Trip to Luray Caverns

Stopped here for dinner by chance and were very pleased with the food. We had a cobb salad with turkey (without the ham) and the rib eye steak.

It's the perfect restaurant to stop in and just hang out, watch some sports and have a good meal. Very cozy. My friends and I shared crab stuffed mushrooms and I later had the BBQ sandwich that claimed to have "the best sauce ever."....it is the best sauce...maybe not EVER, but it was very very good! I enjoyed everything from... More

HORRIBLE service. We had a older lady as our waitress she was quick about our first drinks. We placed our order and then we began to wait for a long time for our food but as we wait out glasses sit empty until we asked the other person if we could have refills because our waitress was no where to...

This is a nice family restaurant. The food is fairly simple and satisfying. The menu is very broad with many types of food to suit different tastes.

Got up early for coffee and a quick bite at the Gathering Grounds Cafe before starting our cave tour at Luray Caverns. Unfortunately we got there several hours before opening, instead we ended up at Uncle Buck's simply because they were open. Wish we had waited. Their coffee does not even remotely qualify as coffee, it is at best warm... More

My wife and I enjoyed the all-you-can-eat Spaghetti dinner (fit the bill), after enjoying some of the stores along Main Street.

Stopped here at the suggestion of a "local", very good meal with good size portions. I had the BBQ sliders. 3 buns overflowing with pulled pork, sauce on the side and upgraded to onion rings. My wife had soup and a side salad. Both entrees were very tasty and the side salad was large enough that we thought that maybe... More

This place had an awesome breakfast. That is all I had here was breakfast so I can't speak for lunch, dinner, etc. But, I imagine it is great too. This restaurant is like what a Cracker Barrel wants to be. The ambience is great. Prices are typical for small town Virginia....

On a recent trip to Luray to visit Luray Caverns we ate at Uncle Bucks on Main Street, once for Breakfast, once for dinner. On both occasions the food was very good with generous portions. For breakfast I would have given a 4 star because our waitress was slow, not friendly and service was poor ( didn't refill beverages unless... More
