A modern yet, cozy atmosphere, great, consistent food, a polite, well trained staff. We are always amazed, when even a new server, Like John K. is so knowledgeable about the menu and quick with recommendations.Like much... More

This was our first time at Second Street but we will be back. The menu has so many wonderful sounding options, it was hard to make a choice. The onion rings were great, mixed green salad was fresh and the blue cheese dressing had huge chunks of blue cheese. The bread was warm an crusty with a tender inside. The... More

The restaurant had been recommended by a local and was very busy when me and my wife arrived for dinner. We were told that the wait would be 20 minuets but had to wait for over 40 while other patrons, who arrived after us, were seated before us. A few commented on how strange it was. I love burgers and... More

My fiancé and I visited this restaurant after being given a coupon by the concierge at our hotel. The menu appeared to be slightly pricey but we decided to give it a try.

One of the best deals is the fixed dinner option - a selected list of appetizers or soup, entrees and desserts. There are even upgrade options. The Chesapeake Paella was an upgrade option and was very good although the was a little too much andouille sausage.

We came into Williamsburg and wanted a good meal. We got several recommendations for Second Street close to our hotel. The atmosphere was pleasant and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. They had a good selection of 3 course meals. I had delicious lasagna and my husband had a great hamburger. One of the best things about our experience was... More

We wanted a local restaurant with great food and great reviews. Second Street provided that and we had enough for seconds at home. I had the Bison Meatloaf for the First time and my wife had steak. I would highly recommend both. We ordered from the 3 course menus The shrimp, main course and berry crisp all turned out to... More
