Lunch!

After a long morning of walking around we were hopeful to get a table at 2pm for lunch knowing they closed at 2:30pm. We were greeted with a smile and got a table within a few minutes. Lunch menu is limited but fine for us. I had the beef sandwich and he had fried chicken which we agree mine was... read more

What a great atmosphere to travel back in time! We had the beef and game pye. During our dinner, our server took our napkins from our lap and draped them across our necks. She stated that we needed to look like we belonged back in the time period.

The atmosphere is truly authentic, and the servers were all dressed in period costume. The severs were knowledgeable and efficient. Our food however, was not very good. The salads were very large and quite tasty. We ordered the prime rib and it was overdone and tough. Definately not worth the cost. The roving musicians were a nice touch. The wine... More

Overall it had a great atmosphere with a colonial singer moving from room to room. The lunch menu could have been bigger with more choices. It only had 4 entree choices. The food was overall good with no wait on a Fri at 1pm.

The food was superb. The staff was dressed in colonial garb. Wait staff was knowledgeable for the era. Pricing was through the roof. You must make a reservation.

We had high hopes for this restaurant and chose it instead of other taverns offered in Old Williamsburg. It was alright, but I think I would try a different one if I had to do it over again. I ordered the traditional peanut soup, wanting to be authentic, and was not a huge fan. Husband and son ordered beef options... More

We stopped for lunch during our tour of Williamsburg. This was a cute air conditioned place. The sandwiches were good, shepard's pie filling and soup homemade. It hit the spot.

Last week, I arranged a dinner for 20 at King's Arms Tavern in Historic Williamsburg, scheduled for their private dining room upstairs. When we all assembled, we discovered that one great friend could not make the steep stairs. Within minutes, the staff cleared another room on the main floor, set it up, and seated us all, without a pause. It... More

The food and ale were excellent. What I really enjoyed was our server who has long experience in Colonial Williamsburg.
