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.

Molasses Grill is a must. Everyone there works as a team. The Chef creates great appetizers, entres and desserts. The homemade ice creams are an experience in themselves. Great service. The bartender made the most PERFECT dry martini! We had the calamari as an appetizer...More
