Originally named the Cole Bin, in 1978 "Ramparts" became the new neighborhood watering hole. In the early 1980’s it grew and became a pub and grill and we have been proudly feeding Alexandria since! Recent renovations were done with dark hardwood floors, white washed brick walls, and soft leather seating. With over 200 beers and wines, a diverse menu, and great specials, there is something for everyone!
In addition to the regular menu, Chef Keys offers daily, weekly, and monthly features! There are also monthly beer and wine features to enjoy with your meal in the dining room, private room, or at one of our two bars.
