Need great restaurants for DC to Norfolk trip

Jump to last reply

We (me, my husband, and ederly parents) will be doing a trip next week starting in DC and traveling through Richmond and on to Norfolk with stops in Fredericksburg, Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown, and Newport News. Would love suggestions for lunch and dinner restaurants where the food is great, but not overly expensive. Our tastes run the gamut from crab shacks to foodie spots and anything in-between. We especially love to take in the local fare to get a feel of the area culture. Some favorite ethnic foods are Italian, Mexican, and Greek, but love good old American classics too.
When we were in the DC area a few years ago, we ate at Canlter's Riverside Inn near Annapolis where we ate on the back deck at the brown paper covered picnic tables and LOVED it. We also ate at Tim's Rivershore Restaurant and Crabhouse near Dumfires. Loved it too. For Mexican, we ate at Tacqueria Poblano in Alexandria and enjoyed it as well. One of the Italian restaurants we tried was Geranio in Old Towne Alexandria. A nice experience, but maybe a little over-priced for the quality of the meal. Thought these restaurants (if you are familiar with them) would provide some idea of what we enjoy.

Any suggestions or help you can offer would be most welcome!!!
