restaurant was 1/2 empty on a Saturday night. Apps were out fairly quickly. Simple meals took waayyy longer. So long we asked 3 times where our food was, as tables seated after us were already served. Again, restaurant was only half full at 7:30 on a Saturday night. Disappointing

Decent overall. Service was ok, but waitress did not know the beer menu at all- which is weird for a brew house. Food was OK, nothing special.

Food was excellent; portions were humongous, had to take to-go boxes. Service was mostly good; felt like he disappeared a few times; other co-workers helped him out; including a couple managers. Definitely recommend for Thanksgiving dinner if you don't want to cook.

Fun, neighborhood place that an Alexandria friend recommended. Really nice vibe and the price is more than reasonable by DC standards. Food was good quality. We went to the bar for about an hour afterwards to watch the World Series game and had a good time. Nice place.

Great buffalo wings. Wasn’t a big fan of the drink special ‘Sunset’ but then had a perfect whiskey and ginger.

Asked waiter about soy content and told about allergy. Ended up getting sick after eating regardless—sneaking suspicion that he never checked.

Occasion: Restaurant Week 2019\Husbands 32nd Birthday Brunch Date

I so enjoyed this place. I brought my husband here for a birthday brunch date and we both ordered from their Sat. Morning Brunch menu. They were transitioning brunch menus so we had 2 brunch menus to choose from (the regular and the new - I love lots of options!). The prices were considerably less on the new menu vs. regular so we couldn’t resist.

My husband got the smoked pit ham with breakfast potatoes and eggs. The menu said 2 eggs, but the portion looked more like 3 or 4! He enjoyed it!

I got the BLT (it has a twist in that it had a fried egg on top). I wish they had asked how I would like it cooked, because I would’ve preferred it fried hard, but it had come poached. I didn’t mind it too much, but for someone else it may have gotten sent back. I still thought it was yummy!

I also ordered a side of avocado toast ($3 extra - can’t beat it! Must’ve been that cheap due to it being he test menu), although I wouldn’t have had I know that my sandwich came with fries (it didn’t say on the menu). Wasn’t bothered by that either, but again, someone may have wanted the toast comped to their check OR sent back.

Taste-wise - everything was wonderful! We enjoyed everything and the service was pleasant, as well!

OH - how can I forget the $10 mimosa flight?!?! It was AMAZING! 4 diff. Types of flavored mimosas and I was in heaven for all of it. It advertised a blood orange mimosa, but they ran out and gave me a grapefruit one, instead, which I didn’t mind (but the couple behind us sent that back and instead got a double portion of mango). I’m sure it will be more expensive once it’s put on the regular menu but I LOVED it and you can’t beat that for $10. Each sampling was almost the same size as a reg. mimosa would have been so it was a wonderful deal.

We will def. be back here when we’re in town next time! :)

Local spot - been here many times - always at best just so/so - had guest in town wanted a Pub atmosphere
made a reservation - they lost it ? -terrible hostess/mgr ! and very young clueless assistant !
most unresponsive server - 15 min to get recognized - another 15 min to get drinks - had to wave hands just to get some attention - D/R was nearly empty and yet no service - what are they doing ?
will never return - many near by much better options ! - went to newly opened Oak down the block for a drink and to recover from this experience - what a warm welcome and friendly group - great !
So many chances to do good and this place just does not rise to the occasion - to bad !!

My girlfriend and I had never been to T.J. Stone's before, and when two family members came to town we thought we'd use the occasion to give it a try. We couldn't have been more pleased. The menu is varied, the service EXCELLENT, and the quality of the food also excellent. We felt the value for the price (moderate) was excellent and definitely plan to return.

TJ Stone's never disappoints us. The food has always been well prepared, and tasty. They have always been amenable to making substitutions for food allergies. There are great daily menu choices, and intersting and delicious cocktails.

I've been to TJ's 5 or 6 times and all the other times received 5 stars but something went wrong this past Sat. night. There were new servers and our server walked past us several times before my husband asked if we could get a drink. Then he brought one of the meals about 10 min. before the others. Also, it was hot out and it was too warm in the restaurant. Something seems to have changed there--hope next time it's back to 5 stars. My salmon was still very good.

I was there with friends to watch the US Women's World Cup. Lots of TVs, great selection of food BUT, only high-top tables where the televisions are. It would be a great place to catch sports on TV, and I would feel comfortable going there alone -- without lower seating, this will not be possible. I stood through most of the game. The stools are too high and extremely uncomfortable for someone less than 5'2" tall. This is advertised as a sports bar, unfortunately not everyone can enjoy sports there.

Good experience as usual except for the server who was completely inattentive. He spent more time talking to the hostess and other servers hanging around the hostess stand than even checking to see if we needed anything. Nearly 10 minutes to pick up the check when it was ready for pickup seconds after he dropped it off

Despite the missing salmon from my salad being a big disappointment, the food was delish. I am coming back for the buttermilk horseradish dressing. My friend's burger looked good and it was devoured, s apparently it was! Thanks fir the cheesecake.

Good time, food was good! However we ate at 7 pm and the decaf coffee rated like it had been made that morning. Everything else was great! Loved the Chesapeake Chilen and the doughnut for dessert

We chose T.J. Stones to celebrate my birthday on a Monday night. Service was on point, the food came out hot in an appropriate amount of time, and my mojito was perfectly crafted. We loved the half price burger menu, which my husband and daughter ordered from. I had the Chicken Chesapeake, which was pretty good, though it could have been a tad more flavorful. I was able to pick out a complimentary dessert for my birthday which was a nice surprise!!

We had 5 in our group. Two ordered the BBA and enjoyed it. One had a burger and the other two the salmon. The hamburger was reported to be good and the two with salmon really enjoyed that. I like the option of different sauses for the BBQ. The beer selection is great.

Wife asked if she could order the omelet with egg whites and was told yes. Then waitress returns and says they are out of egg whites. So no eggs in the kitchen? Very strange. Manager eventually made it right and offered to buy us dessert.
