Great environment! Fried clams "famous".

Felt they could've given a more generous portion for the sides, maybe two or three slices of brisket instead of just one. I'd also love to see them fill the sauce more then half way. Ordered the 4meat combo with two sides. Out of that I'd go back for the brisket, baby back ribs, and Mac. Also loved the Tidewater sauce.

Excellent BBQ....tried all of the meats with my group and everything exceeding expectations. Special shout out for THE BEST Collard Greens I have ever had.....seasoned to perfection, flavorful, and just a tiny hint of heat.

Old City BBQ was good! The portions are a little small for the cost but the flavor was worth every penny! The brisket was very moist, the chicken was a little dry, the sausage was awesome and so was the Mac and cheese!!! Definitely worth a try but don't expect to fill up unless you want to order for two for yourself (don't be ashame ... read more

I just want to say, I’ve been to the restaurant many times before, and the food still hasn’t stopped surprising me. I try new things left and right and no other barbecue restaurant compares. If anyone would ask me what restaurant to go to I would instantly recommend this one, Old City Barbecue! The service is great and the hostesses ... read more

The menu selection is Southern cuisine and we didn’t expect anything like this in Williamsburg? But the food was incredible! Everything was smoked to perfection and even the collard greens had a unique smoky flavor. The service was outstanding as well. I’ll be back!!

Not the friendliest of servers here, but the arugula salad is my favorite in town by a mile! Love those cheese fries too.

Stopped on the way back home from vacation with family. The whole experience was top notch & the server (Grace) treated our kids like gold.

After a long day at Busch Gardens we took a chance and were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is rustic and comfortable. We had a party of 8 and they were able to fit us in after a 20 min wait, 10 shorter than estimated. Their brisket is the best I've had since leaving Texas, so moist and perfectly seasoned. The pulled pork was ... read more

Like BBQ? Then you need to try this place. Their st. Louis ribs are worth trying with banana pudding at the end. A must need to try!

We came from philly and it was our first time. Let me just say it was the best service I have ever had at a restaurant and the food was amazing. I highly recommend this place!!
chrystal suarez via google.com - Apr 6, 2021
We weren’t too familiar with the area but we definitely knew we wanted BBQ. We googled and the images of their food lured us right in! Pork belly bites are dangerously good. The Mac and Cheese makes you want seconds and thirds. Everyone got an extra side and more to go so we could bring it back home from vacation. The cornbread, ribs ... read more

Heather was our waitress and she was amazing. She was quick and there every-time we needed her. And the food was amazing, the ribs had so much flavor and the Mac and cheese was crazy it was so good. If you want a good person every-time you eat ask of heather is there. Have a good day and we will Be back.

The mac-n-cheese is so good, my daughter wanted to buy all they had and take home with us. Ribs, brisket, pulled pork, Brunswick stew all were very good.

Atmosphere If it was full on spring and there were people in the tables outside it would have been lovely, if you added some string lights on the porch even moreso but the fire pit was very nice especially with the temperature dropping. Just could have been a touch more cozy. Service Service was fine. We were outside so I understand ... read more

The waiter (Heather) was super nice and she was always there even when we thought we didn’t need her. The food was also amazing! The cornbread was perfect and the Mac and cheese was on point. I would definitely eat here again.

We are from Utah and we're in Williamsburg, VA visiting. We saw reviews about this place and we weren't disappointed! Amazing food and drink selection for anybody! You'll find something you love here. Hope was our waitress and she was spectacular. It is a little pricey, but definitely worth it. Fast service and quality food!

Pork belly appetizer is amazing. Brisket sandwich with horseradish was quite good but you dont get that kick from the horseradish is did not shine through. Queso mac and cheese is delicious. Atmosphere was wonderful and clean. Our waitress, Hope did a fantastic job and was very attentive. Would 100% go back again.

Wonderful service, great atmosphere, affordable prices. Has a multitude of BBQ options, not just one style of sauce, served in a variety from sandwich to taco. Good adult beverages with local micro brews.

What a pleasant surprise this place was! The building was charming and had a homey feel to it.

The staff was running on a skeleton crew, so service could be a little slow, but they were friendly and as attentive as they could be. The food was quite good; I got the pork belly Bahn mi, my fiancé got the BBQ spare ribs, and we shared the excellent fried oysters. The variety of homemade pickles in each dish was a nice touch.
