Located a mile from the site of Peter Jefferson’s Albemarle County estate, our restaurant takes its name from Shadwell, the birthplace of Thomas Jefferson.
We serve quality food, made with fresh, local ingredients, at a reasonable price. We want everyone to feel welcome and comfortable at Shadwells. Our goal is to serve delicious, local and regional fare in a warm and friendly atmosphere. We are excited to be able to bring this great combination to our community.
We take pride in our reputation as the go-to restaurant in Charlottesville for authentic, Chesapeake Bay-inspired seafood. We hand cut our steaks in-house to bring exceptional, aged beef to those who appreciate a tender, juicy steak. Using seasonal and distinctive ingredients we bring unique, flavorful special dishes to our guests on a bi-weelkly basis.
