From a Pizza Hut to a local diner. This is one great place for breakfast in Williamsburg. $6.95 for a Shortys Special. Three eggs, breakfast meat, fried potatoes and toast. What a deal! It’s busy and sometimes a short wait especially in the summer time. Always have a lunch special and home made pies. You can’t go wrong at Shortys. Life is short, enjoy everyday!

Bubba's Shrimp Shack

Reviewed By TA G

Bubba's is a casual, relaxed eating venue. The food was outstanding. We had the flounder and shrimp basket along with baked beans and green beans. Everything was well prepared and delicious. It came with cocktail sauce, tartar sauce and remoulade, all fresh and tasty.My only "complaint" is that only the shrimp can be ordered steamed or fried. Everything else is Fried Only. I would love to have the option of a grilled or baked fish filet, although I must say the flounder was probably the best I have ever have. There is no doubt that we will come back to Bubba's again and again, but I hope they can find a way too offer more healthfully prepared entrees.

Texas Roadhouse

Legendary Food, Legendary Service

Reviewed By joseph d

I had a great/ memorable dining experience at the Texas Roadhouse in Newport news (VA) on 18 April 2019 (my first time). Service/ hospitality was super - kudos to our server Mikaela who was pleasnt,fast and on top of refills. Everything we ordered was out quickly. The food was perfect. Big steak (you can pick any cut - I had ribeye) cooked to perfection (MR in my case). Bread, appetizers & main course out in just a couple of minutes. If you are lookiing for a great steak, quick service and enjoyable ambiance, Texas Roadhouse will fill the bill 100%.

We were plannig to go to a nearby restaurant, but found no seating there and opted for lunch indoors here after a long, hot morning exploring the exhibits in Yorktown. Great view of the river. Lunch prices were less than $20 per person, and portion sizes were appropirate. The bacon cheeseburger was huge, others really enjoyed the duck BLT, as well as the Mahi taco bowl and crab melt. Fresh garlic bread was served while waiting.

Yorktown Pub

Reviewed By hudsontj

Our family had a great lunch here before exploring the Yorktown Battlefield. Softshell crab special was fantastic and the fish and chips special with fresh meaty haddock was great. Our kids burgers looked good too. Our waitress was really attentive and sweet. Beautiful view as it is literally right at the beach. Parking was easy, just in front of the restaurant. I would definitely come back again.

County Grill

Reviewed By 766scottj

We came at lunch at 11:15 and it was empty. There were about 5 to 10 servers and staff standing in the open kitchen area all talking including our waitress. One of the staff was using really bad language over and over again openly . If I were a manager I would have fired her right on the spot. I asked for no coleslaw and well done on the bbq. Sandwich came with slaw on the plate and bread where they scraped it off before serving it to me. The bbq was chewy and fatty. We sent a large plate back with nothing but fat. They brought us a better selection of pulled pork. In summary the service was ok, food poor. The management needs to make the staff more attentive instead of all hanging out talking. For number one on TripAdvisor I will try other choices prior to returning. On a positive note they did compensate my meal but I never did meet or talk to a manager at all or even see one. The waitress was the only person we talked to. We have been here about 10 times so far this year and have always recommended it to friends. What a bummer.

Craft 60 Ale House

Reviewed By wiggum77

We stopped here on the way back from Yorktown. It is a smhomemadepitaall place hidden in the rear. When we walked in, there was only a bartender/server/hostess/etc. She was very nice and very friendly. She seated us promptly and took our drink order. If you love appetizers, you will love this place. The crab dip is very good. My daughter loved the homemade pita chips. The pretzel mozzarella sticks are amazing. They are so tasty and the homemade beer mustard sauce is the perfect compliment. The burgers are hand made and very thick. I ordered mine medium, but the thick center was medium and the thinner outside was well done. This is a nice place but a little dim and looks like it caters better to a night life. The cigar/vape chest in the entrance is a little off putting. The staff is very nice, the appetizers are amazing, and the burgers are good.
