“Nothing special.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I were expecting a little more as we walked in. The entrance belies the country diner that lies within. We seated ourselves and we eventually noticed by the waitress. We browsed the menu and decided on what we would consider our harder to mess up choices, a steak an a burger. We also elected to get a glass each of the listed Zinfandel. Our server brought out two glasses of white Zinfandel and then returned a short time later with our meals. The food was prepared as we ordered and was plentiful. The steak was not the best cut of beef but was still flavorful. The burger was a typical burger and nothing to brag about or shame.
Overall, the meal was average though a little overpriced. The service was nothing special and could easily be judged as either a plus because we weren't hounded or a minus because we were practically ignored. I'm sure that if you are a regular the atmosphere is much more apealling.

“Worst place in Purcellville”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

My husband went here for our date night. Very dirty place. One waitress was clapping and singing randomly and the other was unclean and kept the bill book in the back of her waistband of her pants (so unsanitary). Food was small and expensive. I could've gone to The Mill for what I paid for lousy food.

“just say no to "deep fried rock fish filets"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

first time here. one other table taken. waitress wasn't familiar with the beer selection, but that is pretty much par. NO VIRGINA WINES ON THE MENU, which is really odd given the selection in the area.

To cut to the chase, we had the fish and chips, which is further described as above. Overpriced at $15, but not a biggie. The biggie was four fish sticks. Have seen them described in other reviews as Costco like, but that would be generous. Not a foul place, but certainly overpriced given the other choices in Purcellville.

Waitress seemed unsurprised at our opinion of the place.

“The "Cheers" of Purcellville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

My husband and I go here about once a week. We love the food and we love the people that work here and also frequent the establishment. We always have fun! They have several great nightly specials and we've taken advantage of them all at one time or another. Karaoke on Friday nights can be a lot of fun.

“Bad food in a mediocre atmosphere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We've been to Mosby's several times now, and each time we say "let's give it one more shot." Each time, we're just as dissapointed as the last. The food is bland and flavorless, and it takes a long time to come out, despite the fact that the restaurant is almost always empty. I'd recommend heading a few doors down to the wing place, or up the street to either Magnolias or Anthonys.
