“Great quick lunch right by the Metro”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

After settling in at our lodging, we wanted to find a quick lunch at some place close by. Our waitress was very efficient and even suggested that we split an entree, which was good advice. She told us where to go to get half price Senior Metro passes, which saved us the price of the meal.

This restaurant is next to the Embassy Suites where we were staying and we ended up eating here twice. The first time was for dinner and the food was very good and the waitress was very attentive. We went back for lunch and I'm not sure if we didn't order the right things or what, but none of our party of 4 particularly liked what they got. And the service wasn't as good. So a little hit or miss here but I will give them another shot if I'm in the area again.

“Great Memories”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

I decided to go to check out Joe Theismann's Restaurant with a friend because there was a coupon in my 2014 Entertainment Booklet, I was surprised to fine a parking spot right out front which was amazing since its right across the street from King Street metro. We went on a Friday night and waited maybe 10 min for a table. The meal was hot and tasty...love the duck egg rolls and the drinks were outstanding. But it is on the expensive side, just for the two of us our bill was $85. Everything was wonderful and we decided to go again the following Friday but only order a meal and nothing else.

“Good Restaurant/Sports Bar”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

We had a nice early dinner since it was Final Four night and the place was expected to get real busy. The was a good mix of land and seafood. My wife had crab cakes and I had Rock Fish. Each was prepared well.

Great stop on a late return to hotel. Very convenient if Staying at Hilton or Embassy Suites in Old Town Alexandria. Above average bar food, lots of sports theme no doubt in honor of namesake... "Broadway" Joe Thiesmann.
