I love this place

We made our second stop a To Do. I love this place. The owner and staff are very friendly and the food is great. All sides are homemade and so are the cocktail and tarter sauces. Do yourself a favor and stop in for some great seafood. BTW, we are going back for dinner.

We stopped here for lunch after touring homes for the Historic Garden Week and we were hungry! Someone had flounder, oysters, cheeseburger and homemade fries, Really good homemade hamburger patties and fries. Our dessert...the coconut pie was so good we vowed to come back...just for it. This is a nothing fancy restaurant with very reasonable prices. Family owned. Check it... More

Great little find with wonderful homemade food. The desserts are all homemade and the staff are friendly and helpful! We had the crab puff appetizers which were great along with an order of hush puppies which were to die for.

The food was extremely reasonable, and amazing. The owners and staff so friendly and nice!! This is now my new favorite restaurant in town so much better then the over priced seafood from the other restaurants in town. I highly recommend this for anyone that likes a casual spot and great food

Husband and I both had burgers that were incredibly delicious! The Maui burger (with ham and pineapple) and the Monster burger (with everything) are worth eating. Service was surprisingly speedy and our server was very pleasant.

The TO DO Cafe is a great hidden gem. It is a small restaurant. They have the best local seafood and comfort food in the area! We always stop in whenever we arein the area and the owners know us by name. It is that kind of place!

Wanted a nice local place for my daughter & I to eat lunch before leaving Tappahannock. To Do is wonderful! Hand patted hamburgers & hand cut fries, home made desserts! Everything was fresh & great! Service was excellent, nice decor & it was clean, including the bathrooms :-) Will definitely be stopping by when going through again!

Stopped here based on Trip Advisor reviews. The decor was not fancy but the homemade food and friendly service were excellent. Try the Humming Pig cake-couldn't be more delicious!
