As many of you know, I live in the tourism town of Williamsburg, VA. For this visit, we headed about a half hour down the Colonial Parkway to Water Street in Yorktown, VA.  Water Street Grille sits right on Yorktown Beach and has one of the best views of the York River that you can find.

We started by perusing their extensive daily Craft Beer Menu and decided to try glasses of Inkjet Cider from Sly Clyde Ciderworks in Hampton, VA.  The cider has flavors of raspberry, blackberry, and mint and was outstanding. We might have had more than one before the meal was over…

The menu has a wide variety of appetizers, salads, entrees, mac and cheese, and wood fired pizzas, but we both decided on sandwiches for this visit. Stephan chose the Monster Club Sandwich, stuffed with turkey, ham, smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, and avocado ranch dressing. It was HUGE and came with perfectly crispy french fries and a pickle spear.

I chose the Off the Hook Haddock Sandwich, which was a battered and fried haddock filet, topped with lettuce and tomato, and served with homemade tartar sauce on the side. It also came with those same crispy, delicious fries and a pickle spear. Did I mention that the club sandwich was huge? The haddock sandwich made the club look petite. The fish filet was so long, it stuck out both ends of the not-exactly-tiny roll. This is definitely a sandwich to order when you’re ravenous. Otherwise, expect to be carrying a takeout box with you when you leave. Oh–and it’s moist, and flaky, and exactly what you’re looking for in a fried fish sandwich.

Our friend Katie was also with us for this visit and tried one of the wood-fired pizzas. Definitely have to give one of those a try on the next visit!

By the time we finished those huge sandwiches, we were stuffed, so decided to skip dessert. Water Street Grille has several options to choose from, but there’s also a Ben and Jerry’s right across the street, if you’re so inclined.

So the next time you’re visiting the Historic Triangle, definitely give Water Street Grille a try–you won’t regret it! Great food, awesome drinks, beautiful views, and good service–what more could you want?
