My wife and I stayed at one of the Cabins next door, and this restaurant was obviously a convenient choice. Over 3 days, we ate here 4 times! Twice for Breakfast, and twice for Dinner. Service was always friendly and the food was always good and not super expensive. If you're looking for a "cookie-cutter" commercial/chain restaurant, this isn't for you. If you're looking for a "Family-Oriented", down-home style, country kitchen, this is the place for you!!

So glad we stopped here! This is an excellent local restaurant. The service is both fast and friendly. The menu is huge, with local favorites. Home made breads. The food was excellent, we went there twice on our short weekend trip it was so good.

Had breakfast at Brookside this morning. Food was just OK...but would have been a whole lot better if the waitress had spent more time attending to our table as opposed to yakking with some guy near the cash register. Food arrived lukewarm after quite a wait. Waitress didn't feel the need to ask if we needed anything after finally delivering the food. Was everything OK? Did we want more coffee? etc. Didn't happen. She became friendly at tip time when she brought the check. We were one of three occupied tables in the whole place...so there was no excuse for the neglect. Got the distinct impression that she assumed we were tourists, not the case...live in the area and most likely will not be back. Two eggs and country ham with potatoes and toast were 8.50 an omellete was 8.75...too high to put up with lukewarm food and awful service.

This place is quiet and feels like home. We had a wonderful server Martha, super sweet. I got a roasted turkey sandwich with Gravy and stuffing, very good. Everything is fresh!

We are a local group who get together for a monthly drive somewhere within a two hour radius to have lunch. Several of our members had eaten here before and everyone agreed it is an excellent place to go as a small group. The wait staff are very cordial and go out of their way at being "home-style friendly". It is hard to find a place to please everyone, but our group of ten agreed that this was a very enjoyable lunch. There was a choice between the menu or a steaming hot buffet and they even serve breakfast all day long. Our group seemed half and half menu/buffet, The buffet was changed several times while we ate and as we were in a slow and leisurely mode we enjoyed the variety. The owners came by and introduced themselves and seemed genuinely concerned that we were having an enjoyable experience. Most of our group have traveled extensively around the country, and even internationally, and have a lot of experience to draw upon in rating restaurants. All agreed this is a "great little local place"! In addition to the restaurant, there is a gift shop with a good selection of "local treasures" reflecting the Shenandoah Valley area. They also have a selection of cabins which have been renovated and overlook the rambling brook which gives this establishment it's name. While always striving for somplace new, our group agreed that they would definately come back to the Brookside!
