Dining in Nelson County is a delight! Our local venues offer a wide variety of options including pit-cooked barbeque, seasonal gourmet meals, great Italian and Mexican dishes, and tasty country cooking.

Pair a craft beer with a select dish from one of our Brew Ridge Trail breweries or get a quick bite by grabbing a pizza, sub or fried chicken at one of our local country stores.

Coffee lovers can enjoy a hot cup, and shops are convenient for baked goods, gourmet cheeses and breads, breakfast items and even soft-serve ice cream!
