Visited on a late-Sunday morning for brunch and had the chicken and waffles. They were delicious! Service is also great and the menu is reasonably priced. I would return to try other dishes.

We stopped for a quick drink and bite at the front porch of the Evening Star. A quirky place to spend some time. Their rosé slushy is delicious as was the finger food.

Great venue during restaurant week. I had the pork chop which was really great with mash potatoes. Wife had beef stew which was also excellent. If you are in Alexandria stop here. Expect to spend around $80 for 2 people.
