A pretty fall day and I head to one of the canal locks to ride my bike. I always like to stop at Old Anglers after a long ride, enjoy a cocktail in the beer garden and enjoy talented live music. I sometimes split a...More

This was my firs trip to this restaurant, and it won't be my last. The restaurant was kind enough to accommodate a large group of business colleagues for a dinner. Despite the large group, the service was very good, as was the food. The menu...More

Lunch outside on a temperate day in November is to be cherished. It was lovely. Nice patio and tables far enough apart that there was privacy. My Santa Fe chicken salad had avacados, corn, tortilla strips and lettuce in a spicy dressing. It was good,...More

Eating lunch out doors at this restaurant, we (and many others) moved tables to try to escape from the bees. However, they followed the food wherever we went. This spoiled eating outside on a nice day. They should locate what is causing bees to swarm...More

The Old Angler's Inn is tucked in a hill side surrounded by the C&O Toe Path with nature trails. The restaurant has a cozy bar downstairs, outside seating and private rooms upstairs. We recently enjoyed a wonderful dinner and were spoiled by the amazing staff.

Haven't tried eating at the restaurant, but the food and beverage at the Beer Garden sure is great. Directly across from the parking lot for the Billy Goat Trail. A perfect way to conclude your hike.

What a pleasant getaway. An absolute gem with very good food and excellent service. I had no expectation of the menu, thinking it might just be like an english country inn but the food was well presented and the menu offered many options.

A most charming dining spot, the Old Angler's Inn has been immortalized in countless Washington D.C. novels as a romantic winter getaway, sitting before the fireplace and perusing the menu. It is equally glorious in the summer when the main action moves to the incomparable terrace.
