“ Located in the heart of Falls Church City right next to the state theater. This place is basically a beach shack in the middle of the city. They often have live music, and always have an up-beat beach vibe. The grub is average or better but not amazing. Honestly, none of the food is super tasty in my opinion (and I've had everything on the menu) but they have a wide variety, from Fajitas and hush puppies, to fish and crab cakes. The usually have live music and a few times a year they have concerts in the parking lot.”

“Family favorite spot. Half price raw bar on Tuesday nights starting at 4 pm. If you love raw oysters you really should go to Dogwood! Great every night, but Tuesday is when you will see us there!”

“THE spot to go when you need some retail therapy. Between Tyson’s Corner Center (aka Tysons I) and the Galleria (aka Tysons II), you’ll find what you need. Tysons I is home to outposts of most national brands, an AMC movie theatre, and a large food court, while Tysons II caters to high-end shopping (think Cartier, Burberry, and Versace).”
