Implementing its original concept as a comfortable, friendly dining spot with great food & good value Joe Theismann’s offers what many restaurants don’t, character & personality.

This was referred to us by a friend of mine and let me tell you if you want a great steak then this is the pace for you! We ordered the surf and turf and ribeye and it was amazing! Great atmosphere and awesome staff. Jamie was a very attentive and had great suggestions. We will definitely be back!

First time to Joe Theismann's in Alexandria. Offers easy parking, reservations, comfortable relaxed atmosphere, large menu, good service and good food. Two of us had fish, cooked well, and two had other items on menu. Everyone was pleased. Would return.

We went to Joe Theismann’s the day after Valentines Day and had a great evening. The steak was great, as was the service. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. We’ll be back.

We come here regularly. Most of the time we get the specials offered. The $40 steak special was good, but way undercooked. I asked for the steak medium and got it rare. After waiting almost 15 minutes for the waitress to come back, I asked for it to be cooked a bit more. Almost 3 minutes later, the steak came back out more to the medium temperature I asked for. I have worked in the restaurant business for almost 12 years and I know it doesn’t take 3 minutes for steak to go from rare to medium. The steak was microwaved and came out tougher. Next time will just order regular steak from the menu. Love this place. It’s a shame that I paid $40 for a steak to come out of the microwave!

Enjoyed a relaxing lunch with old friends and family. Menu variety was quite good.

This was my 3rd restaurant week dinner. The others were quite good. This was pretty awful. Clam chowder that had no taste -- a blindfolded taster would not have been able to identify it. The entree was short ribs pappardelle. This was a large bowl of the noodles with -- not exaggerating -- a few shreds of meat with sauce. Once I picked through it enough to get a full fork full of meat I realized that I didn't even care for the taste. This has been an okay restaurant in the past so either it's gone downhill or it's just bad for restaurant week. Either way there are too many choices in this area to ever give Joe Theismanns another chance.

Laidback environment but very energetic crowds. Food was good, well-prepared, and was served in a timely manner. The 2 waiters that I worked with Derek and Allan; both provided great service, friendly personalities, and were very welcoming and inviting.
