Don't pass up the opportunity to eat at The Virginian. Everything melts in your mouth and the staff is awesome.

The vault is my favorite table when eating here with my husband. I also like the window seats. The food is always wonderful and we always find ourselves wandering around the lobby of the hotel looking at the artwork and history.

Found this unique restaurant by accident. The ambiance is just wonderful and historic. Service was warm, friendly and good. Although a little pricey, the food was very, very good. Right next door is the historic bar/lounge, and had live good music. This hotel/bar/resturan is well...More
