Run, do not walk here!

I was in town for a Girlfriend's getaway with 4 other friends/family. I am the foodie of the group, so I was in charge of picking where we would eat the whole trip. I picked 2nd Street for our first meal in Williamsburg. It did not disappoint! Our waitress was Lacey & she provided excellent... read more

On a quick family trip to Williamsburg, we decided to give this place a try. The menu looked interesting online, so off we went. The food was delicious, the tuna appetizer was a HUGE portion and so yummy! We also had the Thai Shrimp app, equally delicious. Our server, Cody, was fantastic throughout the meal.... we would have enjoyed our... More

We always enjoy visiting Second St. Very friendly, great food. But when we visited recently I was surprised ( no, shocked!) when the bill arrived and I realized I paid $17.00 for a Belivedere Martini. I've never paid that much and won't be ordering mixed drinks at Second St again!

Get the rack of ribs (pork, smothered in Midwest style BBQ sauce) but come with a good appetite. The crab cakes are mostly filler; acceptable though not exceptional. We did not sample the carrot cake, which is a signature dessert; a big slice in the refrigerated cakes looks very tempting.

What a great menu! I had a difficult time deciding because so many things sounded good. I chose the tuna and almost asked to substitute the wasabi mashed potatoes. That just didn't sound right! I'm so glad I didn't. They were delicious! The atmosphere was perfect! Our server was great and made us feel very welcome.

What a great meal we had at the Second St. Bistro! Cody was our server and he sold us on the Thai Shrimp appetizer (delish!) to start. We finished the meal with a piece of cheesecake which was so moist and tasty. Thanks again for the great recommendations, Cody! Our meal was one of our best yet for this trip.

Nice place but way over priced. Was recommended as a family-friendly restaurant but you would go broke here.

We went for a family dinner. Called for reservations and was told to call back 30 minutes before we want to come which we did. Still had to wait 20 minutes once we got there. The chips and cheese appetizer was very good. One of our party has a food allergy so we asked for the New York strip steak... More

Cody was awesome. Got everything we needed in a timely manner. Food was delicious. The appetizer was kinda small for the price but overall very good.
