“Part of a great family of restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I was happy to meet friends for dinner here on a Sunday evening. Our server handled our party of five with ease and professionalism. I am a fan of both Crackers and Empire, so I knew I would love Six. We shared several dishes and then ordered our own small plates. There is something for everyone on their extensive cocktail and martini lists. Cute setting near Buckroe Beach.

“Will return!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here based on TA reviews and was not disappointed. Not as small as expected, dimly lit space, with plenty of room at the bar at 5pm. Folks started to roll in about 6pm. Great eats: Mac and cheese balls w/ bacon, delicious very lightly fried crab cakes, scallops were divine, and you must get the red sangria. We will return if ever in Hampton.

“Our new Local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Love the food, cool atmosphere, hilarious cocktail menu (it's a long one), beers, and yes, the small plates format. The entire staff is warm and witty and engaging. The blackboard specials change daily. We are good for 1-2 visits a week. Filet mignon a constant winner, as are the scallops, and lamb chops. Cool place.

“Good food & great drinks while in Hampton.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This is the place to go while in Hampton and you want great food, but in smaller portions. This is a gem of a spot located in the Phoebus section of Hampton. Wonderful young chiefs appling their skills in the culinary department. Pricing is good considering the quality of the food which enables you to try many of the specials while there. The cocktails are the best on this side of the water along with a good selection of beers and wines. Plan on staying for a while just because it is that good. Open late until about 1:30 a.m.

“In a Word: WONDERFUL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

My dining companion and I had to circle the block twice to locate tiny "Six," but it was well worth the effort. It was an off night, a Thursday, so we had the place nearly to ourselves. While the heat of the evening was a bit of a trial, the food and cocktails more than made up for it as they were absolutely marvelous! We each had one cold and one hot "plate." Do not miss the daily mac & cheese special (that day, a salmon and asparagus pairing!) Dessert selections were limited, but the homemade strawberry shortcake was the icing on a perfectly executed meal. Do NOT miss this dining experience. I will look forward to visiting Hampton again just to dine here!
