This is where it all started – on the banks of the Rappahannock River overlooking where we grow our oysters. We like to call Merroir a “tasting room,” just so people know to expect something different. Everything is either served raw or cooked on an outdoor grill, small-plate-style, and beautifully paired with craft brews and world-famous wines. Each menu item is singularly-focused, seasonal, and ever-changing, so there’s always a surprise in store.

Sightseeing
Eighty-eight 18th-century structures crowd historic Colonial Williamsburg's 301 acres, including the Governor's Palace, where Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson worked; Bassett Hall, the former home of John D. Rockefeller Jr; and the King's Arms Tavern, where Revolutionary elites dined. Great Hopes Plantation, a living history reproduction of a southern tobacco farm, features dramatic and interactive presentations on the African American slave experience. Themed walking tours and special programs include "Historic Trades," a look into 20 types of 18th-century trades, and "Revolutionary City," which explores life in Williamsburg during the American Revolution. Several advance pass options are available for purchase online.

Like Williamsburg, Jamestown offers a pretty clear choice for historical significance. Not only was it the site of the first permanent English colony in the United States, it is also an archaeological treasure trove. So much of what we know about our earliest history, both Native American and European, comes from the riches uncovered in Jamestown. With meticulous re-creations of life in Virginia's earliest settlement, Jamestown brings history to life every day.

Few places in Virginia offer the diversity of history that you'll find in Fredericksburg. Not only was it where George Washington spent large parts of his boyhood, it is rich in Native American history, Revolutionary War history, Civil War history (including 5 major battle sites), African American history and more. Visit the Fredericksburg Museum and Cultural Center, take trolley tours, see the James Monroe Museum and stop by Hugh Mercer’s pre-Revolutionary War Apothecary Shop - just to name a few.

Today, Richmond is the capital of Virginia and is dense with history, politics and tradition. But Richmond also provides a deeper look at Virginia history as a central site of many key events that shaped the nation. Richmond offers colonial history, Civil War history, African American history and the evolution of arts and culture in Virginia. Visit the capitol building, see the church where Patrick Henry' gave his most famous speech, explore the Museum of the Confederacy, visit the Edgar Allen Poe House and Museum or simply stroll the sidewalks of Monument Avenue and see the stately homes and statues that made this the only United State's avenue to be named a National Historic Landmark.

This quaint little island off of the Eastern Shore of Virginia is like the land that time forgot. While the Tidewater accent found on the Eastern Shore of Viriginia is unique, Tangerians have kept it truly old school with their distinct, post-Shakespearean English similar to what original settlers would have spoken. The accent has deteriorated somewhat with TV and technology, but true Tangerians can still be found speaking the “old tongue” on this tiny island 12 miles off the Virginia coast. Inhabited mostly by commercial fishermen, the island can only be reached by boat or small aircraft and retains much of its original charm and history.

Food scene
Fresh, quality foods all made from scratch. From homemade buns and subs, to in-house roasted coffees and peanuts, all of which are prepared daily and made to order. Offering a variety of pit smoked meats, specialty sandwiches, and sides there are hearty options for almost everyone. We use beef tallow to ensure the best “fry” possible so alternatives are limited to simple green salads in three different sizes for vegetarians.
