We went here last night for a family dinner. Our server was Chris, and his professionalism and knowledge exceeded expectations. We had a vegetarian diner as well as one with a gluten allergy - and not only were all their special needs managed, they were tended to with a degree of conscientiousness and courtesy that exceeded anything I have ever...

The location an old produce exchange building made for an interesting setting. The service was very good. The food was as well. The steaks were prepared as ordered. They offer a variety of rubs for the steaks. The house rub was a bit stronger than I expected, but it was still delicious. The duck fat fries were awesome!

These people never disappoint! The food was as exceptional as usual, and the service was great! These folks know how to make you feel at home, and give you great value for the quantity of food, as well as the atmosphere. We were there with three other couples, and the service was wonderful, with a minor glitch as we waited... More

This is a great place for fine dining in Harrisonburg, upscale but not too "stuck-up". I had filet mignon, the pimento cheese grits, and a seasonal mixed drink, and all were wonderful. Service is good. Only downside is that it seems a little loud. There isn't much parking available, but they do offer valet parking. The county office building is... More

Best meal ever, my husband had the duck. First time ever having duck and will get again. I had the filet mignon and it was prepared very much to my liking. Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and what goes with what. What a great atmosphere as well. Great night.

This is a very nice place for upscale dining. The waiter Cory was great. The food came out rather quick. My husband had a porterhouse steak and risotto and he said it was delicious. I had a trio of vegetables. There's really not a whole lot to choose from the menu for vegetarians. The chefs veggie special was cooked spinach... More

As a child, the wife remembers this building being the place were farmers went to buy their feed. Now it is an upscale restaurant. Where we live, the nice steakhouse is Perry's. We go there a lot. We found that the local chop and grill house was comparable to Perry's, and in some ways better. The difference is it cost... More

We traveled 500 miles to eat at this restaurant! We were en route from Atlanta headed north and needed a place to break the journey and spend the night - after much research on trip advisor I found this restaurant so we booked a hotel nearby. What a huge disappointment it turned out to be. Cheese platter to start. Don't... More

I was looking for a nice place to go out to dinner with a business associate. I found the best place. We were to be seated at a table and it was too close to another party, the hostess happily moved us to another table. The atmosphere was perfect, a little background music, not loud surroundings and the correct amount... More
