However you choose to spend your time in Williamsburg, you’re bound to work up an appetite. Food For Thought is an ideal place to fill that need. We make a point out of keeping our atmosphere clean and colorful, with soft, subtle background music to allow easy conversation. The décor features biographical pictures of inventors, scientists, and social leaders while the walls display thought provoking quotes used to set the tone for a positive and enjoyable dining experience. Several varieties of discussion cards are found upon the tables and help to spur thought charged conversation.
Food For Thought’s menu is as diverse as the great thinkers themselves. Our diner’s choices vary from classic American dishes such a Fork Tender Pot Roast, Grandma’s Meatloaf, and Fall Off the Bone Ribs, to more ethnic favorites like our Pad Thai, Shrimp and Grits, Jamaican Jerk Chicken, and even to healthier vegetarian specialties like our Ultimate Vegetarian, Portabella Stack, and Baked Eggplant Parmesan. Nightly, we run seafood specials like Hickory Salmon or Blackened Tuna in addition to our much ballyhooed Light and Heavy Crab Cakes. Our house steaks are an 8 oz sirloin or a 12 oz NY Strip entrée called “Cut of Your Choice” which can be topped with our Merlot Butter or homemade Roasted Garlic Mushroom Sauce. We also provide a gluten-free menu, a kid’s menu with healthy options, and our “Magic 55″ senior’s menu to serve the retirement community of Williamsburg locals.
We were proudly the first non-smoking restaurant in Williamsburg and have a wonderful bar area serving draft microbrews from Williamsburg Alewerks and Dogfishhead; along with other seasonal drafts. We offer a diverse selection of red and white wines that you do not find on a lot of menus. If more than one type of beer or wine stand out to you, feel free to try one of our beer or wine flights to get a sampling of our selections.
Come Visit Us!
We are located at 1647 Richmond Road, about two miles west of Colonial Williamsburg and conveniently on the way to The Prime Outlets. Though Food for Thought sits amid a sea of chain restaurants, the quality and freshness of the food and the caring service of our staff differentiates us from the everyday norm.
