Grandfathers birthday

Ask for a table not by the bar, it's really noisy and hard to hear for older ppl. The food is always fabulous here, I love the berry salad and the filet is my all time favorite. They are very helpful when it comes to gluten issues too! The oysters Rockefeller were huge and my family loves them! I... read more

Our visit to Leesburg was accompanied by a perfect lunch at this historic bank building. The sandwiches were exquisite served with fresh salad and homemade French fries. The decor is quaint with the men's room in the old vault of the bank. The mezzanine where private parties are held was decorated with beautiful old chandeliers and the circular bar is... More

I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Try the soups they are always amazing! If they offer it have "Ingrid's favorite" the Crab cake Reuben. A great take on local crab cakes. They also have a chef's table in the kitchen, which is a great experience and reasonably priced when compared to the same experience at... More

I rarely write negative reviews online however the visit to light foot rubbed me the wrong way. Walked in with 5 other people around 8:15 pm without a reservation on a Tuesday. Asked for a table of 6, while looking at plenty of open seating for 6 in the restaurant, this is where it got weird. One of the people... More

Fascinating interior of an old, grand, bank. Terrific bar. Great food. But the vibe is quite stuffy.

We have dined at Lightfoot many times, and generally find the food and service to be very good and sometimes excellent. The combinations of ingredients and seasonings have greatly improved through the years and the food quality is top notch. We stopped in for a drink and app on New Year's Eve and were greatly disappointed to find that the... More

We love the food here. Can't find a better crab cake in Leesburg!! And the filet is always perfect! We have dined here many times over the last few years and everything I have ordered has been really wonderful. I am a taster and sharer, so based on sampling others plates I do not recommend the fried green tomatoes or... More

The 3 of us had a 6:30 reservation. We were seated immediately. I wish I knew our waiter's name as he was efficient and attentive with a good sense of humor. Food was excellent as well. This was my second time dining at Lightfoot and will return!
