My girlfriend and I stopped in here after a long day out in the sun in Loudon County, hungry and thirsty. As the sun set and the cool night air fell on Alexandria, we decided to stop into this neighborhood bar and restaurant and give it a try. we were NOT disappointed at all. Our server (thank you, Cody!) was... More

We go every Monday for a burger and a beer. My burger is always cooked to order perfectly. There are lots of choices on the Monday Night burger menu. If you don't like burgers there are many tasty options on their regular menu. Service is always fast and courteous. There is outside dining weather permitting.

We frequent Shooters from time to time on Saturdays as we like the half price bottle of wine night. We were seated outside, which was nice, but had to wait about ten minutes before our server came to see us. He apologized for the delay, but most of our time there he was apologizing for something (wine bottle without glasses,... More

When my fiancé and I tried this place, I was expected a sports bar or something, but it was a great little restaurant with a decent menu. I had meatloaf which was really, really great, and we shared some old bay wings, which were great despite me not being the biggest OB fan. Service was good. Nothing to complain about!... More

We've been coming here for a while and not only is the food delicious but service is always great especially Josh. I highly recommend the appetizer firecracker shrimp but be forewarned, it's spicy but it also come with fried green beans and a wonderful Asian style slaw. You could actually have it as a meal. They also have incredible steak... More

We had the steak and cheese egg rolls for an appetizer and the signature shooter burger and Meatloaf. Everything was delicious! The steak and cheese egg rolls were especially good. Our server was friendly and... More

We have been coming to Shooter McGee's for probably the last fifteen years. A bit of a drive, but worth it. Why? Lobster night - Wednesdays, 20.00 or so for a 1.5 pound lobster. Absolutely delicious and probably the best deal in the DC Metro area. It is fresh, meaty served with drawn butter and a small potato. This is... More

Good food, nice outdoor patio & ambiance. We got Cobb salads and crab cakes. The crab cakes came with fried artichokes- what an unexpected surprise!Both meals were excellent. The outdoor patio was relaxing, with music & covered with umbrellas
