Had found this place on Facebook where they posted pictures of their specials that always look awesome. Finally got there and were sooooo not disappointed. This is a local venue where everyone knows each other. Great southern charm and service and the BEST onion rings in VA by far. While they had many great items on the menu we opted... More

What a great find! Vicky will take good care of you and tell you the history of the place if you're new! Lunch was delicious, well prepared and seasoned. Sit up at the round counter to enjoy the local conversation. Hoping to stop back through this little town again soon!

I used to go to the Horseshoe when I was very little and I remember it being so welcoming; now, 20 years later, changed owners, different food, and redecorating, the place is still one of my favorite places to eat. Local folks serving up delicious food with a country smile. I have it on good authority that the Reuben is... More

I had lunch here on a Friday afternoon. If you didn't see the current model cars in the parking lot, you might think you've morphed into the past when Route 1 was the major highway North/South on the east coast. Route 1 has seen many better days, but I can't imagine the food, service and prices ever being any better... More

Let me just start with the ambiance of The Horsehoe. It is a restaurant from the past that has been revitalized not in the glitz of what you see now, but in the original feel from a time long past. Now let's talk about the employees. The owner roams around to each table to ask how their dining experience is... More

The Horseshoe has been closed but it will be opening again soon under the same owners. I cannot wait. The pies are outstanding however I usually am too full to eat dessert. The burgers are great, and my favorite is the Clydesdale. The Clydesdale has a burger, homemade pimento cheese, bacon, and fried green tomato. Unbelievable. Other sandwiches and meals... More

Service was fantastic. Food was fabulous and pie was amazing. There is a bunch of neat pictures and antiques inside the restaurant. I think my husband spent more time looking at all the history instead of spending time with me :) Our waitress loved her job and was very friendly. I had a great time and plan on going back.

So sorry to lose the best restaurant in southside Virginia, with imaginative, well-prepared food, often locally sourced; no one has done it better, or even come close. Our very best to the owner, Scott, as you take a well-deserved Victory lap before closing this week to take some time off, care for yourself and plan your next move. We'll be... More
