Since we have retired, we've started trying different local restaurants. We were looking for a great breakfast and had read good reviews o Colonial Pancake House. We arrived midmorning on a weekday and found a handful of other customers. The waitress arrived promptly and allowed us time to look at the menu. My husband ordered a western omelet with home...

We decided to try this place out because of the reviews. The service was fast and amazing. I've never had biscuits so soft . Definitely did not disappoint. Can't wait to go again.

They make the pancakes with sweet cream & eggs, need I say more? Light and fluffy. We had the same waitress that is pictured on their TripAdvisor reviews, if you go, request her, she is a southern delight! The restaurant has a large fireplace that really set off the old colonial style restaurant. Order the pancakes!

Delicious food to eat like the locals. Service was quick even though there never seems to be a break due to how great it really is. The two times we've been here, the servers were very attentive and had a contagious positive energy that made both visits more worthwhile. The coffee is on point and my wife claims the ham... More

I dislike feeling like I am from out of town. I like to see what everyday life is like where ever I vacation. Off the beaten path and explore a slice of real life. The colonial pancake house is just that place. Good food reasonable price friendly staff. I thought these places didn't exist in Williamsburg. This is a place... More

If you have been to Williamsburg before you certainly have noticed that pancake houses abound. With so many options why not go for one of the best! We found Colonial Pancake House on a search, and we are so glad we gave them a chance. While not right downtown in the touristy area I suggest taking the few minute drive... More
