Movie Tavern Williamsburg is a tavern, movie theater, and not quite full-service restaurant rolled into one. First: The tavern. They have pretty standard drinks. Nothing off the wall, but the steins are pretty cool and you get a small discount if you refill them. There is a very small area in the lobby where one can consume adult beverages before... More

We loved to go watch a money here. They food is always good. And the drinks are a plus. The seats and lighting always relaxes me. This is a must go to movie spot.

I was concerned about the office like chair many complained about on tripadvisor. But the chair was fine; nice, comfortable, and plenty of room on the chair and the area surrounding the chair. The food was surprisingly good, and the beer definitely made it taste better. The service was excellent. The movie ticket price I thought was a bargain (martinee... More

This is my first ever one star rating for anything, but I just could not find a single redeeming feature to this theater. Here's my experience of the place: First of all, I did not try the food, so I'm not rating the food. This rating is strictly for the movie-watching experience there. My chair was not comfortable. The chairs... More

You sit a small counters in an upholstered office chair to watch your movie. This allows you all kinds of movement and you don't have to fight for the arm rest with your neighbor like a traditional movie theater. The food was different -- appetizer platters, mac and cheese, burgers, and buckets of beer! It was fun.

My wife and I did not know what to expect when we decided to go to the movies here. We ordered a meal (real food) and took our seats in the theater. Within 10 minutes our food arrived. What truly amazed me was that I asked for a second beer to be delivered to my seat in about 30 minutes.... More

I've been to several theaters that offer this type of "unique" dining service. Due to inclement weather, my wife and I had the option of watching a movie in our sub-par hotel or watching a movie here. That was an easy decision. The movie was very good and the theater itself was good overall. The dining experience lacked a great... More

This was our first experience with the dinner and a movie-type theaters. It was great! The mid-movie beer service is prefect! The food was actually better than expected: nice salads, sandwiches, burgers and pizza. A decent selection of beers too. The food didn't take long to arrive and about 30 minutes after the previews had started we received our second... More

Where else are you going to eat out on Christmas or New Years' Day? They do show some retro movies but most are first-run. As it happens, the kitchen is not bad; of course the usual fried food but also some nice salads and creative sandwiches, decent selection of beers. More limited on the wine but a couple of OK...

Rainy day at Colonial Williamsburg sent us to a movie. We had just eaten breakfast so we didn't order anything to eat, but really liked the concept. The facility was nice and clean and the office chairs were a comfortable way to watch a movie.
