The restaurant had one of the best service in the resort and some real down home cooking. The portions are HUGE so do not make the mistake f ordering a meal per person like the table next to us had done. Although the servers describe to you the style of the restaurant people still seem to order a lot of food. We ordered the fried chicken, the Mac and Cheese and the riblets with a side of veg. Yes it is expensive to pay $24 for a Mac and cheese bowl, half of which is not eaten but welcome to Atlantis!

We found Virgil's while on the hunt to find decent wings since the Atlas Bar & Grill was closed in the casino since our last visit to Atlantis.

The wings are good (very rich, smokey), but not the Atlas Bar & Grill style! We also had the crab cakes, which were awesome. That was our first of 4 meals at Virgil's during our stay.

The second meal we tried was the barbecued chicken with a side of grilled vegetables. Honestly there was enough food for 4-5 people, and it was just the two of us! The vegetables were a good selection and were nicely cooked - still crisp! However, we were disappointed with the chicken - it was much too dry / overcooked for our liking.

Our third try we decided to go back to the starters menu and had the ribs (very good) and trainwreck fries - OMG - best fries we have ever eaten!! We couldn't finish them, so we had the rest packaged up to take to our teenage son who devoured them. He loved them so much, we went back on our last night at the resort to have them again.

My husband and I shared a piece of key lime pie. Definitely the best key lime pie we have ever eaten.!!

However, what made Virgil's special for us was the server we had up in the bar section for three of our meals - Rony! He was very attentive and entertaining. He told us that he loves his job, and it shows in the high quality of his service.

First off, we tried to get into Virgil's one night and it was closed for a private function, the next night we went it was pretty busy. We decided to use our Taste of Atlantis pass, which can only be used at the bar. there were just enough seats available for our group. We received a sample plate of trash riblets (only 2 tiny ribs) and a beer. The beer was good, however, the ribs were overcooked and we only got 1 tiny riblet each. The only thing that made our experience at Virgil’s one to remember was the wonderful bartender. I regretfully did not get his name. He entertained us for the 2 hours we were there. He was super friendly.

We had dinner at Virgil's, good and a lot of food. Don't order too much as the plates are made to be shared.

Good place to go with large groups. Very large family portion sizes on everything. We over ordered quantity wise which is very easy to do. Chicken dish was very good, ribs were average, not very tender. Atmosphere is very casual so good for young kids.
