Ate lunch here. Best grilled chicken sandwich! Very moist, terrific bun. Excellent pulled pork nachos with feta, avacado. The chips themselves tasted homemade and were thin and crispy and delicious. Would definetely eat here again.

We stopped by after listening to some music and wanted a light dinner. We both got the arugula salad and butternut squash soup. Now y'all know salads are "up for grabs" at some places, it shouldn't be hard, but it often is. Not at Rain, the greens were perfect and cold, dried cherries and a great vinaigrette, but the soup!...

What a pleasant surprise to come across Rain when we stayed in Abington, Virginia. The service was relaxed and informed. There were some great craft beers on tap and the food was complex and well-presented. Highlights included the arugula salad and the duck mousse toasts. Situated close to the interstate, it really is worth getting off the highway and taking... More

We popped in for a light lunch while exploring Abingdon and were not disappointed in our choice. I had a delicious chicken salad croissant that came with fries. There was a good beer and wine selection and the interior was nicely appointed with restaurant on one side and bar on the other. Good spot for lunch (and the dinner menu... More

A previous reviewer got bent out of shape because, in his estimation, Rain foolishly aspired to big city status. We're from Philly, which now has a thriving restaurant scene. We often go to New York and eat there. Have to say Rain could more than hold its own in those cities. I ordered the tuna extra rare and it came... More

As out-of-towners, my wife and I have eaten at Rain twice in the last two years. We went back the second time because we were so impressed by their ribeye on our first visit. We were tempted by other items but just had to try the ribeye again to see if it really was as good as we remembered. IT... More

I am local the Abingdon area, and I had been to Rain twice in the past two years. This is more a commentary about my busy schedule than about my interest in eating there, and lately I visited twice in the last few weeks. On both occasions I chose to order menu items out of the ordinary -- things not... More

Despite some negative TA reviews, we opted for Rain and were pleased with our choice. The salads were excellent. We liked the basil arugula dressing, very fresh taste and best among the options. There were some problems with the temperatures with our food - squash soup was delicious but just barely warm. My escolar special was delicious but the so-called... More

Having a night out with my wife, when we decided to try Rain Restaurant in Abingdon. I ordered the Shrimp and Grits and my wife had the Stuffed Chicken Breast. Both entrees were delicious. We look forward to returning to the restaurant in warmer weather to sit on the patio and have a few drinks.
