Foursquare Tips

  • Try the fried chicken...delicious.
  • These bonnets and pantaloons don't leave much to the imagination (i can see ankles) .......I thought this was a good Christian establishment
  • The green beans have a great kick, and the slaw is phenomenal.
  • The peach cobbler a la mode is freakin' awesome!
  • Very tasty lunch buffet, gr8 service!
  • If you're not actually at Michie Tavern, you shouldn't check in there.
  • Fried Chicken is best in Virginia
  • The stewed tomatoes taste like the best tomato soup you've ever eaten.
  • Tours and shopping are also available on site.
  • Even if the line is super long outside it moves really fast!
  • William Michie built this home in 1772 & by the late 1770s had many travelers asking for room & board. In 1784 he received a license to charge for food & beds after building a tavern.
  • Best fried chicken ever!
  • Enjoy a colonial feast, complete with fried chicken, pulled pork bbq, potatoes, coleslaw, beans, and cornbread! Also, the pewter plates & glasses are a nice touch.
  • A cheerful place to get lunch and shop a little if you're visiting Monticello or doing a vineyard tour. Definitely for tourists; don't expect more than solid country cooking. Good for families.
  • An $18 southern style buffet. It is good, but so is Golden Corral by that standard for a lot less money. The tour and shops are nice and worth a visit.
  • Go here! All the food is home cooked and buffet style. Everything was delicious and the waitresses are dressed like from the americana revolutionary time period. All very polite and good service
  • History geeks rejoice! Great Virginia food with friendly staff, and the tavern tour is a must!
  • 18.00 for a plate and soda. They only had fried chicken, mashed potatos, corn bread and cole slaw. Not worth the money.
  • Forget everything else, load up on the fried chicken!
  • Delicious Southern buffet!! I love the cornbread!!!
