I had lunch here while touring the historic grounds. I loved how the menu is supposed to depict the time period. I hope they don't lose that focus. The fried chicken was crispy yet meat was juicy. Other items on the menu sounded delicious. I also had the pecan pie, wonderful! Service was attentive. If I were to visit this... More

The Kings Arms staff serves in colonial dress. They give the history of the tavern in colonial times. The food is expensive but terrific. I recommend the game pye.( rabbit, duck, venison, currants and a flaky crust) Bring your appetite if you get the pye as it is large.

Always great food and top notch service in a unique colonial atmosphere. Not inexpensive but well worth it for the food and the experience.

The price was reasonable and the wait was not long, I liked that the wait staff would describe the meal and desserts and kept the fantasy alive as to where we were. Loved the strawberry merangue icecream

What a wonderful time! The atmosphere is absolutely fantastic here! Everyone really made you feel as if you were dining in colonial times! The food was fabulous, and we were even serenaded by a patriot on his recorder! The glow of the candlelight made for a perfect, romantic, New Year's Eve evening!

It is over priced. A $60 sandwich lunch is a little crazy. You are paying about $10 per person for atmosphere. We have been to other Colonial establishments with better value - City Tavern and Dobbin House to name a few.

We enjoyed a breakfast here on 12/30/14. The breakfast was awesome. There were so many different tastes between the food and drinks. It was well worth the $$ for both of us to enjoy it. It also helped to start us on our trip back in time.

While the cost of the food was more than I would spent, the company picked up the cost and chose this place. The food was excellent. I would have preferred more light while eating, but it was a period restaurant and there weren't electric lights then. If you have nothing else to eat don't miss the vanilla ice cream!! I... More
