I let the kids pick out a place and they did a great job, I must say. The atmosphere, food, and service was very good. The staff was very courteous and went out of their way to help us. Excellent food and excellent experience!

Located between william & Mary and historic area. Food was worth the wait and at a very fair price. Staff did a nice job and made you feel welcome.

Whenever we visit Williamsburg for lunch we have a bowl of classic French Onion soup at Blue Talon, and accompany it with a sandwich. This time it was the French dip. Yum. We love the ambiance and have never been disappointed by the food. There...More

Lunch with a dear friend, we share most meals so we can taste as much as possible. The chicken and mushroom crepes were perfect: hot, generous amounts of chicken and mushroom, sauce was flavorful and just the right amount. Crepes were crepes and not chewy,...More
