“Unnacceptable behavior”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Food is good but service is really poor.
In spite of the fact the restaurant was almost empty, we had to wait too long to be able to order some desserts. In fact, I had to personnally find him in the restaurant and ask him to come back.
And what was really unacceptable is that they charged their suggested 18% tip, even if I explicitely removed it (as explained on ticket).
I suspect they don't really care, as they know most tourists will never come back again and/or initiate a complaint with VISA.
I do not recommend that restaurant.

“Average Service, Update to Televisions needed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

I had dinner with some friends and wanted to watch the NBA payoffs while doing so. The televisions they had throughout the place were incredibly old without a good picture. With one TV all the players looked red....really??? Invest a little back into the presentation for those that want to chill and eat at the bar. Service was just average as well

“We liked it:)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed it while visiting beautiful downtown Norfolk. Food was great, service not the fastest, but laid back. No complaints at all, everything was as ordered. If you are in a rush, then probably skip it. If you want a relaxing, good tasting, good drink, you will like it. You should add a salad to your meal, personally, I like the ranch dressing. Love the shrimp on the Barbie! Bread is free and yummy. My daughter loved the steak! Many options to suit most tastes. No complaints at all, great place to eat while staying downtown!

“excellent service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We had dinner with party of 10 on July 5th while we were staying at Sheraton hotel next to resturant. We were visiting VA beach Everybody food was great but my son's steak was little rare. Manager came and appologise, fixed it immeditely with fresh sides and complimentry desert. He was very concern about the quality and service. Our waiter provided excelent service and all of us were very happy with everything there, will go back again.

Had dinner at the Outback on the first night of our conference. I tried one of the new steaks with mushrooms and marsala sauce. It was very good.
