Over 3 Generations - Since 1956 the family owned and operated Jefferson Restaurant has been serving mouth watering specialties such as our very own Virginia Peanut Soup, steaks, seafood, southern favorites, and Italian dishes served in an English Country setting. The Jefferson Restaurant has been serving Williamsburg Diners and the local surround community since 1956. There is a full menu of delicious reasons why the Jefferson Restaurant is so highly recommended. Reservations recommended for larger groups. Harriet Baganakis Petrell opened The Jefferson in 1956. Over the years her son John, daughter Julie, son-in-law Eddie and grandson Mark have worked there and made it their "second home".
Harriet, Johnny, Julie and Eddie have since passed on, but Mark Wright is still here 7 days a week. in fact, his kids, the Jefferson's fourth generation, are being raised in the restaurant too. It's in the family DNA!
59 years and still going strong!
2012 Virginia Gazette "Best Steakhouse" winner!
The Owner Mark has been in the restaurant business his whole life. It's what he knows, what he does, what he loves.
You can find him at The Jefferson 7 days a week from open 'til close. Ask for him by name - he'd love to say hello!
