For a newly opened brewery, the beer is surprisingly good - what you'd expect from a mature brewery. The food is more than a bonus, it's a good reason to visit even if you don't like beer. In addition to being a brewery, Amber Ox...More

We discovered after a long day at Colonial Williamsburg that we should probably put more though in to where we might have dinner. Colonial Williamsburg was a bit crowded and it seemed that all the restaurants were full. We had eyed Amber Ox as we...More

The Amber Ox team has a passion for great beer, an obsession with delicious local food, and an unwavering dedication to providing unforgettable customer experiences. In our on site brewery, Precarious Beer Project, we produce our own meticulously crafted beers inspired by the seasons. As a brewpub, we also serve some of our regions best craft beers that compliment in our own in house brewing efforts. And, yes, we’re a restaurant, but we’re not your average restaurant either. Here, you’ll discover a mix of eclectic, elevated and unexpected dishes — many of which pay ode to classic Southern fare. But with a contemporary twist. We place a spotlight on crafting fresh seasonal dishes that feature the best regionally sourced produce and ingredients available. Put simply, the inspired food on our menu is prepared with finesse but no pretense.
