After touring Monticello, we stopped here for a late lunch. Our teenagers loved it. They raved about the fried chicken and even ate black eyed peas. It's a buffet serving southern country style food. My teenagers thought it was great. Two thumbs up from my...More

Cool little stop...we shopped and wandered the grounds...we had already eaten, but would try the tavern on our next visit... Staff were very knowledgable and very polite and accommodating. Bathrooms were clean but required use of stairs...handicapped please beware...

One of the best places to eat in Charlottesville. Fried Chicken was flavorful along with everything else. Biscuits are fluffy and the sides are oh-so delicious. Be sure to learn of its historical story, especially about its original location.

We come here to eat every time we drive by the exit on I-64. Chicken is the best I’ve ever had. It is consistently juicy and crispy. Sides are good too, and it’s all you can eat. Quaint historic tavern setting. Well worth the money!!!

This was the best fried chicken I’ve ever had and the people were so great to us! The place has a great historical story (oldest tavern in the county) and a neat campus with cool little shops. The food is amazing. I’ll be back!

Food was good, not nothing more than a tourist trap,especially when you read the history and discover the place was moved there in the 1920’s to be close to Monticello. I guess the prices were fair at about $20 a head, but it is cafeteria...More
