Charles City Tavern

1 post in this topic

So, the family trip to Williamsburg is complete! We stumbled upon the Charles City Tavern on Route 5 (9220 John Tyler Memorial Highway) and it was so good that we went twice! The owners, Cate and Mike, could not be more fun. She pours a mean drink and loves to chat. The tavern is located in a beautiful 1889 farmhouse on a real, working farm including real working farm cats who come to visit the diners and barn swallows nesting on the porch and swooping through the lovely garden.

But enough about the lovely ambiance, check out the food! Plump fried oysters, shrimp and grits, melt in your mouth veal chops, great desserts!
