Good spot. Hostess was fantastic and jumped in to help the wait staff throughout the night. The food was really good and we loved the grilled chicken sandwich with goat cheese. Overall great vibe and good spot to have a beer and watch a game.

Lena? was great with helping me with the reservations and making changes on that day. They were not able to by friend whose dog was barking inside which is understandable. Other than that, we’re always happy with the service.

Servers actively avoided eye contact with guests and would not come over when asked for assistance. Manager made excuses for poor service. The food was cold.

We were graciously seated two hours before our reservation time. Seated at a high top in the bar (our choice), we were greeted by the bartender / asst. mgr. Mike. He was friendly, attentive and his skills behind the bar are excellent. We spent time discussing craft cocktails ( a hobby of mine) and the various drafts available. Combining suggested food and beverage recommendations and the service given, we were completely satisfied with our experience.

Food was very good. The Brussels and Blue and Cobb Lettuce Wraps were definite highlights for me. Server was friendly. But, as happened during my visit the week before, there were pesky little gnats or fruit flies or something that were as attracted to the food as my guests snd I were. We were constantly swatting and had to pluck insects out of the food more than once which downgraded the ambience and the overall experience. I hope they can fix this issue because it is otherwise a great, convenient, and visit-worthy spot

Something was missing in the ambiance of the restaurant. We were trying to figure out what it was..
The one in Merrifield is best!

The food was outstanding. The experience was miserable. The service wasn’t just slow or busy which can be understandable. It was actually rude. I spent a lot of money on a nice meal for a special occasion and left really upset at the way we were treated.

Ate brunch with family last Sunday and service was good, limited breakfast menu and outdoor seating was nice. Had calamari for apps and Open Road Burger, All American breakfast, French Onion Burger and a Veggie Burger. All were tasty. Parking was fortunately free on Sunday in the Garage. Weekdays I am pretty sure around $7. Sportsbar themed resto and could be a great HH spot.

A hidden gem in Rosslyn that many people don't know about. Service is excellent and the food will never disappoint you. The only issue is finding parking - use the garage on N Lynn St its about a 2 minute walk.

Open Road Grill anchors the Rosslyn neighborhood with its presence. The high ceilings, vibrant ambiance, and Americana-themed artwork, flat screen TVs attract an upscale crowd night after night. Service is professional. Servers are knowledgeable about a menu with offerings ranging from an inventive take on Grilled Cheese to sophisticated Grilled Salmon. Bar scene adjacent to the dining area is hopping and fun. If you go on a Friday or Saturday, do make a reservation. Dress code is business casual. People watching is part of the draw. Bring friends or make new ones.

A great lunch! Had to find our way through scaffolding and construction, but it was worth it. Delicious food and a fun atmosphere. Wish there had also been more staff- but we were okay to hang out and go slowly, so we didn’t mind. Will be back!

We were there for a day-late Mother's Day dinner. Food was tasty and the service was good. Hard to get a feel for the noise level since we were there on a Monday night, but the atmosphere was friendly.

Love the outdoor dining area. The food is consistently good and the service is great. The only negative for this particular day was a constantly barking dog at the next table which was very annoying.

Get ready for some delicious Bloody Mary's and mimosas! We came for Sunday brunch just last week. Our food was pretty great - my dude got the huevos rancheros drool and they looked amazing. I got the all American breakfast and it definitely hit the spot. Best. Toast. Ever.

Our only complaint, but salvaged by the team, was an insanely rude and impersonal bartender who waited on the floor. Looordy, it could've just been a bad day, but she was not about being much of a gem. Like I said - front of house manager and seemingly GM couldn't have been more accommodating and checking in on the guests with candor and a good 'tude.

Ambiance was modern and bright - very cool interior. We didn't sit outside, but that looked like a chill spot too.

We were seated immediately, and our server was excellent. We both ordered burgers, and they were the best we’ve had in a long time. Fries were also great. Some construction plastic and poles took away from the setting, but otherwise it was a perfect quick dinner for us.
