One of our favorite places to eat in Charlottesville. Best Prime Rib dinners in the state. Staff is always great because they have all been there for years.

The food was good but the deep fried lobster tail appetizer was spectacular Our waiter was excellent and the service was great. A little pricey, but worth the stop.

Was on a First Date, and was stood up. The Hostess and Server were Great. Food was awesome, some noise from the waitress station and the decor needs to be updated, there was red tape on the booth upholstery that I choose. I made the best of it, I usually do not eat at high-end restaurants definitely worth the 3-hour drive. Had Regular cut Prime with Idaho baked potato and garden salad. The lesson I learned if a person is unsure the first date is going to work out make it worth your while and choose a great place to eat that way the disappointment won't matter as much. Thanks.

The food was wonderful, as always. We had escargots as an appetizer and followed it with the prime rib. Everything was delicious. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We were there celebrating a birthday, and got a delicious piece of cake to end the meal. The only reason I rated the service 3/5 stars was because the server made a very rude comment at the end, as we were getting ready to leave, which ruined the entire evening.

We live an hour away from the Aberdeen Barn, and there are many fine restaurants between Harrisonburg and Charlottesville. However, enjoying the best prime rib we can find on our anniversary has become a tradition for us.

Service was lacking. Scallops poorly done. Cocktail less than okay. Mortons prices for Sizzler Quality experience.

The atmosphere was very dated. Steaks were good, not great. Did not seem like a 4.5 star experience to us.

The food was good. Very traditional menu and a pleasant (also traditional) ambiance. Service was nothing special. I had told them it was my hauband’s birthday and there was no acknowledgement. It was pricey considering the entire experience. I know it has been voted a great place to go on a special occasion, but that was not our experience.

The prime rib and key lime pie were amazing! I wish there were better appetizer options. I’ve had the lamb before and although good, not worth the price. The service is excellent.

The beef was amazing..and the house-made salad dressings were excellent. The sides however, were very disappointing, even served cold.
