Eating at a historical site was new to us. The ambiance was unbelievable., even eating by candlelight with done legendary dishes. But the menu was straight out of today and was wonderfully prepared. WE highly recommended.

What a wonderful place to spend Thanksgiving. You have to make reservations well in advance, and we still had to wait about fifteen minutes but that wasn't for a table as much as they just seat slowly and we were there when they opened. There was a fixed menu with limited choices from that menu. I'm not always adventurous when... More

We recently did a whirlwind tour, Americas Historic East tour with Globus tours. We saw so much in such a short time but that's the way we prefer. You do lose however, the relax its a vacation factor. But you more than make that up with all the many great American sites we did see. Christiana Campbell's Tavern-Colonial at Williamsburg... More

Campbell's is by far one of the best local taverns in CW. Food is always good and the atmosphere/entertainment takes you back to the 18th century. Campbell's is known for seafood fare so make certain to try local favorites.

We have visited Colonial Williamsburg several times since our first visit for our honeymoon 43 years ago. Christiana Campbell's Tavern which was known for Tidewater seafood was a favorite. We had dinner there once again during Christmas and were extremely disappointed with the quality of the fish! It was leathery and had obviously been frozen, cooked, and reheated....mass production fish.... More

We made our reservation a few months in advance. Had an amazing Christmas Dinner here, special holiday menu, 3 courses and several selections to choose from for each course. Very generous portions. The spoon bread and muffins were so very good! The service here was wonderful as it always has been, in spite of it being a really busy day... More

We have never has anything less than a delicious meal here. A favorite is the light and delicate cod, but regardless of the entre, the spoon bread is not to be missed. It could/should be a meal on its own. Simply addicting! The Thomases

We expected a Tavern atmosphere, and at first that is what we receive. These taverns are billed as a place where there is political discussions, and minerals, and rowdy conversation. On the night we were there, it was none of the above. No history folks strolling around discussing the events of 1775. No Mrs. Campbell came to your table and... More

My husband and I had gone to an evening event at Bassett Hall, so we'd made a reservation at Christiana Campbell's for dinner. I love the fried chicken and my husband loves the sweet potato muffins, and he ordered crab cakes for dinner. We love the tavern atmosphere at Christiana Campbell's and it's fun when there is entertainment. This evening... More

Okay, if you're looking at reviews here to gauge how good the food is, this is probably not the place for you. Average entree is in the $30 range, and the food in no way merits that price. This is strictly for the experience, which, like the colonial-era spoonbread they serve, is interesting but probably only needs to be sampled... More
