We really enjoyed ourselves. The seating was quick, great music, service was very good and timely, and the drinks were the delicious. It's a great place to go if you are in the Alexandria area. Q
Nice selections on the menu, beer was cold and service was great...
Outside is the place to be when the weather is good. Plenty of TVs for when games are on.
We sat on the patio and the atmosphere was perfect. I ordered the green curry mussels and they were very good. The service was really good. Highly recommend this place!
If you like shellfish especially mussels go for it. The Nduja was the best, IMO, as I enjoy spicy heat. The broth was great for dipping the homemade crostini. Nice beer selection to cool the palate.
Very accommodating to our party, great service, awesome place for dinner and drinks.
Outstanding mussels and wonderful service!
Food was excellent and our waiter was outstanding ... Attentive but not overbearing and very personable. Great meal!
Great food and great service hope this place stays open for a long time!
Best French Dip sandwich I’ve had. The risotto mussels were excellent as well. Less TVs outside would better preserve the unique outdoor ambience, however...they take away from the bistro lights & beer garden effect IMHO.
They were great at following CDC COVID-19 guidelines. I felt quite comfortable inside. Food and drink were good and great for the value.
The mussels are exceptional and the other items we ordered were average. The live music provided by Mike Richards was outstanding.
Outstanding food. Classics done right with just enough innovation to keep it fresh and welcoming all the time. We come for the mussels and are never disappointed. Great patio almost year round and always fun. They always take good care of us and give us a lot of value.
Never disappoints if you are craving mussels. The Classic mussels are best, in my opinion. The sauces for the fries are uber great. We usually split the ceasar salad and each have mussels and that is our dinner. Sooo very good!
I hear the pretzel is outstanding but I would have it if I could share it with 4 people instead of 2.
A great fun restaurant with great food and service. We sat at the bar area upstairs and our waitress was terrific.
Staff and food were great. Can’t wait to come back.
Augie’s is sooo great! The mussel are the best.
Food and desserts were great and service was great as well
Love this place! Great mussels, salads, sandwiches, craft cocktails and a long list of beer! Service has always been wonderful. Outdoor patio is fun on a nice evening. You will enjoy!
We were a total of 6 women in the upstairs area of this restaurant. The menu was fantastic. As well as the beer! Our server came off rude at first. My 76 year old Mother could not hear the man over the music. So he was a little short with her. Other than that, we loved everything we ordered. I would recommend this place for a casual evening out or lunch place with friends. We were all there bridal dress shopping for my daughter.
Five Stars. We appreciate the service! We will be back!
Loved the atmosphere, service, and food. Food didn’t get outstanding because the half smoke bun was super soggy but outside of that the food was amazing! Mussels were on point! Staff was cool, music was perfect...we’ll definitely be back.
Great dining experience
Delicious food and great service. Highly recommend.
Loved our meal on the patio with heaters! Great afternoon with mussels & frites of course, would definitely return. Good food and good service.
Evan was an excellent server. Food was delicious- Pesto mussels; Eastern Shore mussels; bourbon barrel raspberry stout; frites
Mario & Jordy tagged team and we’re especially attentive. Thx guys! 🙂
First time there, more casual than I had hoped, but food was outstanding and we were pleasantly surprised by live music.
Always my go-to and favorite restaurant. A selection of food for all, unparalleled consistency, you can NEVER go wrong with a pick from mussels, wings, fries, steak, etc. Amazing selection of rare and fun beers! The greatest restaurant in old town, hands down.
Love this place! Amazing food. Good wine list and a perfect atmosphere. It’s a regular for us. Bring a date, a friend, your dog... all welcome!
We didn't have the greatest experience to where we would go back. Service was slow. Wait staff was very nice, but we hardly got checked on, didn't get drink or water refilled. My husband's steak he described as awful. We won't go back,
Service was great, enjoyed the ambiance. Food was just ok
Best mussels, every time. The ‘Classic’ mussels are always spot on. Served hot and and fresh. Highly recommended!
Great outdoors and in - terrific food and staff; quickly becoming a regular go-to
Food was delicious! Our server was kind and attentive. Beer option is a hit or miss but still pretty good.
I would choose this place primarily for drinks and appetizers. For us, the food left a lot to be desired!
The Augies Mussels are delicious! Service is great every time
We had a dinner reservation but they had no table available. They sat the 2 of us at a long bar table for 8 in front of the bathroom. It was a horrible place to have dinner. Very disappointed. Didn’t appear that they were handling the reservations before the walk-in crowd. Food was good but service was blah. Maybe Saturday nights are not the time to go there.
Food was amazing! All of the mussel selections were so good! The restaurant was very noisy with a horrible music selection, but we still enjoyed our time. I can’t wait to revisit when the weather is nice to enjoy the garden. Will visit again!
Great burger and side salad was a misnomer. It could easily be an entree. Staff was great, did an outstanding job keeping everyone distanced and safe. A really nice find—I’d never been before but can definitely see my way back there.
Craig....Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. We are glad you enjoyed everything and hope to see you again soon.
