Great for brunch!Chateau Morrisette offers a wonderful brunch. We took my mother and her husband there for Mother's Day and the food was perfect -- lots of variety, everything was laid out nicely, and tasted great. Service was out of this world, thank you Sherry!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth going toWe had a very nice time at Chateau Morrisette. The food was great and was much more reasonably priced than I remembered. The wine list was also great and best prices I've ever seen in a restaurant for bottles. Very good ambience and wonderful service. Many options on the menu.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCustomer ServiceWas greeted with a smile and welcome when we entered. Was seated quickly and immediatly provided water and a bread basket. Excellent waiter who was very friendly and knowledgable. Food was excellent with ample portions. Wine was served at the proper temerature. Deserts are made in house and to die for!! The prices are extremely fair.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you can find it...You have to travel a quite treacherous journey in order to get to Chateau Morrisette. The winding roads are enough to make you drink the wine! Our service was extraordinary. The wine was amazing. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone. It's located in a beautiful area and the inside of the restaurant has a very romantic feel. Their ice cream is die to for! In fact, all their desserts are delicious.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the picturesqueWe enjoyed the picturesque setting, the expansive Sunday Buffet - complete with a dessert bar, and friendly attentive service. The prime rib, collard greens, and blackberry cobbler were delicious. The site made wine was also enjoyable. Cozy atmosphere lent itself to a leisurely meal enjoyed by all in our party.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Sunday BrunchThe Sunday we went fog and rain covered the mountain top. The temperature was a balmy 39 degrees.The view was non existent due to the fog. Inside was warm and cozy making us want to linger over brunch. Now to the food, the prime rib was excellent and the omelets cooked just perfectly. The dessert table was another favorite with many rich pastries. The only thing missing was music not loud obnoxious music but more the chamber type quiet and soothing. We had a wonderful time.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful foodThe Chateau is a great place for a great meal. The Sunday brunch offers a great variety of foods that should please everyone, from the carving station with prime rib and Virginia Ham to breakfast omelets and side dishes and scrumptious desserts. Our group of four really enjoyed ourselves and were stuffed when we left. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The day was foggy so eating outdoors wasn't an option this time but usually the views are brethtaking and the gardens spectacular. We would recommend this Sunday brunch as well as the weekday menu to anyone who wants a special dining experience. Don't balk at the price for the brunch (26.99 pp) because it is well worth it!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat service, friendly staff.greatgreat service, friendly staff.great food and wine with a wonderful view.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my friend's BirthdayIt was my friend's Birthday and we had a great time!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Chateau MorissetteWe eat here twice per year on average and can never wait to come back.

The collards were to die for. Autum our waitress was the best and our experience wonderful. Thanks Autum!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth the drive!It was my second trip and just as good as my first.

It is a real gem.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOur son with his prom dateOur son with his prom date and 6 of their friends ate there Friday night before the Carroll County prom. They said the food was delicious and they had a great time!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good. TheirThe food was very good. Their spin on shrimp and grits was good but far from classic. There was to much broth and you could not taste the smoked guada mentioned in the description. The grits where more like chopped hominy than grits and the gardenia garnish could be left out its not need and adds nothing to the taste. But the flavor was excellent, we would dine here again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTried the filet mignon thisTried the filet mignon this time and it was so tender you could have cut it with a fork. The veggies were tender and cooked just right and the sweet potato was perfect. Could not have asked for better service either.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the driveAlways enjoyable. Food is fabulous and the ambiance of the restaurant is wonderful. On a pretty day dining outside offers stunning views.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as usualI had the wild Elk which was very good but is a specialty dish. My wife had the country fried steak which was excellent as usual. Logan, our server, did a great job serving us even as he helped what appeared to be a wedding party of 10 at the same time. The only issue we had was that the room was warmer than we liked and eventually my wife had to leave because of it. I think part of the problem was that we were seated in a corner by a south facing window because the other guests did not seem to be troubled by the temperature at all.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch! My wife and ITop Notch! My wife and I just enjoyed their Mountain Adventure weekend! EXCELLENT! Kudos to Chef Sterling and the awesome offerings this weekend. We ate their this weekend and had the BBQ Trout which was superb. Great food and wine topped off by exceptional service from Logan made this another excellent Chateau Morrisette dining experience! Thank you!
P.S. we also were very impressed with many of their NEW offerings from their regular menu. We can't wait to return!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant Or Casual; Delicious!Beautiful lodge restaurant with mountain scenery. Elegant, rustic, and casual. The chef pays attention to details. Some in our party had dietary restrictions, and emailing ahead to inquire about availability of gluten free and lactose free menu items was met very graciously and enthusiastically. We were not disappointed! Don't miss the Gouda Grits! Top-notch service and delicious cuisine in a beautiful setting is perfect for celebrating any occasion or none at all. All of Chateau Morrisette's fabulous wines are available in the restaurant. The winery and restaurant are a great destination experience when spending time in the Blue Ridge mountains of southwest Virginia. Reservations recommended.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI have never been disappointedI have never been disappointed when having lunch or dinner at the Chateau.

The food was excellent, but portions were quite large for senior citizens. It took quite some time for dessert to arrive, but considering it was a weekday lunch, not much of a problem. Desserts were excellent, by the way.
My husband knew what wine he wanted with his meal, but from overhearing the waiter at nearby tables, the choices and descriptions of wines were cheerfully and patiently described for those who needed help.
We have been coming to Chatea Morrisette for years and it seems just to get better.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy!Best tasting buffet I've ever had! Wish I had a 2 nd stomach so that I could've tried all the desserts! The drive up,was great!

It is still our favorite place for a relaxing experience and a wonderful meal.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLaughter & Wine - the BEST MedicineI was in town (Collinsville, VA) from Chicago, taking care of family business. A old girlfriend and I had the most wonderful lunch and sat for 2.5 hrs, enjoying our lunch, the wine, and lots and lots of laughs. So, if it was a little loud, it was just our laughter... :)4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT FIND, GREAT FOODThe food and service at Chateau Morrisette were excellent. Given the quality of the food, the prices were very moderate. The ambiance of the dining area was excellent, and the table spacing served to keep other tables' conversations muted. Since the Chateau is also a winery, the wine selection was very good and inexpensively priced. I recommend the Chateau to anyone in the area along the Blue Ridge Parkway. When we return to the area, we definitely will go back to Chateau--even if it requires more driving than we normally like.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed the brunchReally enjoyed the brunch on Easter Sunday and will deifinitely come back and enjoy it again soon.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe did the Easter Brunch andWe did the Easter Brunch and had a great meal along with very good service.
