Ruthie's All-Day


Ruthie’s All-Day is a special neighborhood place that makes bellies happy all-day, every day. We are a family-friendly, all-day restaurant and bar with a custom-built wood-burning hearth. We serve coffee, breakfast, lunch, and dinner with coffee/breakfast counter service in the morning transitioning to full-service lunch throughout the week, and a modern take on meat and three (including 100% wood-smoked barbecue) in the evening with brunch on the weekends. We also have an extensive beverage program that reflect the flavors and seasonality of the menus, including a wine list with old-world classics and new world producers, cocktails with twists on classic favorites, and a rotating eight draft beer program from local breweries. We are an unpretentious chef-driven restaurant with an emphasis on using locally-sourced seasonal ingredients. Ruthie’s All-Day is located in a historic Mid-Century Modern landmark building formerly occupied by a chocolate factory/ice cream shop named Mr. W’s in the 1950s. The team worked with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and the National Park Service to help preserve, carefully restore, and enhance the design of the building's original character. The flexible open floor plan with extra-large windows on all three sides and outdoor seating connected by large operable windows seamlessly brings the outdoors inside to reflect the mid-century modern design of the original building.
