“A Bit Better than Average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The other reviews are right. The owner walks around drinking red wine and visits the customers. He wants everyone to be happy. The food is very good for the area. Seafood risotto was good but it was more like seafood stew with the amount of broth on top. My soft shelled crabs only 1 of the 3 had legs and 1 of them was burned black. So order cautiously, better to stick with items that are hard to mess up.

“Worth a return to Lewisburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

One of our best meals on our 2 week road trip. The owner actively runs the front end of the restaurant, greeting, and interacting with clients. He suggests wine, talks about the food. We were new folks, but he treated us like old friends. During the visit, it was obviously that the restaurant is strongly supported by the locals. He knew many of them and their likes/dislikes and we heard him make suggestions, etc.

Food is very nicely seasoned. Interesting combinations that are successful. Meals do not come with "soup or salad" but are large and we took portions of our entrees back to hotel with us (lucky us, had fridge and micro there).

For some reason my TomTom had a problem finding the location, but it is actually right on the corner just off the main drag -- when you see the front you see stairs - but there is a handicap accessible walkway accessed from the driveway of the muni parking lot just next door.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

I had the filet and it was one of the best steaks that I have had in quite a while. The decor in the restaurant is filled with pictures taken by the owner.

“West Virginia's Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

I have eaten in this restaurant for at least 15 years and having a second home in the area do so quite often. For my personal experience there isn't another public restaurant anywhere that has been as consistently good as Julians. I am not limiting that complement to Lewisburg or or West Virginia.
The food is excellent, wine selection superior and atmosphere very relaxing. I particularly like the availability of 1/2 bottles as it allows everyone to enjoy their favorite without compromising on a selection.
