Awesome food, awesome staff, awesome atmosphere! I have never had a bad meal! It's incredible!! You will not leave that place hungry or dissatisfied. YUM!
My first time going to Elliott's On Lanburnum and I must say it was overall an awesome experience!!! I went to visit a friend in Richmond she recommended that we go there if we wanted good soul food and drinks. The food, drinks, staff, environment, and comedy show was absolutely great!! I'm driving over an hour to go to the Sunday's Soul Food Buffet which was highly recommended.
My co-workers and I went to Supper on a Friday after work. When we made the reservations there was no mention of any "community table", maybe because there were 6 of us. The place is relatively small, and it was crowded. Our waitress seemed to rush us from the start and seemed annoyed when she was taking our order. The food was decent and came out hot, and that is pretty much the only part of the experience that was decent. Again they seemed rushed as they started taking up plates practically as soon as you finished putting the last bite in your mouth. Half way through our meal, they sat a couple at the very end of our table that we did not even know. The waitress brought our checks before we even asked for them. Some of the group wanted to continue to have drinks, it was then we were told that they had "booked our table for an 8 o'clock party and that we would have to "get up and stand at the bar".
Never went. Bought an internet coupon, they marked it used before I could use it. Called to clear this up, the manager suggested that I was lying. I will not be going there.
Visiting Richmond my party of 4 wanted to dine at this restaurant that had a spectacular menu on the website. Upon arriving we were seated. We were served our beverages and ordered our food. We sat at the table for nearly 45 minutes after ordering and still had not received the meals. When approaching the manager, he simply made excuses to try to smooth the situation. I waited another 5 minutes and still NO FOOD. I asked for my order to be cancelled. Horrible ending!
Hot Dogs are very tasty!!! Try one today!!
Nothing can compare to the price and foid portion you get. I get my monies worth everytime I go. Enough leftover for snack or dinner. Extremely Fast Service. Parking is bad but it's worth the extra mile walk and wait if need be:-).
the food was good I will advise people to try it long drive being were from Hampton but was worth it the only complaint I would have was the flies wow they were bad so much so we had to move tables in the middle of lunch fish was fresh food was good so ill fight the flies again to eat there
My husband and I were very pleased with this restaurant. Actually, we loved it. The seafood was fresh and prepared perfectly. The sides were homemade and portions were plentiful. Everything was delicious. The service was excellent so I must comment on the post about the restaurant being racist. We are white and went to the Old Towne location. We were treated the same as everyone else and no one stared. We were not the only whites in the restaurant and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The manager(owner?) even sat at our table and chatted with us. I would recommend this restaurant to everybody.
I hear the one in Richmond is much better. I even hesitate to say this, but it is the truth, so here goes. Petersburg is a "black" resturant. I'd heard food was wonderful. it was right good, BUT if you are white folks, be prepared for some really hard stares. (especially from the little heavy man that walks around in the black suit. The waitress and staff were all so kind and welcoming, right down friendly, I was told this man was an "owner" ? hard to imagine. Money is all green. His looks, flat out stares made it difficult for me to swallow the food. When we left, he even walked to the window near the door and glared at us until we were in our car and driving away. OMG... he was sooo rude,,,, Because of him I'll never go there again.. All I can say is...IF he was the manager...too bad they can't get rid of him.
