REVIEWS OF Blue Ridge Cafe & Catering IN Virginia

Chuck Roy

The entire meal was excellent. All three of us agreed that this was the best meal we've had in a while. The hot rolls we're a nice start. I had the rodeo burger, my wife had meat loaf and our son had chicken strips.

Paper Scissors

Considering the local hoopla about this place, the end product was , in a sense, disappointing. The food was rather bland and can only be summed up with the word," okay." This cafe left much to be desired and I left without a real incitive to go back. Despite that, the service was quick, and lively, with the menu options having a decent variety. All together, I can only say that this cafe is rather subpar and I would recommend a good 6 other Cafe's before this one. This cafe was not bad, it just wasn't great.

Jeanne Wright

Great menu and service. Fried chicken was amazing.

Tammy Farrar

My husband and I went here with my parents when we were visiting for Labor Day weekend. While not the same atmosphere as Tavern on the Rail the dishes we had were good. The server who waited on us was friendly and attentive. Whoever mixed my drink was a little heavy handed as I had to water it down a bit to combat the flames I was breathing on the All in all a nice dinner out.

Wanda Beastley

Yummy lunch. Next time I'll order my croissant toasted for their special chicken salad

Michelle Taylor

Our family stopped for lunch, we were seated quickly and the menu was full of options. I believe our waitress Savannah was new and may need more training, as she was very unfamiliar with the soups and menu. Food was very good and prices were reasonable.

Mike Dilley

Good food, good service. We enjoyed it.

M Furr

If it was possible to give no stars that would be the rating. Food and service was terrible .Orders for food not only came out incorrect as far as toppings also well done was served raw inside and burgers were cold.The issues were not addressed we were told the returned food was removed from the bill but wasn't so while trying to straighten that out with an individual we were told was a manager we were accosted by a friend of one of the staff then another staff member made comments as we left.I have never been attacked for wanting to be served decent food or be treated like a customer I guess they think they can sling whatever on the table you pay and leave .Sad we met the owner and she had encouraged us to try it a while back but I'm pretty sure she has no idea the front end staff are running it like a dive hole in the wall.I wouldn't recomend it as a place to drink either considering the obvious lack of control of the environment the staff just chuckled as thier beligerant "friend" acousted us while trying to straighten out the bill..beyond disappointed

Monica Thomas

Great service and food!

Barb Byerly

Had dinner here on Saturday evening with friends. Wait staff was friendly and attentive, wait time was minimal. Our food came out quickly and perfectly prepared. Our meals were tasty, fresh, and colorful. We enjoyed it immensely. We highly recommend the chocolate lava cake!


Excellent service, food was perfect and delicious. Quite environment allows you to unwind and slow down, yet, invigorating. Will different be back!

Veronica Dudley

4 different meals, 4 not good reviews. Was very disappointed! Waitress was great. Food was not.

James A Gaston III

Their steak is the best in the area. Way better than Outback, Texas, or Aberdeen Barn. Love the charbroiled taste!

Marjorie Quillen

Lots to choose from on the menu, very friendly family owned business. Highly recommend this place

janie rauch

Good excellent. Wait staff “Trina”. Apparently having a bad day. Very short with guest

I Shoot U

Enjoyed sitting on the front porch !

Ashley Magerkurth

This place was awesome. We found it passing through, on the way home from Massanutten. There are a lot of menu items to choose from and great comfort food. The server was so nice. There is also a separate bar area which looked nice, however we were just there for lunch. Would be good for large or small groups. Highly recommend!

Emma Taylor

Love the food and the atmosphere, always have a great experience here!

Johnell Mc Neal

Very nice place to eat.

O Johnson

Another nice discovery of a great place to eat brunch & lunch The food was excellent and the service is impeccable. We will frequent them as often as possible on our monthly trips to Charlottesville.

yansy murillo

Excelent service

Donna Lindemann

Slow service but good food prices were good as well!

Jean Kaufman

The food was great. The waitresses gathered complaining about customers, not so much.

Daniel Roberson

We live close by and I saw them on Google maps, they offer take out and I was in the mood for something different for lunch. Wife ordered the chicken salad sandwich with fries. They looked good and she enjoyed them, the fries were great. I orders a crab cake sandwich with asparagus. The crab cake was on the small side, but flavor was great. My largest gripe with the meal is the $2 up charge for asparagus, of which I was given 8 pieces. Also tried the peanut butter pie, if you go don't pass it by. The food we good, but honestly I don't think the price/value was there. We may try them again, maybe eat in next time and see how it goes, but my first impression was meh.

Mr. Blanks

Betty was awesome! The shrimp was great and the dragons breath burger rocked the house!!! The chefs hot sauce was amazing! Definitely happy we ran across this place after a long hike in the Shenandoah! It was worth the trip!!!!

Alix Menhart

Food is really good but we enjoy the Blue Ridge Cafe on quieter days. There was a banquet plus the Friday evening crowd so it was a busy night! Looking forward to our next dinner but just on a slower day!

Sandra Barber

Great place to enjoy a nice dinner! They have restaurant seating for families and bar seating as well. Food is great! Lucky to have such nice meals close to home!

Bill Emmerich

Great food & service

Danielle Jones

Stopped in on a quick trip and was pretty good

Jessie Holmes

We were passing through on business and stopped here last night for dinner off a recommendation from our client who is a local. I’ll start by our waitress- Trina, she was absolutely one of the best I’ve had. Her attention to detail and willingness to serve her customers is something that many others could learn from. She said she had only been there 2 weeks- I hope someone in management reads this because after observing her with our table and her other guests; and observing other waiting staff with their tables- I HIGHLY suggest Trina be considered for a training position. Next I will say the atmosphere and menu selection is great. I can tell the restaurant is kept clean and updated. The menu has such a variety I had such a hard time deciding. I did end up going with the BBQ Chicken meal. I didn’t realize it came fried and was a little discouraged when my food arrived and it was fried- THIS WAS MY OWN FAULT. However, I ate it anyways and it was amazing. I don’t usually order fried chicken anywhere because it’s typically over breaded and over cooked. Not the case here- it was perfect. I had the Cole slaw and Caesar salad as my sides- very good as well. Good service. Good selection. Good prices. I wish we didn’t live 800 miles away or we would be regulars as well.

Ronald Bryant

Great service, from our waitress Shannon! Food was very good! Clean friendly restaurant!

Anna Jackson

The sign commands the customer to wait, "even if you want a table by the bar," but nobody came to direct us to a table. We waited, and waited. Plenty of people were there, but not for us, ... so we left. Wow.

Vincent McKee

Awesome food. Everything was good. The wings where awesome, steak amazing. Even the ceaser salad was top notch.

Coach Jeremy Lamm

The Rodeo Burger is absolutely delicious! Jeanette is the best server. She goes out of her way to make your dining experience enjoyable. She is personable, attentive and always has a smile!

Ken Kotarski

Good food, fair prices

Susan Wilson

We have been coming to Blue Ridge Cafe for many years. We love it and alway have a great meal and great service. Been coming for Thanksgiving for a long time as well and it is fabulous. Great variety on the menu and everyone is always so nice as well.

Travis Gibson

Excellent food. Ordered pasta, chicken and the meat loaf. Great flavor, was delivered nice and hot. Staff was extremely friendly and quick. Highly recommend.

Melanie Foster

We frequently dine at Blue Ridge Cafe. Our recent dining experience was very nice. Since we had a larger party of 7, I had called ahead to reserve a table. I wanted to request seating in the back room just beyond the bathrooms (I think it is called the Blue Ridge Room). When we arrived, the staff had already set-up our table. The atmosphere in that room added to the experience. Our waitress, Trish, took very good care of us.

Andy Randolph

Excellent food and service!!

ginette greene

Noisy. Food was expensive for the quality. Salad had brown edges. Never inviting. The baked potato, however, was delicious. We’d pass on the mixed berry cobbler, a real disappointment.

Missy Roy

We travel from Massanutten to Blue Ridge Cafe - our favorite restaurant! Always good food and good service! Our waitress Betty was awesome tonight! Update: Went back again last evening - Stephanie the hostess was amazing - she remembered us - it's been about a month since we've been there - she even ran a pen out to our car that we forgot! The food was excellent yet again! Chicken Rio, Rodeo Burgers and Chicken Strips - still our favorite restaurant! Yum!

venise starks-rush

Very pleasant. The waitstaff were very friendly and patient as we had a party of 18. We always get good service when we go to Blue Ridge Cafe.

Iva A

I love this place. The host is great she takes good care of me and my two boys when we come in. They have kids i pads which is good for the kids to stay busy while waiting for food. I always order steak and the cook does an awesome job with the food. I'm a frequent customer and have never been disappointed with my food. Can't wait for the seafood menu this summer. Keep up the good work and God bless.

Richard Heathcote

What a pleasant surprise. In Ruckersville! Expansive menu, good value, spot-on service. Will return.

james powers

Never again will they get a dollar of my money. You should see what $43 of food looks like from my take out order tonight. Who makes a child's grilled cheese with rye bread? All the baked potato topping were melted in the bottom of the box...the little that was there. Crab cake dry and over cooked. Should have went to Subway.

Matthew Bailey

Staff was super nice and caring. Best steak ever. I just think that all restaurants should look up to them

Mary Fennell

Fast service good food cooked to order friendly staff. Good prices.

Nancy Dutton

The service was great and the food was delicious. There are a lot of choices from appetizers to main dishes (I didn't order a dessert but they probably have a lot of choices there too). You can order seafood, steak, chicken, hamburgers, salads, soups, or sandwiches. Something for everyone!

Jeffrey Toledo

Food was GREAT!!! Plenty of selections. Food is served HOT! Try the New England clam chowder soup they have. Decently priced food, definitely worth the money. My server Betty was very friendly and helpful. Been there twice in 2 consecutive days!:-)

Kathryn Corbin

We had to wait a long time for all food. When it came the prime rib that was supposed to be well done, was medium rare. My husband only ate the parts that were done. We told our server about it & he told the cook. Last night our experience was prob one of our worst at Blue Ridge.

Phillip Hilton

Very good place to visit and kudos to Ms Betty.

Doris Gelbman

Best steak I've had in a long while. Tender, perfectly cooked. Salad crisp and not over dressed, fries very hot, flash fried perfectly with seasalt. And very good prices!

Ruth Raup

Excellent food, quiet atmosphere, great wait staff!

Brittany Souder

The staff was very friendly. We ordered steaks, 1 prime rib and 1 New York strip. The prime rib was over cooked but still good. We also added a crab cake to one of the steaks for $5. It was more like a mini crab cake and didnt have much crab meat. Overall our experience was good and we will return.

Peregrine White

Full menu of very good food at very good prices. Service a little laid back, because of end of shift duties Will return

Linda Wonderley

The place was not even full and had to wait to be seated. When we were seated they only gave us two menus because she "couldnt find another one." We never got one refill on our drinks the entire meal. We sent our supposed to be medium rare …

Al McKenzie

It was a most delightful Thanksgiving Day buffet experience - with great service and an efficient seating layout for the high number of customers. They had a delightful - delicious selection of foods & desserts.

Phyllis Mathews

Food excellent and we were not rushed.

Francis McCauley

Fantastic local establishment. Friendly service, great food, and great value.

Patrick Fanning

Excellent food, home made salsa a d chips

Bridget Ramo Joyce

Enjoyed this local eatery. The service was splendid. The food pretty good!

Cathy Johnson

Food is usually very good, but today it wasn't quite up to my standards. It was ok. I ordered sea food platter, I do not recommend it. The fried fish platter is a better choice.

Lauren Stafford Bruce

Blue Ridge Cafe has a good variety of dishes to choose from, but be wary what you order when. We have found that food quality is based very heavily on who's in the kitchen. When Sean, the owner, is there and keeping a watchful eye on everything, the meals are top-notch! When he is not in, the food comes out cold, undercooked, overcooked, and sometimes not at all. We have had a lot of mixed experiences at Blue Ridge over the years. It's a good place to stop and grab a bite, just try to do it when Sean's around.

Nikki Newcomer

The food was good, and it was inexpensive. What stood out to us was the wonderful service. We ended up crunched for time and had to rush out but our waitress was able to get our food and check at the same time and worked with us.

Sarah Harris

One of the best places to eat!

Sherry Summers

The 1st time we ate at the Blue Ridge Cafe, I enjoyed my meal so much that I couldn't wait till I could come again to get that same meal. We just visited a 2nd time & I enjoyed my meal as much as I did on our 1st visit. Our server, Betty, …

Victor Nicholas

Delicious food and drink at reasonable prices!!! I enjoy coming here!

Gail Eades

Delicious food at a great price. We travel about an hour one way just to eat there. The servers are great and it's just a great place to go. Great job, Chef Shawn. Keep up the good work.

Robert Otey

The food and service was excellent. We held our 24-L Lions Installation of Officers there.

Megan Brady

The BEST WEDDING CATERER EVER! Thank you blue ridge cafe and Sue. I can't say enough good things and highly reccommend. AMAZING to work with and have! They surpassed anything we could have hoped for and wanted. Food was great too..they made our day extra special ! Bryan Wedding 4/26/19

Jen Van

Our dinners were excellent, cooked perfectly to order and our server, Betty, was very attentive and knowledge about the menu.

Veronica Walrond

Very wounderfull and good. So very good food.

Teresa Cassell

Great Place To Have Great Food & Drinks...

Rickie Chapman

Everything on my plate was delicious. i had mixed vegetables, baked potato and a half rack of ribs with a watermelon margarita.....mmmmm.

Anthony Swan

The service is generally bad but last night was the worst we have experienced. The food is the only reason we keep coming back. ToGo orders always have food missing and to call in an order is hilarious with the fumbling and being placed on hold several times to be answered by someone else and have to repeat your order again.

June Morris

Today, I was disappointed in the lunches served to my husband and myself. We ordered the chopped sirloin steak. It was undercooked ground meat. I mentioned it to our waitress and, even though I was still eating my potatoes and gravy, she took my plate to show it to the manager and did not bring it back. The bill was reduced by 50% but our meals were a BIG disappointment!

Janice Fuzy

We haven't visited in a while but the food was great again. Service, atmosphere, attitudes & cleanliness were great as well. Thank you staff for providing an enjoyable dinner experience.

Lori Morton

Arrived there tonight with great expectation of having prime rib that was advertised on the local radio. I even called the night before to be sure the prime rib would be available on the menu. We were seated, after waiting because we were told there were no seats available at the moment, when half of the restaurant was empty. Once seated we chose the prime rib, only to be told they ran out of the prime rib an hour before. Asked to speak to the manager, who turned out to be the owner. Who was wearing ratty jeans and an old ratty shirt, very unprofessional. He became very belligerent and asked if we would like a complimentary drink. He was very rude and started cussing at us. Then he told us to leave and never come back. This was the first time we ever went to this establishment and I will not ever go back. Between the rudeness of the owner and the lack of the prime rib advertised, I will not ever go back and not recommend this place to anyone.

Kenneth Tindall

I really like the quiet, family atmosphere and prompt service. It is great to get a home cooked meal when I do not have time to cook for myself.

Susanna Simmons

Thanksgiving dinner 2018 at Blue Ridge Café was scrumptious everything was delicious the desserts the turkey the service the staff I would go back again

Joyce Hutchinson

I visited Blue Ridge Cafe a few nights ago with friends. The food & service was great. They were fairly busy but our waitress took great care of us. She was friendly & kept coming to check on us even though she had many many tables. We'll be sure to sit in her section the next time we visit BRC!!

Tenisha Jones-Baker

My husband and I went here for our 12th Anniversary and it was fabulous. The service, atmosphere and food was excellent. I can't wait to return for another date night.

Lisa Goodwin

I have visited this area every summer for 30 years and I always make it here. Friendly and good food and lots of choices. It started small and is a nice size. Chef Shawn never disappoints.

Parker McLeod

Nice wait staff and good food. Pricing is not to high either!

karen ballard

I ordered the Mandarin salad with grilled lemon pepper chicken on it. Was delicious

Mel A

Amazing Food!! Tess was such an amazing waitress, dont believe I've ever had better!!

Lisa Horning

Big menu. Big servings nice atmosphere chef Sean Hayes rocks

Christine Kaiser

Good food, friendly staff, great for private parties, full bar

George Royster Jr

This is a great restaurant. Staff very friendly with smiles, and the food was tremendous. To me this is the best place to eat in the whole county.

Mallorie Bryant

Very pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff. I had the Captain's Platter which consisted of fried shrimp (6), a generous portion of fish( not sure what kind and needed a little more seasoning, a nice sized crab cake( could have done with some lump crab meat and less filler), french fries and coleslaw. Overall the meal was good, no major complaints. Would I recommend this establishment to others, yes. Would I dine here again, of course. The price was very reasonable.

Crystal Schwind

They were very busy, but the service was efficient. The food was good.

Althea Aschmann

This place has vintage ambience and the service is excellent. I did not make the best menu choice, but the vegetables were fresh. Definitely worth checking out if in the vicinity

Bernadette McCort

Great service by our server, Heather. Kitchen staff VERY lacking. My meat loaf was scorched, the sauce on my daughter's pasta was completely diluted by the poorly drained noodles, literally SWIMMING in water in the bowl. Some confusion about the menu descriptions. And overpriced for the quality of the food.

Ron T

An establishment that has been open for “over two decades “has to • Heavily advertise on the local radio station. • Runs out of Prime rib by 5pm, dinner time. • Chef not dressed as on or in the kitchen running it. • The dining area almost empty due to lack of staffing. • The bar area was the suggested seating area. One should really look at the one and two star ratings of this place before making the trip. The radio station should also visit this place to really see what they are promoting.

Family fam

Have been to Blue Ridge Cafe many times and half the time it is good the other half it is not. Yesterday I had onion rings dripping with oil. My husband had ribs with hardly any sauce and cold mashed potatoes. Not going back. They did take cost of onion rings off our bill and after I complained they sent out mashed potatoes that were hot.

Dan Kleintop

Great food at reasonable prices with pleasant and efficient service. I'm looking forward to going back to try more of the great options on their menu.

Bob Moffett

Had a mandarin salad and it was very good. Wife had chicken salad sandwich. Outstanding!

Nathan Frantz

Decent local joint

Kacie Elliott

I was there for a gathering after a funeral. It was lovely. Food was amazing beer/ alcohol was good and cheap. I'll be back for sure

Jerett Burton

We we're guests of a private function, so we didn't get a chance to see the full menu. The options offered were great. I would rate it 5 stars, but my steak was a little over cooked so I would knock it down on star. The staff was excellent and attentive to our needs.

julie weimer

Went to a b'day party in the back. It was excellent!

Kayti Schumann

Excellent catering! I highly recommend these guys. Sue is AMAZING at communication and very flexible on arrangements so that you are sure to get exactly what you want for your event. The staff are also very helpful and were exactly where we needed them for the whole event. Five stars for sure!

Vickie Hartley

Awesome service and the food is delicious... Been there twice this week

Michael Timberlake

Great food, friendly & attentive service (waitress was Trish) and good prices.

Good food, nice staff. I wish we had a place so homey where we're from.

Robert Shiflett

Great food and service, family atmosphere.

Darlene Lee-Hill

Trina Dorrier

My Greek chicken sandwich was fabulous as usual. My sister ordered the crab cake sandwich which came out burned. The second order was too soggy
