The food was amazing and the server was one of the best I have ever had. Definitely recommended for any special occasion or a romantic date.

If you can get past the early
If you can get past the early 1970s decor, the food and the service are great! I highly recommend.

Dining at the Seafare
We have eaten at this restaurant many times and the food and service are consistently excellent. We left our left-over meal in a bag at the restaurant by mistake, and the staff tracked us down before we left the parking lot to delivered the bag.

We were in Williamsburg for the LPGA tournament, staying at a timeshare, and wanted a nice dinner out with our friends. We were two couples who love good food and atmosphere, and were delighted with our choice. All four dinners were excellent, well prepared and artfully served. Our server was attentive without smothering us, and was very nice. The ambiance was what one would expect of such an establishment, and the price (around $50 USD per person with wine) was reasonable. We all agreed that we would go back again some day soon!

Start with Dessert
Excellent. We will be back, though we might have to start with dessert - too full after the meal.

The seafood in the cermanic disth was delicious. We will certainly return to this restaurant on our next visit to Williamsburg.

A Pleasant Experience
Our party of 9 had dinner at the Seafare on Mother's Day and we were also celebrating our son's college graduation. We were seated at a large round table in a corner and that allowed us to have whole group conversations. Our waiter was extremely courteous and everyone enjoyed their meal. It was a perfect choice for our large group.

Overall good, minor deficiencies
Overall a real good experience. We arrived before they opened and the outdoor wood decking is a little loose. GREAT food but put all guests close together instead of spreading them out. We were the first and the very next couple was put directly behind us with the back of the booths connected so we moved to a different table. I'm lactose intolerant and told them that at the beginning. We are used to sorbet being served instead of sherbert and sherbert was given. Simple but painful mistake. The food was phenomenal. Other than the sherbert thing, the service was awesome from the waitress. Would definitely recommend. We don't drink but the wine list looked like it had plenty to choose from.

great food and service
this restaurant has fresh seafood prepared to perfection. Soft shell crabs were not overdone as most restaurants do and my husbands scallops were perfect as well. Waiters are dressed in suits and give great service.

Wonderful Birthday Dinner
The Seafare made our father's 89th birthday dinner a special occasion indeed. The host and waiter made our family feel most welcome and my father was delighted with the extra attention he received. Everyone in our party enjoyed the meal and the service was absolutely outstanding. The waiter, Eric, was most entertaining with his flair for pouring coffee and making table-side irish coffee and banas foster. Even in 89 years my father had not had dessert service to match! I would definitely recommend The Seafare for special occasions or for any meal you want to make more memorable. We will definitely be back next time we are in Williamsburg.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding in every way
Every time we are in the area we make it a MUST to visit The SEAFAIR.... For the last 6 years we have dined there they have always rated a 6 when a top possible score is 5.........

Father's Day Treat
We have eaten at The Seafare many times but always having their crabcake special. This time I wanted steak and so we shared the filet mignon. It was well prepared and very tasty.

Seafare is very good place for food
Very good food. Very good service. The food prices are on the high side, but it is worth the money. I am a lover of fish and eat it often. We all had some of the best fish we have eaten.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Seafarer has outstanding
The Seafarer has outstanding seafood. The seafood casserole and fried platter were very good. The wine list is limited but extremely well-priced. The service was attentive without being hovering. Karen, our server, went above and beyond with our Cherries Jubilee. A job well done. You won't find better seafood in the area.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
GREAT Food and Service!!
A great gem of a restaurant on Richmond Road! The seafood was delicious--crab cakes with hardly any filler and lump crab meat! Fried seafood platter cooked just right and very large portions. We will be back!

This was our fifth annual
This was our fifth annual visit to the Seafarer, and once again, a wonderful dinning experience. The food is beyond compare and service is explicable. We love this restaurant and highly recommend dinning at this establishment.

We celebrated our 1st wedding
We celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at the restuarant, and traveled from Maryland to celebrate our 28th last week. The quality of service and the food continue to be excellent.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have gone to the Sea Fare every time we go to Williamsburg and they have yet to disappoint. The food is excellent, the service is supreme and we will always make it a point to visit any time we are in town. Overall a 10 in every way possible!
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the trip
The Seafarer Restaurant is always a destination when we head to Newport News,Virginia on vacation. Why? They have,in my opinion, the best tasting lump crab cakes in the area---all lump crabmeat with just a little filler to hold it together, and two good size crab cakes per meal. Can't wait for my next visit.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I celebrated our
My wife and I celebrated our 4th Wedding Anniversary here and received excellent service and food. Tracy, our food server, was excellent and very attentive. The food was some of the best in Williamsburg and the price was very reasonable. The wine list sold by the bottle was very good; the by the glass was obviously Virigina wine, but not too bad considering this fact. We will definitely come back to this restaurant again and we highly recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in not only good seafood, but a very pleasant dining experience.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is delicious; the wait staff is above any wait staff we have ever had. It is a great find; we loved it!
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good for steaks too!
We were met by a very friendly helpful gentleman as we arrived at the restaurant and immediately sat at a table in the "cruise room" which was most pleasant.
As the non-seafood eater, I was concerned that the steak I ordered would be grilled on the same grill as a fish item and therefore have a "fish taste" but I was pleasantly surprised with the taste and quality of the meat.
We will be back!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lunch with friends
We had the restaurant to ourselves, just another couple and ourselves. We eat at The Seafare often and it was even better having friends to join us.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thank you so much for a wonderful dining experience. It was my mom's 67th Birthday and we had a lovely time. The food was delicous and everyone was so nice and made our special occassion very memorable. This is one of our favorite spots in the burg!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food & Service were Awesome!
Love this place! Hubby & I both loved our dinners. And our waiter, who was a college student from Bulgaria, was very professional and attentive. For dessert, I ordered Flaming Cherries Jubilee, which our waiter made right at our table while we watched -- and it tasted really awesome, by the way. You cannot go wrong with this place when you are in Williamsburg.

Great Find in Williamsburg
First time dining at Seafare and we were pleasantly surprised. Food was delicious and service was excellent. We are locals and will definitely consider this one of our top choices for reataurants in Williamsburg.

Best meal we had in Williamsburg
This restaurant was 5 stars all the way.if you want the one place to go for a great evening, go to that restaurant.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best restaurants around.
The Seafare came as a recommendation from a friend, and what a treat it was. The food was exceptional...I had the Halibut and my husband had the crabcakes. The wait staff was also very attentive. The ambiance relaxing. The Seafare is definitely on our radar for future visits, and I will be sure to pass on the good word!
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the ambiance and service. Food was excellent.

Still not a disappointment
We look forward to our seafood stop at the Seafare Restaurant whenever we travel to Newport News,Virginia and it still was not a disappointment. The service and food were excellent. We ordered the shrimp scampi and the crabcake dinners which we thoroughly enjoyed. I am a crabcake junkie and the two large lump crabcakes made my taste buds sing. I always save one to take home so I can have that same enjoyment the next day. I also enjoy the lunn bread that is served first and the corn muffin that is served with the meal. I can't speak about the desserts because I am too full to enjoy it.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good seafood in Williamsburg
My partner had crab cakes - excellent - large(!) chunks of crab meat with virtually no filler and broiled. My halibut fell in the good range - slightly over-cooked. Serving sizes were more than adequate. We shared cherries jubilee for dessert. Servers were very active during our stay and were dressed in black. Service for us was very good. We were seated in a booth covered in leather/naugahyde which was comfortable. Color was dark green and woodwork a dark shade made the restaurant seem dark. There were a number of sea-faring artifacts displayed throughout the restaurant. WE would return.
10/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a group of 12 and had a very pleasant experience. Pace was a little slow but that gave us more time ti talk.
Wwe were seated in a semi-private area. However, it was a little dark and hard to read the menu's.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another wonderful dinner at Seafare
We recently returned to the Seafare for the 6th time. Once again the food was delicious, and the staff was welcoming and helpful. We have come here alone as a couple, as a family group of 12 and as a small group. Each time the service is outstanding and the food is memorable. Thank you for your consistently excellent service and delicious food. We will look forward to returning next time we are in Williamsburg.

Best Crab Cakes
The crab cakes, a house specialty, were totally outstanding!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very good, but our service provided by Sanchez was beyond outstanding. The tableside flambe was incredibly yummy. Even my picky eight-year-old son enjoyed his food and commented that it was good! I will return and I certainly recommend.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a very pleasant surprise.
This was a very pleasant surprise. We thought it would be another OK restaurant on the strip. We entered and discovered the atmosphere to be upscale but comfortable for the casual customer. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was excellent.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great ambiance; great service; clam chowder was great! Nice "touches" such as sorbets and breads between courses. Fish was fresh.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still magnificent. Always dine here twice on our annual return vacations. Always perfection. Don't change a thing. Thank you. See you again soon.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Best in Town
We spent a week in town and wish we had started with this restaurant. The food quality and quantity were very good. The scallops were perfect and the service was expert. This is the only restaurant we ate at in Williamsburg, that we would recommend or dine at again.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always love to return to
We always love to return to this gem. Perfectly prepared seafood with exquisite attention to every detail. Highly recommend for any occasion or just to enjoy being pampered. We shall return.
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a extraordinary dinner, Eric our server was beyond fantastic, all in all one of,the best dining experiences ever.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food. Don't be fooled by the
Started with a Lemon Drop martini, one of the best I've ever had. My husband had escargot that was served in the shells, they were delicious! Caesar salad was large and in a light dressing, very nice. I had the super seafood casserole and my husband had the super sauton. Both were larger than we expected and filled with a combo of perfectly cooked shrimp lobster crab and scallops. Delicious!

We LOVE this place. We go
We LOVE this place. We go there whenver we are in Williamsburg. This time we went with a party of 12- 5 kids...and it was wonderful as always!!! My kids love the sherbert, breads and nice china that is ready for them...

Food selection was very good
Food selection was very good and the atmosphere was pleasant. We would probably go back again if we visit Williamsburg.

My wife and I had the Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner special on the evening of Thanksgiving Day. It was a hearty 4 course dinner with turkey and ham. It was so much food that we took home enough leftovers for another full meal. The appetizer of turkey and rice soup was a tasty thick soup with large portions of turkey. The chestnut stuffing on the main course was excellent. There were five choices of breads. Overall, an excellent meal for the money. The restaurant has several fascinating original paintings from a Richmond. Va. artist of various types of ships which have backlighting through the windows on the ships which give the dining rooms an interesting and elegant atmosphere emphasizing its cuisine as a seafood restaurant.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Without shadow of a doubt we will be returning to Seafare. The ambiance, the service and the quality of food and wine made for a very memorable occasion. The Cruise room was where we dined this time and the ambiance there added to the whole evening with some overseas visitors who were very impressed.
I'll be back - this was the third visit and inevitably there will be more - my favorite Sunday lunch venue.
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a last minute change of plans and decided to try this restaurant and we're glad we did. Never assume that because a restaurant has been around for awhile that it is no longer up the standards of the day. We had great food and great service. We have already recommended it to friends and would do so again.
