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

We ate the buffet which was one of the best I've enjoyed. Everything was fresh and nothing dried out. There were fresh breads and pastries. Omelet bar. Fruits. Staff was friendly and prompt.

Traditions at Williamsburg Lodge serves up mid-Atlantic cuisine. The breakfast buffet provides two tasty options: continental (pastry and such) and full (lots of Southern favorites like bacon, grits, and biscuits and gravy). Like the rest of the Williamsburg Lodge, it carries on the American colonial...More

Call for day(s) & time for buffet availability. Many different seafood items & meats also. Gourmet presentation. $39/pp + 11% tax. Bar menu available. We're local & repeat patrons. Highly recommended.
