Apparently if you don’t have a reservation then you will be faced with great debate with whether or not you will be seated in this establishment. My wife and I wanted to eat at an authentic tavern. It was between King’s Arms Tavern or Josiah Chowning's Tavern. The menu of King’s Arms offered much more flavorful dishes. Upon entering the... More

Nice attraction restaurant -furnishings, wait staff, & food authentic of the colonial period. They even through in some historical tidbits of information as food for thought. We were with a party of approximately 50 guests, the service was quick and staff attentive. The menu is rather limited but has something for everyone - I had the Pot Roast which was... More

We had dinner here and could not have been happier. It truly continued the colonial experience. The waitress explained the role of taverns, answered all of our historical questions, and had us tie our napkins in the "colonial" way. A strolling musician played period pieces, and a "dance teacher" stopped by to invite us to a "ball". The food was... More

My hubby and I came here for lunch. He had the fried chicken and I had the beef dish. Super tender beef, flavorful juice! They give you some dinner rolls and they are a great help to soak the beef juice and eat. The chicken was tender and well seasoned. Great choice! Oh! And their wine cooler was awesome.

Atmosphere was GREAT... Staff very accommodating and food average... I wouldn't go back but the experience was neat though... Favorite thing about this was dated period music at your table and staff dressed...

Unlike most attraction restaurants - this one actually had good food! The tavern itself is set-up as it would have been in colonial times - which gives a great ambiance to the meal. The service was excellent. Not only was our server very attentive, but my son asked another if she could fill up his water bottle for him -... More

We went for dinner and spent $100 for two adults and a child. I am okay with pricey when the quality is there, but the food just wasn't good. Our waiter was good, but we wouldn't go back.

Food-Authentic 17th century bread recipe starts the evening off great. Good Prime Rib plate and Pork Chops plate. Potatoes were very good and the vegetables were well cooked. Atmosphere- Very good! I truly enjoyed the walk through Colonial Williamsburg to get the mood started. The staff are dressed in period clothing, and a flute player accompanies the dinner experience and... More

This restaurant is pricey. the food isn't the only adventure in this restaurant, though. We enjoyed the colonial musician who explained and played the different instruments. The story teller guy was entertaining, too, and he greeted each one of us personally...right at our table. The waiter explained colonial customs. The food was good. My son ate the meat pie with...

When we arrived in Williamsburg late in the day we headed for the visitors center, purchased our tickets for the week and checked out the dining options. This was our first visit, so we decided to make a reservation for the King's Arms Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg for the following night. The Tavern is a reproduction of the original 1770's... More
