What to Eat in Williamsburg

Whether you're interested in sampling Colonial fare or trying something more modern from the city's growing culinary scene, you'll find plenty of restaurants to pique your interest in Williamsburg. Several 18th-century-style taverns dish out authentic meals and comfort food from the traditional (such as prime rib, ale marinated beef and herb roasted chicken) to the more unique (like peanut soup and Colonial game pie). King's Arm Tavern and Shields Tavern earn kudos for their wonderful atmospheres, variety of dishes and authentic tavern feel.

When it comes to modern fare, visitors and locals say a few restaurants hit the mark. The Fat Canary wins over diners with its tasty seasonal dishes and fine wine; Food for Thought is praised for its inventive menu of American classics; and A Chef's Kitchen impresses foodies with its upscale fixed-price, five-course dining experience (Champagne and paired wines included).
