My sisters and I ate at Elmwood at a Sparks for lunch. The food was delicious. We had two different types of quiche and a salad with a yummy house dressing. They were really busy as Saturdays are their "burger" days and by the looks of it, they must be very popular! The thing that impressed us the most was... More

Ate at this restaurant Friday and Saturday night this past weekend. There's a reason this place is ranked #1 on TripAdvisor for Orange. Charming atmosphere, great service and great food. Chef Randy's menu is not that large but is well thought out and has something for everyone. On the Saturday night we were a group of 10 and everyone raved... More

A small little gem in the center of Orange, VA. Even our teenage children said the food was good - that's a great compliment!

We spent the morning at Montpelier and decided to drive into Orange to find a spot for lunch. After consulting TripAdvisor and yelp, we chose Elmwood at Sparks, which did not disappoint! The chicken salad and quiche were exceptionally good (and my hubby and I are both a bit "picky")! Our waitress was pleasant, helpful, and kept our beverages full... More

We visit Orange occasionally for R&R and always try to eat at Elmwood at Sparks once during our visit. It is consistently good and one of our favorite Virginia restaurants. The menu selections tend to be limited to a relatively few items, but they span the scope of practically anything we would want, so that is fine. Some of the... More

My husband and I visited the restaurant for our five year anniversary. We were surprised and impressed to see our names and a welcome message to us at the top of our menus! Very sweet :o) Everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. We will definitely visit this restaurant again! Thank you!

The service and ambiance were great. Not fancy, but nice. The fillet steaks were phenomenal. The salad was great too. We didn't have dessert. A very nice experience.
