We were looking for a nice place for a family lunch on a cold wintry day, and were delighted with the informal southern cafeteria style options provided by the Michie Tavern. We were able to serve our own potatoes, beans, chicken, pulled pork, and other...More

Eating the buffet was well worth it. However, the tour of the old reassembled Tavern was disappointing and not worth the money or time.

The food is so good and after you go through the line to get your food the servers dressed in period costumes will refill your plates. Everyone was very friendly and made our trip enjoyable.

$18 for a family style meal seems a fair price. There wasn't a whole lot of variety, it was southern/country food. The staff was good and the tour was entertaining in a homely small town way. You've got excellent mashed potatoes and biscuits. That said,...More

For a taste of food from our past, go to Michie Tavern. The chicken is excellent, and I particularly enjoy the stewed tomatoes. Cornbread and all the fixings are here. The dining area is quaint and simple, but clean.

They have cole slaw. You must pay for the full meal even if you only eat the cole slaw. It is $18 adults and $11 children plus dessert is extra.
