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.

seated promptly but had to wait for service. Ordered a glass of wine and the waiter brought a bottle. Had to clarify that I just wanted a glass. Was not offered a paper menu like others around us and we didn’t want to use the camera code. Out appetizer came and none of us had received our silverware and napkins. Two of us ordered steaks, one med. rare and the other medium. When they arrived both were completely overdone. Sent them back while the the member of the group ate their meal. Steaks finally came back out and the results were the same as before. Not wanting to wait again, we ate what we were served. The meat lack any flavor and sadly had to ask for A-1 sauce. The restaurant was not crowded and no one from management came to see how we were after the first steaks were sent back and the new ones arrived. We have eaten in the Hunt Club several times in the past but this time were truly disappointed. We had thought about doing dessert and coffee but just wanted to hurry and leave after the meal. Paid over $200 for three people who left feeling underwhelmed.

My family went to Hunt Room on Valentines Day. The ambiance was amazing. The cocktails were very good. The only complaint was the food. My husband and I ordered Surf n Turf. My steak came out very undercooked and had to be sent back. The overall quality of the steak did not meet the expectations of $45 meal. When it returned it was overcooked and chewy. Also, the plate came back with my same reheated sides. They could have at the very least put fresh sides on the plate. We will return for cocktails, but not for the food.

It was restaurant week, and it was a late reservation but the catch of the was sold out and we were not offered another fish option. I ordered a wedge salad and my husband shrimp for the first course, both were delicious. But the waiter came in with our second course before I finished my salad🤨 furthermore the second dish arrived with another side of potatoes than described, so I finished before my husband had his second course. So a little annoying when you are out for a romantic date. The desserts were delicious, but I will only give Hunt Room 3 stars this time.

Great menu, super taste. Room is very nice and cozy with big fire. A little pricey on the beverage front, but otherwise reasonable for the quality (absolutely fabulous). Will be going again for sure.

It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. From the doorman and car valet service, to the wait service, the cocktails and the food. The service was super fast even though they seemed pretty socially distanced full. The decor is fascinating with the hunting theme, vintage shotguns on the walls, etc. The bourbon cocktails we had were great and my husband's smoking bourbon was literally smoking! He had salmon and I had the cornish game hen and they were both great. Finally for my husband's birthday we shared a slice of the apple bourbon cheesecake and it was out of this world. We spent under $110 for two which is on the low side for us when we go out to an upscale restaurant. It is a tavern so not as formal as going to a high end restaurant. For us it was the perfect birthday celebration.

Our server was great, but we made reservations for my fiance's birthday, but got kicked out for a private event. Was very discouraged that we were not informed about this either when we booked reservation OR walked in. We traveled 30+ minutes to go, only to be kicked out after an hour of being there.

Great food great ambience. Although we had reservations, it took a while to get seated due to the 16 year old hostess also assisting in take out orders from guests at the hotel as well but it was worth the wait!

I was honestly disappointed in the dining experience. We were seated in front of the doors to the kitchen - loud, noisy and awkward but worst of all is the fact that we were under very bright lights, which diminished the ambiance considerably and didn’t give me the sense that we were valued customers.

After less than 2 hours, our waitress came to tell us the table was booked and that we needed to vacate it . . . I understand the need to seat your tables as many times as possible in a given evening but it didn’t sit well or again, convey that our business was valued.

I love the Cavalier but I won’t likely come back to the Hunt room any time soon.

The food and service were great. There were just a lot of young, loud, over-served customers climbing over walls to get to their seats and laying on the sofas by the fire. Felt a little like a frat party.
