I was fortunate enough to have eaten at Third Bay Cafe and wow was I amazed. Our setting was a private party and everyone enjoyed the food that they ordered. Especially the ribeye steak. Martinsville finally has a place that is woth going to.

Had dinner here without a reservation. They were able to seat me even though they were quite busy. Ordered the blackened Sea Bass with Asian Chutney. It was perfect. Sweet and a bit tangy. Perfect combination. Salad was fresh with local produce. Loved the homemade blue cheese dressing. Will return for sure.

I only had a take out meal so I cannot comment on the dining experience; however, from the looks of the other patrons, everyone looked like they were enjoying the experrince. Thanks to TA I popped in for a turkey club and it was excellent. The turkey looked like a Boars Head quality meat and the bread was definitely made... More

My brother and went to dinner here while we were in town visiting our Dad. Very unexpected meal as I remembered this location as an active auto service station. This was an excellent restaurant managed by friends from our childhood. Who knew that a small standalone venue could make it in Martinsville. I will certainly make a point of returning... More

Dinner and service was awesome. For starters, we had the mini crab cakes they were actually pretty big and definitely perfect for sharing. Tonight, I had the blackened salmon with cherry tomato glaze...It was amazing! It was cooked to perfection and the flavors were awesome!!! My sides included a salad, asparagus, and pimiento cheese grits. Everything I had was phenomenal... More

I started with a bottle of the Crane Lake Moscato wine, which was very good. I love a sweet white wine & this was perfect. I ordered the Ribeye for dinner & it was huge! I could only eat about half. I am a person that always has to have some kind of steak sauce, but it was not needed... More

I had not been to 3rd Bay in 10-15 years. So glad to know it was still there and delicious. We called ahead for a table for 6. We were warmly greeted and glad to see they had outdoor eating, too. We ate inside. Drinks and menus were quickly brought along with our orders. We decided to share desserts...delicious. All... More

If you want a real burger this is the place. You can choose your toppings. You will have to call ahead of time, but it's worth it. The burger is big enough to share with a friend . The Third Bay is small treasure in our town.

Food was very good, service was slow and food was pricey. Service staff were a bit snobby with my wife and I. Don't know why, but we will never go back there.
