This place has the local feel and eats. Our food was nothing outstanding, just an average meal. I do however recommend the corn fritters. They were very tasty. I had Jacky's pasta dish. It was a large portion for a reasonable price. It was good, but nothing spectacular. This was a Friday night... read more

We stopped here while visiting Luray. Seems like a cool place for the locals to hang out. It was also the only place open at 10. There was a DJ, it was pretty fun.

I was celebrating a birthday for a friend, the bar wasn't busy so you'd think they'd be gracious for the business but instead the "manager" Judy shooed us to the back room so we don't "disturb" the other guests who were watching a football game. They were honestly louder than we were, and for that I didn't tip her. I... More

Attentive staff, polite service, great and quick food. Went twice for breakfast and wish we could have gone for all of our meals! The seating is great even though the place was busy it felt like it was just my girl friend and I.

First of all, this place is right on main street with a big parking lot around the side & back which is very convenient. The food is absolutely to die for. Whether you like Prime rib, corn fritters, Caesar salads, fish, steaks, French onion soup, mixed drinks, beer, soda, Cappuccino, open faced roast beef sandwiches, burgers, fries, wings or my...

We usually order the breakfast food to go. Orders almost always ready in 10 minutes. Food is basic but good. Staff is usually friendly. In the summer they can be very busy with 1/2 wait times, but worth it.

We came here after a long hike for dinner. My friend got a bowl of the chili and said it was very hearty and flavorful. He was very happy with it. I had the house salad and it was good. Nothing exceptional, but just very good comfort foods. I would go back. Also, all of the staff was very friendly.

Went here for Sunday morning breakfast. Food was very good and the service fabulous. Everyone who works there was very nice. Classic small town diner feel and the food quality was excellent. I want to go back for dinner as there dinner menu looked fabulous.

We came to Luray whilst staying at Skyland in the NP. On arrival we weren't sure where to eat but some locals we asked recommended Uncle Bucks to us. It was a good recommendation - a huge menu to choose from and tasty food. the only slight grumble was that Mr TGB's mac'n'cheese could have been a bit warmer -... More
