    Po-boys & Caesar salads with a creole mustard base dressing. Specials everyday. Casual dining for the entire family. Great atmosphere. Secret dish not on the menu-Cajun Queen Salad.

    I was a great place. I got there a little late and went some other place to watch the Bengals as it was crowded -- a good thing and a sign of it being a great place. Love the menu!

    Everything here is great! I've been dining here since I moved to Va in the early 90's. Saturday brucjhand Sunday bruch is also awesome, especially the Bloody Mary's!

    This is hands down the best sit down, home-cooked style food you will come across in Alexandria. From the BBQ Ribs to the Drunken Pot Roast, there is something on the menu for everyone!

    Delicious (and incredibly low-priced) Southern food! Shrimp and sausage with grits is my favorite, and raw bar Wednesdays can't be beat!

    Virginia burger is as good as advertised, but ask for a jar of homemade remoulade on the side too. Your fries will thank you.

    Great selection of southern food along with some twists and liberties taken on some dishes. The crawfish po boy was excellent. Sad they dd not have mufaletta. Will come back soon!

    Great happy hour: $3 rails, $4 wines, $2-3 drafts, 1/2 off burgers, and $2 mini pulled pork sliders, oyster po' boys, and nachos.

    The blackened catfish and bread basket were tasty. The meal was less enjoyable because I felt quite rushed by the wait staff. Want to get your money and get you out of there the minute you sit down.

    Given the "state of the economy," Southside has extended their Happy Hour to 7:30 instead of 7pm. During HH their burgers are half price (Virginia Burger is AWEsome) and wings are $.35 each. Read more
