My wife and I just ate here while wandering around old colonial Williamsburg. The atmosphere is in an old 1700s home converted to a tavern and restaurant which gives it a lot of charm. The crab cake sandwich was awesome. My wife had the turkey sandwich which she also enjoyed. Do ask about some of the exclusive micro brews that... More

Part of the Williamsburg family of restaurants and well located inside the property. Limited selection and very expensive- Think of it as historic Disney fare without the expertise. Peanut soup needed a lot of salt to be palatable. Fried chicken for $15 consists of a wing and a breast and a thin slice "rasher" of ham. Broiled tomato half dipped... More

Strongly recommend Kings Arm for lunch.... quite a nice quality meal accompanied by very nice staff... all in character and the 1770-1780's pricing was very reasonable given the lunch menu and the "entertainment"... have fun

We ate at three taverns during our stay and this one had the most ornate and upscale ambiance. Our server James was great and the food was very good. Try the Hunter's Game Pye--duck, rabbit and venison combined like chicken pot pie in a wonderful crust.....I was a bit nervous to get it as I had never had rabbit and... More

Stopped at the King's Arm Tavern for a late lunch while visiting Colonial Williamsburg. The tavern is decorated as a historical colonial inn and the staff are dressed in "period" dress. We were seated upstairs and immediately our waiter began to address us as if were were in the tavern of that area. The stories and the theatrics were all... More

We were greeted with all smiles from the wait staff while being serenaded by period music at the door. They gave us some pickled food from the period that were good. The portions were big and very tasty. The history of the building and time period was very interesting.

Excellent food and wonderful service from Marty, who gave us many historic details about the tavern. Strolling musicians added to the ambience. Pricey, but worth it!

We dined in candlelight only! The atmosphere was dark, but appropriate, as we walked back in time to the 17th century. We were serenaded by gentlemen in period clothing. The servers were dressed in colonial era attire and remained in character throughout dinner. They tied large napkins around guests necks to protect their clothing, as was done in the 1,600... More
