The drink list & menu celebrate local producers and farmers; there is a very cool bar, and the atmosphere is all wood- you feel as if you are dining in an old barn that has been refurbished as a casual-elegant restaurant. If you're a New Yorker, this is as Brooklyn as it gets. The food is tasty and good- nothing... More

We had the best time at Brookville. It was date night for the hubby & I. Between the best burger, bacon popcorn, grilled asparagus, plus chicken & waffles, from local sustainable farms, I'm not sure how it could have been better. That just baked bacon cookie at the end was the perfect finish to a wonderful meal. We cannot wait... More

Had the opportunity to dine here while down in Charlottesville for work. I went for the chicken and waffles, and it was a superlative take on a Southern classic. The bacon waffles were perfectly done and the kimchi topping provided a nice kick. The chicken was similarly well done. I wasn't able to sample the other items on the menu... More

Sunday evening post UVA graduation and the prix fixe menu was the norm on the Downtown Mall. We reserved our spot for 12 diners a few months ago, and for a price of $50.00 per person we had expectations of a great meal, and this was a very special occasion for all of us. We had 3 families together. We... More

We went to Brookville for brunch after hearing rave reviews from various friends. Most of us were seduced by the "BFP" or "Big Fluffy Pancake," a single baked pancake the size of a dinner plate and about two inches thick. If you like, they can cook three strips of bacon right into it. The things were delicious, but ridiculously large.... More

A great little place above the Whiskey Jar restaurant. The staff was very friendly, and even though we got there just as they were getting ready to close we didn't feel rushed . The food was excellent, fresh and of extremely good quality. Its a nice place with good atmosphere. From the bacon popcorn, to the drinks, to the Carnitas... More

Good news is the food we did get was good.... Really tasty ! Bad news, at this supposedly fancy high end downtown spot - out of only 5 main entrees on their limited dinner menu the restaurant had run out of 2 of them! The three remaining really were only 2 choices.... Vegetarian or chicken (since two of the remaining... More

Located on the west end of the mall in a small upstairs space previously occupied by several other restaurants. It is located over a bar and I was afraid that external noise could be a problem but it wasn't. The interior got to be extremely noisy when it filled up. The building is old and the floor and table shook... More

I guess I didn't take the other reviews as seriously as I should have - when we saw that pork was the theme. Just a bit over the top for our liking. My husband got the pork belly - and that was exactly what it was. 2 inches of fat/pork belly. Being somewhat health conscious folks - he didn't eat... More

We were in Charlottesville for a few days and had a wonderful experience at Brookville Restaurant. The restaurant is located on the pedestrian mall and is nestled on the second floor. The atmosphere inviting, casual with an elegant feel. We were excited to taste their local and changing menu and it was outstanding! My husband and I shared the porkbelly... More
