Best dinner in Blacksburg, VA?

We will be overnight at Blacksburg. Suggestions for the best dinner. Money no object. Love local vendors and any cuisine is fine.

    1. Blacksburg is not a restaurant mecca. If you love local vendors, I suggest Gillie's. It's a pescatarian place (they also do a FABULOUS breakfast). There really aren't any high end places in B'burg. A solid dinner can be had at Poor Billy's (seafood and sushi) as well.

        We have been to Gillie's several times when visiting Blacksburg or Radford.

        On Thursday night we had a nice dinner - crawfish cakes and cajun tofu - and the best pie ever! Raspberry cream pie - a light mousse-like raspberry cream with many pieces of raspberry, delicious crust and crunchy crumb topping. A huge slice for less than $4.

      2. Take Prices Fork Rd. 12 miles from Blacksburg to Radford and get a great steak or seafood at The River Co. Restaurant and Brewery.

        The River Co. Restaurant and Brewery @ 6633 Viscoe Road, Radford, VA 540 - 633 - 3940.

        It's 90 miles to Chilhowie but one of the top restaurants in the State of VA is Town
        House at Exit 35 off I 81. Stop by if you have a chance. It's open Tuesday/Saturday for dinner only. You won't regret it.

        Town House Restauant @ 132 East Main Street, Chilhowie, VA 276 - 646 - 8787.
