We have won DC's best happy hour and voted TOP 10 spots to Brunch. We have been known for our affordable pricing, including our famous $9 lunch specials. We offer insane specials including our half priced burger nights with trivia on Tuesdays and our biggest night of the week...Taco Thursday's with a free taco bar starting at 5 pm and $2 Coronas.

I did several happy hours with my friends here in The Front Page Restaurant and Grill. Try their bruschettas! They are truly classy. They have a small selection of wines but I tried an Argentinian Malbec that was excellent. I haven't tried the restaurant yet but soon I will. For the happy hour you have two free tacos; but try...

My husband and I stopped by The Front Page yesterday for lunch. We sat outside, since it was so beautiful. The service was friendly, but a bit on the slow side -- we didn't get silverware or napkins until a full 5 minutes after our food had been delivered and we finally were able to ask someone. The food was... More

The sidewalk cafe atmosphere was a great place to catch up with an old friend. The food was pretty much average. To their credit the lamburger was an interesting item for the menu and certainly was decently prepared. At the same time the fries were typically mass produced and mostly cold. The margarita I had was watery to average and... More

The menu isn't the fanciest, the atmosphere isn't the most posh, but if you want good food at a reasonable price, with friendly service, this is the place for you. Nestled about half way between the two DuPont Circle Metro exits and within easy walking distance of several hotels, the location cants be beat. There were decent Happy Hour drink... More

The service was friendly but slow except the hostess didn't smile once. The food was warm at best and tasted good. It was better than bad but not great.

I was in town for a conference and this was nearby. The menu looked great and I was in the mood for a really good burger and this place had one on the menu that it was renown for. So I ordered it. It was average. Burger itself was cooked perfectly, but I've had better buns at chick fil a... More

Came for lunch and ate outside--the food was fine-service was fine--outside felt a little dirty. No real complaints--just ok.

The brunch is an excellent value for the money. There are a variety of items on the unlimited buffet. Bottomless mimosas or champagne is an added bonus!!

I always hate when food on major holidays gets prepared to the point where it's totally different from other days. Buffett style, very greasy chicken, not a huge variety and the extra up charge I $3 was unnecessary. I ordered off the regular menu as I felt spending $28 for brunch and $10 for unlimited mimosas was a bit crazy.... More

The Front Page offers good food, specials, and above average music. I stopped by for Taco Thursday, and ordered dinner as well. Everything was perfect. My only criticism is that it is very busy, and thus the service was a little slow in the restaurant section. One thing to note is that it is a bar, so if anyone in... More
