Great Burgers, Ribs, Veggie Lasagna

We eat here quite often. This is slightly off the beaten path in Old Town Alexandria in a very nice older building. Parking is a bit difficult but there is on street parking & a parking garage under the City's Municipal building. The vegetable lasagna is very good. Good sauce with roasted... read more

Stop #2 on our food tour. They surprised us with two courses here. I'm still not a fan of fried green tomatoes, but now my husband is. The ribs & coleslaw was very good. Nice atmosphere & family friendly.

We had dinner at Overwood Saturday evening, June 13th. Overwood exceeded our expectations in nearly every way. The atmosphere was pleasant, we asked for and got a quiet corner to visit with friends. Our waiter was good and knowledgeable of the specials and answered our questions. We all selected different menu items and we were all very pleased with our... More

We stumbled upon this place while walking in Alexandria. We were lured in by the happy hour sign on the street. Overall, it was a good experience. The happy hour prices were very reasonable and the appetizer menu had some good options. We particularly enjoyed the wings and sliders. Our server was a bit cold initially, making a point that...

Had lunch there yesterday. Had French dip. Very large sandwich and French fries. Ended up with food baby. Waiter was nice. Wife got a pizza. Not the best but good.

Looking around for Alexandria restaurants previous to my trip to the DC Metro area, I came across Overwood. My initial response to the menu was that everything sounded great! But it was the Monday Night special that really stood out to me! So I made a reservation for that Monday evening I was going to be in town with my... More

Our group recently enjoyed a dinner here, despite some initial bumps in the road. Our host had some issues with the restaurant because our menu wasn't what had been faxed & approved earlier and the room where our group was scheduled to dine had been given to another group. Once those issues were resolved, it took a long time for... More

Quiet and off the beaten path, this restaurant had something for everyone in the group. A couple of blocks north of busy King street, this was the perfect spot for mixing work with pleasure. The scallops were excellent, the Cajun inventive, and the steak a great value. Other reviews commented on poor service but that wasn't the case for us... More

I had the toasted ravioli, which was tasty, but the ribs (which they claim to be famous for) were atrocious! The sauce was good, but the ribs were so charred that there was very little edible meat that wasn't charcoal. Service was attentive, but not enough so that a server checked on the quality of my food in time to... More

Very unfriendly atmosphere and servers. Had to ask 3 times for bread. Salad and dessert were good, but I've never heard of grilled meatloaf. Evidently, they have. The salmon was about an inch wide and was very dry. The grilled meatloaf was a large serving, but not very tasty. Tables were a little dated and not comfortable. It was very... More
