The waitress that my husband and I had was wonderful. She had an amazing personality. The food was so very good. The desserts where amazing. I will be back again, when visiting Staunton.

Nice place to eat in and their carry-outs are wonderful when you're on the go. It's located in a great area where hotels are. The food is delicious and the staff is friendly and helpful. The restaurant is clean and plenty of room for large family gathering. It's located off interstate 81.

Pulled off the freeway and there it was. Parking lot was huge and packed; a good sign of good food. Found out there was a hospital employees reunion, which took up one huge room. Waited only a few minutes for a table. Service was efficient; food selection was excellent. I learned this restaurant has been here since the 1940's, and... More

Mrs. Rowe's is a good little restaurant right off I-81. It proved a great spot to take a break from our travels for a nice Sunday supper. Menu is varied with a good selection of sandwiches, burgers and some great dinners. Unfortunately for us, by the time we arrived at 5:00 pm they were out of many of their dinner... More

Was recommended as being pretty good. It was more like just ok. Pleasant and inviting. Was acknowledged by cashier, waited to be seated a few minutes. Nice waitress. Coffee hot and good. Very disappointed with our meals. My husband's pancakes were far from fluffy. They were hard, dry, heavy, & cold. My eggs were not scrambled. They were turned into... More

Had breakfast , It wasn't memorable The staff was polite and professional. They seemed to be be better at catering and baking pies than breakfast . I'm a southern man and the biscuits were disappointing after that there is no saving breakfast. Said bakery but no fresh biscuits

While traveling back from the DC area we stopped for lunch at Mrs. Rowe's Restaurant and Bakery and we are glad we did. If you stop by on Sunday be there between 11:30am and noon because once church lets out its standing room to get a seat. We ordered the fried chicken with mac & cheese and turnip greens. all...

We had eaten at Mrs. Rowe's years ago when we lived in Waynesboro. We were traveling I-81 and decided to get off and eat here. I had the chicken salad sandwich which came with chips and a side. I chose green beans for my side. Everything was really good. My Mom had the vegetable plate. She liked the macaroni and... More

Arrived at 6:45pm. Server took our tea and dinner order at the same time at 7:00pm. Was served tea OK. After one trip to ask check on us, did not see her for a long time. Around 7:45pm, I asked another server to find my waitress. I was ready to tell her to forget the dinners and we were just... More

I've eaten here many times and the food can always be counted on to be average or above. However, had the daily special hamburger steak Monday night and found it to be a highly processed item full of fat. Certainly not made from scratch or worthy of being served at Rowes. Absolutely, the worst hamburger steak I've ever had. I'll... More
