Enjoyed the steak. Love picking from the Rib Eye or New York Strip table side. Service was excellent. Only drawback was the lettuce on the salad bar. Not a big fan of the shredded type. Still, I will definitely return.

Nothing special. Overpriced for no reason. Pretty view. Better off going to Texas roadhouse. Service was also bad

As the name suggests Wagstaff's specialty is steak. A server will bring selections to your table and let you pick. They will cut and cook however you like. My steak was cooked medium rare to perfection. Wagstaff's has a soup and salad bar. The only thing I saw that could be improved upon would be the fruit at the salad... More

Wagstaff prepares some really great steak meals. I have never been disappointed when dinning there. It is a bit on the pricey side, but the meal, the service and the dining area is worth the price. Great place for special dinners.

Went with wife and her sister for dinner. I had a 16 oz Ribeye which was excellent. The ladies each had a filet special. My steak was cooked excellent but the ladies filet were undercooked as they had ordered medium. The salad bar is ok. Just real simple and basic. They really need to make it special for $12.00 as...

Excellent New Years Eve Dinner. We had the steak and shrimp special and a Ribeye dinner. Both excellent. The meat selection is superb. Though filled to capacity the flow of orders and service was excellent. Good choice for steak dinner!

I find places like this a bit over-rated, but it seems to be a very popular place. Always busy on Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays. Basically two steak menus. A chef comes to your table with the meat cart and you get to select your steak and the cut you want. The second is, well, the cheaper, pre-cut New York... More

Have heard about this restaurant and been wanting to give it a try. The experience was a walk back into time, I'd guess the early 70's. The carpeting, wood paneling and salad bar set up most likely haven't changed in 40 years. Judging from the customers in their 70's & 80's that's just fine with them. We were seated near... More

Wagstaff's is a gem. One of the few family owned and operated restaurants in Colonial Heights. Steaks are aged and cooked to perfection. Soups are home made and always delicious. Service here is always top notch. This is, without doubt, the best place to dine in Tri Cities area.
