Farm-to-Table Dining in Blacksburg

Preston’s Restaurant prides itself on offering regional and seasonal cuisine coming straight from the farms and seas of Virginia. From our Black Angus beef which is pasture-raised on the hills that surround Virginia Tech to our seafood caught in the Chesapeake Bay, we aim to cook with only the freshest ingredients. Our culinary team delights in providing our guests with delectable dishes that have a southern flare with classic inspiration.

The New Dining Experience

Our culinary team has created innovative dining options for groups of all sizes to ensure a healthy environment. Menus have been designed for increased levels of sanitation while maintaining the highest level of quality and excellent taste.

While the traditional restaurant dining experience is still possible with new, physically-distanced seating layouts, outdoor seating is also available on our Great Lawn patio. Additional processes have been put in place to limit contact with other guests, as well as between guests and staff.

And groups hosting meetings at The Inn can expect private dining experiences with customized menus and safe, individual packaging.
