Trust your server! Try the ribs!

Went in for dinner after an 11 hour drive from Maine. Couldn't decide on the meal so Holly suggested the ribs and I took her advice with the ribs with the crab and corn chowder. She was SOOOOOOOO right! Dinner was excellent as was the staff and atmosphere !

It is evident that this restaurant aims to please it's customers. From the moment that we stepped in the door to the moment we left, we felt special. Each of the dinners for our party was delicious. Our waitress, Kristy, was incredibly wonderful in every way. She was aware of our needs, served us well and helped us to feel... More

FANTASTIC! We're from out-of-town and went to 2nd St. Bistro around 8:45 pm on a Saturday evening. Waited for about 15 mins for a table --- had a great cocktail from the bar while we waited! --- and the food AND service was AWESOME!!! You must order the Onion Rings -- to die for!!! Also, we had the French Onion... More

After spending all day walking around Colonial Williamsburg, we wanted a restaurant out of the tourist trap area and this was suggested by our Concierge! We called ahead and arrived within 15 minutes and were seated immediately Inside on the porch at 6:15. Soon afterwards, they had a wait list. Recommended to call ahead and they will put you on...

Great atmosphere and very good food. Some waiting for a table despite many open. Worth the visit as we do when we are in the area.

Spent all day touring the Colonial sites so we were looking for a nice place to have a relaxed dinner but somewhere that wasn't overpriced or stuffy. Second Street Bistro met that objective. Prompt, attentive service and very good food. We enjoyed an inexpensive but very nice bottle of wine from a local Virginia winery which is something we enjoy... More

Great food, great service. One neat thing they do is that they have water in old wine bottles, and will leave one at your table - just looks elegant. This was our last dinner before we came home, it was a great way to end our vacation. Desserts were to die for - and HUGE!!!

We ate here with our 2 well-behaved children, 6&10. We were immediately seated, but the overall service was a bit slow. We tried the country sample platter as an appetizer. It was great and different than the usual. I had ribs and my husband had steak. It was really good food, despite a long wait for our meal. I would... More
