Kid-friendly restaurant in Old Town, Alexandria?

We are looking for a kid-friendly restaurant in Old Town, Alexandria, preferably near the Torpedo factory that is open for lunch on Sunday.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Search this board under "kid friendly", "family friendly" in Old Town Alexandria, or Google it. Lots of previous posts.

    1. I haven't checked on what is open, but for casual I like the Pita House, for nicer The Majestic. Overwood is nice too, but casual.

        Second Overwood. Columbia Firehouse is also good. I swore off Chadwick's after a horrendous meal at their Georgetown location, but was pleasantly suprised at their Old Town shop. It's a block away from the Torpedo Factory.

      2. You didn't specify which maybe this is too late. Two places that are particularly kid friendly are King Street Blues and Hard Times Chili. There are also BGR and one of the first 5 Guys in Old Town too. And, if the kids like fish, Eamonn's can be fun just because it's so differnet.

        Hmm, the links don't seem to be working correctly. Here are addresses, all are Googleable:

        King Street Blues, King & St. Aseph
        Hard Times, King & West Street
        BGR, King & Washington St.
        5 Guys, King and Colubus
        Eamonn's, King and Columbus

        King Street Blues
        112 N Saint Asaph St, Alexandria, VA 22314

        Hard Times Cafe Alexandria
        1404 King St, Alexandria, VA 22314

        728 King St, Alexandria, VA 22314

        The Burger Joint
        106 N Washington St, Alexandria, VA 22314

        1. As a denizen of Old Town, I would say the most kid friendly is Chadwicks. Pita House and Majestic are not really kid friendly -- both in food or size of place. Austin Grille and Bertucci's on King Street (about 4 blocks from water) are very kid friendly too. Hard Times is also good but a bit further away on King Street. Of course it depends what you mean by kid friendly -- food wise? Accepting of children? kid menu?
