During my trip to Williamsburg, VA, I stayed in the Williamsburg Lodge which I absolutely adored. The hotel was recently redone and maintains a ‘Colonial Chic’ vibe that I was really digging. The room we stayed in was a suite with a beautiful king sized bed and the adjacent room was just as nice. It was the perfect place to relax after a long day of wandering around Colonial Williamsburg.
We were also surprised with a lovely charcuterie platter and a bottle of champagne as a gift from the hotel which we throughly enjoyed.
The best part about staying in a hotel is checking out the restaurant. So of course we grabbed dinner downstairs at Sweet Tea & Barley.
I kicked off the meal with one of my favorite drinks, a Moscow Mule. It was a well executed classic cocktail. I was glad to enjoy it while washing down my meal.
After snacking on all of the charcuterie in the hotel room before dinner, my mom and I opted to skip all of those yummy sounding appetizers. But those nachos sounded so tasty, had we headed back to Sweet Tea & Barley for another meal I’m certain we would have ordered them.
I love a good burger, so of course I ordered the Lodge Burger. An all beef patty topped with bacon, LTO, pickles, and mayo sounded more than perfect to me and it was so good. It was a typical tavern burger but totally hit the spot.
My mom ordered the Turkey Club and it was awesome. This massive sandwich had sliced turkey, bacon, cheddar, LTO, and mayo and it was another winner. Turkey sandwiches are one of my favorite things and this was one of the best I’ve had recently.
