Our newest restaurant, The Livery Tavern, is a very masculine interpretation of a mid-1800’s tavern, with an open beamed ceiling and a generous use of natural materials and earth tones both inside and out. The Livery has a full bar, privacy booth seating, outdoor patio seating and an extensive wine and port list. Our menu is a reflection of this same interpretation, with dishes including grilled venison, quail, lamb and local beef cuts like 2 inch bone-in rib eyes. The Livery is also fashioned with a unique military motif to honor our father Major General John B. Hirt USMC, who passed away earlier this year. You’ll find these military influences in our logo and other decorative treatments inside the restaurant.

I had made a reservation for Valentine's Day. When we arrived, the hostess had a small bare table in the very back corner set for us, despite there being multiple open tables that remained open throughout our dinner. This table actually blocked the booth along the wall slightly. We had requested a booth, but the booths were all full. When we asked the hostess about it after the meal she explained that everyone wanted the booths, and that basically we were not important enough customers to get one. Even so she could have given us a much better table than a small table stuck in the back corner. Having said this, the food was fabulous and the service excellent. When you charge the kind of prices they do (We spent $150 for two) one would think that you could at least get a decent table.

Love The Livery. The food is always excellent, we've never been disappointed. The service is appropriately attentive, the ambiance is understated elegance. The goat cheese ice cream is an unusual menu item, but is strongly recommended.

We were traveling and stopped for a night in Lewisburg, WV. What a surprise when we chose The Livery for dinner. Absolutely 1st class dining.
Everything was perfect. We sat at the bar and our server/bartender Jewell gave us outstanding service. Prompt, professional, and courteous.
And... the food was outstanding. If you’re passing through, you should not pass up this restaurant.

Visiting from out of town, my two besties and I looked on Open Table for a good place to dine. We were greeted by the owner’s sister. We knew it was going to be a good night when we discovered her quick dry wit. We were seated right away. Cocktails were unique and refreshing. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. Two of us ordered the rainbow trout. Wow!!! Incredibly wonderful yet simply made with crispy skin and a buerre blanc sauce, rice and broccoli. Salmon was the choice of the other guest. Wonderfully prepared with a blue cheese sauce.
We all remarked after dinner what a fantastic meal, beautifully prepared, and each of us made it out of there around $50, which included 2 cocktails each. Oh, and the fireplace was warm and inviting!!
We plan on visiting Lewisburg again and will not miss the Livery!

We love the livery. Was one of our first dates when me and my fiance got together. We always crave their Caesar salads. This time the menu wasn't very appealing to us. It was very cold to. Normally I don't get cold in places she does and I even had a hoodie on. They had a fire going but I feel like we will never visit in the winter months again. We had a good time still and our waitress was wonderful.

Very nice local restaurant with an interesting cabin like atmosphere. Cocktails and wine were very good. Food was average and high priced for the quality in my opinion. Very small crowd on the evening we went so the noise level was perfect for talking and enjoying the company of my dinner companion. Our waiter was fun and full of personality which is always enjoyable.

The resturant is nice. We have eaten there once in the past and had looked forward to our return. We made a reservation and returned for dinner this past Tuesday evening (1-8-2018).

We both ordered the chicken pot pie. It took quite awhile from the time we ordered until we were served. Once served we were very disappointed in the pot pie. It would have been better advertised on the menu as chicken soup. The consistency was such that it needed to be eaten with a spoon. Also the carrots were not done.

In addition the resturant was not crowded during the time we were there. Plenty of empty tables were available. Nevertheless, we were seated adjacent to two other parties. All conversations were loud enough that all could hear. Much to noisy given the fact that seating could have easily been more customer focused.

This was our second time dining at The Livery and we were looking forward to our meal based on our last delightful meal with them. We were celebrating with close family friends and wanted to dine somewhere special. We had a larger party (8 adults) and the service was terrible. We asked for bread and our server snapped at us stating bread was in the oven and it would be out soon. Once the bread basket was delivered for our large party, we asked if we could get a second basket and our server snapped again saying they only do one basket for a party our size. The chicken pot pie was more of a soup and the chicken was very tough and lacked seasoning. The Cesar salad was fair. The kitchen closed at 9 and by 8:30 all of the servers were clearing all empty tables in the restaurant, we felt very rushed while they rushed around clearing the rest of the dining room. While we were enjoying our entrees, servers cleared our salad forks mid meal. It was obvious our server wanted to be anywhere but work that evening. At one point a glass was broken by our server and glass ended up in one guests drink at our table, never did our server offer to replace drink--and that guest ended up cleaning up the majority of the mess after one server threw a napkin on our table. Entree prices are very high for Lewisburg. We will have to choose another restaurant next time we are in town.
