Don't go late at night

WAS one of my favorite BBQ places. Went in about 8 pm.. service was really good. Brittney was the best thing about the place. Food tasted and looked old. Onion rings were cold and oily. They replaced them with fresh ones. Which further let me know that the ones I was originally served were old. I... read more

Went to Belmont House of Smoke while visiting kids and grandkids in the area, who go regularly. Wednesday night has a special on "wings", so there was a bit of a wait, but well worth it. Casual, happy atmosphere situated in an old restored building in Norfolk, and the food was delicious... ribs, wings, poppers, craft beer on tap. A... More

I had never been to Belmont House of Smoke before, even though I frequent Norfolk for eating out. I had been looking forward to trying some barbecue with my friends as we celebrated one of their birthdays. (We had a party of 7) I walked in ready to have a fantastic time, but from the get-go our evening went in... More

A loaded potato as an entree? Yes. Yes. Yes. It came with mouth-watering sour cream and chives with beef brisket. Wow. Drizzled with BBQ sauce, it looked like a fancy desert instead of an entree. It was delicious. Now it's time to enjoy some music.

The flavor of the BBQ was ok but nothing special. The bun seamed soaked or brushed in oil and was greasy. The bread was good just too much butter? vegetable oil? The meat was not hot. That surprised me. The waitress was nice but the food took a while for just a couple of BBQ sandwiches.

Very disappointing. The beer was flat and they were confused for a while before they offered another. The wings were pretty average to say the least, though the sauces were good. However, the main courses were brought too early and when we were apologized to and told that they'd cook us fresh ones, they actually left our plates on the... More

My co-workers and I visited the Belmont last night and right away we were greeted by a young waitress who took our drink orders and brought us menus. Her knowledge of the menu was impressive, and she was patient and polite with our entire table while we all asked questions (there were 10 of us). The food was decent. Our... More
