We had just visited the Yorktown visitor center and were looking for something to warm us up on a very cold day. We stopped at the Yorktown Pub and asked about the chowder. When we were told that it was New England style, we both ordered a bowl. It turned out to be some of the best clam chowder we... More

Stopped in Sunday afternoon and had a great time....college basketball on TV, great selection of beers and one of the best crab cakes (their Jumbo Lump) that I've ever had. It was crowded since it was right across the street from the water, but for great food in a fun place in Yorktown, this is where I'd go. Noisy, but... More

On our visit to Yorktown, we decided to have lunch where the locals eat and we were not disappointed with the Yorktown Pub. It was packed on this day, but they found room for us. I had the daily special of Clam Strips and my wife had Calamari which was the most tender deep fried sea food that we ever... More

This very popular spot is plenty busy but has good service and good food. It is a great setting but rather a noisy place. Lots of locals enjoy it.

On a cold winter's day, when you walk into the Yorktown Pub, you feel like you're home. The place is comfortable, welcoming, warm and right on the Yorktown River. Even as tourists, we were made to feel like regulars. Our server was wonderful and very helpful in helping us choose our selections. The food is great: yummy fresh oysters caught... More

We love visiting Yorktown Pub. It is very family-friendly and quite popular so would try to go at off-peak times. Their friend fish is heavenly. Their French fries are excellent. And their grilled scallops (which I recommend adding to any entree) are fantastic. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and we will return every time we visit williamsburg!

We stopped at this location for lunch while passing through Yorktown. It's a busy little bar with a warm and cozy feel. The Hush Puppies were huge and delicious. We really loved them! We also enjoyed the Crab Cake and Jamaican Jerk Sandwiches. They offer a Boars Head Horseradish Cheese which was delicious. The French fries were frozen and just... More

One of the best burgers I have eaten in a long time. They are HUGE. I learned my lesson the last time and split one with my husband who also got a side of chili which like the burgers was really delicious. It's kind of got a biker bar feel but it's not really the staff is really friendly and... More

After waiting over 2 hours to be fed -- only to get cold food -- at another local restaurant, our group walked to the Yorktown Pub. I am so glad we did pick this place. The food was great, the atmosphere was nice, and Crystal, our waitress, was so friendly. She immediately waited on us, and our food was delivered... More
