NICE RESTAURANT

GOOD NEWS: My Shrimp and Grits were wonderful and the Caesar salad was very good as well. Coming from Charleston, SC that is saying something. BAD NEWS: My husband's pork chops were overdone but edible. As it relates to service, this place was good, but somewhat snobbish for a restaurant in... read more

A small place with very good food. Not huge portions but they seem to strive to have quality food. Not a big place with limited parking but it is well worth the trip. Prices are reasonable to a little pricey on some things.

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.

Then I was asked if I had a reservation. I did not. There were two tables that had been seated and the... More

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