We visited here about 7 years ago for the first time and come back now several times a year. The staff and management could not be nicer. We love to attend the wine festivals in the summer and the wines are wonderful. Try them in the tasting room and buy a bottle to drink on the decks while you admire... More

We visited for Sunday brunch to celebrate our anniversary. We have lived in the area for several years and this is our first trip to this restaurant. My husband's comment was "you can book us a reservation here any time you like". We will definitely go back to try lunch and dinner.

Stopped in to chateau morrisette during a convertible ride through the Blue Ridge. Way above our expectations . The views are dramatic and the building lovely. Highlights were the Shrimp and Grits. At lunch for only $17.00 you get a nice serving of at least 6 shrimp, Tasso ham AND andouille sausage. The wild mushroom soup off the day and... More

Thank you for the very nice review and I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to Chateau Morrisette. Our restaurant menu changes seasonally to allow us to grow as much produce as possible. We also try to use local providers as much as possible. The Shrimp and Grits are one of our best sellers and tends to stay on the menu... More

Wonderful place for wine, but no longer a place to order Shrimp and Grits. After years of traveling to Chateau Morrisette for wine and a luncheon of shrimp and grits, this year cured us of wanting to return. The recipe changed (according to the hostess) and portions were mini. Don't look at the website picture because it is nothing like... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I'm sorry the Shrimp and Grits were not to your liking. The lunch portion is smaller than the dinner portion and priced accordingly ($17 at lunch and $27 at dinner). Shrimp and Grits as an entree has been off the menu for almost a year. It was just reintroduced this... More

My wife and I stopped by for lunch on the way from Blacksburg to Charlotte. Beautiful drive down route 8 through Floyd and along the BRP. We reserved through Open Table for a 1000 pt bump!

Thanks for visiting us. We hope you are able to come back soon and try more of our menu, which changes seasonally with the yield of our kitchen craft beds, estate garden, and local and regional farmer and grower community. Morrisette Farms sauces, dressings, salsas, and bruschetta are available in the Tasting Room and on our website. More

a delicious dinner with luscious views and excellent service, enjoyed by others just as well, in large celebratory groups or intimate settings. Nice to sample/enjoy different wines as courses are introduced. That she loved the chicken, I believe, contributed to her wanting a larger portion. Me? I loved my steak - they must've finished it with an oil or butter... More

Thankfully we made reservations ahead of time .. the service was spectacular (thanks Adam) .. the wine was fantastic. We each had different items from the menu and no complaints. The desserts were just ok. Love the fact that you don't have to pay an arm and leg for a great bottle of wine ! Would definitely recommend this place... More

This gem of a winery is off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Floyd, VA. about an hour+\- drive from Roanoke, VA. You can do a wine tasting or eat at the restaurant or both.
