I would highly recommend dining at this establishment. We had a girls weekend in Williamsburg and by far this was our best meal. We all had something different between seafood, steak and veal and everyone of us completely enjoyed our meals!

First off, let me say that our visit was just for the Thanksgiving dinner special and not for the regular menu items, so keep that in mind. Having said that for the price paid of $28 per person (excluding drinks), it was the bargain of the day. It included soup, salad, bread, main course of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green...

We dined here on Sunday Oct.30th.Not crowded at all which had us wondering about the place. Very nicely decorated and can be considered fine dining. White linen table clothes etc. We started off with rum cake that was sinfully good, after our appetizers of French Onion soup and soft shell Blue crabs which my husband loved we where brought a...

If you have ever been on a cruise, this is exactly the type of service you would have. The food was excellent, fresh seafood, fresh breads, sherbet to cleanse the pallet, the whole nine yards. We will definitely go back. Oh, and don't forget to order the cherries jubilee.

The Seafare is located in front of the hotel we were staying at in Williamsburg during Thanksgiving weekend. From the outside, we found the building very dull and somewhat unappealing, but we were tired and didn't want to drive to eat at any of the same old chain restaurants that line Richmond Road, so we gave it a try. What... More

Had a wonderful dinner at Seafare last night. Our server, Mr. Washington was excellent and very knowledgeable about the dishes listed in the menu. He attended our every need without being overbearing or intrusive. The food and presentation was very good.

We were there for Thanksgiving dinner, maybe not the best time for a restaurant review, but the staff was wonderful and the 5 course meal was perfect. Each course was just what you would want - from the soup, entree to dessert. Light, fluffy pumpkin pie was something I will remember for a long time. Again - we didn't order... More

I took my mother and my two daughters to the Seafare last night as the hotel recommended it to us. First it took about 10 minutes to be seated, even though there were only very few guests. Our waitress was extremely rude and arrogant, holding her nose literally way up in the air (my kids were scared of her). We... More

My wife and I had dinner here and were really disappointed. Wait staff was very attentive and the interior, although dated, was bright and clean. Food was adequate, at best. I had the Snapper with crab/hollandaise sauce and the fish was oily and the hollandaise was watery. My wife had the swordfish and it was overcooked. Being the day before... More
