Perfect end to a great day.

My wife and I finished the Virginia Creeper 34 mile ride, took a short shower at the hotel, and headed downtown to look around. We ended up at Rain for dinner and had a fine experience there. The restaurant is nicely appointed, clean, and cheerful. We were seated immediately; it was early and we... read more

I had to give it only 4 stars because of the level of noise, it's hard to hold a conversation with the husband. I personally don't like that level of noise if I'm paying that much money for an experience, service, and food. I know that sounds picky but really. The 6oz filet is $29, so yeah that's a lot...

We dined here based on previous reviews. Excellent service and the flourless chocolate desert is a "killer"! Less consistent were the entrées. My wife's Stuffed Chicken Breast was exceptional however I ordered the scallop special and was disappointed. There were only four scallops but they were cooked just right. Unfortunately they were on a bed of fried polenta that was... More

We had an excellent dinner here--Atlantic Salmon in a pineapple sauce and ribeye cutlets that were out of this world. Plus the ambiance is incredible!

My husband and I had dinner at Rain last night for my birthday. The service was excellent and the food outstanding. I had gotten my heart set on an entree that was no longer on the menu, but made a choice off the evening's specials that far surpassed anything I have ever had. Chef Ben is incredibly talented--and the Seared... More

We go to Rain whenever we can. We have never had a disappointing meal. They have a first-class bar, good service and excellent food. It is not the best known restaurant in Abingdon but we feel it far surpasses that which is.

While driving through Abingdon, due to an interstate traffic jam, stumbled on this gem of a restaurant. Very creative lunch menu of salads and sandwiches. Service was superb and food quality was exceptional.

We ate t Rain based on the recommendation of friends. The food was good - I would recommend going with what sounds good to you from the menu and you will not be disappointed. The beef selections are good, chicken dishes are both excellent.Service was a little slow and not as attentive as we would have liked, they were busy.... More

Were there on very busy night. Service was prompt and personal. Food was perfectly delicious and well presented. Housed on wonderful old building. Not too pricey for what it was.
