Great fish tacos, nice ambiance
Went for our sons birthday, the food was excellent, the service was quick and the manager working stopped by to check on us (shaved head).
A great experience. We ask for outdoor seating after making reservations. It was not available. Which was fine. We order an appetizer off the happy hour menu but when billed arrived we were told it was not available where we were sitting. It was not printed in menu.
I always enjoy Open Road. I’ve never had a bad meal at OR. Always great service. Always tasty food. No complaints!
Thank you for dining with us. We are so glad you enjoy our food and service. We look forward to hosting you again.
The best things here are the service, the wine, and the decent seating. The food could use a little upgrade, but the wine makes up for it.
Thank you for dining with us. We are so glad that you enjoy our service and our wine options. We appreciate your feedback on the food and we look forward to wowing you next time you join us.
It was so nice to sit down, eat good food and watch an NFL game. Because we moved out of town we don’t get to Open Road and Trio as much as we used to. I love the Peruvian chicken with great fries and salad. My husband had the open road burger and loved it. There was so much more I wanted to order and taste! I will just have to keep coming back every time I visit friends in NOVA.
Thank you for joining us on your visit to northern Virginia. We are so glad you got to try some of your favorites. We look forward to you dining with us again.
Great, heated, covered patio! Great food and service. This is a favorite!
Thank you for joining us. We are so glad you enjoyed the food and the service. We look forward to your next visit.
Great atmosphere and food!
Eat here often. Never disappointed. New menu item Steak Frites was the best I’ve ever had. I order that everywhere I can, and this was the best.
Thank you for joining us. We are so glad that you enjoyed the Steak Frite on your last visit. We look forward to hosting you again.
The food and service is always excellent! Highly recommend!
Thank you for joining us, Steve. We are happy that you enjoyed the service. We look forward to your next visit.

Thank you for joining us, Anne. We are so glad that you enjoyed your experience with us. We look forward to hosting you again.
Still one of my favorite restaurants. I hadn't been there since the start of covid. Probably one of the most dense spaces with indoor tables I have seen. It didn't bother us, but could bother others.
Thank you for joining us, Holly. We are so glad that you enjoyed your experience with us. We look forward to your next visit.
I realize it was a Sunday so the noise level was higher than normal due to all the disgusting NFL games on. We have noticed that since the pandemic restaurants have really raise their prices. All we had was one soda, the chicken bite appetizer and a French dip sandwich and it was $34 for lunch! With tip $41. My husband and I are not cheap and we make good money but eating out has now just gotten a little overpriced for my taste
Thank you so much for joining us. We appreciate your feedback and we'll be sure to pass it on to our team. We look forward to hosting you again.
Waitress staff was over stressed leading to slow service
Thank you for joining us, Thomas. We appreciate your feedback and we are so sorry to hear about the service. We would love the opportunity to learn more about your experience and we will be following up on private message. We look forward to hosting you again.
Great meal and ambience.
Thank you so much for joining us. We are so glad that you enjoyed the food and the ambiance. We look forward to hosting you again.
We sat inside due to the noise level outside with live music (which I don’t usually mind, but my friend has hearing difficulties). I found the food to be a little expensive for the portion size.
Thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad that we were able to accommodate you inside. Thank you for your feedback on the portion and pricing, we'll be sure to forward this to our chefs. We look forward to hosting you again!
Team lunch. Waiter, and food were great! This is our go to place for meetings.
Thank you for joining us again! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience. Certainly, join us again soon!
Open Road is a great place for lunch. The restaurant is spacious, and includes a large patio area, so there is plenty of space to practice social distancing. The menu is ample as well, with an impressive list of beers. The service is good as well. All in all a pleasant place for lunch, or dinner, for that matter.
Thank you for joining us! we are so glad that you enjoyed our menu selections and the atmosphere. We look forward to hosting you again.
Always a great time at open road
Thank you so much for joining us! We are so happy that you enjoyed your time. We look forward to hosting you again!
As much as I love the food and the friendly staff, unfortunately we were sat by a large party (about 15 people) that was not following the restaurants mask policy and were walking around without a mask on when they left the table. When we let management know they told us they hadn’t seen this behavior and argued with us rather than reprimand the group.
Great experience and ambiance, food was ok. Hit and miss on the food. More traditional bar food is best option.
Thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad that you enjoyed your experience and the ambiance. Thank you so much for your feedback on the food. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
Always a great experience at open road merrifield.
Thank you for joining us Charnria! We are so glad you have enjoyed your experience with us. We look forward to hosting you again!
The server/bartender wasn’t really attentive. It was hard to get his attention and he didn’t really come by to the table during the time my friend and I was there. I think overall he came by twice without us having to get his attention. He didn’t give us utensils even after we ordered. The food was good but the service didn’t match the food quality.
Hello, thank you so much for joining us. We are so glad that you enjoyed the food. However, we are sorry to hear about your experience with the service. We will be following up over private message for an opportunity to learn more.
Enjoyed sitting outside in the tent. Even when an evening thunderstorm passed though, we were comfortable. The ruby mule and lettuce wraps were delish! Busy venue but Covid precautions seemed in place.
Thank you for joining us for dinner on the Patio! We are happy that you enjoyed our Ruby Mule and Cobb Lettuce Wraps. We look forward to hosting you soon.

Irene, thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed the food, service, and felt safe joining us! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
The food was quite good, but there was an approximately 20-minute span from when the server brought our drinks and then happened to pass by our table again. During that time, we stared at our sodas which had no carbonation in them hoping we could flag her down to change them out for us. After we successfully got her attention and fixed the drink issue, it was another 10-15 minutes before we saw anyone again and finally got our food.
Again, We all enjoyed our food, but I’m just not a fan of waiting 30+ minutes to get it when the restaurant wasn’t even half full.
Good social distance in the outdoor dining, however there would be intermediate times of a heat breeze (thought it was from their overhead heat lamps). It was not. Hot and sticky the day we ate there. The fans were on but not all working. Food is very good in taste and good size portions.
Thank you so much for joining us and for your feedback! We are so glad you enjoyed the food and felt safe joining us! We will be sure to pass along your feedback regarding the fan. We hope to see you again soon!
Great experience! Food was delicious and felt comfortable with social distancing.
Thank you so much for joining us! We are happy to hear that you felt safe and enjoyed the food. We hope to see you again soon!
It was incredibly loud. And food was not as good as usual.
Tessa, thank you for joining us! We are so sorry to hear about your experience and will be following up over private message to learn more.
Was fantastic as always. I love the fish tacos, best I have found in the Northern VA area. My wife loves the burgers and the roadhouse wings. All goes well with the Tropic Thunder IPA. Will be back soon!
Colin, thank you so much for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed the fish tacos, burgers, wings, and Tropic Thunder IPA! We hope to see you again soon.
