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!

Came on Sunday morning, to our surprise we got seated immediately. We were seated in the front room, which has a lot of natural light to enjoy. The service was excellent. The menu very diverse. Our order came very quickly, and each item was excellent: a vegetarian egg benedict, fresh blueberry pancakes, and one vegetarian delicious omelet. Fresh OJ was... More

Food For Thought is a small restaurant specializing in "Home style food" and they do a great job of it. Their Shrimp and Grits are a local favorite in Williamsburg. You will enjoy everything on their menu. The service is prompt and the atmosphere is also down home nice.

Good place to go for vegetarians and vegans. Have eaten here several times .... sometimes good food and other times .... not so much. It's on the main strip and seems popular with the tourists. My husband and I live here but we don't eat here often.

Wonderful food and a great menu that offers something for everyone including great vegetarian meals and meals for meat lovers. There is usually a wait on weekends so plan ahead! (Worth the wait though!)

Always looking for something with a different twist and this was the place. Ordered the funky beet salad with chicken and loved it. It was entrée sized and my wife kept stealing from me. She ordered the Thai One On and loved it and I kept stealing bites. The description says "spicy" and it had some heat. This is a... More
