Neat place for lunch, good food, off the Interstate!

We took the Lynchburg exit looking for a non-fast food establishment. My wife chose this place without looking around or even online. Very neat décor and bar inside, seems like it would be a good place to go for a little live music on weekends. This was a Thursday lunch in March. I ordered an... read more

During a trip to Lynchburg, VA, my wife and I, on recommendation by the Owner of a B&B we were staying (and a great recommendation it was), went to RA Bistro. We shared a Szechwan Pork Rib appetizer, Honey Spiced Salmon and a Greek Quinoa Salad. Truly outstanding - virtually flawless in presentation, quality and unique taste. Add that to... More

My husband and I went to meet his work friends at RA. Although the dinner menu is not impressive and the service was slow, we were having a good time. Apparently, we were being loud while a guy was playing his guitar and singing a bad song, that the hostess asked us to leave, because "the next reservation was waiting... More

Stopped by on my way back to the Craddock Terry Hotel where I was staying. I chose to order dinner to go and waited for dinner at the bar. They had a Wed evening special - 1/2 price wine bottles which I took back with me. The bartender uncorked my bottle for me and I had a glass of wine... More

It comes out and I cut the burger in half and its pink in the middle. I had the waitress sent it back and again the same hamburger comes back to me 15... More

Fantastic! I had the House Burger and it was delicious... no... it was out of this world. Very friendly & fun staff. Atmosphere is perfect. Prices are well worth the pleasure to the taste buds! Will return when back in the area!

Delicious food, great presentation, stellar service!! The owner came and visited my table, told me about his vision for the place, rooted in excellence in all areas! This was reinforced then by the waitress who came and shared how much she enjoys working there and how great the owner is to the staff!! Overall, a fantastic dining experience!!

I have always enjoyed the food here. The servers are attentive and the decor is fun. My biggest complaint is that the live music that is sometimes offered can be rock concert loud. Call before going if you care to talk to the people you are dining with. I last ate there on Feb. 13, 2015. For just under $16... More

So we dropped in at 11 p.m. on a Saturday night. The lady behind the bar was great, accomodated our desire for food. And the crowd at the bar was really fun. A terrific experience.
