We planned our homeward bound journey around at least one stop at Mrs. Rowe's. We just had dinner there tonight, and if we get our act in gear tomorrow, we'll eat breakfast there on our way out of town, too . It's an astonishing restaurant--nothing quite like it anywhere else. This is Southern home cooking, from scratch. The baking is... More

The pies and pastries are great. The service is friendly and the food is excellent. Just can't get better home cooking. Be careful, the portions are very generous.

It's no wonder they have been around since 1947. The food is all home made and you just need to stop here. We had the meatloaf with mushroom gravy and collard greens. WOW !!! If you are a dessert person, then look no more. All the pies. cookies, cakes, etc. are absolutely amazing !! I even brought some extra cookies... More

This is a local restaurant that serves Southern style food. It was okay, but nothing special. The cost of the meal was inexpensive. Service was very good.

We were looking forward to trying Mrs. Rowe's and we wee sadly disappointed. We had two orders of fried chicken, neither of which tasted good, let alone great. The fish was cold, as were the mashed potatoes. The veggies were overcooked. Our waitress was nice but looked EXHAUSTED. Apparently, the entire restaurant had been full prior to our arrival and...

My friend and I were in Staunton sightseeing and stopped here for lunch. Except for the pie, which was excellent, we both felt the food was very mediocre. I ordered fried fish and was served a small portion of batter with a smidgen of fish. I sent it back. The next piece was small, but at least it contained some... More

Had breakfast there and had my worst cup of coffee in years, a plate piled high with flavorless cream chipped beef that tasted like they bought it from a supermarket, and a limp plate of scrambled eggs that were flat and looked like they were made by my seven year old. My waitress was unpleasant and when I asked a... More

Ate here because we were staying next door at the Best Western, Staunton Inn. She had crab cakes and I had meat loaf. Both were very tasty. Portions were good-sized and prices were reasonable. Service was very good. The cashier's face was a bit on the dour side, but that didn't affect the meal! Nice porch with lots of chairs... More
