Dining at Clifton Inn


Seasonal Cuisine to Tempt Your Palate

Each morning, our chef picks ingredients from Clifton’s organic vegetable and herb garden to highlight the superb offerings from the region’s best farmers and suppliers.  The result is a diverse selection of inspired dishes, perfectly orchestrated to showcase the best of the season.   Whether you choose from our chef’s delectable tasting menu, or make your own selections, it will be a celebration of flavors that have made dining at Clifton Inn a treasured favorite for our local and visiting guests.

Come by to unwind on the terrace with the perfect cocktail while taking in the picturesque setting of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Or, linger over a delicious dinner with an ideal wine from our renowned cellar. We look forward to making your visit truly memorable!  Our restaurant is open seven days a week, from 5:30pm – 9:00pm.  Call us at +1 (434)-971-1800 for reservations, or inquire about our Dining Offers!
