A word from Dudley's Bistro
Chef Jim Kennedy first opened Dudley's Farmhouse Grille in 2007, located in a 1905 farmhouse Dudley's quickly became an area favorite. The use of Fresh Local ingredients whenever possible, Organic Herbs and Wild Game were unique to the area's dining choices. The restaurant recently relocated to 4904 Courthouse Street in New Town, in the heart of Williamsburg. The new Name "Dudley's Bistro", and location have quickly become a favorite for locals and tourists alike. We still use the freshest and finest ingredients available, and we change our menu every two weeks to keep things fresh and interesting.

    Not that it's a bad idea to dine alone, but if you bring someone with you you get the chance to taste something else equally wonderful. Whether it is the Cajun rockfish or a perfectly done filet, everyone at the table was pleased with every component of their meal. Add to this the outstanding Caymus 40th anniversary Cabernet, and you have a wonderful evening under the stars, or the clouds... It mattered not. One of these days I think we will just go and have nothing but soup. They are that good.

    Ate here by myself before an outing the next day. I started with their shrimp bisque which was rich and creamy and then had the twin quail on a mushroom grit cake with a mushroom sauce. Two glasses of a CA pinot noir accompanied my meal. It was a quiet night, the food and service were quite good, and the chef made the rounds asking how everyone's meals were. A nice, quiet, comfy spot. Recommended.

    We enjoyed the Bold Rock Apple Cider and Aleworks Pumpkin Ale. The bread was warm and served with herb olive oil. The Mixed Greens Salad came with dried cranberries, spiced pecans, and a creamy balsamic dressing. We enjoyed the Cauliflower Potato Leek soup and Pumpkin Ginger Soup. The soup portions were small for $8 but delicious. Shrimp and Grits was a little spicy. It came with jumbo shrimp and a solid grit cake. The Venison Chops - juicy meat with fingerling potatoes and green beans in a red wine demi glace. The Medallions of Pork Tenderloin - pan seared, seasoned with salt and pepper and very tender and served over a wide pasta with a sweet sauce. We weren't a big fan of the Hawaiian Sea Salt Butterscotch Creme Brulee.

    Absolutely Best food in town!!!! It's hard to pick favorite dishes--Cajun rockfish with gumbo gravy, Prime filet mignon, Wild Boar Sausage or lobster mac? The atmosphere is perfect for relaxing after a full day! Very attentive service. I'm especially grateful for the royal treatment I receive as a "local."

    A great little gem in Williamsburg that I was happy to find on Open Table. We had the pleasant opportunity to chat with the Chef as he was enjoying a glass of wine on the patio. His obvious enthusiasm for cooking was apparent in his description of how he prepared one of that night's special convinced me to try it, and I'm glad I did. It was so delicious! Everything from beginning to end was fantastic. Don't skip the handmade deserts and coffee that they roast on site. The service was warm friendly as well. If I didn't live so far away, this would quickly become a favorite spot!

    We were greeted at the door, and our seats on the patio were ready for us. We each started with a different salad. My kale salad was delicious and perfectly dressed, and my husband's mixed greens also were very good. He had the filet, and I had the pork medallions; both dishes were beautifully presented and cooked; the wine we chose went well with the food. Dessert was the chocolate mousse - divine! - for me, and husband enjoyed his brandy alexander. The wait staff was excellent, and I love that the chef comes around and asks how things are, etc. We have always been delighted with each visit. Try it, you'll like it!

    Dudley's provided a sumptuous meal in a pleasing setting with a knowledgeable server. The manager was pleasnt & attentive. Food arrived hot & the Cajun grouper was an out of the ordinary preparation with a bit of spice, but not heated. The menu brings wildlife & specialty items such as quail & venison- a welcome innovation here in Williamsburg. We will definitely return, & make Dudley's one of our "go to" places for dining.

    My husband and I ate at Dudley's because we read about it in the '30 places you should eat in Virginia before you die' article by hamptonroads.com. We thought the food was great. We had a melon and prosciutto appetizer, and for our entrees I had scallops and he had duck. Everything was fabulous! The service was very slow, and the owner was a little overbearing. I felt like he stopped by our table a little too often, creating the impression that he was breathing over us during dinner. We had a lovely time, but the ambiance would have been better with a quicker wait staff and fewer visits from the owner.

    We stopped here for a late lunch and were promptly welcomed by the restaurant manager. The restaurant is small, but beautiful and so inviting! Our party of four each selected a different item. The chicken salad on croissant with a tasty green salad was delicious according to my elderly mom. Our son loved the Kobe beef burger; my husband thoroughly enjoyed his patty melt, and I loved my lamb burger oozing with tzatziki sauce and accompanied by beautifully roasted and salted potato wedges. We had NO room for dessert, but will definitely return many times. Thank you, Dudley's!

    We had dinner at Dudley's Friday night with another couple, and all four of us raved about our meals...ranging from sea bass to sautéed scallops to a beautiful steak. This restaurant is great for intimate get-togethers. The paint colors and paintings all blend to give diners a great place to enjoy fantastic food. Special thanks to Jack, the manager. He stopped by our table often to inquire about the food and service. And John, our server, was equally attentive. We had a great evening and dine there as often as we can.

    I've been eating here since Jim moved from the farm house, and this has been one of my few favorite places in town! However, this time, it was unbelievable! The food was taken to a new level, maybe. Because chef Kennedy is back in the kitchen himself doing most of it, but man, the food was out of this world!!!! Bravo!!!

    We are excited that Dudley's Bistro is only a short, pleasant drive away. Taking advantage of an evening with cooler temps and low humidity, we sat on the patio and enjoyed impeccable service, a glass of wine, and Chef Jim's culinary talent! Fresh and flavorful are key words here. The watermelon gazpacho was first-rate with just the right amount of heat. My husband & his brother found the veal chops sizeable and perfectly cooked, accompanied by a delicious mushroom risotto. My sister-in-law and I found the fresh scallops & crab cakes, both highlighted with local corn, a delight. Do not miss the croissant bread pudding if available. We look forward to our next visit and discovering what new creations Chef has to offer. Highly recommended!

    A perfect Father's Day gift! We dine at Dudley's as often as we can and the food, wine and service are always outstanding. My Father's Day treat included exceptional wait-service as well as seafood dinners for my wife and I. Her Hawaiian swordfish was fresh and delicious and my pan seared scallop appetizer in a corn and red pepper relish, followed by the crab cake dinner was excellent. For desert, we split a piece of home made goat-cheese cheesecake. It was fantastic! Dudley's provides gourmet food at affordable prices. Menu items include fish, seafood, steaks (including Kobe) and other items - something for everyone's taste. They also have a variety of home made desserts to provide the perfect finish to any meal.

    I travel throughout the US and Canada and while away from my family I make up for it by indulging in amazing food :). As a standard, I use open table to find amazing local restaurants. This restaurant missed the mark completely and should not be on open table. I ordered a 50 steak and the explanation on the menu in comparison to what I received was absolutely laughable. The steak, first off, was suppose to be medium rare and arrived less than lukewarm and beyond raw. The 2 small carrots were barely cooked and only slightly shaved (it was essentially a raw carrot with the steam still on it). I suppose it was for presentation but the taste was terrible. This is literally my first review, I hated my experience that much I felt I had to share.

    Not my first trip to Dudley's but perhaps my last. The beer selection is great, and the Allagash Curieux was the highlight of the meal. Food was uneven - the scallops appetizer seemed a bit under-cooked, and I think $14 for two scallops is a bit high, especially when it's pretty ordinary. The swordfish main course was very good, cooked just right and with a tasty sauce, but the fingerling potatoes swerved with it must have come straight out of the fridge. To be fair, I was brought some warm potatoes when I brought this to the managers attention. The server was pleasant but not particularly attentive or effective. I've given Dudley's an overall "good" rating, but for the price it needs to be better than just good.

    Have mixed review. The swordfish special was moist and exceptionally prepared. She asked for extra beans in lieu do potato, but had to ask again when the plate arrived with no extra portion. The wild boar special was most disappointing. Requested medium and it was medium rare to rare. Had to ask for a steak knife to cut through a bit tough chop. Had three small 1/2" chops. Sauce was just OK, as was mushroom risotto. Then came the shocker. The price was $39!!! Wow. Way overpriced for the value. Guess I should have asked for the price when special was presented. My mistake. Was a slow weeknight, so chef stopped by table then manager twice trying to sell the dessert menu. A bit irritating. Was good overall, but would not return.

    The atmosphere was quiet, great for conversation, and very cozy. The staff was friendly and attentive. Make sure you make a reservation as there are only about 30-tops in the restaurant. They had a wonderful craft beer selection - good local choices too. The chef has a deft hand - everything was seasoned well, flavors were balanced, everything was perfectly cooked, and the desserts were perfect (not overly sweet, but nice and light). If you're in Williamsburg, please check this restaurant out!

    A very small restaurant in a modern shopping center. The window seats look straight in to the adjoining Z Pizza restaurant next door. Only 3 other tables for the owner, manager, chef and two servers to pour their attention on. Service from the very knowledgable waiter was particularly attentive. Good but small wine list, full bar. Be careful of the old style French cuisine, swimming in clarified butter, the lobster bisque was pure cream. In my opinion the butter overwhelmed the natural taste of the food, which is unfortunate as this place as potential.

    We had dinner here to celebrate a graduation. Not a very big room, but plenty of room at the table. We had a delicious meal along with wine, beers and other drinks. It was a very busy weekend, which might be the reason why from the extensive beer and wine list, at least two beers and one bottle of wine was out of stock. We also finished off one of the desserts. It was an expensive meal, but not more than what we would have paid at other higher end restaurants in Williamsburg. A great place for a special meal. The chef and owner of the place asked us if we were enjoying the meal and was very friendly. A really nice find. If it hadn't been raining, I assume that there might have been people eating at tables outside.

    We arrived earlier than our reservation and asked to be seated in the bar. There was no bar, but we decided to sit outside for a glass of wine. When we told the waiter we would go inside for dinner, he took up our wine glasses and menus and moved us inside despite the fact that we still had some time before our reservation. Inside we ordered a bottle of white wine which was brought to our table and then left without an ice bucket. Later we noticed several tables with white wine in buckets, including a table being served by our waiter. The food was tasty, but not exceptional. The decor is understated, but attractive. For a Saturday, there were only 5 tables of people. Hopefully, the service will improve, as well as the attendance.

    We were looking for a place that would be different from our normal haunts and found Dudley’s Bistro on Open Table. When we arrived, they seemed confused about the reservation and said “Oh, you must have gotten in right under the wire.” It was 6:30 and there were only two other tables occupied. It took about 20 minutes to get the drink order filled. The food was not spectacular – though the price was. Give this one a pass if only for their really bad service – I don’t like to reward this kind of attitude in a business.

    Dudley's came thru again with a great Easter menu of fresh finds! Hawaiian prawns, lamb, tuna....all delicious and a fantastic craft beer menu. I look forward to warmer weather and the chance to linger for outside dining and cocktails.

    Service was friendly and personable - really liked the waiter - but it was all too slow. Meats, wine, & desserts were delightful, but sides and bread not so great.
