Great menu for the kids after visiting the DC Capital area. A bit like a bar but that's what it is. If you can live with the tight seating loud music, the food is good, family favorites, and reasonable. Parking is available at the street, free after 6:30.

A Capital Hill neighborhood staple. Located on Pennsylvania Ave near the Supreme Court and Library of Congress. With so many places to select from along Pennsylvania Ave it's difficult to know what to choose. Tune Inn is a bar with seating in the rear, this might remove it as a possible it travel with under age children. No concerns about... More

The Tune Inn has great air about it, while small the seating was comfortable, ambience was great, close and friendly. The food was fantastic, I had the beer battered hamburger it was fantastic, spouse had Joe's west Virginia roost beef it also was fantastic as were the handmade motzarell sticks . The waitress was very pleasant and efficient. The native... More

So we decided to check this place out while on a business trip. Wanted to check out a place that had been on DDD. Definitely a place where the locals go. I think we were the only tourists in the place. I had the deep fried burger and it was amazing. Highly recommend that to anyone! The service left something... More

Saw this place reviewed by Guy Fieri - thought we would check it out while visiting DC. Service was fast, waitress friendly, and the food was not a disappointment. Parking is easy enough to find. This is an old diner however you feel immediately relaxed... check it out (inexpensive eatery).

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
