I am taking 12 high school students to Williamsburg in the spring. I am looking for a resturante with an old time theme. OR even a B&B that would hold a nice dinner for them.....any ideas would be great...
If you mean an old time theme as in colonial then the best place (I don't know their current prices) is The King's Arms right in the restored village. It really puts one in the mood for seeing all the sights. I'm sure there are lots of other restaurants to choose from... I just haven't been there in awhile.
The other taverns in Colonial Williamsburg are:
CW operates each tavern on a cycle, so it is in your best interest to call to see which ones will be open during your trip. Reservations at any of the taverns are a must for a group as large as yours. Their number is 1-800-TAVERNS or (757) 229-2141.
Chowning's would probably be my favorite of the bunch.
As far as privately operated "colonial" theme restaurants in greater Williamsburg, there aren't any that come to mind that serve dinner. Mama Steve's is a pancake house on Richmond Rd. open for breakfast and lunch. It has a colonial flair, and really good food.
