Was a recommended place to eat breakfast - it was very tasty! We had the French toast and Crab-Spinach omelet. French toast came with grits -- unfortunately we couldn't eat them because they are made with milk )lactose intolerant). Service could be improved some (offer coffee, etc). Little pricier than we expected

This has been our favored place to eat when in the northern Neck and after our visit this past weekend it remains so. Too many local seafood restaurants over do their presentation with fancy menu's, overdone decor, and expensive entrees but the CWC provides wonderful home style meals, very reasonably priced in a casual, local-flavor atmosphere.

We would have never stopped here, if we hadn't read the trip advisor reviews. Had sandwiches for lunch and they were very good. If you are looking for a huge menu or atmosphere this is not the place. If you are looking for good food, give it a try.

This is the kind of place you probably would pass by --but that would be a big mistake. Kilmarnock is a small but touristy village with a number of restaurants but I doubt any match up with the car wash ---and there is a car wash there. 16 or 20 tables with an interesting menu...Rose had a oyster po'boy and...

Food is good and worth the wait. Brunch on Sunday is usually crowded so expect a line unless you beat the church crowd. Pricing is a bit high for the area though, but worth it.

We have been here many times for lunch. Great menu with great selections and service. Rockfish sandwich was awesome. Diner type atmosphere. Small seating area.

I love the CarWash Cafe which has a carwash and a restaurant on the property. It is small and quaint with fantastic food. I especially love to get their Rockfish sandwich - it is fantastic.
