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

Same menu as when I first visited in 1975 with little change in price. Not anything fancy, just good home cooking. Wonderful ham biscuits and pies to die for!

This was a "must stop" on our visit to Williamsburg, VA! We enjoyed our visit so much, we had to go back! The Brunswick stew and ham and biscuit...yummy...the stew was sooo good, we had to ask for refills...and the service couldn't have been better! They also have a nice gift shop you can spend at least an hour in.

The Old Chickahominy House used to be an antiques store that had a family style dining area serving lunch. Now it's more of a knick-knack store serving breakfast, lunch and doing some catering. The family style seating is in one room only with regular tables in another two rooms. We ordered Miss Melinda's Special; fruit salad, Brunswick Stew, ham biscuits... More

Friends who know the Williamsburg area well took us to the Old Chickahominy House for brunch. It seems like you are stepping into history when you arrive. The menu for breakfast is typical southern from salty ham to grits, but they serve a flatter, rectangular biscuit that I'd never seen before. If you have to wait for a table, there... More

We went for breakfast on a recommendation from our hotel staff. The gift shop was kind of interesting with seasonal items and a cat. It was very busy, waited 20 minutes for a table. The breakfast has very limited choices. We really wanted breakfast potatoes(none on the menu). The ham was not to my liking, a little too cured for... More

Interesting building. Lacks parking. Menu choices were very limited. We went for breakfast and considered walking out but thought we would give it a chance. Food was good but Not on my list to go back.
