  • "Can you believe it - this restaurant ran out of coffee!!!!! Our group of 4 finished an enjoyable dinner and we were ready for a great cup of coffee to finish the meal. Our waiter smiled and said we are out of coffee. We thought he was joking, but he wasn't. He could only offer us decaf. UGH!!!!! I have never been to a restaurant that ran out of coffee."

  • "First impressions were that this is a pretty noisy outlet. However, as requested we were escorted to a quiet table. Service was good, although it took 2 requests to get some water. Had a nice (very small) caesar to start washed down with a nice Sangiovese. Foolishly ordered the paella special. Worst paella I've ever tasted. Not oven cooked. Rice not soaked in seafood broth and saffron. Fatty chicken and seafood merely added to stodgy rice. Ugh! Should be avoided absolutely. Oh, and they don't know that they are obliged to take service dogs."

  • "My wife and I had a very nice dinner here while staying at the Sheraton Suites Hotel across the street. A nice neighborhood restaurant with good food and a friendly staff. The pork ribs with Texas BBQ sauce were very good and the mussels were plump and tasty with a good spicy kick to them. A good family style restaurant in a nice quiet neighborhood."

  • "It's a cozy place-split for a family section and what is seemingly a popular section for happy hour. We enjoyed the mussels and meatloaf."

  • "TJ Stone's is a neighborhood staple. The food is really delicious (especially their burgers and sweet potato fries) and very reasonably priced. Their beer and wine selections are also great. My only complaint is that drinks are slightly expensive, but it's great if you can catch them at happy hour. TJ's is great to go see a game in the bar, have a dinner date, and to go out with groups. There's something for everyone. We'll be back many more times!"

  • "After moving to the area and trying to get acclimated, the boyfriend and I were on open table and saw TJ Stones pop up. Unfortunately, it wasn't exactly what we had been expecting. We found out it was sister restaurant to Ramparts, which is just down the block from us. I think my BF had a burger, it was good, bar food-ish. I had a steak salad and they did cook my steak perfectly. I think we had the wings as well which were excellent. Although it wasn't exactly the romantic evening out I had wanted, it was good. And service was attentive. Would have liked to see a few more interesting dishes on the menu."

  • "This was my second time eating here. The first time was so good, I suggested it for dinner last night. This time was disappointing. I had the steak salad, which was unspectacular. The entrees my previous visit were no longer on the menu-crab cakes w/risotto and a whiskey glazed pork chop. These dishes were the reason for my return. With all the choices in Old Town I'm wouldn't recommend at this point. "

  • "Went for brunch after the GW Parkway Classic running race with my husband and parents at noon. Service was eh, food was eh. I ordered a beer. Bottle delivered by waiter, I asked for a glass. He looked at me kind of annoyed, "yeah, it's coming." Sorry bud, they usually come together. I ordered the saugsage, egg, and cheese sandwich - asked if I could switch out homefries for anything, he said no. Odd since they have a few other side items on menu, I would have paid more for a salad/fruit. Not impressed with the waiter. Brunch menu says egg on sandwich is "scrambled" - plate arrived and egg was poached/runny - which I hate. We had a flight to catch in 2 hours so I didn't even bother to ask the waiter to fix it. Overall, this was just eh."

  • "Worth a Return Visit A group of friends and I enjoyed a weekday evening meal at T.J. Stone. I entered the restaurant around 6:30 PM and found a bar room full with the after work crowd. Since we had a 5 month old baby in our group, I wondered if we had selected the right restaurant but we were quickly directed to a very large round table in the adjacent dining room. The decor was pleasant and the smell of wood burning in the fireplace filled the air in a nearly empty dining room. I found the service and the quality of ingredients was very good and the preparation excellent. I will return to T.J. Stone soon to sample another menu selection."

  • "Overall, average restaurant in the Old Town area. Appetizer was great, chips and spinach dip will not disappoint. They fell short on what was supposed to be a better items on the menu, their strip steak. I had it cooked medium rare, and knew before I cut into it that is had been frozen a long time. It had a very pale color on the outside, almost like an Omaha steak, and it was also very stiff. The sides were great and my wife loved her vegan sandwich. Overall, great bar atmosphere or place for large groups/kids, but not for those wanting excellent food."

  • "It was our second time at TJ Stones, but we were not disappointed. Food was very good and of good quality. Portions were nice and we enjoyed ourselves dining from the St. Patrick's day menu. We saw other items coming to various tables around us and all of the food really was presented nicely and looked very appetizing. Service was a little off, but the restaurant was busy for the celebration. We will definitely return back and hope to sit next to the fireplace in the future."

  • "All 4 people loved their dishes. This place gets less attention being off King, but there is easy parking in a lot across the street, good beer list, and great food."

  • "Extensive menu and outstanding wine and beer selection. Food was good but the service was very uneven. Was approached for our drink order twice immediately after sitting down and before we'd had a chance to peruse the drink menu. Then we had to wait forever for the waiter to reappear."

  • "The food and service were very good. We had an enjoyable time. However, we were a party of six seated at a table for 8-10 and the music was loud, which made it very hard to talk to one another. I think we will return, but we will be careful in our seating."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The ambience and food were good. The service was slow once we were seated. We were seated about two feet gem another couple and the server would come and ask them if they needed anything and then would walk off without acknowledging us. Other than this, everything was good, but they need warm bread and butter, which we had to request. Overall good experience and will probably go back for a second visit."

Food, Atmosphere, Parking in the Lot Directly across the street, Service, Cost...this place is A # 1 in our book and we have eaten in over 25 restaurants in Alexandria Old Town area. Thanks for the great time!! You're GREAT!! The fireplace was Great too!!!"

  • "This rating is based strictly on the food. The chicken was incredibly dry, and the venison was overpowered by the sauce/artichoke. Three tater tot balls does not constitute an appetizer."

  • "Nice North Old Town Alexandria location with pretty cool bar & great beer list. Large fireplace in dining area really added to the ambience. I had the half-rack of ribs with baked beans & sweet potato fries. Ribs were good but the sides were fair at best. Service left a bit to be desired. I requested lemon with my water, waitress said she'd bring it right away, but I eventually went to the bar to get it myself. While I was disappointed with the service, I'll probably give T.J. Stones another chance to redeem themselves."

  • "On a cold Thursday, we came here looking for comfort food. The Rest. Wk menu looked like a good deal. The service was attentive & pleasant, the ambiance was very comfortable and the prices were fair. But our 9-ounce pour of wine was short & more like 6 oz . The food came out quickly. The shareable appetizer was 3 golf-ball sized "potato puffs" but the insides were mushy and raw with a very strange texture. Both veal entrees looked nice with a tasty sauce but the veal pieces were burned on the bottom & the rizotto was way under done. The strudel was delicious. Twice we gently told the server about the food & but there was no effort to make it right. We told the manager also, and he just smiled & thanked us as we left to never return."

  • "There were 6 of us, which sometimes makes it hard for everything to run smoothly. Our waitress was very good at keeping things flowing and she had a very good attitude. We had Calamari and Tater Tots for appetizers, both very good. Since we were all drinking and at different rates of time, the poor waitress constantly had to go back and forth for drinks. I do have to say, I much prefer the drinks that the "day time" bartender better than the one that was there at night. The drinks were very weak. and overall much better during the day. Our meals came out 2 at a time, not all together and 4 if us had to send our fries and Mac and Cheese back because it was cold. But, our food was good and we will return."
