Went during bike week. Nothing outstanding, but a variety of choices. Had rockfish and shrimp. Fish average tasting. Shrimp not fresh, appeared to be the frozen type, prepackaged.

$30.00 buffet of dried up tasteless food. Menu items are OK at best and expensive. It's on the Potomac so you do have a view and this is where the waterman harvest blue crabs so you would think at least the crab items would be good. Not the case. The place is old and smells/looks like it. It appears they... More

Well known as the buffet worth eating but not sure where that reputation came from. We went in expecting lots of food, well worth the $28.95. Checked it out before ordering it and it was mostly fried (over done) food on the buffet with few selections. We both ate from the menu and it was fair but overpriced. Not sure... More

The view from here is something to see. The food is fine but not memorable. Altogether average except for that view. I have been here twice with family and they loved seeing the osprey!

This restaurant has been around a long time (since 1946, I think), and for much of that time it had a great reputation. There just doesn't seem to be the "fire in the belly" for running a great place that the original owners had, even if they are the same family. There's so very much opportunity here: still living on... More

We met our daughter and grandchildren at Wilkerson’s for lunch over spring break. We like the view of the river while we eat and usually stop by the Colonial Beach boardwalk after we finish. The lunch specials are a bargain at $9-12 each and include bacon burgers, shrimp, oysters, crab cakes, etc. They come with 2 sides and a basket... More

Came for lunch. We were greated promptly. We asked for a table on the window facing the water. That whole section was full except for a table that had just been vacated. It was quickly cleaned and we sat where we wanted. Had an Amber Bock on draft for only $2.50. My girlfriend had a glass of local wine from... More

I have visited this establishment for over 40 years, since my family had a summer place in Colonial Beach. Wilkerson's was always a favorite for crabs in the summer. It is not as suitable a dining experience in the off season. Mediocre fried seafood, a bar where a request for a scotch elicited an offer of Jim Beam, and a... More
