Just how great this place is from the outside! They epitomize the word unpretentious! Walk in, sit down and have some of the best pub food you could ask for. Their secret weapon is the Mac-n-Cheese. It comes in a big bowl and will take...More

Food in plastic baskets lined with wax paper kind of place. I always want to love the food here, because I love a good dive, but it's ho-hum. I often review the menu again and again and nothing really appeals. I am not a big...More

A wide variety of beer on tap and excellent food to go with the beer. Family friendly. Usually busy, but the crowd is part of this restaurant's charm. Local food, local vibe. The vegetarian dishes are excellent. Vegans should call ahead and inquire. If your...More

This is the best restaurant in the extended Crozet area! The chefs have even won local cooking contests for years. They never disappoint!

At Fardowners, we provide quality pub fare & a welcoming casual atmosphere. Chef Mark Cosgrove sources local ingredients in season & our rotating selection of craft beer emphasizes Virginia breweries. Fardowners is a great place to take the family for dinner (our kids' Mac & Cheese is definitely the best around), or to come out with friends & enjoy our actively curated draft selection & live music on weekends.Fardowners restaurant takes its name from a group of Irish immigrants who labored for the Blue Ridge Railway Co. and helped construct four tunnels through the Blue Ridge mountains during the decade before the Civil War. Claudius Crozet’s remarkable feat of engineering took eight years and linked the eastern part of Virginia to the west. Opened to rail traffic in April of 1858, the railway was instrumental in putting the village of Crozet on the map. The old C&O Railroad depot can still be seen from the restaurant windows, across The Square on the other side of the tracks.
