Fun experience, good food, history here, with all that in place, you are going to have a memorable evening. I very much enjoyed the seafood chowder, sampler dinner and dessert for one price. But the history, oh my, to where the Washington’s ate, is special...More

We enjoyed our experience at Christiana Campbell's Tavern. Eating in a historic location was neat and I enjoyed reading the history of the business and it's proprietor on the menu. The restaurant gets crowded so I'd recommend making reservations ahead of time. The tavern menu...More

This is a place you go for the experience not necessarily for the great food or good prices. Let's face it, the prices on the menu are expensive for what it is; it will cost you to eat here. We went here just a few...More

We had a very good meal at this tavern while visiting colonial Williamsburg. All of the staff dress in period attire and some are "in character" For example... Christina Campbell's "niece" actually visited our table to thank us for coming and to give a bit...More

A wonderful place. We had Bangers and Mash and the Stuffed Flounder. Delicious. Best bangers since we lived in England. Music was perfect for the setting. Highly recommend Christiana's.

Since it is a tourist spot, you see everything. We all did business casual because we were treating the evening as a special treat for the family.

I liked all of them. Christiana Campbell's was probably my favorite for dinner. I've enjoyed the others as well. I would look at the menus and see which looks most appealing to you. I liked Chownings best for lunch.

Not much has changed since George Washington frequented Christiana Campbell’s Tavern for its delicious seafood in the 18th century. Lively conversation and learned discussion still abound, and today’s menu items could easily have been ordered by our founding fathers. Dig in to locally sourced shrimp, scallops, and fish, and be sure to try Christiana’s famous crab cakes, and a group of balladeers will help you channel your inner seafarer with toe-tapping shanties.
