Haven't been to "Xtra's" for quite a while now and so we thought we would go for an early dinner. It was early Saturday afternoon so we just walked in as we thought that would be a good time as we didn't have a reservation. I ordered the fish Tacos which had Grouper in them,honestly most places serve a little... More

It's easy to miss since the restaurant is on the 2nd floor, just above a bead store. I've gone here a number of times and haven't had a bad dish. There's a covered patio on the balcony. It's also a good place for happy hour with a good sized bar.

Decided to try this place since we knew one of the wait staff there. I had a crab cake sandwich and my wife had the crab & spinach salad. Both dishes came out promptly and they were not only very tasty, but generous in portion size. The atmosphere is relaxed and airy and the staff was friendly and courteous. The... More

We were meeting some friends from out of town for a Saturday evening meal. They like Carytown so they requested that I pick a place. I did a bit of research and found Xtra’s Café. Never had been there and never heard of it before. So after reading some reviews on various sights we decided on Xtra’s Café. What a... More

Had the chicken sandwich and the grilled caesar, bot were excellent. Service is good, cafe like atmosphere.....great for lunch or brunch....not handicapped friendly though (at least not that we saw, you might want to check before going).

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious New Year's Eve dinner at Xtra's Cafe. The restaurant is lovely. Our server was friendly and attentive. Another employee kept our water glasses filled and whisked our plates away when we were finished. When it came time for the check, our server offered to bring it then or after we sat awhile -...

Wow fantastic fish tacos and sweet potato fries. Good service. Many choices in this Cary-town location. Upstairs and enjoy. Has a balcony seating area too. Fun place and accommodating with slight changes. Appears to have full bar. I would go back.

This is a hidden gem in Carytown. I stumbled onto this place after a river city food tour. We were given black bean chili fries. Very good. Presentation and portion excellent. I will definitely go back and try more menu items.

Visiting Richmond, we stopped by the Carytown area to shop and look around. A local shop owner directed us to Xtra's Cafe, where we had an entirely fine lunch. We sat on the covered second floor deck, looking over Cary Street, nice breeze, cool drinks - wonderful. The staff was attentive and the atmosphere nice (see photos). We liked the... More
