Good stuff.

Pickle chips are delicious and properly salted. Chicken noodle soup is bland The noodles are not homemade and fluffy they are from a package and flat. Chicken fried steak was well-prepared although a little bland and under spiced.

We visited the Nook for breakfast. It's a diner with good food and a nice outdoor eating location on the pedestrian mall in downtown Charlottesville. I had bacon and sweet potato hash - both very good. I think they're open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Food was delicious and they had a wonderful variety of burgers, steaks and salads. The outdoor atmosphere under the trees on the Sunday morning was a treat. It was not noisy and fun to watch people as they were walking by.

Located in he Pedestrian Mall. The food was great. I like the decor and the service was great. It is a little pricey but consider it fair because everything was so good. There is outside seating for the nice weather days.

Ok, Crab cakes are pricier than most of the mains on the menu. You have to try them. $18.95 for two of the best in the city. Fries and slaw come with it, but they are agreeable to switch and I got their chunky in house mashed potatoes. Tempted by desserts, but just too full. They are part of the... More

I am visiting from Germany and we have that in Europe and I know it is uncommon in the US and I love that and I never had that in the US before. Delicious! The service was very... More

An eclectic assortment of menu items with a great variety of macaroni and cheese selections. Quick service and centrally located surrounded by shops and entertainment. Two the thumbs up to the wait staff who were able to juggle a kids party in front and everything else going on in the back.

I drop into the "Nook" for lunch about 4-6 times a year and I can always count on a decent, affordable & quick meal. When the weather is good I'll sit outside. I recently returned and experienced that great consistency yet again. The food is not spectacular nor is the service but it's never bad. I wouldn't take someone to... More

We chose to eat outside in pedestrian mall area as it was such a lovely day. The staff were very casual and pleasant and our lunches were delicious.

Great breakfast. The biscuits and gravy were so good...I kept stealing bites from my boyfriend. Loved the blueberry pancakes. Try to get seating outside.
