Stopped here with kids for lunch on the way home after a long weekend. Excellent menu variety, great service, good prices. We all enjoyed the meal.

My wife and I first discovered Blue Ridge Cafe when we were preparing to move to the Charlottesville area. At this point, we have lived in Ruckersville for nearly 4 years and BRC is our "go to" when we want to dine out locally. The...food is always very good and they have a great variety on the menu. The staff is friendly and courteous. And, even through Covid, they are figuring out a way to continue serving the community, not simply with the restaurant being open, but in continuing traditions (like Thanksgiving dinner). If you are in the area, you owe it to yourself to give BRC a chance to earn your repeat business!More

Blue Ridge Cafe has it all, comfortable dining, excellent service, large selection on an extensive menu, and of course consistently fabulous food! You can't go wrong choosing to go to Blue Ridge Cafe. After your first visit, you will be hooked, and return time and...time again. We drive an hour and a half (one direction) to eat at this delightful establishment, and have never been disappointed!More

Came to eat lunch and watch football game. Had beef nachos, which was very good, but cheese cools quickly, which makes it difficult to pick up with soft nachos. Plenty of meat, cheese in them-very good. In watching games, it would be nice to have...some type of set up to hear your game as well. Connect with bluetooth phone and ear buds, or something similar that works well.More

Due to the wedding dinner that was in the back, it appeared that the front staff was shorted as it took long to get drink refills and acknowledgement from the staff. Also, they have changed their menu due to covid and their quiche is not...on it :-(More

Absolutely great place to eat. The food was wonderful and everything was fresh and hot. The staff was prompt and friendly. Clean restrooms and a comfortable place to smoke outside away from other's. We will definitely be visiting again.

We ate at Blue Ridge Cafe this past week for the first time at lunch. Our salads were crisp and fresh and our meal was as ordered and was delicious. Will definitely go back again and glad that this place definitely deserves additional visits.

The wife and i were looking for a place to eat and this caught my eye at the last minute. We had the fried fish, all was excellent and good portions. I usually don't like coleslaw but after tasting my wife's I ordered one more...side for me. To bad this place is about 3.5 hours away from where I live! Oh and the service came with what probably was a smile under that mask!More

We stopped in for a refreshment and a light bite. The Old Fashion was truly the worst cocktail I've ever ordered. I can make a decent one at home. Then came the Reuben. Perfect amounts of sauerkraut, dressing, gooey/stretchy cheese, and house cooked corned beef,...not deli slivers! The brisket was lean, tender and seasoned so we'll. Then comes the bread. OMG. Seeded rye,lightly buttered, crisp so every bite there is a crunch. It was sliced just thick enough to contain all the goodness. I'm going back before I leave this state. Oh, btw, my BF said his dirty martini was yuck.More

I think it's around $30. All you have to do is Google the restaurant and they should have their Easter menu up - or Google them, find a phone number and ask. Their Easter Buffet is to die for!!!
