I had moved to Lynchburg two days earlier. The choices looked good but my expectations were low given that it was restaurant week which often means less than the best in many locales. From the moment we entered, Jamie and Missy treated us like long lost friends. Our waiter told us he had worked there for years and his attention... More

We had been told by the owners of our B&B that The Crowne Sterling was one of our best choices in Lynchburg. Our waiter was great: he was attentive without being overbearing, made several suggestions which were very helpful, which made for a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, we found the meal we had to be just average, with a sort of... More

We went to Crown Sterling for dinner on Valentine's Day. Long wait as they were not taking reservations but we decided to wait. Service was a little less than par but as I said it was an extremely busy night and the waiter was doing the best he could. I felt maybe they had not expected so many people and... More

We had our work Christmas party at Crowne Sterling today. TERRIBLE service. We waited over an hour for our food. When it arrived, the crab cakes were cold and burned. Those who ordered soup and salad were not served their soup until those with entrees were done eating. The reason? "The potato soup is so good, we always run out... More

We were in town on business and heard the Crown Sterling was the best place for a steak - and it was!! I had the 5 oz filet and stuffed strimp. My steak, medium rare, was cooked to perfection. Our server, David, was attentive, friendly, and provided great advice. He helped make our experience a cut above. The restaurant staff... More

While in town for a family graduation, I took my wife back to the place where we got engaged 18 years ago....The Crown Sterling. I had heard it was under new ownership so I wasn't sure it would be the same....thankfully, it was like we remembered it. The tables were arranged like before so we were able to seated where... More

My boyfriend and I went to the Crown Sterling for our anniversary and they treated us great! Our waiter was very attentive. I got the ribeye and my boyfriend got filet and lobster. They also gave us a free parfait for our anniversary. We were very happy with everything! The new management has done a great job at bringing the... More
