Stopped for lunch. Waitress was very good about accommodating out large party and the service was great. Kudos to Casey for such excellent service. Most of us got sandwiches or burgers which were all delicious. Definitely go back again!

Don't let the outside looks of the restaurant fool you. The food is very good, especially the blackened tuna sandwich! One thing and this is our bad.......we should have asked. If you order a side dish that may not be on the menu,ask the price and portion. A side of broccoli is more than enough for 2+ people and it... More

I always make a trip to this restaurant when I am visiting the area. The staff is always pleasant an the food is great. An the outdoor seating area up front is pet friendly as they let our dog come in to sit with us since he is a well-behaved pet.

We came on a very hot day, and the only way to get a booth inside was to sit in the smoking section. The smoking wasn't terrible, but the booth was very narrow and hard with no cushion. It was also extremely dark inside despite the sun shining all day. Also, I felt like I stepped 30 years back with... More

Had a great burger after reading reviews we decided to have lunch here on a raining day at Virginia Beach. Our server Carlos w a s very attentive and rushed at the end of our meal so that we could beat the rain back to our hotel. Thanks for a huge burger I will have dinner tonight also.

We stopped in on our Labor Day weekend. They had $3.00 Screwdrivers and bloodymarys. They were served in a small glass, for the price not bad. I had a burger and it tasted pretty good had lots of flavor. They also had very cold draft beer. Yum! They do have a smoking and non smoking section not that it mattered... More

Labor Day weekend and everywhere was packed for dinner. Tried the Raven for prime rib...price was good (less than $20) for a nice sized piece of meat. Not as tender or tasty as I expected from a rare prime rib. May need to go back for a Burger next time.
