Unparalleled Hospitality and Superior Quality of Food/Beverages
While other restaurants in our area claim to have good food and service, we believe good isn’t good enough. In fact, we believe the level of hospitality and quality of food and beverages we provide each of our guests is far superior to ANY other restaurant in our area. Unparalleled means “no one does it better,” and we will do what it takes to treat every guest as if they were a king or queen.
NO Microwaves or Fryers in Our Restaurant
To the best of our knowledge, we are the only restaurant in the entire Hampton Roads, VA area that does not have any microwaves or fryers in the entire restaurant. All of our cooking is accomplished using our 600+ degree open flame Fire Deck oven and our grill/oven range.
Self-Service Wine Station
We were the first restaurant in the Hampton Roads, VA area that offers guests the opportunity to pour their own wine from our 24 bottle self-service wine station. Guests can choose from three different pour levels including, Taste (1.5 oz.), ½ Glass (3 oz.), and Glass (6 oz.).
Open Kitchen Concept
Other restaurants claim to have an open kitchen concept. However, the kitchen is usually located in the rear of the restaurant and can only be seen by those diners seated near the rear of the building. At FIREBREW Bar & Grill, our kitchen is located in the center of the restaurant and is one of our key focal points of our restaurant. Diners seated at nearly any seat in our restaurant can observe our chefs preparing their meals using our Fire Deck oven or grill/range.

"I had their salmon and it was some of the tastiest I’ve ever had. It was cooked perfectly. Our server was also very considerate and kept my tea glass full, something that matters to me at a restaurant!"

Best Restaurant in Virginia Beach
"From the seafood to the burgers to the pizza, there isn’t anything that’s not delicious. The wine and beer menu has a great variety and something for everyone. The atmosphere is friendly and the service is top notch. The owners are always present and making sure every customer is satisfied. I love that you see watch them carefully inspect every plate before it goes out, ensuring you are getting the meal you requested. Our favorite meals are the bronzed salmon and the salmon salad. FIREBREW has quickly become our go to restaurant."
