Service was excellent. They accommodated us and our allergies and needs perfectly. The food was very good and what we expected. The toasted marshmallow ice cream was REALLY good.

We've been dining here for several years and each time we go - it's more wonderful than the last. The food and service are second to none in Williamsburg. With Lynn as a warm and welcoming presence, the combination of these elements work in perfect harmony - every single time!

Started with fried oysters, was not overly impressed with those. For entrees we had rock fish and the tenderloin, both were very good. The wine and the service were great.

I have been lucky to have eaten at the Fat Canary several times and I am always impressed with the depth of flavors each dish carries. I often use the term "treasure trove" of ingredients as I eat, discovering new things with each fork. So many times in a restaurant the dish has an interesting flavor but after a few... More

This is a truly fabulous experience, the food, the service and Lynn is spectacular! If you can only eat at one place during your visit to Williamsburg make it the Fat Canary!!!

We made reservations and ate dinner here. Our server, Paula, was delightful! She was very knowledgeable and kind. The fricasee rabbit was absolutely delicious and the macadamia nut pie was a must have!
