“Great food and service...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Just a good restaurant which just happens to have Joe's name on it. The food was very tasty, nice recommendation from the staff. Service was very attentive and pricing was good. Nice selection of beers and wines as well. Joe, where were your CFL memories and memorabilia....didn't see anything there.

“Very Good Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Theismann's was recommended by the Hampton Inn's front desk. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. It was a little pricier than we expected. The kids wanted steak, so they split the 14 oz NY strip ($35) which was plenty. I had the grilled salmon salad. The salmon was cooked perfectly and wasn't at all dry or overcooked. My husband enjoyed the Philly Cheesecake sandwich. We also tried the lava cake, cheesecake, and peanut butter pie - all were delicious. They offer sandwiches, salads, and chef specials of steak and seafood. It is sort of an upscale sports bar with TVs tunes to sports channels. It is a very short walk from the Hilton and the Hampton Inn in Alexandria. I would recommend this restaurant. Be aware that the salads and sandwiches are reasonably priced, but the specialty dishes will cost $18 and up ($35). Dress is casual.

“great gluten free options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

we had 2 dinners at Theismann's. the first quite elegant -- great food, good presentation, and terrific wait staff. the second night we had more casual fare -- also very good and efficient wait staff. the offerings of gluten free fare was huge to us as my husband needs GF food. I ordered off the GF portion on the second night, since his first night dinner was easily as good as mine

“Nice place for a meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Has a wide variety of food options, including the usual bar style food. Several TVs to watch the games and a nice place to go if you are looking for a low key, good dining night with a few drinks
