So, for a guy who had been accustomed to Manhattan steak houses for decades this ain't great shakes. But the place was packed on Saturday night, the decibel level was high and folks were having a great time. The steaks were much thinner than I was accustomed to but they were flavor able. The salad bar is pretty miserable, the... More

Went to eat here because everyone said how good it was. Steak was awesome but for the price I paid I would have liked to stayed seated for my entire meal. Had to get up and make my own salad where everyone else had been picking through. Not sanitary, it's like a buffet! Don't think I will go back.

Everything was excellent. The steaks were cooked to perfection. You must try the hash browns all the way with onions, green peppers, and cheese. All you can eat soup and salad bar with your meal. Wonderful service.

Those who have been in the area a while have fond memories of Wagstaffs and consider it the “nice” place to go. And for the price, you can’t complain. Just understand that you are not paying the equivalent of a quality steak house. Wagstaffs really is a contrast in different parts of the meal. Pluses: Friendly service. The steaks are... More

We have always enjoyed the food here......the salad bar is fresh and the soup is homemade...soo good. The steaks are cooked to perfection. Yes, the decor needs an update. Also, the wine selection definitely needs to be improved. Needs a selection of Virginia wines. It is enjoyable evening.

Steaks are cooked to perfection over a charcoal grill, homemade vegetable soup, wonderful selection of vegetables & fruit on salad bar. Only negative was pricey mixed drink. A great restaurant for any special occasion.

I went to Wagstaff for the first time after hearing members of my family raving about it for years. I am always eager to support a local place and was very impressed with the food. As noted the decor could use some tweaking but the staff is friendly and attentive and the food is excellent.

My husband grew up in Colonial Heights and has never been to Wagstaffs. We had actually planned to go to another restaurant but I suggested we try them out. I called ahead to check the dress code (casual) and from the moment the phone was answered I knew we had made a good choice. We were greeted and seated immediately... More

Wagstaff's has been in Colonial Heights a long time and I sense it's a local favorite. It's nice enough to have white tablecloths instead of the usual western-themed wood planked tables. The waitstaff--I think they actually wore black neckties--sound refined and polite, and they'll show you the cuts of meat, as if most of us can tell what is what.... More

We were a family of six with two small children. The kids had a blast playing in the fountain spray. With the salad bar at the ready( especially with the fruit ) the children were easily entertained. The food was delicious quick and hot. Their desserts are also worth saving room
