We stopped by here after being turned away at the Jefferson Plantation due to huge crowds.
This is a perfect look at a historical tavern / road-house from the late 1700s. You can wander from room to room and outside the building while listening to a recorded explanation of what you are seeing and just how it fits into history.

Well worth the time.

We had lunch at "The Ordinary", which is the buffet style restaurant inside the old Tavern. The cost was 2$ per adult if purchased when we paid for the meal. The tour includes the ballroom, bedrooms, kitchens, and even a privy. Take your time and see it all, the clothing shop has "Made in the USA" items, which are pretty had to find.

We love this place. The tour was fun and interesting. The buffet was delicious. All of the items from the chicken to the sides were so good. The dessert was yummy, we had the ice cream cookie. Love it!!! Great service too.

When visiting Monticello, stop by here for a great lunch. It is a little pricey, but the atmosphere is cool and visitors to Virginia love it. I usually only go there when someone is treating ($20 a meal), but you do get as much as you want....it's cafeteria style: with costumes.
