Priced Right

After a long day exploring the Yorktown Battle Fields we needs a place to eat and went to the Yorktown Pub. Good price for and drinks with good service. Mussels were great and the fish special was also very tasty. Compared to the other options close by, this was very good value.

Wanted to experience the atmosphere and glad we made the short drive from our place in Williamsburg. Beautiful scenery on the outside, especially at sunset. They were busy as they were hosting a wedding but we were seated quickly and our waitress was very attentive. My husband enjoyed his seafood platter, kids liked their meals as well and I enjoyed...

Visiting with coworkers from out of town. A variety of seafood was ordered - served hot and fresh. Nothing spectacular, but nothing unusual either. Decent variety of beers and beverages. No one had dessert. Crowded - wait staff was so busy that it was nearly impossible to get anything once your initial order had been put in front of you.... More

Busy pub so maybe the staff were overstretched but the service was somewhat peremptory. The fish and chips was good and plentiful but the dessert was a little dry. The a.c was chilling to the point of discomfort.

Stopped for lunch here with a group of five. Was very busy and had to wait a bit. That really was no problem as they were slammed! Once in our drink order was quickly taken and then served. Good sized portions at a reasonable price. You won't leave hungry. Very well run establishment. They get you in, served, and the... More

The food and service is great. The view of the river, beach and ships are breathtaking. I understand that this establishment is also favorably known as "The biker bar".

This is a wonderful pub. They have some of the best crabcakes I have ever had. My husband had the osyters and they were excellent too. The service was good. The only issue with it is, it is rather noisy. That is the only reason I didn't give it a 5. That is not really a big deal, beacuase, hey... More

This is a mixed review as I really enjoyed my lunch but my husband not so much. I had a fried softshell crab and it was wonderful. He had a scallop sandwich with fries. The scallops were extremely good but he said the bread was the worst he's ever had. He mentioned that it tasted like it had sawdust in... More

Yes, it's loud. Yes, it's crowded. But excellent foot and service make this a great local establishment. Took recommendations of our server (crab dip appetizer, lump crabcake, broiled scallops) and were not disappointed in the least. Nice variety of local beers topped off a nice evening at Yorktown Beach.
