This was our first visit to restaurant. Staff were friendly. The food was scrumptious and delivered quickly. Noise level was a bit high for us, but we look forward to coming back to check out more menu items. (So many appealing items on the menu!)

Nice place for a small group of 6 to dine outside while covered - server was very nice and food came out timely and as expected. Cons - The noise level was a bit louder and hard to have conversations with the group of 6. The fans were running the whole time on a cooler rainy day which made us a little chilly. Pros - I am sure the burgers were wonderful but I was being good and had the tuna which was very healthy and fresh. Our sever was very good and the bathrooms are quite nice! I wish I could have had a beer but it was lunchtime so I had to stay dry!

Came for Mother’s Day and while we LOVE this restaurant normally, this particular Sunday was not good at all. Service was slow, probably understaffed, the food didn’t come with the correct sauce (& no one brought it out even when asked). It was just a dismal visit at a place we always have previously had excellent times.

We were so glad to be back! Open Road had been one of our favorite restaurants prior to the pandemic and while we enjoyed takeout over the past year, we were so glad to share brunch as a family at the restaurant again. Food was fabulous as always and wonderful to see the staff!

We are new to the Open Road, but big fans. The food was outstanding, we had the lettuce wraps, onion rings, chicken and steak salads and a wonderful dessert called Ice Cream Cake. The bourbon smash was also a highlight

Server was so observant and thoughtful he brought soda water when I dropped a fork full of mac n cheese on my daughter's coat. Mac n cheese was superb-- some of tye best I have had-- and when my daughter found the kids marina spicy the server brought her buttered noodles instead which she loved. Brussels sprouts without bacon were great; I loved my fish tacos and hubby enjoyed his French dip. Not a huge menu but what they had was excellent.

Normally a great restaurant. Our service was very slow tonight. Was only able to order one beer from the server for our entire meal/experience. Manager apologized but had very limited insight into the fact that we had no drinks during dinner!

Due to the pandemic we do not eat out any more although there was a time when eating out was one our favorite pastimes. We really enjoy having outdoor dining opportunities with good food and service. Thanks for being there for us 🤗.

Dylan was an awesome server. We had a reservation requesting outside, but it was full, so that was disappointing but we loved the food and service inside, regardless. We were there just having dinner (no alcohol) and catching up, so we were there for quite a while, but Dylan was attentive and not pushy at all. The food is also excellent. Will definitely be back!

I used to love this neighborhood bar, but the food has become like most other greasy pub grub and the once friendly service has become inattentive and icy. With so many great restaurants in the DMV to check out, I won’t be wasting any more nights out on this mediocre experience.
