As New Yorkers, we're spoiled by what are, arguably, some of the best restaurants in the country. We're hardly aficionados of gourmet, though, and simply seek out good food that doesn't make us ill. Simple, right? Spending a week nearby, and lacking options, we came into Lynchburg. Spotted this place, and almost passed it up, but turned around and parked.... More

Had a good meal here at Robin Alexander, in Lynchburg, VA. A comfortable atmosphere to visit with friends, and a very friendly staff that didn't mind taking photos to post on FB! Good food, good selection of wine and local beers.

My husband and I went to Robin Alexander’s during the 2014 Restaurant Week and we see no reason to go back anytime soon. We ordered 4 things each – cocktail, appetizer, entrée and dessert – so they had 8 opportunities to wow us. Unfortunately, only one item even came close. My cocktail was their riff on a bloody Mary martini... More

So, we tried this place a couple months ago when in town for a wedding, but only for a quick drink outside, so I didn't review. This time, we chose it for lunch, and dined inside. I am always so leary of "Burgers", usually overcooked and dry, but WOW this place totally exceeded my expectations with the juiciest, best cooked... More

Taking a break from the Interstate system we meandered through Virgina and decided to have lunch in Lynchburg. Browsing the web before we set out, the lunch menu at Robin Alexander looked promising, including the possibility of a daily lunch prix fixe special... two courses chosen by the chef for $9.49 served until 2:00 pm Meandering is meandering and the...

We walked to Robin Alexander for dinner on our last night in Lynchburg. It was a hot night and we were surprised that the outdoor seating area was packed. We choose to eat inside and were taken to a booth. We soon noticed that in was overly warm with no apparent air conditioning. Service was slow and our server spent... More

After having had two very good experiences eating supper with my spouse at RA, I had a bad one whe I went for lunch with coworkers. I do not want to return. The waitstaff treated me bad. They did not tell me anything about the specials and did not stop by to ask about how I was doing. The meal... More

I really wanted to love this place but the food, while good missed the mark. I would definitely go back but would choose different dishes.
