Short and sweet! The reception upon our arrival was friendly and welcoming. The food was good, the prices were reasonable and the service was personal and friendly. We do a lot of travel in lots of places and those are the qualities we always look for. This restaurant gets an "A". Hope you will go there and hope you will... More

We were just driving past Abingdon and chose Rain accidentally. After our dinner, we felt fortunate, as the food, the ambiance, and the service were all recommendable! Ever since Starving Artist closed, we had given up the luxury of stopping in Abingdon to dine. While Rain is quite different (e.g., quite a bit more expensive), our good experience here will...

This place has really good food and is well priced considering the food and ambiance. It has a little of everything but along side the other nice restaurants in Abingdon, it does not disappoint.

Excellent food - we had the Stuffed Chicken Breast and Ahi Tuna. Great draft beer selection, and my date had a perfect and generous cocktail. Apple pie for dessert was well worth the calories. Great, genuine service.

Upbeat atmosphere but also able to have quiet conversation. Great dinner and drinks. Next time we'll hit the bar for a drink before dinner.

Thought we would try this restaurant since it was rated high. I also liked what I saw on the menu that was on their website. We arrived on a Friday at 12:30 and was surprised that we were seated with ease, and noticed that there were only 4 other people in this fairly large dining area of the restaurant, especially...

We had read some Tripadvisor comments and decided to have a few appetizers and drinks before the Barter II play. It was a good decision, although Rain in on the outer edge of a reasonable walking distance from the Barters. The wedge salad and the eggplant appetizers were really good. The calamari was ok, but a little too much breading.... More

What a surprise to find such a great dinning experience in this small town. It's so nice to experience great, well thought out, exceptionally prepared food with fantastic service. Beautiful setting, but a little noisy. Beautiful bar area. I had the Rock fish special. Fantastic. Great flavors brought together consisting of a cream corn, fried green tomatoes topped with a...

So I had heard mixed reviews of this place before going on a business dinner. I was very satisfied. I ordered the Ahi Tuna fish and when it came out I had some doubt in the tuna but it was really good. Service was very good for a big party (16). Appetizers Calamari and Buffalo Shrimp both were very good... More
