Does the Goochland Restaurant have new owners?

As a guy who likes to eat, I was always on the lookout for a good spot to eat. After our family moved to Goochland Va it didn’t take long to find The Goochland Restaurant. It’s got a legitimate old-school cool that could only happen over decades of private ownership. Good food, friendly service, and legitimate “regulars” that come there every day. I found myself there almost daily and after a few months, I was invited to “the big table” as some in town have come to know it.

Sitting at the big table on a number of the quieter days the opportunity to purchase the restaurant was made. Each time the offer was declined as neither I nor any other member of my family had any restaurant experience. However, clearly, Millie saw something in my family I had not before so she persisted. After a few months and several meetings, a deal was made to purchase the building and the restaurant it contained. It was important to Millie that the building remained a Restaurant and one that continues a tradition that started over 70 years ago.

It’s hard to find a good place to eat. Even harder to find something local that’s not just another franchised chain. Our family has made it a mission to run this little restaurant as an extension of our own kitchen table. A place to meet, a place to laugh, and of course a place to eat good food at a fair price.

On May 5th, 2022, we closed on the property. We shut down for 48 hours to make some changes then reopened on May 7th, Goochland Day. This was a really neat day for us and I want to thank each and every one of our friends, many of whom traveled hours to spend time with us and support this new venture. 🥰
