    The service was great. There were two problems though. First our appetizer came out and it had hair on the cucumber. Secondly asked for no bacon and cheese in a wrap and the wrap had bacon and cheese. Our server was wonderful and took care of us.

    This place is lively enough to make up for it not being the typical romantic date atmosphere. I would describe it as more of a sports-bar atmosphere, but the food is good enough and the staff is good enough to make this an excellent spot for a fun date.

    Usually a place we go to a lot but this experience was terrible mainly because of the server. I ordered a Pinot noir wine and she brought a Pinot Grigio. Then she argued with me that all Pinot were white!! I ordered a ceaser salad with chicken. It arrived and no chicken! Later she came with a piece if dried chicken on a plate. Very upsetting experience!

    I had forgotten this resturant. I got a reservation here on Mother's day really because it was the only place I could find. They were only taking reservations thru open table. Good thing the wait time without a reservation was 1 1/2 hours. They had a buffet for Mother's day. The food was really great, and the waiter, Sumner, was outstanding.

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    The restaurant is lovely with its soaring wood beam ceiling and wonderful patios. However, the brunch food was not worth $20 a head. There was no omelet station or meat carving station. All the meat was overdone from sitting in the serving dishes. The variety consisted more of lunch items than breakfast. No salad bar just a one pre-made salad. We had four in our party and I shelled out over $100 with tip--would have been better off ordering from the menu. Server was great and the staff moved our reservation with no problem. We were celebrating Easter at the restaurant and the buffet did not have anything special to commemorate the occasion. Great restaurant to order off the menu--stay away from the brunch.

    Decided to go here for lunch February 15th with our kids instead of shoemakers on February 14th. The menu had giant selection. They still had the valentines special. It was quiet, calm, and peaceful. We found something to eat for the whole family. Our waiter was the best we've had at any restaurant. I recommend the Tridents Trio and pork chops. When it gets warm, try eating on the deck. I highly recommend Neighbors Place and cannot wait to eat there again.

    Loved the Neighbor's Place! Was trying to find a reservation for Valentine's Day and wanted to try something new so I booked a reservation here with OpenTable and had a great time. My steak was excellently cooked, very juicy and tender, and my date enjoyed her dish as well. Will definitely return.

    We sat in the bar area in an empty booth, were trying to get a booth in the restaurant area but there was a wait. So found this empty booth in the bar area, and soon found out why it was empty. The carry out door was on the other side of the room and a cold wind blew in every time someone opened the door. Otherwise everything was great

    Given Lynchburg's restaurant challenges, we tried The Neighbors Place based upon various on-line reviews. My wife had a Filet and Lobster Tail. The filet was cooked properly and had excellent flavor. The Lobster Tail was the size of a Gulf shrimp which explained the $11.00 charge. I had the marinated Skirt steak that was very flavorful. Additionally, I had a side of a Seafood medley of shrimp, mushrooms and scallops that were mushy and tasteless. Seemed as though the seafood had been frozen and thawed several times. I would not get the Seafood again. The wait staff was friendly and engaging. Overall, we enjoyed the experience and will probably revisit again but would not have high expectations.

    We always love going to Neighbor's Place. There is such a variety of food, tastes great and service is good. This time, the food just did not have the same great flavors or textures. It was labor day weekend and the big game was on, but there were plenty of servers and was not full when we arrived. We will go back, but hope to have improvement of food quality. The server did her job, but seemed to rush us as well. We know this is not our typical experience, so we will be back.

    Whenever we have gone to Neighbors Place, the service has always been excellent and the food very good. I really enjoy their salads, but anything I have ever tasted there has been delicious. The one down side to the restaurant is that it does tend to be quite loud. Just the same, it is one of the best places in Lynchburg to get a good meal with outstanding service.

    The Neighbor's Place is the premier restaurant in the Lynchburg area. Everytime we visit the food is fabulous, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is welcoming. They have a great selection of food and drinks, and the desserts end the meal on a scrumptious. They have something to satisfy everyone's tastebuds.

    Ordered spinach dip and wedge salad for appetizer, salmon and Cajun neighbor for entree and peanut butter pie and cheesecake for dessert. Enjoyed flavor and portions of appetizers. Salmon was over cooked but I think that was due to the thin end cut. Neighbors does not make their own desserts, but they sure are good. Peanut butter pie was rich. Cheesecake was a fraction of the normal serving. Being a regular, I had expected a better portion (even on restaurant week). Service was ok. Still a great place for dining out with family or friends. Note: don't sit near the back door. Regardless of the season, you will not like the outdoor breeze that hits you (I have gotten the cold and the hot air). Ask to be seated elsewhere.

    Had a great meal, try a different menu item each time I go. Had a slight problem with one meal ordered by a friend dining with us, Tilapia not cooked all the way thru, was returned and the meal redone, which was very good. Kitchen and staff had no problem rectifying the problem, and even gave us a choice of any dessert, on the house.

The last couple years, we felt like it just wasn't worth it (paying for a babysitter...driving to get there...paying a lot for a meal). This place was wonderful! Seriously, the steak was the best steak I have have had. Ever. We will definitely go back, hopefully sooner than next year!

    First time there. Made a reservation for 6:30 but then had to change it to 7:00. Got there before 7 and got seated around 7:20. Tried an appetizer sampler with Thai Wings and Skins. Very good. I had the Cajun Neighbor and my wife had the Blackened Chicken Pasta. I now have to try to replicate the Cajun Neighbor at home, it was extremely good. My wife is a little pickier that myself, and tends to not try stuff, but was really pleased with the dish. She commented that it was one of the few times she didn't feel like this type of dish was an alfredo dish with some bits of chicken. This was a chicken dish, with a generous amount of chicken! Good helping sizes. Glad the bread was cut small, or I would have eaten 3 or 4 baskets of it!

    Went there for Mothers Day and had a pretty good experience. Tried to get in after church and the place was just too busy so we settled for dinner there instead. Food was good (not as good as usual) service lacked remembering what we needed. All in all this is my favorite restaurant in Lynchburg. I will blame it on Mothers Day and being too busy. I will def. go back.
