Ate here on a road trip from NYC to West Texas and was blown away -- best meal of the trip by far. Service was incredibly warm. Great beer selection and staff was very knowledgeable in giving recommendations.

Not an ultra high end snooty restaurant but one with a great team of chefs, bartenders and wait staff. I got seafood soup. Wife got the mussels. Both happy. Happy hour is pretty sweet. 1/2 price wine and beverages. Bread way above average. Good selection...More

Somewhat pricey but good farm to table experience. Good service. Informal dining, a relaxed experience. Have been here for dinner and brunch and have never been disappointed.

The bar menu is a little less expensive - but the hamburger is one of the best in Roanoke. The regular menu varies, but it's not cheap. They organize their menu by size of appetite. The medium appetite items average $7-11... More
