We passed by the other, fancier restaurants nearby and wandered in during a busy Saturday. The hostess immediately welcomed us and showed us to an open booth (the only table left). Relieved to get a seat, we took in the atmosphere. The place was bustling....Amy greeted us and assured us she'd be with us shortly. Platter after platter of food went by our table, and everything looked fantastic. We placed our order, and got it in a reasonable amount of time. My husband got the Rockfish which was moist and flavorful, and I had the fried jumbo shrimp, also very tasty and filling for a "half order." A really nice experience on a beautiful Fall day. Recommend!More

Based on recommendations from TripAdvisor reviewers, we stopped here after a long day of sightseeing. I think we got the last available table before a waiting line started. Service was prompt, drinks were refreshing and the meal was excellent. We both had fried shrimp dinners....The shrimp was delicious and it was very plentiful; about twice as many shrimp as we would have gotten for the price at restaurants in the Midwest. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere; would not hesitate to dine there again!More

Traditional style pub across from the beach. Small but cozy with great service. The Seafood Gumbo was excellent. No kids menu and too many tv screens but otherwise, a really nice experience.

Stopped in on a trip to Yorktown. Really neat spot with great food, ambiance, service and beer. Had soup and sandwich special of the day - blackened flounder - it was oh so good. A cozy spot with lots of memorabilia and neat stuff on...the walls. Our server was spot on and friendly. A must do for lunch if in the area!! Will come backMore

Apparently the Yorktown Pub is a draw for a lot of people because it was extremely busy when we arrived on a Sunday evening. Three of us chose the fish tacos special while my grandson enjoyed a huge hotdog. It's a bit pricey in my...opinion, but the food was excellent and came quickly. Because of the size of the crowd (celebrating an earlier NFL football game), there was a lot of noise and it was not a place for quiet conversation but we went to eat, not converse.More

Our lunch on a Tuesday was delicious. We were seated quickly and our food came extremely fast after ordering. I had the Mahi Rueben and it was great. The only drawback of the experience was the price; all items were a little expensive in my...opinion.More

We went there on recommendations for their hamburgers. Sitting, looking the the waterfront made us change to seafood and we are so glad we did. The platters were heaping with some of the best seafood I have eaten, and I grew up on the Atlantic...coast. The service was great, and we would go back if we are ever in Yorktown again.More

I read that this was a "must visit" place to eat in the area. The food was equally pleasant to all members of my hard to please family! The pruce was right and the service was great. Hit the spot!

We stopped at the Yorktown pub for lunch. Nothing to look at from the outside or inside, but definitely the best crab cake I have ever had. That puppy was an inch tall at least. My husband had a pile of fried oysters that were,...according to him, second to none. We also had potato salad and Free Verse beer. It ended up being our best meal of our stay in Williamsburg!! We also came back for the key lime pie and lemon chess pie later in the day!More

it was just your average local pub. Not what I was looking for while on vacation. It was crowded and the service was slow. The food was just average. Has a good location along the water for a nice walk along the boardwalk after eating.
