Freemason Abbey Restaurant is a popular dining destination before or after graduations from ODU, EVMS, Norfolk State, Regent University, as well as graduations held at the Ted Constant Center. Our elegant yet casual atmosphere is ideal for family graduation celebrations. Our staff is eager to make your celebration a memorable occasion.
Graduation reservations are taken for lunch or dinner parties up to 12 people. Your guests will be seated together and due to the fact that Freemason Abbey does not have any private dining rooms, the rest of the restaurant will be open to the public.
We are sorry but we do not allow any personal food or beverage items to be brought into the restaurant. This includes all celebration desserts and cakes. Special arrangements can be made ahead should you wish to bring your own dessert, in which case a $2.00 per person dessert fee will be charged.
If your guests are responsible for paying their own bill we are happy to provide separate checks. However, we ask for your patience because multiple payments take extra time at the end of the meal.
Be advised that Freemason Abbey has very limited space for standing or mingling. We require groups to be seated in the dining room at their tables and receive service from their servers. Groups are not allowed to stand or linger in walk-ways.
We allow guests to arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to their reservation to decorate the space. We do NOT allow the following decorations: linens, tablecloths, table runners, seat covers, candles, glitter or confetti.
Planning for your event is simple. We do it everyday at The Abbey. We are in this business to give you wonderful memories. Please call 757.622.3966 if you have any questions.
