We had a wonderful experience at The Pub. I had recently returned from the Bahamas. My dinner at The Pub was better than any meal I had on my trip. And I made a new friend. We’ll be back!

We visited for the first time during restaurant week... the food was fresh and tasted great. The service was very good as well. We definitely plan to come back, and we plan to try lunch, too.

We had an above average dinner at The Pub. Our party of four tried healthy options as well as traditional comfort foods. Everything was prepared as ordered and tasted quite good. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. We wished that we had ordered an appetizer as there was a bit of a wait for our entrees since it was a busy Friday night.

This is a great option for casual dining, especially at happy hour time. Discounted drinks and half priced appetizers. Nice to have a meal before or after doing grocery shopping. I had a spinach/arugula salad with salmon. My salmon was over cooked so a bit tough. My husband’s turkey burger was very tasty as were the French fries. I would recommend this for casual dining.

Thought we’d try the Oyster Week specials. The oyster stew was quite good, but the fried oysters were over cooked. One person in our party had the salmon from the regular menu, and she said it was excellent.
The service was excellent.

We have been here often. My favorite casual dinner is fish tacos, but after ordering twice previously and not enjoyed, we switched to a fish fry. Much better decision and back to an acceptable portion.
Jack, our waiter, as always was spot on! Attentive, but not hovering.

This is n excellent family restaurant and since I shop at Wegmans a convenient restaurant for lunch or dinner when we’re at the store.

When the Charlottesville store opened the food and service were outstanding. Our last three visits we have been disappointed with the food. I explained our disappointment to our excellent waitress, Emma, who in turn spoke to the cook. This time my tacos were not dry, but they were too spicy. ( & I love spice).

The wait staff have all been attentive, but very busy. Our entrees sat on the counter for a good 5 minutes until the hostess stepped in to served us.

We hope to see improvement, but won’t be ordering fish tacos again..

The server was amazing she was the best ever!! The pretzels for an appetizer were great the cheese dip was perfect. The main course food lacked flavor, my wife said her mussels were bland and the cuts of meat for my Rueben was very gristly. The young lady waiting on us deserved 7 stars!!

This is NOT eating in a grocery store; it is a true restaurant with cushioned seating, wall decor, even live music the night we there. The wine value is superb, $3-$5 per glass less than other restaurants in town. Our waitress was professional and had been there since it opened.

I had a margarita, a small glass with more ice cubes than the too sweet margarita. My fish tacos also not very good. I’ve had the tacos before & they were acceptable, maybe the cooks night off? My husband’s fish & chips was half the size of previous visits. We love Wegmans & hope this was just an off night in the kitchen. The server & the manager who took our order were great!

I should start by saying I love Wegmans, but this was not Wegmans at its best.

Our waitress, Kat was as attentive as always, even though it was a very busy evening.

The hamburger/ beer special was still being offered, but the hamburgers are much smaller. Stop the special promotion if the quality is not the same.

The fish & chips, also a smaller portion, but didn’t seem so until we cut into the fish...the batter so thick it must have increased the size by a third. Very disappointed with our meals!

I hope this pub doesn’t destroy the quality of the WEGMANS reputation I have known for so many years!

the appetizer and Happy Hour beer were great. the Cheeseburger was small and lackluster. The waitress seemed over worked and was not attentive as our food sat on the ready counter for several minutes before it was delivered thus the burger bun was soggy.

Generous portions, excellent service on most days! Very accommodating with substitutes. Fresh produce, well prepared. Just needs a little more zing with the flavors, they tend to be bland.

we have been coming there for Sunday Brunch several times since their opening for Sunday Brunch- overall liked everything pretty much for this prices, however this time the creme brulee was a bad choice on my part and the Salad was soaked in the dressing- next time dressing on the sidewe'll give another try.

We noticed an oyster special event sign at the store and decided to go. I ordered the po boy and was quite disappointed. The oysters were rubbery, dry and not very flavorful. The oyster stew was very flavorful but did not have more than a bit of oyster in it. Thankfully the waitress was quite attentive and kept us well taken care of. We probably will not eat here more than rarely in the future. This was our third visit. My wife's beef sandwich was quite good so at least that was a plus. Not sure what the issue is there since they have access to a very good supply of ingredients for all their fare.

A couple of months ago, I enjoyed an outstanding wine and cheese dinner at the Pub, to which I would give a uniform five stars. Thus, I had high expectations of a delicious pre-dinner taste of oysters and draft Guiness Stout, during a weeklong oyster promotion. The Guiness was fabulous. However, the oysters were dry, obviously having been shucked some time before my 6:30 seating. Also, there was no choice of oyster varieties -- a treat I regularly enjoy down the road at Shadwell's Restaurant. In addition, the variety available was extremely salty, not truly enjoyable. I asked for crackers to accompany the bivalves, and the waitress brought me a cellophane pack of oyster crackers; I had thought the Pub might have house-made cracker -- they can be found in the grocery aisles. Also, diners at the table next to me requested a bread basket which came with butter; they requested olive oil, and were told the house was out of olive oil (also available in the grocery aisles)! So, these two declined the bread basket. Overall, my experience causes me to distrust the quality of the Pub, which is a great disappointment, because I was hoping the Pub would prove to be a terrific neighborhood eatery.

We're so happy to have Wegmans Pub(&Wegman's grocery) here in C'ville.
We had their Greek turkey burgers, a current special with a choice of any beer. Absolutely cooked to perfection.

We'll return!
