Would totally eat here again. Amazing prime rib sandwich and the au jus to top it off. The owner is a very nice man and was happy to say welcome. The prices are very reasonable.

I've always liked Sir Walter Raleigh Inn for the quality of the food, the 70's home style ambience and the unlimited soup & salad bar. The staff is both friendly and competent, and one of the owner's even makes regular rounds, visiting each table, just...More
