First time here for my husband and I. Chose it from the great reviews here! It didn't disappoint. Highly recommend fried green tomatoes, Thai poppin shrimp, shrimp and grits, braised lamb shank and bacon Bloody Mary. The 3 course special was a great deal. Decor and ambience were upscale. Top notch service from Denise!

I eat here almost monthly and the food is fantastic. I always get the salads and love them. The beet salad is seasonal and fantastic! Their soups are great also. Everything I've tried here has been great.

Very good burgers, and when we went we found live jazz guitar on the patio during happy hour. A welcome attraction. The onion rings are really pretty amazing.

Wow, that's all I have to say, this restaurant knows what it is to cook great food, hats off to the chefs. Our Waitress was on point with the service, coupled with her bright radiant smile. I had the bison meatloaf, it was by far the best meatloaf I have ever tasted; flavors going off like fireworks on my tongue.... More

we were looking for a place to eat in Newport News and what a find. The food was outstanding but the service was out of this world. My girls wanted something different and we were very surprised. The wine selections were great and the servings were very large. We will visit more often.

Everything about this restaurant was amazing from the food to the drinks to the ambience. Beautiful restaurant with a wonderful music selection. Tracey our server was very friendly. I would highly recommend the caiprinha, the Brazilian, a cocktail created by Second Street's very own, Tracy.

Thank Danielle N
