This is the best restaurant in Halifax County. The food is amazing and changes with the seasons. The atmosphere is lovely and the people are most helpful and welcoming. Everyone needs to come and enjoy the experience.

This restaurant is a wonderful find in a small town area in South Virginia. The meals are well made and serving sizes are plentiful. Our server (Jessie?) was attentive, polite and knowledgeable of the menu. It was a very pleasant dinner experience.

I am not difficult to please but my experience here did not live up to my expectations. Without the fabulous bartender Rebecca, this experience would have been a total bust. Lovely, intimate, and vintage interior and a few good craft beers on tap were the...More
