Okay, those of us on budgets won't go here much, but it sure is amazing for a treat once a year or so. And a wonderful place to gather with nearest and dearest

The Regency Room at the Williamsburg Inn is the finest dining in all of Colonial Williamsburg. We hosted our daughter's wedding reception in the Regency Room in late October. However, renovations of this unique hotel are underway and changes as well as times of services are about to made to the dining room. It is currently closed until the end... More

I expected nothing less The service was outstanding and the food was amazing. I have read the reviews about how slow some patrons think the service is. Get real this... More

The Regency Room, located within the Williamsburg Inn, truly deserves the many awards it has earned over the years. There are plans to move the Regency Room closer to the lobby and use the current location for destination events and ceremonies. The move should have no effect whatsoever on the quality of cuisine or outstanding service the Regency Room is... More

We wanted to get by the Regency Room before they make changes at the Williamsport Inn that will make the Regency area more of a site for weddings, receptions, et cetera, and we were pleased with our visit. They definitely are not just going through the motions; we got A-1 service, selection and food on our visit. Everything we ordered... More

We have always thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this iconic & regal hotel for high tea. We've attended the tea service here since High tea transferred from The Lodge in the early 2000's. This year was our 16th tea so we can speak from experience. IF this tea were the first one, we'd never have gone back. First, the server... More

Christmas Dinner was $150. and extremely slow. We were there 1-1/2 hours before the appetizers were delivered. I don't know if mine was meant to be warm or hot, but it was only room temperature.

The restaurant and In are good but dated, their peak was the 1930-1950's and it shows. They are in the process of updating but it still has a bit of a tired, but elegant air. Classic but kind of like going to your rich grandma's to eat. Th price is steep, $20+ for two drinks

My family enjoyed a leisurely breakfast here during our vacation. The Eggs Benedict and Pancetta Waffles were delish and the Donut Holes were a complete hit. Come dressed appropriately, coat and tie are not required for breakfast, however nice pants and shirt fit with the ambience. A great opportunity to educate your older children on appropriate etiquette.
