Wegman's Pub is low key, comfortable, priced well, with pub type food. Excellent service. Kind of amazing to have a small friendly restaurant in a grocery store. Kind of terrific.

Went for the Thursday Lobster dinner special - a good value and the lobster was very fresh. I made a reservation, though it appears that wasn't necessary.

Meatloaf & mashed Potatoes tasty- Onions rings could use refinement.

Went with 3 others this week. The hamburgers were wonderful but the Reuben was burned and tasteless. The service was very poor....it was almost as if the waitress kept forgetting we were there. In the past we have had better experiences which is why I would still recommend.

The food was good. The service staff were friendly. We were surprised to find it inside the Wegman's but it's set apart well.

Did not have two sandwiches (one I would have ordered) and it did not have three beers on the menu (which I tried to order, having the wait person come back each time - one for each beer ).

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!

It was different and I would return. It's hard to cook a burger to Medium, any more. I got it well done, which is nowhere close to Medium. So buyer beware!

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.

I came for the lobster dinner. It was a whole lobster. Not sure the size, probably a pound. Tail size was small Probably 3-4 oz at best. Salad was nice , arugula with shaved Parmesan.

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.

The food was great, my meduim rare burger was cooked perfectly (they use 100% irritated beef so it can be cooked however you like it) and the fries were perfectly seasoned. Kathryn was our server and she was beyond accommodating.
