“A little expensive for what you get, but good food and friendly service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We stopped at Food & Friends for lunch on our trip to Lewisburg and were pretty happy with our experience.

We had a bit of a wait at the door, looks like this place is always busy, but nothing too terrible. It gave us time to check out their case full of chocolates... uh-oh!

Once sat, I appreciated our table lodged into a little nook of the main drag of the restaurant, nice and private and helped to keep the sound from the other customers nice and low.

We perused the menu, mostly sandwiches and salads, and decided to get an app to go along with our sandwich order. We got the stuffed mushrooms and they were exactly what I think of when someone says stuffed mushrooms, which was perfect! Very tasty!

Our salads that come with the sandwiches were small, but nice, and our sandwiches were made of quality ingredients and tasted very good.

The prices were high, especially for a small town, but not completely outrageous, and like I said, the food was good and fresh, so we weren't put off by it too much. Our lunch of two iced teas, two sandwiches, and an order of stuffed mushrooms came to about $35 before tip.

We then of course had to buy some chocolates on the way out, which were very expensive, but also good.

“AMEN!!! <3”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

I went there for lunch as a first timer and was VERY impressed. The meal was DELICIOUS! I got "the hickory" panini sandwich... <Probably the best sandwich I've ever had!!!> Consisting of turkey, bacon, cheddar, muenster, lettuce, tomato, and BBQ sauce on sourdough, the flavors complemented each other PERFECTLY. Also reccomended is the lasagna. Service was great and waiter, Shaun, was very helpful. Great Bon Bons, too. LOVED IT!!! :)

“Good Food but slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

My family stopped by Food and Friends during the week of July 4th. The family of 7 were seated in the back. We had a 4 yr old with us. She ordered a grilled cheese. All food was finally brought to the table except for hers--they told us the cook had forgot about her sandwich. She had to wait for her food. I thought this was very poor on the restuarant's part. She should have been served first. The food was very good but did not like the service.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

The oyster dinner is to die for...I added a couple of seafood apps too. Ask for Pat, she is a great waitress. Go early or call for reservations since it is always crowded.

“wonderful food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

The town of Lewisburg is thoroughly enjoyable with great shopping and antiques. We asked two of the local merchants to recommend a place for dinner. They suggested "Food and Friends" as their local favorite and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious. We will return......
