Varied luncheon buffet. Tablecloths and cloth napkins. Well attended, but can hear yourself and your friends talk.
Food is not up to par with reviews or food on campus. Very quiet, 1950's large stuffy dining room. This is your grandparents favorite restaurant. Food is good, Service is good. Menu is short and 'classic' Try a restaurant up on main or in Christiansburg.
Our server was attentive and friendly. The rainbow trout appetizer was quite good. Several had a Caesar salad which had a heavy dose of dressing. There were 6 of us and the entrees ( fresh catch, beef and scallops ) were okay, if a little disappointing. The main attraction was the convenience - we had a full and busy day... More
I've had a few very nice dinners at Preston over the past few years ... but my last two or three visits were underwhelming and overpriced for the quality. The Thursday evening before graduation should have been a night of full reservations - we sat in the dining room only about 1/3rd full for 7:30 reservations. I should have suspected... More
Having eaten in Preston's before, the Mother's Day Buffet in the Ballroom was very disappointing. The service and the cold bar were excellent; the "extras" well done (while the guitarist was great, the pianist was abysmal.) However, for price charged ($32 adult and $21!!! for children,) the food was mediocre and the dessert selection was embarrassingly inadequate in selection and... More
My family and I were celebrating a graduation and I made reservations at Preston's months ago - and confirmed three times through phone calls asking different questions about the restaurant. The graduate loves steak and the restaurant's menu offered several kinds. When we arrived, we were not directed towards the restaurant, but towards the inn's banquet room - a huge... More
We were staying at the Inn at Virginia Tech, so Preston's seemed like an easy way to celebrate my husband's birthday. The goat cheese and beef were locally purchased and we could taste the freshness. Not overly formal, yet romantic, it was the perfect venue for us. Great service and good pricing.
Those desiring a less formal atmosphere and lighter fare than what's on offer in Preston's Restaurant will find the lounge a good alternative. Well-stocked bar, knowledgeable bartender. Better than average bar menu: because the restaurant is closed on Sunday evening, the lounge offers (in addition to the usual appetizers, salads and sandwiches) a limited selection of entrees. The night I... More
We chose to dine at Preston's to celebrate Valentines Day this year. Fine dining options are few and far between in Blacksburg and we really didn't want to drive to Roanoke. In addition, since so many people have a 'prix-fixe' menu on VDay, my husband and I were limited since I'm a vegetarian. I was excited to see that Preston's... More
