“Good Food but slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

My family stopped by Food and Friends during the week of July 4th. The family of 7 were seated in the back. We had a 4 yr old with us. She ordered a grilled cheese. All food was finally brought to the table except for hers--they told us the cook had forgot about her sandwich. She had to wait for her food. I thought this was very poor on the restuarant's part. She should have been served first. The food was very good but did not like the service.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The oyster dinner is to die for...I added a couple of seafood apps too. Ask for Pat, she is a great waitress. Go early or call for reservations since it is always crowded.

“wonderful food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The town of Lewisburg is thoroughly enjoyable with great shopping and antiques. We asked two of the local merchants to recommend a place for dinner. They suggested "Food and Friends" as their local favorite and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious. We will return......

“good food, bad service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We came here three years ago and it took two hours to get our entre. We thought it must have been an unusual situation. The food was very good. But by the time we got it we were quite annoyed.
We tried it again today and it took one and a half hours to get our entee. Better than last time when it took over two hours.
While it is a nice place with good food, it is not a place to wait hours to get served.
Maybe thegreat rating they have from trip advisor customers has made it overwhelming for them to provide adequate service for the large volume of customers.
It is a shame because even if the food and prices are good, it is irrelevent if you get frustrated waiting to be served.
I wish them well,but we will not come back.

We are very sorry to hear that you had a bad dinning experience at Food & Friends. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and are working to improve this issue. We strive to provide our guests with the best service and minimal wait times; however, large groups can slow down our small kitchen staff, which will affect the rest of our guests.We sincerely hope the next time you're in Lewisburg you'll give us one more chance.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I have eaten there twice recently and both times I have enjoyed what I have eaten. The desserts are to die for. They are a little on the high side but I am used to McDonald's prices, but over all I really can't complain. The service has been good.
