Interior decorating is a little tired, as was the staff and make-it-your-own salad bar (1 lettuce choice? Really). Food was good (and steaks very good). Desserts were excellent. Not a place for young families, unless your children are very well-behaved and know what "use your inside voice" means. ;-)

Staying overnight in Lynchburg, we didn't want to eat at a chain restaurant. I was in the mood for a steak. Google turned up Outback but also the Crowne Stirling. So, not knowing anything about the place, we decided to try it. Glad we did. As others have said, the service was very good without being overbearing. The waiter took... More

This was my first time visiting. From the moment I walked in the staff made sure my experience was wonderful. It was so nice to be waited on by a polite and mature staff. Loved the atmosphere and the decor. Food was wonderful and cannot wait to visit again.

From a positive perspective, the service was excellent and the retro atmosphere is cool, but the food was average at best. The salad bar looked like it had fresh ingredients but the serving bowls were small soup bowl size so the serving size was very small. My wife and I ordered sirloin and one was served cold and the other... More

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

The crown has been my favorite for years but went through different owners and lost some of its appeal, but since amie and Missy have been running it the quality and service is back to ecellent. I eat at steak houses all around the country and I will put their steaks and prime rib up against any, including Ruth Chris... More

We ate here as part of a large group. Service Extremely attentive service. Food terrific. My wife had the prime rib which was cooked to perfection. I had the tuna steak. It was great. The baked potatoe was the best I have ever had. Terrific salad bar with wide selection. We had private room with nice atmosphere. My only complaint... 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
