We started coming to Stove back in 2011 and have been enjoying this small, Southern gourmet fine dining bistro ever since. It's tucked in a small artsy neighborhood of Port Norfolk. Syd the owner puts together creative flavors procured from many local area farms. There...More

Can't say enough about Stove. From the artisan bread and peppered butter, to the shrimp and grits...everything was delicious. The relish on the cheese plate was my favorite, so much that I ordered a pound of it to go. Will definitely visit again.

Fair food. Eclectic decor. Too crowded. Not much ambiance.Too much pork dishes. Did not have a memorable evening.

We really had high expectations as we had heard and read so much about Stove. It has very quirky, interesting decor, and is a very small place. Being able to choose different types of cheese as an appetizer was neat--and the cheese was delicious, as...More

Had heard of it, my boyfriend saw a Groupon for it. So we tried it. I do enjoy a quirky environment. I also appreciate farm to table dining. However, for the actual prices of this place to make sense...I would need for it to be...More

It is delicious, moist, flavorful, tender....I guess the cut is pretty much bacon, but they cure much of that stuff in house, so it is special!
