Taco Tuesday! Lots of unique special tacos. All we're very good. Nice draft beer selection and unbeatable bottles and specialty brew!

Great service. Some of the food was really good, some was just “ok”. The appetizer cheese tots are absolutely worth it!

The menus they provide to customers are super out of date & include various errors. There were five instances where we tried to order various drinks or food items from the menu only to have the server return and tell us it was an old item they no longer carried or the description was incorrect (size, bottle vs. draft etc.). We ordered a bottle of champagne and when we checked the bill the price they charged was more expensive than what was quoted on the menu due to errors/out of date menus. The pervasive issues with the menu were unprofessional and frankly a bit sneaky. The food and atmosphere of the restaurant was not nearly enough to make anyone from our party want to return.

This is my new favorite restaurant. The food was amazing! Portion size is average to large and reasonably priced. Everything was cooked perfectly! I was expecting a better lava cake for dessert but the center wasn’t even “lava” , it was solid. Other than the solid lava, everything else was perfect.

We came in hungry, excited about meeting friends who then called in sick, so we modified reservations as we arrived early. We wanted to like the food and service, but this was our most disappointing dining experience in a long, long time anywhere. First: fireplace is amazing. Second, guy who seated us was really friendly but he seemed to be the manager and didn't come around to check on the not-very-busy tables all night. Third, it was way too dark inside and the lighting needs adjusting. I have never had to use my phone to see a menu except in a lounge late at night. Fourth, noise from Tap Room needs to be tapped down, all puns intended. Cheering for teams is great but to hear the music blaring isn't so great. Overall: Our crabcakes, as we both had them with our meals, were bland and looked like frozen chicken patties thawed out. No flavor at all. Bun for my crabcake sandwich had not been toasted, warmed, buttered or anything at all, which I expect for an expensive style sandwich in a dinner meal setting. Fries were horrible, greasy tiny pieces that were limp, not crunchy and if we had not been so hungry I would have sent the whole plate back. Other member of our party had the surf and turf and the beef was not tasty, rubbery in texture, and the sides were decent. Our best dish were the tots appetizer, which was really good. Worst of all is a restaurant these days which has a policy of having "runners" who don't speak good English bringing food out, randomly, not knowing who ordered what, leaving abruptly, not asking if we need anything like ketchup, pepper, extra napkins, silverware, beers, etc. Please use your servers, and if you want to hire those who are non-native speakers who don't speak decent English, remember it diminishes the dining experience, restaurants! We don't go back, because we want decent service. The one guy who brought food out from the kitchen was wiping his forehead on his shirt as he handed us our food--gross!

My girlfriend and I tried this place on Saturday for the first time. We purposely chose this restaurant because of their participation in the Alexandria Restaurant Week. We both reside in Maryland, so there was quite a bit of distance to get to the restaurant. Unfortunately, we were highly disappointed in the food. The restaurant week menu was very undesirable. I ordered the BBQ platter. It literally looked like it was thrown together. The brussel sprouts looked disgusting. The presentation was awful. The food itself was slightly bland, especially the BBQ sauce. The cauliflower steak, not quite sure where the steak portion came from. Pretty sure it was just grilled. My friend ordered the cod, awful. It was supposed to be friend and wrapped in bacon. Instead it appeared to boiled and wrap in raw bacon. She had to return that dish, I'm not even sure what the accompaniments were. The one good thing was our service, the waiter was extremely nice and polite even after we returned our food. The dessert was good as well, we did the ice cream flight. Very good especially if they were homemade. But as good as it tasted, I doubt it was homemade. Also this is NOT a romantic restaurant or even an adult atmosphere. Very family friendly, children were screaming and crying the entire time. Walking around the tables and being very busy as children usually are. I highly doubt I visit this establishment again. I hope in the future if they participate in restaurant week they at least include the dishes that are normally on the menu. That the beauty of restaurant week in my opinion, being able to experience the restaurant at a discounted rate. Not being served undesirable meals that appear to be thrown together.

Cod was obviously frozen and over cooked. It came out dry and stringy. Waitress rang my card up for wrong table and had to do a void and then charge proper amount. This was a restaurant week deal to draw new business and failed miserably. I will not return to dine.

The evening was cold, but TJs had a beautiful fire going and provided seating directly in front. While the bar was packed, the HH libations as it turns out not on HH pricing. The food was delicious, plentiful, and well plated. All in all, wonderful place to reconnect with old friends!

Good brunch. I had two bloody Marys and the crab cake Benedict. Not a lot of hollandaise so probably for the best. Very nice attentive servicer who was good about letting my date and me have a long leisurely time there.
Sat by the fireplace which I always like.

We entered through the bar entrance as they were trying to keep the dining door closed due to weather. The food was good, not very many options but a lot of comfort food good for the colder days. We were seated at a table towards the front, I wasn't able to get a good idea of what the larger room looked like. Our order was delivered almost too fast - wasn't sure if it was because the food was prepared or what. It was a little worrisome but tasted good. Large beer selection but only a couple of options of wine by the glass. They do have an extensive wine by the bottle list.

Sitting next to the Fireplace on a really cold night was lovely! We started with some great beers from the extensive list and ordered the bisque and the chicken tenders. Both came out quick and were very good. Our waiter allowed us to enjoy drinks before ordering our next course as we were not in a hurry. I had the grouper which was good but could have used some type of sauce, jalapeno cream would have been nice. My husband had the steak and scallops. The steak was cooked a perfect medium rare as ordered but the scallops were way overdone! They were like rubber which was unfortunate. My son had a very tasty BBQ pork sandwich. We tried one of each of the desserts and enjoyed the strawberry charlotte - I don't believe it was made in house. The trio of ice creams were easy to share but nothing exciting.
Overall, it's a nice neighborhood spot with great beers and service so we will continue coming back.

TJ Stone's was a fantastic surprise as we looked for a close dining experience. Was originally going to try to dine at a chain restaurant, but weather conditions prompted me to look within a block of my hotel. The experience was fantastic from the moment we walked in with inviting customer service. Our waitress that I will affectionately refer to as "Harliquinn", made us feel super special! To top all the great attention, the food was fabulous. All three meals (beef brisket, salmon-corn risotto, and grilled meatloaf) were exceptional and had us talking about them the next day. Definitely will return next time in DC area.
