Experience the magic of Colonial Williamsburg by experiencing the food of the original colony. Christiana Campbell's Tavern specializes in seafood fresh from the ocean. Rich with history, the tavern was a favorite with George Washington. Owners have tried to recreate the atmosphere of the colonial times using a mixture of information obtained through artifacts, description, and other period taverns. Christiana's Crab Cakes and Sherried Shrimp, scallops, and lobster are among the featured dinner items. For dessert, try any one of a number of delicious pies and ice creams, including Lemon Chess Pie. Tavern is open seasonally, so call for details.
