This place came highly recommended by our local friends, but it underwhelmed. Food - so so (had the petite filet and a swordfish steak) ... service - so so ... atmosphere - pretty nice. I can't swear there are better options in town, but I'd be surprised if there aren't.

Lovely small restaurant. Dark rich appointments. Open kitchen with very personable chef. Service was very relaxed with knowable waiter. We chose the chef special of filet, crab stuffed shrimp all prepared very well. Too full for dessert.

If you go t Williamsburg you have to save your appetite for this restaurant. The cheddar cheese spread on sesame bread sticks are awesome. But don't eat too many. Save your appetite for their delicious prime rib. It is cooked to order and is mouth watering.It comes with a salad and baked potato but I can maybe eat half. I... More

My husband and I along with another couple recently dined at Aberdeen Barn for our wedding anniversary with many regrets. We dined at the Aberbeen Barn in Virginia Beach off of Northhampton Blvd. 2 years ago, the customer service, quality of food and atmosphere was phenomenal!! However, the Aberdeen Barn in Williamsburgs provided us with a completely different experience that... More

If you like steak this is the place to go. My hubby and I shared a dinner with no up-charge to our surprise. The steak was tender and was one of the most delicious ones I have ever had.

I wanted to treat my boyfriend to his favorite dish- Prime Rib, thought this restaurant would be a great experience for us both, highly disappointed in food and service. I do not recommend!

Aberdeen Barn provided an excellent meal in an old-style, meaning not T-shirts and flip-flops, setting. Appointed with dark wood decor and service that catered to the customer, we enjoyed our time. The food was excellent and the dessert, I had the carrot cake -- was suburb. A nice place for a quiet, upscale break in the mass tourist area of... More
