Quick device but small buffet

Buffet was a bit over priced for the 7-8 items offered (plus salad bar). The food was cooked alright but mostly fried. We strictly tried the buffet (except our 3 year old had a hot dog) so I cannot speak for the menu items. Service was quick and friendly. Overall, a one and done stop for us.

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and normally the food is very good, but prices are a bit steep for the quality of food. I got the crab cake sandwich and with every bite i was crunching shells. My son had the crab cake entree and he also complained about crunching on shells. I was banking on getting... More

We've been going here for 40+ years. We've spent many a day crabbing on their pier as well. I took my son to dinner expecting the same fare. Hush puppies were overdone, one was burnt. The buffet is small and overpriced at $29.95. The single crabcake dinner was 14.95. The crabcake was hot and golden but still very wet on... More

Awful. Food was over fried, more breading than seafood, warm (not hot), and the shrimp tasted of bleach - worst money spent in a long time.

An excellent seafood restaurant with a stunning view of the Potomac from the dining room. Menu includes locally sourced rockfish and crab. Worth the trip to Colonial Beach!

A couple of years ago when we were near here we wanted to have dinner here but didn't have the time. This time we made a point of stopping in and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. The waitress was right on point and they had a nice salad bar. The view of the water was gorgeous.

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
