Famous for their Twist on Southern Cooking

Walk about 3 blocks from our hotel to Virginia's, sparse looking décor with somewhat of a upscale menu. The "she crab soup" and the "pear salad" were prepared correctly and delicious. My husband had the Honey Glazed Creole Quail entree' it was excellent and I had the Jambalaya which was very... read more

We happened to pop in for breakfast. Quite a find! Lots to choose from and delicious. Chef's omelette of the day was fantastic. Portions are large.

The stuffed flounder was fantastic with crab stuffing. We had a great wait staff that directed us to this dish. We were totally pleased. Nice location and easy to find. The menu is varied with seafood, beef, and chicken. You may have a had time deciding. Southern dishes were present but too spicy for us. The re-purposed building had great... More

We had a reservation for 5:15 and were seated promptly. After 12 minutes, no one had even come to get our drink orders or acknowledge our presence. A server came to the table right next to us twice but we were still ignored. We left. The couple seated at the table near us happened to see us after their meal... More

After a day of training was over went to enjoy dinner. Chris offered us nothing but exceptional service. I had the chicken livers, which had great flavor. The squash casserole was so delicious. I'm not able to say this about a lot but the mac and cheese was awesome. I'm a huge fan of mac and cheese , although I... More

Good looking ambience/location, however, ht e taste was.... not very satisfactory. I took Calorina seafood bouillabaisse which I found in their menu the night before. The solids (mussels, scallops, and crams etc) were all nice enough, but the liquid was pretty much saltyandvery little trace of saffron... I expected a lot more of saffron actually. in that sense, solid is... More

We were looking for a casual spot and dropped into Virginia's. I have a poor sense of smell but my wife was turned off by a musty smell. About halfway through our meal a party of 4 showed up for their reservation and refused to be seated and left based on the smell. Regarding the food my crab cakes were... More

I could've made a meal just from the appetizers: The fried pickles and fried okra were perfectly fried and not a bit greasy. The remoulade sauce could not have been better! My husband's jambalaya was seasoned just right. The food is very rich, so be careful that your eyes don't get bigger than your stomach!

Stopped in before work. Got the spinach, bacon, tomato Benedict & biscuit & gravy & mimosa. My server at the bar was Nicholas who was adorable & very attentive. Everything was great. Everything was tasty down to the tomatoes in my Benedict. I'll definitely be back.
