I had been here a couple of times before (about 3 years ago) and had meals that were quite good so, when our first two choices were full on Saturday night, we tried this place (I can't call it a restaurant) again. It was a total embarrassment, particularly as we were entertaining friends from out of town. The place was... More

Went here on Saturday, mid-afternoon looking for some snack food. Place was buzzing with many patrons and friendly staff. All drafts are $5 and they have reasonable food prices. Tried the mushroom risotto ($5.95), made with huge, real mushrooms, not canned! Very tasty and topped with basil, tomato and delicious cheese (though not parmesan). Also had the Caribbean wings ($8.95... More

Just a short walk from the municipal parking lot we found the Soul Mountain cafe. The salads looked very popular from what we saw others ordering, and ours turned out to be excellent. We were sorry to learn they were completely out of the pulled pork, but enjoyed the BBQ chicken platter. Generous portions at fair prices =a good find... More

The entire staff seems to be confused at this restaurant. Four meals and I have little of anything good to say about any of them. They were served with the wrong sides, substitutions were made without asking, just a disastrous experience, This place is going down!

We were in Front Royal to shop on main street this weekend and had seen Soul Mountain restaurant the last time we were in so decided to have lunch. They were busy and it appeared only one person was attempting to wait on everyone. Took ten minutes for our drink order which wouldn't have been bad but management had called... More

We were visiting town for the weekend, looking for a place to eat after getting in on Friday night. Not wanting something heavy and expensive, but not wanting a burger joint or fast food either. This place was fantastic - surprisingly varied menu, very reasonable prices, and the food was FABULOUS! Add to that very attentive friendly service - loved... More

Locally owned and operated on Main St in Front Royal Va. Nice selection of moderately-priced choices on the menu and daily specials. I had the curry chicken wrap with fresh veggie side and enjoyed it a lot. Sister got the salmon cake and veggies and said that she looks forward to coming to the restaurant to get that. Not sure...

We were looking for a place to eat, and saw this place as we were driving through town. We decided to stop, and were so glad we did. The owner was extremely helpful and answered any questions we had about how the food was prepared. We had the ribs, and the BBQ sampler. The food was very good. Our only... More

Soul mountain is BY FAR the best restaurant in town. Hands down. It's not only the food but more importantly- the service. The owner goes out of his way to make sure his guests are comfortable and enjoy the experience and he takes pride in the food he serves as he should- it's spectacular! I would dine there every night... More
