Food was good with the exception of the asparagus being cool. The sweet potato tots were delicious and the wine selection was perfect with my filet. I’ll dine here again.

Theismann's never disappoints. They came through on short notice to accomodate group of 8 for birthday celebration. Food and service were outstanding. And they even gave the birthday boy a dessert and a card signed by staff and chef, which he really appreciated. Thank you, Theismann's. You guys always knock it out of the park!

Intown for family reunion while hotel few feet away from restaurant. A few family members just left and tried to convince us not to have dinner here, but after the long travel we just have in smh. Should have listen because we order a kids meals for my 3 yr old and the mixed fruit had mold all over it. So we let the waitress know what we seen and she was so amazing with taking care of the situation but we have never experienced something so disgusting and unsafe as this at a restaurant. So we will not be dining here again even though the waitress gave us a gift card.

We hadn’t been here in years so we thought we would check it out. This is upscale pub food. Good size portions. Food was fresh and tasty. Nice for a weeknight meal with kids. Free parking that is a bit hard to find. Outside dining area. We had ribs, chicken spiralle and fish and chips. All were very good. Our server was attentive and helpful. We would go back.

It has been a while since we had visited, and apparently had forgotten what a great restaurant and bar it is! We met our daughter last evening at Joe Theismann's Restaurant and had a wonderful dinner and drinks in a perfectly enjoyable atmosphere. It could not have been better, with great service, excellent food and drinks, with a very competent and friendly server. What else could have hoped for? Nothing...it was outstanding! We will not forget Joe Theismann's Restaurant ever again!!!

I love this restaurant but I won't be returning. "Courtesy" parking garage cost me $18.00 b/c I overstayed the 2 hr. limit [which I was unaware of]. Very decrepit garage anyway & difficult to maneuver & I ended up with a scrape on my car.

Spur of the moment decision to go to Theismann's for a late lunch. Got a reservation quickly. Easy parking in the garage that allows you to enter directly in the restaurant. Tasty menu options, prompt ordering and food delivery. Started with the fried pickles - which were outstanding. (have had them other places and these were by far the best I've had). Reuben sandwich - which was tasty but huge. Had to take half home. My companions both shared that their choices were also excellent. Chicken club sandwich for one. And soup and sliders for the other. Price was fair for what we received. Service was excellent. Place was clean, staff had on masks, was very comfortable with how they handle everything. We'll certainly be back.

We had a new server. She used to great guests at the front door. She was pretty good. We gave her some good tips on wine service.

We sat outside. It was warm out there last night. I only say that because it was nice and cool inside. Sitting outside is nice, but with the street traffic it can get rather loud. For New Years (although we have never been there for NYE) they open something up on the roof. Wish that could be used for an outside dining option as well.

Terrific location in Alexandria, right across from the Metro, Theismann's is a large venue so tables are nicely spaced. With a huge inviting bar, one can sit and look out the large windows for good views. The buses and trolleys are outside the street so hope on a trolley and take a tour of Alexandria, for free. The restaurant was busy on a Friday, so the manager himself pitched in and took our orders. I was most impressed.
