Third Bay - Great local food & atmosphere

We went with a group of 10. I had tilapia special! Excellent. In the past I have enjoyed their homemade desserts - yum!

Food here is great. Lunch is really good but I enjoy supper the most. Locally owned and operated, the scallop concoctions are wonderful, pork chops are fork tender, and beef is outstanding. Call for reservations, though, because I am not the only one around here with this opinion!

Went here with a small group from work and everything was absolutely wonderful. From the moment we took the first bite of the dinner salad, until we took the last bite of chocolate chess pie, everything was delicious. Everything was prepared fresh once ordered so if you are in a hurry, this is probably not the place for you. Anytime... More

This is one of the best places for lunch in Martinsville. Good atmosphere for friends or a business meeting. The steak salad at Third Bay Café is my favorite.

These folks have good food but the service is awful. I went to Third Bay on a Friday evening and upon arrival at 6:00, I waited at the counter for at least 15 minutes before I was greeted. Then I was asked if I had a reservation. I did not. There were two tables that had been seated and the... More

I do really do tire of going out and spending money for nothing. Found a Rubber Band in my food! Yuck, just a turn off. Told the manager and all they say is thanks for telling me. Just not good way to do business. Service was lousy , hard to say about quality of food since I was so turned... More

The inconspicuous location belies the dining experience that awaits you at Third Bay Cafe. A converted 60's gas station is now a great place to have an excellent dinner. Extremely personal service harkens back to the old days as well. It's not speedy, but who cares. Plan on a leisurely dining experience and enjoy! Salads come with homemade dressing of... More

Most of the food is locally grown; no frozen warmed-up meals. Everything is prepared fresh when you order it. The chief will cook your food your way. Friendly staff.
