I have only been here a couple of times and every time I feel like I need to come more often. Food was amazing- I had the pork rind “nachos”, and the cherry french toast with the black bean hummus. My kids had the raspberry donuts for dessert and all the dishes were amazing! Service was superb and delicious meal in a comfortable and fun environment- need to make this a weekly tradition.

My family and I made a reservation for 2pm. We got there a few minutes before and checked in. Our table was dirty so we had to wait for it to be clean. Upon sitting down no one greeting us or even offered us beverages. We sat there for 20 minutes while we watched servers continually pass by our table and even seemed to be ignoring us. The table next to us was served their food by three servers at the same time while no one once came to ours. There was also servers standing at the bar talking while we waited for service that we never received. I was looking forward to coming to this restaurant, but with the poor service I received and no one even trying to stop us when we walked out to try and rectify the situation I will not be returning.

We went to The Nest as a recommendation from our friends. We were celebrating our 19th year anniversary, so we wanted to be a special night. We ordered the fried Korean chick breasts. When the food arrived we got chicken tights, when we asked the waitress she stated "Oh they forgot to change the menu". We were very disappointed with our experience. Our waitress was very busy taking care of the bar and the incoming clients, so the waiting for our drinks, appetizer and food was long. Also, there was very noisy in the dining area with people shouting and being loud. Our overall experience was not very good and less than desirable.

I have never had a bad meal at Nest, but I chose this restaurant and four of us attended so I always want everyone to be happy. We had a variety of different meals, but everyone commented on how good they were. I'd especially like to give a shout-out to Gina, our server. Everyone also commented on how cheery she was, the orders were timely and perfect, and she found the right balance between being attentive and letting us talk about our business. Thank you!

This Gem is hidden at a Golf Resort in Newport news. Kiln Creek, I Read some of the reviews and they had some neat Menu items , we ordered two starters and two meals plus drinks. That was it was timed very nicely , We couldn't even finish all of the appetizer's (size wise) it was so good ! we had the smoked chicken wings and shredded pork nachos over fried pork Rhine's. I would have never expected such a flavorful dish based of pork Rhine's. the wings were very tasty also. I had the Korean fried chicken and my date had the Steak and medley of potato's It was all All very good.
Drinks were also Exceptional.
Very Interesting lil Restaurant. Cant wait to go back and try more stuff. Had to take 3 boxes home. Great service. Looks like they have room outside also. Thanks

A little dirty with flies are all the restaurant. The hostess or lack thereof wasn’t too friendly as all. Just sat us down with no menu, barely even a hello. We had not waitress for 15 mins. I had to request a service. She was very nice and took care of us and other tables but the other wait staff was a hot mess and the places was full of flies. Such a turn off, it likes was were eating outdoors. The server Megan was very nice. Shyla was kind but the others not so much.

Good service. Hubby liked his flat bread. My burger was good but was between 2 slices of thick bread which made it very difficult to hold without it falling apart. Limited menu & a bit overpriced. Seated at table on enclosed patio. Gas heater and open door made it hard for temperature to be regulated. Would have preferred being seated indoors.

Brunch with my birthday boy. We celebrated his 7th birthday with family the day prior so this was an outing with just mommy and son. He was so excited! Our waitress was very engaging with him and made his day even more special!

Hello! While I think that the food was tasty. The waitresses are very nice but maybe understaffed. The food and drinks took a while to come out.
I would still come back and try again, it's just that I would warn whoever is accompanying me that things take a while. Also, it would be okay if things took a while but all of our food was cold.

Have a blessed day!

Nice venue especially outside! Fantastic lime hummus. Stout BBQ wings were great. Habanero was ok but not hot. Sale was great. Flatbread was mediocre … sauce was cheap and flavorless. Beer was very good and good selection. Nitro stout was really good. Service was great. A little overpriced for the quality of food. Need to step up the game on the pizza for sure.

Food was great, but a bit overpriced. The service was incredibly slow, and not very accommodating.

Our party had 3/4 people with hearing disabilities (2 with visible hearing aids). We were seated in the covered outside area. This would have been fine, however, we were seated next to high powered industrial fans. This fan was so loud I could not hear the people at my table nor the staff. Moreover, I my table had to yell in order for the staff to hear us. The waitress gave us an attitude when she could not hear us as if it were our fault. When we asked for a new table, we were denied.

This is not my first negative experience with service at this restaurant. Wait times are regularly slow, even when the restaurant is not busy.

Service was extremely slow....my guest and I were seated for 1 hr before our orders arrived. Extremely noisy! Several golfing parties were in attendance and made more noise than a locker room of teenage boys! Not acceptable conduct for grown men who were hollering at several tv screens. Our server was polite as the usual; and she apologized twice for the lateness of our orders. I have enjoyed your weekend brunch menu more than a few times and this was the only time I regretted not going elsewhere.

The food was good but a bit over priced. The service was horrible. The waitress tried to add an addition tip to the bill for our party of 7, even tho they say they only do it for parties of 10 at 18%. The waitress/bartender Irene added 20% and said it was up to her discretion. The manager came over and apologized and adjusted the final bill and confirmed they only add tip on parties of 10 or more and for 18%. Service was already poor. She didn’t come to check on the food. Clear the tables properly etc.

I have eaten at Nest many times, but. Flies. OMG. Started outside on the covered patio, came inside, and there were still tons of flies. Was planning on a long dinner, had cocktails and left. Other patrons took their food to go it was so bad. Isn't this a sanitary/health issue? Come on Nest, you can do better.

We sat outside for brunch. Perhaps they were understaffed because it took quite a while for our server to come to us. Once she arrived she was very personable and attentive. The food was good and flavorful but my husband’s was over salted and mine under salted. There were unfortunately many flies wanting to keep us company. A small fan was provided for a table near us which seemed like a good idea to get the air moving and discourage the flies, but our waitress said they only had a handful and all were spoken for. It’d be an excellent addition to every outdoor table. The setting, right by the golf course, was beautiful.

Service was horrible. We waited more than 20 mins from 10:51 to 11:14 for someone to come to the table with menus and water. It was hot and there were no fans for outdoor seating guests. Lastly, the flies were in full affect. Not happy at all.

The server was delightful and answered all of our questions, service was great. Food was delicious. Originally our reservations were for the outdoor patio but we were immediately, without having to ask, moved inside when it started to sprinkle. Timing was perfect as once we got inside, the downpour started.
