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.

I really like this place-they're friendly, accommodating and the food is good. I have found that it's inconsistent during high traffic times, for example the meat has been unevenly done at Friday dinner more than once. Still, I think it's a good value if you want to go out for a nice dinner with your family.

The quality of the food was excellent and it was prepared to perfection. The service was amazing with the waitstaff being very attentive.
A couple of downsides for me, but certainly not a reason to avoid this restaurant, it seems like a cafeteria instead of a fine dining experience, it is very noisy, the waitstaff are not well knowledgeable about certain items on the menu.

My husband and I had dinner and the food was fabulous. We absolutely loved it and have already told a lot of others about our experience. Not only would we recommend it but we can't wait to go back and visit. We have lived in the area for 15 yrs and someone told us about the restaurant so we tried it. So beautiful!

Everytime we visit, the food and service is outstanding! They really do work to stay consistent with quality and care very much about your dining experience. In addition, sitting on the large porch swings after dinner (overlooking the pond) is just an added addition to the superb ambiance! We ended up having a glass of wine and sitting on the porch swings until after dark! They've got a good thing going!

I do not care for the open atmosphere, the noise and lack of a little bit privacy for our occasion. However, the Center Cut Fillet meal was FANTASTIC!
It seems to appeal to the "want to be seen" type of people.

Our server, Katy, was excellent. She was very attentive to our dietary needs. There were limited gluten free options or I would have given 5 stars. The crab cakes were amazing! And the creme brûlée melted in my mouth. We will definitely visit again. Also, there wasn’t a sign on the restaurant. There was a tiny sign on the road which we missed the first time we drove by. Better marking of the restaurant would be helpful!

Shawn, thank you for feedback and we do apologize about the inconveniences. We are working with the local governing agencies about signage and is a goal of ours to have that be more clear for our guests. If in the future there are any questions about gluten-free options, the managers, like myself would be more than happy to help you with a selection. Thank you for the review and we do hope to see you again soon!

Noise level allows for easy conversation. An outside table on the veranda provides a beautiful view of the lake and landscaping. Region’s 117 provides a gourmet menu in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

First of all the setting is beautiful. The restaurant sits on a lake, you can sit indoors or outdoors. The building is all wood beams with high ceilings. The service is amazing. Now the food. I’ve been here twice and my meals were delicious. Their crab cake is amazingly all crab chunks, delicious. Yesterday I had the short rib tacos with a spicy chimichurri sauce. Wow! They always have $5 glass of wine, a Zinfandel or Pinot Grigio. I recommend their cocktail called the Hound Dog with Bourbon and Ginger Beer. A must visit!

The food was delicious! The wait staff was wonderful. We sat outside on a beautiful night and enjoyed the view. The only thing that didn’t thrill me was that our table was near the door to the inside part of the restaurant and there was an a/c or some kind of fan right above the door that was very loud and made it difficult to engage in conversation. If we had been seated far from that door, it would’ve been a perfect night.

Hi Joan! Thank you for taking the time us a review. We completely understand how the noise form the door can be bothersome, We've had to turn it up in recent months as it serves to keep insects out of the restaurant. We do apologize about that, please let us know next time you visit and we'll be happy to seat you elsewhere. Again, thank you for the review and we look forward to your next visit.

Our party was seated right away and the waiter took our drink orders. With a few minutes our drinks were received and we put in an appetizer order which was brought out in another few minutes. The brunch order was made and in about 20 minutes we received our meals. Staff was very nice and checked on us once in a while, but not too much. Over all it was a very nice and relaxing meal overlooking the lake.
