Last minute plan, so I made a reservation at something nearby which was Barrel and Bushel. Service was very nice, and the food was pretty good - you know, standard bar fare. I ordered the spicy fried chicken sliders - there good, but also ordered a “grilled” romaine salad. I thought this would be more like a grilled Cesar salad, but the dressing was bizarre - can’t recommend it. Other than that I would definitely go again.

Our server was ver good. The decor very interesting and I wish I had more time to really explore it. Otherwise, the food and menu were good but not out of the ordinary for the area.

The website says they serve Brunch but in fact don’t because of Covid. I get that. But, they have a hard stop for breakfast at 11 and you can’t order lunch until then. Absolutely no crossover. 2 of us wanted breakfast, one lunch so we we were stuck. Not impressed with the inflexibility nor the way it was presented.

COLD! I needed to wear a jacket, I think there was an issue with the HVAC system. Food was OK, French fries very greasy. Maybe this would have been a better place for drinks only.

Have enjoyed this restaurant numerous times both before and after a movie at the Tysons Cinema. Nice, contemporary atmosphere, service was great and the menu offers a great deal of variety. Last visit was Saturday lunch and some breakfast items (avocado toast with the egg on top) were an option. Very good Frito pie was shared as an appetizer. Pork sliders judged " delicious".

Outdoor dining available, but too windy/cool for us. Social distancing and masking observed.

We came to B&B for a low key birthday celebration. The service was excellent. The food was good. We had a pleasant time. We usually enjoy B&B’s happy hour. They have great drinks and appetizers and the patio is wonderful on a nice day!

1st off they close at 10pm and I made 9pm reservations. Not on purpose but no choice but still think an hour isn't hateful timing. 1st time there and it was to celebrate my wife's birthday. On open table when I made the reservation it asked me if it was for any particular reason. I put wife's birthday. So 99% of time when it's been to celebrate a special occasion the establishment has done something to acknowledge this and add to our over all experience. But not here, it's fine if you don't but then why ask it in your reservation set up? We ordered 2 starters, two entrees and 4 drinks ( 2 beers & 2 cocktails). Once again special occasion. Considering this was $140 meal not counting gratuity I have to say over all value for food, beverage and ambience was not the best. Once again we started an hour prior to close because we both had to work and couldn't come earlier. The waiter was efficient at keeping it on track for closing, I get it. I paid as soon as check placed out. He collected final check so he can leave on time Once again I get it.. wife was trying to finish her food and honestly the over priced cocktail and it was 10 past 10 at this point. So when the manager came over I had half thought it be to finally wish her happy birthday but no it was to curtly say "we need to move this along it's closing time" guess spending almost $200 with gratuity for an hours time, over priced cocktails (beer was $14 a pint) we shouldn't keep them waiting at all. Once I again I understand closing time.. We happen to run our own business and our avg ticket is $12 (dessert shop). And you know what we only exist if clients patronage our shop. You spend $12 with me that helps me keep my doors open. I would never hurry a guest out a few minutes past closing.

I was disappointed by B&B. I got the crab omelet and my fiancé got the spinach mushroom scramble. My omelet was okay nothing fancy. However, his scramble was not good - very watery. For the high price, the food is so so. When COVID cools off, we’ll likely try again because it seems the menu is smaller to accommodate for COVID.

We had another excellent dining experience at B&B. The atmosphere was casual and while every table was occupied, the restaurant took care to maintain a healthy environment. Finally, the food was outstanding as always and the service was friendly and gave us and our friends the space to socialize without pressure.

Love this place and been here a few times. This latest visit our waiter messed up an order and only came to our table a couple times to check on us. There was a party pretty close to us that was extremely loud which made it hard to hear a regular conversation.

I was surprised that the host sat us down at the table next to a large group (about 15-20 people) during covid-19. The area at the back was all empty.

Really great French fries. Decent burger. The kitchen seemed to struggle with little things. Sauce on the hot chicken sliders tasted like strait vinegar. Grilled cheese was soggy, the tomato soup tasted like the tomatoes hadn’t cooked down so it tasted a bit like the can. Even though I knew they didn’t just open a can. Service was amazing, the restaurant was so cool - I wanted to love it, but the food was just a disappointment.

The waiter was impersonal and attempted to rush us through our meal. The food was okay, and the drinks weren’t anything special. Overall you could do worse than a quick meal here, but I won’t be going back.

Great burger although “romaine style” should wrap the burger, not just be a torn leaf on the bottom and top. Way to hard to pick up. Excellent fries, hot and crisp. Loved the service and following of all rules.

I went there for my sister's 21st birthday. I just wish I wouldn't have. Service wasn't slow or anything, but it was just bad. Food quality was bad that I could have gotten better food from the food court above. The server was clueless about how to serve things, brings plates no silverware, almost was bringing the birthday "cake" while my sister was in the bathroom..., which wasn't even a birthday "cake", like what a joke!. They gave her a Happy Birthday written plate (Thanks god), but as a cake she has gotten a cookie ice cream sandwich with wrapping paper on... I have given my years to restaurants, it's such disappointment to see all this, even worse I still had to tip good, as I always do, because I have worked as a server for so many years.
