The Best Restaurants in Newport News, VA

Published: November 13, 2013

This list is a compilation of what I believe to be the best restaurants in Newport News, VA. The restaurants that made this list did so becasue they either have great food, good prices, great atmosphere, or all of the above. 

  1. Cheddars

    Cheddars is a small chain with one location in Hampton Roads. They serve American Cuisine and have absolutely wonderful prices. The service is good and the food is excellent. Some of my favorites: Spinach Dip (Appetizer), Baked Potato Soup and the Croissants.

  2. The Melting Pot

    While The Meling Pot isn't known as a cheap place to eat, it is delicious. The Melting Pot serves all things fondu and it is DELICIOUS. If you are purchasing the main meal, look to spend about $30 a person, but know you'll be there for a couple of hours and leave stuffed. The meal includes a salad, cheese fondu with dippers, entree fondu with dippers (chicken, shrimp, beef etc), and dessert fondu with dippers (brownie, cake, strawberries etc)

  3. Smoke

    If you are looking for a venue that is a little more relaxed this is it. Smoke serves great BBQ, pulled pork, Briscuit etc and for great prices. It's not quite a bar but is a little louder and more relaxed than some restaurants. 


The best restauarant completely depends on what you are in the mood for. I like all three but probably go to Cheddars the most becasue it offers such a huge variety for such great prices. THe melting pot is my second choice, but only for special occasions.
