We were pleasantly surprised
We were pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant in Lexana after arriving in Richmond and driving to Williamsburg. We almost thought it was closed - they could do a better job making 'Open' apparent from outside. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Enjoyed visiting with our waitress, but the other waitress and waitor in the room just hung around - annoying. The other waitress continued to talk to our waitress as though a customer was not in the restaurant - buggy. Nevertheless we enjoyed our food and were happy we stopped.

Food here was, and allways is, fantastic. Selection is varied and suits all pallates. Portions are over the top, not unusual to see each table with take home food. Highly recommend this to all foodies.

Don;t pass this little guy up
This is worth the drive....and don;t pass it up ! The food is served piping hot, the portion sizes are unbelievable(a take-home box is always to be had)the Italian food is some of the best around and the service is great. Due to its small size its a reservation needed place and don;t forget the cash...no credit cards accepted. We have been more than once and will continue to return.

What a delight this little place is. Went on Mother's Day with family who live in area and knew about it. Took a friend on following Wed. Also lives in area but had never heard of it. We enjoyed their " Two for $20" Wed special. More food than the 2 of us could eat! What fun.

What a delightful find - totally unexpected! Small and unpretentious. Just the right amount of attention from the wait staff. There was a good variety of choices, plus daily specials. Very reasonably priced. We enjoyed our dinner very much and look forward to coming back to try other dishes.

Fast before going....
Portion sizes are extra large, you will leave with a box in hand for yet another good meal.

worth the drive
First time there. Good menu options. People were very friendly. The food was excellent and the portions were more than enough. They were also accommodating for gluten free request. Off the beaten path but well worth the drive.

We have dined here many times and continue to be pleased with service, atmosphere and
Food. We were a party of 7 initially, then grew to 11. The staff accommodated our every need
Expeditiously. All of our selections were filled with flavor and expertly crafted. No doubt, we will

Don't judge a book by its cover
When I heard the name "Dam Grill" I figured, hey if the food is mediocre it sounds like a place with a nice view. Maybe a Dam, or at least water. My view was of a lot with heavy machinery! When I first arrived, I thought they must be kidding. This can't be it. I laughed along with my wife and daughter. Well. After eating the food I was pleasantly surprised. Chicken cutlet parm was just as good as any I have ever eaten in NY. The scallop appetizer was delicious and the steak I had was tasty. The place looks like an old lake cabin living room with authentic spider webbing, but the food was worth the trip from far away Fords Colony in Williamsburg. About 20 Miles and some real tight country roads, so I recommend an early dinner.

As usual the food at Walker's Dam Grill was delicious and more than I could eat. Aldo and Dora do great work here and for those that might have to travel bit to get here it is worth the trip! A reservation though not always necessary is always a good idea as the restaurant is on the small side. Once again a great time at Walker's Dam Grill!

Looks can be deceiving
Located in a campground (one that is in need of, and has been undergoing improvements...lots of construction materials and equipment scattered about), it doesn't look very promising upon arrival. The restaurant shares a building with the camp office/store, but has it's own entrance. The dining room is rather small, hence the suggestion for reservations. Of course the other reason for reservations is the food. All the eccentricities (like the walk through the prep/expedite area to be seated, and the no credit/debit card thing) are quickly overlooked when you get your food. From salad to garlic knots to the entrees, it is all outstanding and it is no wonder, despite it's location and appearance, this place is quickly developing a following.

The best food in the area.
We love going to this place! I would go every week if I could. The food is amazing & the specials make it hard to pass up. If you love Italian food this is the place for you.

This place is out of the way, but so worth the venture! We decided to eat here on our way home from Richmond. Had no idea about the place and a great fine. As soon as we got there, I quickly realized we aren't the first to come upon a this jewel. It's on camping site. So many choices it was hard decide what to order. I order this dish with scallops and shrimp with lobster & crab ravioli. The portion so big I had leftover and the sauce and flavor was so tasty. I will go out of my way to go there again.
