Never had any thing like these before! Breakfast was very good but these flat biscuits were amazing. Must try here again! And they have a fabulous two-level gift shop with quality merchandise.

This is the real Southern breakfast -- excellent country ham, bacon, sausage, grits, and best of all, wonderful homemade biscuits. The biscuits are authentic, but unique: rolled out flat, rectangular, not a lot of leavening--and they melt in your mouth! I am so glad that there is still someplace that gets the classics so right. Well done!

Vacationing in Williamsburg, we made it just under the wire for breakfast service, thank goodness we did. The restaurant only uses Edward's ham, which is Virginia ham. This different than NC ham and I'll have to say Virginia ham taste better. They serve Mimosas and Rebal Cocktails for breakfast. Our plates had biscuits and eggs as well. We also shared... More

This restaurant, always a favorite of locals, and known by some visitors, is a mix of gift shop and country cooking. Do not mistake it as a Cracker Barrel knockoff, this is the original. As you wait for a table, you can brouse the store, a mix of the typical, the artisan, and the real antiques. When seated in the... More

We were looking for a place to have lunch before going to Busch Garden's Christmas Town. This was close and had good reviews, so we decided to give it a try. We did not know we could call ahead, which would have saved us lots of wait time. We were told upon arrival that there was an approximate 40 minute... More

Our favorite place to eat in Williamsburg. We come here 3 or 4 times a year and eat at the "chick house" several times each trip. Very simple menu , but if you like chicken and dumplings , ham biscuits , stew, pie , and sweet tea , you will become a regular! The family atmosphere is so cozy that... More

Call ahead for this old style dinning establishment. It's worth you time to enjoy a bit of history, home style cooking, and great atmosphere. From gift shop to the dinning room time has stood still. Ham and Brunswick stew are both pretty good. Make sure you try the pie
