Reservations

Reservations are required and brunches usually sell-out well in advance of the date.  Reservations are opened exactly three (3) months from the date that you wish to dine.  Should that reservation date fall on a Sunday, reservations will be taken on the following Monday.  

Reservation times are 10:30am, 11:00am, 1:00pm and 1:30pm.  Each reservation has a two-hour seating limit.  

Please call 804-649-4662 between 11am-7pm Monday through Saturday for reservations.     

Brunch has three seating locations:

  • The Rotunda which is the area at the bottom of the Grand Staircase with the buffet around its perimeter.  
  • TJ’s Lounge is the more intimate space located next to the Rotunda.  Please note that some seating in TJ’s Lounge is raised by two steps.  
  • The Mezzanine is the balcony overlooking the Rotunda.  Guests can use the elevator or the Grand Staircase to visit the buffet.

Menu

Our Executive Banquet Chef and his team feature the freshest seasonal ingredients as they craft each week’s unique menu. Please view our Sample Menu for the stations that you can expect and examples of some of the items that may be featured.

RESERVATION TIPS:

  • If you are receiving a busy signal or your call is not being answered when calling 804-649-4662, please continue to call back. This means that the reservations line is currently full, but another caller will be allowed into the reservations queue soon.
  • Once you are in the queue, please do not hang up! We have a team of people taking reservations and your call will be answered in the order in which it was received.
  • On each reservation call-in date, availability updates will be posted on the home page of this website.  Please be sure to refresh your browser each time you visit for the latest information.
  • Reservations will only be accepted by telephone at 804-649-4662. Unfortunately, our team will not be able to assist you with reservations via social media, email, walk-in or on another telephone line coming into the hotel.
  • In effort to minimize hold times and maximize availability of reservations we ask that a single caller, using a single phone line, be designated for those parties wishing to make reservations for a group. We are happy to take more than one reservation per caller but request your assistance in avoiding double bookings and long wait times caused by duplicate bookings.
  • Please have your credit card ready when calling.  A credit card guarantee is required to hold your reservation.
