An smazing selection of bottled beer for a sandwich -pizza place. Taps are unremarkable, but you can have Founderís Breakfast Stout, Old Rasputin, or Fullerís ESB with lunch. Service is disorganized but friendly. Food is uneven but they try hard. Considering itís Blacksburg, and the little retail annex lets you pack almost any of their bottles into mixed 6-packs, it may offer a better selection per capita than anywhere on the East Coast.
Worst service ever. Showed up Saturday afternoon a little bit later than prime time for lunch. Place was busy, but not crazy. We sat at the bar, probably a mistake, but the guys to our left sat down after us and received their food before our order was placed with the cook. After 15 minutes our waitress took our drink orders. When we received our drinks she took our order. After 45 minutes I asked when we were going to get our food. She checked with the cook and she had not given the cook our food order. She told us that we could place our order or we could just go somewhere else. I asked if the six inche gyro was big, she said it was a lot, the six inch gyro is small but good (my friends food portions were much better). The waitress said she was new, she should get a diffrent job. Atmosphere was chill, but the paper towel dispenser in the mens room doesnít work. Draft selections were lacking, bottle selections was a little better. Received a free beer due to the mistake, but it was a two hour tour and they have a dedicated parking lot but, it is metered parking. The bottle shop was run much better. Good selection of Belgians and pretty american selection. Rate is for the bar not the bottle shop.
Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. Went to the bottleshop side first. Had I not just come from vintage cellar, I would have bought a good bit more. The selection in the bottleshop is pretty good, but when you go to the restaurant side, the tap list is fairly unimpressive, but the bottle list is nice. After taking a seat at the bar, it took fifteen minutes to even have our drink order taken. Then about ten minutes later our meal order was taken. 45 minutes later, the waitress comes to tell has she forgot to put our order in and that we could either wait it out, or go somewhere else. Given, she said she was new, but come on. By the time we got to eat, the place had pretty much emptied. We did get one free beer apiece, but the service was about as bad as could be. At least things appeared to be clean. One positive from the reastaurant side is that the food was quite good. I had the Greek spaghetti and it was delicious and was a pretty large serving.
My daughter and I came in here Memorial Day evening at 9 to have a beer and hear the blues Jam.
They had about 10-12 on tap. I had a local IPA that was new to me that wasnít bad at all. $3.50 pt for drafts.
My daughter had a Brooklyn Brown ale in bottles, they have a whole selection of them.
There are two parts to this place. There are two doors and at the back you can go from one side into the other.
The other side is a bottle shop with a decent selection that "hits most of the high spots" if not extensive enough to cover it all. The were open Memorial Day afternoon after Vintage cellar had closed at 4. Their 22ís of Sculpin were $9.50, Vintage Cellar had them $11.25.
The pizzas looked very good, id go back.
Restaurant / bar with a good beer selection, both taps and bottles. Next door is a good beer shop with singles, sixes, etc. as well. I have visited once for lunch and had excellent service and very good food. I would definitely visit again and sample more of the beers. Recommend to visit when in the area.
The Cellar is a staple in Blacksburg and a must for a beer and a meal. Great sandwiches and the beer selection really works for the town. If youíre in town visit Va Tech or for a football game, the Cellar is a great place to hang out and enjoy the afternoon/evening.
Fantastic Restaurant...probably the BEST in Blacksburg. Great atmosphere, very cozy! Food is fantastic, you canít beat the drink deals (Hammer Time 6-7 ANY pticher of beer 7 bucks!) Also, if you want to take a chance you can get a "Luck of the Draw" Beer for only $1!!!! Sometimes the beer sucks sometimes it is great (I have gotten Rogue before).
