Pros: Restaurant Review Petro Virginia Glade Spring
- There was plenty of just
everything on the hot and cold bars when we came through.
entrees that we ate were the fried chicken, sliced beef, lasagna and
- Mike thought the lasagna
was really good.
- The hot vegetables
we ate included
green beans, mashed potatoes, carrots and corn.
- Vicki note that the
cooked carrots were firm, not mushy.
- There were two types of
soup and rolls available but we didn't eat any.
- The salad bar carried
common items including iceberg lettuce, cucumber slices, cherry
tomatoes, raw cauliflower, baby corn, croutons, sunflower
seeds, and whole boiled eggs.
- Mike topped off
his salad with a
- Vicki topped off her
salad with cottage cheese, which appeared to have nothing added to it
(just the way she likes it).
- One of Mike's favorite
dishes at this restaurant is their fresh fruit salad, composed of
cantaloupe, honeydew melon, pineapple, orange segments and red grapes.
He also got some strawberry chunks to go on it. Yum!
- We both had the German
chocolate cake for dessert. Yum!
Cons: Restaurant Review Petro Virginia Glade Spring
- In the past, the service at
this restaurant has been excellent. During this particular visit, we
were very disappointed. When we asked for "water with lemon," the lemon
wedges arrived in the water, not perched on the edges of the
glasses or pitcher. The levels of water in our glasses and pitcher were
not watched, so we had to ask for a second pitcher of water. The first
person to wait on us was not the person whose name was on the receipt.
Our used dishes, used napkins and squeezed out lemon rinds were not
whisked away quickly. We wonder if the second person who came by our
table (who only handed us our check and extra napkins) was going by a
nickname derived from the name on the receipt. The only thing
we can figure regarding the "service" we received is that the second
person who came by must have been on break when we first came in, so
the first person was filling in for her. While both waitresses were
friendly, neither of them did a very good job of monitoring our table.
For this reason, we hesitate to mention their names online.
- The fried fish could have been
hotter and crisper.
