“Don't miss the Apple Fritters!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

If you have the opportunity to eat here you will enjoy yourself. Southern cooking is the name of the game here, so forget about calorie watching for the day and enjoy yourself. The chicken fried steak and gravey are not to missed, and the side to order is the Apple Fritters,

“Rural Place, Local people, good food”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Nothing to write home about but, if you are in Surry and hungry, this place will be fine. They have a large assortment of sandwiches and a couple of soups. Food is OK but the experience is good. They have many 'rules' which we fund humorous and appreciated... like no yapping on your cell phone... go outside and... don't allow your kids to go running around. You know... common courtesies that so many 'adults' do not have anymore.

“Fast Service, Good Food”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

I visited the Surrey House restaurant for lunch with 22 friends while on a tour of Surry County, Virginia. We had reservations for 1:15, but arrived at 1:45. We were trying to catch the 3:30 ferry from Surry to Jamestown, and I was afraid we wouldn't make it in time. I was wrong. Everyone ordered off the menu, selecting items from peanut soup and chef's salad to a full-course seafood dinner, and everything in between. Service was almost immediate - I don't understand how the staff there did what they did, but our meals arrived long before expected, and the food was very good. AND - we caught the ferry right on time! Bravo to the owners and staff!

“Great Lunch”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I took my elderly mother on the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry when she was visiting and then over for lunch at the Surrey House. They have the most fabulous she-crab soup!!!
If you have never had she-crab soup before make sure you take them up on their offer to taste before you order.
Their soup is very rich and a it spicy, just the way we like it.
The staff is very attentive and friendly.
