Lovely low key night out

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

During a recent trip to D.C. another friend and I were treated to the magic of Mr. Henry's. It's a small, easily missed place on the South Eastern side of Pennyslvia Ave tucked into a corner of a row of buildings. If you do manage to find your way there, however, it's entirely worth the effort of parallel parking. The... More

This is a great place to have a drink or two and a bite to eat while traveling or doing business on the Hill. It's just steps from the Eastern Market Metro. It's really a pub of sorts with a comfort food menu. My bartender, Tim was very welcoming and made me feel at home. My selection was the meatloaf,... More

We stopped here for lunch on Sunday afternoon en route to the Botanical Gardens. Our waitress, Jenn, was pleasant and helpful with menu suggestions and local directions. I had the "very well known" turkey club which was perfect. The turkey was real turkey and not lunch meat. The bacon was cooked to my liking...not over or underdone. My wife had... More

I've been eating here for 27 years. Always a reliable burger, and on Mondays burgers are 1/2 price. I love the onion rings and they offer a half portion. I do not care for the fries. The nachos are excellent -- better than those offered at the Mexican restaurants on the Hill. Daily specials and a wide variety of selections... More

Love the food - Monday's are half-price burgers. The service is great - they people there remember you if you stop by on a regular basis. The beer choices are plentiful, the onion rings are the best. If you are visiting the capitol area, stop by here at the end of the day. It's worth it.
