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.

The environment was perfect for a nice anniversary or special date. Carson was our server and she was fantastic. I would definitely come back again.

Dinner and the service was excellent - our waitress was attentive and informative. The fried oyster appetizer was wonderful as was the beet salad, fried shrimp dinner (lightly breaded so perfect). Guests at our table had the pork chop and raved and the fillet was cooked perfectly. We will be returning soon - just a wonderful evening!

The ambiance of the Hunt Room is terrific - even in the middle of pandemic restrictions. The Tarnished Truth is excellent - I bought a bottle and two tumblers. The service was very professional and the food was fabulous. Can't wait to enjoy this again but without a mask!

Food and service was good
However, it is call the Hunt room for a reason
And all the dead animals on the wall was a bit disquieting for our group
Would not go back for that reason
Food was very good though
If you are a delicate sort- get it to go

The Hunt Room had good reviews and a good reputation. The service was fine, though social distancing was not rigorously enforced. The food was average: my acquaintance enjoyed the burger, my fish was okay but the potatoes were way over salted. The menu has a lot of options, though some were a bit pricey relative to other restaurants in the VA Beach area. Of the restaurants associated with the Cavalier, it was my least favorite option.

The Hunt Room was a great little spot that offers great food choices that are elevated. The distillery attached provides a great tour and information on the space. I highly suggest this place as a fancy casual date spot.

The Hunt Room is handsomely decorated with large windows looking into the adjacent distillery. Its location in The Cavalier Hotel is an added plus - beautiful place to explore and have a cocktail. We were expecting exceptional food and it just missed for us.

We had such an enjoyable experience we came back the next night. We loved the menu which had different dishes than you typical Resturant and the quality of the food and ambiance was so good. We loved our waitress (Brooke M) who served us both night with such care and attention to detail. Hunt Room is now our favorite place to eat on VA beach!

I don’t know if the Hunt Room had a bad day, but the food was not up to the usual standard. We are always so proud to take our visitors there to eat, and I hoping this slip is just because of Covid.

My husbands cheeseburger was very dry. Spices used were too overwhelming. I had the Duck Ramen. The soup contained the entire breast which I had to cut in the bowl of broth. It was very pretty looking when it arrived, but trying to eat it was a challenge. The salad my guest ordered was adequate in size however the bowl was so small she was spilling the contents on the table when trying to cut it. My other guest ordered a burger and it too was very, very dry.

When asked about drinks off the menu we were told, we don’t have a full cocktail menu. If you want something, I’ll run to the bar to see if we have it.

It was truly disappointing and embarrassing.

Thomas, our waiter, was great. Fun atmosphere. We were there early on a Friday night and could tell by the crowd and how they were dressed that they were gearing up for a great party atmosphere later. Food was very good, nice choices of fish and non fish options.

Loved it. The cheese on the burger was not what I expected, and was not good, but the burger itself (elk, bison, beef mix) was one of the best I've ever had. Awesome vibe. I could totally see myself bringing my wife and some friends back even during colder months and sitting in the big leather chairs and by the fireplace. Hightop and Booth seating. Great service. Lava cake was solid for dessert!

Dinner at the Hunt Room never disappoints! Everything from the Fried Shrimp or Duck Fat Fries and Poutine to the Ramen is outstanding and full of flavor! Their Apple Bourbon Cheesecake was absolutely decadent and the service provided by their bartender James, at our table near the bar, was both anticipatory and unintrusive. Even with the new guidelines and procedures involved with Phase 2, the Hunt Room team was cheerful, welcoming and competent.

Due to COVID, they were out of the oysters, but we ordered the meat & cheese, NC shrimp, hunt burger & duck leg. Everything came out timely and delicious. The truffle burrata & burger were amazing. The duck leg was huge and super tender. Cocktails were great as well.

This is my second visit to the Hunt Room. The cocktails (must try the old fashioned!) and the appetizers are always amazing. The ambiance is very cool, and if the large fireplace is blazing...please take some time to relax with a drink in front of it before you leave.
We ordered several appetizers: the Brussel Sprouts, the Poutine, the Salt and Vinegar Fried Oysters and the Goat Cheese Salad...all of which we would recommend. My husband and I are foodies (he is a chef after all) and we both agreed that the duck fat fries were delicious, but the thick wedges are a little too much. We just wish the potatoes were thinner and a bit crispier. Also, ask for extra Hazelnut Mayo with the Brussel Sprouts. It’s pretty amazing.
For dinner , my husband ordered the Duck Leg entree and I had the Lobster Mac and Cheese. He felt that the leg wasn’t cooked “confit” but still tasted good. My dish had ample lobster and good flavor. This dish was substantial...could have easily been shared. The chorizo makes this dish a little salty (and I love salt). We took the leftovers to go and plan on tossing it with a little more pasta to balance it put.
Don’t forget the Apple Pie Cheesecake for dessert. We both like just a taste for dessert and we ate the whole slice! The waiter nudged us here on getting dessert and I am so glad he did! Enjoy!
