January 2021 Snow

We received about five to six inches of snow. The Virginia Department of Transportation did a great job in clearing the local roads. Our parking lot has been plowed and we will resume normal business hours tomorrow, Wednesday, January 3.

3 Inches of Snow – So Far

The below picture was taken Wednesday afternoon around 12:30 pm. Approximately two inches of snow has fallen. Roads are still in very good shape thank you to the VDOT crews clearing the roads.

Be safe and enjoy the snow!

First Snow Day

SNOW! Our first snow fall started just a few minutes ago. Big flakes and coming down fast. VDOT has been keeping the roads open as we all enjoy the beautiful pictures of winter.

Frosty The Snowman

Frosty the snowman showed up after we received a few snow flurries this past Tuesday evening.

We all really need some holiday cheer this year. So Frosty has paid us a visit and promised to stick around at least through the end of the year. It is quite a site to see especially in the evening once the sun has gone down.

Inside Seating Available

We now offer both inside and outside seating.

Starting May 15, 2020, outside seating on our deck and picnic tables were made available.

Starting Friday, June 5, 2020, inside seating in our dining room was made available.

Virginia’s Governor is currently authorizing 50% capacity in our dining room.
