Went here for dinner with friends. Had the mussels to start. They were delicious, but even better, the dish came with a small loaf of sourdough bread to sop up the sauce. A real treat. Had the 50/50 burger for the main course. It is...More

We had a few drinks here after dinner elsewhere in Old Town. We loved the atmosphere - lots of dark colors, soft lights, great beer menu, friendly folks. Should do dinner here soon too :-)!

I travel to DC often and stay in Alexandria. There's so many restaurants to choose from but this one is my favorite (modern American food). Ordered cheese board and salmon on this trip, and creme brûlée for dessert. Everything was delicious. Service is always great.
