If I could give zero stars I would. They should have paid me to eat there. Three of us had different entrees which we sampled. The macaroni was watery and tasteless. The fried chicken was crispy and tasteless the chefs special was horribly fishy and extra disgusting. The ambience was lackluster and the singing out of tune. Waitress unfriendly. I... More

We always eat at least one meal at Christiana Campbell's when we travel to Colonial Williamsburg for a visit. On this trip we waited and took the adult kids with us to have a wonderful family dinner when the four of us could all get to town at the same time while we were there. The period decor, the colonial... More

The entertainment was good and quite enjoyable, The entrees were all under cooked especially the carrots and potatoes. The server was very good and apologetic. I wouldn't go back.

There were six of us and we all ordered something different. All meals were really good, nice assortment of beer. Story teller and fiddle player made it completely colonial. Would definitely return

We were last here in 2013. Remembering where you are and from the historic perspective...a relatively pleasant experience. As are the other historic area restaurants. You are paying for the experience, not the food. That said, the meals were ok, some items better than others, but the crab cakes were among some of the most average I have ever eaten.... More

We visited this restored historical site in November, 2016. We enjoyed the atmosphere inside with staff acting out roles of locals like Ms, Campbell. Conversations in the local time period were fun. We had a violinist who played while we ate and our wait staff was very attentive.

My Momma told me, "if you can't say nothin' nice, don't say nothin' at all." Indeed, all of my TA reviews have been positive. But Mrs. Campbell pushed me over the edge. The two is a compromise. My companions had seafood, and thought it rated a 4 at best. I have a non-aggression pact with sea life, and had perhaps... More

Nice atmosphere and historical setting. Reserve inside the main dining area, as the additional seating area on the back enclosed porch is freezing cold! Musicians played some songs, waitstaff in colonial garb. The food is very average. "Spoon bread" was the only thing I could say was at all "colonial." I'm looking forward to checking out the other restaurants in... More
