We ate here as it was lunch time when we arrived and figured we should eat before heading out to see the settlement attractions. We ordered the deli sandwich's. 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.

For a tourist destination the prices and flavor were pretty good surprisingly. I expected a $10 per person meal that was flavored like cardboard. What I got was a good meal at about $6 per person. No complaints at all. Even the coffee was pretty good.

We were very impressed with the quality of the food, the wide variety of choices available and the cleanliness of the restaurant, despite serving hundreds of people on tour a day. There were plenty of healthy choices as well as kid favorites! We had Black Bean Veggie burgers that were just delicious!

We stopped for lunch during our visit to Historic Jamestowne. I did not expect much for this meal, as it was basically a cafeteria. I was shocked at how good the beef brisket was.

Good food with many options for vegetarians. The jalapeño corn bread stuffing was yummy! I also has a black bean burger. Friendly staff and reasonable prices.

They have a reasonable selection of gluten-free items. The have a cafeteria style service. They prepared items including salads are at the end. We thought the selections were reasonably priced and...

The staff and food were wonderful. A good little spot to stop and grab a quick bite. You can dine inside or outside by the river. If we go back to Jamestown , we will definitely eat here again.

Thank S. M
