A short walk from our hotel. Fortunately we went early for lunch as it was Sunday and a big game day. The food was very good. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff.

Melissa is my server, great lady. She definitely took care of me. Beers during happy hour and filet mignon was so juicy and tender. Make sure you ask for Melissa, she is very friendly. We had a good time and she made sure I enjoyed my meal. This is a nice place to eat - my bill of filet and... More

After having driven all day, we were ready for a good meal somewhere close by. Our hotel suggested "Theismann's". I was a bit leery about trying it but was pleasantly surprised. First it was literally across the street from our hotel. Upon entering the decor and lighting was very inviting, classy but not the kind of place that makes you... More

In town for a couple days for training. Stopped in for dinner my first day, had the Signature Pork Chop. Outstanding, with mashed potatoes and veggies. Next night, slurped up the happy hour wine for a couple hours, then had the Pork Tenderloin with chipotle glaze. Outstanding! with potato wedges and veggies. Next time I'm in this section of Alexandria,... More

We are always happy to visit this location. Fine dining and white tablecloths -- no. Consistent food and service -- spot-on.

Enjoyed our meal very much. Delicious food (had Louisiana Chicken and Black Pepper Fettuccine) and good portions. Wait was about 15 minutes on Saturday night. Prices were reasonable. Would go back.

This place is opposite the Hilton and across from King St metro station. It's a sports bar with lots of screens, so is noisy on Saturday nights when the games are on. However the further you get from the bar the quieter it is and there are fewer screens. There is a full service menu (not breakfast) and te food... More

TVs are all over and the crowd gets into the sports events. The food is tasty, service is good and the location is very convenient to metro, buses and taxis. This has been our go-to place for a quick get together for drinks.

Although I'm not a sports bar fan, this was a worthwhile visit. Excellent location just steps from the Old Town Metro station, in a beautiful part of town, and near the Expressway Suites conference center. Friendly wait staff, readily available seating at noon, comfortable surroundings (not loud like a lot of sports bars). The lobster and shrimp bisque was *excellent,*... More
