The food was delicious and a very good value. Best BBQ I've tasted in a long time. We'll definately go back again.

It was a hot day on lunch time. There was no air conditioning, just ventilators that didn't help much. The restaurant was full of flies. My spouse asked what kind of lager beer they have and the server offered different kinds of beer - not lager - so we understood that they don't have any lager beer. I asked if... More

From the time the waitress took our order, middle of the afternoon, until the food arrived at our table, was almost an hour. The room is rather noisy and echo-y, so we did not get to enjoy our wait. The food and prices were mediocre.

Chef Gary and staff (Kim and Thomas), thank you for catering my dear friend's wedding. It was a spectacular celebration and the menu contributed to the success of the occasion. Since the wedding was at my friend's house in Luray we were able to enjoy the leftovers the next day! The brisket, cold roasted vegetable pasta salad, roasted chicken with... More

We just finished eating at this small restaurant in Front Royal. An hour and a half out of my life I can not get back. I understand that this establishment sold out of most of it's food yesterday. With that being said, the waitress took our order anyway. We ordered an appetizer and sandwiches. We waited, and waited, and waited... More

I ordered a dozen hot wings with the Buffalo flavor. They were plenty hot so I'm glad I didn't get extra hot. This restaurant is in the downtown historic section of Front Royal. Not the nicest walking downtown but certainly not horrible. It was a nice day outside so the restaurant had its doors open. Only problem was that the... More

My husband and I stopped by there for dinner. It would have been nice to have more than 2 choices for wine by the glass. The service was friendly, but it took a while for our food to arrive. Food was good, but not all of it was hot.

We ate lunch at Soul Mountain a week ago and it was delicious. The wait staff was very friendly and recommended favorite menu items. The food is made to order by the chef and owner and worth the wait! If you are in Front Royal, stop by and try the BBQ, brisket, roasted chicken with gorgonzola risotto, and the crab... More

I was very surprised to see any positive reviews for this restaurant. I made the unfortunate mistake of eating here this past weekend. It looked nice- the menu looked very good. It was clean- so we went in at about 12:50. By the time someone came to our table, or even acknowledged us, it was 1:05. That should have been... More
