The original King's Arms Tavern was constructed in 1772 under the direction of Jane Vobe and immediately became the tavern of choice for the upper echelons of Colonial Williamsburg's society. Today, the tavern has been reconstructed so that visitors can enjoy a delicious meal in a fashionable colonial setting. Little details like the period piece descriptions on the menu and the colonial offerings, will make patrons feel like they have stepped back in time. At dinner, the restaurant is lit entirely by candlelight, and musicians dressed in colonial garb serenade patrons. Known for its hearty American meals, its specialties include Peanut Soupe, Romaine Hearts Salat, and Tavern Ice Cream.

However, lunch and dinner should not be missed either, as the diner's giant sandwiches and classic hot plates are just as praise-worthy.
