Celebrating over 250 years of elegance and congenial tradition, Crooked Run Tavern invites our guests on a truly historic experience.

The Experience: Since 1766, the forefathers of America dined here, warmed by our fire and illuminated by candlelight. Today we strive to keep that tradition alive by providing a welcoming atmosphere and serving dishes inspired by the local area and our colonial past.

Outdoor and Indoor Dining: We offer limited indoor dining in our historic parlor or private dining rooms.  We also offer outdoor dining on our back porch, fountain patio, or picnic tables on the Meander Lawn with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Whether celebrating a special event or just a night out with friends and family, Crooked Run Tavern offers a beautiful setting for a memorable evening. A sample menu can be found here and here.
