Our son and daughter in law took us there a few years back and I found it to be a reasonable priced restaurant with very good food. I have now used it for company luncheons.

This one of our favorites. The food is great and it simply a comfy place to go. You will find that this is mostly frequented by locals.

Decided to go to Overwood for a birthday brunch. The staff accommodated a group of 14 people easily, plus two very young children. Our waiter was very attentive, and the food was great! Looking forward to going back and trying out the rest of their menu!

I was a little skeptical at first when I arrived realizing my group was the only blacks in the enitre resturant. But once we were seated we felt great and the food was even better. I'll definitely be back

Friendly staff, great food, choices for all tastes, and very clean facilities. In my opinion, the best restaurant in Old Alexandria, VA.

Went there for my birthday, nothing too big, all we wanted was decent service and it was bad. Waiter forgot about our appetizer and brought it 3 minutes before our main course. The chips were all small fragments from the bottom of the bag. Specifically asked for a single candle in my dessert and he forgot! Terrible

Had dinner with girlfriends, for one of our girlfriends birthday. They had great wine, great dishes.
The waiter was awsome, super nice and friendly.

We had dinner at Overwood recently and really enjoyed it. The menu has a wide variety and you can't beat the price. They also have a good beer and wine selection. We've been in the area for a few years and have been looking for a place just like Overwood, somewhere that is affordable, good food and great atmosphere. Definitely will be going back often.

We had a wonderful meal and was able to get a booth on such a busy night (we did have a 9:15pm reservation). We were right next to the kitchen and it could be very loud at times, but it did not really interfere with the night.

I ordered a glass of wine first. He left & came back for food orders. My BF & I each ordered an app and a specialty entree. Time went, no wine but the apps come out. I ordered calamari, but over half the plate was fried onions w/ a tiny amt of the thickest marinara. I separated & placed all the onions on a side plate and was left w/ a very small amount of un-crispy calamari. Asked the waiter for a diff sauce. He never brought it so I used the sauce from my BF's app. He removed the half eaten apps & still no wine. I asked again & he brought it out right before dinner. I don't have space to describe how mediocre the food was but all the sides were cold and my BF's steak was overcooked. He doesn't like to complain so he wouldn't send it back.

I had much higher expectations for visiting Overwood my first time. I thought the ambience would be a little more elegant/romantic. I thought the presentation of the food would be a little more like fine dining. I thought the meme was going to be a little more excentric. It wasn't any of those things. It was very basic America dining. Kinda like a typical America steak house. However, it was good and the service was pretty good. Great wine. Go for a casual dinner or with friends. Have fun!!!

We went there for Valentine's Day. It looked like they had brought on extra staff to handle the anticipated rush but our waiter was not particularly knowledgeable about the menu. Even so we had a nice if not exceptional dinner and can see this as a good choice for groups especially when we have kids with us. The menu offers enough variety for almost anyone to find something to choose from.

Overwood offers a menu of standard beef, pork, chicken, and seafood prepared in a simpler manner but very well. If you want a tasty meal at a reasonable price in Old Towne Alexandria, Overwood is a good choice.

A group of us went on Valentine's Day and had a really nice time. Great selection of wine and starting with the sweet potato gnocchi is a must. Good variety on the menu. Only catch is that if you want bread you have to ask for it.
