Great food!

This restaurant is actually inside the Inn at Virginia Tech. The atmosphere is very "hotel-like." We had a large party and felt the service was great. They have a neat selection of small plates and entrée sized plates, though the menu is not extensive. They have a nice wine list as well. Most... read more

I had the chicken breast and the wife had chicken salad, both were ok but the croutons on the salad were really stall. The grilled shrimp app and bread were the best part of the meal. The place was clean and the staff was friendly.

Had breakfast here on a recent visit to VA Tech. They offered a buffet on Sunday mornings, which was pretty good. All the basics, plus an omelette station. They also had a fairly large fruit bar, which was nice. Service was great, and the dining area is nice and clean.

Good place for work dinners and breakfasts. Not so much for dates, because everyone around you will be having a work dinner and, if you work at VT, you will know half of them. The food is OK, but I always feel that I expect more than what they deliver for the price they charge.

This is the hotel restaurant for the Inn at Virginia Tech. Food is available is available from the buffet or the menu. Weekend brunches are extra-spectacular. Three rooms of buffet tables - one entire room for desserts. Visiting family often like to eat here

The food was not worth the price. Nothing special. Bland. Not worth the price. Wait staff was good. Would not return.

Ate at this restaurant in the hotel for the convenience (was snowing and we were at a track meet all day). Really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and delicious but simple food. The menu was limited but we each found something to enjoy. Will definitely go back when we return!

I just celebrated my birthday at Preston's! We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, the impeccable service from the young VT intern in Hospitality and Tourism and the delicious dinner, especially the Salmon with Lobster sauce!

You can always count on Preston's for a great meal, especially for groups and special occasions. There is a breakfast buffet and a lunch buffet that many rave over. It's too much food for me so I enjoy plated dinners more.
