It's been over 30 years since last visit. The crabs were bigger, better, and hotter then, but the place has changed little. Service and hush puppies were still excellent. The building and location seemed different but easy to find and access. However, crossing the street...More

Ordered an appetizer and a trip to the salad bar. I have never not finished my potato salad and/or macaroni salad so this was a first. The macaroni noodles tasted stale and it was just not a good recipe. The potato salad was very bland....More

Remembered going to Wilkerson's as a child--heard their ads on the radio and we decided to drive down for the weekend seafood buffet. Fresh basket of delicious hush puppies started us off. We arrived early and had our pick of the items as they were...More

Because it is the closest seafood restaurant to us, we have given Wilkerson's several chances. Their buffet is not very appetizing, and is very limited, especially for the price. The best meal we had there was not from the buffet, but there are other restaurants...More

Stopped by for some seafood and thought I would give them a try because I heard that they have been around since the 1940's and this is the 4th generation running the restaurant. First off, the place is clean and plenty of seating. There is...More

We eat here every time we come to Colonial Beach. The service is good and the view is wonderful. I called ahead to order two dozed crabs for take out. They were meaty and cooked just right. Didn't need to wait long.

Not sure how they have the nerve to charge 30.00 for their buffet. There are about five bland fried seafood items, over cooked steam shrimp and muscles. View is nice, service was good but it hurt to pay 68.00 for this meal. Won't be back.
