Hubby and I had been to the Aberdeen Barn with friends during the Williamsburg Scottish Games several years ago, and when we finished with a cold day touring the historic area, we both were thinking "steak."
This is an old fashioned steak place with attentive wait staff, good wines and of course, wonderful steak. The meal starts off with one of my favorites, a large pot of soft cheese to spread on the crackers provided. I had to have Hubby move this away from me as I could really fill up on that. Salads to start, mine with house-made blue cheese dressing and warm rolls. We opted to split the Porterhouse steak and were glad we did. This thing looked like the Tuscan steaks brought to the table in Florence. We had a wonderful Virginia cab franc from Breaux Vineyards.
Our server had been working for the Aberdeen Barn for 21 years and we had a fun time with him and the rest of the staff. I was amused at the comment from another reviewer about being stalked. Maybe they should stick with McDonald's. Attentive service is the mark of a fine dining establishment.
