Would not have gone, except it was raining and we didn't feel like walking Old Town and this was very near our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised - very nice dinner.

Had a great brunch with family
Had a great brunch with family and friends. Service was great and food was very good.
Sitting by the window was a little cool. Experience was enjoyable for a Sunday.

My party and I were vewry
My party and I were vewry much surprised. We expected a hamburger place. On the countrary. It matched up with any restaurant I have eaten at, around the world. A bit pricey, but expected in town, and worth it

We headed to Joe Theismann's for dinner on Mother's Day. We had a reservation for four adults and a toddler, and were greeted warmly. The service was great, if not a bit rushed at times. Our toddler was pleased with his food selection, and was quite comfortable in his high chair. Our steaks were excellent and the other entrees were also quite good.
We'll go back!

Great Mother's Day Brunch
There were seven of us, that included 2 mothers.
The special Mothers Day menu was great, the food was delicious and the service outstanding.
We'll be back.

Review of Joe Theismann's
My friend, a foodie and wine dude, and I had a great lunch on Tuesday, 5/14/20013. We had grilled chicken and flank steak respectively. Really nice cuts of meat, done to perfection. Great sides of veggies and mashed potatoes. Delicious coffee.. Cost was quite reasonable; service and ambience very good.
I would and will come back again soon to this great find.

Favorite Restaurant in Alexandria
Every time we are in the Washington area, we make it a point to stop by Theismann's for dinner. We are never disappointed. Great food at a fair price with excellent service.

We booked this restaurant after we walked past when we were visiting King St. in Old Town Alexandria VA. I am a Redskins fan and wanted to see what the old QB had going. We dressed for the occasion it being our anniversary, though we found that the restaurant was more casual dining.
We were seated in a somewhat private corner, far enough from the noise of the bar, but also in view of at least two large screen TV's in case we wanted to catch a score from a sporting event. There are plenty of TV's set to the regular Sports networks.
The waitress was attentive and courteous, she gave us time to view the menu, explained the specials and made recommendations.
The Food was well prepared and the flavors were unique and exceptional. 4 Stars!

Foods and Service are fantastic! Waiter told us that there is 1/2 price off for glass of wine from Happy Hours. We took it. I ordered for French onion soup, roasted salmon, garden salad, and homemade raspberry ice cream. Those are very delicious! Yes, it's very popular that night and overcrowd. My friend and I had a good time there, fantastic!

This restaurant is not a bad place to get food if you are in the area and the service is not bad either. They have a variety of food for those of you that don't like to go to places that only have certain types of food.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
There are just a few places I take business clients to lunch or dinner - this is one. I not only am never disappointed, I am surprised by how well they do!
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the second time we've visited Theismann's and we enjoyed ourselves once again. We were disappointed that our waiter from last year's visit no longer works there - the server that we had (don't remember her name because she wasn't as attentive as our last server), but the food and location were still great. We'll be back when we come back to Alexandria.

We ordered mussels, garden salad dish, roasted salmon, and other special dinner entree that we loved it. Hostess and waitress are hard working as well. Everything is great!
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were a party of 5 and the restaurant was quite busy when we arrived. The service was excellent rom the moment we walked in the door when the host welcomed us to when another very friendly host (Alina) sat us and told us our server Hamed would be right with us. He was attentive, not too hovering and seemed to show up at our table at just the right time throughout our dinner. We ordered steaks that were flavorful and cooked superbly and my children ordered Fish n Chips and pizza, which were also very good. Check this place out, great for families as well as good place to catch up with friends.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
A bit surprising...
Frankly, we weren't expecting much - we thought this was just a sports pub and it was convenient for the folks who were joining us via the King Street Metro. We were very favorably surprised by the quality of the food and the friendly service. Nice to have a pleasant surprise. Would recommend this for good food at a fair and moderate price.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We live in the neighborhood and use this as our rendezvous point for drinks with friends or a dependably tasty meal for the 2 of us after a long day at the office. Service is always courteous and the prices are right.

Five-Stars for Food and Service
Joe Theismann's has an upscale sports-bar ambience, but the menu offerings and specials are 5-star restaurant caliber! Add to that, the excellent service - and you have a great restaurant for all occasions.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Name recognition no more.
We chose Theismann's for name recognition but we will remember it for the fine dining. The quality of the food was great.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were staying in Alexandria and were looking for a nice meal for dinner on our anniversary trip to the D.C. area. Tis restaurant was very close to our hotel, so we thought we would try it after viewing the menu and reviews online. I ordered the mahi mahi over lobster risotto...amazing! My husband ordered the blackened seafood tri and loved it! The pretzel loaves were also a great appetizer. We dined outside and had great service. We will definitely be back!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better Than Expected
Met three others for a business dinner and it was better than I expected. I had the Seared Scallops over Polenta and it was done to perfection. Often times you get scallops overcooked, but these were done perfect. The noise level was Ok, there was a group of ladies next to us that were kind of loud, made our table conversation a little hard, but we dealt with it.
Solid beer selection from my standpoint and the server was quick to give me a recommendation when I told him I like hoppy beers.
Only complaint (minor) with service was that the waiter didn't refill our water glasses when we were getting low.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
On a trip to Washing D.C. and stayed in Alexandria. Wonderful restaurant with excellent wait staff and good food (try the lobster bisque).
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
You can't go wrong here. The food and service are great! Yes it's a sports bar, but in many ways you might not notice, given the excellent service and menu selections.
7/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
We have been going to Joe's on a regular basis for the last 6 months. My wife told everyone in our party of 5 this past Sunday that it was by far her favorite restaurant. She loves the location, the atmosphere, the food, the choice of meals, the drinks, and the service.

Foods and beverage are fantastic! We had been there before but I was there many time. I love the roasted salmon and side of garden salad except the homemade raspberry ice cream mmmm!
7/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
from reservations thru paying the bill, the whole experience was very pleasant. Friendly, prompt service and great food.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and a fun time!
Our group of four each had a delicious meal and fun along the way. Our server, Louis (or Lewis), got us off to a great start with some light hearted banter and persuaded our ladies to try the Pink Lady. We all enjoyed our entrees including rock fish, salmon, shrimp and pasta and crab cakes. The bisque was rich and the North Carolina clam chowder was an interesting change from New England clam chowder. The desserts were tempting but we were so full we just had a peanut butter pie slice to go. The noise level was acceptable despite all the TVs. This restaurant is too classy to be called a sports bar but the place has some energy that is lacking at other places.

Food and service were excellent.
Food and service were excellent. Noise level was excessive to the point where conversation was difficult. Parents let their loud noisy and rambunctious kids run all over the restaurant with equally noisy toys. They thought this was perfectly ok to be offensive and intrusive of other paying customers. Parents need lessons in etiquette. If children can not sit at the table with their party, the parents should not take them out. Watch "Super Nanny" for lessons.

Good Food and Service
It had been awhile since we had been to Joe Theismann's. It is a good place with good food and service. We were there early evening on a Sunday and although the restaurant was not full, the noise level was such that you could easily carry on a conversation. I suspect that on Redskins Sunday's that may be different, but then again you wouldn't go there on a Redskins Sunday expecting a low noise level -- I hope.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Restaurant in Prime location. The food and service was great. Only issue we had was parking. We survived and will visit this place again.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Joe Theismann's is a favorite of mine and this time did not disappoint. Outstanding all the way around from the moment we entered to the time we left.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had dinner with my family from our of town! Everything from the moment we walked in door to leaving was absolutely wonderful. Great hostess and Jody was amazing! Will be back!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food. Good service. I would definitely return and/or recommend it to a friend. Went for my girlfriend's birthday and she enjoyed it. Great place for a "date night".
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Theismann's is terrific
Very enjoyable experience. Everyone's (six) food was delicious and the service was exceptional.

Great location, (right across from the King street metro (blue line), excellent food. Food is incredibly good. Cole slaw and fish dishes are excellent. Service is exemplary. Ask for Peter or Debra.

From PR to Alexandria
Excelent service, beer and bread.
We are from Puerto Rico I will recommend this place! Thank you!,,
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had been there few times. Everything is great but overcrowd! Very popular still so far. YOU must come to them that you will love their foods and beverages!
9/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Reliable place for good food, service and atmosphere.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Both the Filet & the Blackened Ribeye are primo. Happy Hour (on Friday, at least) runs 'til 7pm -- later than most other eateries.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my fisrt time there and I was completely surprised. This place has been around for at least 20 years and they're still rocking out great food!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was food and service was excellent. Prices reasonable and very clean.

First Time at Theisman's
We had a group of four business travelers who are used to being disappointed. Every one of use came away from dinner thinking it was one of the best places we 'd ever eaten at. Everything was done right! If you have a chance to go, take it !
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Took A Chance
I decided that I wanted to take my wife some place different for her birthday. I wanted to go to Olde Town. So I checked several restaurants online and simply decided to try 'Joe's'. I've passed by it many times and just never thought much about it. We could not have been more pleased with the choice. It seemed such a familiar and inviting place. We will be going back.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was good, not great
The food was good, not great but very good. The service was excellent. The restaurant was not noisy.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I ordered for roasted salmon and glass of white wine. It's VERY delicious, yummy!
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
From start to finish the meal and service were superb! We arrived early-were greeted at the front door unlocking and opening early because it was cold outside. The hostess was well aware of our reservation and cleared the location of our table with us before seating us. She understood we wanted to talk about a seminar we had just attended. Our server was beautifully dressed and professional. She cleaned the table off between each course and followed all etiquette rules perfectly. She explained all specials and was very accommodating. The food was perfectly prepared- we each had salads. One steak, one chicken, and one shrimp. I think we each ate every bite. The check was handled correctly and we were walked out! We couldn't be more pleased!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was great. Everything we had was wonderful. My friend said she'd been going to Theismans for Thanksgiving for a few years and they loved it!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loving the new screens/new look around the restaurant. Someone who enjoys sports, makes it easier to enjoy good convo, good food, good drinks and a good view.
Thanks for doing that! It shows you're catering to customers.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food is Great!
I came there often because I loved the grilled salmon with spinach and white rice, yummy! I'm very crazy about their homemade raspberry sorbet, yummy!
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Joe Theismann's was a great
Joe Theismann's was a great place to have a Thanksgiving Dinner, not only did we had a good selection of Entrees but the portions was done well. The service was great. Joe Theismann's also allowed us to add people to our table that arrived in the area unexpectedly. They did it with a smile.

Thanksgiving in DC
Perfect for a casual, yet very nice, We had Thanksgiving day family dinner with our kids (8 and 11). Outstanding food, service and value. Nice menu options other than turkey. Filet mignon was cooked perfectly and everything was fresh and delicious. Our server was Deborah - she was so nice and answered questions we had about the Metro. She was very pleasant and did not seem put out to be working on Thanksgiving. The restaurant is decorated with sports memorabilia and pictures, although it has a much more refined feel than your typical sports bars. I would recommend Theismann's for a nice dinner out or some drinks and appetizers at the bar. We will definitely put Theismann's on our list of places to eat when we return to DC in the future.
