Nice ambiance and old-timey feel. I liked the table decor and presentation of the tea and desserts. It felt like the tables were close together and we were jammed in a bit. We were a group of 10 and I didn't care for the server continuously yelling to get our attention... we are not that loud, mostly women in our... More

Came here with several people and we ordered the full tea. I had been here before and remembered the food being a little better. Some of the sandwiches were very sparse on filling. The tea and desserts were very good. It is a lovely place and the owner is very charming and welcoming. We did have one server who was... More

The food was delicious, and our server was very pleasant. Whether you're looking for lunch or an afternoon treat, this place is worth a... More

We shared a Lucheon tea of cucumber sandwiches and ham salad sandwiches. The Tea included a skewer of fruit, two small scones with devon... More

I love the experience at Blue Willow Tea Room. I took my mother here for mother's day and came back two weeks later for my friends bachelorette event. Highly recommend the Full Afternoon Tea. It serves two people. You pick one tea for the tea pot, two soups, two scones, and the tower of tea sandwiches, appetizers, and sweets. I... More

Very nice. Best waitress. Clotted Devonshire cream. Excellent house choices. Tea bags though. Might not quite live up to high expectations of a Brit.

Next time you visit Petersburg, be sure to tour Olde Towne where they film the new TV series "Mercy Street" and another new series called "TURN". After your tour be sure and stop in at the Blue Willow Tea Room and experience "a spot of tea", as you sit "amongst the antiques" in this c.1815 Federal townhouse. They offer a... More

The food was lovely and traditionally presented with scones and clotted cream with preserves. Our server was delightful as were the owners of this quaint little place. There are several gift...
