Birthday Lunch at Devil's Backbone

This week was a milestone birthday for Guy-the retirement age birthday.  So Dave and Cathy decided that we needed to go to the Devil's Backbone Pub and Brewery  in Nelson County for lunch.  Guy played golf this morning in 3 !/2 hours so that he would be not be late for our departure time.  It was cold and gray in the valley, but on top of Afton Mountain, it was foggy and snowy. Guy didn't  have a care in the world.  He just sat back, and let Dave do the driving...
After a 45 minute drive, we came to the brewery at the foot  of the Wintergreen Resort.  The outside of the pub/brewery is a beautiful stone and wooden structure...
The entrance had interesting door hardware, and  lighted trees, laurels, and grasses graced the landscape...
  We were greeted by many stuffed specimens of wildlife throughout the restaurant...
 A wily fox  was dressed to the nines...
An elk presided over our side of the dining area...
 
 Here are some mighty full diners with doggy bags to take home.  Only the birthday boy ate every morsel on his plate...
 My pictures are not the best.  With the skies being so gray, the restaurant itself was on the dark side so many of my interior shots didn't make this blog.  I hope to return on a sunny day and be able to enjoy the scenery.  Meanwhile, Happy Birthday, Guy!

Happy Birthday to Guy! Devil's Backbone sounds like a great birthday lunch spot. The exterior looks like it should be out west.

I've only been there once and I liked it a lot.
