We will be back, AWESOME

We were looking for a place for our families to meet half way for my hubby birthday and to exchange our Christmas presents, after research on Facebook and Trip Advisor we chose To Do Cafe and Seafood. So glad we did! It might be small, but it provided awesome service, awesome food, friendly... read more

We were looking for something a little different. Menu had a good assortment of different item. Chairs were very uncomfortable. Food was good but not plentiful.

We acidentally came across this restaurant while staying one night in Tappahannock and we're glad we tried it. The place is small and quaint but amazingly clean. The menu focuses on seafood but has a great sandwich menu too. Service was good, food was hot and well prepared. I had scallops and my husband has flounder and neither of us... More

I was looking for a local/home spun restaurant. Well I found it at the TO DO restaurant located on Route 17 North or Church Rd.. The way to find it is just look for the pick up trucks in the parking lot. Upon walking in it is not a fancy place but the staff makes you feel like family. The... More

We drive up that way twice a year to pick up hay for our goats. Stopping at the To Do Cafe is the highlight of our 3 hour round trip.

I'm sure many would like this main road side cafe and if we'd chosen to sit inside it might have been better. We sat outside because the ambience inside was...non existent. Outside we were serenaded by trucks hurtling by on Rte 17. The table was gritty (not wiped). The beer selection was down home usual and the so called 'baskets'... More

Having passed the colorful little cafe a hundred times I opted to check it out over lunch time. Seating for roughly 40 guests this cafe has a homey feel great for family and good friends looking to relax. The service was prompt and before I knew it was enjoying a wonderful mushroom & bacon burger on a nice kaiser roll.... More

It's easy to miss this restaurant as you drive by. But you'll be glad you found it as this is a must stop if you're in the area. During three different visits we had coconut shrimp, fried oysters, fried soft shell crab, and crab cakes. All were excellent. We had sides of butter beans and cold slaw which were tasty... More
