Valentine’s Day - very nice foods... service was good. Way too much noise
Thank you for the review! We will share the information about the noise level with the team. We hope to see you again soon.
I always recommend for people to come here and enjoy a great spot that has great food
Thank you for the kind review, Felicia! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
We had reservations for 7:00, and didn’t get a table until 7:40! Then it was in the bar, very noisy. Didn’t get to enjoy the company we were with for all the noise and bar activity.
We’ve come here for the last 5 years for a conference and Alway eat Valentines Day Supper here! Not again, sorry it just didn’t measure up to the cost of the evening.
So, we decided to try a new place and made a reservation for Valentine's Day 2020 – Unfortunately, Joe Theismann’s fell short.
Greeting & Atmosphere: A busy night so we expected to wait. Reservation for 6:45 – seated at 6:58. "Waiting area" very cramped and not designed for such a crowd. Hostess staff was very friendly and efficient. Atmosphere is more of a sports bar than a nice restaurant.
Wait Staff: Waitress was nice enough, but nearly every encounter contained "excuses". "I'll try, but wine glasses are hard to come by tonight." "I told the bartender what you wanted." "The kitchen is probably overworked."
- Crab Dip appetizer - OK - but nothing outstanding.
- Wedge Salad - good - hard to mess up cutting a head of lettuce into 1/4 pieces.
- French Onion Soup - soup tasted good. Presentation - not so much.
- Salmon with red potatoes and grilled asparagus - Salmon was good although a little overdone. Potatoes were simply boiled and placed on the plate – had no flavor. Asparagus grilled but pale in color and lacked any flavor. Best part of this dish was the roasted tomato-dill butter.
- 8oz Filet Mignon w/ grilled asparagus and substituted a loaded baked potato without bacon. Asparagus pale and lacked any flavor. “Loaded” baked potato (minus bacon) just had a large scoop of sour cream down the middle – no cheese, scallions or anything. Worst part – the potato was brown as if it had been soaked in beef broth giving it an odd/salty flavor. Filet was ordered medium – came extremely rare. Sent it back – well done on the outside and rare in the middle with extra demi glace. I just asked for the salmon instead – it came overcooked.
Spoke with the waitress and manager. Both apologize and the manager took everything off the bill – but we would’ve rather had a great meal at a fair price. We tipped the waitress and left.
Unfortunately - Joe Theismann's fell short on this occasion.
I would suggest this restaurant for a fun night out if you like sports and are going with friends. Not a romantic atmosphere
We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review, Linda!
It was Valentine’s Day and super busy! Our waitress was excellent and the service was great! The food was delicious as usual, especially the pastrami appetizer! We had a wonderful time!
Hi Denise, we appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled to know you had an excellent time during your Valentine's Day and we hope to see you again soon.
Reserved the Valentines Day special and the food, wine, and price were fantastic. Being shoved into a small table crowded between two other loud couples...terrible. I’ve been there before and had no idea they had such a bad table and we were the unlucky couple stuck there. Really sad dinner given that seating!
Hi Jason, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are delighted to know you enjoyed our dishes and wine selection. We will be sharing the information provided with the team as we do hope see you again soon.
Great Valentine's dinner! Thank you.
Thank you for the kind words, Jacob!
Great service and good food. The new layout is great for mingling with people on a Friday/Saturday night.
Thank you for the kind words, Scott! We hope to see you again soon.
We dine at Theismann’s a lot, and decided to come for their special Valentine’s Day menu. It was excellent food, as always, and a great value. Our server was fantastic.
Thank you for the lovely words, Savannah! We look forward to hosting you again soon.
Probably would recommend an evening dining experience. We went for lunch and this place is known for its steak. We ordered prime rib and frankly, we've had better. I think it was definitely not something that should be ordered for lunch. Each of us compared notes and we have concluded that the pieces we were given were reheated leftovers from the previous night. The service was good and our waitress engaging.
We saw other orders walked by our table and they looked good. We were disappointed with what we ordered.
Burgers were terrific
Fish & Chips excellent
Crab Cake sandwich - not too good
Potato fries - trying hard but did not come off well on our 3 dinners
Hi Lou, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We will be sharing the information provided about our Crab Cake Sandwich and fries with team. We do hope to see you again soon.
Consistent, tasty, and good prices!
Thank you for the kind words, David! We hope to see you again soon.
Service was great, good food and drink! Love it here since the renovation and menu overhaul. Manager was visible and working hard!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us the kind review! We are happy to know you enjoyed your service and dishes during your time with us. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
our waitress did not know a lot of details regarding the menu. not a problems. but it was weird that she swiped our credit card at the table and handed it to me to add a tip. I don't like to do that in front of the wait staff.
Hi Nalin, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We will be sharing this information with the management team. Thank you again and we do hope you come in to give us another try.
Great cocktails and portion size
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review!
Friendly staff and remodelled bar area for an open atmosphere.
Thank you for the lovely words, Marianthe! We hope to see you again soon.
A wonderful refresh of an old favorite. New owners have pumped new blood into Theismann's with a complete renovation - now a real sports bar with plenty of TV's but great food & service, too...
Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are thrilled to hear you love our renovations just as much as we do and look forward to hosting you again soon.
Very good food, large portions, great value
Thank you for the review, Richard!
Service was very good. Food was tasty and brought out quickly. Enjoyable evening out thanks to the staff.
Thank you for the kind words, Mitch! We look forward to hosting you again soon.
This restaurant has not been the same since change in ownership. Went from great food to average restaurant

Great time! Good service food and drinks.
Thank you for the review, Justin!
Great place for food, drinks and to watch the game! Highly recommended!!!
Thank you for the kind words, William! We hope to see you again soon.
Second time there is a each time was perfect
Thank you for the lovely words!
The restaurant was beautiful. They brought out a dessert menu for my fiancé to pick out what he wanted for his birthday. The service was great and the server corrected a mistake that was made with my order. However, I was sad to see that the menu had changed and the prices were significantly raised. We may return for a date night but that’s about it.
Hi Tanisha, we appreciate you taking the time to leave us the review! We hope to see you again soon.

We take comments like this very seriously and have shared your feedback with both the management and culinary teams. Thank you again and we hope you’ll give us another chance to impress you.
JT's offers a diverse menu; comfortable booth seating; and well-prepared food. Our server, Aaron, was attentive and customer-friendly.
Thank you for the five star rating!
Went for Alexandria's restaurant week and they didn't want to honor the last day of the event. Crab dip hardly had any meat in it and the burger was so big I had to eat it with a fork (really messy because bun didn't hold two patties). Not enough ketchup was served for the huge portion size of fries that came with the meal.
Hi Cindy, Thank you for taking to the time to share your experience. We are sorry to hear that the Restaurant Week promotion was not honored and that the dishes you did have did not meet your expectations. We have shared your experience with the team and hope you’ll give us another chance to impress you. Thank you again.
We are regulars at Theismanns and typically enjoy every visit. However, this particular visit we were told after sitting down at our table, and having to ask a staff member, why it was so
There were six of us and everyone enjoyed their food. It was half off wine Wednesday, so we took advantage of that. We had fish tacos, fish and chips, salmon entree, and the grouper sandwich. Our server, David, happily switched out fries for other items and brought several kinds of hot sauce. We had asked for a quieter table and were accommodated, so thankfully our hard-of-hearing members could follow the conversation easily.
Hi Kate, thank you for taking the time and leaving us the kind words! We are thrilled to know we met and exceed your expectations during your time with us with our dishes and our service. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
The waiter was attentive and had a great personality.
Thank you for the kind words, Rodney! We hope to see you again soon.
Went for Restaurant week and to watch football.
Food was luke warm and nothing special. Server was mostly not there, didn't get a spoon with my soup nor fork for my dessert. Manager (checked on tables but not us) was the hardest worker besides Wilson the food runner.
This is my second time to Joe Theismann's. The atmosphere is great and I love seeing all the football paraphernalia from Joe's football days. It's a great atmosphere and a great place to enjoy a meal or watch the game from the bar. The menu is unique and the food is delicious. It's become one of my favorite places to celebrate special occasions.
Hi Glenn, thank you for taking the time and leaving us a review! We are delighted to know you had a wonderful and love our atmosphere just as much as we do. We look forward to hosting you again soon.
The staff were very friendly. Food was very tasteful and service was quick.
Thank you for the kind words, Mitch! We hope to see you again soon.
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!
