I decided to take in lunch at Michie Tavern after a thoroughly enjoyable visit to Monticello. Unfortunately, I can’t say I enjoyed lunch as much as my tour of the famous home of Thomas Jefferson. The buffet style lunch was very expensive considering the limited selection and poor quality of the food. I can’t, in good conscience, recommend this establishment to anyone.

Dear Friend: It is always helpful to receive feedback from our guests. Monticello is a World Heritage Site and many visitors review the Tavern as a perfect complement to touring Thomas Jefferson’s home. After visiting the home of Presidents Jefferson and Monroe, guests enjoy experiencing the past through their “18th century counterparts”. . . people that are more like the general public of the past vs. top ranking officials. For visitors who have not dined with us, they should know they may eat as much as they desire of fried chicken, baked chicken, hickory smoked pork barbecue, stewed tomatoes, black eyed peas, green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, cole slaw, tavern beets, biscuits, cornbread and more. Many guests enjoy our bill of fare as their main meal of the day. Too, we encourage guests to express any concerns they may have when they are here so we can remedy the situation right away. We always want our guests to be pleased with their experience at Michie Tavern . . . whether they like southern food or not.

Although this is a buffet it is very good. Traditional food, very good especially the fried chicken. Service after one pass through the buffet. Friendly and helpful.
