We had dinner here this week and it was really good. There are a lot of choices that one doesn't see online. Good wine and beer at a decent price. Excellent, friendly service.

This is a very small, "hole in the wall" bar/restaurant. Not much seating...but you MUST go here...our hamburgers were outstanding but the Hot Wings were actually HOT. If you are near here...and it's close to Charlottesville, make the drive over. You won't be disappointed.

We loved our visit to this unpretentious, easygoing spot. They clearly take both good food and good service seriously. WC greeted us warmly and we thoroughly enjoyed our chat with him. My Manhattan was smooth as silk, and we both loved our meals (veggie burger...More

Really good food, excellent value. Walking in you might think it's going to be just a busy bar food scene, and it is, but the menu includes amazing, gourmet meals along with the wings, burgers and you want it they have it. It's in downtown...More

Just how great this place is from the outside! They epitomize the word unpretentious! Walk in, sit down and have some of the best pub food you could ask for. Their secret weapon is the Mac-n-Cheese. It comes in a big bowl and will take...More

Food in plastic baskets lined with wax paper kind of place. I always want to love the food here, because I love a good dive, but it's ho-hum. I often review the menu again and again and nothing really appeals. I am not a big...More

At Fardowners, we provide quality pub fare & a welcoming casual atmosphere. Chef Mark Cosgrove sources local ingredients in season & our rotating selection of craft beer emphasizes Virginia breweries. Fardowners is a great place to take the family for dinner (our kids' Mac & Cheese is definitely the best around), or to come out with friends & enjoy our actively curated draft selection & live music on weekends.Fardowners restaurant takes its name from a group of Irish immigrants who labored for the Blue Ridge Railway Co. and helped construct four tunnels through the Blue Ridge mountains during the decade before the Civil War. Claudius Crozet’s remarkable feat of engineering took eight years and linked the eastern part of Virginia to the west. Opened to rail traffic in April of 1858, the railway was instrumental in putting the village of Crozet on the map. The old C&O Railroad depot can still be seen from the restaurant windows, across The Square on the other side of the tracks.
