“Best Chili in Years”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

My wife and I are amateur foodies, and planned our honeymoon in Luray for the activities, with no idea of how incredible the food in town would be. We stopped in on our first night in town on a whim since I thought the architecture of the building looked interesting and there was a hiking outfitter across the street. The staff was extremely friendly and even with a relatively small crowd none were sitting around or killing time. We were seated immediately in the upstairs dining room and the entire building was very clean and neat. With such big window sills dust is sometimes forgotten, but not here. We were immediately impressed with the building and staff. The waitress came and took our drink orders and brought us menus as soon as we were seated and we ordered salads and the chili. I don't think either of us were expecting the chili to be as incredible as it was. The food came and the salads were fresh and crisp, the dressing was obviously homemade and not off the back of a delivery truck, and was quite good. The chili though, was out of this world good. If you're looking for heat it isn't going to bring tears to your eyes, but the flavor and the tenderness of the meat were perfect. Our drinks stayed topped off and the service was prompt without hovering. Would absolutely return again and recommend this restaurant to others.

“Delicious! Great atmosphere.”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Steak salad was yummy! Portion was perfect and pricing was good. My only complaint is that my son ordered 2 sandwiches and we were charged for 2 full meals but given only 1 side... May have been oversight, but made his meal costly...

“Very good sandwiches”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We have eaten here several times in the last few visits to Luray. Nice atmosphere on second floor, good selection of bottled beer (some local) and sandwiches very good. Great location to caverns.

“Number one in Luray for lunch or dinner”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Good place with a wide selection. Good service and prices. A burger, cole-slaw and a beer were outstanding. Also nice history to the building.

“Lucky us!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I usually look at Tripadvisor before selecting where to eat dinner, but since this was lunchtime we just popped into the first place! Lucky us! We had sandwiches and they were excellent. The only reason I did not give this an "excellent" was we were not that impressed with the side dishes. Staff was fine. Would recommend for lunches, for sure!
