Stopped in here while staying in Staunton, Virginia. I had heard about the place and decided to give it a try. We both had the Baked 1/2 chicken along with 2 sides each. I will say for the money and the atmosphere it isn't bad. The Chicken was done to our liking, but the sides left a lot to be... More

We heard about Mrs Rowe's good food and service - so we had to try it. We stopped for a late lunch and it was like we were invited into someone's home - friendly, interested and accommodating. The restaurant had plenty of seats available, but we didn't stick out. We had the hot turkey and meatloaf with gravy on white... More

Good food (but not as good as some years ago). Closes early (8:00 pm). Lady at front register was abrupt and unfriendly.

Lo, these many years have passed since we stopped at Mrs. Rowe's Restaurant and Bakery, attracted in those days by the "best pies" sign. This time, we think we should have continued up the interstate, which is conveniently close. Now mind you, the same silver-haired crowd was there and didn't look a year older. Or were those different geezers and... More

I'm not usually one to order a burger when eating out, but I tried the southern burger & really liked it, mess & all. I barely had room for dessert, but I can't say no to homemade apple pie. Only negative was that our server wasn't very friendly.

Popular local spot with nice variety of cuisine. No problems with our meal though it seemed that some other groups did have problems as we could see them complain. Saw some groups come in just for the dessert (pies), but we didn't have room after dinner. They did serve yummy rolls along with the meal. We would try it again... More

Stopped here on way home from Charlottesville. This place has been around since 1947. It is a reall down home cooking place and looks like a local favorite. The food was very good and the pies looked amazing.

Food was average although the pies looked great! Service was slow but very friendly. Many local folks in there so it is popular.

I grew up eating here and my aunt used to work there too and I hadn't been back for years. Just as I remembered, it was noon on Sunday, so things can get hectic, even though it slowed down, he barely got refills, but I understood, I saw the crowd upon entering. Food is great, sweet tea is great, apple... More
