We had a delightful luncheon here. The food was locally produced, nicely prepared and served by a young lady who clearly enjoyed working. The renovation of the building was all tastefully done. We'll stop by here on a future trip. I had never had blackberry...More

Located in an old warehouse, we like the rustic atmosphere and the roomy dining areas. Food is casual but good, service with the usual SW Va friendliness. Right off the interstate, easy access and parking.
