Sunday brunch at the bar

My husband and I go there pretty often for Brunch. We always sit at the bar. Although it is a little small, there are TVs for games and a few regulars who we get a kick out of watching. I am a vegetarian and my husband really likes "boy-food." This place works great for both of us. Sometimes I... read more

Went with friend to enjoy an evening before theater in Alexandria. Restaurant has excellent menu with wide variety of choices including fish. Wine menu was good. But the service was ridiculously disorganized and five waiters were non responsive. We requested our bill four times and when it was brought the waiter disappeared. After 20 mins I waived my arm in... More

Went for supper during the last Saturday night of Alexandria Restaurant Week (January 31, 2015). The joint was jammed. Our orders were taken promptly; unfortunately, things went downhill from there. It took f-o-r-e-v-e-r- to get our food, even for bread before appetizers. Our waiter was apologetic and explained it was extremely busy due to Restaurant Week and our appetizers were... More

We love this place and have been many times. The ribs are awesome and well all of the meats are great here. We went for restaurant week with another couple and really enjoyed our meals and at $35 a couple for restaurant week (not normal pricing) it was a great deal. I also enjoy their roasted brussel sprouts and pretty... More

The restaurant is easy to get to and it's only a short walk from the main drag of Old Town. Our server was very friendly and the menu has a lot of good options. It's reasonably priced for what you get and when comparing it to some of the more high end places in town. The dining room feels almost... More

We used to frequent Overwood, so I stopped back in for brunch during a visit. And while it was still very good, it didn't quite live up to my expectations and memory. The cheddar and bacon burger was good but not quite as smooth as I remembered - I ordered it medium, and it was a little too raw while... More

This is a pleasant neighborhood restaurant in tony Old Towne, Alexandria. The staff was friendly and tried to please - I should have let them. I had the "pan fried flounder" and it was overcooked, dry, and tasteless. Others enjoyed their salads, and the wine and bar list are great. Give it a try - but you might avoid the... More

This "off the main track" must be a local favorite because of its quality food, good value, and limited crowds. Service was fast and attentive. Food was hot and tasty. What more can you ask for?

Tucked away in the historic streets of Old Town Alexandria is one of my favorite restaurants. You just need to follow your nose and the smell of a wood burning fire on a fall day to find this place. This is my "Go To" spot for nicer casual dinning. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. A+ every time I go.
