Harvest Table Restaurant


Restaurant Review of the Harvest Table Restaurant

Tucked away in the tiny town of Meadowview, Virginia is a wonderful farm-to-table restaurant that is appropriately named the Harvest Table Restaurant. Everything served at the restaurant is fresh, delicious, and truly local, from the vegetables and meats to the wine and beer. Even the seafood is regionally harvested from the Virginia and Carolina shores.

This past summer, Herb and I actually went on a tour of Steven Hopp’s (the owner’s) farm, which is one of the main suppliers to the restaurant. We will have to do a post on our farm tour in the future! As a quick note of interest, Steven Hopp is the husband of the well-known author Barbara Kingsolver!

The restaurant is fairly small, seating only about 50 people, which is perfect for the atmosphere. From almost any seat in the restaurant you can see partially into the kitchen and catch the eye of the friendly executive chef, Philip Newton, overseeing the kitchen and creating delicious dishes.

Warm rolls are served with delicious honey butter upon arrival. The menu changes often as the chef caters to whatever is seasonal and fresh from the farms. There are always fresh salads and an artisan pizza of the day available. One time my veggie pizza came with squash on it! Definitely unique and very tasty. Other main dishes include everything from meats and seafood to pasta dishes.  There are always several great desserts to choose from as well.

Herb and I have eaten at the Harvest Table several times, and we have never been disappointed. The staff are always friendly and knowledgeable, the atmosphere is inviting, and the food is simply amazing.

On our most recent visit, Herb brought his camera along to capture some of the deliciousness.

As an appetizer, we ordered the warm oven-roasted goat cheese dip served with focaccia toast, which is a favorite of ours.

For our entree, we split the  chicken carbonara, which is grilled chicken strips with penne pasta in a rich cream sauce with crispy bacon. Oh. My.


If you are looking for something flavorful and fresh, we definitely recommend a stop at the Harvest Table Restaurant in Meadowview, Virginia. It’s located just off Interstate 81, only a short drive from Emory and Henry College.
