Chicken salad had too much seasoning, rosemary maybe? It was sent back. The country fried steak and gravy with mashed potatoes was delicious, pimento burger was great too. The fried green tomatoes and pimento puppies were also yummy. Peanut Pie is very rich, and lots of peanuts.

Newly renovated, clean, bright, yet nostalgic of its nearly 100yr history, this place has excellent service, food and local peanuts! Really great, and the prices are properly assigned.

The restaurant was clean, and the service was fast and friendly. The food was good, and there were generous portions. No complaints at all!

This place had very good food and a nice shop with a variety of different foods to purchase. It took a bit for the food to come out, but worth the wait.

The cookies at the bakery are awesome with a capital A. Buy at least one when you leave.

Great food! The service was a little below par as they got the order wrong. But they demonstrated great customer service by apologizing sincerely and making the order correct and offering some freebies for the inconvenience. We will eat here again.

We had a wonderful buffet lunch at Virginia Diner, it was on the expensive side, but the food was really delicious, and the service was terrific! It's a very popular place so it was quite loud if that's a concern for you.

Once again Virginia Diner didn't disappoint. Buffet was awesome.
Michael McGarrity via - Jun 11, 2022
Food was as good, almost certainly better, as any other diner or sit down restaurant I've been in. Service was impeccable. I've never had country fried steak the way it's supposed to be prepared and it was delicious. I'm hoping we will we passed by there on our way back home as I'd like to stop again!

The actual restaurant is beautiful, spacious and welcoming. The food is a hit or a miss, I genuinely think it's the difference in what cook is there. I've never thought it was bad but I have had meals I was disappointed in. Though all the same I've had amazing food! Their meatloaf is my favorite from any restaurant I've been too. The ... read more

We were here on a day that they offered the buffet and menu so we had the pleasure of experiencing both. This is truly the experience of a lifetime!

I've never been to the diner; however, I order their products. I usually get peanuts, but decided to try some of their other products. The sake peanuts and butter toasted peanuts are AMAZING. The Peanut Brittle and Caramel covered marshmallows are pricey and not my cup of tea. The brittle doesn't taste like traditional brittle in my ... read more

I’ve been stopping by the Virginia Diner on my way back from OBX in NC since I was a kid and it’s always a highlight of the trip! Their renovation a few years ago really freshened up the place while still keeping that charm we’ve loved for all these years. I like to get the combo meal with fried chicken and pulled pork - plus the gre ... read more

What's up with the one biscuit with a meal. That's all that is supplied. Then certain groups get free biscuits to take home. Strange !

Welcoming diner. Plenty of parking - even with a camper. Service was pretty good. Biscuits and gravy was good. Big, fluffy biscuits and hot gravy. Potatoes were old and cold. :( They need to know how to "scramble" an egg. :( Hubby got fried eggs, and were really good. Ham is always delish. Grits had zero seasoning, and were so watery ... read more

Clean, bright, friendly, surprisingly quick even when busy. No masks. Diner type food. A little on the expensive side. Also a buffet available. Big windows.

Stopped here while traveling on mother's day for breakfast. They were only offering the buffet for breakfast which I understand. However there was no product rotation. Witnessed several staff members bring pan out to just dump on top of the items left in the pan. Eggs were undercooked and runny. Nothing special...
