Great Customer Service!

My husband and I are here now and just finished dinner. I ordered the Pumpkin Ravioli and wasn't a fan - wayyyyy too pumpkiny! So I ordered the Crab Cake dinner and it was delish! Being from Baltimore, good crab cakes are hard to come by. I've had better, but these were real good. My husband liked... read more

This restaurant was a delightful surprise. We started with calamari which was very good. The lump crab cake was seasoned just right. This came with paper stick fries and coleslaw. My husband had the ribs which he really enjoyed. Since it was my husbands birthday he ordered the chocolate bread pudding which was unique. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Service... More

We spent the day at Mt. Vernon and decided that on the way home (Maryland) we would stop on Alexandria for some dinner. Overwood was close to where we found parking and seemed like a good choice, We weren't disappointed. We got there early (like before 5pm) and were seated right away. The food was fantastic and we were able... More

I took my daughter and our family there to celebrate her birthday. We had reservations for a large party and asked to be seated in the private room. We had a great time and Saiid was the best. He made sure we had everything for our party. Also, the music that was played throughout the restaurant was awesome. We sang... More

Overwood is right on the street with only street parking, but there are many parking garages nearby for pretty cheap within close walking distance. We were able to get an 8pm reservation for New Years Eve a few days out and I'm glad we did. It started getting very busy as the night went on. We arrived right at 8... More

When visiting relatives in Old Town Alexandria we visited one of the favorite neighborhood bars. Just a few blocks off the east King Street (near the water), Overwood is a place many tourists may miss. The atmosphere is not unlike a "Cheers" type place with good drinks and bar food. Hamburgers and calimari were good. Jill is one of the... More

This restaurant is off the beaten path, so I expected they would be trying harder to get the business of locals. Our whole family went there and decided not to come back. The steaks were unexceptional, as were the sides. Nothing worth diverting off the beaten path for.
