Liked the whole ambiance of the restaurant. It takes you back to the 18 century. Dinner was delicious and drinks were great as well. We loved the guitar player that goes around singing 18 century music, it was a great time.

Loving the Williamsburg taverns as part of the experience, we visited the King's Arms Tavern during our visit. The atmosphere was excellent as always with candlelight and antique style furniture. Our view out the window toward the Raleigh Tavern was beautiful. Our waiter, while being extremely professional, offered little of the Williamsburg tavern experience and never smiled. While being an... More

This place is more about the ambience than the food. We went for lunch and waited in the line outside for about 15 minutes, the same as predicted by the hostess. We were seated in a small building in the rear that only holds four tables. The service is friendly and our waitress was charming and very talkative. Try the... More

At first glance of the menu things may seem a little bit more expensive than going for fast food. But, once you walk through the door it is all worth it. We have had lunch and dinner here. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Excellent food and service. You get transported back to colonial times while dining. It... More

The place is historic and truly something to see. The staff was friendly and informative. The ambience was authentic. However the food was not so good! We both were very disappointed with the quality and taste of the food. I am convinced my dinner was a Marie Callender's frozen entrée. We paid more to eat there than anywhere else. We... More

The pot roast was good, the fish special was bland, and the pasta dish was soupy and flavorless (not even salted definitely not as described). The pecan pie seemed to be pre-made (one of those machine produced crusts). They have live music and candlelight (hence the 3 stars). I would recommend skipping this restaurant.

My wife and I have made this an annual anniversary splurge. Food is alway excellent and things you won't typically find just anywhere. We do have to "save up" for this treat, but well worth it. Food, atmosphere, entertainment (live period music) and, servers never disappoint.
