We came with daughter, her husband, and the 2 YO. A little upscale for the 2 YO, but he handled it pretty well. We had a coupon for a free appetizer, and the Thai Shrimp ended up filling the bill. Huge and tasty. A sweet teriyaki sauce that complemented the light breading. My Mediterranean... read more

Our family of five had the pleasure of eating at Second Street while on vacation in Williamsburg this week. The burgers lived up to their reputation as 'Best Burger in Wilmington' and the cajun catfish was delicious. All of the food was fresh and the homemade ranch dressing was incredible. In addition to the delicious food (and beer selection!), our... More

I went there with a group of friends. We were basically making a meal of appetizers. The service was friendly but the food was nothing special.

I am not big on fancy food, but this place was pretty good. I had their shrimp tacos and was pleasantly surprised. My only down fall was that they won't let you have a highchair at a booth. But everything else was great!

I read reviews for this restaurant and then it was recommended to us by locals and it didn't disappoint us. My husband and I shared a drop dead wonderful appetizer of crusted shrimp mixed with a spicy sauce served on top of red cabbage. We could've eaten another it was so good. We then shared a huge 'portofino' salad. With... More

This was the first meal that my wife and I had upon coming to Williamsburg. I wanted to say that we made the right choice. The meal was fantastic and the wine selection excellent. The bartender also made a perfect dirty martini but the best part of the meal was the service. Our waitress Robin was the best ever. her... More

The food is excellent and priced very reasonable. I had a meatloaf dinner and my friend had the Fried Chicken Dinner. Both were excellent. In addition we had the baked chips with pimento cheese dip and 2 glasses of wine. Our bill was only $58. I was shocked for all the food that we got. The dining area is very... More
