The assortment of fresh fruit was incredible. The smoked salmon had all the accoutrements one would want. We didn't place an order at the omelette station, but I'm sure they were good. The only complaint is that the eggs benedict on the buffet had been resting in the warming tray too long. The English muffin beneath the egg could not... More

We vistited here again Christmas Eve as is our tradition. It has always been a wonderful experience and we were not disappointed. We asked to be seated in Reggie's section and were treated to excellent and exceptional service. We never lacked for anything with Reggie or any of the staff at the Regency. The food as always was 5 star.... More

Its hard to get it all right but at the Regency room they did. If you see value in excellent food, excellent service, a quiet dinner of elegance and a dance floor to spin your wife around on then this is a bargain. If those things don't matter to you and you buy your food in bulk, then try the... More

My wife, son, and I arranged to dine at the Regency Room for a Valentine's Weekend Brunch. The prepaid brunch (tax and gratuity included) consisted of several buffet stations and a choice of three entrees. The Regency Room is located in the historic Williamsburg Inn, Williamsburg's premier hotel. Although this isn't a review of the hotel, it is a beautiful... More

Many Williamsburg tourists stop by the Williamsburg Inn just to get a glimpse of the Regency Room. The dress code has changed to “country club casual”, but the majesty of the room itself requires me to dress in a more formal manner. The wait staff now wear a dark suit and tie in lieu of tux, but the service remains... More

A group of 5 had lunch at the Regency Room just after Christmas. 3 people ordered salads and the other 2 ordered the buffet. While the food was good, the very, very slow service ruined the experience. We waited over 1/2 hour after ordering for salads to be brought to our table and that happened only after we asked several... More

Please accept my sincere apologies for the disappointments you shared and experienced in the Regency Room during the Christmas Holiday. It is evident that our usual standards were not met and I would welcome the opportunity to speak to you further, if you could contact me at your convenience by calling 229-1000 and asking for the General Manager of the...

Having experienced the classy elegance of the Regency Room, I can think of no better place for a special occasion dinner. Our anniversary evening was highlighted by outstanding service, excellent food, and a wonderful piano player who filled the air with both Christmas music and old favorites. The menu has plenty of choices and the Regency has won awards for... More

44th Wedding Anniversary Dinner. It was wonderful. This is a dressy restaurant with over 90% of the men wearing jackets and ties. No denim allowed at night. Women were all dressed beautifully. A trio played for your dancing and entertainment pleasure and were not overpowering. The menu includes Pork Schnitzel, Seafood Medley, Salmon, Halibut, Pasta, Crab Cakes and Venison when... More
