The staff were very friendly. Food was very tasteful and service was quick.
We have eaten here before and enjoyed it every time. Service is excellent. We arrived during an NFL playoff game, so it was noisy. All in all, a good experience.
Ordered the blackened grouper sandwich. The grouper came in two little pieces the size of 50 cent pieces. Looked more like two little sliders rather than a $16 sandwich. The fries and the cole slaw were good. The iced tea was very strong. It was loud with a football game being piped in overhead. Looks like a great fun place to watch s game with friends but a little tough to have a dinner date night out. I want to try a couple other things on the menu but will probably go during a Caps or Nats game.
The Food 🍲 was delicious and the service was excellent! The drinks were also great!
Had a great server who really knew the menu and she did not hurry us - even on New Year's Eve. Food was wonderful.
I had not eaten here since the recent renovations and menu changes. Wow, the place looks great and all four meals were on point. If you are a steak eater, try the strip. It is one of the best I have ever had!
The remodel looks great but the booths are very tight!
Joe Theismann was great for Christmas dinner. The service was very good. The seating was great. The food was very good. And the added benefit is that Theismann had a Christmas menu with choices, as well as the regular menu so everyone could do their own thing. That was fantastic. Everyone was happy and well fed.
So it seems with the new renovation, the menu changed. I have a gluten allergy and some of the gluten free items have been removed from the menu. I have always gone there for their delicious gluten free French onion soup, but they no longer make it gluten free. My salad was just okay after having to get a new one when I found some red plastic in the first one. The sangria I had tasted like dry champaign, nothing like a sangria. My best friend ordered a moscato and got some type of fake lemon drop martini and was charged $12 for it. She didn’t even drink it. It just wasn’t the best experience and I have always ranted and raved about this restaurant. Unfortunately, I most likely will not be returning.
Had a good time, will go back there again.I'm not much on write reviews.
Nice that it was open for Xmas 🎄
Good food and service
Pumpkin soup came out cold, the 2nd cup was very good.
Great food Great service
Thank you for the kind words! We hope to see you again soon.
My family and I really enjoyed our evening out, the staff was very pleasant and the food was great. We were there on Christmas eve to celebrate my mom's birthday.
Like the new look. Service was excellent. Wonderful Christmas Eve dinner with family. Thank you!
Hamburger for $16 was no good. Calamari appetizer- only sos-so. Sorry to be negative, but the family was disappointed.

Great service, great food, great company!
Thank you for the 5-stars, Sandy! We hope to see you again soon.
First night of dining at Joe’s the night prior (Friday) was so good the family decided to come back on Saturday. Was just as good the second time, PLUS got a chance to meet Joe in person and get a photo - my boyhood hero! My Son wants me also to mention specifically that the Salmon was amazing (and we all agreed!).
Hi, we appreciate you taking the time and leaving us a review! We are happy to know you came back a second time with your family and enjoyed your time with us. We hope to see you again soon.
Met an old friend from out of town. e were seated in the room just before the back. The cocktails we ordered were very good. The food was tasty and well plated.
Hi Mark, thank you for taking the time and leaving us a review! We are thrilled to hear you and your friend enjoyed our cocktails during your time with us and look forward to seeing you again.
Place looks great after renovations but because it I'd more open it sounds alot noisier. Food and service is still good with one exception, the fries! They are, in my view terrible. Not really French fries. They advertise them as skin on fries...more like potato skins. Found them dry and tasteless. They used to have great fries, lightly battered and crispy. Why mess with that. Will continue to go though as the overall atmosphere is very good.
Hi, thank you for taking the time and leaving us a review! We will make sure to pass along the sentiments to the team and hope to see you again soon.
the food was great, and our waitress was outstanding.. however, the Managers and host leave alot to be desired. We felt rushed to leave. Because they were standing over us waiting to seat another party. We left before we were really ready to leave because it was very uncomfortable.
Hi Monica, thank you for taking the time and leaving us a review! We are thrilled to know you enjoyed our dishes and will make sure to pass along the information provided to the team. We hope to see you again soon.
Didn’t have Colleen this time. Her section was filled. Our server was good. We had the pretzels and beer cheese. Yummy. The server advertised to order additional pretzels as there was a lot of beer cheese. Glad we took her suggestion. I had the chicken and waffles. So so good. Can’t remember what they are called but the apple doughnut holes are to die for and that Carmel sauce so good.
Hi Lisa, thank you so much for leaving us the kind words! We are ecstatic to know you had a wonderful time with us and look forward to hosting you again soon.
Good food, reasonably priced and great location right off of King Street metro. A regular dining spot for us!
Wow, thank you for the kind words, Roger! We are thrilled to know you enjoy our dishes just as much as we do and look forward to seeing you again.
Fries were cut unevenly thus cooked unevenly. Calamari was overcooked. Service was good. Crab dip was good.
Thank you for taking the time for leaving us a review! We will make sure to pass along this information to the team. We hope to see you again soon.
The food was excellent. If you go ask to set in Colleen’s section. She is by far the best server in the area. She is fun, knows the food and has great recommendation. You can tell Colleen loves her job and the people she serves. You can’t help walking out with a smile on your face with her as your server.
We will be back and setting in Colleens section.
I'd never been the Theismanns in the 40 plus years I've lived in Northern Virginia. I enjoyed my food (Chimichurri Flank Steak) and felt the service was above average. Parking was easy with complimentary free parking in the underground garage...so all in all not bad and I will return.
We life going there, BUT since it was remodeled they tend to turn up the music very loud in the seating area. That may be ok in the bar area, but otherwise people go there to visit with each other not listen to music. They did turn it down when we asked, and the same a previous time.
Hi Barry, thank you for leaving us a review! We will make sure to pass along the information to the team and hope to see you again soon.
Kerry was a great server. Food excellent
Hi Brian, thank you for taking the time and leaving us a review! We will pass along the sentiments to the team and hope to see you again soon.
Have always enjoyed the brunch here. But went this past Sunday and learned there have been some changes. Most notably the Chesapeake Eggs Benedict featured the smallest crab cakes I’ve ever seen (accompanied by the largest muffins I have seen). It tasted good but it was lacking in quantity. This is a change from other times I have been there. The restaurant has also been recently remodeled- I personally preferred the wooden booths to the tables. Not sure this will remain a regular go-to brunch for me anymore.
Thank you for taking the time and leavings a review! We are sorry you had a less than stellar experience during you brunch visit. We will make sure to pass the information to the team and hope to see you again.
Great food and friendly service. We love the Ambiance and the Christmas decorations.
Thank you for the kind words! We hope to see you again soon.
Very good food. Hamburgers very tasty and menu with a wide variety.
Thank you for the kind words, Roger! We hope to see you again soon.
The family has been to Joe Theismann’s Restaurant on a number of times two of them being Thanksgiving with them. Unfortunately, this time we’re we’re seated in the extended part of the restaurant which had no quality of atmosphere whatsoever. Always, in the past we have been seated in the main restaurant area. And considering we made the reservation in September you would think we would’ve gotten sitting in a desirable location.
My entire family felt as though we were seated at the children’s table. Our waitress seemed totally overwhelmed and uneducated. She consistently forgot various items which we consistently requested. Stating, she’s having a bad brain day. Simple request like a cup of coffee seem to be a major ordeal and we were never granted that request.
The food and portions were well received, but considering the atmosphere that we were placed in and the service that we we received, it will be questionable whether or not this Thanksgiving tradition will continue.
Hi Gil, we appreciate you taking the time and leaving us a review! We are sorry we did not meet and then exceed your expectations during your time with us and will pass along the information to the team. We hope to see you again.
Came here for Thanksgiving dinner around 6pm. Had been here for lunch before and had a good experience. We made reservations although there seemed to be plenty of seating. Restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Several options for the three courses. We had the pork loin and trout. Both dishes were great. Staff were prompt and friendly. Overall was pleased with the experience. Would go back.
Hi Leslie, thank you for taking the time and leaving us a review! We are thrilled to know you had a wonderful time during your Thanksgiving visit and look forward to having you again.
Food was obviously prepared in advance. Not horrible but not great. Convenient location wise but don’t try to park in lot before 5pm.... no parking validation and you will pay a $15 parking charge.
Hi Sammy, thank you for taking the time and leaving us review! We will pass along the information to the team.
Ambiance , service, and food offerings on Thanksgiving were minimal. Similar to last year. In years prior to last year it was a crowded but excellent experience with both special and regular menus available . Need to improve cocktail offerings or decrease the prices.
Hi Rodney, we appreciate you taking the time and leaving us a review! We look forward to hosting you again soon.
I have eaten at this restaurant many times but first Thanksgiving. Food, and service has always been impeccable. Remains consistent.
Thank you so much for the kind words! We hope to see you again soon.
We hoped to you gobbled til you wobbled!
We’ve always love JT’s! We’ve come here for Thanksgiving several years. This year they put tables in by the windows instead of the cozy booths, and unfortunately the food was sub-par. In the past it was wonderfully simple & traditional. This year the appetizer choice was horrible. We went with the crab vs the spinach dip. But they were spicy & overly fried. Had to ask for rolls—but they were not delicious like before. The stuffing was a new recipe—why change? We want exactly what we would make at home, but served with no cleanup or leftovers. I don’t need pumpkin seeds on my whipped cream either! Please go back to being the old JT! You were perfect (and had more customers)!
