We just happened upon this place after our capitol tour. Very interesting decor, friendly staff, good food. More of a locals place. Reasonable prices. Would have been fun to hang out here with a couple beers, but it was too early in the day for that to happen.

Went here after a long hot day in DC. Place has that old ecclectic look, dark wood walls. The restaurant was redone after a fire, so everything inside is new. Interesting animals and such hanging on the walls. Excellent selection of beers. They have a wonderful menu, not your typical bar food. There was a handwritten piece of paper on... More

We stopped here for dinner based on the Triple D episode, and weren't disappointed. We lucked into finding an empty booth in the back (seating is fairly limited, it's a small place), and had great service and great food at very reasonable prices. Would definitely go back again if we were in DC.

My husband and I were googling breakfast places when we came up with this restaurant. We saw that it had been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and decided to try it out. Our server was very friendly and answered any questions we had. I had the sausage, egg and cheese croissant and home fries and it was so good.... More

Being a new tourist to DC and staying in a VRBO rental we found this little gem by accident. Looks like a dive but it was very clean. Service was good although our first waiter didn't seem too thrilled with customers. We got a super friendly older waitress who was bubbling over. The scrambled eggs, sausage, scrabble, grits were all... More

Stopped here during an extended DC visit because we saw it featured on the Food Network. Not worth it! The atmosphere is fine. Dark wood, feels like a local pub, quiet for lunch. But given that I can get a perfectly tasty sandwich at chains like McAlister's or Jason's Deli, I expect a place like this to deliver something more... More

Wow. Big portions. Food was hot. Are lunch on a Wednesday after the lunch rush. We had mozzarella sticks and fried pickle appetizer. Very hot and fried crispy goodness. Also had burger, crab melt and catfish po boy. All huge and delicious. I ate corned beef has and found it to be tasty. Worth the trip.

Visited Tune Inn on March 9. We had seen this place on DDD and wanted to check it out. The food was great. A lot of different items and good price. The staff was a bit put off by anyone who wasn't a "regular." The location was a bit away from downtown but was definitely worth the stop.

This is a greasy spoon. There's nothing wrong with that, but that's what it is. The food is heavy, not particularly high quality or well prepared, fish is frozen, etc. There are lots of interesting looking restaurants in easy walking distance. We had dinner here before a play, picking this place because tripadvisor ranked is very high. Often I find... More
