We had a wonderful experience at the Seafarer last night. The food was fabulous! Our server Christine was excellent, so pleasant and efficient! The general manager, Howard, stopped by our table to say “hello” and truly topped off the evening with his outgoing personality. I highly recommend this restaurant!!

This is a great place for a quiet special dinner. The ambiance is quiet and fancy. The service is excellent. The food is very good and the price is very reasonable for a "fancy restaurant".

Once again we stopped in to the Seafare for dinner. When we are in Williamsburg, this is our must have. The food is terrific and the service excellent.

I had a wonderful time here with my husband. Our server was funny and attentive and our food was delicious. I was surprised how empty the place was but maybe it was because of COVID. Not sure. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely return. Their cornbread is amazing!

I came to Virginia in 1967, and Seafare was in its prime. It had competition, but not much: the nearest I can remember was in Yorktown—and the owners of that restaurant have died, and now the very building has been erased from the Yorktown waterfront. The future of any restaurant is hard to predict. But Seafare has survived in the o ... read more

Wonderful service with attention to detail. Would recommend the sauton. Pecan pie also delicious. Afterwards, we had a lively conversation with the owner and her son, who is now the owner/general manager. Their family established the restaurant 47 years ago! The decor boasts an interesting collection of Jack Woodson art.

The service was amazing. I was skeptical at first because of the dated decor, but I quickly realized that it is part of their charm. My husband had the seafood platter, and I had the calamari. Both were delicious. The next time we are in town we will be back!
