Summer is for seafood. Though seafood is delicious year-round, there’s something extra satiating about the flavors of the sea during the balmy summer months. The team at Preston’s, the award-winning restaurant at The Inn at Virginia Tech, are major fans of enjoying seafood during the summer. As a result, Preston’s now offers a Summer Seafood Buffet with a full spread in its recently renovated buffet room. For the next few months, every single Friday gets to be a special occasion at The Inn, and you’re invited to join!
