I have been here several times and the food has been pretty good, but that's about it. However, this time the food was excellent. We had the Filet Mignon, the Spinach Ricotta Ravioli and the Brownie Sundae. All were excellent. The brownie sundae is large enough to serve two. The service was pretty good and the wait staff was very... More

I had lunch her with my two grown daughters while visiting Winchester, VA. Located in an upscale mini mall. Nice selection on the menu. Reasonable prices. Friendly staff. Clean bathrooms. A very nice outdoor seating area and plenty of room between tables and booths so one does not feel like you are on top of the folks next to you.... More

My husband and I walked in @ 7:00 pm tonight and were told there was a 30 minute wait. We took a beeper and walked to the bar to try to find some seats. Then we started counting the empty booths - at least four to five, not to mention the outdoor seating area with only 2 occupied tables (which... More

This is a review of the Purcellville restaurant. We have always enjoyed the Winchester location. Unfortunately, the new Purcellville location is greatly lacking in qualify food and service. The service was poor and the food overcooked. We waited over 45 minutes for our meals. The manager admitted she has not been able to find competent wait staff and was less... More

My wife and I stopped in for brunch today in the IJ Canns that just opened in Purcellville Gateway. We had the breakfast pizza with eggs, chorizo, and tomatoes. I would prefer the crust to be a bit more toasted and crisp on the bottom but it was very tasty. The side of olive tampenade was a nice touch. The... More

We recently dined here for Mother's Day weekend and were once again satisfied with a decent meal. We ordered the jambalaya pasta, a mildly spicy dish. Contrary to what I have read on recent reviews, I would not say that the portions are overly large - at least not for the dish we ordered. My favorite items at this restaurant... More

Went in for lunch. Not bad - service was very good. I'd say my expectations may have been overdone - especially after seeing prices. It was good but didn't do prices justice.

This is truly an American style grill. The menu is surprisingly limited, but does include some all- American standards. The prices are good and the portions are generous (which makes this very American). We went ahead and tried the Prime Rib and found it to be very good. The server was attentive and friendly, even offered to bring us a... More

The food is very good. We ate there for the first time on our wedding night. We have been back quite a few times.

IJ Canns is a little on the upscale side. It is very nice for that special occasion. The food is very good and the staff pleasant. It provides an enjoyable atmosphere in which to dine.
