Looking for a great place to eat, found it! The staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. We all shared the beet salad, it was very good. We would always come again!

Stopped in for dinner at about 8pm on Thursday. Only had to wait a few minutes for a table. The trip advisor reviews were spot on! The food was great and prices were very reasonable. Highly recommend!

One of the few places that have vegan options in Williamsburg. Not only did they go out of their way to make sure my meal was vegan but they took special care of my nephews peanut allergies. The staff, chef and waitress were all fantastic and the food was amazing.

Family vacation in Williamsburg with twin 10 yr old boys. They loved it and so did we. The portions were great and tasted homemade.

I asked a person that lives locally where to get something good to eat that isn't too expensive, and he didn't hesitate in saying Food For Thought. Everything we had was great. We especially loved their ribs, pistachio chicken and their mashed potatoes. Their menu is unique and there is something on it for almost everyone. We didn't eat there,... More

They have an extensive menu from seafood, steaks, ribs, chicken to Gluten Free bread and pasta. My daughter requires Gluten Free and was very happy with her Gluten Free Pasta dish. I had shrimp and My son-in-law had a Vegetarian dish. We all liked what we had. They have a call ahead seating option and I recommend it because this... More

A fun atmosphere with great food. Lots of different choices all of excellent quality. We had a vegetarian meal, fish, meat and a kids meal and everyone was completely satisfied. Good beers too. The staff is friendly and efficient. Reasonable prices too. Warning, it is a popular place so you will have to wait at least 20 min. Worth it!

Nice place to eat, fantastic food! The corn/sweet potato bread is addictive! They have cards on the table to promote conversation and discussion. My teens loved it!

Several friends recommended Food for Thought when we asked for restaurant suggestions while planning our Williamsburg trip. It did not disappoint. We went on a Friday during the lunch hour. We had to wait maybe 5 minutes for a table. The staff was very friendly and efficient. I ordered the portabela mushroom sandwich (sorry...I don't think that is the official... More

The food was excellent! We had the quinoa and lentil burger with vegan avocado mayonnaise and french fries! Many vegetarian options which are difficult to find when visiting Williamsburg. Our kids had cheeseburgers and enjoyed them! Prices were reasonable for the quality of the food! We will definitely go back before the end of our trip!
