My wife and I have always enjoyed the environment at Belmont and loved the delicious food. So when it came time for catering for our ten year wedding anniversary gathering, we immediately thought of the Belmont. We contacted Jen the catering manager and she worked with us to select a great buffet at an affordable price. We decided on pulled... More

First time visiting this establishment and I was really happy we stopped here. The menu is varied and has something for everyone. Our waitress (Audra ?) was attentive and helpful with any question we had. Started with the Tobacco Onion Rings from the Appetizer section and they were addictive and delicious. The Build Your Own combo is terrific for sharing.... More

Stopped by here in the middle of a chilly rainy afternoon--about the only patron in the place! I ordered the combo with bbq chicken, bbq pork, and home-smoked bacon. One of several sides came with the meal, and I selected the collards hesitantly. The meal also came with creamy coleslaw. A side that was offered for a modest premium was... More

One of the few restaurants in the area that lives up to the hype. Their bbq is consistent as well as their sides. Seating is nice upstairs, downstairs and outside. The staff is always nice and attentive. Anything you ask for, they will make it happen. This is one of my "go to" restaurants in Norfolk because I know that... More

Been here many times under different names but always popular with locals. Almost cozy and lively. Weekly specials draw huge crowds but early dining avoids lines. Baked in BarBQ flavor plus a choice of several sauces. Has dining in two floors plus a open air deck on second level. Really tasty collards. Savory chicken. Okay crab cakes.

We called in advance as we had about a dozen in VA Beach for small college XC nationals. Our group was able to enjoy a broad range of BBQ and other options, much to the delight of the group making this trip. The ribs were great; the service was quick and we were in and out rather quickly. We'll probably... More

What a great place to enjoy a drink and good food. The servers were very attentive and the food came out quick and it was hot. The burnt ends were great and the rest of the food was excellent. There is a variety of beers and drinks available. A nice place to enjoy great eats and a good time out.

Met up with a group of friends here for lunch. I had the grilled Brussel sprouts with bacon and Tuna bites. Both were served with sauces and were good! One of my friends had the pulled pork and said it was great! Can't wait to go back and take my husband!

I went with a full rack of ribs, fries, and Mac n cheese. I am no rib connoisseur but they did not come off the bone very easily. In fact, they were kind of dry. The fries and Mac n cheese were great! Atmosphere was nice for Sunday Game day.
