Country Ham between Richmond and Williamsburg Tue, 10/21/03 1:14 PM (permalink)
Next month I have a wedding to attend back on Long Island. Since my friend decided to screw up my vacation plans and planned his wedding the Sunday before Thanksgiving, I'm gonna have a few days to kill before heading up to Albany NY for Thanksgiving and decided to visit Williamsburg VA for a couple of days however I will be staying in Richmond. Anyone know of any good southern style restaurants between Richmond and Williamsburg that serve up a good ol' fashioned plate of country ham with red eye gravy for dinner?

Oh Come on!. I'm sure there is someone out there who can make a suggestion

    The Virginia Diner in Wakefield Va. Great Counrty Ham plates and Fried Chicken too!! On Rte. 460 between Petersburg and the Nofolk area. Also, the Surry House in Surry VA. Not too far from the above loactions.

      I was always too busy looking for peanut soup to consider much else in the Williamsburg area. WILLIAMSBURG IS A GREAT PLACE TO SPEND A COUPLE OF DAYS. Christmas celebrated the "Colonial Williamsburg" way is especially beautiful.

        Yeah, the Surry House is probably the best bet for that territory. And it's convenient to Williamsburg, thanks to the free ferry that crosses from Jamestown to Scotland. You might also stumble across something in the Smithfield area. In Williamsburg, head to the Old Chickahominy House for ham biscuits and buttermilk pie.

          Thanks all!

          I decided I will go to the Surry HOuse after reviewing their web site. I went to the Old Chickahominy House about 5 years ago unfortunately I didn't have time to check out Old Williamsburg that time I am going to go to Pierce's Pit BBQ for lunch this time around.
