Their breakfast is fantastic, as is the chicken salad, burgers, chicken fingers, epic chicken thingy....you really can't go wrong. I love this place. Friendly service and good value too.

I hate to say this, but I think they should charge more. The food is really good. It's not super exceptionally-tasting, but it's better than most independent American cuisine type restaurants. But their prices are so low for the quantity of food you get.

Service was fast and friendly. Menu had a wide variety and the meals we had were good. Prices were very reasonable and they have a good selection of beer and wine. 2 guitar players were not too loud ane the music was a nice background without being intrusive.

It did seem to be a favorite in the area but I just wasn't impressed. I had the french dip and it was really salty. My daughter ate something with shrimp in it that she did't even bother eating because it wasn't any good to her. Someone did mention to use that the chicken salad was excellent but I didn't... More

Good food and live music. What else do you need? Prices are very resonable and the selection of food is diverse. I had a sandwich while my companion had breakfast. Both were very good, generous portions. If any negatives, it would be that more space would be nice.

Be ready to wait on busy weekends (while school is in session). We arrived about 11:30 am and waited approx. 20 minutes. Two in my family are "non meat eaters" , and they both enjoyed their meals. One had an Omelet, and the other had French toast with hash browns. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Our server was friendly and always... More

Radford, VA has become a stop for us driving back and forth from NY to Florida. (See Radford Inn) Today we arrived at dinner time and the desk clerk recommended the RCG. It was NOT crowded. Radford Univ is not in session. Only a few of the dozen table was occupied, So our server (Dallas) was attentive and excellent. Since... More

A very good restaurant, but there is not a lot of seating and the tables are very close to each other. So if you don't mind rubbing elbows with your neighbors, the food and service are worth it.
