Groups and Buses
We are excited you are coming to Williamsburg and we hope you will consider Retro’s good eats! as a possible food venue. We are adjacent to the Historic Area and the College of William and Mary, located on the north side of Merchants Square. There are bus drop off/pick up locations nearby, which you will see on the adjacent map.
Below, you will find suggestions for “prix fixe” menus which your groups can use for budgeting purposes.
Giving us advance notice of your arrival will ensure that we have extra help available to speed the process and give you the best service.
The best time to bring in a group for lunch is between 11:00 a.m. and noon, or after 1:30. We are a perfect choice for dinner for groups going on an evening Ghost Tour and with our freshly Frozen Custard and five Sundaes, a great dessert choice any time of day!
As in the past, groups with an advance reservation will receive one $5 credit for a group of 25 or more members, which can be applied to the bill, or to treat their driver, guide, etc.

Groups wishing to use the above options are to give advance notice of how many meals they will be purchasing from each price group, ie.
(16) $8 meals and (27) $10 meals. The total in this example would be $398. There would be a $5 credit for reserving a group of over 25 people. The actual charge would then be $393.00.
When your group arrives, the group leader will be given a colored ticket for each child. The tickets in the above example would be 16 Blue ($8) and 27 red ($10). It is up to the group leader to ensure that each child gets the correct ticket. The child turns in the ticket with his/her order. This way the cashier guarantees the correct number of meals are rung up at the pre-agreed on price. If the add on custard is included, a “custard” ticket will be given out as well. If the add on milkshake is included, a “milkshake” ticket will be given out as well.
Due to the nature of pre-charging, we cannot make variations to these menu items.
Group members will place their order at the counter individually, according to the options in the price group agreed upon in advance. The manager will run the credit card or apply the company check to the bill.
All groups can, of course, still order from the full menu if they wish and pay on site either individually or as a group tab. With many groups, each child comes with a $10 or $20 bill and orders directly from the menu, based on a predetermined dollar limit.
Reservations must be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please don’t hesitate to call if you have particular group food needs we might address.

We can also help with evening meals as we offer dinner and “blue plate specials” .
It is our goal to enhance your group’s Williamsburg experience and to assure that they enjoy a meal at Retro’s that is Fast, Delicious and Affordable!
Retro’s has 70 seats in the dining room and 12 outside. While this may seem limiting to some groups, we have a great deal of experience in turning groups. As there is much to do right outside our door you might consider staging your group into sub-groups. Group members are to line up at the register. We ask that you not take a seat until you have received your food. When you have finished eating, we ask that you vacate your seat so that it can be used by others. There is shopping on the street. If you are loading on to your bus after dining, the bus can pull up on North Boundary Street (around the corner) or on Richmond Road at the designated Tour Bus stop ( about 1.5 blocks from us).
