We enjoyed our brunch here this past Saturday. I had the the Huevos Nuevos with my eggs over easy and it was very yummy! My daughter had the South Anna scramble which was my least favorite. I think I didn't like the trout taste in my breakfast food. My husband had Green Eggs and lamb and it was incredible! The... More

This is a favorite place of mine which offers some fantastic meals and deserts. While it gets a lot of press for the battleships (gigantic sandwhiches), my favorite items here are the brunch items. All of the ones I have had have been amazing. The one downside here is the wait. The restaurant is small (and popular), so lends itself... More

The food here is outstanding. Honestly the best sandwiches I have ever had. They make their own pickled veggies and each sandwich has a unique sauce and flavor. Don't order a full size one as it is two feet long!

We stopped in after 4PM on a Sunday to find only two tables available - one in the window and one in the center of the quaint and charming room. We opted for the table in the center of the room to get a 360 view of all the original painting and curios covering the walls. I'm thankful for the... More

My family and I ate here on a Sunday night. We arrived around 7:15 pm and got a table for four with no wait. We ordered three different "battleship" sandwiches. All the sandwiches were good. We like the USS Santana the best. I would return to this restaurant. The service was friendly and efficient.

We had a great meal here on a Saturday. There was a 30 minute wait for a table, but we enjoyed some adult beverages while waiting on the back patio. Four of us split two 'half' sandwiches - one had jerk chicken and the other was incredibly tender steak. So so good. And that bread!

We were mighty hungry which is the best spice and The Black Sheep was the ticket. I can't wait to visit again.

Omg this food. I need to try all of their massive sandwiches. You can "jump ship" and get the sandwich as a salad, which I prefer, and you don't have to feel weird asking for no bread.

Mostly sandwiches. Had my doubts but this place turn out to be good. The taste was different from what I was expecting. They had siracha.
