Six of us ate here for a sibling weekend. 2 had duck, 2 had the pork chop, 1 had the meat loaf and 1 had fish, so we were very diversified with our menu choices. All meals were excellent and the service was very good considering it was a Saturday night and they were extremely busy. We ate upstairs which... More

During the Christmas holidays we took our daughters and their spouses for dinner. It was as good as it has ever been. It was a real treat for all. This is our favorite place to dine in Charlottesville and very reasonably priced. Family friendly.

We went to the Local to meet up with family who live in Charlottesville at their recommendation. The ambiance was lovely--we were in their upstairs back building. It was a busy night and our waitress kind of forgot us in the fray as the night went on. My husband and I both got the grass-fed burger and asked for them... More

My husband and I ate here about a year ago and had awful service. We waited over an hour for a table and had an indifferent and borderline rude server who felt it was more important to socialize with friends at the bar rather than do her job. We waited more than 20 minutes for drinks and refills and even... More

This was a post game dinner outing with the group of 7. Everyone ordered something different and they all seemed to like their dishes. Mine was good but not terribly remarkable. The ambience is great, cozy/rustic and very lively. Service was fine. Charlottesville has alot more to offer than you might expect so I would probably try some other places... More

We had our son's rehearsal dinner here 12/16/16. Michele was so professional and competent. Everything was handled down to the last detail. FOOD was excellent and so was the service. Dont judge this little place from outside appearances. The Hearth room upstairs is perfect for 40 people affairs. It is very charming, rustic and service is great@

Was here for a rehearsal dinner. The atmosphere was very cozy and relaxed. The food was fabulous. I had the beef. It was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right. A definite place to eat if you are in the Charlottesville area.

We had heard such great reviews from a lot of the local residents near our resort, so we had to check it out. We are on our honeymoon and needed to find a good place where my husband and I could both enjoy food and alcohol with our certain dietary restrictions. Absolutely delicious! My husband had the fried snapper over... More

Really enjoyed the ambiance and the food here. We brought our teen-aged kids and they enjoyed as well. Reasonably priced and try the local wines.

Was there this past weekend for the Rehearsal dinner for a family wedding. It was beautiful, the food was excellent and the service was impeccable! Wait staff was so friendly and fun and the event went off without a hitch. They also catered the Wedding dinner the next night out at Mount Ida Farm and the food was also great... More
