Dinner at The Whole Ox


Dinner at The Whole Ox is our showcase, taking the best of the fresh, quality ingredients we sell in the shop and presenting them in a simple casual dining environment. We try very hard to keep the whole experience comfortable, easy, and unadorned. We keep service as simple and un-stuffy as possible, keeping the focus on the food and having a good time.


Please call to reserve 540-724-1650.
Reservations for tables available from 5:30pm to 8:30pm. Walk-ins welcome to the bar.

As we continue to get more popular, we encourage you to make reservations 3-7 days in advance.

We know how annoying reservation policies can be, but with a limited amount of seating and a huge desire to make people happy, there are a few favors we ask of our guests:

  • We cannot guarantee a reservation for parties more than 15 minutes late, but we do our very best to seat you as soon as possible.
  • Your entire party must be present to be seated
  • Please understand that due to our small seating capacity, we may ask for the table back at the completion of your meal.


This June we revamped everything to bring our focus back to the best of what is local, seasonal, and farmed organically.

The menu changes each night, and we try to have the menu available by 5:00pm on the day of. Please be kind and know that we are human, and sometimes we are not able to get the menu online before we open for dinner service.

Please remember that you are dining in a butcher shop, and we do our best to use every part of the animal. We are not able to accommodate vegans or vegetarians for a full meal. While some starts and sides may be vegetable focused, it is safe to assume every dish is made in part with animals.
