We had just finished going through Jamestown Settlement. We were a little tired and hungry. We asked an employee in the museum for a recommendation in the area. She said their own cafe is very good and has the best fries around. We decided to try it. We were well pleased with our choice. The had an excellent variety at... More

Recommend the BBQ over cornbread - delicious. Hot and cold foods plus variety of sandwiches. Very clean and spacious. Good value.

The food was good and the service quick. Lots of choices. The portions were large (at least to me). I couldn't finish my meal of hamburger and fries. They do have smaller protions for those with smaller appetites or kids.

We drove by and turned back because we were so hungry. Inside is a bit dated, but the waitress was warm and friendly. The food was outstanding. Be sure to save room for dessert!!

What you would expect from a cafe in a tourist attraction. Food was ok, service was ok. But the location was excellent. About the only available place to eat from Williamsburg to Historic Jamestown.

I must admit that I wasn't expecting much, but I was blown away. I got the bbq brisket with cornbread dressing. Yum!!! The place was clean as well

We visited the Jamestown settlement and decided to grab a quick bite to eat before we headed back to Colonial Williamsburg. We both ordered the stew and were quite impressed with its tastiness.We had tried some at another location, which was a stand alone restaurant and supposedly known for it's stew, before we visited and it wasn't as good.

No handicapped assistance was provided. We had some juice and fruit after the long hot trek outside. It was clean but did not have a large amount of options.

We stopped in with my parents for a quick lunch. All of the selections were great and the pricing is very reasonable. Highly recommended.

I don't know why the state has a concession with this restaurant. Either the managers are inept or the owners don't care. The queue is outrageous and long. It's confusing where to go or which station so people all pile up at the first one. And the food is less than standard cafeteria fare.
