“Best breakfast ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The food is only outshined by the incredible waitstaff. The fresh pastries and muffins almost melted in my mouth. There was always a special selection on the buffet. I especially liked the sweet potato pancakes and the french toast. They actually amke their own granola which you can have on cereal or in fresh berry and yougart parfaits.
Mike R was our professional and friendly waiter. We were so impressed after the first day we made sure to ask for him every day. We did not have the chance to have dinner in this beautiful dining room with crisp linens and roses everywhere, but we will next time.

“Better than Last Year”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We meet several family members at the Regency Room in the Colonial Williamsburg Inn for the Christmas Breakfast Buffet. After our experience last year (see my previous review), I thought we’d never comeback, but it’s a 35 year tradition and my in-laws were not going to miss it. Fortunately, this year’s experience was much, much more enjoyable.

We arrived at 7:35AM, and were seated by 7:45AM – they had not opened when we arrived. Our server was a wonderful lady named Patti. She made up for the really bad service we had last year!! She never allowed anyone’s coffee cup to get empty, not their juice glass. She was prompt in removing used dishes and trash from the table. Patti was very friendly with our group of nine and engaged us all in conversation throughout our meal.

The food was much better this year. The eggs tasted fresh, the coffee was among the best I’ve ever had, and the bacon was crisp without being over cooked. All of the fruits were fresh, as were the breads and other cooked foods. We all enjoyed our meal and look forward to next year.

“Overpriced with spotty service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This room should be the best in Williamsburg, but...like so much in town, it is disappointing. The food is good but not great - and that makes for unhappiness when you get the stiff bill. This is all a shame because the room is beautiful. Service is very spotty...probably a result of the fact that much of the staff has been there for eons and seem to be just marking time.

“Classic Southern Hotel Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Spacious, Jacket Required, Dance Floor for weekends, live music, and a platoon of servants. Decor is classic with low light in the fanciest hotel in Williamsburg. The inn is beautiful inside and out for Christmas...white lights and greenery. Food was excellent with a comprehensive wine list. We got a bottle of Pinot, oysters Rockefeller, crabmeat Randolph, and the beef tenderloin. Very tasty and traditional. Bill came to 200 so pack some greenbacks...the inn has a less formal restaurant down the hall that looked like fun and was less pricey. All in all an experience worth having.
