The name of this restaurant caught my eye so we decided to check it out. We are glad we did! The Shrimp Po'Boy was excellent. Large shrimp with just the right amount of spiciness. The serving of Pot Roast was large and as advertised "fork tender". Our waitress was delightful and kept our glasses filled. If our travels bring us... More

Whenever we are in Williamsburg, we try to eat at least one meal at Food for Thought. The menu always contains numerous good options at affordable prices. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The portion sizes are generous and the staff makes sure it is exactly what you ordered since there seem to be options on almost every dish.... More

Food and beverage here is very good, but the theme and a very involved, aware wait staff take Food For Thought a step beyond most other restaurants. Definitely listen to waiters suggestions. Highly recommend.

We arrived for a late breakfast and had a short wait for a table. We ordered and occasionally the waiter would say that our food would be right out. 1 1/4 hours after we were seated I sought out the manager/owner and complained. Our food came out soon after and was lukewarm and mediocre at best. The owner comped us... More

We had the best waiter ever, suggesting things we might enjoy. I had thepot roast that you could cut with your fork. He kept our glass full of ice tea, and checked on us witnout being intrusive. The crab cakes were full of lump crab and not filler. Dinner was a delight including the dessert with 2 spoons.

Met some friends here for breakfast at one of their suggestions. Was my first time and am already looking forward to going back. They offered a lot of healthy choices and a big breakfast menu with a lot of variety. They had a lot of what I would call fancy or specialty items but at good prices. They have fresh... More

Food for Thought is a must for dinner every time we visit Williamsburg, about three times a year. I am not a big fan of grits but the Shrimp and Grits at F4T is outstanding. My wife is a vegetarian and always finds lots of great menu options.

I reviewed past reviews of this restaurant. I was looking for best restaurants in Williamsburg area. I ordered Silron steak and Crab Cake with two sides all are made fresh from scratch. The owner always go to visit each table to make sure they are satisfied. I will return next year it is once a year to visit Williamsburg.

Owner is amazing and it's reflected everywhere in this local establishment. They take pride in their diverse food as they well should. Never a disappointment, always flavorful and perfectly cooked and accommodating to everyone. And I mean everyone. Even your allergic to everything, except for gossip and complaining, aunt from out of town.
