We stopped by one​ evening, tired and hungry. Meal was great and service even better. Second visit, the food was still very good, but, the service crew was under staffed and not as attentive or as friendly.

The restaurant is nearly hidden as the parking lot isn't user friendly for patrons. They have a busy noisy bar on one side and a nondescript restaurant with a few tables and a place to pick up carry out. We ordered drinks and in looking at the menu, there seems to be more seafood than other selections but they did... More

Have been there for both lunch and dinner; excellent food and service on each visit. Reuben was very good; best chicken wings in the area

We made reservations for a group of 4 for 7 pm. We arrived on time a were greeted and seated promptly on the sports bar side, which was a little loud. The servers were most attentive and provided very good service. The food arrived in in proper order where I was allowed adequate time to finish my soup before the... More

My wife and I and another couple kind of stumbled on Memories Charcoal House by accident. We were traveling down I-70 and decided to get some dinner. We pulled off at Mt. Airy were looking for a restaurant listed on the GPS in the same area (and with a very similar name) but that place evidently has gone out of... More

We have eaten at Memories several times in the past few years. The food is always well-prepared,and affordable. One side is a Sports Bar and game-viewing room, the other side is a dining room. We went there today to celebrate a 4-year-old grandson's birthday. There were 11 of us, 5 of them children. The wait staff could not have been... More

We typically get take out for ribs. Their ribs are the BEST! Moist and great flavor. I wouldn't waste the calories on the coleslaw but the beans are good.

Local spot, everybody knows everybody. Difficult to find, located in a strip mall shopping center. Even the GPS didn't pinpoint it. We found it by driving around the strip malls. Service was very good, waited on use immediately. Menu had a lot of choices, couldn't make up our minds. I finally opted for the "Express Lunch" $8.00 - soup or... More

I went out for drinks last night with a few friends. We weren't rowdy or obnoxious, just simply sat over a few drinks. Compared to the crowd there we were downright boring. My husband came after work and I had bought a drink for him and at 12:41am (i specifically checked) a bouncer with an attitude came over and told... More

Throughout our 20 years in Mt. Airy, we've eaten here on and off. When the last 6 months, we've been here numerous times and have not been disappointed. Their clams in white wine sauce is a real treat, as is their crab pretzel dip..yummy!
