Very nice place, fun to look at the old bank areas. The food is very good but expensive. The wait staff are a little stiff. Some of the tables are too close together.

We visited the restaurant for dinner after someone's recommendation. On a Saturday night the place was very lively and had a great atmosphere, we were seated within 15 minutes of our arrival time and Yes we had prior reservations. We tried the fried green tomatoes with shrimp for appetizer, which was great. The entree was average, we ordered the special... More

My wife and I have tried eating here twice while visiting the area, and both times we were underwhelmed by the food. The menu options were great, we just weren't really impressed with the execution and overall flavors, and the service was about average. If the food was better, I think the prices would be justified, but we spent about... More

We had a late lunch today 3/28 and started with oysters Rockefeller which were delicious. The best of all the items we ordered was the lamb sandwich - packed with meat and super flavorful. Worth the drive alone.

This used to be a bank: the "People's Bank" logo is visible on the walls close to the ceiling. And the vault is open for your inspection. The food is quality and in good variety, though a bit pricey. Worth a visit.

We stopped by Leesburg on our way through after a long weekend in Washington. The weather was awful so we parked the car and found this beautiful dining experience. Although the outside of the building was rather cold and austere, upon entering we were promptly greeted and seated at the table of our choice next to a beautiful fireplace. The... More

This is a wonderful restaurant, one of Leesburg's oldest and most consistently good. It's on the expensive side but a nice treat for special occasions or just a very good meal. The setting is an old bank and it's been converted beautifully, it's cavernous and ornate but somehow still intimate. The summer patio is also a nice change we enjoy... More

Good food in a beautifully restored old bank on historic Leesburg's main street. From the huge old steel vault in back to the big Seth Thomas clock on the wall to the handsome wood bar in the middle of the dining room, this is a unique setting for a delicious meal. Fresh baked bread starts off many good choices on... More

I love going to Lightfoot. My husband and I went for dinner at the bar. He had the lobster bisque and I had the tomato soup. Both of us had salads and wine. The atmosphere is always pleasant and the food is fantastic. Great service too.
