We were visitng friends at Smith Mountain Lake and the Blackwater Cafe was recommended. My wife and I had just a great experience. The food and service were outstanding but so was the ambiance etc. Usually you find great food but the service is missing but not in this case. I could tell by speaking with the owner that he has a tremendous passion for what he is doing and it shows. Best luck for continued success. Keep doing what you are doing and you will continue to be the best at the lake. Ron and Beth Marston

Their slogan "Your Dining Experience is our Priority" is right on target. The owner and the staff were top notch and you can tell and feel that they care. Food was absolutely tremendous and the ambience the same. Highly recommend if you are visiting the Smith Mountain Lake area. Ask for the owner

Food and service superb. Two dining venues; one fancier than the other. Soothing updated lodge-like decor. The staff goes to great length to ensure satisfaction.

Wonderful restaurant with great ambiance and service. The food was just top shelf especially for an area like this. I thought I was in a big city somewhere. The presentation was great and the food was even better. The wine list extensive and something for everyones taste. I highly recommend this restaurant and ask for the owner when you go in as he is very outgoing with some great stories.

While traveling from NY to SC, we stopped to dine at The Blackwater Cafe in Moneta, VA for what turned out to be a dining experience of unbelievable caliber! The restaurant reflects the intense focus on detail that extends to cuisine, presentation, mood, and surroundings. The warm atmosphere, creative use of colors and lighting, was most welcoming, even before we ordered. The staff moved with confident, uncalculated ease, and they were all efficient and friendly. Now for the food-it was difficult deciding among the diverse menu items. All the seafood was fresh, the beef was certified Angus, and the pasta at the next table was most tempting. The exquisite food was the best ever, and nearly outdone by the creative presentation. The wine list was excellent. The appetizers were mouth-watering and we ordered entrees of Tasmanian salmon and ahi tuna that was better than any NY city restaurant, and we dine often in NY! Their desserts were fabulous and, again, presented with unbelievable flair. There was nothing ordinary about our meal. The owners and chef were witty and charming and their visits to our table were most enjoyable! We cant wait to travel back again to try more of their entrees and to take pleasure in the experience!

I VISITED THIS RESTAURANT ON A FEW OCCASSIONS. THE FOOD WAS WONDERFUL AND YOU ACTUALLY GOT FOOD ON YOUR PLATE. THE PORTIONS ARE GREAT FOR THE PRICES. I ALSO VISITED DURING BREAKFAST. THE CHOCOLATE CHIP PANCAKES ARE TO DIE FOR. EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE HAD HAS BEEN GOOD. NOT A BAD ITEM ON THE MENU. DINNERS ARE A BIT PRICY-BUT WORTH THE MONEY.

PROS: GREAT FOOD
CONS: TOO FAR TO DRIVE-MAKE IS A SPECIAL OCCASSION
