GOOD FOOD - GOOD VALUE

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 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

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

Get a great steak and a side for lunch for around $10. I get a side of mushrooms always! It's a bar with a great lunch menu. It was voted best bar steak in by the Virginia Pilot. Great lunch specials. Go early!

I visited the restaurant with a colleague for a late dinner. The food was very good. We had both gotten the Delmonico steak. My colleague was familiar with the restaurant and had actually called in our order before we got there so that it would be ready when we got there. It is a local hangout atmosphere with a table...

While visiting Va Beach from Florida, I had one of the best prime rib dinners EVER, and the price was right! I ordered my prime rib med. rare, with a baked potato, WARM bread, a house salad and corn. My order was filled to perfection and served by an outstanding waitress named Marija. The food was fresh, hot and even... More
