Description: The Front Page DC, opened in 1985, has been serving DC's socialites for decades! We pride ourselves on prompt, friendly service, excellent food, long happy hours, and bountiful brunches. 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. The Front Page has always been family owned and operated, and we have always treated our restaurants like our home. We welcome you to our restaurant, and we hope you feel like you are home while you are here. Cheers, Alex Heidenberger

We were in town for my sister's wedding in December. There was a group of 35 plus in town for said wedding. The reception after the wedding was held at the Front Page and I was slightly leery after reading some of the reviews, but I have to say this became one of my best experiences I can think of!...

We came hungry, and left happy. The loaded tots are addicting, and between my friends and I, we ordered several choices on the menu. None of us had any complaints, whatsoever. Service was prompt and friendly, drinks were great, and the atmosphere is great for hanging out with some friends, or dinner with family!

Found the Front Page restaurant across from the Metro entrance, it was recommended by a fellow passenger. Press clippings decorate the walls (Washington Post)--but the food was just ok---and expensive! Burgers were $15 (tasty but steep)--service was fancy, but more "dinner" than lunch.

This is the place where you go with friends to share stories of the day and enjoy good company with a good meal. The place has a pub feel and the moment you walk in you get the vibe that good times are here and now. For myself I had the chicken pot pie which brought back memories of my... More

Me and my wife went out to celebrate her birthday. At the hotel they recommended us this restaurant. On our arrival we found the restaurant nice and ambience was modern. We like good and tasty food and the food at frontpage was excellent. Nice soft bread as entry, tasty calamari and delicious pasta dupont.

The location is great, right across from the Metro. Once you step in the bar is on your right, but it is difficult to find the hostess stand to get seated at a table. We wondered around and no one we passed ask if they could help us, even though they were obviously employees. Finally found the hostess and got... More

Excellent assortment of drinks and casual appetizers. Great for sitting down to catch up with an old friend.

Happy Hour until 8pm (check hours); nightly specials. It was packed and the noise was deafening for Thursday Corona (2 dollars per bottle) night, but the place is well staffed and it took mere moments to get an order at the bar. Restaurant was also good.

Decided on this place for dinner one night and it wasn't great but it wasn't terrible either. Of all the places in the world to eat, this is one I'd probably visit again but not my top choice. The food was good, but not out of the ordinary. The service was average and a bit slow. The atmosphere was a... More
