Valentine’s Day in Occoquan

Posted by Lori on February 4, 2015 in Holiday, Restaurant News

Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.  Even though I love driving into DC to try out new restaurants, we usually stay local for this holiday. Our all-time favorite is Bistro L’hermitage. You can’t ask for a better atmosphere on Valentine’s Day! I’ve listed a few more dining options around the Occoquan waterfront. All are very quaint, just as you would expect, and most of them come out with a special menu.

The Secret Garden Cafe

Bottle Stop – Wine Bar & Shop

Occoquan Inn

The Landing at Occoquan Harbour Marina

Cock & Bowl

Blue Arbor Cafe

Madigan’s Waterfront

The Electric Palm

Before you leave town, don’t forget to stop by our new chocolate shop, Nazbro Chocolates.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
