The worst thing about it was the service.... the guy didn't even know what they sold let alone could store a drink order in his head.... write it down? it doesn't make you look unprofessional...unprofessional is messing up everyone order, telling us they had certain products only to tell us after almost an hour of waiting that they don't actually...

Smith's is my favorite bunch place downtown. I love the crab omelet and the Bloody Mary's. I have been going here for an eternity. The piano bar was a weekend staple for a couple of decades. So sorry to hear that it is closing. A bit of old time DC - funky and friendly.... to be replaced by places for... More

Overall an average experience. Went while in Georgetown after a long travel day. Drawn in by the sin for a piano bar and outdoor garden seating. Walked through a happening bar scene but no piano bar. Garden was kind of enclosed and dark. Food was fair but not pricy for the area.

Stopped to watch a match and would go back another time to try more. Happy hour drink prices are fair. Chili nachos were blah, but the wings were good as were the chicken fingers (more like planks - well done)

Mr. Smith's is unique in Georgetown because it is unpretentious. I was very excited to try Mr. Smith's; they had some good drink specials (some $5 shots/drinks and a $3.25 beer of the month). The drinks were weak, certainly not worth my money. If/when I return, I'll stick to beer. I ordered the chicken fingers appetizer, which was nothing special... More

We headed over on the recommendation of the concierge at the Willard, who described it perfectly. Loud enough to have trouble talking, but good piano player who was talented and professional. He came on at 10pm Saturday night, and we stayed through almost two sets. A broad range of favorites, and a good crowd. Beer menu not extensive, but adequate.... More

I found this place to be unimpressive. I had the worst Cosmo I ever tasted there. I don't even think they put Cranberry juice in it, probably just flavoured vodka. My companion had a foreign object floating in his beer... We decided not to eat there after that. So many other nice places in the vicinity to eat and drink... More
