We had lunch here during our visit and I have to say I was underwhelmed. Especially since we had enjoyed a fabulous and tasty lunch yesterday at the Museum of the American Revolution cafe. This was more what one expects of museum cafes. Nothing special...and not the best prices.More

Reminded me of school canteen. Over-priced and underwhelmed. $4.99 for small bag of chips!!! Ham salad sandwich could have been anything, mushed up with mayonaisse totally tasteless.

My wife and I stopped in here to have some lunch while visiting the Jamestown Settlement. The food was good for what we wanted - just had a couple hot dogs and tried the peanut soup.

It’s a lunchroom but you can get a fresh sandwich. They had quite a few things to choose from. Indoor or outdoor seating. A place for groups, etc.

It was a hot & humid day when we landed in the cafe around 1 PM. I had a beer which was nice with the weather. We ordered fish & chips. What I tasted there was something I have never tasted in my 78 yrs....Extra crisp fish that you literally have to cut or bite . Very tasty. & thoroughly enjoyed The waitress also was sweet.More

After encountering lots of fried food at other places, this place was a fine. Lots of variety in offerings including some regional specialties like Brunswick stew. Choices were reasonably priced.

To be fair, I didnt expect much from a cafeteria style cafe in a museum, but this was good. They had several selections from deli sandwiches which my husband got to gluten free soups which I got. Looked like they had pizza and chicken fingers...and that sort of thing too. the Chicken Chili was really tasty. My husband enjoyed the Reuben sandwich but passed on his peanut soup which looked like thin peanut butter and he said it tasted similar to that - very rich. Good service and good food for the price.More

There is something for all tastes here- deli, grill, pizza, etc. There is "kid food" as well as variety for the adults. Staff was friendly and willing to make special preps for food allergy.

After a morning touring the settlement we were ready for lunch before heading off the glass house and historic site. I had brunswick stew and a salad, both of which were good. My granddaughter had a grilled cheese, which she actually ate. Thought it was...absolutely fine for what we needed that day...convenient, clean, decent food, not outrageously expensive.More
