Great location

This pub has a great location, close to the Victory Center in Yorktown along the river. Great food and atmosphere. Have eaten there several times, but the Reuben is my favorite.

Nice place. Grab seats with a water view. They have tons of great beer. Come early... Very noisy crowd.

The weather just got nice when we got there. It's one big room, across from a little beach area. The waitress was friendly & also let me try out a couple beers before deciding. I ended up going with Washington's Porter- which was pretty good. I just had a simple BLT but it was a good one. Definitely a cool... More

The food was average. Had the 1/2 entree fish fry. Wait staff was very nice. Kids menu limited, like every where else. Not many vegetables to be found.

The first time I ate here was one of those crappy grey days, we all have them. I decided to leave my husband behind and go walking on Yorktown beach. Then remember this pub from the Fourth of July. It was packed and the food smelled so good so I had to try it! Best choice of the day. It... More

They were very busy, so there was a short wait, but tables were cleared quickly. The menu included typical lunch selections as well as plenty of seafood. The crab cake was huge and delicious with lump crab meat and nicely seasoned. All of our meals were good and reasonably priced. Service was fast and friendly. Parking is limited, but it's... More

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.
