lunch after Yorktown Battlefield

Great place to stop with the family for a quick bite. We were there mid-week right at noon and there was no wait. Huge portions!

I do not really expect much in the way of food from a pub on the beach and I wasn’t disappointed. The fish was not very fresh and the baked potato had that several day old look and texture about them. It is probably a good place for drinks and appetizers but I would not recommend dining there.

Don't be fooled by the way this place looks from outside. The wait staff is more than friendly and makes you feel at home immediately. Nice variety of food and good assortment of nice, cold beer.

We were visiting Yorktown and were looking for a lunch place - we saw this but it wasn't too impressive from the outside. I read the reviews which said get there early, so we tried it and they were right! There was a line outside the door by the time we left. Good food, friendly service and a view of... More

If you are in Yorktown and want a quick service and solid food this is for you, but given that you are in a tourist area the prices are higher. The crab bites are very tasty, dinner portions are ample and filling. Staff is friendly

The Yorktown Pub was our choice because of all the local cars parked out front. Besides that, we love to visit small diners instead of the bigger touristy ones. This one was right in the middle of what we normally choose. There were four of us visiting Yorktown and at the Pub. Between us we ordered the mushrooms, fish and... More

Stopped in for a quick drink before doing a sunset sailing cruise. Was getting pretty busy around dinner but it's just off the beach. Ordered some hushpuppies to hold us over. Took a little longer than expected to get them, but just asked for a box to go and enjoyed them as we walked to our destination. They. Were. AMAZING!

Visited the area mid afternoon on a rainy spring day. Saw the pub and stopped in for a beer and appetizers. Very pleasant and nice atmosphere. Our table looked out on the water. Decent beer selection, good seafood appetizers. The place was packed that day due to rainy weather but the service was quick and very good. Gorgeous area. Will... More

We thought we could go on a douple date outing. We had our seven month son and the other couple had there three month daughter. Once we got there they told us there was a wait which we didn't mind but once we were seated we wait 15 minutes for someone to come and take our drink orders. After that... More

Yorktown pub is a quaint place with a nice nautical theme, and cold beer. Disappointing beer selection, great crab dip, and good location balance out to an average spot. Certainly worth visiting and dropping in for a pint!
