Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

I really wanted to love this place but the food, while good missed the mark. I would definitely go back but would choose different dishes.

“One of Lynchburg's Best”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Backyard Burger. 'Nuff said...
Pleasant atmosphere, transitions predictably from family to adult as the evening moves on.

“Nice Place to Gather for Lunch”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This downtown eatery is a nice place to have lunch, and if you also need a place to have a business luncheon.
We found the food to be good, we were there with an out of town business colleague and they also enjoyed the food.

“Best Dining in Lynchburg”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This restaurant has a great converted industrial feel. The menu is broad enough to accommodate a total carnivore and a vegetarian in the same meal. They have an incredible martini menu that is totally creative and fun (Can you say pop rock rimmed martini?). Prices are reasonable and I'll just say this, get dessert! Very few restaurants that are really worth the extra price, calories and time added to your meal but I have never had a dessert that disappointed at Robin Alexanders.

“One of Lynchburg's Best…”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

My husband and I have dined here several times and it is always excellent! I'm always surprised when I find out that local people are unfamiliar with this restaurant — there are just no down sides. The food, service and atmosphere is wonderful, and the prices are what you'd expect to pay (maybe a little less!) for this quality of a meal.
