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.

When walked in with a reservation we were taken to a table that was a foot away from an extremely loud table of 8. We couldn’t hear each other or the waitress. We asked the hostess to be moved and she was so rude about it. We had reservations and there were several 4 tops available in the restaurant, but she decided to seat us in the bar area we think to be spiteful. Our very light meal with 3 of us and a couple of drinks was over $190.00. Food was just okay. No bread brought, just small appetizers sandwiches and entree. My son seriously ate again when he got home. Never again, so many places that are better.

Had reservation that was for 2:00. Door wasn't opened until 1:57; even with several people waiting on crutches/ in wheelchairs and no where outside/ in lower level to sit and wait.

Debris was visible under the table where we sat and even crumbs on the table as we were seated.

Meal was fine. Service very nice.

Overall disappointed due to opening moments.

Limited seating, food was average with limited menu, was seated near a very large group and had to move, drink (old fashion) was terrible compared to the one in the bar upstairs. Been there twice and won’t go back.

The Hunt Room is the perfect date night location with the man in your life. He will love the dark wood, the smell of Smokey bourbon and food. The Hunt Room has food for everyone. Plates are less dainty and more rugged however when placed in front of you, it is a work of art. We often order the burger which is cooked to perfection.

Casual but full of ambience, with a menu that matches the decor. Probrably best for adults to leave the kiddos at home, the bar atmophere might be a bit much for little ones. Prices were high, but not too out of line for the resort area or a special dinner

Graet night at the Hunt room. Everything was excellent and that is why we always return. The Hunt room has it's own character with it unique history and decoration. So easy to enjoy a night out with the free Valet parking and walking around the historic building that was saved from being another condo. Someday we will also be part of the on going history of this special place.

Everything was wonderful. Wish our seat was not by the kitchen door. There were plenty available tables, but this was our first time eating here so we did not know. Also, I wanted reservations for 6:30, but there were only openings for 4:30 and 5:30. By the time we left, there were still plenty of tables free which makes me wonder why I couldn't have a reservation at 6:30?? Baffling! Make sure you make your reservations weeks prior to get the time you want. Otherwise, food was delicious, drinks are over priced, nice atmosphere.

get the POUTINE. Totally worth the calories . Different and savory and amazing. Get the REUBEN -- but not if you suffer from TMJ as you won't be able to open your mouth wide enough for it -- super stacked with delicious corned beef pastrami. The salads were fresh. Seating comfortable. Service great. I can't wait to go BACK !! our server was great but I can't spell her name -- Villianna?

Good food, good service. The band took requests via a Text message as to what song you wanted them to play from a large selection. I had them dedicate a song to my wife for her 74 birthday, which they did.

This visit was to celebrate a birthday and our first time at this Hotel, as we are from the UK. The service from the moment we entered the site was exemplary. Our car was speedily taken away and the concierge welcomed us and guided us to the restaurant. Yes it was noisy, which we hadn’t expected and we could have done without the live band, however the food and service were excellent.

A special thanks must go to the Concierge, who encouraged us to look at other parts of the hotel while we were there, which made our first visit extra special.

We had a wonderful evening celebrating a friends birthday at The Hunt Room. It was restaurant week so two of us enjoyed the specials and we were not disappointed. The other member of our party ordered off the menu - her fried shrimp and brussell sprouts were delicious. Service was excellent and we enjoyed the live entertainment (which is the only reason that I rated the noise level a bit higher ). All in all it was a wonderful evening.

Disappointing, especially compared to (old) Cavalier experiences in the past. Food good, but pricey.
Waiter was pushy and intent on turning his table quickly. Hunt Room is very noisy and suitable only for quick-in, quick out dining, maybe drinks -not a really good evening experence. Maybe try Becca if
noisy bar-type place is not your idea of a pleasant evening. Upstairs lounge was pleasant enough but again too noisy for conversation. We, and our guests from Richmond truly felt rushed, and even a bit
"hustled." We are sad to give this report...we were looking forward to our experience.

Ok, hear we go.. My husband & I made reservations over two weeks in advance for Valentines Day because of an advertised special Valentines dinner they posted on Facebook. When we arrived for an early 6pm dinner, we were seated close to the bar which was ok and then given their regular menu not the special advertised Valentines Day menu. Our waiter was distant and slowly walked up and when asked about the special he said ah that the menu was posted by mistake but they would serve something special for two. Then he didn't come back until 25 minutes later to take our drink order or food. It was not busy in the dining room either. This is the frequent problem with this restaurant, the slow service! Our food was served family style to share, pork tenderloin with asparagus and mash potatoes. Good, but the strawberry salad was very bland. We finished it off with micro size white and raspberry truffles. Not sure it was worth the $50 price and hype. Someone came by and presented the women dining in the restaurant a red rose, which made up for the poor service. Its a shame because the food is usually quite good but the service is always the same, each visit we have made, very slow.. They need to hire someone for front of the house to keep up the service. We will be back because of the ambiance but maybe only for drinks and appetizers.

The best poutine fries, duck leg, and bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin we’ve ever had. Amazing service thanks to our server Adam who was attentive, helpful, and friendly throughout the entire meal. Fabulous atmosphere with great music too. And of course, I can’t overstate how wonderful the food was. You need to be eating here right now!

The atmosphere at the Hunt Room is great for a casual business outing or a very special evening with a very special person. The huge fireplace with the roaring fire and the rustic, almost lodge-like environment is super cozy.

The waiters are awesome and in touch with the clients immediately. Don't forget about the gift shop!!! The prices aren't cheap but the gifts/liquor there are awesome and unique. Check out the "Whiskey me away" t-shirts and Bourbon knit stocking caps!
