Last Days of Overwood Restaurant in O’Town | Fireman Mike | Old Town Post

Overwood, at 220 N. Lee Steet, in Old Town, Alexandria, will open for the last time on Sunday, August 14, 2016.  The restaurant is being replaced with a barbecue concept by renowned chef Myron Mixon (See Related Article below for the BBQ story).

Overwood was a “Cheers” type atmosphere where everyone knew your name. It was also one of the best kept happy hour secrets in Old Town. You can grab any draft brew for $3.00. The $1.00 happy hour oysters were also very tasty. 

There is still time to pop into Overwood before it’s gone.  Stop in, grab a brew, eat some happy hour food and say hi to Rami, Valentina, Jill, Caleb, Saied, and Zack. Well, guess you get to know their names as well.

The following farewell message is from Overwood’s Facebook page:


Dear Neighbors, Friends & Family,

After nearly 10 wonderful years of business in Old Town,

Alexandria Overwood will close our doors on August 14th. We have thoroughly enjoyed serving you over the years, and will be forever grateful both for your support as well as the amazing efforts of our employees, both current and past.

We hope you will stop in and see us another time or two before we say goodbye. Come enjoy your favorite Overwood dish and our greatly discounted wine list! We will re-open around September 5th, as MYRON MIXON’S PITMASTER BARBEQUE. Myron is the star of the TV series, BBQ Pitmasters, Smoked, and BBQ Rules. He is a NY Times Best Selling author as well as a champion BBQ competitor in the United States. His two books are titled, “BBQ Rules” and “Smoking With Myron Mixon”. We will alert you when we will re-open.

With Heartfelt Gratitude,

The Overwood

  1. Lived in Alexandria from 2008 to 2010 and this was one of our go-to restaurants. My wife really loved the Brussel sprouts and I think my favorite was the seared flounder. (wish I had that recipe) A great spot. Even though we are no long in Alexandria we still talk about go to Overwoods. Cheers to you and your future endeavors.
