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.

This is a true experience of days gone by. From valet service at the hotel steps, to the beautiful entrance to working your way to the restaurant, all perfection. Then the large warm fire at the entrance of the restaurant to the dining itself, is a true treat in the very best of ways. We love dining here. Excellence and the very best experience for fine dining and ambience

This was first time going and I liked the atmosphere. We found the service was very good and the food was good but nothing that really jumped out as unique. All in all a good night and would return.

Food and service was very good, but we did feel as though we were being rushed through the experience. Our server was friendly and professional, we just felt like the goal was to get us through the courses and out the door as quickly as possible.

Everything was great. I came with a group of friends and we ordered one of everything off the happy hour menu plus some truffle fries and lobster bisque. Our server, Dylan, was also awesome and definitely made our experience top notch. We will definitely come back.

Will absolutely be back. The cocktails are delicious, the food is exceptional, and the ambiance is perfectly casual, but also special. I had the smoked old fashioned, the friend shrimp as an appetizer, the filet mignon for dinner, and the apple bourbon cheese cake with a decaf coffee for dessert.

Decadent, cooked to perfection, and easy atmosphere with cozy couches, dim lighting, and some football on in the bar area. Perfect evening at the Cavalier.

Went for new year. Paid a lot of money for the dinner and NYE party package. Took 3 hours to finish dinner, granted there were 3 (small) courses, our meals didn’t come out all together. 3 out of the 4 of us got our meals (which we found out were meant for another table) the final meal didn’t come out for another 45 minutes and then it wasn’t cooked correctly. They did take the corkage fee off of our bill for the inconvenience which was nice.

It wasn’t quite what we expected for a romantic 30th anniversary dinner. Our wedding reception 30 years earlier had been at the Cavalier, so we thought we’d celebrate our 30 year anniversary at one of their upscale restaurants. Atmosphere was more like a sports bar; very noisy. Food was very tasty, but not the elegant dining experience we expected. We were asked whether it was a special occasion when we made the reservation, but I’m not sure why since it was never mentioned except by the maître d’ who said congratulations as he brought us to our table.

The crab cake , fried oysters & shrimp were awesome . Server was attentive. However , I cannot believe the Cavalier has already removed its Christmas Tree and any reminder of Christmas has disappeared. Ba humbug . So disappointed !

The hotel is beautiful! We expected a fine dining experience based on their prices, but it’s just a casual dining restaurant. Many people were dressed up, but 25% in jeans & sweatshirts. It was VERY loud, the music was loud, and as the restaurant filled up it was almost deafening. We specifically went for a couple of unique entrees, both were not available. The wine list was nice but no one knew much about them. The list is mostly $100+, they should have someone knowledgeable.
We picked our own wine, luckily we know our wines pretty well. Overall disappointing.

I’ve been to the Hunt Room a couple of times before my recent visit and fell in love with the duck but when I ordered it the last time it wasn’t good at all. I know restaurants tend to change menus for the season but what they served me was bad to say the least. The duck reminded me of a rubber chicken served with mash sweet potato baby food which was a purée. I was so disappointed. The waitress offered to fix the problem and I appreciate that but I went there specifically for the duck. She did bring us brussel sprouts which was apart of the original dish and they were great but the duck, in my opinion, needs some adjusting. Our oyster appetizer was good as well.

I took my husband here for his birthday. Everything was amazing. I ordered the “portrait of a gentlemen” cocktail and it was perfect. We both ordered the filet mignon. It was the best steak we had ever tasted. We will be returning

We were seated and food arrived promptly and was delicious. It was a very crowded night with what seemed to be many holiday parties, so it was loud and we were seated at an awkward table that didn’t really seem to be in the eating area, but that was okay as our plans were to just get a quick and delicious meal after traveling.

Great food! Great atmosphere! Service was eh. It was correct but the waiter had zero personality and forgot to ask my son for his drink (he’s 8 and we let him order for himself). Every time we would talk to him he was just dry and stoic. Not the worst we’ve ever had, but certainly not the one to request next time. The mask seemed to be an impediment for his expressions as well so he could just be being held back by the mask. Back to the food. The meals were amazing! The meats could be cut with butter knives and the cook temps were perfection! The Cornish hen was extremely flavorful! The venison loin and roast were delectable and the steak was mouth-watering. We will definitely keep The Hunt Room on our favorites list.
