“Reasonable Diner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This restaurant was convenient to our hotel and offered a discount to guest of the hotel. The meals were average diner fare, quite ample portions and filled our requirement for the evening. Service was friendly, albeit a bit distracted at times. A manager or one of the owners came by to check on our table, which was a nice touch. Under the same circumstances, we would visit again.

“Nice family style”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

I had fried chicken livers which were the best I have ever tried. They were lightly fried and very tender. My husband though ordered spegetti and he was not pleased. It did not look like sauce, and did not taste very good. Other than that it is a nice family style restaurant, with very nice owners/managers.

“"It Hasn"t Changed"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I am a local and for years the "Belle Meade" restaurant was the place to go. It changed ownership was re-named Pano's. A great location on route 11 (Main Street) and just off interstate 81, good parking and a nice banquet room/bar. Recent remodeling has helped but it is still very dated. The menu is very complete and reasonably priced. My wife and I have purposely avoided this restaurant for years because sadly the food and service had gone "downhill". We decided to try it again because of a reunion we were invited to in the banquet. room. (We ate in the main restaurant 9/15/12 at 8:30 p.m.) Playing it safe we ordered the "prime rib" special, baked potato & cole slaw. The rolls were straight out of the package and not even warm, I think the baked potato was a day old, the slaw good and the prime rib ordered medium was served very rare, luke-warm and swimming on a plate of "salty brine". The service was good. We didn't complain but it will be years again before we go back. There are much better restaurants in the Harrisonburg area.

“Good Value, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

For a holiday weekend this was not a very crowded restaurant. The service was good, the food was delicious and serving were a good size. Even adults could order off the children's menu if you didn't have a large appetite.

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

The only thing worse than the service was the food. I ordered a Reuben. The corned beef was so bad on the first bite most of it came out of the sandwich. The beef was like leather, thick & tough. The french fries tasted like they were sitting in the kitchen for quite a while. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing but that is no excuse for poor food quality
