Wow, if you loved your grandmas food, then this is the place for you. The absolute best is the shrimp salad sandwich, and it on homemade rolls too. Can't miss out on all the homemade food here.

"Grandmas Food" ~~ That is a great compliment. My Gran was a best-ever cook especially blackberry rolls and baked chicken. You are right...the shrimp salad on our freshly baked roll is delish. Thanks, Railroad-Watcher, for your five-star review. We are grateful that you took the time. Suzanne More

This is an interesting place. The setup is unusual requiring some knowledge about ordering and where to order. Once picked up and paid for at another station, there is room to sit and enjoy lunch. It is in a great location across the street from Randolph-Macon College. When my wife and I travel north, we generally end up in this... More

Great sandwiches and sides. A great amount of food and a good value. I eat here two or three times a week. Every sandwich is delicious.

Friendly service, excellent food in all categories. My very favorite place for a lunch in the whole world (at least the one that I know). Soups are to die for and the crab quiche is unequaled for me.

Thank Hank L
Suzanne W, Owner at Homemades by Suzanne, responded to this review

Thank you, Hank, for the great review. The Crab Quiche is the most popular of all six that we offer, and it is the time of year for good soup. Thanks for being such a good customer. I know you love Ashland as much as we do, and love to share it with travelers. Happy New Year, Suzanne More

Lots of great sandwiches, soups, salads and sides to choose from...I live near town and I get meals "to go" before I jump on the train...Never had anything that wasn't delicious.

That was so very nice of you to send in a five-star review. It is great to have our business facing the tracks in the middle of the historic district. I love to take the train to DC to New York, but, as you mentioned, it is a good idea to take your own lunch. Hope everything that we serve... More

Quick service considering how busy they were. Delicious cream of tomato soup, cucumber tomato salad and chocolate layer cake. Also good pastrami sandwich. Just traveling through area but if we lived nearby we'd definitely go back.

4 of us meet there for lunch. Place was crowded. At Suzanne's you stand in line and order what you want and whether it is to eat here or to go.

I have experienced great lunches here at Homemades by Suzanne, however, I live for the desserts. Especially their French Silk Pie! Best French Silk Pie on Planet!

Suzanne W, Owner at Homemades by Suzanne, responded to this review

Thanks, Bruce. So glad you like the chocolate silk pie. Have you tried the chocolate chess pie? My personal favorite. Ask the person who is helping you to top the pie with real whipped cream. There is no charge. Thanks, too, for the five-star review. It helps our business tremendously. Suzanne More
