Nice historic atmosphere with actors and live music. Their specialty is seafood, and since I have an allergy, I had the steak which was mediocre. However, I did enjoy the local beer and colonial spoon bread. Overall, a fun treat for evening dining while visiting Colonial Williamsburg.

Wonderful restaurant. We loved it. Came here on the 23 of December and it was the perfect combination of festive and romantic. Because of the closeness to christmas it was very busy and the original table they sat us was next to a large noisy party of 10. I asked if they could possibly move us to somewhere quieter and they accommodated us immediately. I can't say enough about the service and staff and the food was beyond our expectations. Thank you for a wonderful memory!

We ordered the rock fish special which had probably been prepared ahead of time and was somewhat dry, not up to their usual standards. On a scale of 1 to 10 their food is usually a 12, this time I would rate it an 8. Good, but I wish we had chosen something from the menu.
The occasion was my wife's Christmas present. We live almost 2 hrs away so coming here is always a special occasion.

We are in Williamsburg for Christmas and always enjoy eating at the taverns, and like to go to Christiana Campbell's. I like the fried chicken which I ordered the other night and it was delicious. My husband and our friend both had seafood and enjoyed it too. One thing I always forget is that this tavern is very noisy for some reason - to the point of having a hard time with dinner conversation. Oh well, we still had fun anyway!

We love the atmosphere of this colonial tavern, just around the corner form the Williamsburg Colonial Capitol. Food is excellent, service is personal and friendly, comes with Colonial entertainment and is a must do every time we are in Williamsburg.

Went here with large family group. Ambience was lovely. You felt like you went back in time. Staff very courteous, friendly, helpful. Server was excellent. Wish I could say the same for the food. While the portion size (plates) were large, the food was just okay. Had heard the crab cakes were outstanding; I've had better. The cod was gamey and the veggies were luke warm.
Best tasting thing was the warm nut muffins.

This has been our "special occasion restaurant" for years. This year it was a huge disappointment. We talked all day about the great meals that we've had there, and this year is was just okay. My husband had the seafood fricassee and I had the crab cakes. Both were just bland. Still love the ambiance, but not worth the price now.

Our 30th Wedding Anniversary (engaged in Williamsburg!) - a special evening, made even more special at Christiana Campbell's Tavern. A romantic table for two with the love of my life. A personalized 30th anniversary card from Christiana herself. We had a magical day and simply love Colonial Williamsburg.

It was our second time dining at this tavern. I love their seafood fricassee, mini muffins, fresh bread and spoon bread. This time I ordered crab cakes and they were good, too. Steamed vegetables were a little crude but perhaps, this is how this dish was served in the 18th century. My husband, however, was less than impressed with the Water-man dinner of chicken with no seafood in it. We loved the live music and the ambiance. Will come again.

Neither my husband nor I were thrilled with our food. I ordered fish and fish is not suppose to be very fishy tasting I have been told if it is fresh and my food was terribly fishy tasting. I would not order that again.

Always a special place for me to go, whether it be an anniversary or Christmastime dinner with a friend. Williamsburg is such a beautiful place, especially during the holidays. After strolling Duke of Gloucester street and admiring the gorgeous natural door decorations, we always highlight the evening with a wonderful meal at Campbell's Tavern. We love the historic Christmas spirit!

We had a very nice meal and evening at Christina Campbell's this past week. The only complaint is that we arrived about 20 minutes early and it was very windy and cold outside. They had not waiting area inside the restaurant. Thus we had to go back to our parked car, which was not close to the restaurant to keep warm.

Seafood place but has some of the best fried chicken I have ever had. My husband had the rockfish which was the feature and it came with shrimp and lobster on top and he said it was the best dinner he had at this location. It was a little loud in the room due to acoustics and a baby crying. Other than that it was fantastic.

This historic restaurant serves outstanding food in a romantic candlelit setting. Servers are in period clothing and a roving musician played the recorder and guitar. Lovely, relaxed atmosphere to be savored for a special night.

Food is always of excellent quality, along with the Colonial period atmosphere. This time we were treated to a 15 minute visit from "the owner" Christiana Campbell (the person dressed up to play her character), which was a special treat.
