“Just a great breakfast”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

The breakfast was great in the Circa '31 restaurant. The entry to this stately manor is quite grand and the drive up to the entry is beautiful. The setting is reminiscent of the old south - just lovely.

“The worst meal of our visit to Luray and Shenandoah!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

The hotel is beautiful and the view from the porch is great! But the food is not so great! My husband had an OKAY pasta dish I had the salmon burger. Halfway through, I realized the chunks of salmon were not cooked. I sent it back. The waitress apologized and she offered me another dish. I then got the sirloin wrap...better, but the meat was too chewy. Too bad...beautiful place, just need to work on their menu.

“Brilliant Presentation”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

The fall themed menu complete with wine pairings made for both a feast for the pallet and the eye. Each coarse was plated with a dramatic flourish, served by knowledgeable staff and paired with delicious local wines.

“A wonderful lunch, and great value”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We chose this wonderful place as a half-way restaurant to meet some friends for a leisurely lunch. I did some Internet research, and we made reservations. It could not have been better. They describe it as Vintage Southern Hospitality, and it was- complete with bell captain in a black uniform and a maitre d' in a black tux for lunch. The buffet was $9.95 including beverage and dessert, to be chosen from at least 4 choices each of salads, entrees, sides, and desserts. After lunch we sat in rocking chairs on the spacious front porch overlooking the Skyline Drive. It is located approximately 15 miles east of Interstate 81-over a mountain- to a nice get-away. They have beautiful grounds complete with 2 hammocks and small formal gardens.
