Well, good places to eat around here are limited and hit or miss. Sometimes, the Mexican place on the hill off the 59 exit is good but the last few times, I did not enjoy my food. It tasted generic and the service was bad. It used to be great tho. The Rock Fire steakhouse was okay last night but not great. The best place I have found to eat around here lately is Dino's in London. The food is great and very fairly priced. Most dinners are around 6.99 to 7.99 and you will bring half of it home there is soooo much!!! It is really good. They have American, Italian, and Greek. I like the Greek the best.

Where is Dino's at in London? Sounds good.

It is off the second exit in front of Kroger, kinda. Across 192 from Kroger. Tried the steakhouse at renfro again and it was not even mediocre. I won't be back unless the crowd I am with chooses. Most things on the salad bar tasted spoiled. Potato salad, cornbread salad, pea salad, only the coleslaw did not have an
off-flavor. They were out of my first two choices on the menu, also. That is poor management.

There will never be a really "good" restaurant until this county emerges from the darkness of prohibition and allows alcohol sales. Nice restaurants sell drinks, as they should and we wont ever get one until we do the same. I hope you guys love greasy fast food. That is all we will get until things change. We have a ton of potential with all the lake traffic and other travelers going through Mt. Vernon why let Richmond get all our deserved taxed money. Its our own fault that we dont have anything here. Put it on a ballot people help our county compete.

I think John has taken what he's learned and put it to good use there. The Pantry and the Smoke House issues have shown him that there is a right and wrong way to do things. o far every time I've ate at Rock Fire it's been fantastic! And I'm pretty darn picky.

I had lunch with a group of friends at RockFire yesterday, and was VERY disappointed. I wasn't the only one. The staff was nice, but we had to ask for plates for the hot buffet (which was sadly limited and not impressive) and there is NO dessert bar! Good thing the company I was with was so satisfying, because the establishment definitely was not.

Well, give john a break. He is a vanwinkle after all. It does take a while for them to get things but only if they can get past their set ways.

as far as a desert bar they always have deserts out that go with the bar they may not have a whole bar of deserts but at least the ones they have are not frozen imitations of deserts they are fresh and homemade.

Yes Jim, you ARE being stupid! For God's sake, tell then not to wait for yellow caution tape to surround the place to be their sign. Stay away!
