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.

I was in town on business and ate here based on a recommendation. I liked that it's a small, local restaurant as opposed to the many big chains in this area, and the building itself is interesting. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, and the wine list has a good selection. Like others have mentioned, I loved the sides... More

Visiting friends near Richmond brought us to Wagstaff's in late August. We were fortunate to sit near a window with a view of the little waterfall from a nearby creek which was quite pleasant. To begin, they will come to your table when ordering to allow you to view the beef available for dinner - a nice touch. Then after... More

I wanted to eat at Wagstaff's because I was in the mood for steak and we had not eaten at there in a long while. We were one of two couples in the restaurant and, after a slow start to order our food, got a lot of attention to keep our drinks filled. I love salad bars and theirs is... More

We're visiting the Richmond area and the hotel suggested Wagstaff's. I'm glad we went. This is not "fine dining", it is a nice, casual evening of food with a very service oriented staff. The salad bar could be better as mentioned in other reviews and the soup and steak were very good. You get a lot of food for a... More

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.
