Anything with a beach theme - I'm there

No seashells or framed fish but the food was great! Nice pairing of sliced meats with glazed onions and great sauces etc.

Jettie's has a well-deserved reputation for serving up the best sandwiches fast, in a cheerful Nantucket kind of atmosphere. Our family goes out of our way to eat there and bring friends, because everybody likes the food. The warning signs started earlier this year when the experienced, efficient sandwich and counter staff started leaving one by one. Soon the waits... More

I had heard that Jettie's was the place to go for great sandwiches. So after moving our daughter into GWU, off we went. We got three sandwiches, two individual bags of chips and three drinks for $47. They were just sandwiches.. seemed a bit high to us but it is DC after all. The sandwiches my husband and daughter got... More

Go for the sandwiches. Great quality, unique offerings, lots of meat. The Summerhouse is excellent as is the Dionisis (Lobster Roll). I eat here almost weekly. The sandwiches are huge so come hungry or share. The kids meals are okay, the salads are not of the same caliber as the sandwiches, and the ice cream is okay. If you want... More

Don't order more than one sandwich per sheet of paper when you're in line at Jettie's, or risk the wrath of the young sandwich artists! I almost walked out after being chastised by an employee, but the quality of the food made me bite my tongue. Everything from the roast beef dipper to the lobster roll is delicious.

I used to enjoy eating at Jetties and the food was always great but I felt like I was being nickeled and dimed. Where else do you have to pay extra for turkey, cheese, bacon and more? If you order one of their signature sandwiches it is less but if you want turkey with cheese, lettuce, tomato and bacon with... More

Delighted to find Jetties in DC. Not sure if it is the same one that was in Nantucket, but my family had an excellent, casual meal on a picnic bench in Georgetown. Sandwiches are large and tasty. They use good ingredients.

Jetties is located North of Georgetown, up the road in a residential area from the main shopping and dining areas in Georgetown on Q Street and by the Waterfront. We came here after visiting the nearby Kreeger Museum. Parking is limited to street parking, but it wasn't that hard to find a space. The menu has cold sandwiches, hot sandwiches... More

I'm sure that any number of offerings at Jetties are perfectly wonderful, but I ordered a Nobadeer my first time here years ago and it's what I go for now. Think Thanksgiving on sourdough and you'd be dead on. The rest of it is fine - sodas, chips, cookies, ice cream - but I go for one thing only. And... More

You don't expect much from chain sandwich restaurants these days, but Jettie's actually delivers some unusually good ones. Seafood fillings are kind of their specialties but I had a traditional egg salad sandwich that was terrific. Salads look very fresh. Slightly more expensive than other franchise places, but noticeably better.
