Great-now and then!! Old standby becomes a new favorite

Due to proximity, we've frequented Mr. Henry's a lot for the delicious 1/2 price burgers on Monday nights. But since their renovations, its also become a destination for a more leisurely dinner sans kids upstairs while taking in some live music (jazz.)

All-around best burgers on Capitol Hill in DC. Eclectic clientele with a focus on neighbors. LGBT-friendly.

Went in for dinner and drinks with friends. Has a dive bar sort of feel on the first floor, never made it to the second floor. The service was slow but they were busy and understaffed at the time. Overall good prices for the area, decent food, nice waiter, and would go again.

I just happened to be passing and what with my feet crying out for a break, I decided to stop off here and I'm so glad I did. I was even lucky enough to partake in Happy Hour(s) which runs every day 4-7 and 10- midnight. I was only going to stay for one drink, but the atmosphere and service... More

This restaurant and bar is a favorite for the LGBT crowd, but families are welcome too. We had the most remarkable wait staff, who was super friendly and super-fast at refilling cocktails. Food was average.

Great casual restaurant, with quality food and jazz music upstairs. Well worth looking past the exterior and eating here. The pork chop was especially good!

I used to go here often but have stopped going because I always got the feeling the place was unclean. Can't imagine when the last time the place got a thorough cleaning and heaven only knows what the kitchen is like. It's better to eat outside if you can. Food is mediocre and the wait staff is surly and harried.

Hello L Fulton, Thank you for all your previous support of Mr. Henry's. I do wonder which Mr Henry's you are writing about., because for the last 10 months it would be hard to not notice all of the improvements in cleanliness, organization, repair and maintenance that has been occurring at the new Mr Henry's. .

We were walking past, heard the live jazz music upstairs and thought "why not stop and grab a bite to eat?". Turned out to be a great decision. Simple fare cooked well, really friendly and efficient service, lovely outdoor area and great live music.

I don't know the history on this place, but I swear it must be fairly lengthy. We dropped in during the middle of the afternoon when almost no one was in the restaurant. They've got the dark Victorian Pub feel going for sure. We grabbed chicken fingers for the kiddo - nicely done - and split a turkey club between... More
