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 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.
Visited for brunch and was disappointed in the brunch menu. There were out of fried tomotoe BLT! So did the crab cakes benny which was very good. Just not a lot of options that did not include eggs. Two of table ordered the chicken salad croissant and it was just that no lettuce or tomato even though it said it came with it. Service was just ok. Loved the decor and would like to try dinner next time. The place is nice and hope they improve the brunch options!
A very special delight. The food and service were both outstanding. This was our first visit and it won't be our last. John the owner was watching over things, as was Nancy, the manager. Ashley ,our server, was a vivacious and energetic young lady. I guess you would say we were overwhelmed that a small town like Lewisburg has such a restaurant gem like the Livery.
traveling from Kentucky and ended up at the livery for our Anniversary dinner. Hands down one of the best meals we have had in years. Service was spot on and the place is just charming. We had the halibut which was cooked to perfection but the lobster risotto was amazing. Such a hidden gem. Highly recommend. Just wish we lived closer!
Went for Sunday Bunch. I can't recall a better Sunday meal. The pancakes are amazing. Bourbon glazed pork belly was yummy! We were a retirement party of 8 and everyone loved their food. Corn beef hash is all homemade. Perfectly cooked sunny side egg up on top added to the creamy texture. Eggs Benedict has southern shaved ham on them. The cured salt flavor went well with the hollandaise. They offer some nice lunch options too. Burgers, egg salad sandwich with smoked salmon, fried green tomato BLT are among the selections.
3rd time I've been there and it wasn't like prior experiences. I think they changed supplier for beef. It was not worth the price at all.
They also seemed to be "off" in other ways. No welcome at all when arriving. Of course that may sound petty but it is unusual for a pricey restaurant and again not like the other visits. I guess if I'm going to spend $200 for dinner for 2, then I also expect some common courtesy.
Great overall dining experience. Great atmosphere for quiet date conversation . Lovely wine list and local craft beers . Food was ridiculously delicious and very well portioned. A bit pricey , but for the quality of food well worth it . Will definitely be returning for another meal soon.
We recently celebrated our son's birthday with a dinner here. The decor was warm and welcoming and the fire was a nice touch on a chilly evening. My mint julips, was spectacular with fresh mulled mint. Our appetizers were fabulous, oysters, mussels and lobster rissoto were fixed to perfection and we would definitely order them again. My special entree of halibut was cooked perfectly but lacked seasoning, but my son's expresso rubbed steak was amazing. Definitely save room for the desserts and be daring. We tried the lavender, honey cheesecake and was amazed at the flavour blend which was not too sweet and not too floral. This place is definitely worth the trip and we are anxious to come back for quail or venison.
The menu was fairly limited and just as we had decided on the braised short ribs, our server came back and told us that they were out of short ribs. My husband chose the meatloaf and I selected the chicken risotto. The meatloaf was dry and just fair. The mashed potatoes and peas and carrots sides were good. And my dish was OK -not great. I didn't care for the breading on the chicken. The risotto was excellent. We had the sampler dessert trio. The ice cream was very good and the lemon curd tartlettes were really yummy. We will visit again when in the area to try other dishes.
Our group of six had a very mixed experience for dinner recently. There were only a few other tables in use but our server, although very friendly, was not very good. Bread came late, wine hardly ever refilled, plates not cleared once a person was done, not fully informed about the menu items. A guest having short rib dish was happy, as was the guest who had the lobster risotto. However, they had what they call Thomas Keller tomahawk lamb chops for $60. Two of us ordered that and were very disappointed. What came was one medium sized, not very thick chop and one of what I would call a shoulder type cut that was extremely fatty. We complained and they took a token amount off bill and offered dessert (we didn't want any dessert), but that was the offer. This misrepresentation made us unhappy that we chose this place.
My husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and expected a cozy and classy atmosphere. While the outside dining was nice, it was actually the owner and her "group" that presented the most distraction with loud talking and constant conversation between themselves about the menu and adjustments. Their conversation clearly should have been in a private setting and not where the customers would feel imposed upon. The food was average and overpriced. We did, in fact, have a fantastic waitress!
Wonderful experience. The food was marvelous. Our server, Annie, was very nice and extremely helpful with the menu. All of her suggestions were spot on. The atmosphere was very nice and pleasant. The dining area was noisy, but not to the point of distraction. Menu was not overly pricey. Considering the quality of the food, it was a real value. Overall, a very nice dining experience. We went there for my wife's 40th birthday and she was very pleased. We can't wait to visit again.
A nice meal before attending a show at Carnegie Hall. The ambience was cozy and the restaurant was about 3/4 full. The hostess was not very personable but our waitress was kind and attentive. The food was good, if not slightly overpriced. I would recommend the Livery Tavern to others and we will surely go back again.
