“Definitely overrated”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We finally decided to try Burtons Grill because of the great Trip Advisor reviews. The service was okay, but not particularly attentive. The she-crab soup and crab cakes were both oversalted. I think both might have been good if they had not been too salty for our tastes. The other meal we ordered, a steak dish, was ho-hum. Not bad, but no better than many less expensive chain restaurants. In short, we felt that we did not get our money's worth at this restaurant.

I am sharing your specific comments with our culinary team to make sure we get it right. Our service should always be engaging but unobtrusive.

“Good place for a relaxing night out”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Good selection of food to choose from, even has a gluten free menu. The sandwiches/burgers looked great and their entre's were very well prepared. Their fish was fresh and very tasty. This is a nice place for dinner and hanging out to chill after.

“Great place to eat!!!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We visited our son in Norfolk prior to his deploying overseas. We drove around the area and stopped into Burton's Grill not knowing what to expect. Wow were we impressed. The food was delicious, the ambience great, and the staff was very attentive. We loved the rolls, hamburgers, and french fries. We liked this place so much we were hoping there was one near our hometown but unfortunately their isn't. Guess we will have to wait for our son to get home to go there again.

“Warm and cozi good food and wine”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Burton's Grill is a good place for a casual, business or romantic dinner or lunch. Their selection of food from fish, chicken and steak will suit your appetite. Their portions are large, so you may want to take home a "Doggie" bag. They also have a big selection of wines to meet the everyone's needs. The service is excellent, very attentive without being obtrusive. I feel confident you will not be disappointed.
