Williamsburg, VA area restaurant/pubs

Taking the family vacation in Williamsburg next week. Noticed there are a few members from the area here.

We try to avoid the Chili's/Red Robin/Tourist Hell places at almost all costs. Can anyone recommend anything casual, kid friendly (but not kid oriented) w/ local flavor? Thank you.

I can't remember the names of the places but Abrooks on the board can help you.

I just did Williamsburg a week or so ago. Williamsburg Inn is awesome for a hotel. All the surrounding restaurants are pretty good for "family restaurants".

Cheese Shop for lunch at some point.
Pierce's of course if you want to try BBQ (It isn't NC style but what is?)

If you want BBQ take a day trip up to Richmond and go to Buzz and Neds BBQ.

We did part of the family vacation there this summer. Great breakfast place "Southern Pancake and Waffle". Anna's Brick Oven was good for dinner. We did a Shields Tavern in the colonial area. Kids enjoyed the experience there.

Great info..thanks all.

We visited last year but spent most of our evenings at the Kingsmill or Colonial Williamsburg. Great time, but we want to get out and experience the area a bit more.

.....and the pancake and waffle place is good.

If you like good beer and German food, the Bier Garden in Portsmouth, VA about an hour east of Williamsburg is worth the trip.
We have a group that meets there on a semi-regular basis.

Go to Yorktown on the river. Several places to eat, good food, the pub is noisy but good food. The place next to the pub is good too but a more family atmosphere. A couple other places in the main area. Saturday has a good farmers market.
It also has a great sand beach for the kids.

If you head down to Hampton hit Saint George brewing company. Tuesdays and Fridays they have a food truck. Saturdays they do tours and random events.

There's also the Geen Leaf Tavern in Williamsburg adjoining the W&M campus. It's more of a college bar but decent pub food with a great selection of real beers.

Trellis on Duke of Gloucester St is excellent for upscale dining. DOG Street Pub next door is good and more casual. Cheese Shop is across street.

I am there teaching in the fall and winter months.

thanks all

Pierce's Pit & DOG Street Pub were great....heck, I would have eaten at Pierce's every day if it wasn't for the family.

Off topic rant here, but Busch Gardens is nice for what it is, 8 yr old loves it, but there is something irritating about a $72 entrance fee plus $15 to park in the furthest lot ($25 for "preferred").... Will probably try and skip that on the next trip.
