A most charming dining spot, the Old Angler's Inn has been immortalized in countless Washington D.C. novels as a romantic winter getaway, sitting before the fireplace and perusing the menu. It is equally glorious in the summer when the main action moves to the incomparable terrace.

We arrived on a very cold night. The heat in the restaurant was turned way up. It was uncomfortably warm. Overall the food was very good. We had dinner for four for $140. I chose a salad for $14.00 along with my regular dinner. I never should have picked such an expensive salad. I should have split one with my husband. The final bill was more than I expected.

There is clearly a change in kitchen, the entrees were incredible, very much a material improvement over prior recent visits.

We used a Living Social deal, which was a great bargain. The staff was attentive and not fussy. The menu was extensive enough to have several good choices for my dining partner and me, but not so long that it was overwhelming. My partner had the scallops. He was disappointed in the vegetable puree they came with. I had the cioppino - delicious, spicy, five big shrimp, half a dozen tiny scallops, and nine mussels. I couldn't finish it.

Have dined outdoors several times but this was the first winter indoor experience. It was a blustery day but inside the fire was roaring and the logs crackling. The menu offered many comfort, take the chill off selections. We all chose something different to eat and we all agreed we made excellent choices. We were very pleased with the service provided by our happy waiter. All in all, a great way to enjoy lunch with friends on a winters day.

Went for a special dinner to celebrate a friend's birthday and New Year's Eve. They weren't quite prepared for the night. Service was definitely not worth the 100 a person we paid. Will be a while before we give this place another try. Food was good was the only saving grace or we would have probably left after the first course.

We went there for New Years Eve dinner, it was a fixed price menu with 4 entrees. You would think with that few choices they would nail it, but they didn't. The food was cold, overcooked, and bland, except for the over salted Haddock. The server staff was very rude. They were understaffed so everything was extremely slow, and we didn't get anywhere close to the right amount of attention to the table. We spent over $570 for the four of us and would have been better served by getting a really nice bottle of wine and ordering in Chinese. I won't be going back.

This is a restaurant in an old inn, just across River Rd. from the Potomac River and Great Falls Park trails. Great place to eat after a long cold-weather hike. Cozy fireplace and romantic setting. We dined for lunch, which we prefer as cheaper and more laid back relative to dinner here. The salmon BLT was delicious, as was croque madame sandwich.
