A word from 419 West
419 West was opened to the public in May of 2002 by Roger Neel Jr. and Al Pollard, the same operators that started corned Beef and Company and Frankie Rowland's Steak House. The building, a former Shoney's Restaurant, was remodeled to the current state with the addition of a perfect dome in the middle of the dining room, a hand built mahogany bar, two private dining rooms, and a state of the art "open" kitchen. The kitchen features a wood burning oven, for our pizzas, and a charcoal grill seasoned with hickory chips, for our ½ Pound Certified Angus Beef hamburgers and St Louis Style Ribs. The style of food is considered American with slight influences from the around the world and all over the United States. Whether you would like a multi course sit down dinner or are just stopping in for a hamburger or a pizza, we have menu items to suit your wants or needs. We would love the opportunity to serve you, so stop by to try one of our simple yet elegant dishes.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Normally a hopping place, 419 West was having a quiet business day on our Sunday afternoon visit. Service was attentive and efficient. Food was 419 West predictably good. All members of our group enjoyed their meals."

  • "My son and his family visiting from China wanted to meet for lunch, your establishment was suggested by a dear frien and we were all delighted to find 419West. Service was warm and impecable, thanks to all the staff. The food was excellent and portions generous. We had a wonderful time and thank you all."

  • "We were blown away by 419 West. Our server Michelle was outstanding. She was attentive, knowledgable about the menu and suggested specials. The food was excellent and came out just as we expected. We found our new favorite place. Having been in DC the last 20 years, the prices were a pleasant surprise here for the quality we received."

  • "The food was great, especially the bread pudding. The only negative is that the room was a little too cold for me."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "OMG.....food was fabulous.....will return soon to try something else on the menu. We had chips for appetizer (awesome) Chicken and Shrimp with hickory crème sauce to die for and blackened swordfish with pineapple salsa wonderful, it was our first visit and the manager brought us the chocolate lava for desert, that was an unexpected gift. Very reasonable."

  • "I took my mother here, who is from out of town. It was her birthday and they were very accommodating and friendly. I had never been here either, personally. So it was a new experience for both of us and we both enjoyed it tremendously. Personally, the best part was the food. I ordered the steak, and it was perfect. I would recommend this to anyone."

  • "Visited here for a business dinner with a client on a weeknight. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. The glass wine storage between the bar area and the dining room is a nice touch. We had broiled Mahi and Chicken with pasta. Nice pinot grigio and split a crème brulee. The cost was under $100. Note: I suggest you make reservations even though they usually aren't needed on a weeknight. The parking lot may look full, but it doesn't mean the restaurant is full. They do a lot of private parties in special rooms in the back of the restaurant."

  • "It was good to have a dinner meeting at a banquet room or a salone."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I was very very disappointed at the service from this high scale restaurant. The only item the server brought to our table was our drinks. She only checked on us after we had eaten our food. The food itself was very good I just wish we wouldve been taken care of like the tables around us were. We may visit again but probably in the bar area and hope to have better service."

  • "Was there for Mothers Day Brunch and felt rushed. No silver ware for 10 minutes after we got our food. Normally I enjoy this restaurant however after this experience, it's leaving second guessing whether or not we will go back."

  • "The food was terrific, I had the rib eye and it was cooked the way i ordered it and the mashed potatoes were smashing, Everything was well seasoned and the service was terrific. The brick oven smore's were a big hit. The wine terrific. Over all a great experience "

  • "Food was very good but portions were much smaller than you normally get at the same price point"
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Four of us had a superb meal and excellent service. I highly recommend the steak choices. Even the side dishes were perfectly done. The asparagus was not overcooked. The surroundings and level of food are more in keeping with a much more expensive restaurant. Really good."

  • "Other than the hostess' mix-up with 'cancelling' our reservation, it was an enjoyable dinner."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "We had a group of nine. The service was great, but the food took over an hour to receive. I ordered the chicken salad on a croissant. My croissant was burned. The appetizer came out fairly quickly, but there was a lot of time between the appetizer and the main course. The menu selection was great. Prices were fair. Overall it was a good experience."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Went for Easter Brunch. Found restaurant slammed with people. Had to put us in the the bar area instead of dinning rooms. Disappointing as we had made reservations weeks in advance. Food bar had limited options. No rolls, eggs hard and dried out. Did not appear to be able to handle volume of diners thus foods were not replaced timely. Previous experiences good but this time was not."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "I very much enjoy dining at 419, it's a place we go with some regularity but it was interesting that they didn't have our reservation."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Our first visit to this restaurant will also be our last. The website, menu selection, ambiance, etc. eluded to the fact that our evening would be filled with delicious and unique foods and drinks. We were sadly mistaken. It seems that this restaurant was once a fine dining experience but is now little better than an average over priced flavorless waste of a good date night."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "This was one of the poorest meals I have had in the Roanoke area. Dreadful hamburger roll, huge, stale, and bland, overpowered the poor unmentionable burger inside. French fries were almost raw, limp, and way over seasoned with some dry sprinkle cheese and salt, salt, salt. Beer selection was what I would expect from a Ruby Tuesday's or other chain restaurant nothing interesting for a beer lover. I would not recommend this restaurant and I will not return."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "We went for a family birthday, and the food was outstanding allowing for choices for all age ranges and price points. It is rare for everyone at the table to enjoy their food immensely. Generously, they also included desserts for the birthday guests. However because of the room's acoustics the noise from talking made it nearly too loud to visit with the people in our party. This was nearly unbearable for my mother in law who has trouble because of her hearing distinguishing voices in the din."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "419 West is nothing special. Our server was super-friendly and helpful but the burgers were lackluster and somewhat dry. I cannot understand why this place is so popular? It seemed like sit-down fast food to us. Maybe it is heresy in Ro-noke to order a medium-rare burger? It is still Shoney's but with a bar and wood paneling. We will not be back."

  • "Had a reservation and were seated one hour after the reservation. After getting a table the service was wonderful."

  • "baby back ribs very tough; blackened Swordfish tasted like it had been caught 6 months ago. Corn chowder with crab mealy & lumpy. Just very unsatisfactory."

  • "Everything was what we imagined, food was great, service was exceptional. Thank you so much."

  • "Hannah was an excellent server. She was very attentive, yet let us leisurely order and enjoy our dinner. My citrus marinated Mahi Mahi was excellent. My guest enjoyed her Jazzbo. S'mores dessert was the only disappointment. Would definitely return!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The service was attentive and polite. I doubled ahi tuna appetizer for my main course and loved it. The salads are very fresh and the steaks are cooked perfectly to order. I have been to this restaurant many times over the years and find it a reliable choice."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. We dined there on New Year's Eve and found the restaurant well prepared for the increased business. Wait staff was very efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Went as a group of 3 for a business dinner. We were given the lists of specials along with the menu and server highly recommended them. All three of us chose the Blue Cheese Crusted Sirloin. Let me just say, that is the most amazing sirloin I've ever eaten! It looked and tasted more like a filet! It may have been an eye of the sirloin, but it was amazing! We are watching our calories 2 of our 3 opted for broccoli instead of rice, not a problem and good portion of fresh lovely florets in addition to the side of fresh green beans. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal!"

  • "We had our Christmas office party at 419 and had a wonderful time. The service and food was great! The restaurant was a little noisy, but that's to be expected this time of year. Plan to go back and take my family!"

  • "Went with a friend instead of ccooking second year in a row and was thoroughly impressed. Great menu and service. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The buffet was exceptional for the the price. Always pleased at Four Nineteen West."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "I made a reservation so that my husband and I could eat in the dining room - not the bar. And we ended up sitting on bar stools anyway because, according to the hostess, they just didn't have any tables for two people. So, we had to sit right next to the buffet, right in the line of traffic, behind a table of six. They were a lovely family who pulled the attention of not one, but TWO servers continuously throughout the meal - without even trying! They weren't flagging the staff down, but the wait staff ended up at that table four times as much (we counted) as ours. Despite the staff being nearby, we had to flag people down for everything Food was very plentiful and delicious - the staff tending the buffet were phenomenal."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "People very nice and accommodating! Food was set up and presented very nicely as well as tasting wonderful!!Spacing of reservations was good because not all tables were full at once which kept the buffet from getting too crowded. Loved the Christmas music playing, volume was just right!!!"
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "We were pleased with the overall offerings of the Thanksgiving Buffet, the turkey and ham were wonderful as were most of the side dishes. It was apparent the macaroni & cheese and some of the desserts were from institutional food service and not made on site, but there was plenty to satisfy. The peel & eat shrimp was totally tasteless without cocktail sauce, so I know that wasn't freshly done, either. Once we were seated it was annoying that I had to ask a hostess to send someone to wait on us after we'd been sitting there for at least 10 minutes (only a party of 3), but the server was fairly attentive thereafter. All in all it was a decent alternative to cooking at home for only 3 people, and we will probably consider this again."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Buffet was good, as far as buffets go. Nice variety of foods. (Probably better than average). I did notice, however, that items were not being replenished in a timely manner and the overall appearance of the food was not up to 419 standards."

  • "This was our first visit to 419 West. Over all we had a great experience. The staff was pleasant, and the food delicous. My favorite was the bacon wrapped scallops. I had the citrus MahiMahi, which didn't have a whole lot of flavor, but was cooked properly. I had it on rice pilaf instead of potatoes. I would have enjoyed a little more rice. The green beans were nice and crisp. My husband had the Chicken Parmesean. The chicken was seasoned well and very tasty. We look forward to going back and try some other items."
