Good food and views!

Food was good and the view are excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive. Not a bad seat in the restaurant. Really enjoyed the crab cakes! Would definitely visit again.

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.

Stopped by here for lunch and was pleasantly surprised...We were seated quickly and walked past a woman eating the lunch special of stuffed lobster tail and crab cake. It looked amazing!! We were seated and immediately brought water and a basket of hush puppies that we're the best I've ever had. My husband got the crab cake sandwich that was... More

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

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.

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!
