It's always a challenge to find a quality location for a family meal on Thanksgiving. The last several years we had to drive to Charlottesville to find that meal when we visited our daughter in Lynchburg. This year, we decided to try the Crown Sterling as it offered a T'giving buffet plus its regular menu (and this is very unusual).... More

I must admit....I was a bit disappointed. Isn't what it once was years ago. Haven't been there in a couple of years, and sadly, probably won't be back for a few more years. Met my son there for lunch. Checked out the lunch menu online before going. Had my heart set on the Steak Gorgonzola Salad. Menu online said the... More

This was a restaurant selected by my son-in-law. He and my daughter had been considering dinner here, but hadn't tried it yet. We made reservations and checked out their location and menu online. I found the service and food to be very good. We were seated promptly and never made to feel that we were guests and not another party... More

Plush, classy decor. Never felt rushed throughout dinner. Being from out of town we weren't sure quite what to expect. Looked online at the menu and it seemed as though there was something everyone would enjoy. I had the 10 ounce prime rib. Cooked medium rare. I couldn't fathom just how much 10 ounces of meat was. Ended up taking... More

The Friday and Saturday specials are wonderful. Dessert of cherry wine parfait is worth a long drive.

We were there for a family event and were served in our own room. The decor was very good. I had a rib eye steak and it was excellent. All the group who had steaks were well pleased. The other entrees did not seem as good. The salad bar is ample but nothing special. The house wine selection was good... More

This is a old favorite for us and with the exception of the sweet potato that was not done our food was delicious. The improvements to the salad bar were good, like the new plates that replace the old small bowls. Our waiter however was off him game completely. Very distracted. I had to remind him of our side of... More

As a business traveler I frequent the locally owned and operated establishments. Although I have dined here some time ago I must say my dining experience this evening was unparalleled in every regard. The atmosphere is classic, quiet and inviting. Tables are tastefully set with linen. The dinner menu offers a wide variety of inviting entrees with prices from $16... More

We three couples totally enjoyed a delightful evening at The Crown. Had early reservations & was glad because they had full house. Staff was outstandingly attentive without being obtrusive. Plenty of service so there was no waiting for any course. Best Salad Bar anywhere around! Steaks were tender & cooked to perfection. ( Note: all six of us had different... More
