Michie Tavern is located 1/2 mile below Jefferson’s Monticello. A bountiful Southern Midday Fare is served daily. Attentive servers will  take care of your every need. 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.

After lunch guests may enjoy browsing in our unique shops – all housed in distinct historic structures. The Tavern Shop and The General Store each provide a one-of-a-kind experience in addition to plentiful shopping opportunities.
