Smokey smell, great steak and service

We stopped in Thursday night on our way home from Williamsburg. Delmonico steaks were great! Grilled cheese and fries for my Grandson were good as well.

This restaurant has been open for over 30 years. It is an informal steakhouse, bar, in the style of a sports bar but nicer. Yes, the decor might be a little dated, but it's so nice, comfortable, clean and the food has never disappointed us. It's the only place I know that's open on Christmas Day - as a matter... More

I was in town for business this place was recommended for a nice dinner so I decided to try it out. Walking in the place looks dated, wood paneling on the walls and the "bar" decor. I sat at the bar ordered a drink and the Prime Rib was the special that night so that's the meal I ordered I... More

Far from upscale in appearance, decor, and ambiance, but if you are looking for good food at fair prices this place deserves a shot. I agree with other reviewers about the quality of the service and the less than bubbly wait staff, but will overlook these two negatives and rate it "very good" on the basis of food quality and...

I am writing this review first because the service here is extremely slow, a 20 minute wait time on orders of drinks, for food takes about 30 minutes. the food isn't the best, I'm talking about steaks, sandwiches, subs, most all times it's cold. we have been coming to the brass bell for a few years now for poker nights...

As a business lunch, the place came recommended. I can't do the same. As we entered through the front door, I don't know where the cigarette smoke smell was coming from - was it years past? Or were people standing outside to smoke because of indoor smoking rules? Either way, not good. The place wasn't crowded because we got there... More

Looking for a late Sunday breakfast / brunch in the Virginia Beach area and having cruised around for far too long decided to give the Brass Bell on Independence a try. The exterior is underwhelming - but don't let that put you off! The place is a sports-bar style set up, TV screens, dark and perhaps to some might feel... More

Being our first time there, we won't be back again. Not only did it take 20 mins to get a drink from our waitress but she was the rudest, unfriendly, I hate my life waitress I ever met. We were a party of 4 and we all agreed not to stay for food and go somewhere else to eat. Even... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I would like to personally apologize for your experience last week. We take pride in great service and friendly staff.

First off, we drove all the way out there because of the positive reviews. we get there and it is not your normal steakhouse looking place. But that is ok because places like this I have gotten some really good food. so we go in and right off they tell us they don't have any high chairs or booster seats(... More

Stopped here on the blind. What a wonderful find. It looks like nothing from the outside. When you walk in, it has a nice neighborhood feeling. Like a place for locals. Had the prime rib special. Over the top in taste and quality. Veggies were nice (not boiled or cooked to death). Drinks were great and service was too. I... More
