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.
