Stopped in for lunch while checking out National Harbor. The restaurant is by the water. We had a short wait to be seated. The dining room is elegant, yet comfortable. Once we were seated, we found the service to be excellent. The server was very attentive. Water was refilled without having to ask, etc. I was looking for a light... More

Had a wonderful lunch here with my husband in June on the patio. The food was delicious (fish tacos) and had a wonderful view of National Harbor. Our waitress was attentive and our water glasses were filled regularly. We also came here for Happy Hour from 4-7pm twice on our trip and the value was great. Would definitely come here... More

National Harbor is growing and growing, and weekends especially are very crowded. However, we were meeting friends from out of town, and it was the most convenient. We had been to this M and S before and were satisfied. However, this time it was merely adequate. Our reservation (for 3) was for 5pm, and we left at 7:20. Not because... More

The restaurant was not very busy when I visited on a Tuesday night, so I expected the service to be a bit quicker than it was. The food was very good, however, and the server was able to substitute items upon request. This is the second time I've been to this location, and it was nice being able to reserve... More

Took a customer to this location for a business dinner. The restaurant was very crowded and it felt like a step above TGI Friday's. Food portions were small and my fish tasted like it had been under a heat lamp for quite a long time. Service was adequate but nothing about the experience was special. Would not return for business... More

Great menu and pleasant space. The calamari is cooked perfectly and the edamame was very nicely steamed.

Great waterfront location. Crowded but staff was more then able to keep up! Food was fantastic but just a bit pricey for the serving size. Recommended!

We had a business dinner in Oxon Hill and I was pleased to see that we were going to meet at M&S as I have been to several across the country and they are usually very nice. There was a "special" menu insert and several of the items sounded quite good: so I ordered an appetizer and my entrée from... More

I eat at the M&S downtown frequently. This is not that. This is noisy, caters to a different crowd (tank tops and tattoos) and has servers attempting to stand in the middle of a traffic zone. Pasta dish mediocre, fish the same, salt clotted into a brick inside the shaker and sickeningly sweet tea. The coast to coast tuna app... More

This restaurant has decent chain seafood in a noisy atmoshere. The outdoor dining is preferable if the weather cooperates. The happy hour food specials are a bargain.
