About The Livery Tavern
Our newest restaurant, The Livery Tavern, is a very masculine interpretation of a mid-1800’s tavern, with an open beamed ceiling and a generous use of natural materials and earth tones both inside and out. The Livery has a full bar, privacy booth seating, outdoor patio seating and an extensive wine and port list. Our menu is a reflection of this same interpretation, with dishes including grilled venison, quail, lamb and local beef cuts like 2 inch bone-in rib eyes. The Livery is also fashioned with a unique military motif to honor our father Major General John B. Hirt USMC, who passed away earlier this year. You’ll find these military influences in our logo and other decorative treatments inside the restaurant.

The Livery Tavern Ratings and Reviews
We had never been here but chose this restaurant for our anniversary. The restaurant was beautiful, the service was good and the food was ok. There were only 4 booths and one table occupied but I could see this as being a very noisy restaurant if there were more people. There was a little girl there who kept going to the booth behind us to play games, not what we expected in a place like this. Then we had to listen to the musician for half an hour doing restaurant reviews of Chsrleston SC with the couple in the booth in front of us. Not a good place for a quiet dinner but ok for a lively evening I suppose.
Absolutely charming little restaurant in the heart of downtown Lewisburg. Great food and a wonderful, affordable alternative for dinner if you're looking to get off resort from The Greenbrier. Food was flavorful, interesting mix of ingredients, lovely presentation, and generally better than at many restaurants in big cities. Our server was very nice, though seemed a bit inexperienced and was a tad slow and didn't anticipate regular things (such as offering refills without being asked for water and tea). Highly recommend, and it was truly wonderful!
Every bite was "close-your-mouth-and-savour-a-little-piece-of-Heaven" awesome! Smoked duck, filet, goat cheese ice cream, exceptional wine! Even with the two hour drive from central Virginia, the comfortable, cozy, romantic atmosphere and exceptional service made The Livery Tavern our permanent anniversary dinner choice for years to come!
Visited Lewisburg a couple of months ago and everything was exceptional. This time some items were great and others so so. Last time the ribeye was exceptional, this time it was a very fair cut of beef. The Brussel sprouts and corn sides were 5 star last time. I’d give those sides a 3 Star this visit. Service was great, as always.
Everything recently written now Yelp is true, this place is a true gem. Outstanding wine list, specials that change daily and are based on what is seasonal and available from local sources. One OMG tip, is don't leave without sampling the desserts. I know several top restaurants that fail to offer desserts as imaginative and as well executed as the wizards in this kitchen. The current hot item is sweet potato cheesecake with pumpkin whip. Holy smokes, it is Fall on the palette! The Livery Tavern is a destination restaurant.
Our server Annie was awesome. Quite knowledgeable about the menu & wines and she checked in with us often without being annoying. The appetizers (baked oysters & pork belly were very good however they could have been warmer) mentioned this to Annie and she offered to replace or heat up but we declined as the flavor was still there and food temperature was tolerable. The main entrees of crab cakes & lamb were outstanding and came out piping hot. Presentation & flavor were excellent, my pictures do not do it justice. Wine selection was awesome. We were to full to eat desserts in house so we brought the trio special home and ate it later that evening and we were not as impressed with those desserts after having such an excellent meal. We will however come back again as the food was so amazing. On another note, the cleanliness of the restaurant was unbelievable. could not believe I couldn't find a speck of dust, not even on the flagstone façade.
Whenever we are in Lewisburg, my husband and I usually have dinner at The Livery. The food is always good and I love their Caeser Salad with Shaved Brussel sprouts. Being gluten free they are always good about preparing most options on the menu for me specially for dietary needs. Love their lamb chops and trout.
We enjoy eating at The Livery whenever visiting Lewisburg. As usual, we were not disappointed. Upon arrival we were greeted by the sight of 3 tables of 8-10. We were concerned about how this might effect the service and noise level. Our server approached the table immediately and our drink orders were delivered quickly. Our orders were taken promptly and food delivered promptly and hot. I ordered the chicken dish which had a light, crunchy breading and delightfully moist chicken. My husband ordered the crab cakes which he stated were excellently prepared and very tasty. Our usual excellent experience at The Livery.
Dorian was our server. She was kind, helpful and just a wonderful person to be in the presence of. The food came out fast and delicious. Great drinks and a fantastic outdoor dining experience. We were celebrating the commissioning of the West Virginia State Fair. This was a classy yet budget friendly place to celebrate. I wold recommend it greatly.
We visited the Livery Tavern for a business meeting, with a total of four people in our party. We chose to sit on the outdoor patio which was very pleasant and quieter than we expected. The service was great, and the food was delicious. I personally had the filet, which was cooked to perfection, while two of our party had the rib eye, which both said it was one of the best they ever had, and also cooked as requested. The side portions were a little on the lean side, but the main portion more than made up for it. I would highly recommend the Livery Tavern.
Best service in town!! We were able to dine outside underneath a beautiful maple tree and The food was delicious!
The lobster was cooked to perfection and my salad was so fresh!
I would absolutely love to have the recipe for the lemon dressing! Light and delectable!
We would like to thank all of the staff for their attentiveness and going over and beyond with the service they provided!
Definitely stop here
Warmly welcomed by Nancy as soon as we opened the door and promptly seated. Fun ambience with live music on the Saturday evening reservation we had at 830. Ask for Chris in advance, by far one of the most knowledgeable servers I've met in 30+ years of dining out. Unfortunately, he's leaving at the end of the summer to complete his Masters degree. The Caesar salad is to die for, and the oysters small to medium and yummy. The ribeye steak is 80% lean without sacrificing flavour and the salmon is very generous in portion size, but cooked to perfection. The roasted brussel sprouts with bacon chunks is a mandatory side for any entree, and the Sivas Pinot Noir from Sonoma recommended by Chris was a perfect compliment to the petite filet ordered by my guests. Too full for dessert, but the enticing bar in front of the music, abutting the quaint outdoor patio overlooking the town makes this a mandatory stop if interested in fine dining in Lewisburg, which promotes local farm to table produce.
The Livery is a great addition to Lewisburg's food scene. Service was impeccable and the food was beyond excellent. We were lucky enough to get an outside table and there is no better location to enjoy a relaxing meal and some interesting adult beverages than this location. Highly, highly recommended.
