About The Livery Tavern
Lewisburg, WV 24901
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.

Ate at the Livery when staying at the Greenbrier and all of their restaurants were full. This was probably a blessing as the food and service were excellent and probably at a better price point. We will definitely return here if we are in the area of Lewisburg again

Ever since we had our rehearsal dinner at The Livery in 2015 we always make sure to come back when we're in town. Good food, great drinks, friendly service and nice ambience, what more could you want!? I can't say enough good things about Nancy and her entire team.

I had dinner with my sons before the movie. Our server was great with a careful explanation of the menu and recommendations for each course. Our servings were hot, fresh and as advertised. We had a good time and will certainly return.

The special: a shrimp penne pasta dish was bland. The chicken dish had a sort of jellied sauce but was not very flavorful and luke-warm. Probably good place for steaks. Drinks and service were good but for the price I expected far better food.

Everything was great - David was a very entertaining and informative waiter.
The only problem with our food was temperatures - we didn't comment on it but when we left she commented that hers was not warm and neither was mine.

My 2 guest and I enjoyed all the dishes very much. The only down side was, I ordered the scallop special. When I received my bill the price shocked me! $50.00 for the scallops! Nowhere was the price shown, chalkboard or menu, I assumed it would be in the range of the other entrees. The owner apologized for the lack of information and gave me a bottle of wine. I highly recommend this restaurant, just be prepared for high prices!

If someone is in the Lewisburg, West Virginia area, STOP HERE!!! My wife and I have dined here on multiple occasions and have found everything on the menu outstanding. This last visit I had the soy-ginger salmon and it was one of the best salmon dishes I have EVER had.

Pre-theater dinner, convenient since it's only a block from Greenbrier Valley Theater. My wife and I chose to share a few small plates and split the remarkable Caesar salad. The risotto was exceptional, the Thai chicken/broccoli soup (daily special) was an eclectic surprise. This left us room for dessert: a warm apple bread pudding with vanilla ice cream that was delicious because it wasn't cloyingly sweet like bread pudding can sometimes be.
The only disappointment: we love oysters, so we ordered a half dozen raw AND the sampler platter. The mignonette and cocktail sauces were perfect complements; however, many of the oysters themselves were unusually small. The lively and personable waiter gave us a couple of extras, and we certainly appreciated the gesture.
The ambiance was cozy and warm--perfect for a brisk fall evening.

Great food and atmosphere. A little more space between tables for two would be good as conversations were easily overheard. Pay a little more but for our special occasion, it was well worth it and will return next year!

This is restaurant is a true gem in Lewisburg. The pork chops were amazing! I took a chance on the "Wolf Fish" and did not like it as much as the filet or the chops. The décor is a charming elegant/rustic feel. We look forward to our next visit.

We have dined at this resturant several times, unfortunately during the past year the service continues to decline. There were no more than 10 tables in use that evening and we still had poor service, it is as if there is no supervision, no one checked to see how we were doing or how the meal was. The food is above average, but somewhat overpriced. The resturant is noisy and it is difficult to have even quiet conversation unless you are in one a the booths. It will be while before we try it again.

The food was excellent. The service was terribly slow. Even though we were the only diners @ 6:00 pm. there were long periods between ordering, getting salads and then the entree and.....getting the check.. WE were late for the theater because of the slow service. No apology from our waiter.
Overpriced so we will probably not return.

Steaks were prepared wonderfully! Everything was seasoned to perfection and the chocolate mousse cake was to die for. Patty, our waitress, as well as everyone else was so polite and friendly. Definitely going back.

I wanted an over-the-top romantic evening with my lady, and that's exactly what we had. The food, the wine, the ambiance - it was all PERFECT. Our waiter, Chris, provided us with the most enjoyable, pleasant and professional service we could have possibly experienced. I say drop what you are doing, make your reservation, drive to Lewisburg, take your honey to The Livery, and live happily ever after.

Food was wonderful and great friendly service. I love that many of the entrees and desserts use fresh, local ingredients. Entree choices are creative but even a picky eater can find something they'll enjoy. One of the best finds of my West Virginia travels!

Very nice bar. Sofa and fireplace with chess set for cooler weather enjoyment. Beautiful decor and very nice gluten free dessert. Goat cheese ice cream a delicate jewel. Flowerless chocolate cake rich and enough for 4 esp if with ice cream. Will visit again.

We had heard how "impeccable" the service was... This was not our experience. Our server was fine but not great. Music from kitchen overpowered music in restaurant. Unfortunately, there were a lot of open tables BUT it took 45 minutes to get our salad and we had to ask for bread...
The food was good although menu was limited. We both wanted the special and not much else. The Cesar salad and cheesecake were amazing.

The French Goat is visited often by Lewisburg residents and should be on your list if you are visiting here.
The owner manages of the front of the house and is a welcoming host. The excellent food is served with flair by the competent and friendly wait-staff. We have dined there many times since thy opened and, once again, the French Goat lived up to our expectations.

Just had a burger but it was quite a burger! Just meat and gooey melted Swiss on a warm brioche bun but it was fabulous. Don't know when or if I ever had a burger this good. Husband had the Asian glazed short ribs which were pretty spicy but very good. Service was also excellent.

We had heard The Livery's prices were high, but did not expect them to be as high as they were. The sweet & sour shrimp appetizer was the best shrimp appetizer I have ever had, and well worth the $12. I would have still been pleased with that at $15.
The appetizer my wife had was worth its price, too, whatever it was -- can't remember.
The entrees were certainly good and well-presented, however, I would have had another one if the price had not been what I considered outlandish for a steak or prime rib.
I had a lamb dish. It tasted very good, but it just did not taste like lamb. With the way it was flavored, it could just as well have been beef pot roast.
That's just my take on it, from someone who maybe has a 1950s view of what prices ought to be, and from someone who had the good fortune of being exposed to one of the best cooks who ever lived, my grandmother. She kind of spoiled me for what I consider exceptionally good food. I'm constantly hearing people talk about how wonderful a restaurant is, when I think it's only average or a bit above.
Finally, I must give the service my highest praise -- it was impeccable!
