The restaurant is part of the Inn at VT so there is plenty of parking. It has a pleasant decor. The prices are fair. The service was friendly and helpful but inexperienced. The lemongrass soup was tasty but needed salt. The salad of tomatoes and watermelon was fantastic. The seafood appetizer was plentiful. The filet and ribeye were thin but... More

The restaurant is located in The Inn at Virginia Tech. We stayed there for three nights and had the breakfast buffet every morning. The selection was excellent, including salmon and the food was very good. I had the steak dinner in the evening and it was one of the best meals that I have had in a long time. The... More

Preston's at the Inn at Virginia Tech is lovely! The live music is very subtle but perfect, the food is ample and delicious, the service great and the price reasonable for such a sumptious meal with really nice desserts. Mimosas included!

I had a large party for the Thanksgiving Buffet. First off: The food was not very good. They had a wide assortment of mediocre “traditional” dishes many of which were poorly prepared. For example: The salad greens had slimy black leaves here and there, the cut ends of the broccoli were black, some of the cherry tomatoes were mushy, etc.... More

The menu is very limited but most of the entrees are from locally sourced products. The prices are very reasonable and portion size is perfect. I ordered Green Pea Soup and Fried Green Tomatoes with Crab Cakes. The Pea soup was little watery but the crab cakes and fried tomatoes were delicious.

The breakfast buffet food quality was OK, but it was virtually empty for all three days I went there. Nobody was paying attention. When I showed it to the manager, she was visibly surprised each time...really?
