This restaurant has been in the great bridge area for years and years but I had never been before. People in the area rave about this place constantly. One day a coworker and I decided to try it and I just wasn't all that impressed. The food wasn't that bad but I just didn't see the big deal or why... More

Do not be fooled by the exterior of this place. The food and service are good. 9 of us gathered for lunch.

Order the Barely Legal Burger and Crab cake sandwich to go and it was outstanding. Definitely one of the best burger I've had in a while. Will be back to dine in.

Courthouse has been there almost forever, always crowded. Family owned. Very good food, very good service. I believe that Thursday nights is there Prime Rib special night. there are nightly specials. we have never had room for desert. but the menu selection is nice, and service friendly.

I know they want to keep the nostalgia of an old established restaurant but Lord you have got to update that interior. The service is great the food is good the drinks are not that pricey but it definitely needs a makeover.

I was in the mood for Prime Rib and I recalled this place being one of the Tidewater areas very best. I hadn't been by in several years and I now know what I have been missing. Simply put, it is still the best prime Rib spot in town. The wooden elegance gives the original feel of a real court... More

We were here for lunch with my husband's first mother-in-law. Her fish turned out to be dry. My salad was okay, except the dressing was boring. My husband enjoyed his liver and onions. The service here was very good, and the atmosphere was nice. I could eat here again if necessary, but it's not a place I'd choose to go... More

I have been many time to the Court House Cafe and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Steaks and Seafood and nightly specials. Court house atmosphere. Prime Rib is excellent. Would highly recommend

The restaurant is pretty clean looking. I had the Prime Rib. It was pretty mediocre. Nothing special about it at all. Waitress is pretty nice, and flirts pretty hard, but that is until she gets your money. Then your basically ignored. Wish I had a better experience here. Have not been back since. And it is questionable if I would... More
