Venerable former church sanctuary serving delicious food with excellent service at reasonable prices in a quaint Ghent neighborhood.
Largely Continental fare with additional delightful nightly specialities. A great wine list, lovely drinks and convivial atmosphere make for a pleasant dining atmosphere for discerning adults.
Cheers!

Located in Norfolk, a few blocks from downtown and from Nautilus. This is an impressive restaurant with great food and an interesting ambiance. Great for solo, friends or small groups, it is fun to sit and look around. Not priced too high, you get your monies worth. Light or full meals, sandwiches or desserts. A great place to eat.

I eat at Freemason Abbey fairly frequently and have never had a bad meal there. The she crab soup is wonderful and the Salmon Oscar at lunch is delicious. The servers are always friendly and well informed. Go upstairs if you can, it's nice to look out over the balcony at this historic building.

My wife and I had a very relaxing diner. I started with the she crab soup which this version made my top five. I had a 10oz rib-eye with smashed potato and vegs and finished it off with a cappuccino cream pie. She started with onion soup and had salmon, rice and vegs. She finished with a bread pudding. Our Server Josh was attentive and we really enjoyed our meal that didn't break the bank.
