We visited this small place on a weekday at around 9am. I think there were 3 other customers in the place. Staff was very friendly. Was a bit surprised the way it was set up that the opposite booth seats don't have a view of the water so if you have 2 people and want a view you'll have to... More

I was told to come here because the food was amazing. It was very crowded since it's such a small place. We sat at the counter and watched the cooks. They were quick. The breakfast was amazing. The pancakes were excellent and the eggs and grits and virginia ham were also excellent. Worth the trip.

We always eat at least once at the Belvedere while we are in Virginia Beach. This time was no exception. The menu is simple and basic and the service is efficient. There is quite often a wait as there are only 27 seats but it moves pretty quickly. The prices are very reasonable for a place on the beach.

The food was good, just the usual breakfast. It was so tiny. There was a half hour wait and not really worth the long wait. Kudos to the staff, they work in difficult conditions.

Thanks for the shout out to our staff. They do their best to make your wait worth it. The great view is just your appetizer. The good food is the payoff. Hope to see you again when you are in town. More

I will never eat there again. I live in Virginia Beach. I went there on a regular basis. This morning I waited the customary 15 to 30 minutes in the line. When a table opened up, they gave it to two people behind me who had gotten there fifteen minutes after I did. I said, "Wait. How is it they... More

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. In small restaurants, 27 seats in our case, it's not unusual to reserve booths for two or more people. Imagine a family of four waiting in line while an individual takes up four seats. It's a dilemma. When I eat alone I sit at the counter and so does my wife. That's... More

Stopped for a quick breakfast on a Sunday morning. Fresh corned beef, delicious eggs, and excellent toast for me. My wife had the eye opener as a sandwich which was fantastic. We will visit this fine establishment when we return to Virginia Beach in November.

This is a very small place that can only seat about 8 at the bar and another 20 in booths. Fortunately for us, it was off season and late morning, so we were able to just walk in and select our seat with a view of the Atlantic. It must get very busy in the 7-9 AM time frame, especially... More

Very small restaurant in business for over 30 years. Just sandwiches and some breakfast items. Yum! Get the "Eye Opener" if you want to experience a very tasty and unique sandwich. Very limited seating, so get there before noon or after 1:00 pm.
