My family ate here on a Saturday morning before attending a football game at Randolph Macon. We parked at the school and walked down to the restaurant which was a very nice and easy walk. The restaurant opened at 11 which is when we arrived and they were definitely ready for customers. The food was tasty and the waitress was... More

We frequently dine at in this great restaurant, as we can always count on good food, and excellent service. Tonite was no exception. We arrived around 6: 00 PM. and there was no wait for seating. We were greeted by one of the regular staff, and got a chance to glance at the menu. Our order was promptly taken, by... More

Read the reviews, glad I did! Would have probably gone to Cracker Barrel otherwise. Located in the historic area, the Trackside is a charming cafe, easy to find off of Rt95. The chicken salad sandwich was full of tasty chicken on delicious bread. The BarBQ pork sandwich was a good size and very flavorful. Both came with a choice of... More

We live in Richmond, VA and very seldom take time to drive to Ashland, VA and have lunch or dinner. We took a day off from work and spent the day browsing some of the local shops on the main street and then sat down to have lunch a the Trackside Grill at the suggestion of one of the local... More

Pass by the chains and head into the historic district for this cute cafe like restaurant in an old movie house. Food and service were both great. I agree with reviews of the French Dip- beef was melt in your mouth, and very tasty. It is a big sandwich, so you will likely not put a dent in your side.... More

The Trackside Cafe was recommended to us by our hotel. The food is home-style cooking and it is the only restaurant that we could find in Ashland that served a late afternoon full service meal (4:30-5:00 p.m.). A few others had bar service only at that time. The hostess was friendly, as was our waitress Mikala. We had full meal... More

First visit to Ashland, VA; traveling through to Washington, DC. Picked Trackside Grill b/c of lots of great reviews...well deserved! This place is a gem in an Americana quaint town. Menu choices are vast in appetizers, sandwiches, dinner salads, entrees and desserts. We ordered the Nachos with cheese served w/homemade salsa, sour cream, & guacamole . I had the French... More

Sunday Brunch is great. Haven't tried other times. The theme is double: train tracks, which Ashland is famous for, and the race course, which a lot of people don't know that 19th Century Ashland was famous for. Then there were the late 20th Century "Camptown Races" that no longer run. Check out Ashland History at ashlandmuseum.org and download the Ashland... More

We stop here on frequent trips to DC. Always good burgers and this time I tried the wings with mild buffalo sauce. They were good but I will try the hot buffalo sauce next time. Server was college student and was attentive. My wife had a burger which also was good, along with sweet potato fries.
