Service was very slow. Waitress was not attentive to our needs. Needed to ask for water twice, and also twice for rolls. Dessert was served with NO silverware.
Food was bland & tasteless, could have used some spices. Dinner rolls were hard and crumbly.
Overall, the food was not worth the price. It was our first visit to Preston's and we were very disappointed.

We had a 'love'ly Valentines dinner at Preston's at the Inn at Virginia Tech. It started off a bit rocky - after waiting 15 minutes for our server to check in, we finally flagged down a server and found out that we had fallen 'between the cracks.' which was quickly remedied with complimentary beverages. As I surmised, one of the servers had gone home sick, and the flurry of activity was everyone else, including the manager, filling in on their busiest night of the year. The three-course dinner, complete with baby kale salad, palate-cleansing sorbet, perfectly cooked ribeye, tender monkfish, raspberry creme brulee and double chocolate cake was very tasty. Well played, Preston's!

Preston’s never disappoints. We dine there a few time per year and the fact that you can hold a conversation without speaking in a loud voice is especially nice. The menu has some unique items and the wait staff are always friendly, courteous and efficient. This would be a good place for a business meal when impressing the client is important.

The meal was a pleasure. The food, service, and ambiance are always good. We enjoyed the Santa Claus picture.

After going to the Inn several times for our Christmas work lunch we were disappointed this year. The food was mediocre, with only a couple dishes that were "good." The service was terrible. Being that our lunch fell on graduation weekend the staff was hurried and rude and literally trying to force us out as fast as possible. We had to ask for water and basic things.

Please, always include salmon in the menu. Provide oil and vinegar for the salad.

We enjoyed our meal.
The calamari appetizer was not so great.

The check-in part was extremely disorganized and needed more staff. Once seated our waitress was great! The buffets were kept replenished. Nice food selection for Thanksgiving buffet.

We enjoyed the excellent Thanksgiving buffet, good food and good service. Since my husband is on a mobility scooter, we particularly appreciated that the tables were not crowded together. Even with the large crowd, the flow was well managed and you did not have to wait in line. A very pleasant dining experience.

My husband and my parents went to Preston's for the Thanksgiving buffet. It was wonderful! There were lots of choices, the food was replaced constantly and was fresh, and the wait staff did a great job. Overall, great experience.

We ate Thanksgiving brunch buffet. Food was very good. The service was awful. We could not find anyone to bring us our check. We waited about 45-1 hour to pay. They were extremely short staffed.

We were in town for the VT/Pitt game and decided to do brunch for my wife's birthday. We made reservations and were seated promptly, but it took quite a while for the server to come over to take our drink order. The meal itself was very good, and the server stopped by several times to pick up dirty plates and bring more coffee. Unfortunately, when we were finished, our server disappeared again. After about ten minutes of waiting, we asked a different server for our check and were on our way. We've visited numerous times before and have always been pleased, and we were happy this time as well, but the service definitely left something to be desired on this trip.
