Ordered for Easter. Food was fabulous and plentiful! Had the ham, roast beef, collards, carrot casserole, mashed potatoes, and banana pudding. The carrot casserole is unbelievable. Can't wait to get more. Collards are great, too.

Breakfast buffet was great!
Alisha Marchant via - Mar 16, 2020
It was my first time eating there. They easily accommodated a family dinner of about 20 people. The server Jackson was very polite and served us with ease. The buffet was delicious especially the beets. I'm not a fan of catfish but I will say the catfish was delicious. If you're every driving on 460 heading towards Suffolk check them ... read more

The service and food was impeccable, my family has always patronized the Virginia Dinner. I have so many memories eating here with my grandparents. Everytime I come to Wakefield, VA to see my family; I will stop here for at least one meal. Thank you for the memories as well as great hospitality.

There was no waiting to be noticed. The waitresses are on the ball with ensuring you have your stomach's desire.

Very friendly staff greet
Very friendly staff greet you at this country, home cooking diner. Small market in front allows you to bring some goodies home! Great place to get IMO some Virginia ham.

Was in the area for work and driving down that long road to get back to Maryland.  I was hungry and couldn't pass up a chance to go to the famous Virginia Diner.  It is very much your typical southern style restaurant.  The people that worked there were very nice; which is such a pleasant treat to a Marylander that is used to rude wa ... read more

I originally visited the Virginia Diner a few years ago and was unimpressed all around. I visited again last week and the food was amazing. The staff was amazing. I don't know what changed but the Virginia Diner is a once again "Must Visit" stop!

Great home cooking. Plentiful serving size. Good value. Courteous service.

Truly great treat!
So I drove all the way out to the Virginia Diner from Roanoke. I did so because it was a diner that was featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. And it was a lovely drive on a beautiful day, so not a bad time. Anyway,...More ... read more

Ribs like leather. Everything on buffet very nondescript and blah.

I was only going there because we were taking my mom out to eat. I'm vegetarian and so it wouldn't be my choice. I understand their fried chicken is very good and my brother and his family really like the carrot souffle. My husband was unimpressed with their ham biscuits. I had a grilled cheese which was good.

It's ok. A landmark place to stop. The food is ok. I don't buy peanuts here anymore because of the Non-GMO Project verified on the containers...a marketing gimmick.

Having only been here maybe 3 times in my life, (and it was many years ago), I can really only speak to my experience today. Most of my family had the buffet, but I had the grilled chicken wrap with fries. It was very good, and our server was fast and polite. This place is a historical landmark, having been here since 1929. The dinin ... read more

Virginia Diner was a treat!  A beautiful drive in the countryside leads you to a charming old restaurant and shop. We arrived on a Sunday evening where they had a buffet plus regular menu offerings.

William Harris via - Feb 9, 2020
For all the hype, we thought this would be a great place to eat. But it was bland and tasteless. It felt like, and tasted like, we were eating in a high school cafeteria. We were not impressed.
Marcie Avans via - Feb 9, 2020
I had a Pulled Pork BBQ sandwich that was huge! The Cole slaw was good - not soupy - and the Texas Pete was on the table. Their ham biscuits are worth the trip too.
