The place is an established tradition in Staunton, but it does show its age. The food is good (average) comfort food at affordable prices. Many people go for the pies & cookies. I had the caramel apple cookies, & they were very good.

This title kind of says it all. We visited Mrs. Rowe’s with my in-laws recently, and had the following experiences. The smell when you walk in the door is of dampness, possibly mold, not food. It’s really unappetizing, and a trip to the ladies’ room...More

We met family there while on the road. I really like this restaurant. Home cooking and good prices...you will not leave without feeling full, satisfied, and that you got a good meal for your money. I recommend the Liver and Onions (if you like that)...More

Lunch at this restaurant was excellent as usual. Very friendly staff , very good home- style cooking. Meatloaf is a winner for me, as are the fried oysters. The homemade pies and cakes are some of my wife's favorites, as well as mine.

We've enjoyed eating dinner here previously, and look forward to it when we visit Staunton. The meals are delicious and plentiful, and the desserts are wonderful. Service is pleasant, and quick.

We stopped by here on our way to NJ. The food was great, turkey, meatloaf, just like your mom or grandmom used to make. The atmosphere was great, real southern homestyle restaurant. I'd go here again when in the area.

the mains and starters are nothing special (can't even remember what we had) but the pies are certainly worth visiting for - I had coconut cheesecake which was excellent (many locals come in just to buy pies and cookies from the counter)

When you go in to eat just ask waitress if you can pre order pies and pick up on your way back home. You can also ask the cashier the same question. The items in freezer are made daily. I ordered a pie to take home which... More
