We chose this restaurant because of their gluten-free menu. My husband and I both had the shrimp and grits! It was absolutely delicious!!! The waiter was not as attentive as we would have liked. He never brought my soup and then did not take it off the bill (which we did not discover until later).

We had a short wait but found space in the bar for a cold one. We got to our table & were impressed by a large menu. If you can't find something to eat here & not love it your not hungry. We had pot roast, baby back ribs & lots of sides. The manager/owner was doing a great job... More

My family and I went to Williamsburg for Spring break and were looking for a dinner stop after a long drive. I saw the reviews on this place and was excited to give it a try. We decided to go early around 5pm and I am soooo glad we did, because by the time we left (6pm), it was packed!... More

The wait is seriously no joke. On a weekday we waited an hour plus and it seems to be an everyday occurrence. That being said there is usually a reason for this kind of crowd and this was no exception. The menu was unique and left us upset we couldnt order and sample more than we did. The food and... More

Very busy entry area but plenty of space at the bar! The Thai One On dinner was very good!! The decor is fun and there is lots to look at. Beware, you might have to park at the Ripleys museum a couple doors down as the parking lot fills quickly!

As locals we were exploring a different location for dinner. I usually do not go to the tourist row of restaurants in town. TA reviews motivated me to give Food For Thought a try. We were pleasantly surprised at the diversity and quality of food. Pros: >We tried the mussels appetizer,. but wanted it in marina sauce (on menu with... More

We called and had our name on the list and still waited 40 minutes for a table, but it was worth it! Food was really good! Prices were moderate/high and the waitress was really nice. Definitely true what the reviews say!

Last year we ate here and did not like anything about it. We decided to give it another try. We sat at the bar this year and had a lot of fun talking to people and watching the final round of the Master's Golf. The food was also very good this year. The portions were a nice size. Last year... More

This was a fun place to grab lunch. It was also very entertaining how they have the cards on the table to keep you busy. The food was good with a variety of choices.

This is a Mom and Pop restaurant and is worthy of your support when you visit Williamsburg. There are the usual dozens and dozens of chain restaurants but this one is Local and different. Food is good atmosphere is nice, not rushed and loud. Try it! Break the chain!
