We’re known for more than quality boutiques and specialty stores. You could come every night of the week and enjoy something different.

Perfect Dishes for Date Night
The Shops At Hilltop features many bars and restaurants that enhance the vibrant nightlife in Virginia Beach. When you want to impress your significant other with a cozy dinner for two or a fun night out in a lively atmosphere, your only concern is choosing from our many options:
Baker’s Crust is a name folks in Virginia Beach have known for almost fifteen years, one that evokes images of freshly baked bread for their signature sandwiches (all of which are great with their tomato cheese soup). These days you can also enjoy savory Neopolitan pizzas, street tacos or hamburgers with a local craft beer. Save room to split a dessert crepe filled with flambeed bananas or strawberries with whipped cream.
At Cobalt Grille you’ll enjoy an intimate environment for lunch or dinner with an ever-changing menu to suit the season. Sip a Cobalt Cosmo while you feast on specialties like maple duck breast, rack of lamb, or seafood risotto. If your appetite’s not that big, you can make a meal of Cobalt’s many mouth-watering appetizers and salads (they had us at the calamari).
For a unique experience with friends or family, an office outing or other special occasion, the Melting Pot is a great place to savor good food and create memories. If you’ve never tried fondue before or can wield a fondue fork like a pro, the waitstaff can guide you through a multi-course meal that includes a variety of breads and artisan meats for cheese fondue, meat and seafood for the main course, and a delicious liquid chocolate finisher.
