Tips

  • Skip past the abnormally long waitlist for inside dining , and instead head out back for dining ala' cart. That line moves fast and food is exactly the same as inside.
  • the welsh rarebit is very tasty.
  • Get the pulled pork sandwich for only $8.50. Great deal.
  • Try the corn chowder-it's very tasty.
  • BBQ sandwich is on point! (That means it taste good).
  • If you want to experience authentic colonial dining, any of the taverns in Colonial Williamsburg will work. Chownings is a good one - good food and atmosphere.
  • Witch's Revenge - dark and light rum, apricot brandy, and pineapple juice. Nice, not too strong or sweet
  • The braised short rib sandwich, au jus, and garlic mashed potatoes was amazing! Don't pass up the root beer. It's the best I've ever had.
  • There's a beer they make in town here that they don't sell anywhere else in the world
  • Get the chopped salad
  • Turkey Trencher and a pint of ale!
  • Turkey Trencher! Also...get a pint of ale!
  • Really good food. Something special
  • Beer is good
  • Beer flight is a good sample of beers I've never tried!
  • Liebotschaner Cream Ale, cold, smooth and delicious! Drink two, like they did in the Olde Days!
  • Have a drink around back, very cool outside atmosphere.
  • CROWDED. We waited 15 minutes to be told they might have a table for us. When we were finally seated at the bar, we waited another 20 minutes until we finally left.... UNDER STAFFED AND RUDE SERVICE
  • The bean soup and sampler. So so delicious
  • Hot buttered rum and brisket pocket is amazing.
