No better place in Ashland for lunch. Everything is made fresh and reasonably priced. Can be crowded so I usually go after 1.

I'm so glad we went a few extra miles to eat here. The food was delicious and there were so many choices. Everything was super fresh. My quiche was way too much food for me, but it was hard to stop eating.More

We have a lot of power lunches and meetings at the hospital. Homemades by Suzanne is a huge favorite by most companies. Highly recommend the chicken salad or the ham sandwiches. Then again, my tastebuds and not necessarily yours. Enjoy!More

Clean, friendly atmosphere. Great comfort food menu for breakfast and lunch. Crab cakes are wonderful. Desserts are to die for and should be shared. Not the time or place to count calories though.More

Homemades by Suzanne is a to die for restaurant. Forget diets, splurge for the french silk pie. Everything at this restaurant is excellent.

Wow, if you loved your grandmas food, then this is the place for you. The absolute best is the shrimp salad sandwich, and it on homemade rolls too. Can't miss out on all the homemade food here.More

Serving house-made foods for 35 years something like Gran made in her kitchen. Bread for sandwiches is baked every morning. Enjoy a turkey roll with sliced turkey roasted in our ovens and a country ham sandwich that was voted one of the best in Virginia by USA Today. The Crab Cake Sandwich is good too or you can enjoy the best-ever shrimp salad and tuna salad. Vernell bakes deep dish pies daily and the jumbo cookie case is full of selections. Lots of sides to choose from ~~ Branden's Potato Salad, Roslyn's spaghetti salad, cucumber & tomato, black-eyed pea vinaigrette, Christine's deviled eggs etc. etc. Located on the railroad tracks in the middle of historic Victorian Ashland, you can watch the freight and passenger trains on their way north and south. You will be welcomed and treated very well.+
