We moved to Williamsburg recently, and finally tried this place, a local legend of sorts. I have no idea why. It does a landoffice business; people must love tasteless food and biscuits that are like Civil War hardtack. We had "Brunswick stew", which CAN be...More

Looks like you got two good sets of directions. There is also parking on the side street. It is a busy place and only open until about 3 p.m. so don't go late.
