Fried food had an off taste like the oil was old and used for everything. For the price, better was expected.

As reported by fellow reviewer, ARL2601, this is a classic road-side diner, with a sit-down counter, booths with juke boxes, and sassy waitresses bringing your meals. My sister particularly enjoys the blueberry pancakes and the porridge. On another recent stop for lunch, I went with a Ruben sandwich that was terrific. The staff is terrific and friendly; the food is... More

Home style food in a traditional diner. Don't be put off by the exterior! I found them in an ad on a map, claiming to have the best shrimp and grits in Williamsburg. I don't have a basis for comparison in Williamsburg, but it was the best I've had in a long time. Nothing fancy, just plump shrimp, andouille sausage,... More

This place was close to our Powhatan Resort, less than a mile, so we thought to give it a try. It's small inside, but has character. We all got burgers, they were great & more than enough..we should have shared. Place serves breakfast all day & has awesome a la carte choices. I think they close at 3, so get... More

This little diner on the edge of Williamsburg would remind you of the old time diners that are small, where you can look right on to where they're cooking the food, and the service is quick. My friend and I both ordered the special, which included 2 eggs, a pancake, bacon and coffee for $6.99. Everything tasted good and they... More

We are frequent visitors at Five Forks. The food and service are always consistently good. It has a neighborhood feel, where you are recognized and welcomed by the waitstaff, all of whom are very good at their jobs. The cooks put on quite a show of competence while flipping burgers at the grill. Everything comes out fast and delicious. One... More

Great food for breakfast. I got the Greek omlette. It was very good. Service was good. We had four adults and two kids. At first we did not want to go in because of the way that it looked on the outside, but we tried it. Our breakfast food was very good. Wait staff were friendly to us. Service time... More

Loved the food and the service was excellent. 2 of us had the burgers and both loved them. This was the best burger that I had in ages, done just as I asked and juicy. Hubby had the beef liver and he said it was good. Chicken, wild rice and mushroom soup was excellent.
