Tried them for the first time, food was very good. I had the crab cakes, meaty and nicely seasoned. Would definitely recommend them. My wife had the filet, cooked just the way she wanted, tender and great flavor. Hope more people can find this place...More

Steak and eggs with home fries and onions. The absolute best ever. This restaurant is a must eat at. Laid back chef and can really cook. The best place to eat in Danville Virginia.

Here for St. Patrick's Day. Had the Dublin Coddle. It was so good that when I finished it I sampled the corn beef. Best I've had. What a wonderful experience. Oh yeah. The Guinness was good also.

This was our first visit since the location opened with quite a different menu and atmosphere. The food was delicious. Nice to have an upscale option in Danville.
