Great For the Price

Couple in 60's after day's cycling on the Greenbrier Trail, looking for simple dinner close to lodging. We concur with Jeepman-92, "Tasty home cooking, but don't be in a hurry"! Although late and seeming nearly empty, waited maybe 20 minutes for service. But once begun, our salad, spaghetti... read more

Went with a group of 6 on business for lunch. Not sure they got 1 order correct. They were out of half of the stuff that was ordered. Just not great food or worth it. Have not been back, although I have been back in town on business.

Stood with a friend for nearly 20 minutes without even a glance from three servers working. A dozen vacated tables and not one bussed during this time. I left. My friend remained. With service this poor I'll never be back. Avoid it if you can.

Dorie's has good food. Sometimes a little slow getting to the table if it's crowded or a waitress short. It happens. Decent price, good value.

We went in for dinner and because I had no cell service I couldn't use my trip advisor app to read earlier reviews of this restaurant. There was approximately 6 other tables with patrons when we arrived. My husband ordered a hamburger and I got a pulled pork sandwich. My husband ordered sweet tea and the first glass was fine,...

Rather sparse restaurant in a rather sparse town, Dories offers a friendly welcome, good food,and low prices. The portions are Americanized, so splitting a meal makes sense, especially if you're enticed by one their freshly home-made pies. There's no cell phone service in the whole area, so you won't be bothered by others blabbing into phones while you're trying to... More

Restaurant was about 75% full when we arrived for lunch after 20 miles biking on the Greenbrier trail. Salad arrived in about 15 minutes and BLT arrived 30 minutes later. Seemed to be well staffed, just not sure why it took so long for such a simple lunch?

After 2 days and close to 60 miles on the Greenbrier River Trail we wanted a sit-down restaurant meal. Dorie's was the choice, 3 short blocks from the Old Clark Inn where we kept our bikes. It's a country / small town restaurant, with enough tables and space to fit 75 people or so. Clean. Booths and tables are available... More

Lots to choose from, with gravy on lots of it! A few healthy choices, but not the reason to come to Dorrie's. Loved the salad with crunchy chicken and french fries on top - needed to head for the bike trail to work off the calories afterwards, but it was worth it.

The food is average at best. It's not great and not horrible. They do have a pretty good variety and i like the burritos, very nice portion! The wait for my meal was ridiculous the last couple of times I was there, so I don't plan on returning. No kidding, hour to hour and a half waits each time.
