    • Handling the Heat: Animal Safety & High Temperatures
      The heat index soared this weekend, and that naturally raises questions about safety—for both our costumed interpreters and animals. Besides plenty of water, breaks, and shade, Coach & Livestock utilizes a heat index policy for working animals.  Cattle—like dogs—cannot sweat, so they are removed from work when the heat index reaches 95°.  Horses can swea […]
    • THE WORD ON DOG STREET: REVERSING ATTENDANCE TRENDS
      The word on DoG Street is that the program changes at Colonial Williamsburg over the past few years have led to a decline in attendance. In fact, just the opposite is true.

New Waterfront Restaurant To Open @ Kingsmill June 2012

James Landing Grille

imageConstruction is underway on the new two story restaurant at the Marina in Kingsmill Resort!

Soon to be open year-round, James Landing Grille will be a scenic spot where family and friends gather to enjoy fresh, locally-sourced cuisine, while enjoying the beautiful sunsets over the James River.

All foundation work and floors are complete and walls are now being erected. The new restaurant will feature an indoor/outdoor bar, indoor dining on two levels and a great new menu! Of course the fabulous deck seating and entertainment will also return along with the spectacular view!

In addition to the restaurant, the new ship store is also coming together. The new store, located adjacent to the restaurant, will have showers and restrooms for Kingsmill boaters and beach goers. The store will also provide necessities for a day on the river or Wareham’s pond. With the opening of the store in April, jet-ski and pontoon boat rentals will also be back this year, operated from this new facility.

This will be the only riverfront dining experience in  Williamsburg and a highlight of any visit to Kingsmill Resort.

  Planned opening: June, 2012.

Kingsmill’s multi-million-dollar master plan has been designed to complement the great facilities that already exist at the resort, while capitalizing on its convenient and scenic location along the beautiful James River.

Stay tuned for more updates and see you at the opening of James Landing Grille ! I am thinking this could become my favorite place to dine in the burg.
