The restaurant just underwent a spiffing up and it shows very favorably. Also, after some initial skepticism about the new menu, they seem to have hit their stride. Even the deserts have improved again. In general, very please with the direction of this all ready favorite for us.
Needed a fish option as Valentine's Day main course
What a truly amazing time!!! Everything was perfect. We can’t wait to go back again!
Excellent food, wonderful service: do yourself a favor and make the trip to Thornton River Grille!
TRG was fine, but i have come to loathe Open table. I will NEVER use your service again. I have spent countless hours deleting your posts and trying to unsubscribe. Obviously unsuccessfully!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thornton River is a great restaurant with an excellent food.
Food was very good although a little pricey. Love the sperryville area but will stick to lunches from here on.
This restaurant is very good, but not quite up to the very high standards of the previous management. My wife’s buffalo was a bit over cooked but my butter squash ravioli was excellent. The wine pours are very generous and a great value. Service is prompt, courteous, and efficient.
the drink policy re Frances (the on-site bar) is ridiculous and also takes a long time. Restaurant nearly empty when we arrived took forever to get a glass of wine - and friend could not get a beer (carried in the store) because Frances did not stock it.
Whatever business arrangement is causing this kerfuffle it is unacceptable and losing TRG business. Like the restaurant very much - my friend who wanted the beer will never come back and was once a regular.
Neighborhood Gem! Absolutely perfect for a date night escape in Sperryville. The staff was friendly, accommodating and made NYE special.
Spent Christmas Eve at Thornton River and it was a special evening. Great food and ambiance.
This place used to be outstanding, but I think the quality has slipped a bit. Our food was good, but certainly far from special. I am not sure if this is because of the new ownership....
A pleasant suprise! Amazing quality food by a chef that clearly loves his craft and takes pride in his work. True farm to table experience. We will be back.
Had a nice meal the Rockish and pork belly appetizer are excellent.
The new menu is superb, offering mainly non-vegetarian options: beef, pork, lamb, shrimp, fish--with a consolation vegetarian offering for those who arrive in a Toyota Prius. There is an open kitchen attached to a small dining area. On good days there's outdoor dining on a second-story terrace. The wine list is satisfactorily diverse and reasonably priced, the beers are more interesting. Service is outstanding and personalized. Many of the better-heeled locals eat here, although there is some traffic from people using Route 211 to and from Shenandoah Park and Luray Caverns. Lots of free parking. We stay nearby on weekends, so this is a must-visit place to have lunch, dinner, and brunch and to entertain visitors but, even if you live at a distance, it is worth the schlep.
Really enjoyed the new menu selections and wine list changes. We did miss the fried goat cheese with chutney and hope it comes back.
We had a super-wonderful experience! Our server was warm and friendly, the selection of beer and wine was lovely and the food was great.
One of the best restaurants we have ever been too. Fantastic in every way. We go back as often as possible. Don't pass it by.
All four of us had excellent meals, all different. The Grille has kicked it up a notch or two!
TRG continues to have quality meals at a reasonable price. The servers are always professional and attentive. You can't beat dining in the beauty of Rappahannock County!
