The Carrot Tree Yorktown is located in the historic Cole Digges House which was built in the early to mid 18th-century; it is best known for being Yorktown's oldest home. There is a focus on using fresh, local produce, ensuring dishes are flavorful and of a high quality. The Carrot Tree also serves up great desserts - most notably, the house carrot cake and coconut custard pie - as well as sandwiches, soups, and salads. There is another location, Carrot Tree Kitchens, in Williamsburg on Jamestown Road. Call ahead for hours.
The Carrot Tree is such a wonderful place to dine. Several of my dear friend and I make it a point to have a girls day in Yorktown at least twice a year and The Carrot Tree is our place to eat each time. The atmosphere is quaint and quiet. The food was delicious and the service fast and polite. The carrot cake was EXCELLENT!!!!. I especially enjoyed the brunswick stew. If you are going to Yorktown...definitely go to the Carrot Tree.
My husband and I visited Yorktown the week of 8/16/2010 and ate at the Carrot Tree for lunch. The food was very good and priced well for a tourist destination. The service was good and I loved that it was in an old colonial building. My only suggestion is that the owners fix up the inside to better reflect the history and style of this old building. It would be more charming to have the servers wear era appropriate clothing and maybe music from the colonial period playing softly in the background. Sometimes a little ambiance makes an enjoyable experience outstanding. All in all, we would eat there again.
We actually were there just recently,9/2/10 and unfortunately didn't stay to eat so I cannot comment on the food...However whom I believe was the Manager of the restaurant was a very RUDE gentleman. We were seated and immediately he insisted and taking our bottles of water...We are in a tourist area, it was very hot and humid out and we were walking around Historical Yorktown. As he had my bottle of water in his hand I was trying to rip the label on my bottle to make sure I got the correct bottle back explaining that to him...he sd he'd put them in the cooler so they'd be cold for us when we left.....I didn't really like that...I don't know him...I don't know if I'll really get my bottle of water back or whose bottle I'd get or know the other employees there or who may have access to my bottle of water...that seems it could be some type of health code violation to me.....So I asked the waitress Why he had to take our water .....she explains there have been people who have come in and brought Wendy's in and laid it out on the table in the restaurant....We ordered drinks then discussed the restaurant's policy and decided we didn't like it so we would pay for our beverages and find another restaurant in Yorktown to eat....We left a tip for our drinks...went to the register to pay and the gentleman that had seated us and who had taken our bottles of water was ringing us up...He said was sorry they didn't suit us today and my husband said well your rule is stupid taking our bottles of water..WELL that really set the man off...He became very aggitated and Said Stupid! ...I'm stupid!......Well I'd better make sure I get your change correct because I'm SO STUPID! ...my husband replied Yes make sure you do and can we have our bottles of water back. He said Well wait I'm counting this change and you know I'M SO STUPID!..then he gets us our bottles of water ...I said Well Thank You and have a Nice Day as we were walking out and he replies...I WILL AS SOON AS YOU TWO GET OUT OF TOWN AND GO BACK TO WHERE EVER YOU CAME FROM!....It was actually pretty funny ...We joked about it all day....However VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE....I work for a very successful local restaurant in my state and we have recently branched out into two other states in customer service and we would never react in such a manner to a customer.....Work On Your Customer Service Please...And let your weary travelers keep their own bottles of water with them and only address your rude customers that bring food into your restaurant from other restaurants.
Thank You and Have a Nice Day : )
My wife and I were looking for a place to eat when we visited Yorktown in July of 2009, and we came across the carrot tree. We still talk about how great it was when we talk about our trip. They have great stew and such a nice environment. I recommend the carrot tree to anyone visiting Yorktown or Williamsburg!
My husband and I spent the day in Yorktown for the 4th of July and most restaurants were booked so we decided to go to the Carrot Tree and we were really impressed with the Goulouch plate and the service was excellent, the desserts are to die for because their fresh and most of all when we went the Owner blessed us with a free meal because my husband is active military and was leaving the next day on deployment so we were realy emotional when we were told the dinner was free! I would definently eat here again because the owner has alot of respect for military families and he has excellent people skills with really good food!

Drove up from NC to meet some friends in the area and choose the Carrot Tree because of the reviews -- excellent choice!-- sandwiches and soup were terrific but the very kind waitresses made us feel at home and really made out reunion extra-special. We drove over from Williamsburg the next day too for lunch!
Loved this place! The set-up is in a charming house with wooden floors and rugs. We ate here for dinner - the hummus and veggie appetizer was awesome and meals were great as well (I had crabcake, and my husband had meatloaf which he said was best he ever had. My three yr old had ham and cheese sandwich which came with brownie.) We're definitely goin back, if not just for their KeyLime Pie, superb!
