Prices are much too high for 'locals' to enjoy. We were surprised by the price range considering the menu. Maybe tourists who have saved for a vacation could afford the costs, but this resident did not appreciate the lack of value for the expense.

“Susan and Jay H. Second Street just keeps getting better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

We visit Williamsburg almost every year and have been dining at Second Street on many of those visits. This year, our first visit was on a Friday night to a sold out crowd. The atmosphere was still quiet and cozy. We were served by Elizabet, who was professional and charming. We had the Poppin Shrimp, the Grilled Romaine and the Lettuce wraps. They all were delicious and we had such a lovely time. Elizabet was very attentive and sweet and upon our second visit, she greeted us with remembering our beverage order. This brought us back a third time and tried new offerings and I was in love with the risotto veggie burger. The best I have ever had! And yes, Elizabet made sure she was on for the last night of our trip and made our dining experience wonderful. See you next year!

“Our Best Dining Experience on Williamsburg Trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Second Street wins hands down for our best dining experience on our recent trip to Williamsburg. Our server, Olivia, was charming and provided exceptional service. She was quite proud of where she worked. We respect that. I had the Colorado Bison Meatloaf. Lynn had fried flounder. These entrees included a starter course and a dessert. I indulged in the huge sundae for dessert and Lynn had a flourless cake. We promised not to eat again for a month(:g). This was a great meal and a delightful dining experience. Thanks Olivia and Second Street.

“Good lunch during Restaurant Week”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

The concierge at our resort recommended the restaurant week menu ($10.13 for two courses) at Second St so we stopped by today for lunch. We each ordered the pleasant onion soup without the calorie loaded cheese. He had the Grilled Romaine Salad with Chicken and the presentation was almost as good as the salad. Balsamic dressing was lightly drizzled on the leaves.
I had the Shrimp Wrap which was very good and I opened up the wrap and just ate the shrimp, lettuce and cucumber salad alone.
The house made potato chips were excellent! They use some type of lightly seasoned salt (maybe a hint of bbq) on the chips and although we tried not to eat them as we were dieting, we ate all of them!
Service was a little off (hence the average rating and not very good). Our waiter brought our soups before our drinks and we had to ask for silverware and refills on drinks. We ate in the bar; perhaps, he was working the dining room as well as the bar.
