I can't tell you how taken aback we all were when we walked into Second Street Bistro.... it was a a disjointed, bizarre, mixture of things that did not go together.... the decor didn't match the chair and none of it matched the music playing and the whole thing was like a scene out of the Twilight Zone where you...

We had such a great experience at 2nd street! It was my first time but my fiancé had dined here before. John K. gave us excellent service from the moment we sat down! He was knowledgeable about the menu and answered all of our questions promptly and confidently. John checked on us frequently and made sure everything was made to... More

We have eaten here for lunch and dinner. We've sat in the bar area and main dining room. Have only had good experiences and great food. Only thing to watch out for is the crowds. It's got a great reputation so it's usually crowded. The chicken lettuce wraps are delicious and a great value! Enjoy!

There is just one problem with Second Street - we live 500 miles from the restaurant so a monthly trip is just to far to travel. Last night's meal was ever so delightful. THE lasagna is so good. The meal size is great for both a wife a a husband. Don't forget the ice cream sundae and a cookie before... More

Some eateries are this, some are that; Second Street is all the above. From classics like burgers and steaks to more artful creations like a butternut squash salad and poppin Thai shrimp there's something for every palette here. Hearty goodness in a relaxing atmosphere with attention that strikes the balance between home and office. The luncheon choose 2 items and... More

Many things were sold out (we got there late) but beyond that the food was ok. Burger was decent. Wild rice salad was very good. Service was decent. You can tell they are busy and they know they are busy so service and everything slides slightly when they know there is a steady flow of business. The food was not... More

The best burger in Williamsburg. Cooked to order and done to perfection. The beet terrine with goat cheese was one of the best presentation and salads my wife has had. Sat outside on the patio.

My husband found this restaurant here on TripAdvisor. We loved it. The food was phenomenal. Our waitress, Maddie, was so polite and friendly. She gave some great recommendations too! We had he onion rings, soup, burgers, lasagna, and pizza. All were amazing! Try the desserts, you won't regret it. Can't wait to come back!

We have come to Second Street several times, and we have been more impressed each time that we've come! Siera was absolutely wonderful with us and all of our questions. She recommended some delicious meals that we very much enjoyed. The drinks were also made well. Every time we come down to Williamsburg, we look forward to coming here! Can't... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch based on the reviews. We arrived when they opened for lunch (11:30) and by the time we left it was very busy. The restaurant area was loud and could use some sound dampening. The outside area was nice and bar area large. The waiter was very animated and extremely helpful, he made us all... More
