Fun Colonial fare

Good food and entertainment from Colonial actors. If you enjoy history this is the place to spend a few days. We purchased a 3 day ticket for $29. In February. Weather was sunny and seasonable. All homes and shops had wood fires going.

We had dinner here one evening - food was okay but not great, except for the meringue dessert which was excellent. One member of the party did enjoy the popular peanut soup. Much of what is on the menu doesn't strike you as being typical for the 1700s in America, however, The real reason to go is of course being... More

First time at the King's Arm Tavern for dinner and loved it! The tavern has two floors and several rooms. We were seated in the main dining room (recommended if going with someone special). It has very nice colonial décor and the candle light makes it extra special (plus a violinist). The food is good and plenty! Make sure you... More

The potential for this restaurant is amazing.......That being said, we had a pretty fun experience, I was hoping for more acting from the servers though. They were nice but they just acted very routine and didn't make it extra special. The peanut soup is awesome and the bread and "condiments" that they serve before the meal is a nice touch.... More

Except for our last visit to Williamsburg in October, (we ran out of time) we always eat lunch at the Kings Arms! I love the food plus the servers. Some I recognize from year to year. Have you ever had Peanut Soup? If you haven't then please try it. I start off my lunch with it and get a Scrub.... More

Romantic atmosphere after dark with the candles and quiet conversation, just beautiful. Food was good and the chef emailed a recipe request the next day.

I have been to King's Arms Tavern at least three times, and have enjoyed each visit. I love the Colonial outfits of the waiters/servers, the food tastes great. I love the candlelight.

Service was fast and they stayed in character the whole time. Reservations might be good if you have a large party since they were pretty busy. Food was VERY good. Some of the best roast I have had in a long time and it was a huge portion. I will be going back in March....
