I'm not a steak eater but the crowd I was with eats here every year so I tagged along. We were seated quickly on a busy Friday night but the line was long all night. Rolls with honey butter melt in your mouth. Salad bar was plentiful and tidy. I had the chicken with cheese and BBQ sauce and sweet... More

When your looking for the possibility of having soup, salad, plenty of meats, tacos, italian, seafood this could be the place. This is a good place for eating all types of foods and het a salad buffet to boot. Food was cooked well and filling. Good value with great service. We enjoyed the visit amd good friends.

Love Great 611...got the 9oz boxcar (rib eye). Was cooked perfectly. Tender & juicy. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Very busy on weekends, best bet is to wait until around 8pm.. Crowds thin out a little then. Wonderful Railroad memorabilia everwhere.

Stop here when we want a good steak at a good price. Never been disappointed about the food and portions. You get seated fast but service is starting lag. Had to request beverage refills and ask where wait staff was.

It's been a while since we ate at the 611. As usual, it was crowded with patrons looking for a good meal at a reasonable price. We were seated quickly, but had to wait about 10 minutes before the waitress came for our drink order. We ordered the chopped steak with peppers and onions. The steak was juicy and well... More

Recommended. This place seems to be a favorite with the locals. Patrons from all walks of life wander in and out in work garb or suits, hunkering for filling meal. And that's what you get here — sizeable serving portions and a four-isle buffet chock full of goodies to eat. If you're hungry and have a big group to feed,... More

Me and the wife had to stop in Roanoke for night and chose this restaurant because the proximity of our hotel, we wanted steak and the reviews were good. We arrived on a Thursday night before Christmas and it was busy but we were seated right away. We both ordered the same meal which was the boxcar, 9 oz ribeye... More

Since I was in Roanoke to visit N&W 611 at the Virginia Transportation Museum, I decided to stop here for dinner one evening. I was a little unsure at first with the buffet-style salad bar, but I went ahead and ordered the filet. The steak was very good, and cooked perfectly to my liking. About that "salad" bar - there's...

Last night we went to this restaurant for a family dinner. It was excellent. The food was plentiful and delicious. One member of our family can not always find something they like on a menu; but here with all the choices everyone was satisfied. Our waiter, Charles, was an absolute delight, his personality just lit up the restaurant.

We have ate here several times on different trips to Roanoke. Food has always been good and good service. They have a big salad bar and other options along with good steaks, chicken, and shrimp plates. Also I think there 611 train shirts look better than the transportation museums.
