We had a delicious lunch and excellent service in an atmosphere that was pleasant, albeit a little noisy with the conversations of others.

The Neighbors Place is a favorite dining spot here in Lynchburg for many people. Usually busy at dinner time so you might have a short wait. I recommend using Open Table to make reservations to minimize your wait time.
The menu is broad, something for everyone with basic American fare. I particularly enjoy the Grilled Mahi and the scallops are excellent!
Servings are just right, not too much, but you won't go hungry either.
For family and group get togethers it cannot be beat!

The first few times we went to the Neighbor's Place, we had a great time. The food was New York quality and the taste was amazing. Each time I ordered the Ahi Tuna as it reminded me of being in NY at a world class restaurant. The last few times the Ahi Tuna was over salted and tasted old. This last time I ordered the grilled chicken and it was severely undercooked. As I was within a group, I did not send back to the kitchen. The waitress was either new or poorly trained as she wasn't sure about some of the items on the menu, forgot to bring utensils, and had to ask for extra napkins. Not sure if we'll return. Not worth the money or distance to drive from Roanoke.

Food was excellent! We were there on a Monday night so it was fairly quiet, was a great place to meet and be able to talk while enjoying great food. My steak was delicious and cooked perfectly, my wife’s lobster bisque was heavenly. The after dinner Key Lime pie was awesome.

Went for lunch on Sunday. Seated right in front of open kitchen. Very loud and distracting. Server was nice but not very confident or efficient. Forgot our salad but very apologetic and took it off bill without question. The food was not as good as the reviews indicated which was disappointing. Would not go back as there are many other options available in Lynchburg.

We came early and they were able to seat us right away. The ambience and atmosphere as beautiful. The brick and wood. Very nice. They have a baskets menus and from 4 - 7 $2.00 off. We came for a dinner and after the bar baskets we had salads. Great menus!! Can’t wait to go back and try dinner without baskets. It’s hard not to have the baskets. So much variety. I highly recommend this restaurant. Now that it’s on my radar I’ll be a regular. Food was fantastic. Our server Sidney was pleasant and engaging. She took time to explain items to us. We never felt rushed.

The flank steak was excellent, served with pico was the best ever. Also had mushrooms ( a bit too salty) and the spinach was okay. The shrimp and scallops with pesto was very good.

Our meal was really good. My husband had the Neighbors special creole shrimp and I had the scallops and mushrooms and asparagus on chèese grits. We shared a house spinach salad that was more than enough for the two of us. For dessert we had the Mocha ice cream pie made with coffee ice cream on an oreo crust. The ice cream was at least three inches high and I think they must have given us a quarter of the pie. Our server was pleasant and efficient and we thought the prices were very reasonable for what we got. It was a very busy place and the noise level was pretty high but it was a good evening overall.

The service and food never disappoint. The only complaint I have is that the last few times we've visited there this summer, it has been extremely hot inside. It was so hot this past Saturday, that it felt cooler outside. It was hard to enjoy the meal when you're sweating.

Four elderly cousins came down from Roanoke to spend the day with me and I had been telling them how lucky I am to live close to such a wonderful restaurant. They wanted to see for themselves so I made reservations and asked the hostess to make sure they were not given a check - that I would take care of the bill.

Needless to say, the matter was handled with such grace they didn't even have time to fuss. Jake was my waiter and he was fast, efficient, and professional. He also went the extra mile for one of the ladies who is on a strict no sodium diet.

The food was wonderful! They loved Jake and the neighborhood feel of the place. I'll be back today and so will any visitors I have.

p.s. I moved here from Atlanta last September where there are some of the best restaurants in the world but I think The Neighbor's Place could complete with any of my favorites.

Thanks for a wonderful dining experience!

My wife and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary here. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was clean, but the food was heavily overpriced. My wife enjoyed her salad, but the menu didn't have nearly as many pasta options as the advertising would lead you to believe. I was very disappointed with the small portion size of my meal ($26 for six very small lamb medallions and two meager sides). I don't plan to eat here again.

We had a great dinner cannot say enough about how good the food is there. Our server Joel was excellent she is the best that I have ever had as a server. The grits are awesome so thankful you added that to your menu. Will certainly be back again.
