A little dark but a tasty brunch

In an "evolving" neighborhood not connected by the metro, we made our way by bus and were a little put-off upon entering what looked like a dark "dive-bar". But excellent friendly service and a very well-prepared brunch menu made us forget the kind of depressing atmosphere in a hurry. Great shrimp... read more

Granville Moore's has always been a DC favorite for me for the past 5 years. I have always gone here for the mussels. That said, my recent visit this past weekend disappointed me greatly. I don't know if mussels are not in season right now, but they were considerably SMALL. They were probably close to a third of the size... More

Based on ratings and reviews, our expectations were not met. Not even close. Granville Moore's appears to be more bar than restaurant, at least on the first level. Must make reservations through open table for guaranteed seating. No tables available Friday or Saturday night so we opted for Sunday brunch instead. After 3 days of looking forward to Marinere Mussels,... More

Dump of a place in a rough neighborhood. Food was mediocre at brunch. Service was good and attentive. I don't understand the ratings and why it made top 10 for brunch in DC. You can do much better elsewhere for the price and not feel like you needed a fire arm on the street. Not for families or special occasions.

We visited Dr. Granville's before having dinner at another restaurant close by. At 5:30 we were sent upstairs as there were no spaces at the downstairs bar. The tables were reserved for dinner guests (hint make a reservation to avoid a very long wait). The staircase is very narrow and not ADA accessible, and it feels like you are going... More

Ate here last night for the first time. Divy, brick-walled, narrow dining area is deceptive -- you would never guess that this place serves possibly the best mussels in DC. I wasn't craving anything in particular, but when I saw that they'd won the City Paper award for best mussels for eight years in a row, the decision was easy.... More

The brisket hash was amazing. Can't beat bloody Mary's with bacon in them! Reservations are recommended.

If you're new to the Atlas district, don't comment on the size of the restaurants. They are old homes. Narrow homes. Focus on the food. The food is good and the authentic hipster, non-lumber-sexual vibe is refreshing. Eat some mussels. Enjoy a nice beer. People watch. Done.

I've been to this hole in the wall in the past and thought it would be a fun stop for a gorup of 8 friends I was taking on a pub crawl through the Atlas District on H Street, NE. Made a reservation well in advance but when we got there they said it would be an hour or TWO.... More
