Lunch in Charlottesville....?

Jump to last reply

Taking some friends on vacation - one day we will take them to Jefferson's Monticello. They have a couple of kids - one just in high school and interested in colleges, so thought we would stop near Univ. of Charlottesville for lunch.

We did consider Michie Tavern and the new Visitors Center at Monticello, but are familiar with both and that is not what we would prefer.

As scenic as Michie Tavern is by Monticello, the fare is more like a Golden Corral wannabe, so would like to find something interesting. Last time we did this trip (with other friends), we drove around looking at places near the university until we settled on something less than memorable.

So..would love some recommendations. Thoughts?

(btw - staying at Massanutten Resort, so suggestions along that route also would be good.)
