Something new on a Saturday night. I had read the reviews but sometimes you just have to see for yourself. Oyster Rockefeller for app was the freshest ever. With lemon juice squeezed over top the spinach popped. I would add just a touch more bacon. Our entrée was the Salmon Oscar dinner special and it was special. Again fresh and... More

After reading the most recent reviews on Tripadvisior, we were a little apprehensive about our visit. We were using a soon to expire Groupon, so we visited on a Friday evening. Their website indicated they were open at 4:00, but when we arrived shortly after 5:00, we saw a sign on the door that said dinner started at 5:30. The... More

While visiting Virginia Beach I had the occasion to try out the Five 01 City Grill. It was early when we arrived so it was not hard to find a table. The hostess was also our waitress so she took our beverage order right away. We placed our entree orders and the food was very tasty. I had the Shrimp... More

Food is average! Service is great! price that's listed online vs when we dine in was different, we paid for an appetizer $20 but listed online $18. Overall looking at the menu it's overpriced for average food.

After almost 20 years of patronage of 501 City Grill...it's time for a change. The tired and run down decor has created an atmosphere not conducive to quality dining, but more like just another local hangout on its last leg. Service was horrible and without personality. Our favorite Michelob Shrimp was ok but not "The Famous" anymore. To many other... More

Went for dinner one night and drinks another. Dinner evening was ok, nothing great but our server! Food was decently priced if the food would have been better. Just bland and nothing special. Went for cocktails one evening... Again, cocktail waitress was the same girl with the great necklace. She was wonderful.Ordered martinis. The bartender did not make good drinks,... More

I have been to five 01 grill many times and I have never had such a bad experience here or in any restaurant for that matter. They were obviously understaffed which I can sympathize with but our server was very slow and just casually walking around the place as if she had the time in the world. We didn't get... More

Nice casual dining in a relaxed setting on the restaurant side. The bar side is popular and noisy with tv's and music. Best of both world's I'd say, depending on your mood. We sat on the restaurant side. Tuna tacos were very good as was the petite sirloin special. No room for dessert. Part of the kitchen is open to... More

There were 6 people in our group. The waitress brought out TWO menus? This menu consisted of a few drinks? We asked for more menus and she brought out ONE more that was a DIFFERENT menu of drinks? Then, she brought out ANOTHER menu of drinks?? All three were different with NO prices?? On one of these menus, we discovered... More

The title says it all, what else do you need? We enjoyed some great local brews, and had wings and pizza while sitting at the bar. I'm awfully picky about wings and they were cooked as ordered (extra grilled!). The wood fired pizza was delicious (BBQ chicken pizza) and I am looking forward to trying out the rest of the... More
