Decided to give it a try and was so glad we did. The sweet potato tots were an amazing appetizer, and was plenty for the 3 of us. The salmon was outstanding and my daughter loved the chicken pasta dish. My wife’s salad was a little on the salty side, but still really good. We finished off with peanut butter pie. Sooooo good and it was a huge piece. The service was excellent.

Love the location. Our server, Erica went above & beyond. Food & drinks were great. My friend and I enjoyed our first time at this restaurant. We sat outside which had heaters above the patrons to keep us warm. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you're visiting the Alexandria or D.C. area.

We sat outside...which is nice. Due to it being busy, we did not have a designated server, but two managers taking care of us. We also enjoy each night being a "half price bottle of wine night", but when the bill came it was not discounted. Not the first time this has happened. It was corrected.

Servers were great, checked in frequently. Black and blue burger was good, wings tasted like they were frozen and reheated. My guest’s Reuben was fatty, need to remove speckle before putting it in a sandwich. Hostess was great, she even checked on us.

Both nights servers were awesome. (Sat - Ericka, Sun - Katie). Made my birthday weekend very special!
The food was absolutely the best!! Ribs Sat - best ribs we’ve ever had. Sun - salmon entree was FABULOUS. I’m not a big fan of green beans but they were phenomenal! Thanks again for everything!

This last few days we’ve had amazing weather and Old Town Alexandria finally had people In the streets, horns honking on King St, it’s been almost 1 year since I’ve seen this city Alive like this. We wanted to take advantage of it as well
And had not been to here in years. The food is well prepared and always tasty , for Northern Va, the prices are more then reasonable. The pandemic has forced them to cut back shifts and extra staff , which I truly appreciate and I would recommend management watch how long in between drink order, food order, anything to be received and the wait for the check .. our waitress was on point, she had a lot to juggle from what I saw. I hate giving anything other then perfect , but you need to know our experience

The service and food was good. However, it was so loud that we could barely hear each other talk. There was a group at the bar that was obnoxious and drunk. I was hoping someone would say something to them but no one did.

As always Joe Theismann’s is a beautiful, peaceful restaurant to dine at. However this time the food just wasn’t good. I had the fish n chips (which I always get) and it was super salty. My daughter had the lemon pepper wings and it was as if the chef dropped the bottle of seasoning on the chicken. Couldn’t even barely eat them.

Always a nice place to go. They used to have these nice rolls, but now they have toasted pita bread and it is just as nice. Every night is still 1/2 price bottle of wine night.....you can't beat that.

Pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was! The restaurant felt more like a bar atmosphere since the tables bordered the bar and steaks were quite pricey but we left very satisfied.
