A local Alexandria restaurant since 1978. Recent renovations make this neighborhood spot comfortably elegant. Chef Jermaine Keys offers spectacular specials every lunch and dinner. Pair your meal with wine from our list of over 80 or beer from our list of over 100. Our brunch menu is available Saturday and Sunday. We also offer a private dining room for any occasion. Come enjoy a great meal with us!

Joe Theismann’s Restaurant, “Comfortable, Convenient, Classy & Established” is unique in character & difficult to categorize. For 35 years, it has melded the venues of fine dining, neighborhood grill & sports viewing. Implementing its original concept as a comfortable, friendly dining spot with great food & good value Joe Theismann’s offers what many restaurants don’t, character & personality. Patrons return for food quality, consistency & excellent staff. Although on the cutting edge in TV technology, the high score is for an exceptional dining experience. Not a chain/franchise, menu items are not stamped out, but prepared from scratch for seasonal freshness & customer preference. The range of offerings, Sea Bass in Tomato Basil Butter & Filet Mignon to hearty sandwiches, has survived the competition. The loyal following encompasses daily customers, tourists & local residents. Stop in. Celebrate an event, meet friends for lunch or just drop by for happy hour. Become a regular.

"Incredible dinner at Walker's Grille during their 3rd Anniversary! My guests ordered the special Anniversary menu with Prosciutto appetizer, Salmon with Bok Choy entree and chocolate pate' and Lemon Ricotta Cake for dessert. I had the Sweet Potato Gnocchi and spinach. Yummo! Their meals looked delightful and we all loved the food. Excellent service - Thanks Manoj.
Amazing night!!"
