“Food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

My friend and I were on an overnight motorcycle ride on Skyline Drive in early fall, 2012. We stopped in Luray for the night and went to Speakeasy for dinner. We found it to be a quaint and very customer friendly restaurant and bar. Our meals were very good, the food was excellently prepared and more than enough. Our waitress, Dana, was very efficient. She was also very knowledible of the area and was happy to give us some pointers of things to do. Overall, we had a good time and would definitely go back (and ask for Dana to be our waitress again).

“Speakeasy's food did not speak well.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

My plate had no eye appeal whatsover. I ordered the yager schnitzel. It was a beige plate - the pork was sitting on top of mashed potatoes which ws topped sauerkraut. No color whatsoever.
The best part of the meal was seeing someone we hadn't seen in 15 years.

“A Great Place to Relax and Enjoy a Fine Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We had dinner and drinks at the Speakeasy during our stay at the Mimslyn Inn. Our server, Amber, was most friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and a good value. Jim, the senior bartender, made great drinks and shared many stories about the Inn and the Luray area.

Even if you don't stay at the Inn, the Speakeasy Tavern is a great choice.

“Live Music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Great place to gather for conversation and good music. Live music captures the mountain culture in a playful and pleasant way.

“Great food for a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I ate on the front portch and had the trout special - YUMMY collard greens and risotto. It was excellent! Very good service. One thing I would suggest is that the hotel come up with its own bread or biscuit recipe as something signature to serve all diners. I had to ask for bread and it was not baked on site I don't think. Also, the dessert menu needs to be expanded!
