We've been here twice & enjoyed
We've been here twice & enjoyed the food each time. Fun, small place. Though, each time, my martini has been pretty bad. Will order different drink next time. Appetizers are great.

Great local spot without having
Great local spot without having to mess with Old Town Alexandria parking and prices. Love this spot. Can't wait for Patio to open. The owners, Sam and Jason are great supporters of the community also by supporting local chamber and local schools. This is important to me as a consumer.

Wonderful Night at Walker's Grille
My wife and I visited Walker's Grille for the first time on the evening of April 7 to celebrate our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful experience. We chose the Walker Grille because of their emphasis on organically produced beef, seafood, and vegetables. The food was great and although the wait staff told us they were shorthanded, our waitress and hostess teamed up and did a fantastic job of taking care of us in a very timely manner. Also, I found the prices to be very reasonable. We will definitely be back with other family members and friends! Thank you Walker's Grille!

Lovely business lunch on the patio
I took a client to Walker's for lunch and we had a lovely meal on the patio. He had the fish-n-chips and I had the Nicoise Salad with grilled Salmon. We splurged and had a lunch-time cocktail too. The food was fresh and the service was friendly and attentive. If you work in or near Springfield, this is a great place to eat ... esp. on a sunny day on the patio. (Parking is a little tight at peak lunch time, so allow time to find a spot).

Great specials for the day
They had some outstanding specials that day. I have always enjoyed their food, but the speccials that day hit the spot.

Also love Walker's and was
Also love Walker's and was there this past weekend as well as for their Mother's Day Brunch. Saw the advertisement for the fixed price 3-course Mother's Day Brunch and wanted to try it out. Great service, superb food, and large portions (a 4 ounce pour? Really? Never seen that at Walker's or any where else for that matter!). Unlike many other places where it's over-crowded and you're made to feel rushed so they can seat the next party, we had a relaxing Mother's Day Brunch. The many times we've been there, if we've ever had any issues, the wait staff and/or the managers/owners have always been accommodating. Only place of this caliber in Kingstowne. I for one plan on coming back!

Yes, love Walker’s too and
Yes, love Walker’s too and was there this past weekend and for Mother’s Day. Great experience both times. Saw the 3-course fixed price menu they were offering ahead of time and thought it sounded good. Superb food, large portions (including the drinks! A 4 ounce pour? Really? Never seen that at Walker’s or anywhere else in fact!), and the service great. We were able to enjoy our Mother’s Day brunch without feeling rushed unlike so many other places where you’re ‘forced’ to hurry up with your meal so they can seat the next reservation! Also, if we didn’t like something (which is rare!), the staff and/or managers/owners have been very accommodating. There is no other place like this in Kingstowne. I plan on coming back as often as I can.

Nice outdoor dining spot
I had a fun evening at Walker's Grille. The outdoor seating is great because it's covered. We arrived in time to take advantage of happy hour specials, which are well priced. My friend and I shared the spinach dip and each had crabcake sliders. The dip was good, the sliders could have used a slightly bigger crapcake. There was more bun that crabcake, but they had good flavor. The service was certainly efficient and polite. I will certainly go back and try other entrees. The location is close to my house and the amount of outdoor seating and ample free parking make the restaurant more attractive. It's also away from the hustle and bustle of Kingstowne.

Kayla was our server and she
Kayla was our server and she is SUPER!
Prior to last week, my guest had not visited the restaurant, and she lives in the area. So, I suggested we go! This is a great restaurant, however, the service during some of my recent visits has been inconsistent with previous experiences. By far, this was my best visit in a long time! Kayla knows the menu, is courteous, and she smiled the entire time. Food was delivered in the appropriate amount of time and she checked on us often. I will ask for Kayla again.

The food was excellent and the outdoor table was great.

I have been there for lunch
I have been there for lunch and dinner a number of times and had always come away pleased, so my husband and I decided to try their Sunday brunch. We had an outdoor table for Father's Day. It was a prix fixed menu, and everything was incredible. The covered patio with ceiling fans kept everything cool and comfortable. The food was delicious, and the presentation beautiful. Ashton, our server, made sure we were well taken care of. Our three courses were served in a timely manner, but we were never rushed. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we were there and left feeling like it had truly been a special occasion.

Great Sunday Brunch Spot
Took my dad for Father's Day brunch and we were able to sit outside on the patio. Service was great--our glasses were always filled, fresh silverware was brought out for every course, and the server kept coming to check on us. The menu that day was a price fixe (because it was a special occasion), but there was enough variety that everyone found at least one thing from each course that they wanted. Everything came out as ordered and was all really delicious. I've been there for dinner several times and the regular menu is amazing--so many things to try for the first time with lots of old favorites mixed in. The comfortable seating outside makes it a great place for a happy hour or drinks after work on a warm, sunny day.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The menu offers a variety
The menu offers a variety of outstanding fresh dishes (horseradish crusted cod with lobster mashed potatoes) American favorites. We recommend starting with a appetizer or two. The staff is very attentive. The outdoor dining area is a combination of tables and sitting areas with fans that provide gentle air flow. This is a neighborhood gem!

Spread the Word
Walker's Grill is a great local option, one of the few nice restaurants in an area filled mostly with chain places! I was there on a Saturday night and it was not very busy. So far, it seems to do business mostly during the week with after work crowds from the surrounding offices. But spread the word if you live in the Kingstowne area because it's definitely worth going to! We sat on the bar side and were waited on by the weekend bartender. EXCELLENT service - very friendly and helpful, great cocktails too!
It looks like a GREAT place for a weekday happy hour on the spacious outdoor patio. (and they have happy hour specials Mon-Fri). There are huge fans and some outdoor couches, I definitely plan on returning.

Dinner With Son
My son and I had a great dinner at Walker's this past week. The Shrimp Bisque was excellent as were the entres. As always, service was very attentive and friendly.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The flavors were great, the presentation superb! Service was very good. They obviously wanted our experience to be a good one.

Surprise in an office building
Walker's Grill is walking distance from my house in Kingstowne, but I had never tried it until now. I will go back. The place is in an office building just off Beulah St-- no views, but plenty of parking and a nice covered outside patio with fans, although it was pouring rain the night I went, so didn't try it. Very modern inside so might get noisy when full, but early on a Sat night it was fine. Service is attentive if not elegant by any means. My friend and I both had the chicken francaise which was very good - not anything fancy just good. There are a variety of offerings at a variety of price points, decent wine and beer selections. I will try some other items soon.
7/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Love Walker's Grille! The food is fantastic -- fresh, seasonal! Service is consistently good and love the outdoor dining area. The only downside is that smoking is apparently allowed in the outdoor dining area. We enjoyed a fantastic early dinner outside and would've stayed for dessert but a couple of people from the inside bar came outside and sat/stood and smoked in the dining area. Realize smokers have rights too but sure wish they weren't allowed to smoke in the dining area - even if it is outside.

Not an Office Deli
The only reason that I didn't go before is that I thought this place was an office deli. I was surprisingly wrong. The decor, food and service were excellent, and they were able to handle a party of 6 which seems to confuse most other restaurants
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
Made a reservation for nine with visiting business colleagues. They were ready for us and we were given choice of inside or outside seating. We chose outside and were served by a very friendly and efficient server.
Just as our main courses were being delivered, a windy thunderstorm hit. We were quickly and seamlessly moved to an inside table - not a small feat with nine people! I'm very impressed and highly recommend!

Walker's Grill Experience
This was my second time visiting Walker's Grill, and we still enjoyed the food and atmosphere as we did our last visit. We also appreciate the servers attention to our group as well as the whole principles that the Walker's Grill with environment friendly and eco friendly.
Thank you for making a difference in the world we live in.

New Chef - Great Dishes
Had not been in several months, and evn though off the beaten path, remembered the inovative dishes in the past. The new chef is doing some marvelous dishes, crab gazpacho, seafood strudel, etc. Dropped by tables to determine satisfaction. Wine list has some reasonbably priced selections. Given location, lunch is probably packed, but nice crowd on the patio on a Friday night.

Had a great first time at Walker's
Stumbled upon this restaurant when I was looking for a close brunch spot after church. The restaurant was very quiet on Sunday afternoon, which was great for dining with a toddler! We also had great service from Ashton, and will definitely be going again!
I am looking forward to trying more menu options next time.
9/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
Ashton, our waitress, was helpful and friendly. The food was great.

Best steak ive had in years.
Best steak ive had in years. Great date place if you live in Springfield/Alexandria area. We had outstanding service by our waitress and the other staff seemed very attentive to their patrons. I was I bit disappointed the attitude of the floor manager. The costumer isn’t always right, but little charm and courtesy goes a long way.

Beautiful Outdoor Patio
Walker's Grill is a great option for business lunches in the Springfiled/Franconia/Kingstowne area. The service is good, the food isn't too heavy and, best of all, you can hear what your companions are saying. The outdoor seating area is lovely. I wanted to know what was planted in the boxes that surround the patio because it was all so colorful and lush. It was a nice break away from the office, and my clients were impressed.
9/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
My husband and I had dinner with another couple before going to the Kennedy Center. We wanted a place with good food; quick service and a quiet atmosphere. We found all that at Walker's Grille.
10/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great menu selection for brunch, fresh ingredients, good presentation, variety of breakfast meals, flatbread breakfast pizza was excellent, endless mimosa, cornflake crusted french toast was awesome, as well as the graham cracker pancakes, shrimp and deep fried grits!!!! Everything was amazing!!
10/4/2013 5:00:00 PM
First time trying this restaurant. There were five friends and we all enjoyed our dinner at Walker's Grille. The menu is very interesting and different. The food was very good with a French flair that gave the food a different take. All the food we ordered, calamari, trout, salmon and oyster stew were all very tasty, but the deserts were outstanding, especially a lemon cake with ricotta filling and the Warm Apple Beignets. Truly an enjoyable experience.
10/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
I've wanted to come here for awhile and finally made it for friend's birthday. Highly UNDER RATED! This place is fantastic. Lovely inside -- very hip, great service, artful and delicious food. And easy parking! What an incredible find. One of the best restaurants in Northern Virigina.
10/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Wonderful restaurant tucked away in a business park. I love their steak frites - it is what I almost always order. The French fries are addictive - ask for a side of the malt vinegar peppercorn aoli. Tried their Cajun delmonico too - with a side of those addictive fries instead of the hash. It was also quite tasty although not as spicy as some Cajun steaks I have had before. Desserts are also a strength - the truffles 3 ways & the lemon ricotta cake were wonderful.
10/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
The place is fine, but ...
... they make a big deal on the menu of their "environmental" policies ... which I guess some people care about. I go to restaurants for the food and setting. They need to make up their mind about what they are selling.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had Sunday brunch at Walker's and were blown away. The service was great and the food was hands-down fantastic. Highly recommend adding this to your list of places to eat.

Office park surprise in Springfield
I travel thru a 5 state area and am always on Open Table looking for something better than a chain restaurant ...and most of the time I'm happy with my choice. This time I was so happy, that even in an area with many many choices, I went back both nights of my stay.
A great menu, with lots of choices, steak, veal and pork chops, two or three fresh fish choices.....both my veal chip and my salmon were served on this amazing fingerling potato hash and good wines by the glass (AND 1/2 price bottles on Monday). I envy those working in the area !
10/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
Exellent Meal and very good
Exellent Meal and very good service from all the staff! It was too chilly for the patio although they had many heaters. Looks like it will be a fun spot in the summer.

Never a bad brunch
I've never had a bad brunch here. The food is delicious, different, and beautiful. Not the same as every other brunch menu. Ask for a dessert menu too. The apple beignets (more like fritters, to be honest) were yummy with vanilla ice cream, but were a little heavy handed in the sugar coating...still very tasty.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for lunch or brunch...and their outdoor patio with heaters is wonderful too.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Place for Dining
Love this restaurant! The food and service is excellent. I took some friends that was visiting from out of town, and they loved it----thought it was a great choice.

Walker's Grille has been one
Walker's Grille has been one of our favorite restaurants since they first opened. The food is really second to none we've tried in the NoVA area and the service is always outstanding! Love the chef's creative menu which changes seasonally in order to take advantage of fresh produce! Tried a new dessert last night - Truffles 3 Ways - heavenly! A perfect ending to our perfect dinner - salmon for me and the porterhouse for my husband! Oh, and if you enjoy a glass of pinot noir, you must try the Belle Glos "Clark and Telephone" Pinot Noir! Amazing!
