King's Arm Tavern Ratings and Reviews
Wee love eating at the Colonial Williamsburg taverns, especially during the holidays. Only complaint is that the noise levels in the upstairs rooms are terrible. You can hear every conversation at every table. However, the food is excellent and the staff knowledgeable. If you are lucky, get Susan for your waitress. She has been there 20 years and is a wealth of information. Definitely recommend for Christmas Day brunch!
My wife's & my first time to Williamsburg in several years. Made reservations in advance & could not be happier with my choice. Great food & drink. George, our waiter, was courteous, attentive & very knowledgeable on historical facts.
We will most definitely return.
One of our favorites taverns when visiting Colonial Williamsburg. Food is always interesting. Recommend the peanut soup and chicken and mushroom soup. The pork chops were delicious and tender. Pleasant evening listening to the historical music also. Christine the waitress was informative and efficient as well kind. Will return.
Hadn't been to Colonial Williamsburg in years and when we go we take in at least one period tavern - this trip the King's Arms. The atmosphere is well, colonial of course. The waiter was very knowledgeable and provided some good recommendations. The food was very good. I had peanut soup hunter's pie, and tavern ale. My wife had a shank of pork.
The experience met our expectations.
My server, Sherri, could not have been more wonderful and was the best part of a great experience. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal (peanut soup, game pie, the peach orange punch and even the relishes!) the ambiance was terrific and I would definitely recommend to others.
Excellent. A must place to go if you enjoy lovely ambiance, great food, and great service. Follow the recommendations of the servers and experiment dishes that you normally would not try. Portions are good size, we shared our soup, main dish and the dessert, still perfectly filling and satisfying.
Our server, whose name I believe was Michael, was really wonderful. He added a great deal to our experience and the pork chop he recommended to me was superb. The musician was also fine. I know there was another seating after ours, but we never felt rushed.
We took my visiting sister and her husband out to dinner. The service was very good. My husband’s prime rib was very fatty. My mashed potatoes and vegetables were ice cold. We didn’t say anything at the time because of our guests. A musician came in and played three songs. We were there 2 hours.
I have been here before so I knew what to expect. We were forgotten! I made reservations month in advance for my 35th wedding anniversary. In the past our table was ready, a card on the table, entertainment during dinner. They stuck us and two other couples in a room they don't use, we directed traffic when people came through looking for the bathroom, the server was flaky, no entertainment, and we were freezing.
Overall it was a nice experience. My husband's game pye was excellent as was our salads and bread pudding dessert. I was disappointed in my prime rib as it needed more seasoning, it was very bland. It lacked that nice roasted crust on the edge that would give it more flavor. Even the gravy didn't elevate the taste. The restrooms need directional signs once you climb the stairs. Obviously this is an issue as, when I asked the waitress for directions, the diners all laughed. She apparently was asked this same question multiple times.
