Established in 1728, our historic tavern welcomes Middleburg locals and travelers alike to enjoy hearty breakfasts, casual lunches and intimate candlelight dinners in the traditional Virginia style. Oak tables, handcrafted furnishings, stone fireplaces, hand-hewn ceiling beams and thick fieldstone walls create an intimate dining atmosphere any time of day. Our culinary team creates seasonal menus using ingredients indigenous to both Virginia and the South prepared with the time honored cooking techniques of smoking, braising, and roasting. The Tavern’s home-style dishes are simple yet genuine and feature many local ingredients sourced from area farms. The wine list boasts a diverse selection of domestic and imported vintages and show¬cases many wines from Virginia vineyards while the beer list features a rotating selection of craft beers by the bottle. Join us today for a bowl of our famous Virginia Peanut Soup, Southern Fried Chicken, or our signature Crab Cakes!

"I had heard wonderful things about this restaurant from friends, but had the chance to experience The Red Fox myself. A group of friends had dinner there and we enjoyed everything about it. The service friendly and attentive. We all ordered different salads and entrees and couldn't have been more pleased. The date and goat cheese salad was exceptional and I'm not usually a fan of dates. The duck was a huge hit, the fried chicken and crabcakes were as well. For dessert, we shared the vanilla crunch cake and the 5-layered chocolate cake. Everything was so good, we went back the next night for dinner as well. The menu isn't huge, but what they have is delicious. The second night, I had salmon and it wasn't as good as the crabcake entree. Overall, a lovely dining experience in Middleburg,"

"I've been to this restaurant before because it is super convenient to the Kennedy Center. They offer a $35 pre-theater 3 course meal, which is a great deal. Everyone is very friendly and the food is good. The portions are also generous. Definitely worth a visit when in the area."

Serving a menu of modern American classics in the heart of historic Old Town. Executive Chef Lisa Marie Frantz and The Majestic serves all-natural, hormone free steak, poultry, and seafood. At The Majestic Café we make the extra effort to support Virginia farms and local producers; we buy the best of what is available on the market, and source our products regionally whenever possible.

"It had been a while since I dined at The Majestic. In the past, I've always had a stellar experience so I decided to take a friend who was visiting from out of town. I almost decided against it knowing that she want focused on the cocktails and I know the cocktails at The Majestic aren't quite our normal style. Not seeing anything that moved her on the cocktail menu, she asked our server about a sweet and fruity cocktail. Her comment was that the cocktails were sophisticated and would fit in with a 50s themed party. Our server spoke with the bartender and made a suggestion of a French 75, which we both ordered. It was delicious and well-presented which started our dining experience off to a wonderful start. She ordered the veggie plate and I ordered ravioli, which we split. They were both outstanding. The food lived up to what I have had in the past. We shared dessert (not the coconut cake, which is legendary to me). It was something new for me and still delicious! All in all, I think she thoroughly enjoyed her night out. Our server was friendly and helpful. He had the right level of attentiveness without being intrusive."

"My friend and I went there for brunch because we wanted to try someplace new. Because of it's location on King Street, parking is tough. We ended up parking in a lot. My friend ordered the waffle with fruit and it came out well presented with warmed syrup. I ended up ordering two sides because nothing was really striking me from the main menu. I felt that for what I got, there wasn't good value. A small side of grits was $8 and the small portion of hashbrowns was $4. I eat out regularly for brunch and I've gone other places where $12 would buy eggs, meat, potatoes etc. The best thing going was the $3 mimosa. For what you get and for the difficult parking, I wouldn't make any special effort to eat brunch here again. I suppose if you are staying at the hotel, it's a good choice."

"I ended up changing my Open Table reservation 3 times trying to find just the right place to take an out of town friend that was staying further down M street. We ended up trying this place and we both were very happy with my choice. The restaurant is a little tight and thus it can be noisy and hard to hear, but the food was great. We shared 4 different plates, had a pitcher of sangria and shared dessert. I think our favorite plate was the shrimp. The sauce was amazing. Our warm chocolate dessert was light in texture but had an incredible depth of flavor. I am planning to return in two weeks for my birthday celebration with friends."
