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

It was very clean inside but that's were the good part stopped. The waitress was so-so, she seemed put out whenever we asked for something. The basket of hush puppies had quite a few overdone, crispy puppies. The salad bar was okay but the price of a salad bar alone is NOT worth it. My husband got a good meal... More

I have always been a big fan of Wilkersons, but lately the food quality is not the same. Don't know if it was because there was a large crowd or what. The crab cake was dry and too much filler and even their normally great hush puppies were over done. Will try again, but sure hope they get their act... More

Tied up dockside and decided for an afternoon early dinner. Entry is fairly straight away and interior is reminiscent of 80's jersey shore restaurants near Cape May or Wildwood. I'm thinking Urie's. Decor was dated, yet clean and okay. Sat near the numerous large windows opening up to the Potomac and the scenery was nice. The hush puppies were okay.... More

We ate breakfast there and waitress was nice and food was good. I saw a nice Tiki area out back and they had a great artist from Maryland that night(Sam Grow)who is now moving up in world! It is one of only 2 places I know of in area that has live music on weekends.
