Quaint little restaurant with southern hospitality. The food selection was good and you definitely got enough when you ordered. I like that it was split in to two sitting areas, and the classic downtown shops that were around.

Very friendly local café with a good variety of food and very reasonable prices. A pleasant place and nice break from nationally franchised restaurants. I like to support local businesses, which are the backbone of America!

We stopped in while passing through Luray. Not the greatest food but the people were very friendly. It was ok. Not sure why the air conditioning wasn't on. Would eat here again in a pinch, but probably try elsewhere.

If you are not in any rush, then visit this restaurant. The food was fine, but it took some time. Probably not my first option, but not my last either!

I enjoyed the local feel of Uncle Buck's but on the day we visited, the interior dining room was 88 degrees, almost as hot as it was outside! I asked the waitress about the air conditioning and she said the owner claimed it was working fine. The food was not terrible, but the hash wasn't what I expected. There was... More

Wow, they were slammed! We arrive on Sunday about noon, first waited about 45 minutes for our food. The server handled it well. She updated us when we got there saying that it would be a long wait. She kept our drinks full and updated us on how much longer it would be till our food came out. All and... More

We ate here for breakfast and had homemade corned beef hash and eggs and country fried steak with the most delicious white country gravy with homemade biscuits. It was clear this restaurant was the local's favorite. The menu had many choices and the service was quick and friendly.

Restaurant was referred to us by a couple of employees from Luray Cavern, stating they had the best southern food. A large party of 20 people arrived before us and the kitchen couldn't keep up. Bartender had to take our drink order because the waitress was to busy. When she finally took our food order we had a very long... More
