Chateau Morrisette offers fine dining in a casual setting. Located along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Floyd County, Virginia, Chateau Morrisette sits at 3500 feet with spectacular views of the valley below. Chef Sterling Steffens creates authentic southern haute cuisine designed to pair with the wide assortment of wines produced in our cellar. Guest favorites include Our Dog Blue paired with Shrimp and Grits, Fried Green Tomatoes paired with Muscadine, Duck and Dumplings paired with Chardonnay, and our Chateau Filet paired with our Chambourcin Reserve. Vegetarians enjoy a variety of dishes as well. With two estate gardens, Chateau Morrisette provides seasonal offerings to insure quality and freshness. Guest may dine by the fire in the colder months or outside on our terrace in the warmer months. And of course, a visit to Chateau Morrisette is not complete without a stop in our Tasting Room for a sampling of our wines and a little shopping for uniques gifts and accessories.

We attend the Sunday Brunch on Father's Day and were very disappointed. We have eaten here in the past and it has been very good. We had a reservation for mid afternoon and the food on the buffet line was either cold or dried out. Some of the dishes were even empty. It was a long distance to travel and... More

I'm very sorry you were disappointed in our brunch. We always try to refresh the buffet every hour. However, please know that we no longer offer the All-You-Can-Eat brunch. The Father's Day brunch was the last one for the year. Instead, we now offer our regular menu along with several brunch additions to the Sunday menu. These are a la... More

We visited the winery and restaurant on June 26th, 2015. We have been to the restaurant on several different occasions and have been satisfied with both service and food. But our recent visit was not so pleasant. We requested outdoor seating but we're told the patio would not be opened due to the chance of storms that day. So we... More

I'm very sorry you were disappointed with your overall experience during this visit. We keep a close eye on the weather because storms come up very quickly here on the mountain. I can understand your frustration when the decision to open the terrace is made only minutes after you were told that it was closed. I do apologize and wish... More

Thank you for the very nice review of our restaurant. We always recommend having a wine tasting before the meal so that you can make the best choice for pairing our wine with your preferred menu selection. You made the right call. I'm sure you enjoyed your stay at Bella La Vita, it's a beautiful property. Come and see us... More

Went to have dinner today. The weather was fantastic and the food was just as good. The buffet dinner had many choices from fish, chicken, ham, prime rib, potatoes, carrots, eggs to order, pancakes, fresh fruit and much, much more. In addition to the restaurant, we did wine tastings over at the winery. I liked the wine so much, I... More

Since we were too late to reserve a table for the Father's Day buffet, we traveled the 2+ hours on the Saturday before. We have been driving to the winery and restaurant for many years, and this year's visit was not a disappointment. The shrimp and grits were prepared perfectly. Shrimp in the mountains??? Yes! Seared to perfection. AND the... More

We live near Chateau Morrisette and usually eat there several times a year....usually as a celebratory meal. Up until this particular visit we would have given it 5 stars! The food, as always, was excellent but......no bread was served to us...something you always get before your meal....I ordered a glass of Blackberry/Frosty Dog mix (wine).....something that was actually brought to...

Chateau Morrisette has been my favorite winery in Virginia for many years now and never fails to impress me. The winery itself is an impressive sight and does indeed look like a rustic Chateau torn right from the pages of a europen travel guide. It is set right off of the Blue Ridge Parkway and has spectacular views of the... More

We had lunch at Chateau Morrisette this past Sunday while spending a nice weekend with my wife's sister in Willis and thoroughly enjoyed a great meal with a magnificent view and wonderful service from Kendra.

This place is beautiful and we really enjoyed our wines, the wine tour and tasting. We bought a few bottles and headed to dinner. There were 4 of us on a late May Friday evening at 6:15. The dinner is when it started to fall apart. The service was juvenile. I think everyone on staff was inexperienced. They were nice,... More
