Yes the place is a dive, Yes the tables and bar....and the entire place need a serious scrubbing. But hey, after a few or five drinks, made for you by some rather sexy ladies...you'll forget about your shoes and napkins sticking to the floor/tables! This is a local place with a bunch of locals; go figure. The girls behind the bar are always great and make a mean Jack and Coke - not bad eyeball liberty either. The food certainly isn't going to get a Michelin star anytime soon, but after a few or five drinks; it'll cure that bar food craving. Always decent music on and plenty of sports (did I mention they sport a good collection of large screen tv's for a dive bar?). So sit back, test your trivia skills with the trivial pursuit cards on the bar, enjoy the girls, and drink some beverages...

OK neighborhood bar. I was actually surprised that the food was decent. Pizza, wings, salmon...not bad at all. If you live in the area, want to go out to a bar that is not too far and has adequate parking...this is your joint. Just don't go expecting great ambiance or anything like that. This place gets all kinds of folk from business white collar to no collar at all. Adjust your attitude before you go, and you just may have fun.
Great local bar. Yep, it's a dive. If you can't tell that going in you aren't paying attention. The food is great - especially the pizza. Service is great, too. If you're looking for a place that serves tapas, where everyone dresses in all black and orders cosmos - keep driving.
This place doesn't look like much but they have the BEST PIZZA in West End Alexandria. It does have sort of a dive atmosphere but that is what its patrons come for. Service is good, people are friendly. Now that smoking is banned we are happy to go there regularly.
Sure, it's a little seedy, but that's perfect for a dive bar. Where else can you get a pizza big enough for two and two large (20 oz or more) beers for under $20? Plus, they have all the games. My wife and I go here to grab a seat and watch the games here.
Try and get either a spot at the bar or a booth on the bar-side of the place. The service will be much more responsive. Also, if you come there more than a couple times, you'll definitely get to know the bartenders and they'll be incredibly responsive.
I agree with some of the other reviewers - the place is a bit seedy, but, in my opinion, that's part of the charm. I've eaten there twice and really enjoyed the food. The pizza is first class and the meatloaf is good, too. I will definitely go back.
it took a LONG time, but the place doesn't smell like cigarette smoke anymore. My girlfriend recently came to Reynolds for the first time since right after the smoking ban came into effect, and remarked about how much better it had gotten.
"I love this place. It really is a neighborhood bar. There are ""regulars."" People just start up conversations with you about the most random subjects. If it's a dive bar, it's the friendliest dive bar I've ever been to."
Can't-miss food items: Pizza (any kind, but the white pizza and supreme are particularly good); wings; gyros; other Greek food. (If you stick to these items, you'll never go wrong.)
