My husband and I visited the Second Street American Bistro on recommendation from the Rodeway Inn in Williamsburg, VA. The atmosphere of this upscale restaurant was very nice. Our server/waiter was Cody. He was awesome. He was very helpful, energetic and did everything he could to make our meal very good. He was very willing to give us suggestions. I... More

Our server Cody was a friendly and excellent server. The restaurant smelled great as we walked in. We had never been there so this was a great sign. I had the chicken and biscuit which was delicious and my husband had the worlds greatest grilled cheese which lived up to its name. Highly recommended.

Food was just okay - nothing special and there was way too much of it. The menu description seemed more imaginative than actual meal. None of the ingredients seemed fresh - highly processed, wilted lettuce. Saw nothing to ever return for in the future. Convenient parking - which can be a plus in Williamsburg.

We had dinner at Second Street last night and it was absolutely fabulous! I called earlier in the day to see if reservations were required since it was the 4th of July, and was told no reservations, but they did call ahead seating. So I called about 20 minutes before we wanted to eat and we were able to walk... More

We read great reviews online and had some local friends suggest for lunch. Had dinner on July 4th and it was GREAT. Atmosphere, food quality, service was all wonderful. Our waiter, Cody, was excellent. We listened to all of his suggestions and LOVED our meal. Thai Shrimp: yes! Baby Back Ribs: absolutely! Carrot Cake: Best we've had! Thanks Cody and... More

Great food and wonderful service. Every entree was great and the wine selection to match. Saw lots of locals there, so we knew we had made a good choice!
