This lively, animated bar and grill was a great way to start our stay in Williamsburg. Coming in out after a grueling 3-hour drive through a storm and downpour, we were greeted warmly by the manager, who took time to chat and recommend specialties of the house, although the restaurant was packed (power outages elsewhere in town!). Lots of tempting... More

We experienced a great meal in this wonderful restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised to have a gluten free menu. The pimento cheese with gluten free sweet potato chips was delicious. The crab corn chowder was also delicious. Our server, Amy D, was absolutely the best. She was very knowledgable about the gluten free menu and was a joy to talk... More

My daughter and I have Celiacs disease and Second St. has an extensive gluten free menu. The pleasant dining choices for other members in our party never disappoints. Last Sunday night, we had an exceptional waiter named Cody--he was able to keep up with our undisciplined group, get our orders correct, and anticipate our needs--all with a smile!

Excellent experience and food! Cody was an amazing host, will be back and will be asking for Cody to serve my family and I.

We were in Williamsburg for a short stay. We decided to try Second Street because of their gluten-free menu. The food and the service were great. Our waitress, Holly, was very friendly and accommodating!

Went there on a Thursday night and the place was packed. We were told it was a 45 min wait so found a place at the bar and ate there. We started out with appetizers of pork shanks and shrimp and they were awesome. Dinners were meatloaf (combination of bison and veal) very flavorful and a huge portion, steak- very... More

Something for everyone from burgers to gourmet tastes. Friendly and top flight service. Call 30 minutes ahead to put your name on table list. We have tried other places but keep coming back here. It's hard to top this.

We stopped in for a drink and found a pleasant bar area. We ended up talking to a very nice woman who worked for Williamsburg magazine and gave us lots of great tips for our next few days. We didn't try any food but the atmosphere was nice and bartenders friendly.

We were in Williamsburg for a long weekend, and we had a mediocre and expensive dinner at one of the Historic Taverns in Williamsburg. We were hoping to have a better experience for the next outing, and boy were we glad we decided to go to the Second Street Restaurant. The restaurant only takes reservations for parties of 8 or...

Whenever we go to Williamsburg we go to Second Street because we enjoy the food so much. My husband and I went on a Saturday night in March and didn't expect it to be so crowded. Unfortunately they don't take reservations but we didn't have to wait too long and were seated in a section of the restaurant that was... More
