Alexandria VA information help....

We are staying 2 nights at the Gaylord National, Potomac River over the holidays. As I was told there aren't that, if at all, good restaurants around the Gaylord to rave about. I also hard the Gaylord restaurants are very pricey and not worth it.

I'd love to go to Alexandria, Old Town, to dine... or grab something and come back to our room to eat... We don't mind doing that, we are an easy going family...

I was thinking of bringing some cereal, poptarts, etc to save on cost of breakfast along with a bag of snacks... make coffee in our room, or buy a cup at the Gaylord.


Can anyone recommend somewhere to eat in Old Town, etc....

I'd love the suggestions... I was told that Alexandria is about a 10 mile drive away into VA from the Gaylord.

My husband is from Alexandria and we love going in on the weekends to eat! We love Mexican (South Austin Grill), Spanish Tapas (La Tasca), and fun Irish (Murphy's). There are so many restaurants to choose from so you will not go hungry. Have fun at the Gaylord-I think there is a Shrek ice exhibit going on right now-not sure.

If you are looking for a "nicer" meal, DH and I ate at the http://www.warehousebarandgrill.com/ a couple years ago. Food was very good!

We enjoyed walking around Old Towne

The Fish Market and Bilbo Baggins are also good choices in Alexandria.
