My husband and I stopped at Wilkerson's, a restaurant I frequented growing up, on our way in to Colonial Beach for a weekend getaway. We felt like we ordered one of everything on the menu! Hushpuppies come piping hot after your drinks, the cream of crab soup is delicious and the appetizer seafood sampler was ample for 2. The flounder... More

We enjoyed our lunch at Wilkerson's. The service was good and the food was good. The waitress started us off with a basket of hot, delicious hush puppies and good iced tea. I could've made a meal off of that. I ordered the crab cake sandwich which was good, if a little too spicy for my taste. I can't recall... More

We were looking for a really good seafood restaurant in or near Colonial Beach. Wilkerson's was okay. Service was really good and fairly quick, checked on us several times, but the food was just average!

The restaurant is located on the river and there is a very nice view of the river from the dinning room area. The wait staff was very friendly. The hush puppies were very good and one of the reasons we went there. We had the crab cake, which was also good with only a couple of pieces of shell in... More

The food is good and the staff is always pleasant. I have eaten here many times and remember coming here with my family when I was a child. The view of the water is a nice added feature.

Such a good place to dine and check out the view. So relaxing and just good food and such friendly people. The water looked so elegant from the big window they have.

My girlfriend and I visited Wilkerson's Seafood Restaurant for lunch, while visiting Virginia's Northern Neck. We were quickly seated by a window giving us a great view of the Potomac River which included a view of an Osprey and its nest. Our waitress was efficient and knowledgeable. I ordered the softshell crab sandwich which was very good and the french... More
