Like this place and it is worth the drive. Food was very good as was the service. I even caught a groundhog with the piece of cantaloupe Tanya boxed up for us to take home.

We visited this restaurant years ago when trout was served a variety of ways and was delicious. The menu has changed drastically and, while there is a variety of fish, there is certainly nothing exciting. My husband and I had the crabcakes, which were crab and not much filler but, for the price, were inadequate in quality..no lump crab to... More

This restaurant is a Valley tradition. The food is freshly prepared and very good. But, there are a few problems. Our hostess/server needs to take a course in how to treat customers if you want them to come back. Never a smile. Obviously displeased to have to come back twice to get all of our orders (group of 4). Several... More

Dear DOR816, Thank you for taking the time to review us, and I appreciate the kind words about the freshness and tastiness of our food. I agree with your assessment of the cole slaw, and it will be modified! I am very sorry that your dinner experience was dampened by your server; I will print and have all of our... More

The fact this place is now operated buy third generation should tell you it is a good place. Food is about the freshest we've had anywhere. Even diner salads tasted like they were freshly put together. This means the service may seem a little slow but for the freshness, it is worth it. I had a Ribeye that was cooked... More

Oh my.. where to start? The seafood platter and/or fried oysters were average in prep, presentation and taste. The prices were eye popping. Wow and to think I could have had a house salad for only $4.50 more to add to the pleasure of the frozen french fries. I didn't mind the animal heads or the very out of date... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner (I had the crab cake; he had the seafood platter) and amazing service. This place has a long history and it is still family-owned. It was a refreshingly warm and hospitable atmosphere and the meals were a great value. It is perfectly located on US 11 (just off I-81) 11 miles north of Harrisonburg.

We visited Blue Stone Inn with great expectations. Having dined there years ago, on numerous occasions, we were quite excited to be visiting once again. How quickly our excitement turned to utter disappointment. We were greeted with a surly, unhappy waitress, whose sulkiness never lifted despite our best efforts at pleasantries. We had to beg for extra napkins and water... More

Dear Past Its' Prime, I am terribly sorry your group had such a dreadful experience at our restaurant. I was the dining room manager that night, and as I recall, you ate fairly early in the evening at the large round table in the back of the room. My most sincere apologies for your server's attitude; all of the staff... More

I have been here 3-4 times. I have never been disappointed. Their prime rib is good, and the seafood is worth trying. Don't let the old school exterior deter you from trying this place at least once. We have always received great service and would gladly go again. Very easy to find, from I-81 Mauzy exit head south on Rte-11,... More

We visited The Blue Stone Inn for dinner. It was smaller than we thought from pictures and quite busy this Saturday night but they had us a table in no time at all. We found the lodge decor charming. The service was friendly but not always accurate. There was an error in our drink and food orders but we took... More
