The food was delicious and the service was wonderful, as always!! A wonderful place to celebrate the coming holidays with fellow colleagues!
This was our 2nd trip to Preston's, this time to celebrate my wife's birthday. We has an outstanding meal. My wife opted for a salad and 2 appetizers. The "Fruits and Shoots" salad was a delicious and unique combination of citrus fruit, micro greens and beets all nicely dressed. Her 1st appetizer was a memorable pear and brie tart. The crust was incredibly light and flaky. Her other appetizer was the Cabernet braised beef short rib - tender, savory and well complemented by a kale slaw and creamed fresh corn. My meal was excellent as well. I started with the Chesapeake Bay crab crepe. it was a tender treat of crab, spinach and chunks of ham complemented with a nice Hollandaise and a balsamic-curry reduction. We finished off the meal by sharing their signature bread pudding - an amazing light on the inside, nicely crusted on the outside treat accompanied by a delicious Creme Anglaise sauce- and an impactful chocolate espresso ice cream. Service was friendly, efficient and courteous. All in all just a great meal!
Wonderful waitress, hostess. The food was very good.
Food, ambiance, and service were all great. Will definitely return to Preston's on our next trip to Blacksburg.
Food was excellent service wasn’t. Hard to get plates taken away or drinks filled. Would have liked a few more choices for children.
We were given a lovely table for two in the hall-way, which was quiet, and had windows for a lovely view.
The food was excellent, and the service friendly and efficient.
Very nice evening. Food was very good. Server was a little inexperienced. Overall a very nice dinner. Would definitely dine there again. Some plates such as oysters did not come with proper utensils.
Delicious as usual but the staff has totally changed. They still were very professional but we had come to know some of the prior staff that had worked there for years! We will return as always!
Great price for what was included! More vegetarian options would be nice, but overall, it was very good.
PhD in Food Science...best scallops I have ever eaten (not big scallops fan).
Fig and Foie stuffed Pork Tenderloin may be most delightful flavor combo I have experienced, and requested rare...perfectly cooked. Shrimp and Scallops Chowder, which is deconstruction and reduction of a chowder, was a perfectly delightful surprise. I have worked on 5 continents, and the meals I have enjoyed most are in (simple or fancy) establishments where the chef likes playing in his food...this one is 5 Smiles!
WHen at The Inn at Va Tech, best on site place to dine with family and friends
The food was okay but not great. Desserts were very good though! They sat us @ a table that needed vacuuming but they vacuumed right away. Also our server "disappeared" & I had to get the check from another server. Even though the hostess kept checking on us, I couldn't get her attention to get the check. Also our " disappeared" server came once to get refills but when we wanted them again, she was gone. But I definitely will come back ( since I live 5 minutes away.
Staff are very friendly and we are well taken cared of. Food is phenomenal! We went to a brunch (not even a dinner) and each course has full of flavor and fresh and delicious!!!
We will come back for dinner next time!!!
Decent breakfast buffet for about $10. Very convenient if you are staying at the Inn at VT. The omelette stand is very slow, and waiting can be annoying. There could be as many as 50 patrons at breakfast, and 1 omelette station. So could be 10 people in line at any given time.
Booked for Friday night dinner on a football weekend. Menu looked nice enough on line, but they never mentioned it would be a buffet until after we were seated. The food was very limited and mediocre at best for the price. $32.00 per person. Even the salad bar consisted of only lettuce, tomatoes and carrots . The service was extremely slow. We waited 20 minutes for a bottle of wine we ordered. The entire experience was disappointing!
Great dinner with our Hokie freshman after the game! Food was delicious, and the service was fine.
Celebrated our 50th Anniversary with our family at Preston's. Everything was excellent and gave us a truly memorable experience.
Went for breakfast. Above average hotel based breakfast buffet. The omelette station took 20 minutes! But it was good when it was finally my turn. Scrambled eggs on the buffet were quite dry, bacon too salty. Homefries were good since I caught it just as they came out of the kitchen. Fruit and yogurt bar has a lot of options. Has other items like biscuits and gravy, cereal, oatmeal, few pastries, bagels , bread, etc. so it is good value for about $12.50 and it is very convenient if you are staying at the Inn at VT. Staff is always polite, though service can be spotty at busy times. I would definitely go back, since even with some limitations, it is a nice enough breakfast.
Server was outstanding
This was the onsite restaurant at the Inn at Virginia Tech. So it was a convenient option, since we got there late afternoon. The variety of food and wine options was more than adequate. Menu is interesting too. But the food preparation was just not done right. Fried calamari appetizer came out soggy, not crispy. The flavor was OK. The two seafood entrees we ordered - the scallops and the fish of the day (Corvina), were both overcooked. The scallops ended up a little chewy, and the fish was dry. At close to $30 per entree, one expects more care with cooking. Presentation was nice, and the flavor wasn't bad. Desert of salted caramel ice cream was only average - too much air, and just sweet - no flavor.
The bread pudding desert was the only highlight of our meal. It was perfect in every way.
We were there for a fun brunch with our son & his family who live in Blacksburg. We had a great brunch! It's a beautiful hotel and restaurant! The cute bar is being renovated unfortunately! Preston's is excellent!
The food was very good & we throughly enjoyed the buffet. The staff was very attentive & friendly. My favorite dishes were the bread pudding & the potato salad with shrimp.
Breakfast was very good. The are undergoing renovations but they worked around it very well. The staff was wonderful.
Excellent service, delicious food, nice wine and beer selection, great desert. Reasonable pricing.
We were seated right away, and the server took our drink orders. There were plenty of choices on the Sunday brunch buffet, from biscuits and sausage gravy to prime rib and salmon. Also a large salad bar. No rush to get us out of there either. Good times with a college classmate from Paleolithic times.
Impressive Service, Friendly and engaging Staff - Haley's service was excellent; superb martinis! The Hand cut special Ribeye steak was done to perfection. The Spinach Salad was delightful. The Calamari appetizer was fresh and prepared with a tempura style. A wonderful celebration evening -- worthy of return visits!
Father’s Day Brunch (1:00 pm) was our first visit here as a family. Good variety, although the breakfast portion of the brunch buffet was rather picked over. Omelette Station was efficiently run and the food was excellent. The other entrees were all fresh and not overly seasoned. Pork, catfish, salmon and prime rib were a nice variety. Construction/renovation of the dining room took away from a bit of the usual ambience, but the live music (acoustic guitar) was a welcome addition. We look forward to a return visit when renovations are complete.
The brunch always has quite a variety of delicious dishes, including an omelette bar and dessert bar. The staff is competent and friendly. The guitarist duo played rock, bluegrass, etc., and soft enough to enjoy conversation. My family and I are return guests. Great restaurant!
when we arrived the matradee (said oh you will be sitting at table 20) and asked another person to seat us. Arriving at our table, our waiter was super. Then about 5 minutes later, I noticed another table to our right was seated with African American people. Then about 5 minutes later another family with African Americans were seated to our right. This was all done with the tables in the back of the room, and there were EMPTY tables closer to the food. When I was coming back from getting some food from the buffet. I noticed all the white people were seated up close and the black families were in the back. We are African American. I am not sure why she did this but it was quite notable, because later when I said it out loud my daughter(21) noticed it too. Please feel free to call me 276-620-6447
The graduation brunch food was cold and definitely not worth the price for the limited food options and quality.
Great graduation lunch!
Normally, it is fine. Because it was college graduation, it cost the 3,of us over $100. I took 8 of my TAs to brunch at Preston’s for $203 prior to tip. It is ridiculous to charge so much for a lessor buffet than a normal weekend at Prestons. We estimated it was $30-40 a plate, vs $12.95.
We had a great graduation day meal! Thanks you!
We ate at Preston's on Saturday of our son's graduation from VA Tech. The food selections were very good and plentiful and the service was very good. Downside was the hot food selection was just warm at best.
It was a good dinner. We were there for my son's Graduation. When the reservations were made we were never told it was a Buffet so we were quite surprised when we got there. We wanted something a bit more quaint than a buffet.
This was the graduation buffet. The large ballroom was pretty, brightly lit and festive. The food was such a let down. I left hungry and hardly ate anything. The carving station consisted of ONE choice: a dry pork loaf. There was no roast beef, no ham or anything else. On the rest of the buffet, the only delicacy was peel and eat shrimp. There was no lobster, no salmon or fish. There was a kind of spiced chicken loaf, some vegetable salads, noodle dishes, things like that. Even the dessert selection wasn't thrilling. It consisted of an assortment of pecan pie, petit fores, some baklava, strawberries & other fruit and marshmallows to dip in a chocolate fountain. The server did not check on the table very often and directed us to the coffee and tea station when I asked for coffee . It was all very blah and disappointing...especially for the $40 per person + added on tip price.
Went to Preston's after VT Graduation. Although I had thought it would be a sit-down menu service, we were pleasantly surprised that it was a buffet so they could accommodate many families. The food was very good with great variety. Everyone in our party loved the shrimp and grits and pork loin. They also had colossal shrimp on the salad bar as an appetizer. I would recommend Preston's as your post graduation dining experience.
The fish and meat were very dry. Vegetables were ok and the salads and desserts would be the only thing that was worth eating
Unfortunately no one at open table or the hotel told us that this was going to be a prefix buffet dinner in the ballroom which was not at all the type of experience we were looking for. So we were not hungry enough to eat the value that we spent. The food and service was very good but it was still extremely disappointI got.
