First and foremost, our family loves the town of Lewisburg; it's shops, people and rich history. Our family has been visiting Lewisburg since 2003 when we purchased Westwinds, a horse farm in western Virginia near Lake Moomaw. While we've enjoyed the several restaurants in town, we also felt the locals as well as tourists would welcome and support more restaurant options, and so far we've been right! Our family's first restaurant, Stella's, has been a hit since we opened in January, 2011. Stella's, named and inspired after our mom Alice Stella Hirt who passed away in 1985, is warm, welcoming and elegant, just like our mom was. Stella's has many feminine touches which were influenced by our mom and put into place by Tammy. Our newest restaurant, The Livery Tavern, on the other hand is a very masculine interpretation of a mid-1800's tavern, with an open beamed ceiling and a generous use of natural materials and earth tones both inside and out. The Livery has a full bar, privacy booth seating, outdoor patio seating and an extensive wine and port list. Our menu is a reflection of this same interpretation, with dishes including grilled venison, quail, lamb and local beef cuts like 2 inch bone-in rib eyes. The Livery is also fashioned with a unique military motif to honor our father Major General John B. Hirt USMC, who passed away in 2012. You'll find these military influences in our logo and other decorative treatments inside the restaurant.

Compliments to the chef!

Food was truly spectacular. The atmosphere was great and the service was good but slow. We were there from 6:30-9:30 for a table for four on a Friday evening with Open Table Reservation. Don't get me wrong - it was worth the wait but it sure took a while. Don't come if you are in a hurry. Even our... read more

If The Livery is number 3 on Trip Advisor's list, 1 and 2 must be off the chart. Several nights ago, my wife and I had a wonderful dinner. At the bar, they had my Laphroaig whisky. Not only the 10 year but the 18 as well. Always extra points for this. Our dinner started with a Caesar salad. But... More

excellent preparation and plating. We tried the sweetbreads - they were pan fried and served in a small skillet with grilled spinach and grape tomatoes and radish. We had the same dinner - both had the bone-in porkchop. about 1 1/2 inches thick and perfectly grilled- moist and slight pink all the way though. Served simply with piped potatoes and... More

My husband and I enjoyed not only the wonderful food but also the attentive wait staff. I had the best possible scallop dish and my husband had the delicious beef dish. We enjoyed our waiter Nathan who was not only friendly but very helpful. The Livery was a great experience that we will have again.

The Livery is a must when we visit Lewisburg, always a great experience. Limited but excellent menu. Ordered the coffee-rubbed ribeye this evening (chef's special) prepared nicely, but the cut of meat was not so great. I realize things happen sometimes, but I was a bit disappointed that I had to wrestle with the steak. About halfway through, I decided... More

My wife and I dropped by the greenbriar with our children to show them where we got married. We stopped by the Livery on a whim and had an outstanding but slightly pricey meal. It couldn't have been too overpriced as we couldn't w a it to go there the next night as well. The children were well cared for... More

Been here two or three times - excellent service and product every time. Take whatever the server recommends 100% of the time.

Very nice meal at the Livery in the quaint town of Lewisburg WV. Decor and ambiance were pleasant. Best Caesar salad I have had in a long time (addition of pine nuts and lightly fried brussel sprouts). Main course of Game Sampler was very nicely cooked. Wine list was solid and well priced wines by the glass.

When one of my favorite restaurants closed I was very upset because I always looked forward to visiting my vacation cabin knowing I was in for an excellent meal.

Description

First and foremost, our family loves the town of Lewisburg; it's shops, people and rich history. Our family has been visiting Lewisburg since 2003 when we purchased Westwinds, a horse farm in western Virginia near Lake Moomaw. While we've enjoyed the several restaurants in town, we also felt the locals as well as tourists would welcome and support more restaurant options, and so far we've been right! Our family's first restaurant, Stella's, has been a hit since we opened in January, 2011. Stella's, named and inspired after our mom Alice Stella Hirt who passed away in 1985, is warm, welcoming and elegant, just like our mom was. Stella's has many feminine touches which were influenced by our mom and put into place by Tammy. Our newest restaurant, The Livery Tavern, on the other hand is a very masculine interpretation of a mid-1800's tavern, with an open beamed ceiling and a generous use of natural materials and earth tones both inside and out. The Livery has a full bar, privacy booth seating, outdoor patio seating and an extensive wine and port list. Our menu is a reflection of this same interpretation, with dishes including grilled venison, quail, lamb and local beef cuts like 2 inch bone-in rib eyes. The Livery is also fashioned with a unique military motif to honor our father Major General John B. Hirt USMC, who passed away in 2012. You'll find these military influences in our logo and other decorative treatments inside the restaurant.
