Diner Reviews
  • "Tried a coupe of new things this visit - the eggplant & ricotta appetizer and trietta carbonara. Both were excellent and more than you could eat. The appetizer in particular is sized for sharing"

  • "Best Italian food ever! Definitely will be back. Everything was so good, and such a variety of dishes to choose from. Will be sure to bring our out of town guests to this restaurant."

  • "An excellent destination by boat with ample docking available. The Wednesday night special is a very good deal and includes an excellent salad, numerous appetizer choices, and many main courses available for one low price. The food is very good with ample portions served by an excellent attentive staff. A bit out of the way but well worth the visit."

  • "Even though the restaurant is a bit out of the way, it's a great place for a good meal. We were in Williamsburg and wanted to drive a bit from the city to find a good meal. We found it at Walker's Dam Grill. We had read about it online. When we arrived it was very busy inside and since it was a nice day in May, we asked if seating was outside. They said 'yes' and we were seated. It would have been great if the construction machines doing work on the dam were not sitting right in front of us. At the end it got a bit busy when a big group was seated at two or three tables. The food was great. we shared a delicious appetizer, a sort of cheese pizza with a salsa on top. I couldn't finish my salmon, but took it home to enjoy later. "

  • "Have dined here on many occasions. When first found it was the "best kept secret". Now the word is out. This gem of a dining location is unsurpassed in food and service. Portions are allways plentiful, more than enough for a next day or two meal. Italian food extraordinary. Always pleased with selections. The flavors in each dish leaves the diner wanting more. Not a Weight Watcher's dining place, too much temptation. "

  • "As a frequent diner at Walkers Dam, the food is always excellent. On this trip we were seated in the new dining room. It is quite small and there was a large party at one table that was quite loud. Once they left, everything was fine. Service was excellent."

  • "As always the food was outstanding I am hooked on the mussels and linguine with shrimp, clams and calamari we brought friends who are now a big fan My drive from Williamsburg is worth it!"

  • "It's in the middle of nowhere at a campground, but the food is fantastic! You need a reservation on the weekend for sure. The portions are huge and the specials are usually inventive. Great to get wine by the carafe too."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "This was a disappointing meal - service was barely adequate and food was just so-so. I had pork shank which was too heavily salted, husband had lasagna which I tasted and Stouffer's frozen lasagna is MUCH better than theirs. Strange taste and texture. There are too many good restaurants close to Williamsburg to enjoy so will not be a repeat customer."
    Dined on 8/31/2013
  • "the staff are wonderful, the food is delicious, everything is homemade, the garlic knots are awesome, my husband love the rockfish stuffed with crabmeat with creamy garlic sauce, had it twice last weekend. one of our favorite restaurants"

  • "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."

  • "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 return."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Hidden in the back of a campground - this restaurant is worth the trouble finding. Best Italian food I've had outside of New York. Disappointing they don't take credit cards - it cost me $5.00 to take money out of their ATM between my bank and their ATM's fees."
    Dined on 2/14/2013
  • "Really good Italian food - such a surprise out in the middle of nowhere! Wines by the glass were only $6.00 and the chianti was very good. Service was very good, in a downhome way - don't expect upscale! Ambiance is definitely NOT upscale, so don't go looking for that, and be happy with the food!"

  • "This is our fourth visit to this warm exceptional gem of a dining experience. We tout the taste, portions and friendly staff. Tucked away in a campground in Lanexa, Virginia, I can only say you'all come on down and enjoy."

  • "I was very disappointed with the Crab Cakes for the price. You could tell that it was crab from a can instead of good quality lump crab which was what I expected for the price, the quality of food was just not there for me. I will not be returning!"
