Visited Yorktown Pub for a cold beer and some food. The place was really busy. People coming and going. Beer selection is HUGE, food selection is also HUGE. You definitely get what you pay for so come hungry or be prepared to split a plate. Food is very good and priced very fair. Lots of locals so do as we... More

Went here following a tour to Yorktown battlefield. Ordered the pear salad and a crab cake, with a beer and ended up spending close to $28. The restaurant is right on the water but as it was on the off season did not feel like it was worthwhile. I Would come back again but not unless you want to pay... More

We have had several meals here and enjoyed them all. They were open in January during the snow/ice and in February during better times. Very reasonably priced, good food, fun place. We will certainly go back when in the area.

Great location along the Riverwalk in Yorktown. Pub is an older place with a great atmosphere. The menu has lots of options and reasonably priced. The steamed oysters were perfect. Definitely a must stop and will visit again.

Nice little place full of locals but moderately expensive. I've been there twice. Service is good and location is quaint, right across the street from the Yorktown River beach. Nice area to walk. If you like ferrel cats, there are several regulars that hang out near the side entrance where they get fed.

Local pub is a great little place to meet up with friends for a beer or some food. Food is tasty and portions are hearty. The crowd is usually a nice mix of locals and visitors. Right at riverfront so sometimes a wait but not too bad generally.

The Yorktown Pub is located right on the waters edge in the revolutionary town. When you enter the pub you will find a realistic pub ambiance that makes you want to enjoy the atmosphere. My fresh cod sandwich was an excellent selection. One of the Thursday's specials was a dozen local oysters for 12$. I went back the next day... More

I was out riding with my wife and we were looking for somewere that I had not been before. We were in Yorktown and found this Pub. We walked in, the place was not very busy so we seated ourselves and waited. It was obvious that this place caters to the known locals. They were all hanging around the bar... More

Yorktown Pub has delicious food in an extremely casual atmosphere. Seafood is fresh, local, and at a good price. Side dishes are homemade. You'll get at taste of laid back beach life with a stop at the Pub.

Okay bad stuff first. The waiting staff is relatively young and inexperienced. They are not the worst but could use a little work. The pub is pretty small but I suppose that's why it's so Charming. It's been there a long time. Another downside is that I can't get anything other than a shot of hard liquor. So 4 guys... More
