$65 for a smallish salad, a tiny entree and a still frozen cheesecake not including wine at room temperature? disappointing!

This inn with rooms and a restaurant for one sitting in the evening on certain days (check ahead) is located in between Culpeper and Orange Virginia on Route 15, the so-called Constitution Route. Jefferson and Madison passed this way during their four day trek to Phiiladelphia first to declare Independence and then to craft a Constitution. The current owners claim... More

A varied and exciting menu, in a beautiful dining environment. The staff made extra efforts, patiently and politely, and the overall experience was memorable and pleasant in every way.

I cant find enough adequate words to describe our evening... Everything was MOUTHWATERING. I am not sure I can have a steak anywhere else ever again... Meander is a lovely setting ... the staff so very warm and friendly. No pretension. The chef is magnificent... I cant wait to go back!!!!!!

We had a fabulous candlelit meal this last Saturday evening. We were pleasantly surprised by the selections on the menu. Also pleased to see they offered Virginia wines. Even if you are not staying there the trip for dinner would be worth it.

I just have to say please do not take any heed to the review "Turn Back Now". I am a seasoned traveler. I have a seasoned palate and high expectations. I logged on to Trip Advisor this morning to rate my recent stays in Napa, California. I can't do that now because I have to respond to the person that... More

Well worth the trip to this restaurant at this lovely historic inn. Fine dining at a reasonable price, very romantic setting, flowers and candlelight on each table. All food was delicious and fresh; and if you can spend the night, breakfast is just as wonderful!

My college roommate and I visited The Inn at Meander and so enjoyed the delicious meals. Several unique choices are offered each evening----the fish is freah and perfectly prepared. They have their own chef who brings her great taste and flavor from the kitchen to the dining table. Wine pairings are delicious! and well chosen. Fabulous desserts. After dinner sit... More

Enjoyed a wonderful Four Course Dinner. The service, food and staff were outstanding. This is your opportunity to try an outstanding food and wine pairing. Their food is paired only with wonderful wines from Virginia and most of the dishes are made with local produce and organic foods. A great culinary experience.
