We had a problem getting the waiter back to get us the check. Up to that point, the food and service were great. The others got... More

Away from the historic Old Town area, it serves as a meeting place for business people and others; can be crowded, with significant waits for tables. Food is varied and good, with accommodating service and good suggestions from the waitstaff. Not inexpensive, but worth your while.

This place is located right across the street from Kings Street Metro and is a great place to grab food and drinks. The food is delicious and better than your average bar fare. The service is pretty good. The only con is how crowded this place gets. Come early on game days if you want a place at the bar.

Excellent. Try the shrimp and crab fritters. Burgers were so juicy and succulent. Haven't tasted a burger like that, since I visited Chicago

This restaurant is located directly across from the King Street Metro station so we stopped in after getting off the train. Since it was a nice evening we asked for outdoor seating. Our server was very prompt and attentive. I ordered a steak with potatoes and vegetable. Not the best steak I've ever had but still pretty good. It was... More

I work near JT and go relatively often. I go ... because of the location - not the food. The food is very average and quite overpriced. Drinks are the same as they have a non-existent Happy Hour. The service is spotty. Sometimes it is GREAT but sometimes it is terrible. Honestly, this place is more for tourist than locals.... More

Joe Theismann's may not have that "olde towne" flavor being of a more contemporary setting; however, for great food, great service and a clean atmosphere, you can't beat it. So, if you are looking for a place to "pop in" and have some great food and drinks, this is the place. Oh, and for those who like to keep up... More
