Enjoy dinner before the show.

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.

We went there for lunch before going to a matinee at Barter Theatre. Seems to be a popular place for lunch as many tables were full. In spite of that,the service was good. The food was fine and served in a timely manner, but the menu is rather limited. Generous pour on the wine, thank you. Our one complaint, and... More

Had the pleasure of dining at Rain last week. What a wonderful experience.. The food was fantastic as was the service.. Our group had the seared Ahi and the Fig chicken. Both dishes were amazing. Prepared and served beautifully.. The chicken was probably the best chicken I've had in a restaurant.. The desserts were homemade and so delicious. We ordered... More

We stopped in early (at 4:30) before the kitchen staff was ready to serve dinner, but the staff graciously served us. We relaxed with a drink from the bar and in a few minutes our waiter took our orders. I ordered the salmon and my husband ordered the chicken. Everything was delicious.

We really enjoyed Rain. My wife had some incredible scallops and I had a great jambalaya. The atmosphere was a little bit hip, which was a nice change of pace for us. A highlight of this restaurant is their butternut squash soup. One of the best soups I've ever had.

All food was excellent. Fresh ingredients throughout the whole meal. Everything was homemade and you could definitely taste it.

Seared #1 Ahi Tuna.....I can't believe my taste buds! Every time I come here I can ask what's good and they order for me and I am always surprised. Right off the Virginia creeper trail. Good for any occasion.

The rib eye with blue cheese sauce is to die for. Last time we were there we had a German Chocolate cake for desert which was the best I've ever tasted. Also the bar and bartender were top notch.

We usually have a dinner here while in Abingdon. The food is creative without laying it on too thick, and the preparation is well executed. Service is always solid. Pricy, but so is most everything in Abingdon. At least this restaurant is worth the money.

Rain is a keeper. My husband and I had dinner there on a Friday night around 7:30pm. There was no wait and the front of house staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable, although actual service was a bit slow to get started even though they were not full/slammed. We had the prosciutto with red-eye mayo on baguette and the... More
