Our friends moved to Virginia and found this restaurant that we are all addicted too. The service is great and food is awesome. Everything we have tried has been great. I personally tried the chicken alfredo, potato cheese soup, dogwood trio, and salad bar. I loved all of it. I have heard the onion soup is great too.

I live inside the lake near Dogwood and love stopping by after work or meeting some friends later for a nice cold beer. Few pool tables, different events, bar/lounge separated from the dining area. It's my favorite local hangout spot and the bartenders, Julie and Jim are always on point!

If your are looking for a 5 star restaurant this is not it. BUT at the dogwood the food is delicious. Mike the owner and his staff make it a pleasant environment and a fun place to be. Weather it's on the restaurant side or the bar side you can always find a game on the TV and leave happy... More

We like to eat there (especially the hamburgers, which are terrific), but we hesitate to go there at times because it needs someone to really clean it up and make it look more appealing, particularly at the entrance. The salad bar needs better lighting also.

I always enjoy the salad bar, but there are lots of other things I like at the Dogwood - great burgers and chicken wings - and don't forget to check out the specials!

We've been going to Dogwood since 2003. Their hamburgers, shrimp fajitas and black & blue steak salad are great. All the staff are terrific, but ask for Melissa or Candy for excellent service. One quibble: they've started a craft beer emphasis and stopped serving some favorite beers on tap. Boo.

If they gave the salmon BLT, get it! Service is fine, prices are good. Normal place for lunch and to meet the sherif.

We have been to Dogwood numerous times. The food is good, the service excellent. Can be a little noisy.
