Michie Tavern Charlottesville Reviews
Sep 22, 2007
Michie Tavern (pronounced "Mickey") was established in 1784 as a tavern, inn, and post house on the road from Charlottesville to Richmond. Michie Tavern still welcomes guests today as a restaurant and historic site.
The restaurant, known as The Ordinary, serves only lunch. The "Midday Fare" is fixed-price and seved buffet-style. Guests have a choice of Fried chicked and pulled pork barbeque along with mashed potatos, stewed tomatos, green beans, blackeye peas, cornbread, and biscuits. Beverages and dessert are extra. The food is Southern in style and is excellent! Luch at Michie Tavern is a must when visiting nearby Monticello and Ash Lawn-Highland!
Miche Tavern also offers tours of the original tavern given by Colonia-era costumed docents. (They may invite you to dance the Vrigina Reel after the tour!)
A gift shop and general store are also at Michie Tavern.
