The ads you'll see for this place in brochures and things make it look like a "tavern", as in a place that has all different kinds of food and drinks and is maybe kind of cozy inside. When you actually get there though you'll see that it's really just a pizza shop with a counter and a few tables. To be fair, they do have table service and serve subs and a few other items besides pizza, but it's definitely not a tavern by any means. To top it all off, the pizza here isn't even that good. Just keep this stuff in mind if you're planning to eat here!

This place was far and away the best place we ate in Williamsburg. It's locally owned and the food is great (I'm really picky), very fresh and well prepared. The wine list is great, too, and they have a children's menu, so no worries there. The staff and service were fantastic as well. Another bonus: for a place serving cuisine on the upscale side the prices here are really reasonable. This restaurant has won a number of awards in recent years and they deserve all of them. If you're in Williamsburg you really should try to eat here if you can. Highly recommended! Tip: If you're planning ahead you might want to make a reservation. It gets really busy at night.
Favorite Dish: The seafood dishes all seemed to be excellent; produce was great. Creme bruleé was amazing. Order the local Williamsburg wine. It's really good.

Historic building, part of Colonial Williamsburg with costumed help and entertainers. Feels very much like an English Pub, menu posted on a chalkboard, order what you want, pay, take a table, and when your food is ready someone brings it to your table. In addition to salads, soups, and sandwiches there are a large selection of baked goods.
When we were having lunch it appeared that members of the musuem staff were picking up quick lunches during their work break.
Favorite Dish: Sticking with my love of southern biscuits, this time warmed with a hunk of cheddar cheese. The garden greens with grilled chicken served with toasted peanuts was also great.

Dinner in the main restaurant is a spurgle event. We went for it beginning with mixed salads followed by pan roasted shirmp for me and beef tenderloin for my husband. I finished the meal with the "Diamonds & Ice" dessert while my husband opted for the pastry of the day, a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake with a side of chocolate sorbet.
I think you could enjoy the outside area during the day for less $$$ . The hours of 3 until 5 are listed for desserts/drinks so that might be the time for just the "Death By Chocolate" as a special mid afternoon treat.
Favorite Dish: Oh I think I need revisit Williamsburg and eat here again before deciding. Perhaps finding a couple friends to help me polish off a "Death By Chocolate"

Perfect place to sit, rest your feet, and give yourself a few minutes to regroup while making the most of your day. Many of the lunch items are named after famous colonists-- i.e. I had the Thomas Jefferson (ham & biscuits, chutney, pickle) while my husband selected the Martha Washington (fresh fruit plate with pound cake).
Favorite Dish: Good old American BISCUITS What can I say, where ever you are in Virginia you can not go wrong ordering them -- there must be something special about the flour. Even the best biscuits in New England do not seem as fluffy and rich.

We found this place "pot luck" on our way into Williamsburg. It is located along one of those busy main road strips with lots of chains (food & retail). I simply wanted to sit down, have a waitress, and something better than fast food (McD's, Wendy's, BK) stuff. But my husband and I solidended up enjoying well prepared meal of quality ingredients with prompt comfortable yet slightly elegant service.
I started with french onion soup followed by jumbo shrimp stuffed with crabmeat (yum). My husband had a crab cake starter followed by a ceasar salad topped with grilled chicken. Everything was EXCELLENT. A very very pleasant welcome to Williamsburg.
Favorite Dish: The crab stuffed jumbo shrimp or the crabcakes.

A wink from a cute barmaid lured me into this fine and festive, speedy service establishment. Fashioned in Colonial style decor and architecture, as is every establishment in Colonial Williamsburg, lies Josiah Chowning's tavern in the heart of the old town. They boast a daytime menu that has quick fresh fare such as pulled pork, beef brisket, hickory-grilled hamburgers, salads, and other sandwiches. In the evening, it becomes a true 18th century rum and alehouse, serving light fare, local ales and wines, rums, and Colonial Williamsburg's own draft root beer. Balladeers lead guests in rousing sing-alongs and constumed servers invite patrons to play popular colonial games. I feasted on the small and pricey, but delicious crab cake sandwich while sitting with a couple from Texas as there are no private tables at this pub. Entertained by fiddlers and violinists, a magician, and comedy ... my quickly served dinner snacking on bowls of peanuts while awaiting the food gave my feet a good rest and my spirit an uplift as I tried to figure out entertainment for the rest of the evening. Rating: 4 stars out of 5. Visited 5/21/08.

A legendary enormous seafood buffet with some of the freshest and most delicious seafood available. They have four locations - one in Myrtle Beach, SC; and three in Virginia. I visited the Williamsburg, Virginia location on 5/20/08. Captain Georges was started in 1978 by George and Sherry Pitsilides who wanted to provide fresh seafood in an all-you-can eat buffet featuring more than 70 items. Their menu often consists of She-Crab Soup, New England Clam Chowder, Snow Crab Legs, Steamed Spiced Shrimp, Prime Rib, Fresh Broiled Salmon, Seafood Casserole, Steamed Clams, Steamed Mussels, Norfolk Special, Fried Scallops, Fried Trout, Fried Shrimp, Baked Imperial Crabmeat Supreme, BBQ Ribs, Hampton-Style
Crab Cakes, Stuffed Mushrooms, Broiled Chicken, Oven Fried Clam Strips, Captain’s Own Deviled Crab, Manicotti, Stuffed Clams, A Variety of Fresh Broiled Fish, Clams Casino, Oysters Rockefeller, Hard Blue Crabs, Fresh Baked Breads as the main courses with just as many vegetables and sides and desserts offered. The food was fabulous as was the service. Rating 5 stars out of 5.

I have been going to this place for over 15 years. However, I just recently moved back into town and decided to give one of my old stomping grounds a try. Apparently, there are new owners, and apparently, these guys should not be anywhere NEAR a business, let alone a food service or customer service business. Me, my wife, and some friends came in around 2PM on a Saturday afternoon (because we wanted to avoid the lunch rush). Now, you would think that a restaraunt in Williamsburg would be properly staffed ona saturday afternoon. Not a chance, only the owners and their teenage son were there. We ordered 4 sandwiches and 45 minutes later, they still were not ready. At this point the kids were crying and we had already seen half a dozen other angry customers inquiring about their orders. When I went up to ask for our money back since the kids were crying and the food was still not ready, the teenage son got beligerent and informed me that there were a bunch of orders to get done, of course it would take a long time! When I asked if he was the owner, he said no and pointed to his dad, who only said "I dont give money back, and I'll call the cops if you keep asking". The son acted like he wanted to start a fist fight with me, and I just waved him off and again, politely asked for my money back. They again refused. The tone changed slightly whenI informed them that I was a local, not a tourist. I have a been a business owner for many years, and I would never even dream of treating my customers like this. Apparently they have enough business that it does not matter to them.
The worst [art of the story is that as I looked behind the counter to see where the rest of my order was, I realized that not one person handling the food was wearing gloves. Matter of fact, the teenager AND the father were both handling money at the cash register, were both cooking, and neither had gloves on. I left the food there and just informed them that I;d be contacting the health dept. 4 other customers behind me in line left at the same time.
So, bottom line, eat here at your own risk, but dont expect prompt service, customer satisfaction, or bacteria-free food!
Favorite Dish: Wish I could tell you, but I never recieved my food order!

From the moment I stepped in the door to when I put my napkin on the table I was blown away by the personal service and agreeable demeanor of the staff. Our waiter was very nice, but didn't talk too much. I got the prime rib and I mean Woah!!! - best prime rib I've every had! It rivals my grandma's home cooking!. Don't be deterred by the website's archaic appearance!
Favorite Dish: Prime rib here is perfection. They really spend time preparing a great meal. The meat was tender and almost fell off the bones and glazed in the most perfectly balanced semi-sweet barbecue.
