Very nice lunch

Five of us had a very nice lunch. They do not take reservations for lunch but we had only about 30 minute wait, around noon, on a very cool Monday in late March. Our server Raymon was very efficient and friendly. I had their famous peanut soup, which served hot and was very good. I also had a... read more

Although a tad expensive, the King's Arms Tavern takes diners right back to 1770. Some of the dishes are modern but others, such as the peanut soup, go back to colonial days.

I took my fiancé to tour colonial Williamsburg and we ate a late lunch. The food is always good. We were told it would be a 20 min wait. It only took about 5 min. Gabriel was our waiter and he was great. Been there many times before and am sure will be many times again.

This tavern has become synonymous with holiday celebrating in my family. We come every year to celebrate and enjoy the beautiful decorations. The tavern has great atmosphere with candle lit tables and a fire blazing. We always enjoy their cocktail menu; their mint julep is one of the best we've had. From the dining menu, you can't miss the peanut... More

Though pricey, the taverns are a great place to have a special dinner. Each tavern has its own specialties, so menus are varied. In March, King's Arms was the only one open - but it was great, as usual.

We were with friends at Williamsburg and had a wonderful time. This place was no exception: we loved the decor and the experience of being in such a pretty tavern. However, I don't remember seeing a kid's menu. I'm pretty sure there wasn't one. There weren't a lot of choices and what was there was fairly expensive. I'm allergic to... More

From the time we entered until the time we left, we were in the 1700's. The selection of meals, drinks, entertainment and staff, was excellent. It was a very enjoyable evening.

This was our second visit to the King's Arms. We had lunch there a few years ago and this time went for dinner. Our lunch visit was delicious so we were looking forward to a dinner here. The service was perfect, our server was delightful and had great timing. Three of our four meals were disappointing. One was very cold,... More

It's "historic" food; clearly they make a ton of it. It was fine, we were hungry, but it's nothing to write home about. Had a turkey sandwich and some chips.
