“Had a fancy burger that was overpriced with some fancy additions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2012

We had dinner here 1 night on our stay at a nearby B&B. There aren't many other options except fast food unless you drive a fair distance--so we tried here. Very friendly service,attentive, and reasonably fast. Ordered their "Special burger" for the day. Just was not very impressed for the price,fairly thick but not very tasty. Did have a good spinach salad. However, 2 salads,2 burgers a glass of wine and a glass of beer,and 2 chocolate desserts for $70+ with tax & tip seems a little steep to me to enjoy. One lady in our group had meatloaf,and that was a large serving,and looked very good,although she said it had an unusual taste,and was "OK".

“Unexpectedly nice find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

Loved the beer selection --- and the prices--- at The Standard. I really wasn't expecting a "beer snob heaven" when we walked in, but boy were we surprised to find just that! The service was outstanding, very warm and friendly; we felt like we were well cared for without having someone hover over us.

We ordered burgers and a steamed mussels starter; the mussels had a really nice, complex white sauce with bits of sausage, but some of the mussels were just barely undercooked, leaving a less-than-perfect texture. The fully cooked ones, as well as the sauce and sausage, were delicious.

Our burgers were very tasty despite also being undercooked (we'd ordered mid-rare and they were pretty much raw in the center). I was impressed with the variety of burger combinations/toppings, again not what I'd expected, and very creative and cutting edge.

We'll be happy to return to The Standard!

“Got take - out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

Never been inside this restaurant. We got take-out while we were staying at a nearby inn. The food was good, but nothing overly gourmet or exciting. Still, I'd go back again.

“A great little restaurant !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012

Small, quaint little restaurant in Standardsville. A limited menu at the time of our visit as they had to replenish from the storm in June. Not a full menu but had the shrimp tacos and they were wonderful. Staff and service was good and we enjoyed a quite meal. Mostly locals in the restaurant so that tells me the food is good., A must if in the area.
