Click HERE to send us an email regarding your Thanksgiving 2018 reservation. Please make sure we have all the information (full name, your preferred time between 1030 & 7 PM (a range is OK, but be SURE to tell us your PREFERRED single time, also), and your ph #)

If you have made a reservation or reservation request and have NOT received first a confirmation via email and then a deposit bill after that accepting that confirmation, within 24 hours of each step, please call, text or send us a follow up email.  Sometimes it takes a while during high volume times so we do appreciate your patience.  We are catching up as this note is put on our site.

Click here for The Basics file for our regular days and hours.  We now welcome reservations AT ALL TIMES & DAYS for ANY size party, made on the half hour during our open times.   It definitely helps us serve you better & more quickly.   Please ask about Group Rates and easy bill splitting (if needed)—the former can save you $ and the latter WILL save you time.  We love our groups!

Thursday, November 22nd

We’ll be serving our wonderful  Turkey & VIRGINIA Country Ham inspired menu, with a surprise or 2.  Please be sure to make a reservation on the half or full hour from 1030 AM to 7 PM.

Please feel free to send text messages to our main phone number, but please be sure any message you send is clearly acknowledged or answered.  Caution: We have experienced delays in both email and voice mail delivery, and even with texts (very poor Internet service where we are; slow (1.5 mb) Verizon DSL is our only option) recently
PLEASE take note for all visits to TW
–if you have special needs we MUST know those in advance: allergies, high chairs, access for a wheelchair, larger guests unable to use booth seating, etc.
On Holidays, in particular,
we often CANNOT quickly, or at all, fix
these things “day of”; help you & us both by noting them with your reservation request, so that we can discuss any challenges & solve (we hope) in advance

CLICK HERE to send us an email If your questions are not answered on this page (please use the HOLIDAYS email link above for HOLIDAY event inquiries, thank you!)

If you do not receive a prompt response, please call or send a text–no means of contact is 100% error free!  As of Late March 2018, we have experienced some odd slow slow email delivery problems, so we ask that you let us know if you do not receive prompt attention after sending an email.  Text messaging to our main number works even faster!

[Regarding Private Parties & Catering.  Please tell us as much as you can in the email so we can respond helpfully, especially if you are asking about a catering or banquet with unique requirements (most are that way).  The more you tell us, the more we can help and faster.   Email is great for general inquiries, setting up private parties, catering, and big events, especially well in advance.  But!!  Please remember that email is “not the fastest”,  so if time is short, please contact us by phone or, even better,  same number by text: 804-556-3284, since we can get text messages even when there is noise around during times we’re open etc]

Attention, 2018:  updates are in process for a lot of this information, and a new web site is in the works, so please stay in touch.
