Cedar Knoll is a restaurant nestled along the scenic George Washington Parkway and is long known for its views of the Potomac River. The restaurant, which first opened in 1941, is located at 9030 Lucia Lane right off the Parkway that is a beautiful drive from anywhere in the Metro DC area any day of the week.
Cedar Knoll was built as a farmhouse, part of River Farm, on land once owned by George Washington. The restaurant, with its wood floors and three fireplaces (one in each room), has a cozy and rustic feel. Most of the tables have views of the Potomac River and during warm weather, there is outdoor dining. A log cabin that serves as a lounge, is just steps away from the entryway bar area. It features a huge fireplace with a portrait of George Washington.
Cedar Knoll offers American and French cuisine with waterfront views. You can enjoy a variety of fresh seafood, from fried rock shrimp and lobster fondue to scallop and shrimp risotto and jumbo lump crab cakes, plus a selection of oysters and other seasonal dishes. Cedar Knoll is also serving curbside pick-up during lockdown days.
