We liked the menu a lot! Interesting and not just typical choices... high marks went to the shepherd's pie and the fish and chips. The Cobb salad was great too - except for the eggs, which tasted stale. Overall, great though! There were lots of things we wanted to try but couldn't. Recommend for casual lunch, brunch or dinner.

Went for lunch, first went into Paul's next door by same owners...it was packed so decided to try the redone Green Leafe given the new ownership. This place was empty...lots of staff, but they seemed clueless as to how to serve. Ordered a bowl of shrimp bisque and a beef stew was delivered! When we said that wasn't what we... More

This place has been in Williamsburg for years, and the years were taking it's toll on the tavern. In came a new owner and did what had to be done. A little redesigning and most importantly an important clean-up of the facility. The craft beer list was always terrific and the food very good to excellent. A very pleasant place... More

Interior could fit in with a DC or New York whiskey bar, not your average college bar. Great selection of whiskeys, aged rums, and tequilas. Also has a good beer selection, could use a little more local breweries

I was there the other night, and they only had two wines available, both "on tap." One was "red" and one was "white." Neither was very good. And nothing, I mean nothing, else to choose from. That's a deal-breaker.

We have not visited since Paul's purchased and renovated. Thought we would try to see if there was a difference. Definitely there is. The atmosphere is much warmer. The cleanliness has improved, especially the restrooms which were poorly maintained by the prior owner. The beer selection was 5 star. The food was OK...standard pub fare but not inexpensive. A notch... More

I read the reviews for this place, and it looked good, so we decided to give it a try. We got there before happy hour was over, but missed the happy hour deals since the waiter didn't come to our table until after happy hour was over. It had great reviews for drinks, so we starting by ordering two beers... More

Should have been a great local bar right on campus until I got bill. Great location. Not much atmosphere, but still just what our group was looking for to hang out and have a few drinks. We asked for Vienna Lager. Tap ran out while bartender was pouring so I asked for another lager on tap. I got a dark... More

Went into the Green Leafe café for a quick lunch. College was out of session which actually made it a great time to eat. The previous two times I was here it was a home college football Saturday for the Tribe and this joint was rocking! This time there was only one or two other couples here but it was... More
