    We arrived at a very busy time but seated immediately. The bartender, Shannon, took care of us and was so friendly. The shrimp and Grits were AMAZING and the sweet tea was the best we had our entire trip. Can’t wait to visit again!

    Our 7 PM reservation was 1 hour late. We were starving by the time we ate. Some menu specials were no longer available. The food we had was delicious. The atmosphere was very pleasant. I would recommend.

    Maybe a really busy night or short staffed? Slow food service. Our server seemed frazzled at the delays. However, the quality of the food and value was good.

    The food was really, really good! The portions were also huge (even the kids menu!). Service was fantastic - and we really enjoyed the old fashioned on the menu!

    Sweet Tea & Barley was a cute restaurant with a very good ambiance. I booked brunch for my Daughter's Sweet 16. We were in Williamsburg for the weekend and wanted to go somewhere special. The waitress Aretha was very nice and did a good job. We ordered the chicken club which are not chicken clubs just chicken sandwiches. The chicken on the sandwiches were inedible and gross. The menu said it was a chicken breast but two of our guests said they couldn't eat it and were grossed out. The rest of the dishes were just okay at best. The desserts were good. When I told her it was a birthday, they didn't bring out the desert with a candle which was strange. Skip this place if you can.
