Very good meal. Waitress was wonderful.

The Virginia Diner is a landmark for everyone in Eastern Virginia, and it is still capable of producing Southern Fried Chicken almost as good as my Grandmother’s was. They are not as careful of their Country Ham as they used to be, and there are reasons and excuses for that. But I think it will always be worth a visit, even from many ... read more

Buffet bit as large as before Covid-19 some items were dried out and not warm enough. Others were fine.

This restaurant captures the charm of the commonwealth! Such a sweet place to if you want to capture the essence of Virginia home cooking!

We had a great meal from the Virginia Diner. We had a gift card to use and placed our “to-go” order at the counter with Zaire. She was quite knowledgeable with the menu and was very pleasant. We both ordered a tenderloin sandwich with onion rings. The food and service was fantastic and would highly recommend the Virginia Diner. Ma ... read more

Great pit stop for travelers! Good food, nice prices,super waitstaff. They come by their reputation rightfully. Grab a can of their famous peanuts while you are there!

Friendly and courteous service. The food was not up to par. The beef liver was overcooked (well done), I ordered medium rare. The grilled onions were crunchy, homemade mac and cheese was tasteless, dry, lacking any seasonings. The collards were too salty. The for stars are for our server only....

Another excellent meal at The Virginia Diner. Great food and service. It's really nice to see Veteran support from their management team and owners. Had a free two piece chicken dinner with two sides and hush puppies (choice of biscuit instead). Very clean establishment. Was greeted immediately after entering and enjoyed the entire e ... read more

I was passing through, heading to VA Beach and this place caught my eye. It was a quick stop to check out this place. The outside of the restaurant does not look too appealing, but once you step foot inside it looks completely different. The inside looks very well-

First time visiting since the change in management. Nicely decorated and it was good to see some of the same wait staff. Ms. Patricia was great and very attentive. I didn't go for the buffet, however, it looked very appealing. I tried the seafood platter and collards. I've been coming to the diner for years and has always had ... read more

It was nice but we won't be going back. I enjoyed the service but really wasn't impressed by the food. My curiosity has been satisfied.

Delicious home cooked meals! Be sure to check it out if you're near by. The fried chicken is amazing.
The North American Sportsman via - Nov 4, 2020
Best burger I've had in a while. Bun was toasted and lightly buttered till the bread was just the right amount of crunchy to soft, the burger itself was juicy and full of flavor, but don't get me started on the collards. Y.U.M.

I live in Newport News so this place is a little out of the way. But if I'm near the Virginia Diner it's a must stop for lunch or dinner. All the food is carefully prepared and delicious. The fried chicken is my favorite and the ribs are fall off the bone fantastic! You won't be disappointed.

Virginia Diner is classic high quality country food with great service, in a clean environment! We are "foodies" and don't normally eat a lot of fried , high carb stuff but we make an exception for Virginia Diner! We love their Fried Chicken, pulled pork, and peanut pie. We can't drive through Wakefield without stopping!

The sandwich was kind of bland, nothing too special to it. Fries were awesome! The restaurant is extremely clean and well kept. Very covid friendly seating. Waited in a long line to pay our tabs/buy Virginia diner peanuts and goodies.

Well worth the wait for the Virginia Diner peanuts and treats!

A Virginia Classic
Stopped here for the first time in a year or two. Was pleasantly surprised to see the place has been completely remodeled. It's a nice new fresh look. The food is good. Had a tasty cheeseburger and fries. The fries were really tasty.
