Jackson 20: An Alexandria Restaurant Celebrating Modern Tradition

Located in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, Jackson 20 is at once elegant and casually comfortable, contemporary and rooted in tradition. Our namesake, President Andrew Jackson, was legendary for his hospitable nature - he was the first U.S. president to invite the public to attend the inaugural ball. True to this spirit, Jackson 20 is a convivial and popular gathering place. Here you'll find a welcoming atmosphere and fresh, inspired American regional cuisine.

 

Jackson 20 is Inaugurating a New Era in Dining

Named for U.S. President Andrew Jackson and his visage on the $20 bill, we honor our namesake by providing affordable food and drink in a social environment. If the "man of the people" were here today, we think he would appreciate our strong, innovative and hospitable attitude.

Jackson 20 is an American Tavern that evokes the rich history of our Alexandria location with modern sensibilities and a pioneering approach. Communal tables and a view to the kitchen add to the bustling town-center atmosphere. Regional American dishes are prepared with traditional wood-fire cooking methods and fresh, local ingredients that vary with the seasons.

Our Dedication to Detail

The stage is set from the moment you arrive. You are greeted by both a warm welcome and a giant bronze pig. As with many Colonial-era taverns and inns, this iconic bronze statue presides over the room as a symbol of hospitality and abundance. The pig, President Jackson's favorite animal, appears as a motif at your table as well, in the form of whimsical, pig-shaped napkin rings. But this light-hearted nod to our namesake does not belie our sincere focus on excellent food and drink.

At Jackson 20, our sense of place is primary and contemporary classics abound.
