Don't let the humble exterior fool you. This is our favorite restaurant for special occasions. The management is very friendly and attentive. The staff is knowledgeable and alert. The dining room has great ambience and service. But make no mistake, this place is about the food. Some of my best meals have been eaten here. My wife and I, sometimes... More

Perfect option for a special meal or event. It can be a bit pricey, but the service is amazing and the food and beverage menu is very good for a small town. Francis and Chef are both very creative. Francis is the wine expert at the Classic.

The food was very good and the staff was amazing! My son and I thought we would try this while in Fort Worth for the weekend. I do not mind paying top dollar for a meal. However, I expect to be blown away and that just did not happen here.

We had landed in the early afternoon and were in need of something to eat. It had been a number of years since we had been there but we were delighted to get back. The staff are particularly nice and engaging and the food was perfect for us. Two of us had the salmon which was special. Will keep it... More

Went to this place for a pre Valentine dinner. None of us had ever been there but will be back! Great food and service. The Classic Cafe is in an old house and they have it laid out so each room gives you a intimate dining experience.

My wife and I went there for Valentine's Day. Despite a full house we never felt rushed and the staff never seemed rattled. The menu was limited that night but was very well done. My wife had the filet mignon with mushroom dust and I had the tuna au poive. Both were top notch. My starter was a smoked red... More

The Classic Cafe is housed in an older home in the quaint town of Roanoke. This lends to a cozy atmosphere for the memorable meals that are served. Cuisine is updated southern, with a nice selection of salads, appetizers, seafood, meat and desserts. Many of the ingredients are locally sourced, sometimes from their own garden! The wine list is extensive... More

It's difficult to find a restaurant that can match the consistent high standard of service, food, and ambience found here. Judging by the number of other diners last night, we are not the only ones who think so. It's a wonderful choice for special occasions, out of town guests, or any time you want a good meal in a warm,... More

Stopped in for lunch yesterday and we're pleasantly surprised at the white clothed tables amid different rooms. I think this must have been a house before becoming a restaurant. The wait staff is delightful. The owner peruses the establishment welcoming his customers. Nice gentlemen. The bar is a unique spot for a libation. Dark paneling envelopes the room. The menu...

We enjoyed gourmet food and a glass of wine while listening to live classical guitar. Our waitress was perfect. Special place for either a casual getaway dinner or a special occasion. Will definitely return.
