Located ½ mile below Jefferson’s Monticello, Michie Tavern accommodated travelers with food, drink and lodging more than 200 years ago. Today, visitors experience the Tavern’s past through a historical journey which recreates 18th-century tavern life. Servers in period attire offer bountiful Colonial Midday Fare. The rustic restaurant setting renders a lunch dining experience rich in southern culture and hospitality for families to enjoy. Get a taste of the 18th-century as we feature a buffet of southern fried chicken, marinated baked chicken, hickory-smoked pork barbecue, stewed tomatoes, black-eyed peas, buttermilk biscuits and so much more.

1784 Pub

 In the Spring of 2019, you will be able to enjoy your favorite beverage in the 1784 Pub here at Michie Tavern. We are making modifications to connect the oldest section of the Tavern to our existing dining room; renovations began January 2, 2019. Walls are being exposed that haven’t seen daylight in many years! This expansion will not alter our normal dining operation. As our guests enjoy Virginia wine, brews or hard cider in the oldest section of Michie Tavern, a true 18th-century atmosphere will exist.  We will enhance the experience through education of not only our story but also the evolution of Virginia’s wine, beer and cider industry.
