If you are in this area you absolutely must have breakfast here. The country ham is amazing. And ask for strawberry jam. They make it right there. Heavenly. My bride of 28 yrs had the omelette with shrimp, scallops and red peppers. It was fantastic too. And a really cool historic feel to the restaurant. Red brick and wood interior.... More

Stopped in for a late lunch. Greeted warmly by the servers and promptly served a beverage. Ordered something different.. the Fried Oyster Salad. It was excellent. Fresh greens with horseradish and topped with crispy, oysters. I could have ordered a double as an entree it was so good. Chef Shane is so talented. Virginias is a treat!

We stopped in for lunch the Friday after Thanksgiving. Very busy....but the staff was friendly and trying hard. We each had an Apple Salad.....one with shrimp and one with chicken. Very fresh and well done. A mint dressing. Outstanding. Cold and good. Again, very good service. Reasonably priced.

I made lunch reservations based on a few positive reviews. Our experience was not the best. The most positive part of the experience was the host who accommodated our early arrival and took us to a nice table. Our waiter poured water into my glass spilling a great deal onto my lap without apology. we were never offered beverages other... More

We enjoyed dinner on Thanksgiving Eve and we more than satisfied. We could not resist trying the appetizer Sawmill Poutine which was fries, cheese curds, sawmill gravy and scallions. It was so good and so rich. The sawmill gravy was outstanding. There were only two of us and I think this might be better suited to four. We enjoyed it... More

We have been to Virginia's several times and the menu was different from the last time. I love breakfast any time of the day and Virginia's fit the bill. The food was good and filling. The staff was wonderful. We went to lunch with family we had not seen in 40 years. They let us sit at our table with... More

We have been going to Virginia's since it opened. Love the food and atmosphere. New menu changes awful Miss old favorites. New She Crab Soup should be call something else. It is watery with little if any crab and lumps of boiled egg white. Who would consider changing the cream, roe, crab and sherry joy that is She Crab Soup.... More
