It took 50 minutes to have a panini and the special of the day ordered on a weekday. Other than them forgetting about us, the food was actually pretty good!

Hi Jackie, We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the food you ordered with us! However, we're less happy to learn about the time you waited to receive your order. We try our absolute best to ensure that all of our customers are always accommodated for in a timely manner, but the busyness of the weekend does unfortunately set us... More

Had a group of ladies meeting for lunch and called ahead. They don't take reservations but said that if we came in early enough, we could reserve a table. Started out with 8 confirmed and ended up with 6. I looked all over for my receipt so that I could mention our server by name, but couldn't find where I... More

Have a good menu to select from and friendly staff. Parking is kind of strange if your not used to it and most people go to drink layer in the day and they do have a large selection to choose from but I don't drink so it's a average place for me to go during the day for lunch no... More

This is one of our go-to places, where every time we've gone we always have a satisfying experience. Longstreet's has not failed us yet after years of coming here. I always get the Oyster Po Boy with sweet potato fries, and it's always yummy. Our kids usually get their paninis, and they're always happy with those. Staff is friendly and... More

My wife and I had dinner at Longstreet's and were pleased with the service and the food. We were here for dinner. Our meals were terrific. They had some fantastic onion rings. This is a place we will definitely go back to again.

This seems to be one of the local favorites, but it was our first experience here. We were greeted quickly even though there was a line. Once seated we got our drinks and appetizers quick. My wife ordered the Fish and Fripps and I was wanting an Oyster Po Boy, which is what brought us this way. After a wait... More

Greeter was not so friendly. Just said sit where you want when we asked for a table for two and left is to walk off. I'm used to being taken to a table. Greeter was also our server. She was not particularly friendly or attentive. Food was great though. Review would be higher starred if server was far more enthusiastic.... More

On the return trip home from Washington recently I wanted to stop for lunch @ the Americana Inn restaurant on the outskirts of Petersburg. I stayed there decades ago when I traveled Southside/Tidewater, VA & Eastern NC as they had a homegrown local specialty (Peanut Soup) which became a favorite of mine. Alas, the motel was closed, the property overgrown,... More
