May be fine for the tourist crowd who are under the mistake impression that this is a fine dining establishment but .... I've not had the same experiences that other reviewers have had and now I'm beginning to wonder if it's me? Came alone (as I am wont to do), asked to sit at the bar, and was not waited... More

We've been going here at least once a month for the past year. With the exception of one disappointing dessert, the meals have always been great! Friendly service, and they are accommodating of children (at least at lunch). The hot chocolate is amazing. Save room for dessert!

When we returned to Williamsburg, we didn't have specific plans for lunch. We were walking through town deciding what to do when we walked by Blue Talon and thought it looked intriguing. Boy are we glad we stopped in. What a fantastic lunch. To start, service was outstanding! Louis our server was charming, polite, attentive, and efficient. The atmosphere was... More

We stopped in for lunch and I ordered the hamburger with egg on top and my husband had the blackened fish reuben sandwich. Wow, the hamburger was one of the best I've ever had. My husband really enjoyed his fish also. We returned a week later and had the mac and cheese and chicken mushroom crepes. We enjoyed our meals... More

The Blue Talon is the place to go for a casual, comfortable but interesting meal. The mussels are excellent and the chacouterie is hard to pass up and that is just for starters. The main can be as simple as meat loaf or more elegant with duck or scallops. There are a couple of tables outside but the most interesting... More

One of the best brunches in town. Located in Colonial Williamsburg, this place is a gem. Always crowded and for good reason. French press coffee, delicious breads and pastry, and huge platters of food. My daughter loves their mac and cheese.

MY wife and I ate here for an Anniversary Lunch. The Expansive and Unique menu was very good. The variety allows you to try a different thing each time yo go back. Highly Recommended!

Great place to meet friends for a good time or just to have dinner out on an ordinary day. Atmosphere is always upbeat! Many special events to entice you to come out, if just for a bottle of wine,
