A surprising find in a small, older city

I would suggest arriving early as by the time we left seats were hard to find. The food was good. Our server was much too busy with too many table to cover but we were not in a rush so it didn't matter much. It is good to see that some restaurants of this type still exist. It was a... read more

The food is wonderful and reasonably priced. Everyone is friendly. The restaurant is located at the heart of Roanoke Avenue.

Stopped by on Halloween night. We were the only ones in the restaurant for most of the time we were there. Service was very good. Food was good although somewhat unremarkable. We both had fish - huge portions. Prices are very reasonable. Seems to be a very local spot.

I was invited to go to lunch at Davids last Sunday. They have a terrific brunch with numerous delicious dishes. Pork tenderloin with dressing and gravy, crispy fried chicken and numerous vegetables. There was a great salad bar and dessert bar. Key lime cheese cake, apple cobbler, chocolate chess pie, ice cream and hot fudge. A very enjoyable and delicious... More

I had a business gathering at Davids Restaurant on Roanoke Ave, in Roanoke Rapids. The prices we're WAY TOO EXPENSIVE, AND THE OWNER "David" was very rude to his staff. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for Proper etiquettes either!

While driving to Florida from NY we spent the night in Roanoke Rapids . We found several good review's for David's table and decided to give it a try . We were not disappointed . A small storefront entrance gave way to a large " living room " type dining room that had a cozy feel to it. We decided... More

What a great surprise. Having traveled some 5 hours and needing a good drink and pleasant meal, we asked Google for the Best restaurant in Roanoke Rapids and David's came up. So off we went. Even though the drive was about 15 minutes it was worth the trip. Perhaps the trip is shorter if you know how to go. The... More

Unexpected find on main street of town that featured a varied menu. The photo lined dining area was old time and the wait staff was attentive and friendly. We has a good quality filet of beef with baked potato and a veal shrimp with sauteed spinach. Meals were served with a large fresh made salad. Desserts are available. Meal for... More
