Reviewed 15 September 2013

The restaurant was surprisingly good for being in the hotel. The service was excellent, as was our waiter Beck.

“Labor Day Mini-vacation”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Our kids liked breakfast so much that they actually begged us to go back to Bistro 515 for dinner. We loved the breakfast buffet, and dinner was just as good - and healthy too. Denise was great, so ask for her !

Stopped in with the family for a late supper after a long day at Busch Gardens. Good service despite the late time.

“Get $erved to $ave! Get $ati$fied to $avor!!!”

Kids Eat Free - Breakfast & Dinner?? TVs at the Booths??? Made to Order Hot Breakfast Menu????

You have to be here with your kids to see it in their eyes what it means for them eating here either a complete breakfast in the morning or a satisfying dinner at the end of the day! You feel but RESPECT what this Bistro has built as a Business Model ~ for this area and even rest of the country! A revolutionary model to follow! For starters, KIDS EAT FREE - 12y and under, both Breakfast and Dinner. You start your day with some savings and you end it also the same way. Savings out of the way for those who look for bottom line satisfaction ~ Service is out of this world! You have a variety of menu items, reasonably priced!!! You get out of the bed and either take turns while the bathroom is occupied to come down and eat a healthy and mouth-savoring breakfast; or get ready and eat before heading out to area attractions! You can order hot breakfast items like waffles and omelets. There is a full breakfast bar with several items to overflow your plate! The executive chef (Shaun) takes great care to listen to all your requirements and when you are served your meal with his smiley "Enjoy your breakfast!" the stage is set for you to realize his attention to detail with your fist bite!!! Yummy, Yummy in your tummy! :) My kids loved everything he served to them! The brown & powdered sugar with sprinkles that top pancakes, waffles, French toasts, etc. is a great touch to make kids go "Wow!" There are several booths that have personal TVs with the entire line up of basic cable TV. It completes the experience to the fullest ~ I observed kids shows, CNN news, Primetime TV Shows and Reality shows being played at several booths! Entertainment for all ages!!!

My brother and I were guests at the Williamsburg Gateway Holiday Inn Hotel this past weekend. We vacation to build good memories for our kids staying together. We actually exchanged that there is no way we will meet such a great standard for a while, and it would not surprise us that it may only meet once we return here!

On the way back, I could not stop talking to people I know, about the Food Fun during our 3days-2nights getaway at Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites - Williamsburg Gateway Hotel!!!

“Average food, great staff”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

I think the service here was actually better than the food. We had 2 waiters and both of them were great. The food was pretty average nothing special. The fries were good - they are fresh and hand cut by the cook. The burger was just ok. The kids liked their food and ate for free with the purchase of an adult meal. I would eat here again but might try something other than a burger.
