Stopped in for late lunch after a hike. Had to wait for our waitress, but once she came she was friendly, helped with recommendations, and took good care of our needs. Food tasted great. Big portions. Omelet and fried cod were delicious. And it was cheap!

Restaurants are limited in this area so we tried this diner. My sandwhich was fine but my husband ordered a ribeye steak and he didn't like it at all and he isn't picky and generally eats anything.....said it seemed old or something. He didn't care for the diner. Not the place to order a steak but I think sandwhiches or... More

A fine spot for breakfast for small or large groups. Prices were quite fair and the food, quite tasty.

Located in the very small town of Pearisburg, Vriginia, this is a local place right across the highway from a ubiquitous WalMart and an equally ubiquitous McDonalds. I have an extreme aversion to fast food when I'm traveling so this restaurant fit the bill. This is plain, no-frills but satisfying country cooking. I had the Country Ham breakfast which was...

We stayed at a nearby B and B and ended up eating at Friends and Family twice--lunch and dinner. At lunch I had a bacon, lettuce, tomato (yellow tomato, at that) and grilled chicken sandwich and sweet potato fries. Wonderful. Hubby had pork BBQ, also good. Our dinner meal was less stellar, and the server, while very sweet, was confused... More

This is not a date night kind of place: it is a take your kids or family member type of place. Food is average, diner type fair. I recommend breakfast or maybe even lunch.

They offer one of those huge, multiple page menus with cutesy names for dishes, and somehow manage to make a consistent quality with wide variety. Everything I've tried, in going there for many years since it opened, is on the plain side... but still good. Sort of like home cooking for the family on a busy day, but not fancied... More

I was pleased; I loved most of what they have on the menu. Our waitress (a dark haired young lady) was very attentive; she went out of her way to keep us filled with drinks and anything we needed. It is a wonderful sit down and enjoys kind of place. I will definitely become a regular. Most of the staff... More

I know that it is a favorite in town but I think the home cooking used to be better. The breakfast is definitely the best meal of the day.
