A SOPHISTICATED SOCIAL LOUNGE ON THE VIRGINIA BEACH OCEANFRONT Sip and savor in the distinctively styled Hunt Room, a historic social lounge in Virginia Beach that brings to life the intricate process of a brew house and distillery. Modern style is carefully fused with Southern charm into a polished interpretation of the fabled hearth rooms where men gathered to sip bourbon, warm by the fire and exchange stories of the hunt. Today, The Hunt Room is an intimate tavern tucked away in the heart of The Cavalier, serving simple cuisine inspired by rustic, old world traditions alongside hand-crafted cocktails, beers and wines.

Wait staff never acknowledged that it was an anniversary dinner, the happy hour food was good but they had much of it pre-made in the back so some dishes were cold. The venison entree was poorly cooked (outside over done and the middle rare) and under seasoned.
On the bright side the drinks were tasty and the ambiance was nice. Get there early to try to miss the high ambient noise. Highly suggest only going for happy hour (4-6) as a first stop for your night.

This is probably the fourth time we’ve eaten at the Hunt room since moving to Virginia Beach year and a half ago. We took a business client with us last night and I have to be honest the service was not good and the food was not great either.

The Hunt Room was cozy, however, it was one degree too hot to have the fireplace roaring. When we walked in the main entrance we were greeted by Christmas carolers dressed in period garb, very cool! We walked around the grounds and the Raleigh Room before dinner, it was very festive and well attended.

Very very noisy, ok food, terrible wine by the glass choices. Probably busy because there are few places to go in Virginia Beach that are cheesy tourist traps.

Wonderful time for my husbands birthday dinner. The smoked old fashions were perfect. Our waitress, I think her name was Brooke, was great and very attentive with out being pushy. The host wasn’t very pleasant or welcoming and became irritated when we asked for a booth. Other than him, our experience was great.

The attention to service by host and waitstaff was impeccable. The little things really sets this place apart from the others. Meal was excellent except truffle fries were cold-only disappointment. The Hunt Room is cozy and quiet. Make sure you make your way to the restrooms as the tasting room is something to see.

We were seated near the bar area, which was a little loud. The food was fantastic, well prepared and delicious. I had the citrus brined Cornish game hen. It was cooked perfectly, and the Brussels sprouts were so good! We also enjoyed a few of their craft cocktails. We will definitely dine there again!

We spent Thanksgiving afternoon at The Hunt Room. We were seated quickly and our server was prompt in taking our drink orders. It was not at all crowded and with the fireplace crackling away we all relaxed and enjoyed the festive atmosphere. None of us felt like eating the traditional turkey (don't hate) so we ordered the quail, a reuben sandwich (corned beef cooked in house) and the short rib French dip. All were delicious, however, we all sampled the quail and I have to admit it was outstanding. They have a nice selection of beer and great signature drinks to choose from. The relaxed atmosphere was what we were looking for and The Hunt Room did not disappoint!

Service was dull. Asked about drinks but the server didn't make a recommendation or tell us about their signature cocktails. Told us whatever is on the drink menu is what we have. Customer needed help deciding. Only knowledgeable of the food menu but we never mentioned we were there to eat dinner.

Wonderful spot. Great food, great ambiance, great service. Only concern is the massive TV they decided to add above the fireplace for absolutely no reason completely ruining the mood. Thankfully we sat in a corner so the bright light from the TV didn’t hit us in the face.

My wife and I's food were both over cooked (fillet mignon and the quail dinner), side dishes weren't seasoned well and seemed almost like canned vegetables (corn and beans i think). The rosado was not cooked well either.

The steak knives are more like butter knives and difficult to cut.

However the duck fat fries were great, chicken lollipops were okay. Cocktails were great.

The Host Tuesday evening was very nice. Valet parking was polite and timely. Our waiter Dealyn was outstanding and very nice! Was glad we had him.

At the moment, I would recommend the Hunt Room to a friend for cocktails and appetizers only.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The food was outstanding and the ambiance of the restaurant was very nice. It encapsulated a feel of upscale cozy meeting an old school hunting club. We enjoyed the flights of their home bourbons and the quail dish was impressively delicious. I can’t wait to go back!

This was my second time at the Hunt Room and loved it again. I love the ambiance and the variety of food to offer. The only awkward part was the half bar seating/half booth. It kind of takes away from the intimacy of a date dinner.

Not really what I expected from the hotel advertisement, there was no fire in the large fireplace. It was not cozy and loud. The food was average at best. I would not back.

Overall good, a bit disappointed in the bar/cocktail program. This has slipped not sure if it is a loss of personnel or a lack of good spirits on the back bar, but it has slipped. The food was very good, but I’d like to see more non-fried items on my menu. The noise level was a bit high to have a conversation. I’m going to give it another shot this week to see if a weekday makes a difference.
