The king's arm does it right! Unlike Many other places where one can dine in a place only decorated in a particular theme, this place had waiters and waitresses who told stories, player and sang music from the 1700s, and served us food inspired from that time period. The Pickled watermelon was unexpected and delicious, the hunter's game was a... More

Almost picture perfect dining in historic surroundings enhanced by candlelight. The layout allows a romantic privacy and service was very good. More atmospheric than fine dining but well worth the effort.

We ate at the Kings Arms Tavern and the food was average. Nothing to get excited about, but you can't beat the history and experience of Colonial Williamsburg. The restaurant wasn't terrible by no means, just not the best food we ate when we were in Williamsburg.

We where traveling through the area to head to Yorktown Battlefield saving the Colonial Williamsburg Experience for another trip and figured we would make a stop in for lunch.

We love Kings Arms. We have gone there for both lunch and dinner. We particularly like the colonial Virginia menu. The minstrels add to the colonial flavor and are definitely part of the fun.

Convenient location, no reservations for lunch. Colonial atmosphere, excellent food with great service. The wait staff is pleasant, efficient and knowledgeable. Reasonably priced considering location and atmosphere.
