When you visit Charlottesville, a trip to Michie Tavern is a must. The food is not that wonderful, but it important to see the tavern if you are in town.

Tavern that will give you a glimpse on how houses were built during the 1800. Since I've been to Williamsburg, Va prior to this visit, I was not so amaze on this place.

Went here because everyone at my office told me it's a must. So my husband and I went there and honestly wasn't impressed. The food was just ok. Nothing to brag about that's for sure. If you are in the area, try it but don't make a special trip to just eat there like we did. Day wasted.

My 9 year old son thoroughly enjoyed the visit to Michie Tavern. We arrived at 11:45 before lunch rush and chose to sit in historic restored indoor dining area. We used an on-line coupon for my son that included a certificate for candy stick in the general store after lunch. My son was excited he could ask the hostess in... More

No trip to Charlottesville is complete without a visit to Michie's Tavern. If you haven't been before, it is buffet style service (around $17 for adults) complete with fried chicken, green beans, stewed tomatoes, cornbread, cole slaw, etc. I don't even like tomatoes, and I love the stewed tomatoes. Everything is done in the period and you feel like you're... More

We were in a hurry for a late lunch and this hit the spot. We visited Monticello after visiting Appomattox. The restaurants on this side of Charlottesville are few and far between. Michie's offered an all you can eat buffet featuring southern home cooking. Adults were $17.95. Children were less. Today they offered fried chicken, grilled chicken, and BBQ and... More

This is an absolute must stop and visit. Food is buffet style. The fried chicken is the BEST I have ever had!!! KFC,Chick-filet, Popeyes can not hold a candle to their chicken, it IS that good. Service is top notch. They visit your table frequently and will bring you all the 2nd helpings you want. This is a 5 plus... More

Juicy, flavorful fried or broiled chicken. Pulled pork. Homestyle sides - read that as heavy with butter. Delicious biscuits and cornbread. Served on period pewter like dinnerware. Friendly period constumec staff will fetch you 2nds, 3rds, refills and dessert. Indoor and Al fresco seating.

Food is good, atmosphere is Great! We ate lunch after visiting Monticello.... It's a perfect fit. There is also gift shop, toy store, and just nice areas to walk around. Great place for young kids. Also can take an inside tour for a few dollars

While I have been here several times, my latest visit with my husband and neighbor was highlighted by the warm reception of the period costumed ladies who welcomed us and served us so kindly. Cafeteria style to start, the server comes by often to see how one is doing and to keep refilling whatever one wants more of...and for us,... More
