From the moment we entered, we felt we had stepped back in time. The service is friendly and informative. The food was delicious!

upon visiting Colonial Williamsburg, we had lunch here in order to get the full tavern experience. I had a salad and my companion had the vegetable pot pie. I had the ginger ale and she had root beer both specialty drinks and great! I would definitely recommend!

The food took me back in time to my grandmothers cooking. The only issue I had was the smell of horse manure. It's really weird trying to think about eating while smelling horse dung. But it was an unforgettable experience that I'm glad I had.

During our visit to Williamsburg we decided to eat at Kings Royal and was seated in the private quarters in the back where Jefferson made important decisions. A good time was had by all. Food and drinks were very good. We had a great time.

Whenever we travel to Williamsburg, VA my restaurant choice is the King's Arms Tavern. The signage was not very helpful on the way in to find parking. I know we are in a Colonial Period community, but a few better placed signs and lights would help. In fact, it was so 'dark' a bus driver nearly hit a woman in... More

I had the vegetable "pye" and my husband had the chicken pot "pye". Both were just ok, and ok for lunch. Hard to find the chicken in the pie. The vegetables were... More

Kings Arms is one of several theme restaurants in Colonial Williamsburg. If you order food and a drink expect to pay about $50 per person, which is about the same as the other theme restaurants on the property. We ordered several different dishes and they were all excellent. The menu wasn't particularly large but it had enough selections for us.... More
