In all the times I have eaten at Suba's, I have never had a bad dining experience. The deserts are awesome, especially the apple crisp with cinnamon ice cream. The owners and staff are friendly and will make you want to come back.

Very nice place with great service and great food. The menu has a lot to choose from and everything that I have tried has always been cooked to perfection. It is a little pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for! We will always come back!

I ordered a steak "Medium Rare" and when it arrived at our table it there was more tendons and fat than there was meat, and it was tough. My wife ordered the alfredo and she said that she has had mixes out of a box that was better. I spent $60 on our meal when we could have gotten better... More

Usually stop in here for a late lunch on the way home from bike riding in Damascus, VA. You must make a reservation as this small place is always slammed with locals & travelers. This visit I had crawfish cakes (like crab cakes), they were good but not as good as I was expecting them to be. There was more... More
