I reserve my 5's for those special places. While this almost qualifies, it just didn't knock my socks off. However, the food was fantastic and the service perfect.

At first, we were a little disappointed as this restaurant is located off the road and not a fancy decor as advertised. Yet, we were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. Best was the tuna steak.

I was wondering if my husband and I had made it to the right place, based on the discrepancy between some of the reviews of this place and our own experience. The food was really only okay- my husband got the salmon and ravioli and it he salmon was kind of dry (frozen, maybe?) and I got the smokehouse burger,... More

We're bar people. Have been to Second Street many times and yesterday was not a disappointment. Took my son this time. Introduced him to the Thai Shrimp appetizer and the Second Street hamburger. As always, both were good. A couple extras at Second Street is that they start their happy hour at 11 a.m. and they have quite a few... More

The salmon was perfectly cooked and Cody was a great server. Our table was never ignored and every need was taken care of.

Excellent good and great service. We get to Williamsburg once or twice a year for golf and always make it a point to stop here for dinner. Casual atmosphere but great eclectic menu. Try the Panko breaded shrimp appetizer. Be sure to ask for Cody who always makes great suggestions and provides excellent service.

We were looking for a place without kids on our first night in Williamsburg. Love kids, but needed quiet. Sat in the bar and had appetizers. Friendly staff, great service and good food. Loved it so much we went back 2 days later. Delicious cornmeal fried chicken and veal pot roast, as well as Thai shrimp appetizer. What can I... More

Given the reviews and the rating of this restaurant, we were disappointed in the overall experience. Great value but mid-to-lower on the quality scale.

I will return on my next visit to williamsburg. My husband and I dined at Second Street and we were utterly impressed. The smell of fresh baked cookies and warm smiling faces as soon as you step in the door was the perfect start to our dining experience. There was a bit of a wait when we arrived at 6:30... More

Second Street was a very pleasant surprise for my wife and myself on our most recent visit to Williamsburg. For years we have struggled to find some places in Williamsburg that were not geared towards the tourist trade and did not try to recreate "colonial" fare. Second Street filled the bill nicely. It is nestled in the woods, somewhat off... More
