While visiting our aunt in Springfield, Virginia, we treated her for dinner, her choice? Kilroy's. The interior is tired, but I have to say we loved the wonderful old posters, that cover their walls...from old Rockwell to vintage WWII, all of it very patriotic. The place is a neighborhood bar and restaurant and always busy. We sat in the dining room where it was quieter. The bar was hopping, it was Monday night and people were coming in to eat and watch football.
The food is good, really good. I had their "STEAMED SPICED SHRIMP - 1/2 pound of Jumbo gulf shrimp steamed with Old Bay seasoning and served with cocktail sauce." The shrimp were large, like prawns and perfectly seasoned and cooked. My husband had their "PRIME RIB - A full cut of mouth watering beef, carefully seasoned, slow roasted, hand carved and skillfully trimmed," and it was just that. Our aunt had She Crab soup and said it was scrumptious.
Our waitress was friendly, but not attentive. She brought me plenty of napkins to keep my hands clean while I peeled shrimp, but never kept our table bussed, so it was a mess by the time we finished dinner. The horseradish they brought out for my husband's prime rib was old, so was the cocktail sauce they served with my shrimp. Bottom line, the food is great, but the service really needs improvement. The place needs a facelift. It doesn't look clean like I l would like from a restaurant.
