“Don't let the outside appearance of the restaurant deter you!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

After reading many good reviews of this restaurant our party of 5 made reservations. Upon arriving, we almost turned around because the restaurant has no curb appeal whatsoever. We were starving so we decided to go and give it a try. The interior décor was much better than the exterior façade. Additionally the food and service was the best of our weekend. The crab cakes were amazing as was the lobster mac & cheese! Pricing was very reasonable given the area. Absolutely worth the visit.

“Unevenly cooked food”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

I thought this would be a nice restaurant to have brunch since the reviews were positive. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. I ordered simple pancakes, the first bod a are was decent. Then the next two were extremely under cooked. They were almost raw. One of the people I was with also had under cooked potatoes on his plate.

“Recommend the Crab Cakes!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We met our daughter and son-in-law for dinner at the Alexandria location of Chadwick's on a Wednesday evening in June 2014. The menu is varied and there is something for everybody. We arrived fairly early, around 6:00, and by the time we left there was a crowd waiting for tables. This restaurant is clearly popular with the locals. We, too, had coupons from a boat ride, and the waiter was nice enough to accept them all. Overall, service was very good and so was the food.

We had a variety of entrees, including fried chicken, steak , salmon. Everyone in my party was pleased with what they ordered. I had crab cakes. They were all crab, simple, and well spiced, and I would definitely order them again on my next trip.

Check out the restaurant's website. They have specials 3 or 4 times a week. The day we were there it was $5 martinis, but they also do half price burgers on Mondays, half price wine on Sundays, etc. For metro DC, these are some of the best specials we've found.

“Out of the way, but worth it”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

We got a coupon from our boat ride down the Potomac, so we thought we would give it a try. It was down close to the river. I have the ribs and they were delicious...meat just fell off the bone!
