Visited out of tourist season, so it was easy to grab a bite here without a wait. Food was just OK. Beer selection was pretty large with a decent amount of the more commonly available regional offerings, nothing out of the ordinary. Good vibe, as most others were just students hanging out. Decent option.

Among the three/four best beer bars in the Va Bech to Williamsburg alley. This original location can be kind of a noisy, with a crowded college bar atmosphere at certain times, or can be a quiet little neighborhood pub on early afternoons. Decent tap selection (changing fairly frequently and always featuring something local), and the food is solid. PS, yes park on the street if you can.
Very cool place in Colonial Williamsburg about ten feet from William & Maryís campus. This place has a sort of "mug club" where you get massive pours of the the beers on tap for a discount. Pretty much everything on tap is craft with a focus on American craft and a few random English/Scottish/Welsh beers. Bottle list is large and I found about 2-3 beers I had never heard of before. Atmosphere is great- a huge college bar and a ton of fun. Canít remember what night I went but it was either Friday or Saturday and it was packed to gills and a complete riot. Very cool vibe and cool people. Excellent all around.
This unpretentious pub and restaurant offered plenty of quality beer on tap when I visited around New Yearís (SN Celebration, Lagunitas IPA, Arrogant Bastard, Victory Festbier, DFH 60-Minute IPA, 3 beers from Legend, 2 from Dominion, St.George IPA, Cottonwood Frostbite, etc.) and had a very enticing bottle list too (beers from Brooklyn, Clipper City, Flying Dog, Williamsburg Aleworks, Bluegrass, North Coast, Thirsty Dog, Bellís, Green Flash, Humboldt, etc.). The food we had (smoked turkey sandwich and ahi tuna sandwich) was decent but forgettable average American pub food. It was quite inexpensive though, so you canít really complain. I wouldnít make a detour to come here, but if you are in Williamsburg visiting the historic area, Iím pretty sure you canít find a better craft beer selection than this within walking distance.
Iím extremely biased when it comes to rating this place mainly because I spent four wonderful college years living in this bar. This place is absolutely great, especially if you go during off-peak hours to avoid the crowds and noise (NEVER GO ON A SUNDAY NIGHT). Tuesdays are typically the best days to go if you are a fan of VA beers because all pitchers of draft VA beers are just 5 bucks! There burgers are good and their entrees are great. Service quality fluctuates based on extremely high turnover rate. This is a MUST for anyone traveling through Williamsburg

My wife and I ate at the Green Leafe last June during our summer vacation. The food was great. The ambiance was very nice, too. There was a mixture of college kids, businessmen wearing suits trying to nab a young chick, and families. The Green Leafe has tons of local beers, and you can sample any of them. It was here that I discovered Tupperís, Mobjack, Dominion, Sweet Water, Williamsburg, and St. George beers. Iíd say I had one of the best samplers in history, and I canít wait to get back there this June and try some more. This is a great place.
Enjoyed a few brews here I wasnít familiar with. Medium-sized but well rounded draft list, bigger bottle selection. Disappointed that they didnít have anything on cask.
The facilities are a little run down. Smelled a little funky like stale spilled alcohol and bad air flow. Service was fine- though the server we got was not well-versed in the beer selection- I think she was the hostess filling in for another server. Food was just ok- went for the fish and chips and the fish was overdone and the chips a little mushy. They were also out of one of the only vegetarian (no meat or fish) things on the menu, leaving my cousin to a (smallish) salad. Pricing was average.
I can see this being a good place to hang out and grab a good brew, and, if you happen to be hungry, some grub. Or just hang and have a brew and get your dinner somewhere else.
between cask,taps, and bottles they have a real good selection.the food is real good and the place is hopping with a nice mix of older and young folks that i haveínt seen in a long time. friendly knowledgeable staff -and for that matter clientele this is a real nice place.
