This is a hidden gem that we swear Thomas Jefferson used to visit - it's that old! We were just visiting DC last year and I came across this place online as they have gotten stellar reviews by the locals. The beer selection is great if not a little expensive (great Belgian beer usually is) but it was the mussels... More

Okay, so this place seems dark and inconsequential from the outside. More than a little worn. A local friend suggested this place for the mussels and fries. Our first impression was that it was dark and narrow and a bit out of the way. So glad we went! The mussels and fries were as good as she said they would... More

I love this place. Their mussel and beer selection is top notch and is updated frequently enough that there is always something new to try. Try the Tropical Mussels - you will not be sorry!

While the server seemed a bit stressed, the food and service were good. I left absolutely stuffed and probably should have just left some of those mussels in the bowl. Generally places big on mussels and such seafood are light on the portions, but not here! They offer a large variety of sauces for the mussels and most of those... More

I have eaten at Granville Moores at least five or ten times. They can be hit or miss on food. Their mussels and fries are petty good most of the time. However, you are going to spend at least 30 plus per person not including drinks. For a place that looks like it falling apart on the outside and is... More

After reading the other reviews I was excited to visit. Don't let the outside intimidate you because once you're inside it feels really cozy and has that "dive" vibe. We ordered mussels and they were AWESOME - my husband says the bison burger was the best thing he ate in DC. Also, the service was really friendly and we enjoyed... More

decent mussels, I liked the brick walls and farm housed style wood tables. We arrived at the perfect time around 6pm. Grabbed the last table available. Was so happy not have to wait for 45 minutes to an hour for dinner. ordered the mussels and beer, everything was decent!

This is the sort of place that makes you feel like you are in a movie. The atmosphere, the food, the staff - everything is so perfect and so unique you can barely stand it. We had a big party crammed into a small booth but we didn't care. The food and beer was so amazing. Amongst 10 of us... More

Took my family of 5 (3 kids 14, 12, and 10) and my bro-in-law and his wife to this place. First thing is enjoy it's "rawness." The setting is dark and cranky...but just wait for what shows up. The food and beer are amazing. Let one person order for the table and share away. 3 orders of different types of... More

Unlike a lot of places along the H street corridor, this place isn't gimmicky. It's just a good bar. When I came here, I walked in to Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds playing on the jukebox and had some good beer. It was fairly busy, yet not uncomfortably crowded. The food's pretty good, I remember; though I can't recall... More
