After three days of road trips, tourist traps, and hotels, we were ravenous! We wanted to taste local beers, so headed to the Virginia Beer Company for dinner. While the place looked AWESOME, there was only a food truck and we had three diners with three difference appetites. The bartender told us to head to Second Street for a great... More

Dining at Second Street on a recent weekend evening could not have been better. We did not have a long wait for a table after calling ahead. Sean our server greeted us promptly and brought us our Tavern Ale which we highly recommend. His service and that of those assisting was always on time, anticipating our needs but never intrusive....

Everyone in our party was extremely pleased with their dishes and our waiter was top notch; While we each had ordered something different everyone was pleased. Our only regret was we were too full to take on the cheesecake that we saw going to other tables as the lady next to us said the cheesecake was wonderful

Came here on a Saturday evening with a party of four. Restaurant was busy but service was very good. The problem was the food. I had pumpkin pork lasagna but it tasted like pork barbeque and salt. There was not hint of pumpkin and it was very heavy with no real distinctive taste. A friend had blackened flounder, the special... More

Second Street never disappoints. We make it a restaurant that we visit upon our return to Williamsburg. The BBQ chicken pizza was delicious and my burger was very good. Chyna was our server and was very attentive. We always enjoy our time there and our meal.

We returned to Second St. Bistro this April based on our amazing experience last year. We were not disappointed! We enjoyed top notch salads, appetizer and entrees. We appreciate that they offer many gluten free options that actually taste great. And our server, Sierra was fantastic! She was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. We really enjoyed talking with her and... More

This little Bistro is right off the Colonial Parkway and is away from the crowds of Colonial Williamsburg. I ordered food for pick up and it was ready at the bar when I arrived. They were super busy and getting busier. I had ordered the Bacon Tomato Grilled Cheese and upgraded to the onion rings. The onion rings were sweet... More

Excellent Food and Exceptional service. Our waiter John sincerely went above and beyond! The crab corn shower was out of this world as was the brussel sprouts with bacon. The ribs were "fall off the bone" delectable
