A Shocker

I was expecting typical "pub food" but was very pleased to find a better than average lunch. A huge selection, good service by friendly wait staff, which topped off a nice respite from our day of touring.

The major draw to this place is the view. It has a great view of the lake. The food is good not great. They have a wide selection of sandwiches. I usually get the French Dip sandwich, its good. Their service is not usually very good though. It is often quite slow and not very attentive. There have been times... More

Nothing fancy. Simple food served 1950 style. A little pricey for what it is, but then again what resort type restaurant isn't? There are better places around the lake

Loved this Mexican joint accessible by road or by boat on Smith Mountain Lake in western Va. This little operation is a popular spot in the summer and closes in early fall for the winter season. It is a darling, decorated waterfront bldg. appropriately rustic and adjacent to a marina. The best items were a wonderfully fresh salsa, the cheese... More

It's a quiet restaurant that's nestled right on the water with great views. My family and I dine here often at least once a month. Great burgers especially the Moosie Burger get yourself one if you have a big stomach. The servers are great always quick to give you a refill.

I recently had family visiting from out of state. It was a Sunday and my cable provider didn't have the "right" football game on. I was sure Moosie's would be my savior! Both of my brothers were able to watch their favorite teams play and my husband was able to watch NASCAR. They were serving a free white chile bar... More

Visited Moosie's during our recent stay at Smith Mountain Lake (SML). My husband ordered the nachos as an appetizer & when the server brought the plate out our jaws dropped! This thing was massive......and it was the small! We both canceled our entrees & just had the nachos for dinner. The nachos were delicious! Our server was nice & the... More

While visiting Smith Mountain Lake I went here with my husband and another couple. The restaurant was very crowded and we were not greeted right away. We grabbed the first available table and were told we cannot sit there as there were only four of us and it was a table for six. After a small discussion with the waitress... More
