Had the large steak, which was excellent! Only criticism was a lot of noise from kids. Guess that the noise level depends on the time of day, we were in the early evening. Nest time, we'll go later to avoid (hopefully) the rug rats.

A co-worker organized a dinner for us at Fardowners. It was nice to get out of Charlottesville and see a little bit of the country. Fardowners is a cozy little place. Nice character and the waitstaff was super welcoming and just friendly. It was nice...More

Both the host and waitress were nice and friendly. The place was small, but we were seated quickly. The food was great, the kids ate everything and I loved the chicken caprese! We found Fardowners the second day in town and went back for dinner...More

Busy Friday night but were seated after just a few sips of our local beers. Rockfish Tacos, Banh Mi and onion rings were big successes with us. Enjoyed the friendly crowd, wish we lived closer so we could come regularly.

As a local, I really appreciate the niche of this place. It's not fancy, but the pub-style food quality is much higher than basic. In general, the wings and burgers are always flavorful and filling. The wraps are tasty, but fairly small for the price....More

This was our first time at Fardowners. My husband saw some takeout from there at a customer's house last night and he said it looked really good so we decided to drive out to Crozet from town to try it out. It is really small,...More

Visited Fardowners on birthday trip and wasn't disappointed. I opted for the Buffalo Mac and Cheese and wasn't disappointed. Was a little crowded but not too terrible. Enjoyed it a lot.

The locals clearly love this place. Every time I have stopped in Fardowners is packed with locals and families enjoying terrific food. The burgers rock. The beer is craft and tasty! You will love the history behind this place.

This is a great little pub in Crozet Va that has it all. A good and varied menu (all the pub stuff--wings, fries, GREAT nachos, local beer, full bar, sandwiches and burgers of all kinds.) You don't want to miss the fries--best in the area....More

Local bar with a lical feel. Great food and lical beet selection. Cocktails need some work, a bit limiting in this area.

At Fardowners, we provide quality pub fare & a welcoming casual atmosphere. Chef Mark Cosgrove sources local ingredients in season & our rotating selection of craft beer emphasizes Virginia breweries. Fardowners is a great place to take the family for dinner (our kids' Mac & Cheese is definitely the best around), or to come out with friends & enjoy our actively curated draft selection & live music on weekends.Fardowners restaurant takes its name from a group of Irish immigrants who labored for the Blue Ridge Railway Co. and helped construct four tunnels through the Blue Ridge mountains during the decade before the Civil War. Claudius Crozet’s remarkable feat of engineering took eight years and linked the eastern part of Virginia to the west. Opened to rail traffic in April of 1858, the railway was instrumental in putting the village of Crozet on the map. The old C&O Railroad depot can still be seen from the restaurant windows, across The Square on the other side of the tracks.
