I'm heading up to Floyd, Virginia this weekend for a wedding. I understand Floyd is a very s-m-a-l-l town but I was wondering if is worth venturing out and if anyone had any suggestions as to what to do during my two and a half day stay.
If you are going to drive a few miles out of town up to the Blue Ridge Parkway--usually a nice trip this time of year-- I'd skip Chateau Morrissette and instead try Villa Appalachia... http://www.villaappalaccia.com/index.htm and if you're interested in quality beverages, continue on to Foggy Ridge Cider... http://www.foggyridgecider.com/ . Also, I haven't tried it, but some folks I know really like Mickey G's Bistro in Floyd.
Chateau Morrisette and Pine Tavern are just about your only two choices. The best choice is to drive 20 miles N to Christiansburg to Summit Restaurant. The BBQ and Farm House are also nice.
Chateau Morrisette @ 287 Winery Rd SW, Floyd, VA 540 -593 - 2865.
Pine Tavern Restaurant @ 611 Floyd Hwy N, Floyd, VA 540 - 745 - 4482.
Summit Restaurant @ 95 College St., Christiansburg, VA 540 - 382 - 7218.
Dude's Drive In @ 1505 Roanoke St., Christiansburg, VA 540 - 382 - 7901.
Due South BBQ @1465 Roanoke St., Christiansburg, VA 540 - 381 - 2922.
Farm House Food @ 285 Ridinger St., Christiansburg, VA 540 - 382 - 4253.

Uh Floyd has a lot more than two restaurants. Floyd used to be a little country town, but now it caters to yuppie Yankee artsy fartsy hippy types. That being said:
Oddfellas Cantina, Cafe Del Sol, Blue Ridge Restaurant, DJ's Drive In, Jim's Grill, Tuggles Gap Restaurant, El Charro Mexican Restaurant. That's all I can think of right now.

I think Cafe del Sol has set, and Tuggles Gap is up for sale. Dogtown Pizza has gone in the Cafe del Sol spot. Last time I went to Blue Ridge--admittedly a while back--it was not ready for chowhounds. Oddfellas has been, well, odd--very up and very down...I think you can find threads about it on this site. Definitely, though, try to make it for friday night at the Country Store. And the town in general also caters to southern-style artsy fartsy types, hippies of all sort, good ole boys and girls from the region, and pretty much everyone (for its size). I really admire it, but I don't live there and have no vested interest in the place.
