Had lunch here and was shocked that servers were not wearing masks. The had them warming their necks! Food was Okay but nothing special. Will not return to a place not placing value on customer's health.

Between the Cobb salad and steak triple cheese, hands down they have the best in town! Love it here, and the girls make the experience even better. Great stop on the way through to the lake!

This restaurant is the bomb.com. They have so many options on the menu to choose from. And not only that, they have healthy menu options too. It’s very family orientated and the service was amazing. Highly recommend

We were only in Virginia for one night and stayed right next door so we walked over. It was about half full. We sat at a table in the bar area and we got our menus right away. Our waitress was excellent. She was patient...with us as we decided what to eat and drink. Made recommendations when we asked, was really personable. I ordered the Steak Triple Cheese sandwich which was yummy! The waitress recommended getting a side of au jus with it and I agreed. It was great. The beef was super tender and tasty. My partner ordered a BBQ Chicken Bacon Melt which he said tasted really good. We had a good meal and good service here.More

The place was almost empty yet we could not get a waitress to our table for over 20 minutes. The food took forever. However the chicken wings were pretty good once they showed up. Drinks also sat empty for long periods.More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm sincerely sorry to hear that you were let down by our service. I completely understand how frustrated you must have felt waiting over 20 minutes for a waitress. Normally our service is much more...More

I’m unsure why this place is so popular? We waited about 10-15mins as waitresses passed by and never acknowledged us. Finally flagged down the hostess (who was very nice and apologetic) and she took our order and brought out our food. But for the rest...of our visit, nobody even stopped by our table? Our meals weren’t great, and the menu is very overpriced. The hostess was the only nice part of our time there. If given the option, eat somewhere else.More

So you get your own food and drinks, service is minimal & sometimes non-existant (we waited for 10 minutes and not one waitress came by) it has its fans but count me and my family out. The pizza is not okay and the drinks are...above market price. An utter mystery about its so-called mystique.More
