We at at King's Arms with a large group of several families. The service was quick and accurate even though we had kids sitting away from parents and couldn't have been the easiest table to wait on. Our server made recommendations for some of the authentic fare and explained things well to us and to our teenagers. The food was... More

You are whisked away to Colonial times when you dine at the Kings Arms Tavern. You are seated in a reproduction of the King Arms Colonial Tavern, complete with candlelight. Your server explains that your meal is one that would have been served during the Colonial period. Every selection of on the menu is delicious. There is ample food. You... More

On our way to the Capitol, we stopped for a late lunch and they quickly found room for our party of 6. The food seemed authentic and was VERY tasty. I enjoyed my Kings Arms Ginger Ale and I got a taste of my wife's brewed on premises Root Beer -- Both were well above average. The big winners of... More

If you're looking to complete your day in Colonial Williamsburg, fine dining at the King's Arms Tavern is the way to do it. This colonial themed restaurant has numerous appetizers, entrees, and desserts from the period, as well as live musicians who stroll around and play folk songs on violins and flutes. You'll even learn something before you leave. The... More

We visited with our two young girls and found the experience to be fun and interesting. Lunch does not require a reservation, but dinner does. I reserved months ahead through opentable.com and there were quite a few times booked up already. You can view the menu on the website and it was up to date. Be prepared for a good... More

Not only does the whole reenactment of the debate over what to do about dealing with the British by a host of characters in period costume happen right out front of this eatery, but it extends inside, too. The menu consists of items which would have been consumed back then and is explained and presented beautifully by servers appropriately dressed... More

Spent the morning walking around Williamsburg and thought we would try here. Had a party of five and it was during the prime lunch period so we had to wait a bit but not real long. Once inside we were greeted quickly and seated. Water came fast. Server was super knowledgeable and competent! Drinks came super fast and once we... More

With a 7 and 10 year old in tow we were unsure how attentive or appreciative the kids would be at this historic tavern. Well between the awesome waiter teaching my son how to properly store his fire arm, to the history lesson about Irma the house ghost, fiddle player that went from room to room AND a re-enacter going...
