My wife and I had just arrived in Williamsburg and wanted a late lunch. Our concierge suggested Second Street. Great choice. Although busy on a Sunday afternoon, we were seated in a short time; less than 10 minutes. Our server, Billy, was very attentive and efficient. Our meals arrived in a timely fashion. My only issue was that I ordered... More

We went here for my cousins birthday. The food was absolutely delicious and the service by John K was outstanding. I'd recommend the baby back ribs, Thai poppin shrimp and the cookies.

After an event at Colonial Williamsburg, we asked SIRI to find a restaurant. That led us here. Very nice place. Good décor, comfortable seating, really great food, not pricey. Server John K made the evening. Attentive but not intrusive, personable, great recommendations.

We always make at least one trip to 2nd Street. This time we made two trips! John K provided us with excellent service! The food, as always, is excellent!

Our first time here--stopped in after "The Illumination" at Colonial Williamsburg--and thoroughly enjoyed it. The restaurant is conveniently located with easy parking and pleasantly decorated. John, our waitperson was personable, knowledgeable and efficient. We started with the Brussels Sprouts grilled with bacon and drizzled with balsamic--really outstanding--then shared a duck/pumpkin pizza, and finished by sharing the excellent chocolate tort. A...

I came in with 3 friends last night afier a night at Busch Gardens. We did not get there until after 10pm and restaurant closing at 11PM. Our server John K was very accomodating and personable in his service from beginning to end. The food as usual was delicious and I would recommend this place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner... More

We were looking for a place to have a relaxing diner, what we found was much more. The dining room was very delightful and our meal was a match. Our server John K explained a special price fixed menu which was more than adequate. We each choose different main courses, salmon and chicken. The meals were well prepared and well... More

We went for dinner. We ordered from a special prix fixe menu with an excellent selection to choose from. I ordered the salmon. It was cooked perfectly and nicely presented. John K was our waiter. He was well acquainted with the wine list and menu. He did a great job taking care of us.

My wife and I each ordered a different burger, the brisket burger and the southern burger then split them so we could try each. They were both very big and juicy. They were both very tasty but we both preferred the southern burger with the pimento cheese over the brisket burger. If not there early parking can be a challenge... More

We were up in the Williamsburg, VA, vicinity on vacation last month, and we were perusing ads for different restaurants close to our condo rental. Initially, we just glanced at the 2nd Street menu and concluded it was little too pricey for us for dinner, but then we gave it a second look and decided to go there for lunch.... More
