“Tender steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2011

After living in Iowa and Texas I have high expectations of a steak and this place measured up! My ribeye was delicious and the large baked sweet potato made for a very filling meal and I enjoyed every bit of it. The friendly staff was just a bonus to me.

“Good "home cooked" Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2011

This was a rare find along the interstate 95 corridor in Lumberton, NC. You can choose between a well prepared buffet or menu items. Don't pass up the "pot roast" because it is very good and tender. We chose the buffet and enjoyed it immensely. The food was all tasteful and filling. There was a great variety of items and food was fresh.

“Great Restaurant with very friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2010

Our visit to the Village Station was wonderful! We have stayed in Lumberton before and wanted to visit another restaurant, this one was number 1 on Trip Advisor and our hotel desk agreed. We were greeted by a lively hostess. We arrived around 5:30, but by 6:30 the place was very busy. Our waitress, Leslie, was the most pleasant young lady. She obviously loves her job and enjoys being around and waiting on people. She was a true gem for this establishment. The prices are wonderful and the food was very good. They also have or did have on the Friday night we were there, a food bar. It looked great, but we normally stick to menu items so we don't over indulge. This is a lovely restaurant and must visit if you are passing in or staying near Lumberton. Thank you Leslie for a wonderful visit to The Village.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2010

We arrived at a local hotel and asked the staff to recommend a non-chain restaurant. Without hesitation we were told The Village Station was the place for us. We arrived at the restaurant and were happy to see the parking lot was full, always a good sign. We entered the restaurant and were greeted with "Welcome to the Village Station, we will have a table for you shortly." The atmosphere was casual and friendly with Southern charm. We waited in a very clean and well appointed area. After a brief wait we were seated. We opted for the Southern Style Buffet. We did inspect prior to ordering. The buffet was in excellent condition, clean and well stocked. We loaded up our dishes and began to enjoy. I can say, without question, this was the finest restaurant we have ever encountered on the I95 corridor from Virginia to Florida. The food was of high quality, made with care and very, very delicious. Everything on the buffet was GREAT and we truly enjoyed. We now stop at this restaurant every time we are in the area. This place is well managed; the food was great and the staff friendly. We thank all persons involved in making our restaurant experience so wonderful. It is rare to find such a tremendous experience during travel. We found nothing not to like. KUDOS to The Village Station Restaurant. Highly Recommended by this traveler.

“Terrific Food in a Very Popular Restaurant Near I-95"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2010

The menu was quite varied and the quality of the rib-eye sandwich and the Roast Beef a jus sandwiches was high. The service was very friendly, if a bit slow due to huge Sunday crowd. It was well worth the short wait.
