Steak was good but not great, plain frozen fries which were decent, salad was good and plentiful, prices are decent. This is a bar with an extensive menu, you will smell smoke, and our waitress was not friendly at all and we had to ask for everything including refills. But if I lived here I would eat here again as... More

The food is good, and inexpensive! I would give the steaks 5 stars, but this is a bar! There is an attached smoking room, and smoke billows in every time the door is open.

We came here after reading the reviews which were positive, but when we showed up no one asked for our name and to inform us of a wait. I waved down one of three waitresses and finally was told the wait would be 45 mins and she still did not ask for the name of our party. After waiting we... More

Every night is a different special, mostly steak. We were there on Sunday night and my husband had 1 pound of steamed shrimp for 12.95 (nothing with it). I had the 8 oz NY strip for 11.95 with 2 sides. Prices were reasonable, and food was solid, but could have been so much better with just a little effort. A... More

I had a Delmonico steak - oh it was soooo good from the grill. My husbands sandwich was enough for two. This is a bar - a bit dark but it also a family restaurant. Seating is generous.

I had their Delmonico steak lunch special. I had a small garden salad and French fries. The steak was tender and perfectly seasoned.

I expected a restaurant with a bar, but it is clearly more of a bar scene, and a sports bar at that. The food wasn't bad and they had a decent variety. The prices were also reasonable. Had I expected this to be a bar and not a restaurant, my review would be quite different. As it was, I was... More

This place is more restaurant than bar as people of all ages come here to eat. Finding a place to sit is the hard part, but worth it when you get your food. I ate a steak sandwich ($6.50) that was tasty and tender. I saw many steak platters come out of the kitchen: proof that good food is more... More

Before you jump in your car and head over understand you are walking into a sports bar that is smoker friendly. This place has been around for as long as I can remember and have many customers like us that have been stopping in for many years. Alcohol is reasonably priced and the steak dinners are some of the best... More

Family owned restaurant that is known for our steaks and friendly atmosphere. We serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night. We believe that quality doesn't have to strain your wallet. We sing karaoke with over 20,000 songs in our library every Friday & Saturday. We play pool, beer pong, corn hole, Texas Hold 'em and NTN Trivia/Poker. Our jukebox doubles as a Photo Booth and allows you to post to your Facebook or just play your songs from your smartphone. Over 15 TV's and the complete Sports Package from DIRECTV. NCAA, NASCAR, and horseraces, too! Some have called us a neighborhood hangout, local's hangout, corner bar. The Virginian Pilot called us "The Best Good, Cheap Steak in Hampton Roads." Honestly, for some, we're called home. We're a friendly face, a family that grows daily, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Our customers mean everything to us. We know that you could go anywhere but you're truly appreciated at the Bell!
