We were the first and only ones there when they opened up. It was such a unique dining experience, as it was as if we were eating in someone's fancy dining room from colonial times. The service was good and friendly and we enjoyed our breakfast as well. After we ate we enjoyed shopping in the attached gift shop and... More

Upon arriving I wasn't sure. It literally looks like a house...but the inside was charming. The waitesses were very friendly and hustling to keep everyone happy. You sit at kitchen tables in a small dining room. The menu was small but covered most anything you'd want for breakfast. Even fresh mimosas! I went with the creamed ham over biscuits since... More

This is one of the best breakfast places in Williamsburg. It is incredibly busy on the weekends and they stop serving breakfast (relatively) early, so if you want to come, be prepared to wait a bit. However, waiting isn't so bad while you browse through their small antique store inside the restaurant. Breakfast is wonderful and full of traditional southern... More

Lunch began with a salad from a can, the sandwich was minimal in size, the waitress didn't take the time to help us become familiar with the food selections, the pies for dessert seemed homemade and had good flavor but the pie crust was soggy. All in all, the experience was not up to the expectations of a previous visit.... More

Old Chickahominy House (OCH from here on), is an almost 60 year-old mainstay between Williamsburg and Jamestown. Open for breakfast and lunch, OCH offers a small menu of delicious southern dishes in a friendly, family-like environment. Half cafe and half antique store, OCH is a unique place to relax and enjoy for a while. We make a point of stopping... More

I guess after hearing about this place for so long I expected a lot. Have to admit I was disappointed. Had the cup of Fruit Salad, Brunswick Stew which was good with ham biscuit which I would not bother to order again. We ordered a couple of desserts, chocolate pie & coconut pie. You know when you leave most of... More

I was looking forward to having lunch because of the good reviews and recommendations given me. I was very disappointed, the stew had no chicken in it and was more like minestrone soup. The fruit was a peach and a pineapple from a can. The biscuits were flat bread and not tasty. The ham on the so called biscuits was... More

My wife and I stopped by this place for Breakfast and the experience was mixed. First be warned that this is not a friendly environment for people with disabilities. Very steep steps entering the building. The building looks like an old house that was converted into a restaurant. The rooms are very small and crowed. My wife liked it but... More

A very short and simple menu--no omelets or fussy dishes--but the scrambled eggs were creamy and flavorful and the rectangular flat biscuits were light and flaky. The bacon was the best I've ever had--seriously. The restaurant is in an old plantation house, so you feel as if you are in a family's home, which adds to the charm of it.... More
