Thanks to Blake for the rough yet kept together objective review and Joel for the detailed follow up that's what brought us in. It was 30 min. to close so I called ahead to see if the kitchen would still be open and Ricky said he would make sure the cook kept the grill on if I got there within 15 min. which we did and which they did. They were out of our first choice spaghetti but we were warned before ordering so didn't have to change. We had prime rib sandwich which was about the best I've had. Meat was well done when usually better if medium but that's a tough one to pull off in a food service situation. It will be tough to go back to Culver's PR sandwich. 9/10 We had the pork chop which was good not great. Meat was tough and the sauce had an odd flavor I think had something to do with the char of the meat. 7/10 The waffle fries are in a league of their own. I'm confident I just ate the best waffle fries in America and I'm not looking forward to the next time I eat a chick-fil-a because it's just going to be a reminder of what I could be eating. They were more than crispy almost crunchy yet somehow not overcooked with some chew left to the inside. 10/10 best of the best The onion rings were really good. They looked odd compared to what I'm used to (like smooth and oily) but they didn't taste lily and the flavor was unique and awesome. 8/10 Homemade chicken noodle was the soup of the day and was probably the best chicken noodle soup I've had. Utterly simple soup. HUGE pieces of chicken I'm talking 1/2 the size of a chicken nugget but quality meat, large not overlooked noodles and just a couple veggies and simple seasoning so you can taste the chicken. Fantastic. 9/10 Now for the bar: They had dr. McGillicuddy root beer which was great I ordered a double amaretto sour which was made perfectly not too much ice and in a 12-16oz mug I wasn't driving so I followed up with a Lynchburg lemonade which the bartender didn't know but wasn't offended by me handing him my iPhone with the recipe. He made it perfectly and we chatted a bit he was very personable. 9/10 I didn't have the iced tea to see if the recipe has been modified to reduce the bitter from other reviews. The drink prices were better than Happy Hour pricing in a city. Double for $3 and $4.5 for the Lynchburg lemonade. if "chips" is included as part of your order do not substitute. They are fresh made potato chips and on par with the best I've ever had. The only I've had better included a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. These were actually cooked better maybe one "clinker" out of twenty. Fantastic 11/10 One star off for relatively slow (but very friendly and decent service). Waitress was not aggravated by our last minute arrival in fact two tables came in after us Including one that was seated 15min after close. In addition to some flies pestering us which understandably "middle of nowhere" location but who wants to see a fly where they eat. I plan to go back once more on our trip before returning home as the 3 hour one way drive means this will probably be the last time to have those fries and chips. Pay attention to the prices when ordering. For a "country bar" you'll get a bit of sticker shock when the bill arrives. I used the yelp discount to save $10 (20% which eliminated the sting). With the drink prices so low I was surprised by the $50 tab for two people but it wouldn't keep me from returning just be aware of the prices when ordering and do some head math to be prepared.
We've always stopped at The Bog on our way up north every Labor Day weekend and I've always loved this this place. I was super sad they got rid of their pizza menu because it was great. He said it just took too long to make for their kitchen which I get - but I was still heartbroken! My husband and I split the bog burger (Ricky warned us it would take awhile). The menu says is a triple decker yet it came out as 2 half pound patties. The menu also says he burgers come with homemade potato chips and it came out with fries. Odd! He asked how we wanted it done and we said medium to medium rare and it was well done. It was still fine, but I wouldn't write home about it being great or anything.... We had the cheese curds (they're OK- I've had way better and way worse) and the salad bar. Ricky the bartender is super friendly - beer is cheap. I'm just not as in love with The Bog as I used to be. It's a nice atmosphere and a convenient location off the interstate with friendly service when there isn't much else in the area.
Loved this place! After a terrible experience at a near by restaurant Thursday evening while we wee passing through heading up north, someone recommended we try this place next! The cheese curds were perfectly amazing. My boyfriend got the perch special, he asked for an extra piece and it only cost $3extra. The pieces were HUGE! He wasn't able to finish it all which is unusual for him. Only complaint is that the fish was pretty boney. I had a burger that was cooked perfectly MR as I asked for it. The waffle fries and coleslaw were great, too! Loved our server--she was very friendly and attentive. Will be back next time we drive through:)
