When someone's getting all up in your grill, the best thing to say is "You better step off! The surface temperature of grills can approach 550 degrees Fahrenheit—you shouldn't be standing on that thing!" Today's Groupon demonstrates a high regard for safety by leaving the grilling to the professionals: for $15, you get $30 worth of grill fare and drinks at Five 01 City Grill, located near the Virginia Beach oceanfront on Birdneck Road.
Five 01's plush couches and cozy fireplace are an eloquent preamble to the restaurant's luscious menu of classic American grill fare. Catch a glimpse of chefs at work in the open kitchen while you snack on Five 01's famous Michelob shrimp ($18 for a dozen; $10 for a half-dozen). Then lend your appetite's ears to a sumptuous entree such as Cajun bourbon penne served with shrimp, scallops, and andouille sausage ($20) or an 8-ounce butcher's cut filet mignon ($26). Various pizzas and flatbreads deliver flavors fresh from the restaurant's lignivorous oven, and a fine selection of wines ensures that throats will never thirst in vain for vino.
- They have great nightly specials, and a great Ladies night on Thrusdays [sic] for $5 martini's and $5 manicures over on their Bar side – Crescent75, TripAdvisor
- 501 is a great spot to have dinner then stay for drinks afterwards. They have a large bar with seating, then they also have a separate dining area. – Ellen D., Yelp
