convenient to Monticello; fried chicken is WONDERFUL; other food offerings, esp. vegetables, very good. Setting is comfortable; wait staff is very good. Just a bit pricey, however.

If you are in the area it is worth a visit to Michie Tavern for the fried chicken. The service is good too. But, it does feel a little like a tourist trap. We were glad we went after visiting Monticello, but I wouldn't go...More

We ate lunch at the Tavern after touring Monticello. I don't think they take reservations, but they meet you outside and take the number of your group. It was prime time for lunch and we were worried about getting seated. There is a small gift...More

A little pricey but this is an old old place 6 minutes from Monticello. We'll organized, get-you-through buffet. Fried chicken and veggies very good. They bring a tray around to reload. Our table wobbled. Our server crawled under the table and fixed it. Worth going.

They have cole slaw. You must pay for the full meal even if you only eat the cole slaw. It is $18 adults and $11 children plus dessert is extra.
