About

Walker's Dam Grill serves up traditional Italian cuisine. Its homey setting is welcoming, and guests can also enjoy the wonderful waterfront view while dining outdoors. Owner Aldo Bertuglia opened Walker's Dam Grill for locals and travelers to taste the flavors of Italy right in Lanexa, Virginia. Shrimp cocktail, fried calamari or crab-stuffed mushrooms make for tasty appetizers. Guests can feast on an entrée of linguine with clams, veal marsala, New York strip steak with roasted vegetables or a rack of lamb. This restaurant also serves pizza with a choice of tasty toppings and delicious desserts.

Walker's Dam Grill offers a variety of drinks with meals, including wine and specialty cocktails. It is open for dinner and lunch services Wednesday through Sunday.

This is one our favorite eating places. You can't get better Italian food in the Williamsburg area.

The staff was very welcoming and friendly. However the food was disappointing. I had the Chicken Limone and my spouse had the Flounder Francese, dishes which we have both enjoyed before in various restaurants. While I realize that each chef puts their own touch on a dish, the sauce for this was so heavy that it completely overpowered the flavor of both the chicken and the fish. Additionally, the sauces tasted the same for both dishes. The chocolate cake with raspberry sauce that we had for dessert was very good.

A little off the beaten path but the freshly made meals is well worth the trip. The prices are reasonable and the wait staff friendly.

We were staying in Williamsburg so finding Walker Dam took a little effort, but the GPS took us right to it and it was well worth the trip! Food was plentiful, authentic Italian, and wonderful! We split the mussels marinara appetizer and it was delicious and all were pleased with their entrees. Be sure to try the garlic knots! Our server was excellent and very friendly and helpful, and the owner was also very friendly and came around to our table to see how our meal was and just to chat. We were there in the winter, but in the summer there is also an outdoor patio or deck overlooking the water. The restaurant is in a campground which was pretty deserted in December, but the restaurant was packed. I'm not sure where all the people came from, but I think in the summer reservations would be a must.

We shared the veal Marsala which was to die for. I felt like I was back home in NY on Arthur Avenue. The pasta was silky. I bet it is home made. While this place is off the beaten path it is worth the ride. My second time here. Looking forward to another great meal!

I've been here more times than I can count and it is reliably outstanding every time.

I get the same thing 95% of the time - boring perhaps, but it is just so darn good.

If you get an appetizer, by the time you're done with salad and the unbelievable warm garlic knots, you can count on needing a take-home box. The entry sizes are enormous. Our dinner leftovers are usually our lunch the next day.

If you dine here and don't yearn to return, I'd be very surprised.

Not too many dining options in the area - happened upon Walker's Dam a few weeks ago, and judging on its location, didn't have high hopes. Once again, I have been taught that you cannot judge a book by its cover - EXCELLENT Italian food!

The grill has great specials that make the trip to its somewhat out of the way location worth while. The service and food are always good. The wait staff is especially friendly.

Excellent food; lots of it. Great service by a young man whose name escapes me. A neighbor told us about this outstanding place tucked away on the Chickhominy River....what a find. Uses cash or check only which was a pain. THanks for using OpenTable altho.

In a nutshell, this is the best Italian food anywhere in the Williamsburg area. Very flavorful, portions are good-sized and everything is fresh. It really is located in the middle of nowhere unless you are familiar with the local campground. The one beef - and it is a big one, is that THEY DO NOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS. We would go here more often if they did. I don't carry a lot of cash on me and refuse to pay ATM fees.

The Walker's Dam Grill is the most wonderful discovery we've made since moving to the Williamsburg, VA area. Tucked away in an RV park on the Chickohominee River, this marvelous little place serves some of the best Italian food this side of Little Italy. Everything we had was fresh, cooked to order and delicious. Can't wait to return and share this with our friends in Ford's Colony.

Our frequent visits to this ristorante speaks well of not only the food, but the service. This place is like sitting at Momma's table growing up in an Italian household. Once again our thanks to Tony, Barbara and the kitchen staff for another wonderful meal. Buona mangiata.
