Our Story

Colonial-era taverns were meant to make travelers feel at home, and that’s just what Jackson 20 does, for locals and out-of-towners alike. A reverence for history pervades the kitchen, where Chef McPherson elevates classics with deep American roots. The practice of using fresh local ingredients in seasonal menus made sense 200 years ago, so we don't even consider it trendy. But we do appreciate changing tastes, and will happily accommodate guests with delicious vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free* options in addition to our daily menu. Ask your server. We'll make it right.

**While we do our best to meet all dietary needs, our restaurant is not a fully gluten-free facility.

Named after the notoriously sociable president who graces the front of the twenty-dollar bill, Jackson 20 is an American tavern serving refined comfort food with their convivial hospitality in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. Contemporary elegance is served three meals daily in the dining room, with its brick, leather, stone and wood accents. Chef Brian McPherson’s crave-worthy food pairs with creative cocktails from our bar, often sipped alfresco on the outdoor patio. If you’re looking for hearty food and drink in a welcoming atmosphere, you will love being a part of the Jackson 20 family.
