Loved it the food is great and the atmosphere is awesome
Garden salad, salmon quite good. Rice which came with salmon was not - had a burned taste to it. Grilled asparagus cooked just right. Peanut butter pie was a bit gummy.
We are here on vacation for Thanksgiving and have reservations for Thanksgiving dinner here, so we thought we should check it out first. I ordered today’s special, which was fried oysters, fries, and broccoli, while my husband got the rueben with fries. It was all very good, and the chocolate chip bread pudding was awesome! Our waitress was very friendly, upbeat, and helpful.
There was not a lot of caring from the hostess when I noted the wet slightly gooey stuff on the bench next to me. Fortunately, the waitress quickly took care of the issue when we mentioned it to her.
The rest of the food and service were up to the usually excellent standards of this restaurant. The greens and feta is one of our favorite side salads anywhere.
Reliably great restaurant. Always great tasting food and friendly and efficient service. Everything from seafood to steaks, everything is fresh and expertly well prepared with delectable taste. The only downside, for me, is the high noise level, but you have to come here expecting that, since it's a sports bar.
This was my first visit to Theismann's. My sister and I had a wonderful time; great food, great service, and pleasant atmosphere. I'll definitely be going back.
Alex was a super waitress.....friendly and efficient. We had a great time....food was very tasty. Everyone enjoyed.
Great meal! Fantastic staff! Wonderful prices! Colleen was awesome and professional!
Enjoyed the atmosphere. However your booth seats are too close to the table and made for an uncomfortable dinner.
Restaurant separated from bar area and was clean, comfortable and felt relaxing. We enjoyed the complementary bread rolls. Buffalo chicken sandwiches were good. Children’s menu included salmon for our 11yr old, and burger for the 4yr old. We split the volcano cake and it was delicious. Service was friendly and timely. Overall a nice dining out experience.
Food was solid. Service was fine.
Peter was our server, my son had had him once before and first thing he said when we were seated, I was here before and Peter was terrific, We are both Food Industry professional, an Exec. Chef and Restaurant Manager. Food was good, service excellent. I will rec. friends and visitors to the DMV to ask for Peter when they make their reservations.
Crowded, noisy, but all else was good.
Good food. Friendly server. Nice atmosphere.
I had the crab cakes which was excellent! They even let me add an extra one as i wasn't sure if the 2 which the entree originally came with would be enough. But amazingly it was, so I was able to share the extra one with a friend.
Simply the Best 👍
Since the restaurant was sold, the new management has eliminated the bread basket and cut California Chicken out of the menu. I have seen nothing too exciting replacing them.
Very good food, great service. We were there around 8pm on a Friday night so it was very busy, but it was still fine for the kids. Great atmosphere. Made reservations on Open Table and got in right away.
Peter was awesome! He had excellent suggestions and was so kind to us! We will be back!
Never disappoints. The place is generally consistent which is a great attribute. Awesome go to spot for lunch and/or a nice meal.
Joe Theismann's Restaurant is one of my favorite restaurants in Northern Virginia. The food is always delicious. The wait staff is friendly and gracious. The ambiance is very comfortable. The only thing that would improve it for me would be that the lighting over the table was brighter for purpose of reading the menu.
Great casual bar atmosphere. Even though it was a "bar," it had GREAT healthy items. Loved the wedge salad and grilled chicken sandwich. We had a great waiter, too! Overall great!
Great place with neighborhood feel and very convenient to Metro
Peter was our server and he’s excellent! Also, the Hostess is always so kind & friendly!
Went there for dinner had excellent Prime Rib. Went there for Brunch very good food again. Went there again for Dinner very good. Loved the Pretzel bread with beer cheese dip. It is a busy place and not a quite place.....Sports bar theme yet a nice restaurant feel. This will be a regular place for us when in Old Alexandria, Virginia.
Although some of my favorites are gone from the menu, the other changes new management have made maintain the JT's brand. Good food at reasonable prices. Love that there is parking in Old Town too. (not many vegetarian things on the menu).
We have been to the restaurant several times. The food is very good and a great value. On this occasion it seemed like the kitchen and bar were in reverse! Our waiter was trying but the slowness was not his fault. My companions said they were unlikely to return.
Always a good value ... Great ambiance... great
Great place to see the football game. Great atmosphere.
The main dining room is somewhat loud with a TV and sports channel on, but we were able to sit outside, where the atmosphere was calmer. The heating units overhead kept us toasty on that Autumn Saturday. The servers are very friendly. The food is solidly good. I had a delicious French Onion soup, an awesome Buffalo chicken sandwich and fries.u husband had the Ahi tuna which was served with vegetables and rice. Portions are good without being overly big. There is a good selection of bar drinks and cocktails, too. Be aware that the restaurant is about a 15-minute walk from Hoffman AMC theatres, so you may want to drive if the weather is bad or if you don't want to walk much. Overall I would recommend this restaurant.
Very good food which came promptly and friendly service without feeling rushed.
I returned to my hometown for the Washington vs. Dallas game. I had enjoyed dining here with my girlfriends twice and thought it would be great to share with my family. We were certainly pleased! Everyone loved their meal! Thanks! See ya next time!
Always reliable. Never a bad meal. Have been there many times over many years.
Met our group of Chiefs fans to watch Sunday night football. They seated my husband and me even though no one else In our party was there. We had one guest who was 45 minutes late. Through all the comings and goings the server was very accommodating with ofood and beverage ordering and service, willing to split the checks and made sure the channel on our TV was the game we wanted. Food was great and there were healthy options as well as bar fare. A great evening!
Made a reservation for a booth by a tv to watch the game. We were seated at a perfect spot to watch the game. Service was slow at first. Noticed the server was a little weeded so understandable. As the meal went on she was more attentive. The food was good. We tried the appetizer special, loaded crab fries. They were delicious!
Food is very good. Usually good service but waited 40 minutes for bread and never received soup. No one checked had to ask another server. In fairness our server had a table of ten in another room but it wasn’t a very good birthday dinner.
The place is always hopping since it is right off of the King Street Metro stop, which makes it very convenient! The food is good and the prices are reasonable. Only thing is that once we paid our bill the waiter completely ignored us. No refills on water, tea... It was not like they were busy and had other folks waiting on a table. (I was a waitress so I am very conscience about people waiting since that is money for the staff)
We used to go here for business lunch all the time. I tried it a couple of times since management changed, as well as menu and it is not the same variety or quality of food any more unfortunately. It is sad to see a great restaurant to make changes that impacts their clients negatively.
truely one of the best blackened seafood platters I have ever eaten. incredible.
