The interior feels 20 years old. That's part of the charm. Clean, nicely kept up, and dimly lighted this is a place where professional waitress and waiter's work. Some say this is a pricey place, it was the least expensive prime rib dinner of it's...More

Service was great. Food was average. Nothing special or over the top and worth this kind of money. Might go back if I was ever in the area again, but seriously doubt it.

Thia is our favorite restaurant in Charlottesville. They offer a great bar and wonderful steaks. The food is very good and the deserts are really tasty. It is located close to the hotela and campus.

My expectations were high, my experience was low. I ordered a $32 petite filet mignon, baked potato, salad. The steak was either pre-marked (you know, the grill marks in criss-cross), or was cooked on a crisscross grill, at any rate the crisscrosses were burnt. I...More
