Alexandria, VA Outdoor Dining & Restaurant

Summer has officially begun, and that means it’s high time for some al fresco culinary pleasures, wouldn’t you say? For outdoor dining in Alexandria, Virginia—a fantastic place to find yourself in summertime, we should note—steer your way over to our upscale tavern restaurant here at the Alexandrian on King Street!

A Fresh-Air Meal in Old Town Alexandria at Jackson 20

In addition to our elegant indoor dining space, we offer an outdoor patio with views of the Old Town Alexandria skyline as well as seats out front along hip and happening King Street.

Whether it’s the brunch hour, a sunny Alexandrian afternoon, or a long and luxurious summer evening, you’ll love the atmosphere outside Jackson 20—and, of course, you’ll love how that atmosphere comes perfectly complemented by our mouthwatering American tavern cuisine, product of the culinary genius and skill of Executive Chef James Hudson.

Seasonal Farm-to-Table Summer Dining at Jackson 20

Omelets, grits and eggs, crab cake benedicts, tall stacks of buttermilk pancakes, and other note-perfect breakfasts; slow-cooked beef brisket and the J20 Tavern Burger, corn and pepper chowder and Waldorf salads, almond-crusted rockfish and buttermilk fried chicken for lunch or dinner—prepare yourself for taste-bud-wowing dishes here at Jackson 20, no matter what time of day you seek us out.

Test the notion that everything tastes better outdoors (we happen to think Jackson 20 fare tastes just as good inside) by savoring your meal out front or on the courtyard patio, toasting the summer air of Old Town Alexandria!

Summer Breezes & Special Events at Jackson 20

And on Sunday evenings, kids 10 years old and younger eat for free as part of our “Sunday Supper” deal.
