Blacksburg is a host to a variety of restaurants and bars, each with their own atmosphere, drink specials and events. Though many are in close proximity to each other in downtown Blacksburg, the entertaining bartenders, live music and variety of spirits let these establishments stand on their own and offer a diverse day or night-out experience.
Back in 1974, Gillies opened as an ice cream shop, but within a year they became one of the first places in Blacksburg to serve soup and bread. In the 1980’s the menu grew to include inspired vegetarian and seafood using the freshest, healthiest ingredients for the best home made results. Gillie’s is the perfect combination of down home charm and progressive vegetarian.
Whether you are looking for a quiet, healthful meal, a fun and filling breakfast, late night music, or catering for a special event, Gillie’s brings it to you, naturally.
