My husband and family LOVE Fardowners. Our only problem is that we like their hamburgers and red pepper/gouda soup so much, we don't try anything else.  They are always so kind and friendly and helpful.  It has been a real treat to go there, and we hope that we can return someday. Meanwhile, we have enjoyed ordering takeout.

Still as good as they were 10 years ago. I've been a loyal patron for a long time and they haven't missed a beat. The food is always good, the value better and the atmosphere great. Their Cuban, Hippie Wings and Meatloaf sandwich are 10 out of 10.

Everything on the Menu is Outstanding
I have eaten here for Brunch and Dinner a few times and have been impressed everytime. I love the Fardowner's Bowl and Bloody Mary for Brunch and the WIngs and Fardowner Burger for Dinner. The Bloody Mary is an event unto itself.

Grabbed dinner here during the COVID pandemic. It was so easy working with them! I had never been to the area and was literally stopping through for the night during a cross country move. We called in our order and it was ready just as we arrived in town! It was delicious, and hit the  spot! To-go cocktail was on point!

Consistently delivers great food at bargain prices. The beer selection is outstanding and the service is super friendly. A real neighborhood vibe with a “no one is a stranger” attitude by the management and waitstaff. Expect a wait on the weekends.

Great cozy space! Did Sunday brunch. Food was seasoned good and good quality. Busy morning so might be why food wasn't "piping hot". Would eat here again. Appreciated the owner visiting the tables and interacting with the patrons!!

Fardowners is a great Crozet icon to grab lunch, dinner, or a Sunday brunch. They don’t take reservations, so be prepared for a short wait during busy times. If you’re waiting, check out the nearby coffee shop called Mudhouse for a snack. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the food is delicious. Be sure to explore the rotating ... read more

This place was very surprising. It was pretty crowded and it's small. But it is worth the wait. Plus there mimosas are sooooooooo good! They have a lot to offer. The food we got was very tasty and fresh. I would have loved some more seasoning on the potatoes but they were still pretty good. We will definitely be back to try more!

I swear, everything I’ve tried is sooo good! It’s hard to break away from my favorite dishes (like the BLT on a pretzel roll) but when I do I’m delighted as well. Wish they could expand the space to meet demand!
