We were surprised and delighted by the wonderful food. From soup to main course, wine and beer choices, and every single vegetable side, even the baguette bread for the table, this place was so much better than we could have imagined. The entire service staff were friendly and thoughtful. We'd been sent by locals, and they were right. Even in... More

My husband and I patronized the Sandpiper Restaurant while vacationing in Irvington VA. We have patronized the restaurant in the past, and made sure we ate at the restaurant while in town. The food is delicious! My husband loves the beer battered shrimp, and I love the Sandpiper Alfredo with grilled chicken. Very family oriented restaurant, friendly staff.

A great little seafood restaurant restaurant with a down home feel. Nothing fancy and you don't go for the view. Just a good selection of seafood from folks who appreciate your business. (The view overlooks the parking lot since it's in the town of White Stone.) My wife and I dropped by for dinner and had excellent dinners. I had... More

This is an old standby down here on the Northern Neck. Been around for a good number of years, but the menu has changed little. The good news about that is that the menu is basically solid. There is nothing fancy here and it is a little over priced for what one gets. Decor is a little dowdy and the... More

Excellent and friendly service. Everything we have tried over the last several months has been well prepared, tasty and with ample portions. The Cosmo's were outstanding. Relatively quite environment making conversation easy. Its easy to find with adequate parking.

My husband and I were told of your establishment several yrs ago, however we did not take the locals advice at the time to visit you. Wow! Weren't we mistaken!

Of the available dining establishments within 20 miles, this is probably the best. The staff is very pleasant and they do not hold it against you if you are not a local, unlike other eateries. They have an extensive wine selection and a good bar. The interior atmosphere is simple and somewhat dated but certainly workable for an evening meal.... More
