Wait staff: Very attentive and friendly!
Food: Amazing! This is the only place in Hampton Roads where their $7 fried mozzarella appetizer could double as a meal and they are the best mozzarella i have ever had.
They have both drink and food specials for each day of the week and for $2 Taco Tuesdays there is no one who can compete with Tubbys Tavern.
Bar: Excellent assortment of both spirits and local craft brews as well as foreign and domestic beers.
Our family will forever be patrons of Tubby's Tavern and we recommend that you drop in for a bite or a drink!
If you drink, skip my review.
If you don’t drink, you would want to avoid this place.
We were visiting the area for a quick weekend getaway. We had dinner here thanksgiving day. Most everything else were closed.
We probably won’t come here again.
1- The menu was cluttered.
2- The bar was prominent in the place. We don’t drink, so the heavy alcohol smell was a bit annoying.
3- The waiter was acting like she’s forced to be here and annoyed to be waiting on us.
Me and my friend shared their tavern burger and their thanksgiving turkey sandwich special.
I highly doubt the burger was fresh. I ordered a medium cook, and it tested like a well done burger.
The turkey sandwich, on the other hand, was good. I’ve never had something like it before. Not something I will crave, but I would choose it over their burger next time I’m forced to be here *knock on wood*
I frequent this place pretty often. Every time I have been, up until today, was great. I recommended this place to my coworkers based off of my previous experiences. We were highly disappointed. Do not order the lobster roll dinner; you will be left hungry. I ordered the 2 lobster rolls, thinking it would be enough for 2 people; wrong. $23 and I am still hungry. Barely any fries. One of my coworkers ordered his fries with cheese; no cheese and barely any fries. Another coworker ordered his chicken wrap with ranch; no ranch. Probably won't be back.
The 5 stars are solely related to service. Food and management has taken a complete nosedive in the last few months and despite repeated conversations with regulars it continues. The staff is awesome but they can’t deliver products that are not available or make up for subpar management. Being service industry myself I hate to leave negative reviews but honestly the staff here deserves so much better. They are left in the position of constantly apologizing for things beyond their control and they go out of their way to try and make up for management and ownership shortcomings. Six months ago this would have been a glowing review, I hate that it is not, I truly love this place for what it was and the amazing staff. Come in, meet them and follow them wherever they go, you won’t be sorry.
Just ordered food from this place after hearing good things and I am so disappointed I wont ever give it a second chance. Not only did they totally screw up the order but the food is cold! This place isn't worth your money, get food literally anywhere else. ordered two chicken sandwiches and they sent me one chicken sandwich and an order of chicken tenders! minimum wage exists for a reason!!!!!!
