I really hate it when I waste calories on bad food. The photos are totally misleading. Not a thing was fresh. Everything was food service bulk from a bag or can. Can't imagine why anyone would like this place.

Was searching for a good, local breakfast venue a few days ago. Found this restaurant on a web search. Got there around 11:15 A.M. just prior to the "business folks" lunch hour....this diner is adjacent to the downtown business area of Norfolk and consequently, gets a good deal of activity during the lunch period. However, the staff are well managed... More

Real good food and fast service. We had lunch here and ordered a variety of menu items. I had the fish sandwich with homemade chips, my daughter had a grilled chicken salad, her friend had a chicken sandwich and my husband had chicken tenders. We all enjoyed our meals and would definitely recommend this diner.

Finally got to this place after going by it a hundred times. It is actually very nice and much bigger than it looks from the outside. Problem is, it caters to the people in the high rises downtown and is only open 6:30 AM -#PM Mon-Fri. I rearranged my morning to get there right after they opened and it was... More

Great American Cuisine in downtown Norfolk. Located right across the street from the City Hall Light Rail stop and the courthouse, this place offers well prepared meals at very reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit.

I discovered this gem while serving jury duty. Very fast service, great food, reasonable prices, and a great variety. Their club sandwich was delicious and fresh, the homemade chicken salad is awesome, burgers are great, soup is freshly made, as our the salads. Open only for breakfast and lunch as they close at 3 and not open on weekends.

I rode passed this dinner on my way out of town, looked cute on the outside so I parked in the local garage and walked a little way to get there. I was hoping there would be a WIFI connection but no such luck. Seemed like with their location in the business district, that would be a standard in 2015.... More

Went here for lunch while I was on a business trip in downtown Norfolk. It was a busy, busy place at the noon hour. It seem many of the local government workers walk here for their noon meal. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich. The food was great and price reasonable. Was delivered to my table quicker than I expected... More
