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.

A bit pricy, but good food

We called at the last minute and they were able to accommodate six for dinner in a Friday night. The atmosphere was nice, a bit loud. The food was tasty, but they did mix up my steak with my husband but every thing was good. The dessert, peaches and cream Cheesecake was wonderful. Over all it was a... read more

We decided to go to a nice place for dinner a day after our International rally. It is in the cute town of Lewisburg. Very nice and cozy place. It is a bit spendy, but for the quality of the food, it was worth it.

I was at the Greenbrier Classic and went to eat at The Livery. One of the best meals I've ever had. I've eaten at restaurants all over the U.S. but this was one of the best if not THE best I've ever had!! Highly recommend the prime rib and caesar salad. Will defintely be going back.

We were at the Greenbrier for the opening of the new Tennis Pavilion last weekend. The restaurants at the Resort were booked a week in advance. I was able to make a reservation at The Livery which was new to us. We have enjoyed meals at several good restaurants in Lewisburg and the Livery was great. Our meals were very... More

Our party visited The Livery Tavern on the first evening of our visit to Lewisburg. We chose to sit outside and share the Charcutine Board (assorted local cheeses and meats, stone ground mustard, olive tapenade) and drinks. Our waiter was very prompt refilling our drinks and checked on us frequently. We enjoyed the patio’s casual atmosphere and view that it... More

This was our first dinner in Lewisburg. We were seated on the porch, still a bit damp after earlier showers. Our drink and appetizers were delicious, with special kudos for the sweatbreads and the oysters. All of our entrees were excellent, though the lamb became a fabulous example of accountability by the restaurant and particularly by the chef. My lamb... More

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.
