A nice treat to enjoy dinner in the 18th century atmosphere. Musicians play for you during your meal and food is excellent. You do pay more than you would elsewhere but you are paying for the experience. Nice to try at least once.

Restaurant in restored town area. Costumed wait staff and entertainers and traditional Colonial menu and drinks. Candle-lit dining at wooden tables, busy but good ambience - like stepping back in time. Fun entertainment. LOTS of food - a little heavy sometimes but pace yourself. A 'must do' to get the full Williamsburg experience!

Great place for a romantic dinner. The Food is very good and authentic to the Period. Especially enjoyable around the Christmas season.

If you want delicious food with a bit of history thrown in eat here. My husband and I ate here and had a fantastic dinner. All the food was done perfect and all was delicious. Atmosphere was perfect for our trip.. Costumed waiters and waitresses, a costumed violin player playing tunes of the time period and another costumed woman telling... More

We have eaten here 3 times in the past 14/15 months and it remains our favorite tavern. As always the wait staff makes the difference and they are always great. There is usually spiel we here each time but it is always great when the staff is able to add a little extra.

Although a bit pricey, the bill of fare is interesting - with options for the tame palate as well as those more historically adventurous. Yes, I did have the wild game pie, and while delicious in the whole, it reminded me how I am not the biggest fan of large doses of venison. The servers were very gracious and the... More

The ambience and atmosphere make up for any small deficency in the meal. It's pricy, but you know you aren't eating at a Colonial Tavern for the dollar meals. For the full effect of colonial dining,go after dark when th candlelight reinforces the historic feel.
