Very nice but not pretentious. Steak and crab cake was very good. Decent beer and wine selection. Service was quite good. A little pricey, but not unexpected for the area. Overall we were happy with our visit - and spent some time walking "old town" Alexandria after dinner.

Stopped by Overwood with the family. Used their online reservation system without A hitch. Only 1 block off the water with great parking at Thompsons Alley and Union. Quiet atmosphere great for having a conversation without yelling at each other. Had the smoked salmon and it was great. No wifi available it seems. The place was mostly filed with locals... More

Our party of four enjoyed the ravioli appetizer. While the ladies were dining on the Jambalaya plate and Skinny Chicken plate, we men devoured the prime rib special. 16oz of properly done beef as requested. During the whole meal, our servers took good care of us and we all smiles. This place was recommended my one of the locals in... More

Ambience: Relaxing restaurant that wasn't loud. It seemed to be a slower night (Monday). Food: Solid food. Although the $10.95 special steak dinner was a little fatty. Next time I'll try their New York Strip. The Sweet Potato cheese cake was awesome and super rich. Service: Excellent. Wait staff was very responsive and personable. Definite rare experience in DC.

The ribs were excellent! Great service and food. Quiet atmosphere off the beaten path of King St. I ate here with my wife and she enjoyed her chicken salad as well.

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 vegetables & ricotta cheese filling in between pasta.... 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.
