    This was my first visit. The service was great. The food was great. It was a little loud because we were seated right outside of a private room with the doors open. Otherwise I’d definitely come back.

    Really fun place for dinner. Great atmosphere and accomodations for larger groups. My salmon burger was a bit dry (and came with tomatoes after I asked for none - yuck!) but the service was fantastic and more than compensated for that. We would definitely return.

    Sunday brunch. Great service. Loved the ambience. Restored grain and feed warehouse. Decor incorporates historical aspects of the building with comfortable modern updates. We had a seat by the window overlooking the waterfront. Food was delicious. Crab cake egg Benedict and chilaquiles

    Our server was lovely and the surroundings/view was terrific. The food was marginal…oily chips, soggy salad. The burger was good. I assuming because we were there early for dinner and the food service wasn’t up and running for dinner yet…

    Great ambience . I had the shrimp tacos which were very good and my friend had the shrimp and grits and the poutine which she said was only ok. Drinks were a bit pricey for the amount they serve. I had a mimosa and it came out in a 4-6 oz glass for $12..yikes. Our waitress was great and made sure to check in with us periodically, friendly and knew the menu well. If you are looking for a quiet meal this may not be the best place for you. As most of the restaurant had a lot of background noise and could make it hard to hear. Overall we enjoyed eating here.

    Only typical bar food, dull unimaginative menu, huge portions, not great quality in spite of its pretension to have “fresh local flavors and ingredients, robust flavors“. wouldn’t return.

    We had a reservation at 715p, was told we needed to wait about 10 minutes for the server to catch up, turned out to be about 15+ minutes after our reservation time, only because I went up and asked when we would be seated after waiting the already 15+ minutes. I wouldn’t really mind, however, we had a baby with us. Appetizers came out before the drinks. Food is decent, but on the heavy side. A miss were the blackened fish tacos, not very blackened and fishy. The French dip is always good though. It was my birthday, I guess they don’t do anything special. Service was good. Ambiance is a vibe.

    I started with orange-cranberry muffins and they were great. Sweet with a nice hit of tart from the cranberries. The fried green tomatoes were ok; nothing to write home about. The steak quasadilla was super-greasy. The ahi tuna salad was fresh but the dressing fell flat. Overall, the meal was a C-

    We have experienced this resistant before and left abundantly impressed. We had a table and a bill of about $284. This visit was much different, we came hungry and expecting and we left disappointed. On a two top one of our meals had to be sent back twice. We settled on sharing a plate since one of the signature items couldn’t be cooked to the desired temperature. This of a greater restaurant than this meal represents, we just had a freshman cook. Nevertheless we departed and I made bruschetta with balsamic glaze, since we went home hungry🤔.

    The food was wonderful, our setting amazing. The ambiance can’t be beat. One of our favorite places in Old Town. However as soon as our server dropped our menus off saying “I’ll give you some time” - no drink order, no introduction, she left and went to Starbucks for 20 minutes returning with her fresh drink in her hands and a wet jacket. The receipts showed the math for a tip completed for us but it was $5 over the stated percentage. When we pointed this out to the manager thinking they had a glitch working against their serving staff he interrupted and said “it’s because your ordered wine”. This is one of our favorite places but what a terrible experience after a long day of travel. Unfortunate.

    Nice side view of the river if seated out in alley. But prices are insane..:$24 for a French dip sandwich with possibly 2 oz of beef and a side of so-so fries. I’m happy to pay net $30 for a sandwich…if it is amazing. This was fine.

    We had a greta time with a friend we'd not seen in years. We were promptly seated and our server was great. The food was, as always, incredible. The time between the arrival of our appetizers and entrees was relatively short but it was all so good! We'll keep coming back for special occasions.

    This location is an Alexandria standard. Hang out of many locals, I’m no different. if I ever have a friend in town, I’m taking them here because it’s always consistent and friendly. I brought a client here this weekend, and she fell in love just like the rest of us. I maintained the best burger in the city.
