We stopped in on our first evening in town for business meetings. It was incredibly loud and nearly empty. NOT sure why places insist on decibel levels that chase people away. A couple of people had a snack, otherwise, just drinks. Our server was lovely and helpful but I can do without the atmosphere. If you enjoy not hearing and... More

Waiter wanted us to order within 3 minutes of sitting. Not gonna happen. Waiting over 30 for a table, not looking at a menu by the bar when I'm visiting friends. Food is fine, lighting is terrible, can barely see what is written on the menu with the old style lighting over the booths on the far wall. Would I... More

Is the best deal around. $8 for a dozen fresh Virginia oysters. I've been three times. Consistent quality, excellent service, great soups, sandwiches, and wings. And the drinks are generous and reasonably priced. My favorite Tuesday night dining spot in northern Virginia.

We decided to sit outside for a late lunch as it was a nice fall day . The service was spotty at best . We hand the soft pretzel with cheese and it tasted like a pretzel cake more than a pretzel , the cheese sauce was very good though . I ordered the shrimp po' boy sandwich with tator... More

It's like a little slice of the beach on a warm night on the roof at Dogwood. Recommended. It's between Dogwood, Mad Fox and Spacebar for best place on Broad St.

Went out for dinner on a Friday night. Had a great steak salad! The steak was tender and the salad greens were better than usual. The dressing was good, and the items in the salad made it better than most steak salads I've had lately. The menu had a bit too many cajun spiced items for my taste on it.... More

So - there are two "Go To" places in Falls Church City - Mad Fox Brewery and Dogwood Tavern! I haven't been her in a while, but I figured I'd stop in for dinner. Wow! Was I impressed. They now have exterior seating out back. It used to be only a few chairs on the sidewalk outfront. But now there's... More

We just finished our meal at Dogwood. To start service was very slow and my beer was near flat (my wife's was fine). I ordered the Shrimp Po Boy. The bread was very fresh, however the other ingredients weren't great. The tomatoes were flaccid and the shrimp nothing to write home. My wife ordered the chicken sandwich, but it was... More

Went there recently with a bunch of girlfriends and we had a great time. The food is American with a Southern accent. The fried green tomatoes are fabulous. I had a cob salad and it was very good. Others were more traditional and got burgers that they were happy with. My friend who got the shrimp po-boy said it was... More
