Overall, the atmosphere was great the waitress on the other hand not so much. I came in with a group of friends we initially decided we were going to start off with some waters and dinner as we waited for the rest of the group to arrive. This older woman who said her name was Linda was our waitress. When... More

It's surprising to hear about your visit with us, Kiley. You should always have helpful and friendly service, and Linda is usually more than happy to assist our guests. You can understand that everyone has a bad night, and I can only assume this was the case with her, but I plan to follow up with your comments here so... More

We were in town for a long weekend in DC when we found Rock It Grill. It looks like a small road house bar and grill not to far from the hotel. We decided to give it a try. We were impressed by the service. Our waitress was very attentive but not pushy. We all had sandwiches. My wife had... More

This place is seriously so much fun. I came here this this past Saturday with a few friends, I loved that the waitress had taken the time to separate our checks in the beginning with separate cards, this has been a big issue of mine in other bars where they get everything mixed up. She also, delt with me not... More

My son and I dropped in here for Sunday brunch after arriving in Alexandria for a conference. It was such a lucky find. Great crabcakes. Wonderful pancakes. You want it, they have it, and it's delicious. It felt warm and neighborly and the service was excellent. Well worth a try.

This is really a neighborhood restaurant. It is low key, some might call it a dive, but it is really too clean for that. However, prices are great, and they have wonderful specials and happy hour. Most important, every meal we have had there is actually really really good. They have terrific fajitas and Lebanese pita (with garlic sauce). Also,... More

There specialty is chili, but I fear eating chili on vacation (who knows what kind of effect it may have on you, right?). So I played it safe and went with a burger and fries. The service was great, and the food and drinks came out quick. Place was a little dark inside, but it has some atmosphere.

This place is always packed because there is simply no limit to what whiskey tango's will do to go get drunk and sing karaoke. The drinks are colossolly overpriced, the service is average to terrible depending how busy it is, the managers are generally rude, and there are a lot of really drunk, borderline abusive people that hang out near...

It’s disappointing to hear that we didn't impress you during your past visits, Kyle. As you can imagine, it's most concerning to hear that you haven't had top notch service and found our managers rude. This is certainly the last impression we want you to have of us, but I see that it's been a while since you posted your... More
