I have been going to Angelo's for the last 15 years. The service and food has steadily declined in my humble opinion. Some say its because Angelo got a government contract to feed the training center there and lost the vision he had for providing...good food at decent prices for the locals. Whatever the reason, the food and service declined immensely through the years. Now that I have retired, I am seriously considering opening up a new place to show him what he could have achieved if he kept his eyes on his dreams.More

Loved this restaurant. Ordered a Pepperoni, Bacon and Mushrooms and it was delicious. Friendly service and the bar next to it was so cool! Noticed it on the way out and would come back in a future

In the middle of a wine tasting tour in the area, but needed a light lunch. Ordered two side salads, and barely finished them. Nothing small about these. Fresh veggies, and large portions. Friendly staff. Decent prices. Fit the bill for us.

We often choose our fall camping route quite randomly. We knew we wanted to spend some time in the Chesapeake Bay Area for the seafood. Turns out that Westmoreland State Park is on the Virginia Oyster Trail. When we asked around, everyone told us to...head to Angelo’s in Montross. We were sure glad we did. We were introduced to 3 new ways (to us) of enjoying oysters thanks to the advice of our friendly and knowledgeable server. We can’t say enough about how good the steamed, fried and especially the Oysters Oliff were. If you’re in this area, you’ve gotta check out Angelo’s!!More

This is a friendly neighborhood restaurant - owner operated. Not at all sure why anyone would give it a negative review. Have eaten here at least a dozen times, tried most everything, and while some offerings are better than others, all were good! 5 star...service? Nope - but servers hustle to work together and do their job as well as possible. Food presentation isn't fancy, but we're not Vegas and high rollers either! SMALL TOWN PLACE! The Oysters Olive (owner is Brian Olive!) are really excellent! The pizza is better than most I have had in Virginia (I'm a 'pizza snob' having lived in NJ most of my life). No one can go home hungry! The servings are huge! Very popular is the baked spaghetti dishes - could easily feed two people! The steaks are good, not great, but again - we're not in Vegas! It's almost always crowded for dinner - a sign of both the quality and quantity of food and the friendliness of the atmosphere. Nothing fancy, just a great place to go out to get a good meal! Enjoy Angelos and enjoy our small town of Montross!More

Classic little place that is larger than it looks. The menu was the same. Three pages of choices that made us sad we could only try a couple on this visit. The staff were friendly and very efficient. It was nice to see they all...made sure you were getting service. No "NOT my table" vibe in the house. Along with that the small town feel of everyone knew everyone made us feel welcome right away. The seafood selections we saw come out of the kitchen looked great. Since we had plans for seafood the next day, we went with the Italian side of the menu. The Tzatziki appetizer was house made and delicious. Eggplant Parmesan was great and the serving so plentiful we were sad to leave without a take home container full. Some things don't travel well in the car. We live a few hours from Montross and enjoyed our quick visit. Finding Angelo's pretty much made sure we will spend time here again sooner than later.More

The service was good. The food was just ok. We had pizzas and eggplant parmesan. Fried oysters were decent. They serve a lot of frozen food. We expected a lot better considering the reviews.

Angelo's was recommended to us by my daughter who works near there. We were totally surprised by the quality and quantity of the entrees we tried. Blackened scallops were, perhaps, the best I've ever had, large and perfectly seared. The seafood pasta, actually Zuppa de...Pesce, was outstanding. Served in a huge bowl with linguini, clams, scallops and lump crabmeat in a delicious light sauce. My wife had a grilled shrimp platter that was almost more than she could finish, again perfectly prepared. This is an owner operated establishment with a small bar and a large following among the locals. Be aware this is not a fancy, white linen table cover type place but a very good neighborhood eatery. How good was our first visit you ask? Well Saturday night we returned to Angelo's for an encore. Pizza and salads were ordered and greatly enjoyed. Well worth a visit when down in or near Westmoreland County.More

There are a lot of locals that eat here (good sign but a little confronting as an out-of-towner). We ate here 5 out of 7 nights of a week we spent in Montross. We spent quite a bit on seafood dinners and enjoyed every minute...of it. As others have mentioned, the owner is a wonderful person, sociable and a good cook. If he has said hello on one or two nights, he is likely to spend time with others (need to spread yourself around such a popular establishment), so enjoy your time with him. Food portions were large. Steak was fantastic, scallops were fantastic, crab cakes were excellent, etc. We were sad this time that soft-shell crabs were out of season but we definitely did not go hungry. It is a place that has excellent seafood, fairly decent prices and good quality food, sides, salads, etc. We would absolutely recommend Angelo's if you find yourself in Montross for one or more days/nights. It would also be worth travelling for, if you were coming from Richmond or Fredericksburg.More

My wife and I stopped in for dinner on a night we didn't want to cook. It wasn't what I had expected in terms of decor (not much to look at), but I probably expected too much. The food was solid. We started out with...fresh oysters and they were fantastic. The shuck was very clean and the oysters were delicious. We both got the fish special and it was well prepared and flavorful. While we didn't order it, the pizzas looked very good and were a popular order. Perhaps we'll go in that direction next time. You have to check out the bar area - very quirky decorations. Maybe we should have grabbed a seat in there. :DMore

The owner of this establishment is not at all professional. Her hospitality skills are in need of vast improvement. It will be a cold day in hell to possibly return to this crappy restaurant. Rest assured thousands of potential customers will be informed not to...patronize this poorly run establishment. Besides the owner’s lack of hospitality, the food was poorly presented. The wait staff lacked the proper training, and the kitchen staff could be seen openly eating as they prepared meals. Not a good impression presented to dinners seated in the dinning areas. Thanks again for causing a not so very nice dinning experience. One extremely discussed NOT potential longtime customer. Regards and Make it a Great Day!More

Angelos has been around for a long time. Last time we ate here was at least 20 years ago when we owned property in the area. We were passing through Montross recently and this appears to be the only restaurant in town opened on a...Saturday. 20 years ago it was mostly a pizza place. Now they server seafood, too. My grilled chicken salad was delicious and so appreciated the just-grilled chicken. You rarely see that any more. The fried oysters were delicous too. The setting is very casual. But the service was excellent. And the food a great value. I'm giving them an "excellent" for great food and being the one of the few places to eat in Montross.More

Delicious cheesesteak and pizza. Will definitely go back and try more of their menu items. The waitress was attentive and our food arrived quickly. The only complaint I have is that the table could have been cleaner. The napkin box was very dusty and there...were many crumbs between the two tables that were pushed together.More
