Aberdeen Barn has been around forever, and many of those working there have done so for decades. Locals say, though, that there are better steaks in town, and for less than the high prices charged here. Downtown Grill, for example. My recent prime rib had...More

Thia is our favorite restaurant in Charlottesville. They offer a great bar and wonderful steaks. The food is very good and the deserts are really tasty. It is located close to the hotela and campus.

Food was good, nothing more. The place itself is dated, too dark and kind of seedy. Overall too expensive for what you get. Not planning on ever going back.

It's like stepping back in time. Great steaks and service. Good selections of beer and bourbon. A little pricey, and worth every dime. Piano player in the bar made our night.
