 Rhett’s Bar and Grill, formerly of Charlottesville, is getting a fresh start in Zion Crossroads with its new location. 

  Rhett’s plans to open Monday, Oct. 26. The restaurant serves fresh seafood, steaks, and much more. Rhett’s versatility makes it the perfect spot to go watch football games with TVs surrounding the bar area, or have a nice dinner in the modern, upscale dine-in section of the restaurant. Patrons can also enjoy Sunday brunch with friends and family.

  Rhett’s is a restaurant that got its start in Charlottesville and did tremendously well there.   Unfortunately due to rent issues at their former location in a strip mall, the restaurant shut down. This ultimately allowed for a new future for the business. Their need for relocation gave them the perfect opportunity to start fresh, and build their very own restaurant out of Zion Crossroads. 

  On July 15, 2019, the restaurant and bar shut down in Charlottesville, but not before they started building in Zion Crossroads. On June 8 of 2019, Rhett’s officially confirmed the construction of the new location was under way,  and was progressing all the way through the end of 2019, and well into the beginning of months of 2020.  

  The original plan for the new location seemed to be to open back up and continue providing for their customers, until the opening date was pushed back due to Covid-19. The construction still took place in the months of quarantine, although slower than expected. After putting on all of the finishing touches in the months approaching October, the restaurant is eager to be serving their customers once again. 

  To counteract the new circumstances, the restaurant is doing take-out orders, as well as no contact delivery to local customers. Rhett’s is trying to stay connected with their customers in the safest way possible by incorporating these methods of food delivery. The option to dine-in is also available to their customers who wish to watch a game at their bar, or enjoy a nice dinner as well. 

  Follow the opening of their new restaurant on their Facebook, as well as get inside looks into how the new building came about. To contact the restaurant, use the email address at [email protected], Or at their phone number of (540)-832-6280.
