Fresh Gourmet food in a refined setting

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.

You can count on good service, well-prepared food, and a nice selection. We have been to their fantastic Thanksgiving buffet, their Christmas family dinners, and with large groups for dinners and banquets. There has never been any negative issue with service, food, or price. I think they know what they are doing.

i had 2 lunches and a breakfast here this weekend. The buffet was very good, and what made it even better was that they had a cooked to order station. Scallops on Friday, and omelets on Saturday morning. Yum! With that, plus salad bar and hot bar, I had no problem finding things I liked. Thank you!

Very good Sunday brunch buffet but the service on our most recent visit was poor - server spent most of his time at the next table but couldn't be bothered to clear plates or refill drinks at others. In fairness, we have never had this problem here before. Although we were there fairly early, the dessert tables were nearly empty... More

Great breakfast buffet. A huge variety; if you can't find something to eat on that buffet, you have a problem. I was pleasantly surprised at the variety. Great atmosphere and great staff. When I stay at The Inn, I will be sure to eat there again.
