Williamsburg, VA - Dinner?

Recommended Posts

Any recommendations for a good meal in Williamsburg, VA?  Let's assume I'm not interested in the kitsch of eating quasi Southern fare in a restored 1776 tavern served by period actors. Just good food. Possibly a nice sports bar to watch the game tonight.

A few years ago, I was at the  Williamsburg Hooters at like 10pm on a Saturday and I think they were getting ready to close because we were the only people there.   :lol:

We only ended up there because we couldn't find anything else open.

Quite the punny menu.

Interesting place.  They also have a box of Trivial Pursuit style cards on every table to encourage "discussion" among those sitting there while you wait for your food.

Man, i love Pierce's BBQ.  I'd go there and take it back to the hotel room and watch the game.  Just sit on your bed with 2 large BBQ sandwiches and a sweet tea and immerse yourself in loserness.  I've done it many a time and it's great.

Sal's by Victor doesn't have a bar, but they do have a couple of TVs and very good italian.

If ever in doubt there is a bonefish grill.  Bar there is easy to chill at and swig down a brew with some adequate food.

Substitute this with the 7-11's finest sixer of craft brew and you've nailed my plans for tomorrow night.

I got engaged there 13 years ago, then went next door to the Green Leafe and drank until I forgot I proposed. Much to my chagrin, that doesn't negate the proposal, though.

I am too old to admit this - but Paul's Deli was the place to go if you were under 21 and wanted to drink.  Green Leafe was a slightly older crowd - more graduate students.  Many years after this I was back at W&M and did have beers with Bruce Hornsby at The Green Leafe which was pretty cool.
