Great restaurant! Delicious food, fun atmosphere, and excellent service.
Great service. Seated immediately and fun ambiance
Thank you for your rating! We look forward to your next visit!
Great food, really attentive wait staff.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your experience. Thank you for your review!
Our table was ready upon arrival, staff was friendly and food came out quickly and correctly.
Just Too loud. Needs barrier between bar and dining room.
Hello, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. You’ve provided some valuable information and shown us where we need to improve. I will certainly share this with the team. Kindest Regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)
Service started out a little slow but server became a little more responsive.
AMAZING HAPPY HOUR AND POPCORN. 100% WOULD COME BACK AGAIN.
Get the jambalaya! It is unique, with a light creamy sauce. The rice is also light, like jasmine rice, and there wasn’t too much of it. The dish had chicken, butterflied shrimp, and pieces of spicy, crispy sausage. The sausage was awesome!
They bring a basket of popcorn when you arrive and had live music, which started earlier than most places. That’s much appreciated!
Our server was very attentive and we were served quickly.
Great atmosphere, food, music and service. We will be back soon!
Hi Donna, Thanks for your glowing review of our Jambalaya! It is certainly a fall favorite. We are so happy that you enjoyed your dining experience and hope to host you again soon. Kindest Regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)
Great food and service!
Thanks so much for your rating!
I was there around 2 for lunch, and things were quiet. I really enjoyed the Ahi special sandwich! And the Brussel sprouts and blue are always good.
Thank you so much for your support! We look forward to hosting you again soon.
Very pleasant lunch, good food, casual dining atmosphere with TVs over the bar. Waiter was very attentive.
Great Happy Hour Place! My husband and I have started going there on Monday nights to take advantage of happy hour and the $3.00 off burger night. Good way to start the week!
Hi Great! Thank you so much for your rating. That does sound like a terrific way to beat the Monday blues! We look forward to hosting you again next week! Kindest Regards, Maggie (Brand + Community Manager)
Good place to hang outdoors watching games and grabbing a drink and food… a lot of kids interestingly so maybe not good for rowdy people more interested in a more sports casual atmosphere but fun for all ages enjoying themselves.
It was good. Fun vibe. Would go there again. Service was a bit slow but that is to be expected these days. Hostesses were great.
food was excellent. service was slow when trying to pay our check. everyone was working hard so maybe just due to smaller staff? overall great brunch and we'll be back
Food was great. Noise level was too high. Device was ok. Our waitress took a while to take our order and pick up our payment for the bill.
Perfect ending to movie and dinner night. Fish tacos were delicious...just enough kick to be interesting. Old Bay wings just right. Lively atmosphere but not overwhelming. Tables were well spaced for COVID protocol. Nice touch when manager stopped by. Wait staff attentive and efficient but not intrusive.
I enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant. Good food and excellent service. I was surprised that they even provide popcorn for free! Would definitely go back.
We've enjoyed our lunches each of the several times we've been there!
This was my first meal @ Open Road. I chose it because it's on Open Table and is conveniently located.
The service was great, as was the meal. I had the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I met a coworker there for lunch. We had a lengthy conversation and never felt rushed to order or pay the bill.
Should I return to Fairfax I'll certainly return to Open Road.
Just bad overall. Confusion about outdoor reservation- actually they do not take outdoor reservations online but don't tell you this until you arrive. Unclear policy about how to get a table outside- one staff said there's no way to get a table out on this night due to a group reservation, other staff and the manager suggested getting on a wait list. In the empty dining room, we were seated at a round table at the kitchen entrance. I suggested moving to an empty booth and the host tried to cram 6 of us at a 4 top with extra chairs on the ends until i moved a two-top to the end to seat us appropriately and leave room for food and drinks. Had to ask to order drinks, for paper menus for kids, for silver wear, water, for side plates, ect. Everything brought was just deposited at the end of the table for us to pass out ourselves.
Food was slow to come , was lukewarm and limp. Steaks were confused and we had to trade plates. Tiny pour of wine from the bar that was traded for a beer instead. It was just a meal to be endured and getting the check and leaving was the best part of this sad dining experience. Will not be back and I hope that this restaurant is one of the next covid casualties.
I love the chicken bites. They are crispy and not dry. I have never had a bad meal at Open Road. Atmosphere always great.
Deafeningly loud, slow service, no attention to detail, food was subpar.
Fabulous food, wonderful staff, great atmosphere. Always feel welcome and love the live music too.
First time. Solid place. Food was pretty good and service was fast!
Sat outside which was not CE. Service just ok.
Food was good. The service was not good. It took time to place our order. We had to ask for water and beverage refills. I had to ask for a container for my mussel shells. . The waiter was clearing the table while I was still eating. Most unpleasant.
Great place to meet and discuss business in a relaxed atmosphere!
Our office group arrived for our 4:30 reservations. It wasn’t that busy. Hostess was rude. Server was inattentive after initial order. Food and drinks came out SLOW. We didn’t want to stay much longer.
Excellent food, great ambience contributed to a fun evening and first step out since Covid!
Great music on the patio, excellent pizza and good libations!
Nice dinner. First time our son visited. He loved it!
Great menu with large portions of tasty food. Great drink selection.
This is our second time in 2 wks., and we’re coming from Maryland. The food was excellent and the service was pretty good also. Their Brussel Sprouts are the best I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to go back for more.
Half a dozen TV's on the outside patio, and I couldn't see the Nats game on any in my field of vision.
The service is good, menu offers a fair variety and the location is great.
This is only my second time, but the food is always wonderful! It’s a few steps above “bar food” but still holds that taste and experience. The burgers are charred perfectly and so flavorful and the fresh fries are perfect. Very nice staff. Will continue to bring friends here to have a good time!
Good was great, ambience was perfect!
Nice variety of items on menu. Open Road burger was very good. Iced Tea was also very good. Good service.
Open road still has the best grilled shrimp anywhere. The blackened salmon was excellent and their wines by the glass are great.
