Food was very good, beer selection was great and the service was exceptional. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice restaurant to go to while in town visiting either of the schools.

My family ate our Easter dinner here. The atmosphere was very nice. The service was good and our meals were really delicious. We shared an appetizer of fried Brussels sprouts. They were surprisingly delicious. We ended our meal with pecan pie and carrot cheesecake. Both desserts were excellent.

The Southern Inn has everything you want for a fine dining experience. Pleasant atmosphere. Attentive staff that provides great service. A fine selection of wines and cocktails and most importantly good food. Everything we ordered from the appetizers, to the entrees and desserts were not only eye appealing but delicious.

If you are up for some really good comfort food, it is worth the drive to Lexington, Virginia for a visit to the Southern Inn. Lexington, is a great destination for history bluffs, nature walks and of course VMI (Virginia Military Institute) and Washington & Lee universities.
After you have worked up an appetite, start with one of the Inn's signature cocktails or a craft beer. The dinner menu is diverse and you can't go wrong with any of the menu items. The home made chowders were excellent and the appetizers looked interesting. For the main course, we had the fried chicken and meatloaf and both were moist. My wife had a complaint with the spice in the fried chicken, which seemed to result from a heavy hand in the preparation (note to kitchen: with spices, less is more). Desserts looked fantastic and the folks at the next table gave them a thumbs up. Great service, great food, good time.

a very nice restaurant with excellent food. I had the fried chicken with potatoes and vegetables. Deboned breast with a light batter. Not at all ordinary. The young lady who served us was very attentive and kind. We had pecan pie and ice cream for dessert. It was also very delicious. Would definitely enjoy eating here again.
