Description: Serving great American food with a worldly flair, we’re open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 3pm for lunch and 5pm to 9pm for dinner. We also serve a lovely brunch on Sunday from 10am to 3pm and dinner from 5pm to 8pm. The atmosphere is at the same time elegant and casual. The richness and warmth of the hand-planed wood-paneled walls provides a comfortable dining experience that can be enjoyed equally in dressy-casual attire or hiking shorts. We are located in the heart of historic Sperryville, Virginia, 75 miles west of Washington D.C., at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We look forward to serving you soon!

We stopped in this small town after a day hike at Old Rag mountain. We were starving, and it was getting late, so we figured anything would be fine. Well.... we got WAY more that we expected! The food was simly amazing! The appetizer was made with home grown tomatoes from a local farmer. The steaks and burgers tasted as if they just walked from the pasture to the restaurant. What a wonderful surprise.

High quality food at reasonable prices, knowledgable staff, very relaxed and casual place where you could turn up in hiking gear or a shirt and tie. Unexpected find!

Great stop on your way in or out of the popular hiking trails of the Shenandoah! Excellent food and we took advantage of gorgeous weather and sat on the open, shaded deck. We visited for lunch so I ordered the smoked salmon wrap. It was so fresh and delicious with a combo of veggies, goat cheese and salmon...I was very pleased. The French fries are very good also! Hubby had the Rueben....it was huge and he was in heaven.
