We liked that after touring Monticello that there was a place to relax and eat. However, it is just cafeteria food. It is way to heavy for a daytime meal. We stood in line outside and once in the door, you are in the cafeteria line. What I really didn't like was that you get your tray, fill your dish and then you have to look for your own table. It was crowded and we went from dining room to dining room looking for a seat. Several tables are reserved for bus groups. What is good, is that once you are seated, the staff comes around asking if you want more chicken, biscuits, etc. You can eat as much as you want. The beverages and dessert are extra. Our bill for two was $49 + tip. Would I eat there again? Yes, because it is part of history and by the time we would have left the grounds and looked for a place to eat we would have wasted time.
