Joe Theismann's Restaurant
As always, JT's hits the spot, never disappointing. Great restaurant, tucked away from all the hustle and bustle.
The wine selection for the Valentine's menu was wonderful. The mushroom croquettes were to die for! My husband had the steak. He said that it was very well cooked. Everything was very nice and well worth it. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Wonderful Valentine’s menu! Great service and food
I had a tuna poke salad that was nothing more then chunks of tuna in heavy sesame oil on wilted lettuce. My husbands steak salad was equally un appetizing....how can you mess up a salad? It used to be a really good neighborhood spot. We won’t be going back!
Excellent seating. Convenient parking makes for an enjoyable experience
Outstanding ambience, service & food on a special ( & crowded) night. Congratulations to all the staff which made the night go flawlessly. Thanks
Food was excellent. Despite it being Valentine's Day, we were seated promptly at the time of our reservation. The food was excellent with large portions.
We enjoyed Valentines Day dinner as well as my fiancé’s birthday dinner here. It was excellent we went two nights in a row!
Valentine's Day special is not to be missed. Meal was excellent and wine pairing worked well. Very good value for the price.
Outstanding and personable
We really enjoyed it's
Food is very good. Good place to stop and have drinks and appetizers. We enjoy visiting on special occasions.
Always nice to return to JTs. Food is consistently done well and matched by excellent service.
Fun relaxed atmosphere
Great. The only complaint is the seats were ripped and needed repair. We sat in a booth.
Great food for herbivores and carnivores alike. Cheers like atmosphere. Eddie takes great care of his diners.
Our favorites have been taken off of the menu: lamp chops; scallops; halibut; green salad with feta; and other appetizers.
Menu selection is limited.
We have been going to Theismann’s for over 30 years. Disappointing the menu has changed. Service and location is great!
Met some old friends for dinner. Not a huge menu, but what is on there is really good. Also have a few healthier and gluten-free options.
Hostess had a bad attitude about seating me as a solo... Otherwise, I’ve had great experiences there.
Great place to have a nice dinner while watching the Super Bowl or any other sporting event! The service here is top-notch.
Change of menu was not appreciated, my wife wanted blacked salmon and we found it was no longer offered
Food was great. Service was slow. We had to ask for bread when the entree was delivered.
Joe Theismann's Restaurant is my go to spot near old town.
Good food, nice variety and great drinks
I am always pleased with Theismann's -it is my first "go to" when in Alexandria.
First time there and I was pleasantly surprised and how well-run it was. Great food great service great atmosphere.
Great service and food. I always like to come here for my birthday since they have a wonderful BOGO deal.
Have been going here for years. The new menu took away all the favorites like lasagna, chicken parmigiana, buffalo chicken sandwich, ahi tuna, and more and the prices jumped up. It took 4 asks to get a soda and our food took 45 minutes.
It was probably an off day for the kitchen staff
Service was good . Went during restaurant week had lunch portion was nice. Salmon was cooked to perfection
Each time I have been here the service and food has always been great. Will continue to come.
Getting a little well worn. Needs a facelift for 2019
Celebrated my Father’s 70th Birthday with my Mother. The food and drinks were wonderful and the service made it a memorable event.
Vibrant atmosphere but not noisy; excellent menu and food.
Very loud, even in the dining room past the bar. Entrees came right after the salad/ soup, we had them taken back to keep warm. The pasta with chicken was poor - over cooked pasta and very thick, heavy sauce. The salmon entree was good. We had enjoyed previous visits at Theismans, but not this time.
We are disappointed that our favorites have been removed from the menu. As an additional complaint is the removal of all reasonably priced side salads. We loved the greens and feta salad, but we would be happy for any decent side salad option under $10 that isn’t a Caesar. Our only option now is to order a big salad and split it and they are not as good even then.
My dining partner’s salmon was good, but it was not up the the standard of the previous salmon entree. My tuna salad was lacking flavor, so if we decide to return I will still be searching for something both healthy and tasty on the new menu.
We used to go about once a week, we may come back occasionally going forward to see if things have improved.
My first experience was very disappointing. The server seemed annoyed every time she was at our table and barely spoke. My scallops were over seasoned(very salty) but my mother in laws scallops were not seasoned at all (no sauce at all) and were bland. We ordered the chocolate lava cake and it tasty but warm at best. We will not be going back.
I have been going to Theismann's for over 25 years and have found the food and the services to be consistently good. With its location across from the Metro Station, it is a great meeting place for both commuters and tourist.
The food was very good, for the most part. The crab cake sliders were the best! My filet mignon was tender and cooked correctly. My date's salmon wasn't bad, but a little too dry. Prices were very good.
This was my second time at this restaurant and it was just ok. Food was not appealing and lacked flavor.
Shout out to Theismann's for their amazing gluten-free protocol for our family. 4 out of the 5 of us have celiac and they went above and beyond to make sure the order was placed correctly and kept separate from other food during preparation and serving. Substitutions were easy and everyone enjoyed their meals.
