“Touristy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Restaurants did not have good ratings....check urbanspoon.com to find much better places to eat such as Local Roots, Blue Apron, Cuban Island, Pop's. Hard to find parking and the parking garages are expensive. The Saturday morning market is fun and had fruit and vegetable vendors along with local soap makers.

“When in downtown Roanoke this is the place to go.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

This is not a specific business but a section of downtown where most the Roanoke's nightlife is. Good collection of restaurants with a lot of diversity. It's clean and safe and parking is usually not too bad.
