The Big Pink is one of the best listening rooms in the area. Give it a go for Thursday Open Mic night. I seen some pretty magical stuff happen on occasion! They have other events and shows too....check it out!

Not sure what they are trying to be? It definitely isn't a good dining experience. While the owners are obviously moving towards a live music "hang out" for evenings, why stay open for breakfast and lunch that is sorely lacking choice and appeal. The chicken...salad was good but the menu is so bland and so is presentation (white sandwich bread) that it's a miss. Unless they revamp...don't bother eating here!More

Ribs are too tough to eat. Pulled pork watery and cold. I did have pretty good salmon here once, but it's not on their regular menu. Mac and cheese is fairly good. We go for the music. Keep getting sucked into ordering food. We should...know better.More

The "Big Pink" has re-opened and is now the Victorian Station Tea Room & Southern Smokehouse. Great coffee and teas along with breakfast and lunch items, but the Smokehouse dinners are what takes it to the next level. Pulled Pork, Chicken Wings, Turkey Legs, Spareribs,...Fish and so much more. A great local live music venue for songwriters and musicians to play for a intimate audience. So forget about the previous reviews and find out for yourself, we did.More

Very nice. Food and service was great and had a great view of the harbor while we ate. Prices were very reasonable. Would definitely go again.

Hit there for local music and a beer. Menu is limited to sandwiches, burgers etc... but the atmosphere is pleasant and fun.

I bought a groupon for high tea and took grown nieces there. We had a great experience. I went back for lunch and later a music event. Lovely, friendly, place to go. Out of the ordinary antiques.

I've been coming here for years and have yet to have a satisfactory meal. One time I ordered only one of a pair of items (I didn't want the barbeque and chicken, only the chicken) and they still charged me the full price of the...entire entrée - despite the fact that I didn't eat it. When the server asked if I liked it and I told her it wasn't good, she asked if I wanted a box. Um, no thanks. My friend even had tea and it was not satisfactory. She said she could've had better at home. They do have Moscato wine, so I'm not going to die of thirst, so long as you can flag someone down who will serve you. The only reason I keep coming back (and continually get disappointed with the food and service) is for the local, live music ... take the music away and I'd never return. :/More

We have been going to Victorian Station nearly every Friday night for the past 3+ yrs. The food prep has changed hands 4 times since we have been going there and has never been great. It is not a place to go for fine dining,...but more for the music provided by the Wampler Brothers and a good time with friends. The kitchen and menu are small, but what they have tastes good. They offer Cheeseburgers, BBQ, Chicken Salad, changing pasta dishes, Cheese and Fruit Platter, a few appetizers and desserts. The service was bad when The Black Dog Apothecary took over the food part of the venue but has greatly improved in recent weeks. You can't go wrong with the entertainment and fun factor, just don't expect a gourmet meal.More

Victorian Station This adorable restaurant is right in our neighborhood and we’ve been meaning to go there for years. It is a converted Victorian home in the Buckroe/Phoebus area of Hampton. The smoker is right next to the parking lot. If you weren’t thinking about...barbecue before, you definitely start thinking about it when you open your car door. We went on Thursday, which is open mike night. We got a table for two upstairs so we could see and listen without being right in front of the speakers. We ordered the barbecue for two: dry-rub ribs, pulled pork, brisket, beans, slaw, cornbread, two kinds of sauce. All of it was super smokey and tender. This is the only time I have ever had dry-rub ribs that I thought were any good. It was so much food, we literally could have fed our entire family of four and had left overs. There are other things on the menu other than barbecue, but I honestly can’t remember. Yes, the aroma was that compelling. Upon walking through the front door, we were greeted by a lovely woman who I took to be the owner or the hostess. She was super friendly and I felt like I was being welcomed into someone's home. Nope, she was a regular performer on open mike night! When we departed with the hostess for our table, she gave me a hug! She wouldn't have done it if she didn't sense that I am totally receptive to that sort of thing. The décor of the restaurant embodies the Victorian theme. The bar/restaurant is a casual place where we were seated and where the stage is located. Rather than Victorian, it’s more like being invited over to dinner at your country grandmother’s for a big family get-together. The other rooms in the house have more of the Victorian tea room style, and the owner told me that they have high tea and special events in those rooms. I’m not sure if they have regular restaurant service in there as well. The owner was a darling, ever present, bubbly woman. We really did feel specially taken care of. I hope I have the occasion to plan an event there sometime, I may just plan a tea to get the experience. Overall, we really enjoyed this unique and welcoming restaurant.More
