Good food; wish they had better kid options

Had lunch here in the middle of a long day of sightseeing. Excellent adult lunches, but kid options were in short supply. Our 8 year old son opted for pita with cheese. (Melted cheese on top of pita bread.) A little overwhelming. Desserts of carrot cake and chocolate cake were wonderful.

We came here with friends for lunch on a busy Sunday afternoon and had to wait a while for service, but the wait was worth it. We sat outside where there was more room and you can people watch. The inside was a little small. The menu provides choices for every taste. I had the Hogg Island BBQ which was... More

This was a delightful surprise for lunch after our tour of Yorktown. A nice light lunch sitting outside with delightful service. We both opted for the 3 salad plate--chicken salad, ham salad, and pimiento cheese on fresh greens. We so enjoyed our lunch on a warm day.

Wonderful artisan sandwiches! The perfect outdoor lunch on those days when you have nothing to do but look out to the water. I particularly like their carrot slaw. The only negative is that on days when it is too hot, there is not nearly enough indoor seating. It's too popular.

We love their sandwiches and of course the carrot cake! Their carrot salad is terrific. We like to get orders to go for an impromptu picnic!

This cafe is completely worth the visit for food. The carrot bread cream cheese sandwich is their signature. However, the staff can be a bit short and unpersonable. They are a highlight of Yorktown waterfront as far as a cafe. Their Williamsburg location has friendlier folks to serve you. Food is very good either location. You should go if you... More

Me and my husband enjoyed our food very much. This was on the Riverwalk and we chose to eat inside because it was very hot outside. I wish they had more dining in area because it was a very small place but they were more than nice and the food was exceptional for a quick lunch.

The folks at this location are nicer than the other location that's in the old motel. I'll give them that. The sandwiches are good. Not as many desserts offered here as there are in the Dale House. If you want to sit inside, good luck! Very few tables. There are some outside tables if the weather is pleasant. They grudgingly... More

The food at this place is homemade & delicious! I have loved every single thing I have eaten here! Their sampler plate is so good! And don't forget the carrot cake for dessert...it's amazing!!! Enjoy!

After having tried all of the restaurants in Yorktown the Carrot Tree Restaurant is by far the best value. I base this on the quality and quantity of the food, the price, and the friendly service. The only people that won't like this place are the ones that don't like any place. :-)
