This is such a fun place! The food and service were excellent, and the live music was also a great touch. It's the perfect location for dinner, drinks, or both. We'll definitely be back.

We ate in the restaurant in the hotel as we did not want to go out. The restaurant was surprisingly busy but the wait for a table was quick. Service was on the slower side but it could be because there really is no rush in Luray and most people were waiting for the live entertainment that started a bit... More

The night that we were here was rather busy with football games on the TV' and the restaurant and bar were packed. The server was friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The cocktails were delicious and the food was okay.

If you are looking for a great place to have dinner without having to dress up then the Speakeasy Bar is perfect. The menu has everything you would want with the entrees running about $15 each. I enjoyed the Shrimp and Grits and my husband really liked the meatloaf. The restaurant has a terrific atmosphere and friendly staff. The night... More

Our waitress was excellent: polite, knew all the dishes, and could comment intelligently on both the beers and the wines on the drink list. Food was perfectly prepared and nicely presented. Delivered promptly. The ambiance is definitely not fine dining, but it's clean and attractive.

My husband chose the Speakeasy Bar because we wanted a relaxed atmosphere with live music. The Speakeasy did not disappoint. The atmosphere was pleasant, the service great and the food very good. There was a wide variety of choices on the menu. The live music was entertaining.

Hubby ordered food during our stay. Everything was delicious! A convenient option when you stay at the Mimslyn Inn.

I went here with my husband and sister during our trip to Luray. We weren't sure what to expect given that it was kinda empty for a Saturday night, but it was great. Our waiter was attentive and fast, keeping our drinks topped off. The food was incredible! We had sweet potato fries with crumbled blue cheese, crab dip, ribs,... More

We enjoyed hamburger and sandwich at this lovely spot underneath the beautiful Mimslyn Hotel. The night we were there did not have live music, so the ambiance was quiet and conducive to conversation.

On Friday nights they have 1/2 price bottles of wine - not the best wine, but it was fine and went well with fried oysters and meatloaf. And the hotel upstairs is lovely.
