great healthy vegan options

Came here 3 times over 3 days on a recent trip to Wburg. I was traveling with a friend who is vegan. The food was solid. The staff had different levels on training on what is and is not vegan. We did have one server who was spot on with her knowledge of how to alter the orders so they... read more

On recommendation from our Hotel front desk staff, Eileen, Migdalia, Daisy and I set out to feed our starving appetites with crab cakes being my focus. We had no prior seating reservation and so waiting 45 minutes and provided a courtesy taste of mushroom stuffed with crab meat only left us salivating. Our meals were absolutely delicious, the staff courteous,... More

The lady at the local Peanut Shoppe recommended this restaurant. We had a 30 minute wait to get seated. They were very kind by bringing around a hors de vows while you waited. Parking is very limited. Additional parking was two doors down. The immediate neighbors are so friendly (not) that they will have your car towed if you park... More

Stopped in after shopping, and what a wonderful surprise! The food and the staff were amazing. Went to eat with two kids, they loved the food. Mom and Dad had the pot roast & meatloaf- AMAZING!

This is truly a must for travelers looking for great food while In Williamsburg. Service is superb and the food is so very good. Dishes include meatloaf and mashed potatoes, baby back ribs, pot roast, salads, even vegetarian and vegan dishes. All this is homemade and original. Breakfast is a treat if you like "made from scratch" pancakes. Our family... More

We all loved this place. Such great food and service. We have some picky eaters in our family and this satisfied all of us . Great portions. Wish there were more places like this where we live. Call ahead because this place is busy but worth it!

First, let me say that their pot roast and meatloaf (The Family Reunion)...out of this world tender and tasty. Almost as good as my moms and late grandmother's! My wife and I had a great dinner and were fortunate to find a parking space at the right time (5pm). A short wait to be seated, but it was worth it.... More

Ah-mazing, fall off the bone ribs!!! This was our second visit to Food for Thought and I would have to say that it was just as good as the first. The atmosphere and food is great! The fun table talk games they have on their tables make waiting for and having dinner much more pleasurable.

Food for thought Very impressed with this restaurant. Service was excellent . We had a 30 minute wait on Friday night and an employee came by with free appetizers for everyone waiting. Once we were seated the waitress came right over to the table and our drinks were there with wonderful rolls in a matter of minutes. Our meal was... More
