Joe's was less than a block from our hotel. In town for a business meeting, we had reservations and were seated immediately on arrival. The wait staffers were welcoming, efficient, and knew their menu. The evening's specials were announced, orders were taken, any drinks were delivered, and the evening rolled on. Having ordered a medium rare steak, along with a... More

Our server, Adam, was fantastic and provided unforgettable service. He was so attentive and fun with the kids that they remember him by name! I had the spiral cut ham, husband got the prime... More

Not a lot of menu selections but ones we tried were all good - crab dip, salmon, pretzel, pork chop. Wait staff was pleasant and prompt food delivery; however we were thirsty and had to ask three times for a picture of water to be left at the table. This was supposed to be a business discussion dinner but we... More

Joe Theismann's is both a family restaurant as well as a singles or for grown ups with no kids kind of place. The food is good and the prices comparable to other places in Old Town Alexandria. Nice outside seating in good weather.

Several rooms and areas in this restaurant. There are TV 's in one section , but not in all. Good menu, well projector Old Town Alexandria. Good food, from appetizers to main courses. Good coffee, which is really important to me. Noise level can be high, depending on where your table is. Servers are knowledgeable and have always answered questions.

Went with a group. Vegetarian options very heavy on cheese. No vegan options. Service was prompt and friendly.

Started with beer near the bar, great happy hour prices. Sat for dinner in the back, quieter. Fabulous service. Ordered hamburgers...soooooo good! Menu varied, some great upscale choices...and some good old "bar food." A little bit for everyone....Right off King Street Metro, very easy to get to. Would recommend leaving the kiddos at home, adult atmosphere.

Theismann's is, for me, too much like a standard chain restaurant. If that's your Cup of tea, you will be pleased with it.
