We went to the dining room for breakfast and loved the nostalgic atmosphere. There was even a fire in the fireplace. The food, once we got it, was very good. It seemed there was a mix up in the kitchen and somehow my husband got...More

This used to be the finest of places to enjoy a special dinner with great service and foods. On our last visit, it was under new ownership and we found the overall quality of eating there just not the same.

Limited seating, so call for reservations. This is an historic Inn that should be a stop when visiting Lewisburg. “Foodies “ will enjoy the variety and quality of the offerings.

Lewisburg in itself is a little gem just off the I64 corridor and the General Lewis Inn is a piece of this elegance. Good fine dining menu and restaurant ambiance. Maybe priced a little on the high side,particularly pre dinner drinks.

I do not believe the General Lewis Inn would be large enough. From our visit, I'd suggest the Greenbrier in White Sulpher Springs, only 10 miles away.
