This place is small and quaint and seems almost underground. The food menu is more small bites and appetizers, but there are some unique things on it that are very good. Has a decent local beer selection too.

I found this by accident while staying at the Omni. It's a very intimate atmosphere and it has a great vibe. Not a huge selection of beer, but worth it anyway because it is just really fun!

If you enjoy local craft beers, or a glass of wine, and want something to eat that is tasty but won't leave you feeling over-full, then this is the place. Very friendly welcome and service.

We were hoping for more if a pub environment, but it was more bar than restaurant. A limited menu. Fried chicken, fries, and fish were frozen and not very good. In the basement of the building. Very casual, local bar.

Good food, good drinks, excellent service and everyone is welcome. It would be as good for locals as for visitors who want to feel like they've found a place to call home for a while.

The women ordered brisket sliders and they were tasty, smoky, with a creamy sauce. The third slider was too much to eat, but it was so good we both ate them anyway. The men made the mistake of ordering chicken. One was ok, the other...More

Bartender kept the party alive, good selection of craft brews, "regulars" type bar. I had divots (mazarella moons) and horse balls (meatballs and bread sticks) both hit the spot for pub style fare..

Tucked away at the end of the downtown mall,LWsLivery Stable is a welcome departure from your typical restaurant/pub. Serving roasted pork shanks to eclectic salads into the wee hours. Local Beers on tap as well as local wines. One of Charlottesvilles hidden gems! (or hole in the wall)
