Good Good service a little off

Good great. Salad was great all sandwiches we got were so good. I loved my "wreck". The coconut pineapple smootie was so good. Didn't love the ordering process. Slow making the smootie. ... But worth it.

Your average sandwich eatery. Fair prices, kids loved the milkshakes. Great scenery and view. Outside tables available and they had a singer with a great voice entertaining the diners.

This was my first time visiting National Harbor eating at Potbelly with my husband ..it was a quick place to eat at and the food was wonderful compared to Subway. However, the employees were rude and unfriendly and made us stand waiting at the register to pay while they talked to each other until we said something. Its a shame... More

This reminded me of a cross between Subway and Jimmy Johns. It was alright for a sandwich shop. I can't say I was overly impressed or overly disappointed either way. It is a nice alternative to the fine dining restaurants at National Harbor.

Stopped for lunch while waiting for afternoon conference sessions to begin. Service was prompt and liked they asked if I wanted anything excluded from the salad I picked. Had nice outdoor seating available but all the tables were full. Has a good mix of sandwiches and salads. The salad I got was filling - no skimping on portion sizes

Don't know if the staff was shorthanded, but on a Saturday night you need someone to staff the dining area to wipe up tables and keep the place decent. Never saw anyone taking care of this.

Wife and kids visited this restaurant while I was in the shower. They brought me back a sandwich which was excellent. Would recommend this place.

Visited on a Saturday so it was very busy, but the staff were very efficient with taking orders and check out, so even with the long line, it moved very quickly. Sandwiches were good and their cookies are delicious (they had fresh oatmeal chocolate chip when I was there-yum!). They also have some outside seating so you can enjoy the... More
