Today, The Hunt Room is an intimate tavern tucked away in the heart of The Cavalier, serving simple cuisine inspired by rustic, old world traditions alongside hand-crafted cocktails, beers and wines.

Overall just OK. Ambience terrific; nice bar atmosphere. Drinks are interesting with an extensive menu for them. Unfortunately, only one menu per table so with 4 people, it may take a while for everyone to figure out what they want. Took 35 minutes to have any orders taken, but once that happened, the food and drinks came out quickly. Not fine dining so better for burgers or sandwiches-but you’ll pay a premium price for these-but it may be worth it for the ambience. You’ll have to decide. Overall a good experience; not sure we’ll go back. And please, why are you charging $5.00 to valet your car (told several times does not include tip) to people that just dropped a lot of money dining? Not hitting the mark I think you’re striving for. Not classy at all.

About the restaurant
Tavern & Grocery offers modern interpretations of classically inspired dishes served in a modern update of a restored early 1800's boarding house. The building was a grocery from its inception in 1820 all the way until 1973, and was also a tavern, boarding house, and restaurant along the way. Ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible, with much of our produce grown on our own farm during the spring, summer, and fall. We even have our own flock of laying hens and use as many of our own eggs as possible! Saturday and Sunday brunch is a must with both classic brunch dishes as well as creative re-interpretations, and, of course, the perfect bloody mary. Our bar focuses on creative craft and classic cocktails, as well as wine, serving the best examples of many varieties with a large selection of wines offered by the glass. We have a very nice selection of beer, both on tap and in bottle, that even the most discerning will love.

The William and Henry steak house is an outstanding restaraunt in Lynchburg. The atmosphere is elegant, I particularly liked the plush throw pillows at our booth. The service was on-point, with an attentive waitstaff. Food was amazing. The wedge salad was literally the best I have had, perfectly chilled and with a delicious house blue. I knew it was going to ne a good meal from the salad on. Everything was presented quite nicely, with a flair for visual stunnery. Management stopped by to check on us during our meal. Dessert was above-and-beyond. I got creme brulee and it was unbelievably good. The place is nice. Very nice. The prices are commensurate with what you would expect from food and service of that caliber. I live in Lynchburg and will definitely go back, in fact I am looking forward to the menu items I will try when I do. But regardless of whether you are a resident or just passing through, if you want a nice, upscale dining experience, this is it!

About the restaurant
Le Yaca began in a tiny, country village(Courchevel)in the French Alps in 1964.Daniele Bourderau & Gerard decided that it would be fun to open a small restaurant. When friends learned of their plans they told the hopeful restaurateurs that they were crazy to think that people would drive 8 kilometers on a winding, icy road for dinner. Daniele and Gerard hesitated for 3 months and then decided: “yaca le faire,” a contraction of the French phrase “ il n’y a qu’a le faire” which basically means “let’s do it.” They called the restaurant Le Yaca as a gag. But the name caught on with customers, who were amused by the pun and contributed to the restaurant’s lore by inventing “yaca-isms ” of their own: yaca y aller (let’s go). Daniele came to the United States & opened Le Yaca in Williamsburg. Daniel Abid bought le Yaca in 2001. Daniel worked and trained in such prestigious places as “Le Pre Catelan” and “Lenotre” in Paris; “L’Amandier” and “Roger Verge; and to top it all off “Alain D
