We waited 15+ minutes without anyone coming to our table. Once she did, she informed us she was not our server; simply helping out "the other guy". We weren't given any water while we waited what would have been an eternity for the drinks we ordered while she rushed around trying to accommodate the already waiting tables. We wound up... More

Great menu and great atmosphere. As a vegetarian, I was happy to see the extent of food they offered. The veggie platter was excellent and plentiful. Everything our party ate was very good. Service was friendly and welcoming.

The last time wee ate here, we ate dinner. so that might explain a bit of the change in the ambiance. Our waiter was new and didn't know some of the details about the menu. The table we were at sat 5 people, but it was a bit tight. I would have preferred that the glasses and plates be removed... More

This is a cute little tavern off the main drag. They have a large selection of beers and drinks. The menu has a wide variety of items. The food was average. It was fun looking around at the decor. Service was a little slow but we weren't in a hurry.

We were visiting family in the area, and had a party of 7, including a 5-week old infant. We had a cozy lunch, everyone had what he wanted, and the atmosphere was pleasant and inviting. We had a friendly, efficient server, and were not hurried, even though the restaurant was doing a brisk business on what was probably the first... More

I went there for brunch on a Sunday, and may I say that the stuffed French Toast is killer. What came to my plate was an enormous plate full of gigantic food (which is I guess how a regular plate would look if you were a hobbit). The caramelized apples were spectacular, and the outside was that perfect slightly crunchy... More

When I booked our trip to Alexandria I didn't realize this restaurant existed until I did some searching. It's just off the main drag of King Street, a super easy walk from the City Hall & fountain. Our hotel shuttle (Hampton Inn Alexandria) dropped us right off in front of City Hall and we walked the tree lined blocks to... More

Reminiscent of a "middle earth" pub, you can enjoy the atmosphere and friendly service even if you're not a Lord of the Rings fan. Our server brought out warm raisin bread as we sat down, and by the time we wolfed that down we weren't hungry for lunch any more! But we ordered and took most of it with us...too... More

Whether you are into the Lord of the Rings trilogy or not, this is a good place for dinner. The space is an old tavern and is a little tight. But the portions are generous and the taste is wonderful. our server was more than helpful and attentive. A short walk from the main drag of King Street lets you... More

Really good pizza! (Had the Shire). Cute little restaurant in Old Town Alexandria, just a few blocks from King Street. Very quick service, would definitely go to again!
