The Amber Ox Public House is our favorite restaurant in Williamsburg. It is fittingly located in the heart of Colonial Williamsburg. The Amber Ox puts modern twists on traditional American dishes. From pork, shrimp & grits to pimento cheese, fried chicken, or ribs. One of our favorites is the maple-glazed pepper bacon. Not only is the food phenomenal, but the Amber Ox has their own selection of craft beers ranging from pale-ales to stouts.
