    It was excellent! Food was delicious and service was great. The only small complaint was it was very loud. Unavoidable in a open room.

    Excellent service and delicious food. I had a bad experience here when they initially opened, but it looks like they have worked out the kinks. Our server, I think his name was Ricky? Was very polite, attentive, and knowledgeable about the food and beverages. It is quite loud inside, but that’s partially due to the nature of the high ceiling in the old building, which is gorgeous by the way. I think someone hard-of-hearing may have a difficult time. Overall, a wonderful place and experience, I can’t wait to go back!

    Seated promptly with reservations. Chad, our waiter arrived immediately to take drink and starter orders. It was very busy, but the drinks and the shrimp tempura arrived quickly. The shrimp were crispy and the sauce was tasty. It was served on a bed of lettuce and purple cabbage. The entree orders were taken and after a reasonable time, arrived, each perfectly cooked. The beef loin was tender, juicy, and the reduction was perfectly balanced. The loaded baked potato was the perfect complement. The ribeyes were done to perfection: one medium and one medium rare. try the fries: balsamic and bleu cheese! The burger was properly cooked and loaded with flavor. Chad was always checking to make certain we had everything needed. Highly recommend.

    For this area, the menu includes innovative items: starter of broccolini atop hummus with brown / wild rice pilaf topped with craisins plus slivered almonds. Oversized spicy chicken sandwich included red cabbage slaw and plenty of mixed baby greens. My server, Rick, was efficient and attentive to this single diner. Food promptly prepared and in generous portions. Glad that the sumptuous cheesecake dessert was available for takeout. Beautiful heirloom dining room but extremely noisy: sound baffles that fit the decor would help a lot.

    I brought my 88-year-old father and sister out to eat. I work in Petersburg and wanted to show them the town. We had wine at the winery, beer at the brewery, and ended our evening with dinner at the Broadgauge. The experience did not disappoint.

    Food and service were outstanding. Ambience is casual but the noise level was high. The menu is limited but all great choices. Prices are a little high for small town dining but I understand they are trying to make it a "destination" place and I believe they will succeed.

    This was our 3rd time there and like the previous times, the service was great…I believe our waitress was Cassie. However, the food…not so great except for the provolone pomodoro and the French almond cake. Half the menu was no longer available (we sat down at 7pm so just a few hours after dinner service began). We ordered the Western salad and pork n mac bites. Western salad…drowned in dressing, minimal cheese and bacon (really only 2 small pieces of bacon) and missing the candied pecans and croutons, but yet they still charged $12 for this sorry excuse for a salad. Pork n mac bites…it wasn’t pork, it was beef with pork seasoning and the batter used for the bites is extremely sweet, needed more of the cheese to balance it. The kitchen really seems to struggle and it could be so much better if they just kept things simple rather than trying to be eclectic with their food. I would also suggest putting some of the sandwiches from the lunch menu onto the dinner menu for other options other than seafood and steak.

    We sat outside so the atmosphere was very nice. We were seated promptly when we arrived and ordered drinks and appetizers. The appetizers showed up and still had no drinks. Two different people besides our waiter commented we needed waters when they brought the appetizer and then bread but never returned with anything. Our server then proceeded to come take our entree order while our appetizer was sitting on the table and we still had no drinks not even water. 25 minutes after sitting down we finally got a glass of water. Our bar drinks had obviously been sitting on the bar for awhile as they were both watered down and the glasses very sweaty with condensation. My steak was served without a steak knife then sat and waited a good ten minutes for a knife as my husband ate his food. The baked potato was cold and undercooked. The whole experience was very sad and underwhelming. For what you charge the management really needs to step up and train your staff accordingly.

    We had a wonderful evening at Broadgauge this weekend. The food was delicious - starters, entrees and dessert - the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and an extra bonus of musical entertainment upstairs was fantastic. All of this in a beautifully restored historic building. Great time!
