It is true when they say they have been voted the best burger. Amazing burgers! They are not the cheapest but certainly the best any in our party ever ate. The sides were also amazing with bacon in the potatoe salad making it so good. Almost impossible to have room for dessert but we took carrot cake and chocolate cake... More

My parents and sister came to town to visit and my husband and I and we decided to go somewhere new (we've only lived in the area for 2 months). We chose Second Street and we were not disappointed at all!! Mike was our waiter and he was so nice and pleasant. He was very patient as we found ourselves... More

What a find! Host & Hostess were very welcoming! We were offered a sample of fresh baked cookies while we waited, delicious! Great atmosphere, wonderful décor! Struck gold when we were seated in Holly's area. She went above and beyond, answered all our questions about the menu, the restaurant, and the area. She appeared before we needed anything and was...

This is our very favorite restaurant for any occasion. We're locals and had always received excellent meals & amazing service. Ask for Holly's section. She's the BEST waitress we've ever had at any restaurant.

Second Street is fantastic. The menu is chock full of yum. I'll have to go back and try everything I can't eat in one sitting! Had the Smokehouse Burger cooked perfectly as I requested. One of the thickest, juiciest burgers I've had in a long time. Home Run, steakhouse quality. Everyone else's dishes in my ptay looked delicious. This is... More

Need to get away from 3-cornered hats and old stuff? Give 2nd Street a go. Really good contemporary food and conscientious service (Thanks, Clinton!). This is a locals place that is easy for the touristas to find. If it's a nice day/evening, ask for the patio and pet the koi. OK, so, the koi don't really like being petted they... More

We had excellent meals and outstanding service! Our waiter, Mike, was very attentive and friendly! We ordered steak that was incredible. My husband had ribs that fell off the bone. My son had a kids' pizza that was huge. My daughter had chicken fingers and mashed potatoes that were great! I highly recommend the 2nd street bistro!

On the recommendation of a friend who had been to Williamsburg many times, my wife, two children, and I chose Second Street for our last dinner in Williamsburg. The local institution lived up to its reputation. The dining room was full when we arrived but we were offered a table in the "casual dining" section--high tables near the bar. We... More
