Went for late dinner (around 9 pm Sat). Were seated right away.Overall service was excellent and the restaurant seemed relatively clean, even after dinner rush.Typical ambiance on par with the likes of Chili's, TGIF, and Applebee's. Food wasn't bad, but was disappointed with the prime rib.Maybe it was late evening but it tasted like it was in the warmer bit too long.Chicken taco was OK and Cobb salad was decidely average.Portions were generous.The food was competent at best but did not wow me.Overall, 3 1/2 stars ...

Went to the Spring House for the first time and the food was wonderful. Everything our table ordered was very flavorful--loved the beef tips-super tender and the pulled pork barbecue was very moist and had a wonderful smokey flavor. All of the side items were seasoned perfectly. Dessert portions are on the small side but after all the delicious food it was more than enough.

I would give this place six stars for our recent experience if I could. We attended the local graduation services and had a large group of family members (12). The whole town was extremely crowded and we made reservations via Open Table. With traffic & detours we were a few minutes late and called from the car to explain. The staff said, "No problem" and we were seated as soon as we arrived. Our waitress was very attentive and did an excellent job of servicing us during the entire meal. Even though there were people waiting when we left, we were not rushed in any way. We found the menu to be more than adequate and everyone was pleased with what they ordered. The desserts were awesome and we went away happy. We plan to return if we are back in the area.

We've lived in Lynchburg for almost 5 years, and have never been so we decided to finally try it. They had a sandwich board outside advertising two cocktails.When we were seated, there was a table tent with another featured cocktail. An image of the character, Deadpool holding a martini glass in front of a bottle of Aviation gin, with the text "Shaken, no slurred. Ask your server about our Deadpool cocktail!" I was intrigued, so I did. She was clueless beyond that the drink was made with Aviation gin. Great guest service, Megan. I ordered the "Summer Collins" - featured on the outside board. It was not what I expected. Made with coconut water, and lacking anything to cut that sweetness. Not sure who came up with the recipe, it was a disappointment.We ordered the pimento crab dip appetizer, "Red pepper seasoned cheese dip loaded with lump crab & Louisiana hot sauce, served with flat bread & tortilla chips" - Umm. No lumps of crab (we could taste crab, though), NO hot sauce. Not on top, not mixed in that we could taste. The dip was cheesy, but needed that punch of heat. By the time our server came back around to check on us (so we could request hot sauce) we had finished it - we were hungry.We ordered entrees and waited. Our food took FOREVER, though Megan did stop by to continue to tell us that our food would be right out. Really. Coming right out. In a few minutes.When our meals arrived we were satisfied. All the food looked amazing. The portions were BIG for the price. My trout was an entire large fillet, enough for two people, topped with shrimp, scallops, and a lovely crab cake. My daughter's grilled primavera looked lovely and she was happy with it. Hubby got the BBQ mac and cheese. Also a winner. Our food was wonderful. The start of our meal was a bit rocky with the server issues. All three of us took home leftovers. We will likely return.

Bootleggers is popular for a reason! The food is great! But there's almost always a wait. We try to hit it most times we're in Lynchburg, but unless you have the whole evening to spend, you might want to go in the off-hours.Hey friend, thank you so much for being a big Bootleggers supporter! We appreciate your visits and are so glad you enjoy our food. We are looking forward to your return in the future.

Reviewed By Brandis S

I will say of the 4 dishes we had at our table only 1 seemed to be really enjoyed. I ordered filet with shrimp cream sauce (it was more sirloin quality/either over cooked or not a good cut) the sauce and shrimp was good. Husband ordered seafood platter or whatever and crab cakes were mushy, fish was ok, Brussel sprouts were gross-soggy. Friends had sirloin (was ok but dry) but her husbands meal was good. He had the jerk chicken and ate all of his meal and sides. Filet was very disappointing though. Same price as other places and was not the same quality. Artichoke dip and chips were good though- no photos cause kinda disappointing visit. I will still go again and give another try.

Reviewed By Melissa R

This is our go-to eatery when we are in the Lynchburg area. Over the last few years we have sampled many different pizzas and appetizers, occasionally have room for dessert. Recently we tried a sandwich. For the most part all are quite tasty with only one (recent) disappointment (Mac and Cheesy Pizza - too little Mac and Cheese and just not "there" on the flavor scale).We were at Waterstone three times the last two weekends and each time were disappointed in our service - slow and inattentive. Usually there is a line out the door with a wait for a table, not these times, twice we walked in and were seated right away. Is there something going on we don't know about?Thank you for your review, Melissa! We are thrilled to hear that we are a go-to for when you're visiting Lynchburg! We apologize for the inconsistency in your service over the last couple visits, but we appreciate you writing us about the matter. We'd love to speak with you more personally about your last few experiences with us if you could email us at [email protected]

I had a lovely family dinner at this restaurant. My major complaint is with the entrance. My mother is 93 years old and me and my siblings took her for a mother’s day dinner celebration. There are very steep stairs that my mother had a very difficult time going down on entering the restaurant and then even more difficulty leaving. This definitely needs to be admended.Thank you for your review, Deanna! We are glad to hear your meal was wonderful! We apologize if a server or host was unable to answer this question, but we do have an elevator in our facility. You are always more than welcometo go through the Craddock Terry Hotel entrance and take one of their two elevators. One elevator leads you to the patio level, and the other takes you directly into the middle of our restaurant. The hotel always has a Guest Service Representative at the Front Desk who will happily assist you with directions. We hope this helps for future visits!

Reviewed By complainer

I had eaten at the downton location years ago and thought i'd learned my lesson then, but no, I was in the area and hungary so against my better judgement I decided to give this new location a try. I ordered a cheeseburger,fries and ice tea. The burger was served cold. So cold that I could not tell the difference between it and the tomato that was hiding the pitiful small paper thin substance that was being passed off as a hamburger. The fries were OK and served hot. The tea was also OK.Service was lacking in that when my food was served that was the last time I had an interaction with my server. She was to interested in her cell phone. It wasn't that they were busy as there was a scant three people in there at 5:00pm. The floors were filthy with pieces of fries and napkins littered about. These "legend" places are mostly all the same. They hang their pride on the wall with how long the've been in service when they should be involved with improving their lot in the numerous places to eat now in this town. So if you want to say that you have eaten there just to say that you did then enter at your own taste bud risk.
