Waste of money and time.

Food was generic and tasteless. Foods were way out of temp.... Kept sending stuff back to reheat. Service was downright horrible. Two hour dining experience waiting on food and drinks...much better places in HB.

Had pizza and their house salad. Great dressing! Personal pizza was larger than expected and great tasting. Service was great also.

This was a staple when we attended JMU, but we recently went back and took my husband's brother to dinner there. We had eaten lunch at D-Hall, so we weren't really hungry but wanted some delicious gyros. So we were thrilled to see the Mikro Menu with smaller plates. My husband and I each got the Gyro Hor D’oeuvre (1/2... More

In the few times my friends have dragged me there, the management seems miffed if we stay at our table for more than 30 minutes. If you have a large group, they'll cut you off after one drink. We're talking mid-30's professionals that comprised the group.

I usually don't do reviews but after speaking to the manager about a mistake on my bill, I feel it necessary to do so. I received my credit card statement and it did not match my bill. More money had been added. When I called to make him aware of the mistake (not even asking for my money back) he... More

Loved eating on the upstairs, outside patio. The greek salad was amazing and my son demolished his steak and cheese. I'd definitely return!

This was close to the JMU campus and had good food at a reasonable price. Menu had a good variety for all. Service was quick and they took reservations for this busy weekend.

We stopped in at Dave's after taking our son back to his dorm room on Saturday night during Parents Weekend at JMU. We were walking through downtown and noticed the crowd standing outside of Dave's and decided that we had to go in to see what it was all about. Since it was just the 2 of us, we were... More

We had an Athenian Pizza there. It was pretty good. The service was good, even changed our table when we asked them too. We recommend the place.
