Good food in a bar setting

ended up eating a late dinner here with our teen boys...had a great crabcake sandwich, a HUGE broccoli spear, salmon, ceasar salad, and a delicious club sandwich...the only downside was the cigarette odor even out on hte side porch.

Contrary to some of the other reviews, our mini-vacay to Virginia Beach included a GREAT dinner here our last night. My husband had the prime rib which was fanTAStic, and well worth the $22. All five in my party were very pleased with the food quality and portions. Crab cake sandwich and burgers were so big, we couldn't finish. As... More

A local told us they had good food and it was a nice place to eat. I beg to differ. When we entered they asked us if it was okay to break up our party or seat us in the smoking section. Everyone in our party smoked except one person so it was fine. They sat all five of us... More

Wife and I wanted pie since the kids already had ice cream. Ordered the peanut butter pie as I remembered it being very good which it was okay this time but we were very disappointed with the size. It took about 4 bites to eat and there was no whipped cream so for $5.00 it was a tiny portion. If... More

Went for an early lunch before we left Virginia Beach. The service was great but the food was not. My husbands burger was undercooked and so was the other table. We still paid but we're not impressed with menu.

Well located off the front,asked if we wanted smoking or not we went for the latter and were shown to a dingy empty annex.The main restaurant is the smoking zone!!!Left without dining,no atmosphere where we were seated.

I guess I thought VA Beach had gotten less seedy in recent years but that's not the case. The Raven was just a bar with a restaurant not a restaurant proper like we thought it would be. Had I been out drinking with adults and we ordered food as an afterthought here it would have been ok but we had... More

I'm sorry that the very nice wait staff has to serve mediocre food in a smoke filled environment. We arrived after the couple we were meeting had been seated. They had gotten a table on the enclosed porch in the "non-smoking area" off of the main eating and bar area. Every time one of the wait staff came through the... More

When we first arrived it was dinner time and asked the hotel front desk the closest restaurant to eat. We decided on the Raven. First entering the establishment we noticed the smell of smoke and was asked for either smoking or non smoking seating. Being from Maryland we were not accustomed to eating in a smoking restaurant however the non... More
