Been going here for years and its by far the best italian food I have ever eaten. I have had several things on the menu, and have never been disappointed. Worth the drive and would recommend this place to everyone!

The food here is wonderful. This is located in a camp ground but the quality of the food is far above what you would expect to find in this location

Walkers Dam Grill sent out an email invitation to come and visit and offered a "1/2 OFF ONE ENTRÉE with the purchase of one entrée at regular price." Upon arrival, a sign is posted on front door that only one coupon could be used per table. That means that the three couples lured to this out-of-the-way restaurant by the ad... More

Small restaurant with a BEAUTIFUL view of the Chickahominy river. Sunsets are particularly great. Great food (great bread!) that has the taste of home-made italian.

Walkers Dam Grill is one of those places that we really enjoy going to every few weeks. The food is great and the service is pretty good. Bar drinks are available and they have a nice selection of wines. While it is slightly off the beaten trail, getting there is not really a big problem and you'll find that it... More

This is out of the way, but definitely worth the drive to get here. The owners used to own Doraldos Restaurant out by Kingsmill. They opened the Tuscan Grill in Newport News, and next week, they open Tuscan II in Williamsburg. The portions were large. Took half of my Chicken Parmesan home as did my wife with her lobster filled... More

This is our 4 time this year and every time we have enjoyed the place. I have never been able to eat all they give you. Plenty for lunch the next day. Sad that they will be closing for the season.

One of our favorite places, don't let the name fool you, they serve great food. Saw this evening they will open in Williamsburg under the Tuscany name at the former site of Holy Mackerel, can't wait. Service is good, the staff is very friendly and the food is always good and plentiful.

This place is local for me and I just found out that they are open for lunch, which is nice as there are not many local places open for lunch. The food and service is always very good. One draw back for me is its cash or check only, no plastic, no time, no way. So be sure to bring... More

Walker's Dam Grill (sounds not nice) is a fantastic restaurant at Walker's Dam, on the Chickahominy River in Lanexa. Located at 1428 Outpost Road at the ROCK-A-HOCK campground. We were 4 couples who went from Williamsburg, Virginia (about 15 Miles) on a Saturday evening. As always, the evening was perfection. I requested Veal Oscar (not on the menu) and was... More
