A city in the south means al fresco seating galore! With Norfolk having an abundance of outdoor patios from Downtown to Ocean View, let this guide be your starting point on where to go! Cuisine found at our patio dining rooms range from authentic Mexican, fresh seafood from the Chesapeake Bay, southern BBQ to acai bowls and true Asian cuisine-  there's truly something for everyone! 

We encourage patrons to follow current federal and state health guidelines and support local businesses at their own personal comfort levels.



Sail shades decorate Toast’s ever-growing garden, giving you the perfect Instagramable shot! Not only is their environment pretty, but so is the food! Grab a bite to eat here but make sure to check out their live music and cocktails on the weekends!
