We go here every year on our Anniversary because it is where we had our rehearsal dinner. The food was great and the service was excellent. We are very glad to see former employees bringing it back to it's roots.

My wife and I had our first date at this restaurant in January 1971. We have enjoyed coming here year after year. I would be afraid to guess how many times we have enjoyed the service and meals here at the Crown Sterling. We just enjoyed another meal here tonight, April 21, 2017. The salad bar is fantastic and the... More

Been going here 30 + years and never had a bad meal. Great steaks time after time. Staff is attentive and an overall comfortable place to dine. Salad bar is also the best in Lynchburg.

I am so sorry that you are disappointed!! We usually don't take old gift certificates and when you came to the front to talk to me about it that evening, I was on the phone with a customer. I had decided that I was going to make an exception for you but you left and said that you would call... More

My husband said his burger was one of the best he has ever had. Cooked over charcoal fixed to his liking (rare), he was a happy man. The sides were just okay, he chose the Mac and cheese and pasta salad. Not worth the calories. Service was attentive and nice. We would go back.

Had our club's business meeting at The Crown & Everyone enjoyed their meal, the ambiance & superior service Jordan provided. Price for our neals had to be the best bargain in Lynchburg. (Drink included in price of the meal also.) We will be back soon!

Ate prime rib sandwich which was dry with gristle. Sides were in very small plastic cups about 1 tablespoon. Local people love the food, but I was not.

We went there on the weekend before. Reservation @7 got there 15 min. early & we're seated right away. I had the host choice & was fantastic as usual, she had chicken cordon Bleu & wasn't as good as it used to be possibly prepared by a food service company. Atmosphere is great & service was right on.

We went to Crown Sterling this evening. We had reservations for 730 but arrived at 7 & they were able to seat us right away. The decor has a traditional vibe, dim lights & romantic setting. We were seated right away but it took quite awhile for a server to even come greet us, that we looked around after awhile... More
