This place was one of my favorites under the previous ownership even though they never had a huge crowd. I have recently been there several times to give it a try, and something is definitely missing. Under the current ownership, they have a different chef/cook and in my view the food is just not nearly as good, and the prices... More

Just wanted people to know that the restaurant has reopened in a new incarnation. Folks seem to like it.

Last day was last month. Owners said they had to close due to health of one of the owners. Hopefully someone will open soon with a similar atmosphere and food.

If you are a beer connoisseur, you will love this place! I don't drink so I am happy to report they have a good selection of soft drinks available too. I have always liked places that have a neighborhood feel to them. Seeing as today was National Cheeseburger Day, I was in search of a outstanding example and I found... More

During my second visit, I tried the Reuben Sandwich and it was very good. Very greasy, too, but that's why napkins were invented. Slaw was very good, and the service and staff were friendly and made sure all was well. I hope to visit here again, but do have to explore to find food that is not quite so greasy... More

Hilton Tavern is an absolute gem. Just about everything is house made (Salad dressings, Smoked Wings, sauces). Having traveled the south extensively and being a bit of a bbq snob, I don't make comments on BBQ without some serious thought. Hilton Tavern knows what they are doing. I spent the last year eating just about every BBQ joint here and... More

We tried the Hilton Tavern for the first time tonight. Our waitress Amy was friendly & attentive. We had the chicken salad sandwich and turkey sandwich. Both were very good. The chocolate cake was also good. We'll definitely be back to try more from the extensive menu and to check out the entertainment.

Excellent beer selection. Good variety of taps and over a hundred bottles. The menu has expanded in the last year to included smoked and barbecued meats and some homemade sauces. The food is usually tasty. Chicken is good. Brisket is good sometimes, sometimes it's a little dry. The service is often excellent sometimes average and a couple of times, just... More

The food is excellent! Been here many time for lunch. The owner is friendly and will usually stopby to say hello. The beer menu is extensive and written in chalk on the wall. Look for the specials posted in the front window too. Must go to in Newport News!

This is the sort of place you kind of have to know is there, as you would not realize it was anything special, which it is, from the road. Their homemade BBQ is fantastic - not greasy, with a great combination of spices. The owner has a smoker out back. Can also recommend the brisket and key lime pie. Interior... More
