Reservations were a must even though we were the only ones in the restaurant. Garlic Knots were great, Salad was great, the Rockfish special was average, Alfredo Sauce was bland, 12 year old kids were not allowed to order off the kids menu, Service was Great, Prices were a little high, but not to bad.

The location is a little deceiving (in a campground) but the food is top rate! The best italian I've ever had.

My husband and I have eaten at this restaurant located on the Chickahominy River several times and have never been disappointed. Last Friday evening I ordered one of the specials, Rockfish Maryland. It was a large fillet topped with crab meat and a lemon butter sauce. Absolutely delicious! It was served with their salad and house dressing (served family style... More

The food here is wonderful. This is located in a camp ground but the quality of the food is far above what you would expect to find in this location

Walkers Dam Grill sent out an email invitation to come and visit and offered a "1/2 OFF ONE ENTRÉE with the purchase of one entrée at regular price." Upon arrival, a sign is posted on front door that only one coupon could be used per table. That means that the three couples lured to this out-of-the-way restaurant by the ad... More

Small restaurant with a BEAUTIFUL view of the Chickahominy river. Sunsets are particularly great. Great food (great bread!) that has the taste of home-made italian.

Walkers Dam Grill is one of those places that we really enjoy going to every few weeks. The food is great and the service is pretty good. Bar drinks are available and they have a nice selection of wines. While it is slightly off the beaten trail, getting there is not really a big problem and you'll find that it... More

This is out of the way, but definitely worth the drive to get here. The owners used to own Doraldos Restaurant out by Kingsmill. They opened the Tuscan Grill in Newport News, and next week, they open Tuscan II in Williamsburg. The portions were large. Took half of my Chicken Parmesan home as did my wife with her lobster filled... More

This is our 4 time this year and every time we have enjoyed the place. I have never been able to eat all they give you. Plenty for lunch the next day. Sad that they will be closing for the season.
