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.

We arrived early (6pm) on a week night expecting a relatively quiet dinner in a cozy atmosphere. We were wrong. A very loud bar crowd and equally loud music compromised the spirit of fine dining. We were seated in the furthest corner of the restaurant which helped a bit but the noise was still distracting. The service was quite good and the food was better than the raucous atmosphere but not “5 star”. The Hunt Room has potential to be a true destination dining experience but management has some work to.

Our waiter, Thomas, provided impeccable service. The honey-stung brussel sprouts were delicious as an appetizer. My husband and I ordered the fish and chips (our usual at Hunt Room) and it was very good, not overcooked, but moist. My teenage boys ordered the lacquered duck, as is their usual, and it was fabulous. Food and service never disappoint. A tried and true favorite restaurant of ours.

Great service. We had Jay. Awesome, classy environment. Fish and chips were wonderful - the burger was good, but not the best I’ve had. Touring the hotel afterward was quite the treat - so luxurious! Overall loved it and can’t wait to go back.

If you're not a fan of hunting this is not the place for you but if you're a bourbon fan that is easily overlooked. Regarding the food, my husband ordered the hamburger and it was both flavorful and juicy. I ordered the bacon wrapped pork tenderloins which I would rate as okay but a little dry. While it was artfully presented with 4 small whole carrots I would have also liked it with more vegetables but that is my opinion. In a return trip I would order the hamburger. Last but not least both of us have to say that the service was totally outstanding. From the valet service to the wait staff and the manager it was a really special night out.

Our waiter took quite some time getting to our table. As we ordered he had this impatient and zero cares attitude about serving us. He seemed annoyed that my husband made some modifications to his burger order. Water took a bit to be refilled as well.
The food was just ok. We had the Brussels sprouts, the stew and the friend shrimp as appetizers. It was fine. For the main courses two people had burgers, fish and chips and a salad. While I thought the big wedge fries were cool. My husbands burger was made completely wrong and tasted like they got the meat from a cafeteria somewhere.
The bill, which was supposed to be split down the middle, got completely messed up. The manager did step in and quickly resolve it (I hope !)
The service was mediocre. The food was meh. I know we all stay at the Cavalier again. I don’t think we will eat here again.

Nice ambiance although we went early, so it was quiet. Later gets a little more crowded with live music. Service is excellent and they have an interesting menu. The food is actually as tasty as the menu suggests. Of course, there are less expensive places you could visit, but this is definitely well worth it. They have an extensive beer, wine and liquor menu and a bar area if you wanted something a little less formal.

The Hunt Room is situated under the Cavalier Hotel, which is worth a visit in its own right.

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.

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.
