Region’s 117 redefines food you love. With regionally-inspired dishes, Region’s 117’s twist on American comfort food is made fresh and flavorful in an atmosphere unlike any other in the Shenandoah Valley.

Executive Chef Brian Whitson uses locally-sourced ingredients, most from with 117 miles of the restaurant, to craft a menu that has something for everyone, from extra lumpy crab cakes to wood-fired pizza and more.

Regions 117 is truly a treasure, as it is the only venue for lakeside dining in the Valley, located just behind the gates at the dynamic Shenandoah Lodge. We welcome all who enjoy delicious food paired with an uninterrupted view of the 117-acre Lake Frederick from inside, or out on our expansive Veranda.

Note** Our patio seating is first come, first serve based on weather and availability. We do not take reservations for outside seating, however, we offer the opportunity to sit on the veranda at the host stand based on occupancy to each guest upon arrival.

Food was great, everyone was polite, nice ambiance and clean. Love the fact that there is an open kitchen/dining and you can see that the cooks take their jobs seriously as well 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

This is the first time the food was less than excellent. Pot roast was too salty and the Wayguy burger was not cooked as requested - it was no where near medium well. Otherwise it was a great evening as expected.

Unfortunately Regions is not what it used to be. We approached the check in desk staffed by two hostess’ neither one acknowledged our presence until I said “ Excuse me”. MI gave my name and since I was early I asked if I could order a cocktail. I was told I would have to go to the bar and place the order myself, there was no table service in the lounge. I ordered from the bar and an excellent cocktail was delivered to my table by the bartender.
When our party was complete we again approached the hostess, the table we were given (we had made a reservation) was probably the worst one in the house. There were several other tables available but they had not been cleared from the previous patrons. We asked if we could have one of the better tables and were willing to wait. Unfortunately the hostess must have forgotten about us, I noticed the table had been cleared and reset but the hostess didn’t seat us until about 15 minutes later, after I enquired if our table was ready.
Once we were seated our server was excellent and knowledgeable about the menu. The problem is in the kitchen. We placed an order for the Brussels sprout appetizer with bacon. The appetizer came quickly and the dish was excellent, Brussels sprouts were grilled and carmelized to perfection and served with thick bacon slices. The problem was the lag time between appetizer and main meal, at least 30 minutes and I noticed several other tables were waiting at least that long for their dinners!
Our mains were pedestrian, both seemed to suffer from “sogginess”! The eggplant Parmesan and “fried chicken” were soggy not crispy. While the portions were generous, the eggplant Parmesan was lacking in taste and texture. I couldn’t taste the “fire roasted”
tomatoe and the eggplant was soggy not crispy. The chicken resembled
A “chicken fried steak”, again lacking in taste and also soggy? We decided not to order dessert.

Susan, we are that your experience wasn't how it should've been when visiting Regions recently. We take value in your reviews and I would like to inform you that I have heard you & am addressing your points with the staff. In planning for the evenings business we generally pre-assign tables based on reservations and I believe that is where the delay must've been on our part. Again I apologize and I will send my information privately, please reach out to me. Thank you Susan.

Surprised at the loveliness of the establishment. The Brussels Sprouts were amazing! Nick was an excellent server and was very thorough with some of our food allergies/aversions. It was a wonderful lunch and only wish I had been able to try more. Will be back for sure.

I was about to call with these comments. We are one month into residency at trilogy. I had the vegetable stir- fry. Meager portion, I It seemed you used minute rice. Minute Rice? I haven’t used or tasted hat wonderbread of grains since the 60’s. And then it was clearly jarred teriyaki sauce, sort-of dumped on top. Way too much, overpowering any flavor the few pea pods and half a baby boc choy could add to a plethora of squash. With little more effort something yummy could have been presented. Stir fry with fresh garlic and ginger, add a dash of soy sauce, perhaps some Asian chili sauce. Please use jasmine rice, oriental restaurants keep it for hours so can any restaurant which offers rice. Our daughter ordered a chicken Caesar and found it ho- hum. Hubby had millionaire burgers, loved It. in all a poor eating experience.

The dining room is open to both the lobby and the bar, making the environment quite noisy. The food is mediocre. The crab cakes use a recipe unlike any other ever experienced by this reviewer. They were chock full of unnecessary ingredients not normally found in crab cakes in the Mid-Atlantic region. From time of order to delivery of food was excessive. Region's 117 needs a lot of work to come up to the standard of a reliable provider of good food.

Both had special surf and turf. Meatball appetizer was pretty good but could use more cheese. Salads are some of the best around. Rockfish and filet were both good and vegetables too. Sat right in front of kitchen but that’s where the 2 tops are and that means noise. Craft beers excellent. Will return.

Service was extremely slow, though waitress was cordial and apologetic for the wait. I’d hoped for a nice relaxing evening but by the time our food arrived we had to hurry to finish and took the dessert to go in order to get home in time to pickup kids. I’d recommend going when you have 3 hours for dinner.

Despite our reservation, we had to wait ten minutes to be seated. We also had to wait an extraordinary long time for our food. We ordered shredded Brussel sprouts for appetizer. After thirty minutes we were told that they were out of the Brussel sprouts. An hour after we arrived we got our entrées. Our server did his best to help us with the wait by checking with us frequently. At the end of our meal the manger came to our table to address the problems and offer his apologies. The kitchen was overwhelmed. They were serving a 250 plated dinner while also trying to serve the restaurant on a busy Friday night. The manager substantially discounted our bill and gave us dessert. Without the planning/staffing snafu this would have been a very good dining experience.
