My husband and I had the extreme pleasure of dining at the Jefferson Restaurant while on vacation in Williamsburg, VA. We both enjoyed a very delicious meal. The creamy peanut soup was outstanding. This restaurant has been family owned and operated for 4 generations and the current owner is justifiably proud of the tradition that has been passed down. The staff is outstanding and we were treated like old friends. The total experience was one that we will long remember, and we would highly recommend the Jefferson Restaurant to anyone who wants to enjoy a delicious meal, in a warm atmosphere with wonderful service.
Very impressive - our food was lovely, the service impeccable, and the atmosphere quiet and "proper" - but they welcomed my kids - WELCOMED them. it was a great experience.
My mouth is watering just thinking about Pierces. Best Barbecue Going! Walk up to the counter and order, they'll call you when its ready. Each sandwich is made to your liking.The food is fantastic and the portions are big. Get the J.C. Special, it comes with sandwich fries and cookie. Dont forget the slaw on top of the sandwich.
I have been wanting stuffed shrimp. We were in town for the Plantation Resort, and had seen the restaurant on our tour. I ordered the stuffed shrimp, and my husband had the steak and mashed potatoes. The crabmeat tasted like cornbread. I had a Bloody Mary, and Jim had 2 Seagram's and water. We got the bill, $80. and some change. I thought Jim was joking. $8.50 for a Bloody Mary and $9.95 for a Seagram's. OUTRAGEOUS!! The service was great, but we will NOT be back.
Close to our hotel, easy to find. Very friendly staff- especially the owner, Mark. Our waitress, LeNore was superb. Loved the food and wine selection - geat variety. Enjoyed the clean, quaint and country atmosphere. We will be back the next time we're in town.
everything about this restaurant screams "stick it to the tourist!". tuesday night around 6:30; there were only 2 other couples there. that should have told us to go elsewhere, but we'd rather spend our money with locally owned restaurants than a chain. the food: we ordered crabcakes, country fried steak, fried chicken with ham, and fried chicken with ribs (was supposed to have been baked chicken). the crabcakes were delicious, but i swore i saw fake crabmeat inside. fried perfectly, great compliment of spices. the country fried steak: smothered in onions and peppers, first time we've seen that. on a 1 to 10 scale, it was a 6. the fried chicken was possibly the best i've ever tried; crispy, cooked well, juicy and tender. the ribs were pitiful; there were 4, about 2" long, and covered in what tasted like a bottled bbq sauce. they were, however, falling off the bone tender. the fried chicken/ham dinner: again, chicken was great, the ham was about as thick as we would use on a sandwich. for a $20 meal, it should have been a ham steak, at least 1/4" thick.my daughter said it best, "it felt like we were eating at someone's grandma's house. it smells weird, the food's good, but everything's old". how about spending some of that $20 a plate for FRIED CHICKEN on upgrades to your restaurant?? even my teenage son raised his eyebrows on the prices; the "specials" for 20 bucks?? THAT'S a special? $20 a plate for country fried steak? $20 for baked chicken?? and please PLEASE don't have sweet little old ladies serving dinner!!! we all felt like we were watching our own grandma struggling with heavy trays; we were taught WE serve the grandmothers, not the other way around. it made us all, including my kids, very uncomfortable. we really wanted to love this place, but no dice. it's outdated, musty smelling, prices are out of proportion to the food, and we don't want to watch sweet little old ladies waiting tables. small wonder there were only three tables filled at suppertime.
Great place to eat. The wife got the brisket and I got a half rack of ribs, about 10 Oz of pulled pork and 6 Oz of brisket. We left with a $33 tab. Price great. Food was amazing. Ribs were my favorite and the pulled pork melted in my mouth. Bbq sauce was good also, very mild sauce that I felt a little tingle after being done with my food.
I went to the Jefferson Restaurant for the special occasion to propose to my long time girlfriend. The service was fantastic and the owner came out and congratulated us. The food was excellent. This is the first online review I wrote and the Jefferson Restaurant is worth the recognition. Thank You!
I LOVE BBQ and any thing with a smokey flavor but I did not love my visit to Pierce's Pitt Bar-B-Que this past month. Me and my wife decided to go hear for lunch during our honeymoon and I ordered the BBQ and she got the chicken strips. First off, the BBQ was not smokey at all, it was way to sweet. I was confused so I thought maybe it was the type of BBQ sauce so I tried the two (unlabeled) pumps on the bar area and found that they were also a sweet apple flavor. It is a popular place so maybe people who don't like traditional smoked BBQ will love it. My wife's chicken strips were just like frozen ones we could have bought at the store. The dinning area was way to crowded, noisy, and unorganized. The atmosphere is better at most mcdonalds than it was at this restaurant. I would not suggest this place to anyone.
