Pros: warm and inviting space, comfortable chairs, great happy hour specials ($5 drafts), and some great dishes (burgers, brunch short rib poutine, warm olives) Cons: inconsistent service and poor dishes (uncooked omelet on my last visit)

I just had a wonderful brunch at Eat Bar. I may go back again next weekend. Eat Bar is the cozy bar side of Tallula with a nice list of available beer, wine and specialty cocktails. With classic cartoons playing on a large screen overhead, I had three of the best things I've ever ordered. They started us with a... More

They have a nice bar menu. Something for everyone. The decor is very home like, with couches, upholstered chairs. little nitches for votive candles, giving it a very cozy & comfortable feel.

An tapas experience but with American standards. The menu has some really interesting options. I loved every item with beets in it. The cassoulet, while not like anything I have ever seen in France, was good. The corn dogs were a miss for me but my mom loved them. I thought meat did not have any flavor. The drink are... More

Wonderful little place right off of interstate 395, and I do mean little. Make sure you get there early on Friday and Saturday night to get a seat. A very popular place with the locals and its adjacent to its "big-sister" restaurant, Tallula. Make sure you check out the sliders, bacon popcorn balls, and home-made scrapple with fried egg and...

Most friendly little neighborhood joints don't have decent food. Eat Bar has excellent and innovative small plates. A fabulous place to meet friends, or watch the game!

This was our first visit to Eat Bar and we will be back. Been to Tallula and Eat Bar captures what was really good when Tallula opened. Love the corn dog bites. The bacon popcorn balls were ok. Good happy hour on wine and beer. Nice place. Great service

good tasting food and drink with a wide selection. They have adventurous food if you are willing to try it. Happy hour drinks are priced well, but food in general is on the expensive side since portions are so small. Our server was very busy and left us hanging, but another staff memeber came along and was very nice.

We come here for drinks and bar food. Beer and wine selection are both good. Bartenders are ok but pretty uneven, they seem to have a lot of turnover. Food is always good to great. Never slammed but always busy.

I went to Eat Bar with a buddy after catching a concert in DC. We got there a little before the kitchen was to close, but unlike some other places I've been to, there was no attitude or issue with ordering so late. We kicked it off with some great fries that came with a dipping sauce that tasted like... More
