William Jeffrey's is our neighborhood spot. We take guests there for brunch, go there to watch a football game that isn't televised and celebrate Mardi Gras there! We've never had a negative experience and the food is consistently good. When we visited recently, the manager was so accommodating to find us a way to watch two games at the same... More

I live about 1/2 mile up the street so I come here about one a month for dinner, drinks, brunch, lunch, etc. The brunch is great with a make your own Bloody bar and waffle station. Drinks are great, friendly staff and good service. Live music Thursday - Saturday typically. Normal Arlington prices for both food and drinks. Love this... More

I had a business lunch here this month. Looking from the outside, I thought "ok - burger joint, maybe get a salad - hard to screw that up". But i was delighted to eat a good meal. I actually opted for a wrap. Verdict - very good! Other pluses - a great server who had to handle a table of... More

The steak was tender and the caramelized onions were a welcome surprise. The drinks were... More

They often throw a twist in their meals that you might hesitate to trust in a bar but they devise flavor combinations and execute with the skill of a fairly high-end restaurant.

Very comfortable atmosphere day/evening, summer/winter. You can always catch "the game" on one of their flatscreen tvs at the bar, a hightop table or a booth. Staff is friendly, food is good and there is live music often on the weekends. Perfect to bring friends and even family.

I love the new and improved Columbia Pike area. This was my first visit to William Jeffreys and I liked it. I made a reservation on their EASY reservation system just in case, but didn't need it on a Thursday night at 6:30. Although it's a bit noisy in this very airy, open space with a huge bar in the...

This is one of four restaurants owned by the same partnership. I lived near two other of their restaurants and a frequent visitor. I became friends with the ABC managers. When William Jeffreys opened some of the help moved from the other places and I went to see my friends and have a beer on occasion. I moved closer to... More

This was my first visit. There were approx. 12 of us getting together. Small menu. I was told that they didn't have any lobster for my first choice of lobster sliders so I opted for a hamburger. It was cooked just as I ordered and was very tasty. I really enjoyed my Bellini. Everyone was happy with their meals. Our... More

William & Jeffreys Tavern offers pretty good food but it is a little overpriced compared to some of the other restaurants in the area. They also have plenty of TVs broadcasting sports games. Bar tenders and waitresses are definitely average at best in terms of service though.
