Good but REALLY expensive

This place is big and beautiful with a very lively atmosphere The menu is traditional BBQ with several craft beers on tap. The food is all very messy (in a good way ) and quite spicy. Unfortunately they were playing loud rap music instead of the traditional " blues". This place is great but really... read more

Fried chicken and mashed potato, brisket and vegetables, popcorn shrimp one glass of wine and one beer cost USD 145. The fried chicken and mash potato was not as good as KFC!

Had such better food and service elsewhere. Was taken by surprise by the horrible service... Like our waitress hated us and just being there, totally not up to Atlantis standards. Complete unimpressed with the food... Sorry, nothing good to say about Virgil's .

We at Virgil's two years and the portions were huge for the money. This time not so much. I ordered grilled shrimp for dinner and was told it was 4 skewers but my plate arrived with 2 skewers with 4 small shrimp on each... $32.. RIP OFF! Another $10 for side of delicious Mac n Cheese. Next day ate at... More

Just a disappointment. Ordered popcorn shrimp, it was 80% left over movie popcorn with maybe 8 tiny shrimp, all for 19$. Brought the wrong drinks over then didn't understand the difference between a rose and red wine.... Got the riblets, they taste good but portion was tiny for the amount paid. Don't bother, go to the fish fry or anywhere... More

We loved it here, ate here twice during our stay. The 2nd time we waited over 20 minutes for a server to even acknowledge us, guess that's what happens when automatic gratuity is included in EVERYTHING! The food was great though so we didn't care.

This is a beautiful and spacious restaurant with gracious staff. They quickly were able to seat our party of 15. However, the prices are over the top; servings are stingy and the food is less than one would expect. I ordered catfish for $30 and got 3 filets with no sides.

Disappointed with Virgil's. The food was served warm and there was nothing special about the taste or presentation. I won't eat at Virgil's my next trip.
