not often you find excellent food and service to match, Lori the best waitress in the area. The restaurant is very clean and the restrooms are spic and span. It is a good feeling to be served when the waitress does so with a smile. A wide selection from the menu but not cumbersome. Spacious seating and customers are friendly... More

On the Virginia Travel Blog, Five Forks Café was mentioned as one of the best Hole in the Wall restaurants in VA. It is that, for sure. Down home, very informal, quick service, local dining spot. It's a bit noisy from the ice machine or perhaps the AC, usually 2 waitresses, short order cook and other cook in kitchen. The... More

On our trips back to Williamsburg, we often stop here for breakfast which is excellent, but lunch is very good too. My Bacon Cheeseburger had real, generous strips of bacon and the meat was of good quality; it was just a tad overcooked but the overall product still very good. My wife's Caesar Salad topped with seared chicken was excellent... More

Five Forks serves diner fare food and they are very good at what they do. We had a reuben sandwich with onion rings and a club sandwich with fries. They were both very good and the fries were crispy and well-seasoned. The onion rings were a little oily. Our overall lunch experience was very good and we would recommend this... More

The best breakfast we had in Williamsburg, and we were there for 8 days. We ate at 3 pancake houses and Five Forks had the best pancakes of all of them. Silva (sp), our waitress was great. 4 of us ate there and all 4 said it was the best on the trip.

A diner by all standards as interior is pretty old and not overly clean. Food quality is good but not spectacular although the turkey Reuben was reported by one in the group to be excellent. Greek fries are not worth trying even though they seem to be a house specialty. Overall good quality at very reasonable price.

My family had breakfast here. Service was quick, but everyone agreed the food was bland. The place itself could use a major clean. There was a huge ceiling leak also right behind our table. My husband had to move his seat so he didn't get wet, yuck! This was definitely a hole in the wall, we wouldn't go back.

What can I say... I appreciate a hearty serving of biscuits and gravy. Their menu has something for everyone for breakfast and lunch! All portions are gracious! I've always ordered breakfast when I go.

Very good food. Stopped for lunch, but I think the breakfast would be even better. Very good value for the money. I had the liver and onions and although slightly over cooked; very tasty. Some of the best mashed potatos I have ever had. My friend had fried fish that I would not have liked. Another had an opened faced... More
