A welcome stop coming from Monticello, we had noticed Michie's going up to Monticello and we were all hungry after our Monticello tour. We are not really buffet people but decided to give it a try and very glad we did. The fried chicken was great and liked the hospitality of a colonial dressed wait person coming through the dining...

The tavern is a lovely visit after touring nearby Monticello. It is very atmospheric. The food was just fine. Especially tasty were the beats and fried chicken. Service was also pleasant if not effusively welcoming. Prepare for a long wait in leaving, however, because the cashiers at the exit were indescribably sluggish. Overall a very nice Choice for dining.

We stopped by Michie Tavern on our way out from visiting Monticello, as most people do. The Tavern building, its location, and the atmosphere were wonderful. The workers were also nice with smiles and nice welcomes. The food, though, was only alright. Fried chicken, mashed potatoes (not very creamy), veggies (soggy, not fresh) and drink were all average. The menu... More

It seems there are many mixed reviews of the Tavern. I gave it two stars instead of one because the servers and other staff were very courteous, helpful, and personable. Otherwise, I would have given it just one. We got there at around 11:00, and wandered through the shops. With the exception of some genuine antiques on the second floor... More

Great fried chicken! Easy cateria style service. The server was not very courteous. Seemed like she was having a bad day. Very close to Monticello and Ash Lawn- Highland. Definitely recommend for lunch.

Enjoyed the tavern, the food was excellent but the price is a bit to much for a Fried Chicken buffet. We did enjoy a bottle of wine with the meal and the staff were very attentive.

The all you can eat! buffet is a must do! Food is delicious! Make sure you try the stewed tomatoes! You will leave stuffed! Take the tour when you're there as well. Several nice gift shops as well.
