The food was standard diner fare but I suppose it is the charm of the small and personal diner experience that makes people like this place. I would go back but it should only get three stars because the food is not unique and because of that can really only be average. Most restaurants can make eggs and bacon well.

Classic diner breakfast done really well. Great sunrise view at the beach. Excellent service and great job keeping up with everything during the flood of diners due to the Shamrock Half Marathon this morning.

The Belvedere is a great place for breakfast and lunch. I had a bowl of yummy sausage and broccoli soup, a little on the spicy side, but that's the way I like it and a basket of fried onion rings. The staff was friendly and the place, including the restrooms was exceptionally clean. The only negative is that the Belvedere... More

The best kept secret on the beach is this place! Great food and Great service. My breakfast was Eggs, Bacon, Pancakes, & Coffee for $7.25. It is located at the Belvedere , next door to the Sheraton. One of the best overall values on the Beach, I will be coming back!

We had lunch here yesterday and enjoyed this cozy diner. Simple but good food and great service. It is small and you have to wait a few minutes but it is a genuinely unassuming and authentic. We'll. be back-good food and service at a fair price. Thanks.

Fries and chicken-decent meal. Right downstairs so it's very convenient if you're not looking to walk far!

Wonderful for visiting foreigners wanting the true, unhealthy American breakfast experience. We loved it and were there for both mornings of our stay in Virginia Beach. Sure the coffee isn't great but tell me where it is with breakfast in the USA. Good people working there and sitting at the counter watching all the breakfast orders being prepared was just... More

Based on the average rating, I entered with high expectations and left disappointed. Food was nothing special and prices were not great. My wife's cheese omelet made it difficult to find the cheese and my bacon and egg sandwhich was greasy and hard to hold.

The welcome is cool at best, the coffee is bad at best and the service just isn't the best. You can't make any substitutions but they're happy to tack sides on your order. They at least did me the courtesy of asking how I liked my steak cook before I was served a well done steak. The view is great... More
