The vibe is definitely more bar than cafe. Burgers and sandwiches are excellent and the fries were delicious. The Virginia has a long history and she shows her age. If you are in the area looking for lunch in a restaurant that isn't a chain,...More

I really enjoyed the food and service here. The bartender/waitress was friendly and music not too loud that you had yell over it. Over all a very enjoyable lunch experience.

A business associate and I went there for lunch. We were very impressed at the architecture and old style decor. But the booth "bench" seats were uncomfortable, the menu was pretty limited, and the service was just okay. There weren't very many customers. I had...More
