Romantic Valentine’s Day Dinner in Alexandria, VA

On the lookout—and maybe getting desperate—for a truly standout D.C.-area dining destination for this Valentine’s Day, which, might we remind you, is coming down the pike pretty fast and furious? Hey, no worries: Book a table here at Jackson 20 and bowl that special someone over with superlative American tavern fare, libations, and all-around ambience.

Ours is heartwarming, unpretentious cuisine that nonetheless draws upon the finest local ingredients and some time-honored Southern culinary styles—all beautifully choreographed by our much-feted Executive Chef James Hudson. Whether you’re bringing a long-time partner or a brand-new date for Valentine’s Day, the Jackson 20 menu has something to delight any palate—and inspire no small share of romance kindled over good food, good drink, and good conversation.

And the Jackson 20 atmosphere—both warm and stylish, half tavern and half fine-dining establishment—will have your dining companion swooning.

Valentine’s Day Dinner at Jackson 20—or Breakfast, or Brunch, or Lunch

Make your reservations for a Valentine’s Day feast at Jackson 20 today: We want to make sure you get to claim your very own two-top at Alexandria’s Cupid-friendliest dining destination.

Our gastronomic pleasures extend all across the day, so we’re here to accommodate your February 14th date whenever you want to hold it. From the sumptuous Crab Cake Benedict and signature Chicken & Waffles of the Jackson 20 brunch to the Amish Chicken, Pimento Cheese Ravioli, and Applewood Smoked Kielbasa among the dinner offerings, you’ll have everything you need for a memorable Valentine’s Day meal.

And it’d be wrong not to spotlight the dessert options, right, given the occasion? (Don’t skip dessert on Valentine’s Day—some friendly advice.) Our Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake may be about the most classic route to go for the holiday, but, then again, our Appalachia Custard, Banana Cream Pie, Apple Pie, and one-of-a-kind Ice Cream Sandwich Trio fit the bill nicely, too.

Whatever wets your whistle, the Jackson 20 bar pours some suitably celebratory poisons for a Valentine’s date. Inventive cocktails—the Virginia Gentleman, the City That Never Sleeps, the Girl With No Name—rub shoulders with Gin & Tonics, Martinis, Sazeracs, and other perfectly executed staples. If wine or craft beer’s more your style or your mood, well, we’ve got you covered there, too.

We’ll See You February 14th at Jackson 20

So what exactly are you waiting for? Those dinner (or brunch) reservations aren’t going to make themselves. That valentine of yours deserves a better-than-average meal out for the holiday, and we’ll deliver that in spades at Jackson 20 here on King Street.
