It is a new restaurant, and they need a few weeks to work the kinks out. Cut them a break this time. We ate there last weekend and the food was good, they just need a little time to get things running smoothly. We need small businesses like this in our town and we should do our best to support them and understand when there are problems as they are just getting started.

the woman in the kitchen is melissa, the owner. The food is great, but she needs to get better waitresses if she plans to be successful. The ones working when ive been there have no people skills or personality...i wanna see this place do well so hopefully the staff changes once shes open a few weeks

Went there last Friday night. The place was full and had to wait on a table. While we were standing there, I overheard two different customers complaining to the waitresses about waiting such a long time for their food. Ultimately, we ended up leaving and going to Bob Evans.

As the previous poster stated; once the bugs are worked out, it might be a good place to eat.

I haven't had the chance to stop in and check them out. I plan to though, Oak Hill does need small businesses to keep us going. I'm glad to see someone putting the Old LJS building to good use, we don't need another abandoned building just going to waste.

have to say ive been there 3 times and the food has been outstanding. Waitresses are new but doing all they can do. you have to remember its says mellisas coutry kitchen. nothin about fast food in that name. good hot home cooking is not fast or pre made and stuck in microwave. enjoy some home cooking and support local business.

I've eaten there. The food is great, the prices are good, and the people are super nice. Yes...it is a new restaurant, and they need time to get things running smoothly. While I was there, they had only one waitress, and she was running her butt off. She got my order wrong, but it was okay. I understand what she was going through. Maybe if others had empathy for other people, instead of complaining if things aren't perfect....they would have a much better experience. I will definitely go back there.
So glad

I just hope this isnt another business that will be closed in 6months!!!!!! Everyone needs to support local businesses if they dont want to see Oak Hill turn into Scarbro or Thurmond. STOP LITTERING, STOP VANDALIZING EVERYTHING!!!! STOP LETTING YOUR KIDS BE LITTLE CRIMINALS BECAUSE YOU ARE JUST SENDING THEM DOWN A BADDD PATH!

THIS PLACE IS MUCH MUCH MUCH....BETTEER THE THAT NASTY, FILTHY, UNSANITARY MCDONALDS NEXT TO IT!!! DID YOU HERE MCDONALDS IS TAKING AWAY $1.00 fries and sodas.

EVERYONE NEEDS TO SUPPORT THIS NEW PLACE AND EXPECIALLY ALL THE OTHER SMALLER LOCALLY OWNED BUSNESSES, BECAUSE THEYLL BE THE ONES TO CLOSE, NOT THESE BIG BRAND PLACES!...""" "NOW JUST GET A NEW MAYOR/CITY COUNCIL, AND POLICE FORCE AND THIS PLACE MAY BE NICE""""=)

Actually, the ones that have a wait are usually the ones you want to go to. People like them and the food is usually fresher bc sales are high.

That place was gross. The food I got tasted horrible! And the waitresses are slow and have no idea what they are doing. I think that this is all the waitresses first job... Yeah, that's okay..they have to start somewhere, but the owner needs to hire a few girls that actual have some experience and that can train these girls what to do. When I went there, I had like 3 different waitresses. One would walk up to us, tell us about the special they had, then walk away. Then 5 or so minutes later, another would walk up and ask the same exact thing. That happened with another girl as well. They need some serious training. One waitress should be assigned to a table..not 2 or 3. Maybe once they get some better staff in there, it won't be so bad.

And.. btw.. the sweet tea is HORRIBLE!

Just stating my opinion.
hmmm

If you are having such troubles with the waitresses then speak with the owner (privatley) and tell here instead of getting on the internet behind a fake name badmouthing. Maybe it is their first job, is you would do so well then ask for an application! If you hate the staff so much bring it to the owners attention to try an find someone with experience!

psh, please. I'm not going to "downgrade" my experience from what I do now... I would never work in a place like that, even if I was 16 looking for my first job. AND this is topix...it is to state your own opinion on things. You're hiding behind a fake name and badmouthing. Maybe you should re-read what you wrote..you may learn something from it.:)
