    Meander Inn: Like Private Dining

    by von.otter Updated Dec 2, 2009

    First of all, this restaurant is not in Orange, VA; it is in Locust Dale, VA, about a 20-minute drive from Orange.

    Reservations are required for the five-course dinner menu at $65 per person.

    You feel as if you have a private dining room to yourself.

    The service is excellent. The food is superb. The atmosphere is comfortable.

    This is a special occasion restaurant. The only other couple dining that night was celebrating a wedding anniversary. Find a reason to visit!

    Favorite Dish: The Bête Noir, a chocolate mousse (see photo #4) dessert, was sinfully rich.

    Foti’s: Best Food in the Piedmont

    by von.otter Updated Nov 27, 2009

    First of all, this restaurant is not in Orange; it is in Culpeper, a short drive north of Orange.

    This was such a good restaurant; it was the best meal of our 10 day DC/VA trip. Although I checked of the ‘Italian’ spot for the type of food; it is really a broad Mediterranean menu. The owner/chef is of Greek ancestry; he has used many Greek influences to the menu.

    The night was slow; we were the only dinners in the place! The chef/owner, Frank Foti, came out to chat with us. He was SO nice.

    Favorite Dish: Oven Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese Tower with Pickled Mushrooms, Granny Smith Apples and Olive Oil Fried Walnuts — heavenly.

    Roasted Banana Ice Cream with Walnut Lace Cookies — yummy.

    It’s About Thyme: Great Food, HUGE Portions

    by von.otter Written Nov 26, 2009

    First, this restaurant is not in Orange, it is in Culpeper, a short drive north of Orange.

    Come to It’s About Thyme with a healthy appetite. The serving portions are HUGE. I ordered a Greek salad; it was very good. It took me 30 to 45 minutes to eat it. When the portions are this big the food — the flavor and enjoying that flavor — gets lost.

    Restaurant Pomme: A Bit of France in Central Virginia

    by von.otter Updated Nov 26, 2009

    First: this restaurant is not in Orange, VA; it is in Gordonsville, VA a short drive south of Orange.

    Pomme, apple in French, is a very good place to eat. It is owned and operated by a French family, father cooking, son handling the front of the restaurant. Portions are healthy, the steak eaten by Tom was the size of a dinner plate.

    The Hornets Nest: BBQ

    by apbeaches Updated Apr 19, 2009

    Cozy neighborhood restaurant. Everyone seemed to know each other. Extensive menu, lunch specials. Felt clean The portions were huge but we weren't enthralled so we did not pack up our leftovers.

    Favorite Dish: We ate BBQ with fries and cole slaw. All we really tasted was salt, our meals were just soooo salty.

    Dairy Korner Restaurant: Lunch stop

    by grandmaR Updated Feb 19, 2008

    During the mid 80s, when we were driving back and forth between Leonardtown and Crozet, with horses in a horse trailer, we would usually stop here for lunch. We were avoiding the madness that was I-95 and the white knuckle driving there-on. We didn't take any photos in those days, and on subsequent times through this area I have had a problem getting a picture.

    The first picture is approaching from the south, and the restaurant is down in a depression on the near right side of the road. The restaurant sign is the little blue thing that is visible right under the yellow crosswalk sign. Photo 3 has a closer picture of the corner and the signs.

    Favorite Dish: We usually got hamburgers and some kind of ice cream or a pie. Good, wholesome down-home food but not fancy. They serve breakfast all day. Service was fast enough that we didn't have to leave the horses out in the trailer too long.

    Our other options would have been to get sandwiches at a gas station south of town, or stop at Pizza Hut. Going to the McDonalds or KFC would have meant going off the highway into the town of Orange, which is not something that one does with a horse trailer.
