  • We went for lunch during a day of touring around Old Town. My wife had fish and chips, and I had a prime rib and brie sandwich. Both were really good. Decent selection of beers with some local choices...  more »
  • I really enjoyed the historical nature of Gadsby's, but the food was great too. The old-fashioned menu items were a treat and very well prepared.  more »
  • We had a tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer our questions. We were happy to support this establishment and felt the admission cost was fair.  more »

  • Food was good. Servers were nice. But do not show up prior to opening. They opened at 1130 and had nearly 30 people waiting to be seated at 1125, yet refused to seat anyone. (We were not expecting to be served, just not to be crammed in a very small space.) They said they were still setting up, but we could hear them just joking and laughing around behind the bar area.
  • The servers and staff are great. The food is good. The history and ambiance is awesome. The local people who also come to dine are not very tolerant of children and babies. The staff accommodate you kindly, but some people give you dirty looks and comments if your kids make a peep. It's not a super expensive restaurant, but some people who dine here are snooty. I won't bring my family again​.
  • Great history. Beautiful rooms. Love the new arrangement with self-guided tours and longer guided tours. Something for everyone!
  • A very nice historical restaurant. Our server was very friendly and great with our kids. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the french onion soup.
  • Cool atmosphere. Food is not my style but family enjoyed it!

Where to stay in Alexandria

Old Town boasts a number of high-end hotels that provide easy walking access to some of Alexandria's most popular restaurants, bars, and attractions. However, these are not typically budget-friendly; those looking to save a few dollars should consider a hotel or motel located on Jefferson Davis Highway. Though not technically within the city boundaries, these accommodations are considerably cheaper and often within walking distance of the metro. Alexandria is also home to a number of charming bed and breakfasts, several of which are located inside historical buildings.
