Enjoyed a superb dinner at Rain prior to a play at the Barter Theatre. Recommendations on the weekend are a must - we saw several couples turned away. I hardly ever order a filet mignon, because most restaurants don't know how to cook it MR, but Rain's chef nailed it! My other half order the ribeye and it was fantastic,... More

We had a very nice dining experience at Rain. The décor is an interesting combination of an exterior which is consistent with the historic character of Abingdon and an interior which is sleek and modern but still comfortable with warm and muted colors. Our server was courteous, prompt and helpful. I chose the chicken breast stuffed with brie, apples and... More

We first visited Rain two or three years ago and we raved about the experience. But then we discovered Figaredo's two autumns ago and fell it love with it. Unfortunately, that restaurant has now closed, and so we returned to Rain on our theatre visit this past weekend. We found the décor has improved considerably, but almost everything we loved...

We did not like the menu so we choose items we really did not care for. The ambience was lacking, more like a dinner rather than a upscale restaurant. Service was okay and we were served in a reasonable time. This was our 2nd visit and nothing changed. Not a bad restaurant , just not for us.

We popped in at the recommendation of a friend. They had the fried pickle chips (great with the full dip!), one friend tried the chicken salad sandwich (the salad all fell out of the croissant with each bite but was yummy), and the other had the Plumb Burger (he said is was good). The lunch crowd consisted of four tables.... More

Great farm to table restaurant. The specials are excellent and the entire menu offers great choices. The baked oysters appetizer was a special that really exceeded our expectations. Desserts are also spectacular. Highly recommend if you are in the area.
