Come on out to the Tavern on the Rail!  A unique and special dining establishment on Rt 618 in Fredericks Hall, 5.5 miles east of Mineral in Louisa County, Virginia.  The 1837 building, a Nationally Registered Historic Landmark, was restored by owner Melody Bowers.  The upstairs offers upscale yet relaxed dining.  The downstairs is welcoming and cozy for casual dining or a quick bite.  Reservations are recommended for Friday and Saturday nights. 

Enjoy the beauty of our 170 year old general store that has been restored for your dining experience in a rustic, yet elegant atmosphere.  Tavern On The Rail is located only minutes away from Lake Anna, numerous battlefields, and historic landmarks of the War Between The States, and Virginia wineries

Upscale Dining in a Casual Atmosphere

This is the place for your intimate get-away. White tablecloths and candles adorn each table in the upstairs dining room. But don’t let the elegant setting lead you astray: both formal and casual attire are equally at home here. Enjoy the eclectic decoration and especially the home cooked entrées. 
Check out the original store shelving loaded with antique dishes and radios, and other interesting memorabilia. The rest of the space is decorated with tasteful artwork and ceramic figures.
