Chesterfield VA Thanksgiving
When it comes to preparing Thanksgiving dinner, if you're like many Chesterfield locals, you may opt to make reservations instead of a turkey.

If your heart sinks at the thought of missing mom's homemade mashed potatoes, cornbread stuffing, and pumpkin pie, don't despair. Our real estate agents have a solution that combines honoring the holiday with local history and coming together with family and friends.

Why not make your family's Thanksgiving Day reservation at the Half Way House in Chesterfield? Often referred to as "the best-kept secret in Richmond," Rick and Sue Young, Chesterfield residents and owners of the Half Way House, offer guests fine cuisine in a cozy, intimate atmosphere.

History of the Half Way House

Built in 1760, the Half Way House served as a resting point for people traveling between Richmond and Petersburg (it was approximately halfway between the two cities) from the Revolution until late in the 19th Century.

Some of its more famous visitors were the Marquis de Lafayette, Generals Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington. Today, Chesterfield's locals and visitors can take a step back in time and see the original Manor House and the authentic antiques that furnish it. A unique feature of the Half Way House is that the kitchen is in a separate building from the Manor House.

Daily Dining in Chesterfield

Executive Chef Raymond Allen leads the restaurant's staff preparing both lunch and dinner fare. Topping the list of favorite meals are Chesapeake Bay blue crab cakes, blackened duck breast, and hot apple pie. Reserve the Half Way House for private dining as well.

Lunch is served Monday through Friday from 11:30 am until 2:00 PM. Dinner is served nightly from 5:30 PM until 9:00 pm.

Making Thanksgiving Reservations for You and Your Family

Thanksgiving dinner here is like none other in the area. A local Thanksgiving Day staple in Chesterfield for generations, the "gobbling" starts at noon on Thursday, November 22 and lasts until 7:00 PM.

You'll enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving Day menu with your choice of favorites like roast turkey and baked ham. If you're in the mood for something a little different, order a petite filet, salmon, shrimp, or prime rib entrees.

Make sure to leave room for a homemade dessert: pumpkin pie, pecan pie, hot apple crisp ala mode, and gingerbread with brandied hard sauce top off the meal.

We recommend reservations. Call 804.275.1760.  You can find The Half Way House at 10301 Jefferson Davis Highway, North Chesterfield, Virginia.

Come and visit this historic landmark in Virginia and become a part of nearly three hundred years of history.
