Description: 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.

Of all the restaurants we tried while visiting Charlottesville, this is my favorite! The food was delicious, the staff were all very friendly, and even though ,it's a small spot, we were seated right away. Cozy atmosphere - lots of family pictures on the walls, family friendly, and a good selection of beers. Whenever we visit Charlottesville, we will definitely be stopping here!

This was recommended to us by the hotel personnel and were not disappointed. Not a large establishment but certainly has a lot going for it.. Good variety on the menu and definitely great service. Definitely worth trying out if you're near the area.

We enjoyed a yummy brunch this a.m. at Fardowners. The brunch menu has enough options to please everyone. I'm glad to know they do offer some locally grown products on menu.
We will be back for brunch again. BTW, they open at 10:00 a.m. for brunch on Sunday and they do get crowded and busy. I do not know if they accept reservations, as we did not ask.

Well thought out food, much of it local, very diverse and ever-changing beer rotation and friendly service. Usually very busy around dinner time, so there's often a wait. Probably come here twice a month, at least.
