Lunch was fine!

My buddy and I stopped in for lunch about a month ago. Menu had a nice variety of lunchtime offerings. Staff was friendly and efficient, food was fine! No downside, so we would certainly go back.

Strategically located on Hwy 205 just outside Colonial Beach, this restaurant has a long-standing reputation for excellence. Our experience had nothing to detract from that. We needed only a light lunch, and their sandwiches filled the bill wonderfully with excellent service and reasonable prices. To complete the experience, our table by a window provided a beautiful view of the Potomac.

Went here with my family, there were a total of 8 of us. We were seated right away. The server was at our table quickly to take our drink orders. We all got the seafood buffet which was 30.00 a person. There was a salad bar and on the seafood bar was steamed shrimp, fried shrimp, barbecued shrimp, fried oysters,... More

I've been going to Wilkerson's for 30+ years. It hasn't changed much apart from a bar remodel after hurricane damage. Now they have a nice big TV... This is a great place for a family dinner out - great views of the river. Watch fishermen and ospreys and walk the beach after your meal (kids love that.) Super tasty seafood... More

Three things keep customers coming back to a restaurant: Quality. Service. Value. In a recent outing to Wilkerson’s, food quality and service was the best found anywhere. That’s the good news. The bad news is that value was sorely lacking. Good money will be paid by patrons if they feel they’re getting what they paid for. This was not the... More

The atmosphere was inviting...however, the service was extremely slow. But, the food was terrific...and we weren't really in a hurry.

As usual the view of the water with wonderful staff, fun down to the earth people and awesome food. I went with my boyfriend (man) and his family on valentines day. EXCELLENT!!! I really love the seafood and the staff, friendly locals, .Even in season I came to eat several times last year during the summer. It's a little pricey... More

I have now eaten at Wilkerson's Seafood Restaurant twice after wine-tasting jaunts. With a second disappointment, we've decided that we need to find another place to eat over there. The bright dining area with big windows on the Potomac River is its best asset. We ate late lunches both times, and in both cases I tried the salad bar. As... More

There is a shortage of good seafood restaurants these days. In a lot of areas you have to drive a little ways to get some really good fresh seafood. For my family this is the case. We are willing to drive for an hour to get seafood at Wilkerson's in Colonial Beach. When we go there, we drive down on... More

Right on the water with great views. It's a seasonal all you can eat seafood buffet and salad bar. Nice bar. Looks like locals also ate there. Special of the day was good and the lump crab BLT good. Excellent cole slaw, too.
