My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner here, and it was fantastic - we got a private room with a cocktail area, and had a three course meal. The steak was delicious, and the staff was very friendly! Great place for big events!

Fun atmosphere, family pleaser. I've been here several times over the years as I travel to Alexandria from overseas. The fish tacos and reuben sandwich are both really good. My kids like the burger and grilled cheese, and my husband likes the beer.
