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.

Mediocre service. Most of the food tasted as though it was prepared in advance and reheated. Nice atmosphere-probably a nice place to meet for drinks, but the food is highly overrated.

The food was good the service across the board left a lot to be desired. Waiter didn’t tell us his name, ask anything about us, tell us about the place or the menu. Will come back but probably just to sit at the bar.

Was a very nice ambience. We were seated right away. My wife had view of the fireplace, which was nice on a November evening. Menus were QR codes. Bring your phone to read them. We both had the smoky old fashions. Awesome drink. Had the Brussel sprouts - very good. Both had the swordfish special and rounded out the evening with the apple cheesecake.

overall excellent. good service.

It is pretty dark in there when they don’t have the fireplace on. The servers definitely don’t have a nice conversation with you, just small talk. Also the steak comes on a sizzling hot hot plate so you need to not order it to temperature you like as it keeps cooking!! And gets so so dry! So if you get the steak ask for another plate.

Food is really good. Just kinda dark and blah without the fireplace or any candles.

While being seated, the hostess told us only had 1hr and 30mins to dine.

The food was mediocre and their whisky selection that they had in stock was sparse.

However the ambiance and mixed drinks were very fun and unique.

The food was enjoyable and the service was good not great. What took away from the experience was a group of individuals that were next to us and being extremely loud. The group is not the fault of the restaurant but for an establishment that is a bit up there in pricing we would expect a bit better ambience! Still recommend a visit just be aware. It is all very stuffy in doors, which is a bit concerning in the time of COVID. Be careful!

I planned a very special dinner for my fiancé for his birthday. We arrived and at once he was amazed by the room and the decor. We were seated and our server came through and said the menu was online... That was a little frustrating because it didn't work. But we looked it up on google and figured out what to eat.
I asked about drinks and she said oh we have a menu. How is it that the drinks menu was fine with paper but the others had to be online. So that was frustrating. But she told us about the specials and we ended up ordering a full flight of the tarnished true drinks which were good and we enjoyed reading about them. As well as ordering the Brussel sprouts and the ribeye with purple mashed potatoes it was an enjoyable meal. We were delighted when they asked us about a free desert for his birthday which really made the night extra special. We look forward to returning hopefully when all this covid is over and we can enjoy our meal without masks and with the company of our friends.

The ambience is lovely with hunt pictures and beautiful dark woods. A distillery is there making their own whiskey, rum, and gin. Quail and duck are on the menu. Happy hr is just well liquor for $5, otherwise drinks are expensive. The Cavalier is an old hotel revived into a beautiful place.

The food was good... a bit overpriced for the content. We were a little uncomfortable as we felt the tables were too close together during this time of COVID as the restaurant let in more people. This did not make for a relaxing dinner as we felt we should eat quickly and leave. Trying to be cautious and support restaurants during this time but we didn’t feel comfortable staying for dessert.

Hunt room is a small, historic place to get food and drinks at the Cavalier. Since it’s small it tends to be loud when it’s full on Saturday night. Put live music on top of that and you get the picture. I will say the music added to the enjoyable evening we had. Apps were average but the main course, Hunt Burger, was superb. Despite the full house, service was excellent. Everyone working there was friendly and professional. Make this a stop on your list, we will definitely return.
