Terrific meal and service. Creative menu and excellent quality ingredients without being drowned in oil! Delicious vegan options which we really appreciated. Server was very attentive but left us to enjoy our dishes. A little loud for us on the bar side but we got a reservation at the last minute so can’t complain.

About the restaurant
419 West was opened to the public in May of 2002 by Roger Neel Jr. and Al Pollard, the same operators that started Corned Beef and Company and Frankie Rowland's Steak House. The building was remodeled to the current state with the addition of a perfect dome in the middle of the dining room, a hand built mahogany bar, two private dining rooms, and a state of the art "open" kitchen. The kitchen features a wood burning oven for our pizzas, and a charcoal grill seasoned with hickory chips, for our ½ Pound Certified Angus Beef hamburgers and St Louis Style Ribs.

The style of food is considered American with slight influences from the around the world and all over the United States. Whether you would like a multi course sit down dinner or are just stopping in for a hamburger or a pizza, we have menu items to suit your wants or needs. We would love the opportunity to serve you, so stop by to try one of our simple yet elegant dishes.

The Saturday dinner was divine, as always! The Maitre'd was amazing! Such exquisite attention to detail and to every patron! He is a treasure and Hotel Roanoke is blessed to have him! He sets the tone for the evening, and continues to monitor entire room while giving each guest his personal attention without being intrusive. The dinner itself was delicious as always! The prime rib and the Bananas Foster were both delicious! Such an enjoyable total experience here vs just a dinner out! From start to finish it was lovely! The Jazz trio were great , as always, playing a diverse repertoire for all to enjoy but not so loud as to make it difficult to hear your dinner partner. Played incredibly well, and dancing just adds to the fabulous evening! We will be back again and again, and enjoyed the very diverse Sunday buffet the next morning, as well! Be sure to go into the 2nd room near the back of the larger room for some truly delightful choices! Yum!!

About the restaurant
A favorite Southwest Virginia landmark, The Farmhouse Restaurant has served the New River Valley since 1963. The authentic farm house, originally part of the Ridinger Estate, was build in the 1800's.

In the early 1970's, an old train caboose was added to provide a unique dining area. During the past decade, a rustic lounge, additional dinner seats, and a spacious 250-seat Banquet Facility have added to the charm of The Farmhouse.
