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.
Great good and great service.
This is my second time here and I’ve never felt so unwelcome in any place; it’s like I was being looked at like I don’t belong there from the moment I approached the hosts. Service was poor and wine was HORRIBLE tasting and over priced. Wings were greasy and soggy and tasted stale. I live in old town Alexandria and was looking for a place with a beautiful garden to dine and have drinks at. Such a disappointment as this is such a great location . I will never go back.
We were thrilled with our family outing yesterday. Wanted a fun yet GOOD dining experience and this was it!! They have a nice menu and cool cocktails along with large beer selections. The mussels (with 10 different sauces) were outstanding!!! You can dine in on two floors or outside on their patio with TVs, lights, and heaters. And it’s in Old Town Alexandria to walk it all off when your done. Highly recommend! And Destiny is a fabulous bartender. Great place for special occasions or just a drop in.
Good food only bad thing was the sitting arrangement they tried to sit us in a communal table. I’m not sure that is even legal during a pandemic. We have to ask for a manager to get another table. They had plenty of empty tables n they wanted us to sit I a table with another party. No thank you. Restaurants should not be allowed to do communal sitting during a pandemic. Also some tables were less that 3 feet apart from others
Amazing staff and Excellent food options. Loved the selection of beers as well, especially the IPAs :)
Great experience, friendly servers and excellent food
Food good. Alabama ball game watch party wasn’t really energetic.
The food was delicious. The service was great!
Always a great time here! The food is amazing and the service is always on point. Will definitely be back
Our waiter Hamilton was fantastic! My Dad had a great birthday! Thanks!
the live music was really loud. however the food was amazing.
Our daughter was in town from Austin, TX and we all enjoyed a night out at Augie’s. Loved the live music and great food! Our daughter declared Augie’s as her new favorite when she visits Old Town. Thanks to Hamilton, our waiter, too. Terrific!
wide open areas, great feel to the whole place. Food was perfect we had 1lb of mussels, brisket sandwich, french dip, pumpkin soup, hummus, and a burger. Beer was cold and local.
The Alabama watch party was not great at all. No one really seem into the game or even cared. I will not come again.
Excellent food and courteous staff. Also great COVID distancing and mitigation measures in place.
We ordered several appetizers and some meals. The food was amazing! Loved the Nashville Hot Chicken Tenders.
I come here regularly, and it's always a good experience. The cheese fries, the pretzels, and the French dip and cheese steak sandwiches are favorites. The on tap selection is among the best in the area. Often live music as well. Highly recommend.
