I was in NC for a family reunion last summer. We had dinner and breakfast at David's restaurant and it was fabulous. We had about 80 people and things ran very smoothy. The owner and staff are wonderful. The nicest group of folks I've met in along time. The customer service was the best I have had the pleasant to... More

A pleasant dinner stop if you are traversing I-95 can be found in Roanoke Rapids. The small downtown is vintage 50'//60's and David's is located in a brick store front with parking on the street. The clientele is locals and the decor is southern comfort with a mix of nice tables and intimate booths. The noise level is minimum and... More

Roanoke Rapids is not known as a foodie town, and 98% of the dining establishments in town are either fast food franchises or casual dining franchises. David's is a refreshing change from the franchise routine. Food is fresh, well prepared, and there is always an item or two on the menu that is creative. The atmosphere is cozy and the... More

Passing through stopped for the night. Read the reviews and just knew this was going to be the "local" restaurant we were looking for. Wrong! We went during the week and the food was awful and not fresh. Armature chef at best. Our waitress was nice, we asked for just the one meal to be comped since it was inedible.... More

Very nice restaurant, very clean and nice atmosphere. Food was very good at a decent price. The entertainment was a little too close tour table. Service was above average but not super. Good menu. We will try it again.

Appetizer was french onion soup for me snd fried oysters for my husband...the best. If you ard in the Roanoke Rapids area....you must eat at... More

We were delighted by our dinner last night at David's. The service was terrific, and most attentive. The food was delicious, and the menu offered many choices. We highly recommend this charming restaurant.

We were staying just off I 95 and had seen this restaurant reviewed in Trip Advisor. The place is a little "dated" but don't let that put you off! The food is excellent. There is a menu offering many selections and service was very good. There was even entertainment - a great saxophone player who played a wide variety of... More

David's is a little bit from the interstate. But so worth the trip. Our food was so so good. The steak was cooked just right and the shrimp was perfect. I got steamed veggies and the were also steamed wonderfully. The price was in line with most nicer restaurants. We got an appetizer and two main dishes. Price was $41.... More

We went to David's based on general description. As we approached we saw how shabby the main street in Roanoke Rapids was which caused some trepidation but decided to be game anyway. Boy, are we glad we did! We were welcomed by a delightful octogenarian named Mabel, who delighted in her job as hostess and a saxaphonist playing period music... More
