I checked this place out on a lead that they carried a good selection of a local brewery (O'connor Brewing) and I want to try some of their beers. Located in the Ghent district of Norfolk, it's a little tough to spot but once you know where it is you are hooked. Raw bar and regular seating as well as a great bar scene this place was great. Very relaxing and inviting staff I spent a few hours enjoying good conversation, good food and great beer. Their selection was amazing. Tons of craft brews in the bottle and a great tap selection. In fact the only non craft beer on tap was bud light. All the others were either from the local brewery or from other craft brewers. Great prices and good food selection I would definately recommend you check this one out.

A small, somewhat cramped and hidden place in Ghent but the locals know it and that's all that counts. Owned by same people who own Tortilla West so prices are same and that goes w/ selection, although Tortilla West seems to have a few more options. The server screwed my food order up but at least she got them to make a new one on the fly and apologized - at least she admitted her error. For quality of food and portion it's a little steep but guess that's a judgment call. As for the beer itself, they rotate some of the bottles they get in so you can find a seasonal/new release (for a price) but mostly the list is basic beer bar fare and is somewhat stagnant. Had a lot of people for the ODU hoops game, though.

Awesome Place on the edge of Ghent.
Servers are always nice and knowledgable about the beers that they have. They usually have a few microbrews on tap. Recently they have consistently had Legend Brown, O'Conner's Red Nun and Green Can, and Bell's 2Hearted Ale.
Food is always exceptional, highly recommend the meatloaf, hushpuppies, mac and cheese, and pretty much everything else on the menu. Daily Catch specials are always delicious and new, with Soup of the Day always a warm addition to any meal.
Open from 11am to 1:30am everyday. Sunday from 11am to 4pm is a brunch, but the regular menu is also served.
