Nice Local Restaurant

We had the Stromboli and crabmeat lasagne. Both were good. Help was attentive. Place was busy but we were able to get a seat and get good service.

not much restaurant choices without driving into Roanoke, but this one was good food, outdoor patio very large - even a bar, but the flies were annoying to the point that it made me eat very fast so I could leave.

Excellent menu. Food available for adults & children. Inside & outside dining. Very ample portions. Always leave with doggie bags. We really like dining outside on the patio. Cocktails, beer & wine available.

Service a little slow and not very attentive. If you are looking for a place for conversation, try some where else. It is noisy as a sports bar should be. Saw a previous review commenting that place was not clean; did not find any such problems. Food was ok, but nothing to write home about. Four of us had sandwiches... More

Mac N Bob's was much bigger inside that we expected from the outside. There's an outdoor patio and lots of indoor space, including a large bar area and several other dining rooms. Staff was pleasantly attentive and the food was very good--I highly recommend the cod sandwich because it was delicious! Will say it's a bit noisy but, since it's... More
