personal service is why I keep going back. Try Greek Night on Tuesday or Thursday. Brunch on Sunday is great as well - the portions are large and your coffee cup will never be empty. Neat little place just 5 minutes... More

This vegetarian had to work a bit to find a meal, but I managed. For you meat and fish eaters, you will have no trouble finding a dish that's hearty and beyond filling. You're going to take food home foe later. Try the Bloody Mary- good and spicy!

My wife and I were on vacation and staying at the local Best Western and wanted a local place to have dinner and the 905 Cafe was the perfect place. The food was plentiful, extremely tasty, local craft beer available and the service was great. If we ever get back to Norfolk, we will certainly stop at the 905 for... More

My wife and I had breakfast at 905 Grill in Norfolk. The staff were all nice, but we probably won't be going back. One of the day's specials was a blueberry bread french toast which came with two eggs and sausage or bacon. Although the food was very good, I was disappointed in the serving size for the price ($12.99,... More

Not a fancy place by any stretch of the imagination but the food is fabulous!! Fresh home made meals. Lots of new specials to try every night. Every time I am in the Hampton Roads/Virginia Beach area, I try to go eat here.

Wouldn't have found this place while on a business trip without trip advisor, but had a great local beer from smartmouth brewing co and some decent tuna tacos with black beans and rice. Food was a little bland but high in quantity and quality was good. Will definitely try this place again before leaving and have already recommended it to... More

This is a gem here along the bay in Norfolk. It's very casual with friendly, attentive service and local owners. There are always creative blackboard specials. The last time we dined here, we sat outside on the patio and had the East Beach Lemonade cocktail and the 905 Rum Punch. We tried the Fried Shrimp entree, which are handmade, not... More
