I think is one of the best restaurant I have been to on a long time. The service was excellent. I enjoyed a cheese platter with chips and it was wonderful. The bread is out of this world, real home baked and butter was soft and tasty. I ordered the shrimp and grits, OMG they were so good and filling, I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a great dinner in a cozy atmosphere.

I had the aged steak with sweet potatoes and the steak was severely undercooked and the sweet potatoes were raw!!! I spent nearly $40.00 on the platter for my wife's birthday and was not impressed!!! That is the worst steak and atmosphere I ever paid for...shame on your prices and crappy food!

Cozy little restaurant back in the cut of Portsmouth. It took us a few minutes to get there from Norfolk, but when we arrived we were relieved and pleased. The service was OUTSTANDING! The wine and bar were excellent, we recommend the cheese platter to start. We had our appetizers, entree' and drinks in under an hour no rush no muss. Very homey and pleasant experience overall! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

0 Stars. My date and I are always looking for new and exciting places to enjoy great food, drink, and atmosphere. We stopped by The Stove at around closing time one evening and spoke to two employees while they were conversing on the sidewalk out front. When asked, the help was kind enough to convey the hours of operation and then suggested we "stop in any time, no reservation necessary"... A few nights ago while out on the town, my girlfriend and I decided to stop in for dinner. The façade looks very quaint from the curb and having to hunt for parking down the dark and narrow street gives a sort of exclusive, adventure-some feeling upon arrival. Unfortunately, the first thing I noticed after exiting my vehicle was a severely overgrown bush next to the sidewalk out front that nearly poked me in my eye. We decided to go ahead and venture in, after all, we are still in Portsmouth ("Port Norfolk"). Upon entry, we were immediately greeted by the Bartender with some notable hostility. He asked, rather condescendingly, "do you have a reservation?". When we responded with a "no sir", he came from around the bar and started walking us towards the door as if to shoo us out! He then insisted they had a full evening of reservations and would not be able to fit us in. Taking a quick look around @ ~6:30 pm on a Friday night, I noticed only one couple occupying one table in an otherwise empty house! Though we were appropriately dressed for a casual night of activities, being a spur of the moment decision to dine out, I believe we were shunned for showing up without wearing our "Sunday's best". What is hospitality without the hospitality? I can honestly say that we will not return... even if everything were free. ...really a shame, I thought we had found a nice, local place to enjoy on special occasions.

The food was wonderful, service was great, a little pricey but without drinks and a appetizer it would cost about $25.00 a person


Stove, the restaurant hasn't shared anything with you.
