Spent a week in Alexandria while visiting DC, and decided to try Gadsby's one night, mainly for the history. We didn't know what to expect as far as food quality, so we were very surprised at how much we enjoyed our meal. The ambience was fantastic. Service was good, not the best, but solid. The food was the star of this visit. Hubby had prime rib and I had the beef bordelaise. They were both excellent! We also tried the Smithfield ham biscuit appetizer and wedge salad with horseradish dressing...both very good. For dessert we split the original "burnt creme" dessert which we loved. Literally everything about this meal was topnotch. Prices were average for Old Town, which is not cheap. We were expecting a tourist trap, but instead had one of the best meals of our vacation. Highly recommend.
