My wife and I dine at OverwoodMy wife and I dine at Overwood at least once each month. On Mother's Day we enjoyed the lunch buffet. The restaurant provides an excellent assortment on their occasional buffets and everything is fresh tasting and well prepared. On other occasions, entrees are delicious and their fire singed brussel sprouts are especially wonderful5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTo substitute Mac & CheeseTo substitute Mac & Cheese for asparagus, we were charged a $2 up-charge, despite the fact that both items are the same price on the menu. We found this annoying. Also, they serve what appears to be a delicious pepperoni pizza, but only children are allowed to order it. These rules seem arbitrary, capricious and completely unnecessary. The food we ordered was delicious.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant, great locationA very good restaurant in the heart of Old Alexandria, two blocks from Potomac River. The food is great, the service very good (also a bit slow). Besides it is not expensive for an Old Alexandria restaurant.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove average.Good service, nice place, but loud! Above average food. Ribs were tender but bland once you got past the sauce. Streaks and meat loaf were quite good.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for my birthdayWent there for my birthday dinner and couldn't have been happier! All their desserts sounded delicious and I was quite satisfied with the Elvis pie. While the food and drinks were exceptional, it was the service that really went above and beyond. I would gladly go back for another meal.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is or second timing diningThis is or second timing dining here. A few notable points: service was attentive and our server was really pleassant; green tomato appetizer was really tasty; they had a party of about 12 and had set up a nice table for them in an enclosed open area right outside the restauant which i thought was really nice.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for date night as wellGreat for date night as well as pleasing visiting family.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and livelyWe love this restaurant, the service, and especially the food. The steak, garlic-smashed potatoes, and asparagus paired with a glass of Loosen Bros Reisling is divine. The noise level at this visit was so loud you can hardly hear yourself think, especially because the table we were seated at was next to the bar (and there was a big birthday group of 12 right next to us). Definitely a nice place to dine, good food, and located conveniently in Old Town Alexandria.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a surprise birthdayWe had a surprise birthday party of 14 on a Saturday evening and they were great!

The Easter buffet was fantastic and the service was friendly and great as always .3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for a family brunch inWent for a family brunch in the morning, and couldn't have been happier. Our waiter was very accommodating to our needs, leaving us alone when we were chatting away, but were also very good to check in on us well before we needed anything without being intrusive. The food was delicious, mimosas and bloody marys well mixed, and the coffee was excellent! I highly recommend this for brunch. Even our picky eaters were happy!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food, well prepared,Very good food, well prepared, generous portions, reasonable pricing (unique to Old Town). Service was attentive. A little on the noisey side.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood service, great food.Good service, great food. Only negative was that we ordered white wine and it was brought to the table warm. Bottle had never bee chilled.we should have been offered another choice, but the waiter drop it in go a wine bucket and told us it would be chilled in 10 minutes. We ended up pouring our own over top of a bit of ice.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a good, solid, tastyJust a good, solid, tasty restaurant. Good food, at a reasonable price. Good draft list, as well. I would recommend sitting in the front room, though. We have been seated in the back (closer to the kitchen) a couple of times, and it's very dark, and not nearly as nice as the front room / bar area. Service is always friendly.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner outstanding, dessertDinner outstanding, dessert outstanding, wine outstanding........thank you!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHaving lived in AlexandriaHaving lived in Alexandria for almost 10 years, I can't believe I hadn't been here before. I'm a big fan of Boulevard Woodgrill so obviously I loved Overwood. I can't wait to go back!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing. TheyThe food was amazing. They use locally sourced ingredients and everything was so fresh. The roasted brussel sprouts were a hit as much as the mac and cheese. The only complaint we had was that we were too full to order dessert. We are already planning our next trip there!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a family brunch atWe had a family brunch at Overwood. The menu has something for everyone, and the waitstaff is used to and friendly towards kids. We all enjoyed the meal - the food was good, as was the service. Overwood is one of my go-to restaurants; I know I'll be back!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely dinner in Old Town.We arrived and shown to a lovely table near the window. We were greeted promptly by our server and ordered our beverages. My dining partner had the beat salad, which was deemed very good. My chopped salad with cranberries was also very good and both salads were generous portions and could probably be split if you were desiring a smaller salad.
My dining partner ordered the salmon and substituted the rice for the potatoes. The pairing ended up being quite good. I ordered the strip steak and potatoes. The steak was cooked perfectly and the sauce was fabulous. Both of our dishes were served with excellently prepared asparagus. Once again the portions were generous. It was our first time here but we will be back!3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCharming Pub Restaurant in Old TownThis was our first visit to Overwood - the staff was very friendly and responsive - the interior was quite attractive and inviting. However the food was just above average - the selection on the menu was very extensive - was surprised that no bread and butter was served before the meal - but great champagne by the glass and we enjoyed ourselves very much!!3/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
