I stayed at the hotel and did not fancy driving again. This is the "casual" option in the Boar's Head Inn but it reminded me more of a standard hotel bar or the 19th hole at a good golf course. Food options are innovative and out of the ordinary - but also pricey. Biggest shock was that there are no... More

Th boar's head is about ten minutes from downtown charlottesville, but feels further into the peaceful Virginian countryside. The lunch we had at the bistro was top notch. I had the peanut soup, first time, and it was tasty and filling. The waiter gave us a brief description of the ingredients, too. My husband had the Caesar salad. The dressing... More

For the sake of convenience, we ended here after a long day walking the grounds of Monticello. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the delicious burgers, fries, and salads. Excellent wine menu and amazing flourless chocolate torte. We ended eating here every night of our stay at the Boar's Head Inn.

A friend and I stopped in the Bistro for a light meal following a football game. The room was very busy on a Saturday evening but we were welcomed warmly and shortly shown to a table. The burgers were perfectly cooked and served and we finished our meal in a timely fashion so that our departure from Charlottesville could be... More

We had drinks and apps in the late afternoon hours. The service was not rushed and let us enjoy the time relaxing in the comfy space.

I love it when a restaurant does simple things really well. The burgers were perfectly cooked to order and the fries were like boardwalk fries, only thinner. The crab ball appetizer was nice. Great service. We sat outside with a lakeside view on a perfect September evening.

Stopped at the Boars Head for the night and decided on the bistro 1834, given some of its recent reviews. The food was good, nothing outstanding, but good portions and flavoursome. The clientel resembled more a sports bar, cut of shirts and board shorts? Really? The service was also slow, one server even saying it wasn' this job to get... More
