This is a pleasant, old-fashioned downtown restaurant with wood floors. I was there twice in the past week. The catfish special, with fries, at $7.95, was a solid value. The vegetable beef soup was pretty good and tasted home made. Today the hamburger was ok, nothing special. The price point of $8.95 is reasonable.

A variety of meal selections at fair prices. A tastefully restored old mill with tasty meal offerings. First time visitor, was not disappointed.

I had the sirloin steak and my husband had the salmon. Both dinners were good, but not great. The service was good and decor of the place was very interesting.

We recently moved to the area and ate here tonight after reading the reviews on trip advisor. The bldg is very beautiful although the decor was dated it still felt quaint (We ate downstairs) The dining room was fairly empty and the service was slow but not unbearably. However, even after declining dessert and requesting boxes we still had to... More

This was one of the places recommended by Deb at the Parkside Inn. We went to the tavern which was upstairs in the building. It is an old mill around 200 yrs old and the owners have made it into a cozy tavern. It was very relaxed and friendly. The food was great and the service was excellent!

The food was pretty good. We arrived late, ordered steaks which had a nice flavor. The waitress was friendly and the wait was not long.

We have been here a few times now, and the menu is varied enough to please all five of us. They serve hearty, fresh American food, and the drinks are huge. Curiously the bar is on the next floor up. A drink-limiting tactic? I'd certainly take that into consideration before I had a few inside me! :)

Last week 3 of us stopped here for lunch. We had just taken the walking tour of Front Royal. We each enjoyed our meal. A friend and I had the chef's salad--very good and fresh, and another person had a turkey sandwich which he enjoyed. The restaurant is very pleasant and was decorated nicely for Halloween. Our server was very... More

We went back to Main Street for our 3rd time this past weekend and it lacked the appeal of former visits. Service was still good, but the food was just mediocre. Next time we're in Front Royal, we'll give a different restaurant a shot.
