Cafe at Maidens

Reviewed By B W - Midlothian, Virginia

On Rt. 522 in the middle of nowhere this converted gas station/ retail market is worth the stop. Breakfast and gourmet sandwiches this cafe is open 6 days a week. Breakfast includes cinnamon pancakes, knockwurst and eggs, ham and cheese and veggie lovers delight. Specialty sandwiches include the sailor, cheesesteak, Pohatanian club, the Polish Boy, the Virginian, and the standard bacon Turkey and Swiss. Salads and kids menu available along with catering and platters. Small place, friendly service. Worth the drive for sure. The new Powhatan State Park is right up the road,

Sweet Shop Donuts Cafe

Reviewed By johnwD4389WX - Amelia Court House, Virginia

We stopped in for donuts, but were impressed with their sandwich menu, that we decided have a bite to eat. We were also impressed with the ambiance of the restaurant and inviting cafe layout. I had the angus burger, which was delicious. My wife had the club sandwich, which was also delicious. Since we were full, we decided to take several of their donuts home and eat later. I am a big fan of the Sugar Shack donuts and must say that Sweet Shop Donuts are just as good. I would recommend this cafe.

Bruster's Ice Cream

Reviewed By 48mel

On our visit to Bruster's tonight, there were very few flavors available, it's Mother's Day shouldn't there be a good selection, so I ordered a reece's cup blast which was all vanilla ice cream with just a few reece's cup pieces on top...I asked if the cups were supposed to be mixed in the blast and they said yes and would I like more.....they put more on top. I've had this many times and this is the worst blast I've had. My husband had a hot fudge sundae and could barely find the chocolate, 2 little tiny squirts. If Bruster's hadn't been so busy I would have taken it back and asked for more chocolate.
Is Bruster's cutting back on ingredients or the workers just don't care, aren't trained or busy talking to friends. Maybe a combination of all of the above but that is no way to run a business.
Guess we won't be going back to Bruster's for quite awhile.

El Cerro Azul

Reviewed By Paul W - Winthrop, Maine

A small Mexican restaurant with great atmosphere and delicious Mexican food. Had the street tacos with refried beans and both were excellent, among the best tacos I’ve had. The chips were served with the usual tomato salsa but also with a cheesy sweet sauce - both very good. Service was swift and friendly. The servers helped each other with a nice camaraderie. Highly recommend Cerritos Azul.

Our first time here at Allen's and must say we were impressed! We were visiting family in the area and they took us here. Service was fast and accurate, portions were very large and food quality was excellent, could not clear my plate due to the amount of food served. Rice with meal was perfect and prices very reasonable.

Four Seasons Restaurant

Family owned and operated, we provide a family friendly atmosphere specializing in Italian, Greek, and American cuisine. Established in 2004, Four Seasons has continued to strive to bring you great food and great customer service throughout the years. Enjoy a seat by the fire in colder months, or a place on our patio as the weather warms up. And make sure to leave room for our homemade desserts!

Reviewed By Lawrence N - Powhatan, Virginia

04/23/2017 we stopped in for a mid afternoon meal . Due to prior experience, this restaurant is not my first choice.(spaghetti served ice cold, pasta served with standing water in the bowl, fried oyster dinner with no oysters). Today we ordered hot coffee, coffee served warm with red lipstick on the lip of the cup. That did it. We left!!

Quality control is lacking!

County Seat Restaurant

Reviewed By Julie M - Eastern Shore of Virginia, Virginia

The weekend dinner buffet is delicious. All of your southern favorites including catfish, roast Turkey, mashed potatoes, etc. were available and served hot & fresh. Save room for desert! Everything is homemade and there are like 20 items to choose from including pies, cakes, cobblers, and more! The seating outdoors was enjoyable. Waitress was wonderful. Highly recommended for a visit!

Was camping in the area and stopped at the Food Lion for groceries. Saw Osaka Hibachi & Sushi - couldn't resist popping in for a Salmon Roll. Got it to go - made fresh and fast. It was excellent - really hit the spot! I'd go back anytime I'm in the area and highly recommend it to all.

Revisited Angela's for dinner this month after a year or so of only visiting for lunch. Pizza and spaghetti were quite good, service was friendly and quick, atmosphere cozy. Angela's has always been a great spot for lunch but now seems to be also not bad for a casual family dinner.
