  • Cool old building with nice service in an authentic historic setting. Beer selection was good. Was hoping for a traditionally brewed beer or one on tap but otherwise nice experience.  more »
  • We go twice a month. Best chicken, mashed potatoes, stewed tomatoes, barbecue, green beans, black eyed peas, corn bread, biscuits, as much as you want to eat.  more »

  • Great buffet with historic context and attentive service. My wife thinks it's the best fried chicken she's ever had. It's definitely top-notch. The baked chicken is also extremely good, and the sides are delicious. Also, it's a buffet, and reasonably priced at that. What a great way to conclude a vacation visiting historical locations in central Virginia!
  • The food is good! Fried Chicken and multiple side dishes. The souvenirs are not bad . The staff is friendly. Apparently there's no young men and women in the era portrayed.
