Beautiful restaurant, service started good, but feel short towards the half mark as waiter was working too many tables without backup. We still enjoyed our time and the food was great!

Great atmosphere and tastefully decorated interior. A lot of food options. I wish they also had lattes :) Other than that everything was great.

I felt that the food was overcooked and much of it lacked flavor. Our waitress was overworked with the number of tables which resulted in poor service (empty waiter for lengthy times or having to try and gain her attention). Well intentioned restaurant but outside of the view I was underwhelmed.

Food was great. Outdoor setting looks great. Unfortunately, the server left us for about 30 minutes. Paying at the table electronically is great but when tried to split up the bill we had to track down our server.

I noticed the pandemic has affected the service almost everywhere and this restaurant is not the exception. Food was delicious as always. I always go back for their crab dip.

Stellar restaurant with great service and even better food. The ambience was perfect both indoor and outdoor. The food was so good. Their crab dip is out of this world! And if you love whiskey. Love to drink it, love talking about it, and love learning about it then this is the place to be. A diamond among dirt clods. You rarely stumbled upon treasures like this. I took my wife there for her birthday with our young children and they absolutely loved it.

Food was decent but we made a reservation for 5 people and they sat us at a table with a max of 4 people. We didn’t have enough room for all of our food on the table at once

Very mediocre food. Got brunch and the home fries were not good-tasted like they were drenched in old oil. Everything else was mediocre and kinda bland.

We had high expectations and were disappointed. The food was mediocre. My gumbo was barely warm and bland. The fish tacos were nothing special. My husband got a hamburger and again it was nothing special. Ask for no onions and there were onions. Server was very attentive and friendly.

Our waiter was constantly distracted and confused. One in our party is vegetarian. He asked the waiter if he could get the chicken enchilada without chicken. Waiter replied that he didn't know but would ask. When the meal came, there was chicken in the enchilada. The waiter brought it back and returned a long while later. Everything had been scraped off the tortilla directly onto the plate, the chicken removed, and the same tortilla with bits of chicken on it in a heap on the plate. The quesadilla of another guest was burned. The pork barbacoa tacos were uninspiring.

A couple of us had been to Virtue previously and were excited to return. The visit was a complete disappointment.

Seated in the Clipper Room up on the 2nd floor, so the view was nice and the noise level was tolerable. (Upstairs bar and Sofa Lounge area are MUCH louder.) Food was quite good overall. The one complaint on entrees was that the blackened fish was overdone. Short Ribs were very good.

I like Virtue Feed & Grain and would return but... the menu seems more limited than in the past and I don’t know if this was a different experience because of the pandemic. The food was well prepared and service was perfect. I just wish there were more food choices that were less “fussy”. I truly appreciate that we could bring in our own celebration cake without a cutting fee - bonus for this anniversary.
