There are several words I can drum up to describe the sprawling 18,000-square-foot Toby Keith's Bar & Grill of Newport News, but I will settle for just one: CLOSED. It was, and I mean this as someone who loves country bars, objectively terrible. As other...More

We did gon there several times, and the food was good but not great. I think the issue was the place was so huge, it would never feel full.It was kind of the size of Gilleys in Texas but didn't have the country following.

Toby Keith's was a very large country bar, in fact, huge inside. Never had near enough people to fill it which made it seem more empty. Business closed 1-1-2015.

We had ordered 2 burgers that were ok at best. One burger had two bites and it was decided it was just nasty. The chili was almost room temperature. However the steak that was ordered seemed to be the only meal that was worth finishing.

We got there. Receptionist sat us. No one else there. Waitress came over and right away said... we are out of basically everything. No burgers. Steaks. Seafood. Potato. On and on. We left! What the heck!
