Good food

The breakfast was good, hot and served quick. The service was very slow. The place needed a cleaning but the grits made up for it. They have the best grits

Well were were here today and while waiting for our food 2 families got up and left. The food was good but they really need to give the dining room a really good cleaning. The one left because the guy waiting on them was trying to be funny but they thought he was rude. He was a nice guy and... More

The restuarant is dated. It almost appeared to be a time-warp to the 1960-70's. The food was OK, but nothing great. Portions were slightly small and cook time was slighhtly long. Perhaps the intention is to allow families to talk, rather than a quick service meal.The prices were a little high but not bad in a tourist town. Service was... More

My family of 4 recently visited Mama Steve's, and we all loved it! To start off, the atmosphere is very old fashioned, but cute. All of the employees dress up in colonial type clothes, which you do not see too often! I ordered the blueberry pancakes, which were delicious! If you do not want a long wait for you food,... More

The menu was a paper placemat, I'm ok with that. I mention it because it says they've been in operation since something like 1967. Apparently nothing has been changed since then. Sides of the table were sticky and black with grease & grime. Service was spotty at best. Bathrooms were in tough shape. Glimpse of the wait station inside the... More

When we walked in we were immediately taken aback by the 1960s diningroom (as in not renovated since the 60s) but that was ok, I love Mom and Pop places. The coffee was worse than instant, the staff was SO unfriendly so it really set the tone for our 7 a.m. breakfast. There was no one in there under 70,... More

The service was great and food delivered hot and quick. A bit pricey but generous portions. The wait staff dress in colonial attire. The restaurant is neat and clean. Everything was great.

This is not where you want to start your day. The food was average at best, unfortunately the service was even worse. I wish I could tell you it was reasonably priced but alas this IS a "tourist trap".

If you're ever in the Williamsburg area, stop by Mama Steve's. Family run by a very friendly staff. Food is good, too.
