Great place right off of campus - food was excellent, service was great, and it was a good value. Definitely will go again. I loved the vegetarian brunswick stew! Would have had lunch there again but went there around 1pm on Saturday to find out that they only serve breakfast on Saturdays till 2pm then they close - so keep... More

We have been to Gillie's twice when visiting Blacksburg, once for dinner and a few days ago for breakfast. Dinner was very good and motivated us to come back, but breakfast is what motivated me to write this review. We all ordered something different and I love how they have classic favorites and really cool combinations packed with flavor. I... More

Vegan, vegetarian, and fresh local fish, across the street from Virginia Tech on College Ave. Great vibe.

Happened by this place yesterday, and took notice when there was quite a line/crowd waiting to get in. It got me interested, and as I was alone, I walked in to see if there was a counter where I may sit. There was. Well, sat down, had no idea what this place was about, and got the cup of coffee...

While the food has always tasted good, I just can't bring myself to go back. It is usually a toss up if you will get a pleasant waitperson, the person who takes and calls names has never been particularly pleasant(more than one person) The attitude and almost rude comments has helped me make my decision to spend my hard earned...

Delicious vegetarian and seafood. I love the southern style catfish and grits. Flavored are excellent and some dishes are quite creative. Plenty of healthy options. Good wine list and specials on bottles some nights. Only complaint: service can be rather slow. Not just the food getting out of the kitchen (which I don't mind when it's cooked to order) but...

Gillie's is one of our favorite and regular restaurants in Blacksburg. I'm always amazed that many Blacksburg regulars think of it only as a student restaurant because of its casual decor and downtown location. However, their salads, their homemade soups and their dinner entrees guarantee that you always get freshly prepared and well-seasoned dishes. Their salmon is always delicious. I've... More

Not very busy around noon on a Saturday, which surprised us. The staff was either eating or standing around drinking coffee. Took forever to get our food and we had to ask twice for a cup of coffee, no refills on water. Since no one ever came by, they certainly didn't notice we were finished and I had to chase... More
