We didn't take food along on our ride, other than crackers and a water bottle, so we were hungry when we finished our ride. This was the perfect place. We sat outside after we placed our order inside. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Food was really good and freshly made. I had a veggie bean burger and my husband... More

I loved my meal at In The Country! I had the biscuits and gravy and the staff was amazing and the customer service was perfect! There is also an ice cream shop attached to the main restaurant. Everything was perfect at In The Country and I would stop by again!

Just got finished having our Christmas party in Damascus with James and Jennifer and staff. The food was the best and attention to service was superior. With about 43 people present, I must say they surpassed every expectation. If your looking for a catered event or dining in with them I must say, you are treated with true southern hospitality....

We stopped here half way through the VA Creeper Trail. It was a good hot meal but a little pricey. I understood the price due to the high traffic area for tourist. Fries are seasoned and crinkle-cut just like I like.

We buy their wraps a couple times a month and they are delicious. We've had chicken salad, turkey, ham and roast beef. They are all wonderful and the staff is friendly and helpful.

My husband and I rode the Virginia Creeper Trail into Demascus and stopped for lunch at In The Country. Their BBQ sandwich and fries were just what I was looking for! We both left full and very happy! We will definitely stop again next time we ride through!

My mom is a regular visitor to this area and brought us newbies here for lunch. Lots of choices even for our potentially picky group. Staff is friendly and helped direct us to the closest , shaded and best part of the Virginia Creeper to hike with kids. It was a perfect recommendation and afterwards we returned for dessert!:)

We stopped here for lunch at the midpoint of our VA Creeper Trail ride. It has a nice variety of sandwiches, fries, chips, and drinks. It also has a neighboring Ice Cream shop that friends of ours enjoyed. It's the most convenient stop off of the trail. The food was well prepared, quickly served and a nice portion after having...

Before heading out for a bike ride down the Virginia Creeper Trail, we stopped for breakfast to "fuel up our bodies". I ordered the breakfast wrap on a sun-dried tomato wrap with just eggs, cheese & mushrooms. Our party of 5 ordered biscuits & gravy, egg white omelet and hash browns and .other similar items. The food was made to... More
