We had two of the best martinis ever to start our evening in the welcoming atmosphere of this marvelous eatery. The trout was succulent, the poutine a treat, and I'll dream about the fried oysters in the "deviled egg dipping sauce". I ended my meal with profiterole….D-freaking-licious!

We've heard people rave about the Millstone Tea Room for years, but this was our first trip out. Beautiful drive out with the setting sun. When we arrived, the fire was going in the wood stove, and we were greeted warmly. It was the perfect night for the tomato bisque, which came with the entree. The trout was perfectly cooked... More

Hidden Gem! Very intimate! Excellent food and service. Great for any occasion. Only complaint, they make the best pear martini's, but every time we go, they are always out of the ingredients. Wish they would keep the ingredients in stock.

One of our favorite restaurants around the Roanoke area. Seasonal menu changes based on what's in the garden and available locally. Farm-to-table place. Nice wine and craft beer selection. French bread w/ homemade butter is a nice start. I love all of their seasonal gnocchi variations. Fried chicken is a staple. Shrimp and grits very good. Steaks are always tasty... More

Simply perfect. This cute and quaint restaurant is about 12 miles/15 minutes north of Centertown Bedford and worth the short drive! It exceeded our expectations in every way. We knew it would be good, but we were blown away. The service was outstanding and the food was unbelievably delicious. We went for Sunday brunch and got the Tomato Bisque, Steak... More

4 of us dined at the Millstone Tearoom for a Christmas Holiday meal. We had a reservation and were seated as soon as we walked in. This is a cozy place to dine and I would call it intimate. Pretty small capacity for dinner, so I think one needs a reservation. Our waitress could only be described as Excellent! Pleasant,... More

We've eaten here several times for Sunday lunch with friends. Every entree we have tried was excellent. And if you like bold coffee, you will enjoy their blend.

What a pleasant surprise. This restaurant was at the bottom of the mountain near the cabin we had rented in Bedford, VA for the weekend of October 4-6. We had spent the entire day doing touristy stuff and didn't want to travel far to find something good to eat. Wow! What a pleasant experience. The restaurant is very small but... More

Nearly two years ago, I had one of the very best steaks that I have ever had at this restaurant. Even though I have had many other meals here since, I had not had another steak until last week, and it was as good as the last one. Delicious, locally-sourced food that is craefully prepared and served. TRES BON!
