“Over-rated?”

Blue Toad Hard Cider
Ranked #5 of 6 Restaurants in Afton
Cuisines: American
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night
Description: Old-school values, new-world sensibilities. Born in a barn, Blue Toad Cider honors the tradition and legacy of America’s first preferred beverage by brewing an all-natural and eminently drinkable hard cider using locally grown apples in Western New York and apples grown in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Rather than solely using European-style tart and bitter apples, Blue Toad Hard Cider uses a cider blend of three to four different apple varieties (replete with natural seasonal variation) grown in areas near Rochester, New York and Tyro, Virginia. Our production takes place at our cideries located in the Genesee Regional Market in Rochester, New York and at the base of Wintergreen Resort in Roseland, Virginia. We believe our cider is different – more authentic, more drinkable, more responsibly produced, more of an experience – than the more mass-produced ciders that may use imported concentrates. We hope you’ll treat yourself to a bottle, can or glass of our hard cider soon to savor that difference. We think you’ll be back for another.

“Over-rated?”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Restaurant was recommended by other travellers. Found food to be average and the inside atmosphere rather noisy that night. Pizza was huge and more than we could eat, but they only offered one size. Can say I have been there but doubt I would return; it was disappointing.

I have lunch here a few times with friends and relatives. I loved it, and I loved the prices. I was never dissappointed.

We had a fun evening with the children relaxed and happy playing outside while we adults chatted had a drink and relaxed. Very much like an English pub

“Awful commercially processed food”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Don't go here if you value fresh food or vegetables. Their menu consists of hotdogs, hamburgers & french fries, soft serve ice cream. All junk food.
