Traditions has a lovely lunch buffet. Not only is the food good - and different- but the servers are kind. It is quiet and restful. It is a wonderful break after walking the streets of the colonial area all morning. It used to be reasonably...More

The brunch here is wonderful. Alas, the seafood buffet is NOT! The lobster bisque tasted solely of inferior sherry, the crab legs (only served hot from a vat of hot water) were over cooked, and the scallop station was consistently out of scallops. The crab...More

Lousy service, poor maintenance of the buffet tables. "Artisan cheese" was ordinary. WEAK coffee. Beef was tough. We have used this brunch for several years as a family "special treat." In past years there was more selection, one waiter was assigned to a table so...More

Decided to order from the menu rather than the buffet. The buffet was usual fare for a breakfast buffet. The food was prepared well and the service was very good. Staff was very attentive and would return for breakfast.

One of our highlights when we visit Colonial Williamsburg is the Friday night seafood buffet. This year unfortunately, the experience was disappointing. You will get a better meal at Red Lobster.More

Traditions is a great place for breakfast. The breakfast buffet looked great but with Thanksgiving dinner a few hours away, we opted for omelets. The service was excellent especially considering the large Thanksgiving Day crowd. Arethea was our server, and she was a true professional....More
