“Horrible service.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

We had a party of 7 people we were sat at 7pm & by 9pm our food hadn't even been started. We asked the waitress about it & was told the grill was backed up. After we said something to her about the manager not even coming to speak to us the manager finally came & apologized but didn't offer to comp any food or drinks & told us our food hadn't even been started. We finally told him we wanted our check & don't worry about the food. He said sorry & still didn't offer to comp a drink or appetizer. The waitress did the best she could but the management was a sorry excuse. Would not return.

“Homemade Food in a Cozy Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Unbelievable value and huge portions! Wonderful menu offering homemade pastas, steaks, hamburgers, gourmet salads and desserts. Handmade chocolates for sale in the front of the restaurant. Simple wine list. Great service. Perfect for lunch or dinner. On the main street in downtown historic Lewisburg.

“Good food but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here for dinner on the first night of our vacation. I had the steak, baked potato, vegetables and salad. My husband had the fried oysters, mashed potatoes, vegetables and soup. We had cheese fries for an appetizer and bread pudding for dessert. Our entrees were delicious. I'd put that steak up against any steakhouse out there. It was spot on. My husband grew up on the Eastern Shore and said the oysters were the best he's had. He liked the dessert but I thought it was chewy and tough. Soup and salad were standard. We also bought some chocolate before we left. The food was wonderful but the price was really high for what they served in all fronts. And I wasn't crazy about the chocolate either. I would definitely recommend this place but with a caution sticker about the price.

“My family love this place!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The atmosphere is nice, food is good, but service is normally slow. The crab dip is my son's and husband's favorite. My son makes a meal out of this appetizer. The chocolates at the front counter are good but expensive. Tip: If going on the weekend make sure to make reservations. Better to go during the week or early afternoon.

“Something for Everyone!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Food and Friends is a great family restaurant located right in downtown Lewisburg. They have a wide variety of food options on their menu so everyone will leave happy. They also have a display of chocolates, truffles, and hand dipped pretzels that you can purchase on your way out.
