100 year old home welcomes you to its dining room and kitchen for a delightful lunch or breakfast every day. Single tables are available or you can share a table with others for ham bisquits, Brunswick stew or a bowl full of homemade chicken and dumplings. Save room for the scratch made pies especially the chocolate. Antiques plus more modern... More

I visited here for lunch. The place was packed, with folks waiting in various chairs around the store and many were browsing the variety of items the gift shop offered. As we waited, we took pictures in front of the decorated Christmas tree. We had reservations and did not have to wait too long. After being seated, our wait staff... More

Enjoy a wonderful Virginia plantation style breakfast in cozy, historic surroundings that are unbeatable for ambiance. Since we visited on Christmas Eve morning the sumptuous Christmas decor gave the restaurant an extra measure of beauty and sense of Christmas. The breakfast menu was excellent and tailored to a wide-range of tastes. The food was scrumptious and served hot. The servers... More

A unique experience. Been around a long time and I have been several times over the years and it is consistently good. Breakfast is open seating but you have to call to make reservations for lunch. You call on the day after 7 and get on the list. You must be there at 11:30 to be seated. You can show... More

After visiting Williamsburg on many trips, my wife and I make it a point to have lunch at Old Chickahominy House. WHAT A SURPRISE WAS IN STORE FOR US. This must have been a revised receipt. Poor flavor. Thick with bagged vegetables and very little meat(chicken), Just plain awful. We will not return. Try the CARROT TREE.

We stopped here for lunch with friends during our visit to Williamsburg & we just loved the entire experience. Our server was a wonderful southern lady named Virginia. She is truly a national treasure & we all absolutely love her with all our hearts. The place is brimming with southern hospitality that helped us feel the charm & character of... More

It took me half-a-century to follow-up on a friend's enthusiastic recommendation to visit this restaurant, even though I'd been to Williamsburg on a number of intervening occasions. It's not in an especially inconvenient location. However, neither is it in any of the standard tourist neighborhoods. But it's certainly worth going slightly out of one's way to get to. The building... More

Have heard about the Chickahominy House for years and finally had the opportunity to lunch there. We knew it would be crowded on a beautiful autumn Saturday so arrived half hour prior to the earliest seating and still had a wait of an hour and a half. Actually enjoyed the wait time perusing their unique gift shop. The management wisely... More

They"ve got the worst Bruswick stew I've ever eaten...The Campbell soup company would have put them to shame. The lunch is very overprice. They start off with a can peach with some sort of cheap cream...very tacky and tasteless. They guard the low grade Brunswick stew as if the Queen England had made it. This restaurant is design for people... More

Step back in time when dining at the Old Chickahominy House. It is located in a tavern-style building right off Jamestown Rd. The food is simple, but served by attentive waitstaff. Limited menu helps them control the cost and quality. Loved every bite of my ham biscuits, brunswick stew, fruit salad, tea, and slice of pie! While you wait, browse... More
