Superb restaurant! My daughter had enjoyed their cuisine previously and knew the excellence. She treated me to Pan Seared Lemon Mint Salmon over Parmesan Risotto with Julianne Vegetables. Could have licked the plate, it was so good! She also had a Ceasar Salad and I...More

Try the salmon or cheeseburger! Salads also fresh. Reliably great food and attentive bartenders! Desserts also delish.

We make this a regular stop when we're visiting VIR. Great food - especially for the location and price - and great service. We typically eat at the bar and have had consistently good experiences over the last year.

Nice place with interesting decor. The food, when it came, was very good. However, the fact that only a brunch menu was available was not mentioned on the website and so was a surprise. The server was kind of out of it. She brought a...More

We had reservations for 12:30 and were seated almost immediately. So, we've been sitting now for 40 (FORTY)minutes and all we've had is iced tea...and a refill on tea. No food. Interesting that today, they only have 2 salads, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts in...More

I'm not aware of any separate menu. I recommend a call to the restaurant to arrange for a room for your party if there will be more than 5 or 6 people.

Do you have a party room that can be reserved (roughly 40 people or less)? I am in search of two locations in Danville to host two small scale events (75th birthday party and Mother's Day dinner). Searching a little early because I unfortunately will only be in town around Christmas. My plan is to have the logistics for these two events finalized upon my departure (for invitational and scheduling purposes). I am willing to pay a deposit to guarantee accommodations. Anticipated party is as follows: 75th birthday party on 5/13/17 @6:30 and Mother's Day dinner on 5/14/17 @2:30.

Yes they do have two rooms available for groups, but I'm not sure if they will accommodate that big of a party. I would suggest that you call them to find out. I've been to large events where they have catered the food and... More

The restaurant usually has cake, made by a local person, and with advance notice you might be able to get a special cake for a birthday. In the past, there has been a charge for serving a cake brought by the customers. You... More
