Group night out and since they are now open for dinner, decided to give them try. Different then menu lunch and was pleasantly surprised. I had the shrimp and grits. Delicious! Grits were creamy in a Cajun sauce that was not overly spicy. Carrot cake was moist and well worth the calories. Others had the Steak Diane that they enjoyed.... More

We were a party of 12, and most of the group enjoyed their lunch immensely. They raved about the chicken salad, barbeque sandwich, salad plate. I just had dessert, and the carrot cake was wonderful. An array of cakes, pies, and bread pudding are displayed as soon as you walk in, and it was a hard decision to choose. Everything... More

Two of us were curious to see what this new location was like, and arrived at 12:20 on a Wednesday afternoon. Even though we were told that there would be a 15-minute wait, we were not seated until 1:10. After about ten minutes we started talking to two ladies at the next table who had been waiting a long time... More

We've been dining at Carrot Tree restaurants for the past 15 years, and we anxiously awaited the opening of their newest location in Williamsburg. They exceeded our expectations in every respect--menu selection, quality of food, presentation of food, friendly and professional wait staff, and beautiful decor. We highly recommend this excellent new Carrot Tree restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and now,... More

My husband and I had heard so many good stories about this place and had enjoyed it in the previous location, so we had to try it. Unfortunately, it did not meet our expectations. The restaurant itself looks like a sad student hangout, with stark yellow walls and bare floors. There is almost no decoration whatsoever anywhere in sight. The... More

If you're in the national park visiting Jamestown then go to the convenient carrot tree cafe there at the park. Since there isn't much on Jamestown island to eat it saves you a lot of time by eating here in stead of returning to Williamsburg . It's around 7-8.00 a plate but the flavors are good and almost everything is... More

We stopped for lunch. It is a very casual place, nothing fancy, so din't expect a tablecloth or non-plastic dishes. The menu is small: a few appetizers and sandwiches. The quinoa appetizer and the hummus were tasty, but the spanakopita was dry and doughy. We did not try the deserts, which looked better than the main courses...

Inexpensive, down to earth, excellent food. Currently lunch & dinner. A large number of selections on the menu. We've eaten there 3 times, Generous servings. Food preparation sometimes on the slow side (we waited 40 min for an order of waffles and pancakes). Excellent desserts, also to go.

Read and re-read the menu 4-5 times before I just went with the burger. Trust me, it was not because I was not hungry... The burger arrived dry with a hard crust, almost burnt. The rest of the meal was meeeeh. I do recommend the bakery and desserts, since the Cowboy Cookie was the saving grace to my lunch experience.... More
