If you are at VIR or staying local this restaurant and tavern are worth trying. Food is very good in the restaurant with a lighter menu in the tavern for a more casual environment. Prices are reasonable and the facility has nice local charm.

The convenience of this place is what makes it. It is best for after activities drinks and a snack. The meals were somewhat expensive and just ok. If you are a foodie, this place is not that. You can get simple salads and pub fare.

Nothing to write home about these days. The quality has gone down a bit over the past year or so but the prices remain where they have always been - on the high side. It's in a way cool old building that is great for...More
