Uassuming from the outside. Inside more under whelming. It's a bar. Pool tables. Tv's. Really nice people though. Then the food comes. Magical. Great portions. Reasonable price. Fantastic service. Remember this bar is in the reawakening Phoebus. A neighborhood of Hampton Va. Must try.

When my family and I first walked in, we should have ran. Something told me to give it a chance. The bare and desolate dining area should have been the first sign. The tables and chairs were randomly placed throughout the restaurant. First issue... Next...More
