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.

It's pretty much what you'd expect. The prices are a little higher than a fast food place, but not unreasonable. They offer a fair selection of food. I got the cheese quesadilla, which was better than I thought it would be. My mom got the BLT(they toast the bread and add the bacon, you put your own lettuce and tomato... More

If your going to Jamestown and not on a strict budget plan on having lunch here. Prices were reasonable not much more than a Burger King and the food was much better

We visited on a hot July day and this cafe proved to be a wonderful place to have a nice cool lunch. Food was good and there was something for everyone.

Turkey. and we also got some corn bread and some fries to go with our sandwich's. The sandwich's were pretty good. The guy making the sandwich's wasn't very nice. I asked... More

Do you enjoy being yelled at when you choose a seat in the wrong section? How about having your $15 meal be made entirely of pre-made foods that taste like they've been soaked in old grease and warmed up in a microwave; oh, right--that's because they have been! For only $75, you can treat your party of five to a... More

A fast lunch with hotdogs ar Jamestown Settlement Café was not bad at all. Don't expect high quality, just good food for an affordable price.
