Felt as if we were in a Monty Python skit...waiter kept saying "nope...we're out of that". How does a restaurant run out of house chardonnay, and bottled chardonnay, and several appetizers? How does he not know what "oaked" refers to in wine? How does he not know what the Chef's choice vegetable is? Throw in lipstick on the wine glass,... More

I am so sorry for your experience but grateful that you took the time to advise us of your experience. I know we came off of an extremely busy weekend and have limited deliveries to the lake area. This has always been a challenge for us. Food & Wine deliveries are limited with our wine only available for delivery on... More

Regardless of your choices, the food is always delicious, attractively presented and the wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It's the finest restaurant on Smith Mountain Lake, by far.

We came by boat on a busy Sat night and managed to get seats at the bar after a short wait. While we didn't make it to every restaurant on the lake during our stay, this one had the hands down best food. It's pricier, but the bar scene is friendly, the bartender was attentive (the bar was full---she was... More

This is one of the best restaurants on Smith Mountain Lake. The food is good, but the prices are high. On top of that, you can expect your dinner to last close to 3 hours. While servers are busy, management seems to believe that customers SHOULD wait that long and WANT to wait that long for good food. It can... More

I am sorry for your experience and appreciate the time you took to write this review. Bruno and I do have a different approach to dining and most of our customers enjoy spending the evening with us. We do allow 2 1/2 hours on all tables because we never want a customer to feel rushed and we want them to... More

Bartender had a large crowd but she refused to let another waitress wait on our group. It took 20 min. to get a Drink. Another Hour! to receive our food and my wife's 0rder was incorrect. Food was Good , Just Don't go to the Bar for any Service.

I sold a condo to a super sweet couple last week in Bernards Landing where the Landing Restaraunt is located. They wanted us to go out to celebratory dinner, and wow. I really can't believe we live so close to the landing at Bernards landing and have not been here in years. That is definitely going to change! It was... More

The menu is now suited for the family, casual and fine dining. The service is on point and the food is excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to go for a burger (FANTASTIC) or the Pittsburg Fillet Mignon - real matched potatoes and fantastic dessert!

My husband and I ate here yesterday evening for our first anniversary dinner. We had reservations for 730 and were immediately seated as soon as we arrived, right on time.

We got there at 4:30 which is about 30 minutes before the restaurant officially opens for dinner. Barbara greeted us when we came in and explained that they were not open yet, but that we could...
