First and foremost, highly recommend reservations as this is not a large place and waiting can be a little long without. Went there to celebrate my son's birthday and it is a bit of a drive from Blacksburg. Everything is homemade and prepared very nicely. I had the Bison steak, ordered Med Rare. However, it came out Well Done, so... More

Yesterday part of my family, 3 couples and a grandchild, ate here for midweek dinner. My expectations were high having been here when visiting this past summer....and we were not disappointed! First it is important to note that the menu is well stocked and varied, both simple offerings (flat breads) and many fancy offerings. The wine list has selections for... More

My daughter and I went here on a friend's rave review of the restaurant. Unfortunately, it didn't meet our expectations. The place is very charming and rustic..... located virtually in the middle of nowhere. Wine selection was good and our waitress was attentive. We ordered a house salad which was very fresh but I was disappointed they didn't serve any... More

We were really looking forward to this evening. The ride to the restaurant was beautiful and interesting at the same time. Traveling the curvey country... More

Our hosts from Inn at Riverbend recommended this eatery, and we loved it. Food was excellent, large variety, quaint location, and enjoyed the singer providing entertainment.

Pleasant drive from Virginia Tech to this setting in the Virginia Countryside, and at this time of year, just seeing the colors change. We arrived at 10:30 when they open and had no problems with parking or getting a seat. The old hardware store converted to a restaurant has tons of charm...and then the food. The buffet has all you... More

I wanted to treat my Va Tech student to a nice meal out and went here on the recommendation of my daughter's roommate, who is from Blacksburg. We have great restaurants in our Ohio home city. but this little gem of a place stood up to some of our best. My daughter is not a huge salad fan, but after... More

On a recent football weekend, friends who lived in Blacksburg, VA suggested we all go to The Palisades for dinner. They said" great food and atmosphere, but never stuffy or pretentious." They clearly forgot to add..."amazing menu!" Our first course included locally sourced cheese platter and the Fresh peach and jalapeño quesadilla! Both paired greatly with a great Ridge Merlot!...
