    We went for burger night, 2 for 1 pricing. The burgers were huge, and delicious. Our server was very attentive. Looking forward to our next visit.

    Dined on 10/4/2014
    This is our favorite spot, pizza is great and buffalo shrimp is the best around. I gave the over all rating a 3 because we had a reservation for 20 at 6 but since a game ran long we weren't seated until 6:45. It was embarrasing to have everyone just standing around for 45 minutes. I wish I would have known they do things like this, probably won't bring large parties in the future or bother with reservations.

  • NFL Draft Party?
    Zombislayer001
    Dined on 5/8/2014
    Wow. This was just horrible. So we went here to catch "The Biggest NFL Draft Party in the Hampton Roads Are!". Welp when we got there, it was anything but. There was absolutely nobody there. Okay, whatever, the food is probably really good. I got 3 Stella's, an order of underpar and undercooked mozzarella sticks, and an order of medium boneless bourbon BBQ wings. The wings looked like the small stuff you get in one of those Tyson boneless wings box. They weren't horrible, just insanely small. After all of that hype, I definitely left disappointed. But not more disappointed than I was when I saw the $50 bill. Bottom line, you're paying high class prices for low quality food. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone but an extremely wealthy rat.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/22/2014
    To start I booked to reserve a table because we were told the UFC fight would be showing. When we got there we had to wait for 20 mins past the reservation due to no seating. Then when asked which TV the fight would be on they said they were not showing it. Ended up leaving and buying it at the house. Food and drinks are always good though. Great sports bar.

    AGreatTimeVIP
    Dined on 2/16/2014
    There is no shortage of sports to entertain while you dine. The sound is loud, however, a great sound system, so not irritating. Service is very good; they aim to please. Food was very appetizing and portions were ample; price was reasonable. We plan on going again and reserving a table for some pool after dinning.

    We'd been to Shorebreak a few years before so we knew it was a casual place. Our initial thought was we would eat dinner and then play some pool but the pool tables (there are 5) were constantly busy so we just relaxed with dinner. The food was good and basic (my grilled tuna was delicious) and there was plenty of it. This place is definitely family friendly as we saw several families dining that night with kids who had carnival-type games to play in another section. The wait staff and crew seemed to have a good system down from seating to making sure we had what we needed. For a casual place, I would recommend Shorebreak.

  • Great Sunday football spot

    Dined on 9/8/2013
    The service was great, they sat us at a table where we could see/watch the football games that we came there to see. Great service! It would have been nice to have a more outdoor appeal since it was a beautiful day outside and the inside of Shorebreak is very dark BUT we had football on TVs 360 degrees almost so we experienced a day of football and that's what we wanted!

    Dined on 7/6/2013
    We were in Virginia Beach for our teenage daughter's softball tournament. We wanted to go to a fun, non-touristy place that would have food that both we and our daughter would like. Shorebreak has great food and is a lot of fun! Very casual, energetic atmosphere! We had wings as an appetizer -- best wings we've ever had! My husband had fish tacos, I had a grilled chicken sandwich, and my daughter was happy to see that they offered a gluten-free pizza! We all loved our meals. There are billiard tables on one side of the restaurant for those who want to shoot pool, and I think some video games in back for kids. But still, the place wasn't so loud that we couldn't hear each other. We would definitely return there if in the area.

    We had a group get-together, so the noise level with the live entertainment made it a little difficult to carry on a conversation. However, the food and drinks were delicious, and our server, Megan was very personable and on the ball. We will definitely be back again. Highly recommend the signature sauce on the pizza!

    Maybe it was an off night since I usually love coming here. I arrived 15 min early for my reservation but it was 20 after before we got a table then 15 more min before we got our drink orders taken. Our poor waitress had lost her voice but once she got to us she did do a great job. No audio or big screen for the UFC until the last couple of fights which was very annoying, I may be looking for a new UFC event location at least during football season.
