The Halfway House, established in 1760 offers a unique and historic dining experience in our area. Historically, it served as a stopping point for weary travelers between the cities of Richmond and Petersburg, and it also served as the headquarters for Union Major General Benjamin F. Butler during the Civil War. The kitchen is located in a separate building and the dining room is located in the basement area; a cozy, warm colonial tavern with fireplaces, low ceilings, brick walls and wooden furniture. A favorite destination for both locals and visitors alike, The Halfway House is a fine dining restaurant where guests enjoy classic dishes by candlelight to include their specialty of a petite filet mignon served alongside a Chesapeake crab cake or jumbo blue water fried shrimp, Lobster Tail, and Rack of Lamb. Whether you are seeking to celebrate a special occasion or simply enjoy a unique Virginia experience, The Halfway House can offer you both. Upstairs in the house, there are also two rooms that are available for private parties and dinners.
