We had great service with continual drink refills. The food was hot and the fish and chips were excellent.
Everyone in our party loved the steak and cheese and millionaire burgers.

I love this place. Adorable decor and warm ambiance. Lots of gluten free options, which is essential for me and my family. We are regulars and I wish we could get there more often than we do. Beautiful outdoor seating when it's nice out.

We were just looking for some place open on Jan. 1, and so found this quite by accident. A little challenging to find...its inside a gated community...but well worth the trip. I had a spectacular cauliflower risotto, husband a chicken salad sandwich with walnuts and cranberries. This would be an amazing place at times of the year when you could sit outdoors, but a roaring fireplace is not bad either. We will be back.

Simply a fabulous restaurant ! Living in Stephens City, I've been a frequent patron since Regions 117 opened and I'm grateful to have this gem so close to home. There is nothing else like this restaurant in all of northwestern Virginia. A unique and delicious menu, made fresh as you order, excellent staff, family friendly, comfortable seating, clean as a whistle- cannot say enough about Regions 117. If you haven't tried it yet-what are you waiting for ? You'll love it!

Food and service at Regions 117 was excellent, if a bit pricey. Trying to pay the bill with a gift card we had been given was a hassle. While the restaurant is supposedly open to the public, it is located in a closed, gated 55+ communty and it is not equipped to handle gift cards without manager involvement. Took 30 minutes to get the bill straightened out, ruining what otherwise was a pleasant dining experience.

Our group of four dined on a Friday for lunch. We shared 4 appetizers and had entrees, 2 had dessert. Wonderfully attentive server with excellent suggestions. I recommend the meatball appetizer, was told the crabcakes and burger were amazing and was blown away with the butter cake, omg!!! Great ambiance, food and service!

We were visiting the area and found Regions 117 through an open table search for restaurant serving Sunday Brunch. Finding this restaurant was a bit tricky as it’s located inside a gated retirement community, which should be disclosed in the restaurant’s online description. Once we actually found the building where the restaurant is located , parking was ample. The building overlooks a lake and is beautifully decorated with a large glass fireplace as a focal point and also seems to house an activity center, gift shop and sales information desk for the retirement community itself. The problem is the food which is cafeteria level quality and overpriced. My omelette was paper thin (similar to pre-cooked eggs you might see at a fast food restaurant) and had processed cheese inside. The omelette does not come with any toast or breakfast meat, so if you want those it costs extra. What they listed on the menu as beignets, tasted like re-heated glazed donuts. A “side order” of sausage consists of one small, sausage patty. They also didn’t have any Tabasco sauce when asked. Altogether the food was institutional and overpriced - brunch for two ran us over $80. and neither of us ordered anything from the bar. Regions 117 needs to seriously up their game is they ever hope to build and maintain business from the general public outside of the captive audience they have in this rural senior living community.

love this place and we'll go back but they were not on their A-game this night. The person with us requested the beef medallions without the mushrooms and medium well. They put mushrooms on it which she was okay with but they insisted on redoing it. The rest of the tables meal came out while they were redoing it. When it came out for the second time it was bloody red instead of medium well. It had to be sent back again. At this point the rest of us were almost done. The third time it came, it was better but there were still pieces that were too red for her to eat. She ate what she felt comfortable with and left the rest. They were apologetic and did not charge 4 that portion of the meal. We were there too long because of the multiple issue. Server was great, it certainly wasn't her fault.

I had a drink after dinner that was called a caramel White Russian. There wasn’t much caramel taste to it. As a chef I am looking for that to be featured. Adding a drizzle or something else would had hieghtened the drink and make worth the $10 I spent on it.
