“Angela's is just average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We went there on a Saturday evening on a whim. We were there when they first opened and 4 of us had a real bad experience. Every meal was different and every meal was terrible.
Anyway we decided to give it another try.

We ordered and had a pretty long wait. They were not overly crowded, but the waitress did come over and refresh our drinks. When the food came it was very hot and was okay. We ate all of it and didn't complain like we did the first time.

We might go back, but probably next year

“HARDLY THE "BEST"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Angela's has a billboard coming into town that says they are the best restaurant in St. Albans. Our experience (shared by many of our friends and relatives) is that they MAY be the best but only if you consider the St. Albans dining scene is awful in general. Angela's uses their banquet room as their primary dining venue. The atmosphere, tables, chairs and settings are like being at a banquet. The upper floors which have (or had) elegant eating areas in the past are not used. There is a bar but the servers have no idea what mixed drinks are, what kind of beer is available, etc. The food could almost come out of a frozen TV dinner acquired from the local Kroger store. Service is lacking. The food is expensive. Stay home. You'll have a better dining experience.

“Good Meeting/Rental Venue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This place is great if you need a rental venue, but as a straight restaurant it's lacking in almost every way. It's expensive, and the food is only so-so, I've honestly had better meals at McDonald's.

“Enjoy Enjoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

So enjoy going there because the setting is so nice. When make a reservation they try hard to place you where you want to be. Service is excellent . A great place to go with a group. The prices are great also. I wish I could go more often but we are so busy .
