Great place for lunch

This is a nice pub on the York River. We very much enjoyed our lunch there. Good beer, of course, and a delightful menu of appetizers and fresh seafood, among other things. We had a fresh flounder sandwich and a fried oyster sandwich; both were excellent. Fast and good service. Nice atmosphere. We sat at a high top along the... More

While staying in a B&B in the area, a guest recommended the Yorktown Pub for lunch. After driving down the Colonial Park Highway we ventured into Yorktown and a visit to the Pub. I had a bowl of New England style clam chowder and it was one of the best chowders I have had in a long time. I then... More

Lovely relaxed vibe and delicious lump crab cake. Good kraft beer as well. Really nice if you're looking for an informal setting patronised by lots of locals.

The pub seems to be a locals' hangout as well as a tourist stop. Food is good and they have a couple of good local beers. The jerk chicken while not traditional jerk was very good and my wife says the crab cakes were as advertised; not a lot of fill but real crabmeat. And all reasonably priced.

What you see is what you get. This is a good place to have a beer and a good bar meal. The burgers and sandwiches are good. The seafood is fresh. It is what it is. A Pub! Biker friendly and good service. The staff is very friendly.

This restaurant is a nice place to stop for a break from riding to get a beer or soda. The food servings are large but the quality is lacking lately. I suggest to eat somewhere else.

This is local haunt for many of us here in York County and on the Penisula of southeastern Virginia. Located on the shore of the historical York River in Yorktown it gets it's fair share of tourist in addition to "coasties" from the nearby Yorktown Coast Guard Station. The beer is cold, the food is good and fairly priced. The... More

We are frequent visitors to the pub. It is old and run down (forget the bathrooms) but the food is good and the price is right. Get there early on the weekends or you'll have a tough time squeezing your car between all the motorcycles. This place has charm and a lot of character, well worth stopping by for some... More

The Yorktown Pub is a very good place to relax and unwind while visiting Yorktown. The waitstaff is very friendly, the food is good (especially the crab cakes), and the beer is cold. It is located across from the beach, so you can walk off your meal.
