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 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.

Server never poured another glass of wine after the 1st. Slow service. Not attentive. Food was mediocre and overpriced. There was yelling in the restaurant due to a horse race displayed on TV. We weren't impressed with the atmosphere considering the cost of the meals.

Fantastic service. Limited menu of plant-based options not smothered in duck or other animal fat. Some selections were good but mostly fair. We preferred other restaurants across both hotel properties. Wouldn’t return here.

Pros:
- Our server was awesome, super attentive to detail and explaining the food
- Drinks were delicious and creative
- Food portions were great for the price
- Atmosphere and design of restaurant is unlike another
Cons:
- A group of people near us was vaping inside the restaurant while seated for dinner and the staff said nothing as the restaurant filled with cotton candy smoke
- Our server seemed a little too busy, we had to wait a long time to get things, but honestly I’m sure they are adjusting to a whole different ballgame serving food during Covid-19

We had a wonderful dinner with the family. We are from the DC area, enjoy dining out, and were impressed with everything. We had the brussels sprouts, wedge salad, oyster stew, burger, drinks, lava cake, and cheesecake. Even the kids' menu dishes were great. We will definitely return on our next VA beach visit.

Worth every penny! The food was fantastic. It was my first time trying quail and duck and I’m so glad I chose here to get my first taste of it. I didn’t personally get any drinks, but my husband said it was the best old fashioned he’s ever had. The atmosphere as well was very nice and the staff was friendly. The dessert was really good too. It was the best Black Forest cake I’ve had in a long time. I cannot recommend Hunt Room enough. I can’t wait to go back.
