Came here on a Saturday evening with a party of four. Restaurant was busy but service was very good. The problem was the food. I had pumpkin pork lasagna but it tasted like pork barbeque and salt. There was not hint of pumpkin and it was very heavy with no real distinctive taste. A friend had blackened flounder, the special... More

Second Street never disappoints. We make it a restaurant that we visit upon our return to Williamsburg. The BBQ chicken pizza was delicious and my burger was very good. Chyna was our server and was very attentive. We always enjoy our time there and our meal.

We returned to Second St. Bistro this April based on our amazing experience last year. We were not disappointed! We enjoyed top notch salads, appetizer and entrees. We appreciate that they offer many gluten free options that actually taste great. And our server, Sierra was fantastic! She was very friendly, helpful, and attentive. We really enjoyed talking with her and... More

This little Bistro is right off the Colonial Parkway and is away from the crowds of Colonial Williamsburg. I ordered food for pick up and it was ready at the bar when I arrived. They were super busy and getting busier. I had ordered the Bacon Tomato Grilled Cheese and upgraded to the onion rings. The onion rings were sweet... More

Excellent Food and Exceptional service. Our waiter John sincerely went above and beyond! The crab corn shower was out of this world as was the brussel sprouts with bacon. The ribs were "fall off the bone" delectable

Second Street American Bistro was a great suggestion given to us by an employee of the condos where we were staying. It was a very nice upscale atmosphere and an incredible menu to select from. The service we received from Matty and her trainee Erin (not sure if I spelled the names correctly) was outstanding. The entrée portions was plentiful... More

Came here on a whim, just looking for something decent that wasn't a chain restaurant. The prices are good for the food you get and it is beyond tasty. The steak was moist and flavorful, the staff was extremely friendly and attentive, and the ambience was inviting and relaxing. They have a gluten free menu, not a gluten free kitchen... More

This was one of the most delicious meals we had during our Washington DC/Virginia trip. My husband's steak was cooked perfectly medium rare. They have interesting pizzas such as duck confit and pumpkin and one with apples, bacon, and cheddar, both of which were delicious. They also have some of their own wines. We had a petit Shiraz and were... More
