Walker's Dam Grill (sounds not nice) is a fantastic restaurant at Walker's Dam, on the Chickahominy River in Lanexa. Located at 1428 Outpost Road at the ROCK-A-HOCK campground. We were 4 couples who went from Williamsburg, Virginia (about 15 Miles) on a Saturday evening. As always, the evening was perfection. I requested Veal Oscar (not on the menu) and was... More

We recently visited Walker's Dam Grill for dinner. This is one of my favorite local spots. Casual atmosphere and delicious food. My favorite dish is shrimp primavera. Shrimp are large and fresh.. Plenty of food. The veal is excellent and the pizzas! Garlic knots are served with a fresh salad.

The service we had wasn't the best, but it looked like the other wait staff was more friendly/attentive. Our waitress acted like we were bothering her and she avoided us when she was walking right beside our table. The stuffed mushrooms were amazing, but I wish you could have tasted the crab since it was a bit scant, but they... More

We were on a road trip to North Carolina and needed a place that was not "fast food" to stop at. Many places were actually closed this Sunday night, and we were having a struggle. This place parallels the highway, so really only takes you off course by about 15 minutes, but the trip takes 25 minutes from the exit.... More

We went for our friends birthday. We all thought the food was just ok. Nothing to brag about. Not horrible either. The best part of the visit were the people that worked there. All very nice. Would not go back.

We ate here again tonight because of their great Italian food and their Wednesday night dinner special - 2 entrees and an appetizer to share for $25. We love this place because all their items are fresh and plentiful. Garlic bread "knots" and salad served family style to start. Our party shared the egg plant and crab foccacia appetizers -...

I had heard about this restaurant and it is near family, so we decided to give it a try. The salad was served family style and was fine. The bread, garlic knots, was delicious. We also had a side of bruschetta, which was good. The menu was extensive and we went on a Wednesday, which is the 2 for $25... More

This is literally a 5 star food in a 1 star location. Now don't get me wrong being located on a campground is one thing, but the ambiance gives you the feel of a high school lunch room too. My wife and I came in this place with a suit and dress just by viewing the menu online alone. Also... More

Having just moved to the area we were interested in checking out the locals eats. My son found Walkers Dam Restaurant and it is our new favorite. We didn't have reservations so we sat out on the patio overlooking a beautiful lake/dam. We enjoyed watching an osprey feeding her babies. It was a spectacular view. The food was very tasty... More
