We don't usually eat out for breakfast while on vacation but at the high recommendation of friends and reading the reviews, decided to try Old Chickahominy House. The decor was not charming, we were in a tiny cramped room, with no atmosphere. The waitress was...More

Breakfast at the Chickahominy House is always great. Food is top notch, atmosphere is just want you'd expect in Williamsburg, VA and the service is great. I'm a big fan of the Plantation Breakfast, but everything is great.

$10.95 gets you iced tea, four country ham biscuits to die for, a nice fruit salad, a cup of delicious Brunswick stew and your choice of five homemade pie slices. Make the cup a bowl for $1 more. Great food!

We have gone to old chickahominy for decades and are never disappointed. Whatever we order is consistantly delicious. They are even nice enough to make us vegetarian stew and it is very tasty. The biscuits are the only biscuits we eat because they are special....More

Looks like you got two good sets of directions. There is also parking on the side street. It is a busy place and only open until about 3 p.m. so don't go late.
