Very good BBQ. And the Mac n Cheeses are to die for!
Fantastic service. Excellent Bbq.
Havent dined in but ordered a smoked turkey for Thanksgiving. It was excellent. I plan to visit the restaurant in the near future.
Tat tots off the hook !!!
great night out, with great music and wonderful staff. Bring back Adwela and the uprising anytime.

Tom van Kouwen
Outstanding food and service, but our dish was served cold.
Wonderful meats and a large selection of beverages. This place has a great relaxed atmosphere.
Eclectic! Diners drive in and dives kind of place.
Violette Lilly Rose Patrick
The fire pit outside is the best feature! The food could use some passion in the cooks!
Great food beer and music
Holy brisket Batman!!!
We had the ribs last night and they were absolutely delicious! They were falling off the bone tender packed full of flavor. Best ribs we have had in a very long time. More...
Great weekend venue with live bands and outdoor seating
Fred Erica Jackson
Always a good time, great drinks too!
Rustic, artistic, fantastic.
Fast service nice wait staff and very good music tonight
This is a pretty good Bbq place. We went for lunch so we didnt get to enjoy the massive list of drinks and beer they had. The food was pretty good i had the brisket chili and it was good but spicy . The outdoor seating looks like it would be great on a fall evening. More...
Great Bbq and bourbon. Smoke friendly outside. Fresh pork skins! Tricky parking.
Very good. The pulled pork was my favorite, and the hush puppies and Mac and cheese were amazing! They had a Glenlivet flight for $18. The greens were a little gritty, possibly needed to be rinsed a little better. Lots of indoor and outdoor seating. More...
Becous i love it
I loved the live band. Drinks were good and service was amazing. I cant wait for next weekend!!
The music and food!!! Love those guys Blanks & Wright and Hope to see them more and more!!! Your food is incredible and the portions are huge! Best place in Lynchburg for fun and food! More...
Awesome food, great laid back & relaxed atmosphere. They also have fun open mic nights Tuesdays and Thursdays. Double the fun :-)
Good food good sprits
I love the food and thw atmosphere. Nice place to sip and eat.
Food is always great.
Good beer and food ,nice atmosphere
Delicious brisket, hush puppies and bourbons. Cool atmosphere with outdoor games. Great time!
Burger off the chain delicious! Cracklin, onion rings, and fries unexpected spicy and tasty surprise! Looking forward to going back!!!
Great place for live music. Great food.
Best food ever! Keep up the great work and the service was on point!!!
The baby back ribs were delicious! The desert cobbler was missing something and would have been better heated
Concept, decor, look, use of space, staff, all first-rate. Food somewhat below-par.
Loved the atmosphere and food was great!
Very good local pub, great beer and whiskey selection, and very friendly service.
Great great BBQ! Service is always good and the whiskey selection is the best I've seen.
Really liked this place. Chill vibe! Macaroni and cheese was epic with blue cheese and burnt ends. Burgers and fries were pretty darn good too!
Cindy W. Bryant
Food was delicious! Like any good place to eat, it's not like you have to be in a hurry. It takes time. Employees are courteous and friendly.
great atmosphere. great service and lots of fun!!! even kids and doggies are welcome
The best burgers in town! Their house-brewed beer, Chaos, is by far one of my all-time favorite beers. This is a great place to come on a weekend to listen to live music, have a bucket of tots, and an ice-cold beer. If you're in the mood for a burger, try out the College Town, it's amazing! The Southern Style Poutine is another must-try. More...
Great atmosphere!! love the new fish tacos!
Let me tell you all about Fifth & Federal. There are so many amazing things! From the food, to the staff, to the drinks, 10/10 recommend for anyone in the Lynchburg area. I visit Lynchburg around 2-3 times a year and I will be at Fifth & Federal every day. They have open mic on some nights, and bands on the others. They host fundraisers for charity and a huge crowd is always out there supporting them. My absolutely favorite people that work there are Madison and Vicky! They make you feel so welcomed and as if you are in your own home with your family. I will always take my business to Fifth & Federal and I know that I will receive outstanding service every single time. More...
Great food and great service. The smoked chicken is amazing. We will be back!
Awesome themes, scenery, and entertainment
Had a great time during happy hour bartender was super outgoing, friendly and suggested a few mixed drinks which I loved. This gastropub still feels inviting even in the late hours "surprisingly even outside thanks to a toasty fire pit" . The food is great and the location is a definite plus. Definitely coming here more often. More...
Charlene Copeland Patterson
We sat out on the patio it was nice and flies tried to take over. Some zappers would have nice to attract the flies. The food was good.
Nice atmosphere and love outside eating with music.
I'm a huge whiskey fan and was SO excited to hear about this place! My only complaint was the lack of seating for people. Otherwise great selection of whiskey and bourbon and seriously the most cool atmosphere . Excited to try this place again on a not so busy night! More...
Love music in the heart of downtown Lynchburg. Good smoked brisket and old fashioneds
Oh man, the drinks are amazing and the pulled pork is to die for. Order the Southern Style Poutine, it's amazing everytime.
Great live music to enjoy while you eat. Creative designed environment....
Great food. Live music. Good service.
Fun experience. Great food. Staff is supportive. Odyssey Fest was for a great cause and well organizing.
The food smells and tastes great. Especially like the brisket. Huge list of whiskey to choose from. A fun place to hang out.
Great experience! The BBQ and hush puppies were amazing, the service was wonderful and the atmosphere on the patio was fun
I recommend Fifth & Federal as a place to go and experience a great atmosphere indoors and outdoors. As you are walking up to the entrance I could feel the welcoming energy. When I walked inside, everything I felt was confirmed. I was glad to represent The American Foundation for the Prevention of Suicide during The Odyssey Fest. Great food, fun, atmosphere and the staff were world class! More...
Although everything that I've tried has been amazing, I'm head over heels for their hush puppies and coleslaw!EDIT: very disappointed to learn the house (vinegar) Cole slaw I loved so much is no longer being made!
Service was lacking
This place is awesome! Fabulous atmosphere! Kid and dog friendly. Wonderful outdoor seating.
Hands down the black and blue Mac and cheese is the best but I got it without the blue cheese I love the smoke flavor of the cheese and meat
Best happy hour in town. Food is good and drinks are poured strong.
Great outdoors environment with live music and alcohol..Very laid back atmosphere..I really enjoyed it..
Food is always good.
I adore this place great bourbon
Amazing food and portion sizes
Great food, drinks and music!
After a long trip through the south I went to many Q places anybody can put meat in a smoker and call it BBQ but these guys are the real deal no BS but awesome smoked meats !!!
Some of the most amazing food at such a decent price, copious choices of whiskeys and alcohols. The vibe was great and the staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend
Really great bartenders and staff!
Very good BBQ
Great beer selection, great atmosphere, and some of the best food in town. Their hoecakes are amazing and their burgers beat all other burgers in Lynchburg.
Good service, good food, and good entertainment. Parking is the biggest issue, but there's plenty of parking if you don't mind walking a block.
Great food, live music, lots of fun. And the fire pit outside.
Really loved the place for the design and attention to every single detail. So unexpected.
Best St Paddy's day and night food was great service was excellent only brisket needs improvement a little dry
Great local bar + barbeque. Drinks are well made and all the employees are very friendly and knowledgeable. I come here often.
I would say it's pretty good.... being the nachos are all gone.
Great ribs and brisket!
Friendly but not over-conversing bar tenders, great local drink options, occasional live music. I would highly recommend, even if you are just stopping in for a plate of fries.
Food was great but the service was a little slow even though it wasn't busy..
Brisket and entertainment were fabulous
Great food and awesome building repurposed!
Great atmosphere, live music and enjoyable food, small parking lot though.
Pete Turpin - Entertainer
Great evening for my brother in laws birthday, food was on point. Music ,atmosphere, thanks Eric, an staff, we had a good time.
Trashcans are a little overpriced but other then that great food and service.
BBQ is great. The atmosphere is unique and homey. Meat is cooked to perfection, sauce is awesome, and their hush puppies are like candy.
Great place for food and drinks. Love the look and the atmosphere.
Great for bourbon, BBQ and live music!
AWESOME FOOD AND DRINKS!
I got bbq carry out. The brisket and ribs are good. I could tell the hush puppies were well made, even though they aren't to my taste.
Cozy and small inside. Cool outdoor space with good weather. Nice craft beer selection with the massive whisky/bourbon choice. Love the nachos!
Pretty good food, although the sauces can be a bit sweet for my tastes. Burgers are quite good. Service is good, although a bit more reserved than other places.
Nice place. Excellent food. BBQ! Friendly staff. Unique atmosphere..tables, stools and everything. Great outdoor seating with fire pit (see picture). Plenty of Tvs and huge bar. Parking is very sparse and hard to find but worth the trouble. More...
we ate at fifth and federal today, and I couldn't be happier. The only downside that I found the whole time we were here was one song in particular that played that was a little bit vulgar for my taste. I don't blame the restaurant for that, it was just luck of the draw.for food I ordered the 801 club, which is oven roasted turkey and ham lettuce tomato and bacon and Duke's mayonnaise on grilled bread. The pickles that came with it or fantastic and taste like they're homemade. I also ordered the barbecue beans as my side, and I couldn't have been happier with that. For drinks we tried the Bedford bird dog, which was absolutely out of this world.During lunch, I enjoyed a basil Hayden's rye.overall, I would highly recommend fifth and federal. The only time I would probably avoid it as if I had my children with me. More...
Really good bar food if your looking for something a bit different, great draft selection, love the atmosphere
Great indoor/outdoor music venue and downtown Lynchburg BURGER, BBQ, BEER n BOURBON joint!!
Love this place for the atmosphere... especially the outdoor seating. Very chill. Drink selection is good. Food is average...leans more sweet, less salty.
Excellent service and food!
I thought everything about the place was awesome.
My review is based on me ordering take-out. I’m skeptical (make that highly skeptical) of BBQ here in Virginia—Lynchburg in particular. I’m from North Carolina and I USED to feel like we did it the best. When I tell you I took that food and got in my car and popped open that container for a taste and my mouth was set and ready to say something negative. All I could do was chew! I got a sampler with brisket, ribs, pork loin, and chopped barbecue. Everything was so tender. I could have used a bit more salt and I’m glad I had the opportunity to adjust my own salt on my food. On that order they left off the hush puppies but the order I just picked up they were there. Can’t wait to taste them. The Mac and cheese aren’t my style but by the time I was done on that first order it was all gone so it can’t be that bad. All together the meal was great. Great enough that I’m back here doing it again! More...
awesome jay like and subscribe
Excellent! Hush puppies were so good we ordered more! My side salad and balsamic vinaigrette were a perfect pair. Ordered the pork combo and shared. There was plenty for two.
Great food, great beer selection, fun atmosphere.
Fifth and Federal is a fun place to eat. The atmosphere is unique and the BBQ is delicious. It's a regular for our date nights.
Damn good brisket! Mouth watering, super tender, smokey brisket! It is delicious and needs to be experienced by every one! And an excellent choice in whiskey! Just wish they had a matching choice of cigars. More...
I love this place. Great selection of bourbon and wishkey. Good menu selections from burgers, bbq, and sandwiches. Their mac and cheese options are great. Everytime I visit Lynchburg I come here for a drink on the outdoor patio. More...
Great food and pleasant service. Atmosphere is the best
Great idea! It's a converted gas station (very nicely done) with fantastic food and a ridiculous whiskey selection.
This place is the bomb
Great place for people that dont have ins.
First time, my girlfriend and I were looking for good dining experience on Saturday evening around 6 and had little to no wait. For ordering, and seating the food was out quickly and was cooked great.... the only downside was limited parking, and ordering an appetizer as the appetizer came out just one minute prior to the meal. But this was a great experience and great value. Recommend that if you go on a saturday to be there prior to 7 as we left there was quite a lengthy line. The staff was friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was fitting towards the decorations. Great experience. More...
Apple bourbon. And airplane propeller were awesome
One of the hidden gems of Lynchburg that's outside of the popular "downtown" area along the river.
Very nice place to sit back and relax with friends
The burger and pork barbeque were very good, the brisket was well seasoned but very tough.
Great food. Nothing like it in Lynchburg. BBQ and Mac & Cheese is tough to beat. BLT was great tonight also
Amazing food, wide bar selection and fun atmosphere.
This is just ridiculously good food in a casual setting
What a great place. The environment is awesome!
Love this joint. They grille the best meats. Check out the whiskey list.
This place is the place to go to for great food and entertainment.

My hubs swears by their pork rindz! A fun place for a great burger!
First time here, came a little to close to closing time to truly enjoy all this place has to offer. Food was good, service top notch.
Good place to eat if it's nice outside. The patio is really nice but seating inside is limited. The food was great, they had really good BBQ and beer.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Live band.
Really good food
Amazing and the staff were top shelf!!!
The best BBQ in town the service is excellent awesome atmosphere and great selection of food and adult beverages everyone is friendly and make you feel at home I would rate it at a 10 if it would let me it's a must to try in the restaurant sceen in Lynchburg also on Thursday nights they have open Mic night the parking is very limited but family dollar which is next door will allow you to park on the back row and if that is full there is a road on the left side across from family dollar parking lot if u take this road there are apartments in the right side with a lot that allow parking on but there is a slight hill to walk up and is about a 1 block walk or approx 500 feet walk also they just purchased a lot adjacent to them if you're facing the building it is on the left side. .. I hope that this is helpful and enjoy More...
Super friendly staff absolutely delicious food that you will smell the moment you step out of your car portion sizes could be a little bit bigger but overall a great atmosphere and wonderful place.
Great food and beer. Also a great whiskey list
Great food at good prices. Great service. We had the platter. Fantastic ribs and pulled pork.
Great home cooked food, with a southern flare!
Southern style food, pulled pork and mac and cheese, tater-tots, beer and whiskey.
Community access network this is a medical facility. The doctors are attentive, the nurses are gentle and the staff is fun but very professional the pharmacy and office center neat and clean. If u need to b treated Go to this facility you won't regret it. More...
The food is good and they have a wide variety of whiskes at the bar. The waitstaff take their time doing anything though, and I had to wait an uncomfortable amount of time between receiving the check and them taking the payment so that we could leave.
Pretty good food!
Great place, good food, and bourbon
I think the energy is contagious and fun. If only parking can be addressed.
Good food and friendly staff
Not too many options for bbq around town. I still think the best comes off my smoker but this place beats all the others around town.
Simply the best barbeque in Lynchburg Try the bourbon flights. I love the pulled pork platters.
Great places for some great food. I really like the burgers here. Great bar menu too.
Went for st patty's day... friendly staff, very nice outdoor live music and great drinks. Fun atmosphere!
First time visiting. Tried pulled pork and smoked loin. Both were great. Interesting atmosphere converting an old service station into the restaurant.
Great food and atmosphere.
Great food, nice folks.
Place is cool. Food was delicious. Bartender was awesome.
Great food. Joe one of the cooks is great. Cold beer. Ask for Joe to talk to you about the food. He is the main catering person too. If hes there its done right.
One of my favorite places to patron. Great food and alcohol. I'm a fan of the open mic night and goth night every month is fantastic
Great BBQ and atmosphere. Highly recommend it.
Great music by the Bogeys.
Becoming one of my favorite indoor/outdoor locations for food beer and music in town. This place has really cemented the feel of the entire 5-street roundabout as a destination for Lynchburgers. Loving how it is growing!
Awesome is not a big enough praise.I'LL BE BACK
Even though we arrived late, we were very well taken care of. I love their beer selection. I also love that I'm able to bring my dog with me. Very friendly staff.
BBQ was great
Great food and service. Always! Bonus: Great music at the garage stage!!
Get in on the coolest spot on 5th
Unique restaurant/bar to Lynchburg. Great music area and yard.

Great food good beer choices
Nice beer selection, nostalgia and good food
Great locally owned and involved local bar super attention to community tastes in music, foods and libations
This is where I go to see my doctor.
This is one of the best of the newer restaurant to open in Lynchburg in the last few years. Their barbecue is some of the best we have in town and I am getting hungry just thinking about it now. Their other food items have always been good as well. They have a great selection of bourbon and a large comfortable outside area for dining. More...
I'm very picky about the level of service I receive when going out, but this place has most definitely exceeded my level of service. I'm beyond pleased with my level of service and quality of food and beverage. Thank you for helping make my birthday amazing! More...
I had a fantastic hamburger at Fifth and Federal!
Great food and service nice seating outside
An interesting place. We were fortunate that the sky was cloudy while sitting out listening to the jazz band. They have tater tots and BBQ that are the bomb!
Stopped in for the first time after hearing a lot of good things about Fifth and Federal. Lived up to the hype! Great food - had the pulled pork with some hush puppies and slaw. great balance and good portions. washed down with some local cider. left knowing I will be back again. keep up folks!! More...

My wife and I enjoyed our first time eating here. Great food, nice atmosphere, and friendly service. My burger was one of the best I've had in awhile.

Phenomenal food, great beer selection, awesome atmosphere! Fun place; wish that I lived closer.
No need to travel to Carolinas for great pig! Sweet and spicy BBQ that is simply amazing. Lynchburg BBQ has been put on the map. Add a bourbon barrel beer on tap and I'm a big fan. More...
Anybody who loves great food and an even better whiskey selection, this is the place for You! Great staff

Great bbq and cool atmosphere with a very large outdoor setting. Enjoy!
Great service , great food , and wonderful atmosphere.
Food was wonderful. Beer was not cold.
I went here with my boyfriend last night. We have been wanting to check this place out since they opened. I heard a lot about the parking situation but was able to find a parking space right away. When we first walked it was crowded but we only waited for an outside table for about 5 min. The atmosphere is very social and laid back. Our server, Elizabeth was awesome. The food was AMAZING and the Lemonade was great too. I will defiantly be back. More...
This was our 2nd time there & we've not been disappointed. This is an excellent BBQ place with a cool retro atmosphere.
Mosley good food, but a little bit pricey. My chicken was extremely dry. Maybe just a bad day in the kitchen?
Todd and Frankie Vieu
This place is great food is authentic and terrific service is awesome
Good place for a quick bite and drinks. Excellent bourbon menu. Even has bourbon flights.
Great food. Great outdoor area. I only wish it was level...
Food and service was excellent. Open air atmosphere allowed some flies in the dining area. Unique motif and good beer selection
Great place to go for drinks
Love the decor and location. Service was average. Food was fine. I will go back to try other menu items and drinks...when I'm not so rushed or driving.
Went here for my birthday celebration! A fun experience. Food was good...most of the wait staff were very friendly! The drinks are crazy good!!!!
Really nice happy hour , can brinv your pup n chill, love it
Meats are great, sauce not so much.
Absolutely the best place in Lynchburg to get barbecue. And if you're looking for a hard to find whiskey most likely Fifth and federal station will have it. Indoor seating and outdoor seating is a plus and regularly there is live music. Staff is friendly and service is excellent. 5 stars all the way. More...
Awesome experience! Great drinks!
Steven -Doc- Troxel
Good food. Friendly, helpful service.
Hush puppies. All you need is the hush puppies. They are to die for and the other food and drinks are delicious.
They have great food and great music and great staff
Excellent food, fun atmosphere!
This is a very laid back place, but not in terms of service; the staff here takes customer service seriously. I've never had bad service and I have always been very impressed with the food too.
They also have a good drink selection here if that is something that means a lot to you.
The most important thing is that they are not very expensive for the amount of food that you get. I've been very impressed with this place! More...
