The place to go in town for good beer, especially Virginia beers. Nice, laid back atmosphere (but bear in mind that the college directly across the street was on break). Service was attentive but not obtrusive. Diverse, friendly clientel. Centrally located (near the historic area). Did not eat here but wish we had (the steakhouse we chose left a lot to be desired). Would definitely go back if in the area again. Passed a second location while headed towards Jamestown, but didnít have a chance to stop. Does anyone know it the selection is as good?

Went there on Vacation back in October í06 and was highly delighted. Yes, parking sucks. Other than that, the Nachos are Ultimate and the Panini bread the sandwiches are served on is excellent. They offered 4 Belgian brews on tap and I noticed they have a weekly keg tapping of a different brew. Very nice selection of bottled brews, too. Great service to boot. I canít wait to go back.

my hometown bar. i donít go anywhere else to drink. so the parking is bad... if you live here you accept it and move on. if you happend to stop by on a sunday night youíll be in for a treat. Mug night, where the slogan reads... good beer, good food, good people, bad parking.

I canít stand this place. I was so excited to stop by this place on my vacation. There was ants crawling on the bar and the parking is terrible. I had two beers there and I was out. The bartender was decent and very nice to let me and my dad sample a couple of beers too. But the place was small, hot and again the parking sucks. How can this place be voted top 10 places in USA Today?

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.

The best old style pub Iíve been to. And the college environment makes the social interaction top - notch. A must visit. Wear a tie if you like, or your favorite beer shirt... youíll fit in fine.

Just got back from a wedding in Billyburg and stayed at the Hospitality House right next door to the Green Leafe ... so, naturally, we were there every night. That, and there are only a few bars in that area. Anyway, atmosphere was decent, but the acoustics were HORRIBLE. Late at night, when the place gets busy, saying itís loud in there would be a major understatement. You literally have to scream at the person next to you for them to hear anything. Beer selection was OK ... albeit great for that town. Bartenders were pretty attentive and friendly, even when it was busy. School has been out, but it was mostly college-aged kids in there (although, I was there from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. every night, so that mightíve had something to do with it). Nothing really exotic, but they had some pretty good beers on tap.

Hey this place wasnít too shabby. Their ale selection wasnít mind boggling, but it was extremely adequate. I especially liked the focus on VA beers (Tuppers, Dominion, Legend). Even better, I was their for Mon (selected micros for $2) and Tues (all VA 16 oz drafts for $1 till 9pm). Other than their wanting to serve over-chilled ale in frozen glasses this place was darn good.

Went here the night after Thanksgiving. Met up with chris_o here. Upon scanning the menu, I had everything listed with the exception of a few beers which I had no desire to drink, so I had a Hop Wallop on draft, Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale on draft, Williamsburg Pale on cask, and Storm King. We also dabbled in their single malt scotch list with Aberlour and Laphroig 10 year oldís. Both were outstanding. This place gets really loud and busy on weekends because of itís proximity to W&M, but if you get there early enough to get a seat, you will be OK. Service was great as was the food. Hard to believe itís been so long since I have been there. Easily the best place in Williamsburg. Will be going back soon!

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.
