    This is by far our favorite NoVa restaurant. Great great food. Start w/spinach artichoke dip, then house salad, small round rolls, ribs or fil-a (both are awesome). Service is always awesome.

    Fantastic staff!!!! My friend ordered a steak he thought he wanted (the rib eye)....when it wasn't really what he was craving....they brought him a different one (the filet). He was SO happy :)

    Everything! jambalaya pasta is amazing! The sautéed chicken breast sounds unremarkable but it's amazing! Steaks are great! Bread is awesome! Tex mex egg rolls! Spinach and artichoke dip is even great!

    Consistently good food and friendly service. My favorite thing is the bread basket...they have bread that tastes like a donut. Gotta love that.

    I read these tips before going and I'm so glad I did - got the drunken rib eye with a glass of root beer. So delicious!

    Great selection of in-house microbrews, food is always high quality and well prepared, and the team-based service has never let me down. Slightly expensive but well worth it.

    I love the salmon and the ribs at this place. The bartenders here are great and sociable. If you never been here before, you must make plans. The food is awesome.

    Try the beer sampler for a great kick start to the seasons best offerings. The beignets and Short Smoked Salmon Salad are heavenly. Best for groups of 6 or less.

    *BEST* root beer I've ever had in my life! Maybe it's just psychosomatic, but I swear it helps get rid of migraines. I also recommend their cheddar cheeseburger & the chocolate waffle. Mmm, mmm!

    Stopped in for a burger and a beer. Service was surprisingly quick despite how massively crowded they were.

    If you're a vegetarian, there are portobello fajitas. And salad. Not really ideal, but you can chug a few beers and/or glasses if wine and enjoy the heck out of their fresh bread and guacamole.

    I don't know why, but I am in love with the roast chicken salad. It's probably more calories than ribs or burgers, but it's damn good.
  • Akshay A.
    The bread. Good god, the bread. Other food is good, but I can fill my stomach up just on that warm, delicious bread.

    Ask your server if they have the filet tips with penne pasta in citrus sauce...delicious! Not on the dinner menu but they usually have some left over from lunch if you ask. =)

    For a lighter lunch I get a chop house salad with chicken. Not bad for lunch meetings/lighter fare.

    The root beer is actually fantastic. Sweet upfront but with a classic root beer finish. Probably the most redeeming quality of the whole restaurant!

    Despite the description, this place does not really have vegetarian food. Salads, yes. Pasta Primavera, the go to token vegetarian option, yes. The veggie burger that's shown on the menu? Nope.
