“Staff needs to retire!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Great food bit high priced. Waitresses act like you are bothering them by coming in. The sit in the back and read books. Maybe time for a couple to retire or get an attitude change. For avsaturday morning at 830 am it was not busy at all.

“Food and employee's attitude match, both bad!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We visited Mama's recently and were greatly disappointed in both the quality of the food attitude of the server and hostess. Both the people gave the impression that they would have preferred being any where but there. The cashier was nice, but the whole vibe of the restaurant staff was unhappy.

We had previously been to Mama Steve's and thought the food was good, this time, the eggs were drenched in grease to the point that if you held the egg up the grease would run off It. The hash browns were soggy and undercooked, the grits lacked any flavor,

“Do not bother”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Average pancakes, limited menu, no waffles, very forgettable. I regret we chose this as our only breakfast in Williamsburg. (Free continental breakfast at hotel). Maybe it is personal taste but the décor just seemed dated and dungy, not "Colonial" as intended. The elderly period dressed waitress were efficient, but the overall experience was unsatisfactory.

“A great breakfast place.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Mama Steve's has been consistently a great place to start a day visiting the sites in Williamsburg. The food is well prepared; the waitresses are friendly, provide good and attentive service and the prices are good. We have eaten there on almost every visit to Williamsburg over the past twenty years and never had a bad experience.

“Go somewhere else!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

As we walked in the woman behind the counter pointed us where to sit. The waitresses are all older and are dressed in colonial clothes. I paid over 6$ for pancakes and almost $2 for cold eggs. If I wanted a side of bacon it would have been another (over) $5. No sweet tea either. Had to wait like 5 mins for someone to come to the checkout counter. When she finally did she was eating food off a plate from the kitchen. Never visiting again. Thanks for wasting my money.
