The folks at Trackside Grill were so accommodating to us as we booked a reservation at the last minute on a Friday early evening. I was so grateful!! The service was excellent and the food was hot and delicious.

Looking for a non-fast food break off I-95. Less than 5 minutes to the charming little town. Railroad tracks out front. Converted town movie house. Good food, Amber was a great waitress, enjoyed my turkey Ruben. We will stop again.

We visited Trackside Grill on a busy Friday evening. We were seated after a brief wait. I had a club sandwich and onion rings. The sandwich was a generous size, but would have been tastier if the meat had been sliced thinner. The onion rings were wonderful. They didn't just crumble when I bit into them and the flavor was...

My family ate here on a Saturday morning before attending a football game at Randolph Macon. We parked at the school and walked down to the restaurant which was a very nice and easy walk. The restaurant opened at 11 which is when we arrived and they were definitely ready for customers. The food was tasty and the waitress was... More

We frequently dine at in this great restaurant, as we can always count on good food, and excellent service. Tonite was no exception. We arrived around 6: 00 PM. and there was no wait for seating. We were greeted by one of the regular staff, and got a chance to glance at the menu. Our order was promptly taken, by... More

Read the reviews, glad I did! Would have probably gone to Cracker Barrel otherwise. Located in the historic area, the Trackside is a charming cafe, easy to find off of Rt95. The chicken salad sandwich was full of tasty chicken on delicious bread. The BarBQ pork sandwich was a good size and very flavorful. Both came with a choice of... More

Pass by the chains and head into the historic district for this cute cafe like restaurant in an old movie house. Food and service were both great. I agree with reviews of the French Dip- beef was melt in your mouth, and very tasty. It is a big sandwich, so you will likely not put a dent in your side.... More
