Consistently good food with competent servers. Strong "local" feel where everyone is made to feel welcome. The evening specials are outstanding. The draft beer selection changes frequently. This is great place to eat.

If you didn't know where "The Square" was in Crozet, it would be easy to miss this place, as it's just off the main drag. We stopped in for lunch prior to hitting the nearby wineries. The crab cake sandwich and Fardowners burger were excellent,...More

My wife and I used Trip Advisor to find Fardowners Restaurant. The restaurant is a quaint "hole-in-the-wall" type of establishment that always seems to over deliver. The atmosphere was very nice. Somewhat noisy but not too loud. The tables are kind of close to one...More

The folks at Fardowners never cease to impress. I had seared tuna tonight, and it was prepared perfectly...on a bed of rice pilaf and fresh asparagus. Much love!

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.
