We had the new year's eve dinner and were a little disappointed. We didn't know if the choices were what they were on other nights, but each entree selection came at a set price and all with the same limited choice of salads, soup and desserts. Our server, Lupita, was excellent, and kept a smile on her face the entire... More

We had breakfast every day as part of our hotel package. We ate here all 5 mornings of our trip. The buffet was very good although the choices were not huge. The food qualtiy is excellent and the staff is fantastic. We had brunch on Sunday and the extra choices were awesome! We would recommend Traditions for breakfast.

This restaurant offers a lovely breakfast buffet until 10:30 a.m. My husband was satisfied with the variety and preparations. There was a massive amount of gluten free options as well as gluten options. They are conscious of diet and seasoning and ask about you preferences. I ordered off the menu and had the 3-sisters hash with hollandaise and enjoyed the... More

A full menu was offered, but we opted for the buffet. A bit pricey at $20 apiece, but the options and ease for dining made it worthwhile. After breakfast, we didn't need to eat again until evening. From you-pick-the-ingredients ommlettes to all types of breakfast foods (including casseroles and pan-fried grits), you couldn't go wrong.

The breakfast here is amazing and plentiful. The buffet is exceptional and the staff will not leave you wanting for anything. Although the major taverns in the Colonial District are great-Traditions will take them head to head. Great place and convenient.

Ate 1 breakfast and 1 dinner, I felt the breakfast was a bit pricey for just a breakfast but the dinner was quite nice to be able to choose from the full meal which included soup salad main entree and dessert. Or you could just get the soup and salad bar, very nice. I had the beef pot pie, quite... More

Although the service was great and the food good, the restaurant was a bit of a let-down after dining at some of the the other Colonial Williamsburg options. Traditions will not be on our list of restaurants if we make a return trip.

We have been staying at the Williamsburg Lodge each year for the last 5 years. Traditions breakfast buffet is exceptional. We have also eaten dinner there and the food is quite good. Service at Traditions is very friendly and also enjoyable.

Such a treat to dine with these folks! A+. experience. Highly recommend this first rate dining experience. Breakfast buffet was very good as was our room service burger and fries in the evening. Our servers Laura and Aretha have been employed there 18 and 25 years respectively. They shared that it is a great place to work. That says a... More

For the third year in a row we had Thanksgiving Dinner at Traditions at The Williamsburg Lodge. Of our 3 years this was the best. The set up was in the Virginia Room where they had mirror image tables for everything from soup to desserts. Last year there was no soup but this year they offered a delicious butternut squash...
