Upon tasting Cross Bones, with it's big body, smooth finish and lingering citrus flavor, it's hard to imagine that it's only 4.5%. Pairs Well with Salads, Mild Cheeses, Chicken and Fish

We've nicknamed it Hop3 (hop cubed) ale to reflect the enormous amount of hops in this beer: over three pounds per barrel! It is hopped three ways: in the kettle, in the hop back and dry hopped.

Massively dry-hopped, with a balanced malt sweetness, this irresistible force showcases the power of bringing in the extra artillery. Hop cubed - then squared (hop to the sixth)! We've kept the same malt recipe proportions as Loose Cannon, pumped up to 22 Plato (from 16.5) and then doubled the hops. We've captured the beautiful balance of Loose Cannon but we've doubled the firepower. Pairs Well with Strong Cheeses, Fish and Steak

Over the course of our dinner we had 5 different servers that alternated out. My spinach salad had none of the toppings that were listed on the menu and my friends fried chicken sandwich was a burned chicken sandwich. We waited 30 minutes after eating for someone to come and bring us the check. Mediocre food, which might have been okay, but in combination with truly terrible service it was unbearable.

The hostess was more like a bouncer, never smiling and barely saying hello. Waiter was better but not very attentive to the point our drinks showed up halfway through our meal. Meal was lukewarm and lump meat crab cakes were lumpless.

We had asked to be seated in the separate dining room at the back of the restaurant so that we could talk without the distraction of football playoffs on the televisions. All of our meals (from the crab pretzel appetizer to the cheesecake dessert) were exceptional. The discriminating beer lovers in our group were more than pleased with the selection and quality of the offerings. Our waiter, James B, went out of his way (literally and figuratively) to be attentive without being overbearing. All in all, we had an exceptional evening.

Tons-o-tomatoes! The flavor of the ahi tuna made up for it. My boyfriend ordered the crab cake sandwich and was very pleased with the choice. The Winter beer was good as well. Solid dining experience!

Upon arrival, lots of available street parking for FREE. It was a Saturday after 6pm. I was a little concerned as we walked up and the place seemed empty - less than half the tables were occupied. Turns out that this is the norm for Saturdays. Our server indicated that it can get very busy during the week. I got a flight of 4 beers, some Heavy Seas-some not, aided by my server. All were great. I also learned that it's half price growler fills on weekends. I ordered a House salad, which we ended up sharing due to the size. We both ordered burgers. I got the one with bacon and short rib on it. Everything about it was great - grilled bun, cooked to right temp, toppings - probably in the top 2 burgers I have ever had. It was huge, so get it if you are hungry. Also, there were just the right amount of fries to go along with it - they lasted to the end of the meal. We talked about it afterward and rated the meal/service a 9.5. We will definitely be going back...on a Saturday.

The smoked wings were delicious and so was the calamari. Good variety of beers. We were seated immediately. Would go back again.

Fish & Chips should be cod filet, not fish sticks. Should come with malt vinegar also and not piled on top of the chips.

French fries were nicely golden but cold. Server was inattentive and not at all engaging. It was as if he had too many tables that day but the place was empty. We had to ask to get served, ask for drinks, ask for the check etc.

Plenty of better options for seafood in Alexandria. Service was great and beer was excellent and not at all overpriced.

Crab cakes were dry, mashed potatoes were bland and texture was off. The dinner plate is surely NOT worth $29. I do not mind paying $$ for great food and this restaurant was NOT close to even being good, let alone OK. The buffalo burger with short rib and bacon fell very short of my expectations. I could have ordered the same quality burger from any fast food joint if one was close by our hotel. Another member of our party, who loves mac n cheese, ordered the short rib mac n cheese and honestly, velvetta would have sufficed if we had known this plate would have sucked that bad. The cheese was very watery and there was not enough beef in the meal. The beef that was in the plate, was mostly fatty. The kids menu was nothing to brag about and the waitress was just clueless and not helpful at all. Really, the best part of the meal was just leaving.

Their draft beer was unavailable due to a problem. Overall, the food was decent, though. The waiter was very nice and attentive.
