We visited this place last Friday evening with a group of friends who had been here before. It was my partner and I's first visit. I can honestly say we will return again! We absolutely loved the atmosphere, the service was prompt, and I felt...More

I like this place but would caution that it sometimes has some pretty drunk people round about 10/11 pm on the weekends. Services varies; bartender is good; waitstaff mixed. I have been served promptly and other times slowly. Burger okay; nachos not bad; carrot cake...More

Typical pub atmosphere. Food is good, but not remarkably so. Wide variety of beers. Parking is available across the street.

This place had stellar service! We were greeted & seated right away at the only table that was still available. The waitress introduced herself & her "trainee" waiter - both were fun & professional. The place was clearly a locals place in a small town,...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.
