So I find some of the Afton, Waynesboro, and Crozet ratings to be super-inflated. Fardowner's fits this criterium as it is a simple bar/pub menu. It has four outside seating areas - so don't order early, instead order once onsite to avoid wasting your time....The burgers are no better than BK/etc, and available beer can't match the brewery located on Critzers Shop Rd. TripAdvisor is a great predictor of quality service/food - this isn't an exception, but it's also not extraordinarily great.More

Takeout only because of COVID. We ordered different varieties of mac and cheese (personally I liked the chili mac the best), onion rings, and chicken quesadillas. Food was ready quickly and pickup was a breeze — and it was all tasty! Excellent little place and...next time I hope we can dine in instead.More

It is hard to rate a place during these times, but ordered to go the first night we were visiting Crozet. It was just two doors down from where we stayed and was recommended. It was quick and food was great. MAc and cheese very...good but a bit too much cheese for me. Burger was huge and well done as far as presentation and taste. Was a bit weird walking in and ordering, not inviting, as workers were sitting there and smoking and it was dark and gloomy but person who took our order was fast and friendly. Would return when they can actually openMore

I have eaten here for Brunch and Dinner a few times and have been impressed everytime. I love the Fardowner's Bowl and Bloody Mary for Brunch and the WIngs and Fardowner Burger for Dinner. The Bloody Mary is an event unto itself.

The title is all I need to say. Four OBVIOUS mouse poops rolling around the edge of my plate. Yes, the building is old, but extermination techniques are available.

The servers, bartenders, cooks and managers are always welcoming and accomodating. I think of this place as my kitchen-away-from-my-kitchen. Thanks, Fd

Enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and service. The Reuben and burger were tasty. Conveniently, was open on Monday, while others in Crozet were closed,

Always a favorite for our family. We love the friendly staff, the food, and the fact that our kiddo feels so comfortable there. We always take our family and friends here when they visit.

Stopped by with family for a late lunch and had a blast! Food was great, beer even better and there are some good folks there. Nice, relaxed and comfortable setting. Lots of choices on the menu and again, some really good beer! Will definitely go...back next time I’m near! Thanks to everyone there...!More

I think that except for guide dogs it is illegal in Virginia to bring dogs into restaurants.
