Visit the historic Phoebus community for a mouthwatering meal or a tasty cocktail (or both!) at Mango Mangeaux. Grab a seat on the patio or upstairs at their popular RoofTOP, and experience a flavor infusion of three distinct cuisines. Mango Mangeaux imbues its one-of-a-kind menu with French cuisine packed with panache; Creole cuisine that doesn’t just satisfy one’s appetite, but brings a celebratory atmosphere to the meal; and NeoSoul cuisine, a modern take on Soul Food favorites, with delicious new spins on traditional recipes that have passed from generation to generation. As delectable as Mango Mangeaux is, there are even more tasty places to explore in Phoebus.

Take the short trip and check out the range of dining opportunities in downtown Hampton. With a big outdoor deck and plenty of space for your tablemates, Marker 20 has been a local favorite for nearly 20 years, thanks to the tasty bar food bites and seafood selection, as well as the giant TVs showing sports, plus live local music. Have an especially big appetite? Brown Chicken Brown Cow boasts grass-fed burgers, chicken, BBQ, and 20 beers on tap, with live local music and patio dining.
