Good food, nice atmosphere.

This is the bar with a restaurant. The food comes from the same chef as in the fancier dinning area. The meatloaf was excellent as were the sides. I had one drink, not sure if any alcohol was in it? It did taste good. The waitress was new, could not tell me about the fish specials and had to go... read more

The food is decent and sitting on the front porch is a must. The servers are very nice, but they seem to have an issue with clearing tables quick enough for the turnover of the guests. With the limited amount of decent restaurants to choose from in this town, we came here two nights in a row. Which does say... More

A nice restaurant with a bar and live entertainment. It is downstairs from the main lobby of the hotel. The waitresses and staff were very friendly and attentive. The music was live by a local acoustic entertainer named Larry Taylor. For dinner I ordered the salmon with green beans and couscous and my daughter ordered the portabello mushroom risotto with...

Not being greeted when we entered the door should have been my first clue that this is not a great place to dine. It really is just some tables and booths around a bar with a place for a 3 piece band in front of the bar. The flyer titled the place as "Upscale Casual Dining" but I am not... More

good food, nice atmosphere with a band playing. We all really enjoyed our evening here. Located in the big hotel in Luray at the top of the town.

We seemed to have chosen the wrong day to dine there as we witnessed waitresses in training or young inexperienced staff. There were basically three waitresses/waiters, more than enough to cover the small amount of diners at the time. Our waiter brought out the buffalo chicken appetizer without the prerequisite napkins and as I used the dinner napkin, I requested... More

Food was nice, flavorful and the place was a casual but yet elegant dining atmosphere. Nice Virginia wines. Wait staff was friendly.

My wife and I were staying at the Mimslyn Inn and were delighted to find that hotel had a quaint place to eat and have a drink. the atmosphere is nice but the service just was not what I would have thought it should have been. Long waits for food and the bar tender post was often deserted. The food... More

We dined at The Speakeasy one weekend while visiting Luray. The food was moderately priced and not bad. There was also live music, which was pretty good. We would go back, seeing that your options are limited in the town.
