Good Place to have dinner in Petersburg

Stopped overnight in Petersburg VA. Restaurant directly across from hotel. Food was good - not gourmet but definitely worth the price. Staff is friendly. Saw other people from our hotel there - food looked good.

Meal of shrimp, fish and oysters was less than $30. The food was adequate and our waitress, amber, was very attentive and her service was great. We would return here and recommend it to friends.

This restaurant is located conveniently off I 95 next door to a Quality Inn and near many other hotel/motels. It is clean and the waitresses are all friendly and efficient. There is plenty of room inside and locals can often be found here which is always an indication of good food and fair prices. Folks recommend it as a good... More

I read a lot reviews before I check out a restaurant. I didn't know what, by some reviews, if i should try or not. I did. And glad I did. Service great. Nice place. Food was very good. I had the flounder. Very well spiced and cooked. Coleslaw was very good. Will stop again when in the area.

We arrived near to closing time, and were seated and served very graciously. Our meals were nicely prepared and delicious.

Co worker and I was staying at the Quality Inn next door and wanted some drinks and eats. The bar area is small but the customers in it were awesome! The bartender was horrible(we all have our days) and the food was average. If I'm ever in the area I MIGHT go back back for a couple drinks.
