The Grille at Morrison House: An Old Town Alexandria Restaurant & Bar

The Grille at Morrison House is a Federal-style mansion situated in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, surrounded by history and grace, and within walking distance of the area's charming antique stores, art galleries, boutique shops, restaurants and museums. Morrison House itself is a AAA Four Diamond property and was named to Condé Nast Traveler's 2008 Gold List.

But what's inside is where it counts.

What's Inside is Where it Counts

The Grille elegantly blends the best of the past with today's freshest tastes. A place "where antique meets modern," where a spectacular collection of art and elegant period furnishings complements Chef Brian McPherson contemporary interpretations of French and American cuisine. Where classic teas and special occasions provide the foundation for some of Chef McPherson's most imaginative creations. The Grille's contrasts make it an extraordinary place to enjoy a meal, share a libation and relax in fine style.

The Two Sides of The Grille

You'll find two distinct spaces here: The Dining Room is classically appointed in summery hues, plush furnishings and tall windows. Further down the hall, The Grille is flavored more along the lines of an American bistro, adorned in rich, red leathers, deep wood tones and its own piano bar.

Accommodating Every Special Request

The Grille at Morrison House recognizes that all of our guests have different tastes and dining preferences. Therefore, we are more than happy to offer vegan and vegetarian dishes in addition to our daily menus. Our entire team is committed to making The Grille the best dining experience in Old Town Alexandria. We also serve several gluten free options for any visitor with food allergies. If you have certain requests, please let a server or Chef McPherson know, as our entire team is familiar with our vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options, and will be more than willing to help you choose the perfect meal to suit your individual preferences.

We look forward to introducing you - and welcoming you back - to this wonderful blend of yesterday and tomorrow. We look forward to seeing you at The Grille.
