Nice pub in the Mimslyn Inn

We ate here on a Wednesday evening. The food was excellent. The atmosphere was pleasant , service very good and prices reasonable. It was recommended to us by a local person who said " it's a little fancier than other places in town". She was correct and it was a good recommendation. They have live... read more

My husband and I were on an off-season vacation in Luray and had asked the innkeeper where to go for good food, drinks and entertainment. They told us The Speakeasy was the place to go. At first sight it doesn't look like more than your standard hotel bar/restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised at how wonderfully pleasant and helpful our server... More

It's not fancy, but the burgers (and veggie burgers) are first rate. Even better, the restaurant uses local meats and produce. The bar has the best selection in town. Music on many nights.

Our experience at Speakeasy was very mixed. We'd been told by a friendly local shop owner it had a Prohibition-themed vintage drink menu and a good underground vibe. The only things remotely related to that era, though, were the photos of mobsters and temperance campaigners. It mainly just felt like an Applebee's inside. However, we ordered a "two for $25"...

We have no complaints... it was... average.. not outstanding... not terrible.. just average. perhaps we expected more from Speakeasy since it's part of the Inn? regardless.. food and drinks were good. Prices reasonable.

Okay, let's face it, choice of dining in Luray is rather limited to basic fare. My girlfriend and I wanted an early dinner (c. 4pm) on a Friday evening, and stumbled into the Speakeasy. The staff was very friendly, and the decor simple and functional. Between 4-6pm was an offer for a $10 wine with an entree (we had the... More

We went into the Speak Easy on a whim but it turned out to be a very nice evening we had dinner, food was awesome, service great and the music a local jazz group topped off a nice Sunday evening, would definitely reccomend dinner here

We stayed at the Mimslyn Inn for a family get together for a few days. The others in our group had eaten here 3 years before (with positive memories of the food quality) and as it was late and convenient, we had dinner here our first night (a Saturday night). The food quality was not up to the former standard... More

We ate here twice for dinner as Luray does not have very many options for Sunday dinner. Overall the food was very good & we enjoyed each meal we tried. The service on the 2nd night was better than the first. The prices are a bit high for what you get. The decor is a far stretch for a speak... More
