    I was extremely disappointed when we went here. The food was mediocre and bland. After everything I had read about the place I had an expectation of a delicious meal. Unfortunately that expectation wa...  more »

    Excellent southern Colonial food in a historical setting. It is an unlimited buffet so a good value. Definitely tourist-oriented but entertaining and delicious nonetheless.  more »

    Too American and too touristy if you get offered only the favourite dish of Jefferson. This includes Mussli = Apple juice. Nothing to write home about.

    Had a wonderful lunch there with family, great service, tasty fare, chicken was delicious! Pulled pork, yum! Very welcoming. Didn't have time to enjoy a tour, but would definitely go back and and again. Fantastic staff in stores as well. A must stop, take your time and enjoy!

    Seriously, the BEST fried chicken you will ever eat. Fantastic. They are great here. Ignore the busses and long lines. Typically there is plenty of room for regular sized parties. Pop in and ask. The tour groups are the ones waiting for the large room.

    Your business model needs tweaking. You can't get people in, and you have considerable difficulty getting people out. And your fare isn't all that outstanding. Could have had lunch any number of places, and enjoyed the experience much better.

    Such a neat place it makes me wish to live in that time period! Missed out on the famed chicken but checked out the inn and other buildings. Great gift shops and specialty stores on site (historic weapons shop and a metalwork store). Very close to Monticello and other Charlottesville points of interest.

    A great place to bring out of towners! The fried chicken is indeed quite good as are the sides. If you'd prefer baked chicken they've got that, there is also pulled pork. Bring your appetite because it's an all you can eat place! Dessert isn't included but it is good. Or head over to the country store and enjoy candy that you haven't seen since your childhood. There's plenty to see and do here. I recommend grabbing lunch here and then going to Montecello. This way you'll walk off your lunch! I would have given 5 stars, but it is expensive and it's very touristy.

Where to stay in Charlottesville

Hotels and inns in Charlottesville's lively downtown area offer proximity to the city's main attractions, but they can be on the expensive side. There are several more inexpensive options located along or near Emmet Street, which is a short drive from the main thoroughfare. Alternatively, immerse yourself in local history by staying at a centuries-old bed and breakfast. Many of these establishments are complete with fine period furnishings.
