We had a delicious meal at this tiny, out of the way place, worth the extra few miles! Wonderful shrimp, quail, and chicken dishes. The mussels as an app. were perfectly done. Yummy bread too. We sat outside on a lovely deck and enjoyed a family of kittens who played at our feet. Check it out!

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 and the grits that accompanied it were divine. My husband enjoyed the mixed grill, but he was very envious of the guy at the next table who had ordered the fried chicken! For dessert, we shared the bread pudding, which was also good. I think we'll be trying the Sunday brunch next!

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 and cooked to perfection. Dessert this time was a nice bread pudding w/ vanilla ice cream. Service is always prompt and entertaining. Very very small/intimate place, so reservations are usually needed.

Worth the trip. Try to incorporate a visit to nearby historic downtown Bedford or the National D-Day Memorial.
