Dining Opportunities

At first glance, the area restaurant landscape looks barren. Nothing could be farther from the truth…you just need to know where to look. Granted, you might have to drive a bit depending on what you crave. There is no “restaurant row” at Lake Anna.
Many want to know where to get something to eat when traveling BY BOAT. The overwhelming vote belongs to Lakeview Restaurant, located at Hunter’s Landing on Lake Anna. John and Linda know what they are doing. Lakeview is overlooking the lake but don’t go on Monday or Tuesday because everybody needs a day or two off. Lakeview’s menu covers the spectrum from burgers to prime rib to Italian. The prime rib is a favorite and served every Saturday night. Nightly specials are also offered.

Dining out on Customer Appreciation Night at Chelsea Joe's is a tradition around the lake. Half the challenge of this activity is actually finding a table these days. Joe and Lester have created an institution with their half price burger on Wednesday nights. See all your friends and neighbors and meet many more. You can eat inside or out if the weather is nice. Linger into the evening and join the crowd at the bar for a cool one. Chelsea Jo’s is on Route 208 across from Sturgeon Creek Marina.
The Tavern On The Rail is a must-do for those of you that desire an elegant, yet relaxed dinner out. We can't blame you for missing those posh restaurants of the city. Try Tavern on the Rail for the sumptuous food with a rustic, refined atmosphere. Melody and Kenny offer weekly seafood specials, special cut steaks, and their famous Train Wreck dessert. The Frederick’s Hall casserole is a “can’t miss” mainstay of the menu. Tavern On The Rail is located on Rte. 618 approximately 5 miles out of Mineral.
If you enjoy a nice drive in the country there are two delightful dining opportunities in Culpeper, about 35 minutes from mid Lake Anna. Located just down the street from each other are: The Hazel River Inn and It’s About Time. Follow Rt. 522 North into Culpeper and turn right onto Davis Street. They are both well worth the drive.
Another off-the-water activity Lakers enjoy is a visit to downtown Fredericksburg for some of Carl's famous ice cream. This is no ordinary ice cream. The 30-minute drive is worth every mile to sample some of this 50-year old fixture's products. Located on Princess Anne Street, not far from Route 1, Carl's serves three flavors of frozen custard, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. What makes it so good? A 1940-era Electro-Freeze ice cream machine and fresh ingredients. Carl's is open from mid-February to mid-November.
Fredericksburg sports the full gamut of chain restaurants, but many of the local favorites are not widely known outside the area. The downtown area has a wonderful assortment of small café’s and restaurants. Olde Town Steak and Seafood, located at 1612 Caroline Street, has been an area favorite for years. Olde Town was voted “Simply the Best” Seafood and Upscale Restaurant, by a Free Lance Star annual readers poll.
