Just okay, way too expensive for the quality of the food

We visited with a family of six. The seating was nice in the shaded patio, and our server was very sweet. But the food was unimpressive. I had the Jamaican sea bass, which was good, but at nearly $30, wow, it better have tuffle oil on everything. (It didn't.) I also got the Maryland crab soup... read more

A few friends and I came here on a Friday evening for some drinks and a little dinner. It was our first time here and the Happy Hour drinks were fabulous but the food was just average. The service was good and our waitress was very helpful with our menu selections. We didn't order any appetizers and the entrees were... More

Hey, grab a $3 IPA, take it outside to the lounge, next to the board walk, do some people watching while the sun's dropping... Probably the best place to be in the movie set they call National Harbor....

I am new to the DC area and I was looking for a nice place to relax. McLoone's was great. The food was amazing, the sunset was beautiful and the service was perfect. I can't wait to take family and friends here when they visit.

Ate here twice during our recent visit to National Harbor. Lovely location right on the water. Dine in or out. Check out the Happy Hour specials for a great "grazing" meal. Don't miss Lobster Night with a 1 1/4 pounder and sides for $29.95. Friendly wait staff and bartenders. Nice decor, too. We did not feel rushed on either night... More

You can do better in National Harbor. Much better. The hostess seemed inconvenienced by having a customer interrupt her side discussion. The crab soup tasted off, but the crab cakes were good. There are 29 other restaurants in this small village of a town ...

Met some old friends here with my family. This restaurant was selected by one of my friends. After reading the reviews here, I was a little concerned. We ended up having a very good experience. We started off with drinks and apps. Our waiter, Marcus, was outgoing and stayed on top of things for us. I had the rum bucket,... More

This place was not crowded and I feel like this was the case because it is the furthest from the Gaylord. That being said, the food was excellent! Started with the lobster bisque, where they bring out a bowl with just lobster pieces so you can see it's real and then they pour the bisque over. It was delicious. Then... More

Planned to eat at M&S after playing golf nearby. Saw McLoones's while walking from parking lot. Server was likely newly trained, but brought enthusiasm to her work. Food was fres and well prepared.

we were seated immediately without reservations and offered either inside or on the patio. We chose to eat outside with a beautiful view of the Potomac and Capital Wheel. the menu is primarily seafood and very expensive. The cocktails were very good and our server was attentive. Everything we ordered was fresh and delicious just not worth the price.
