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.

Went for a Sunday brunch. Slim selection offered. The bagels were hard as bricks. The ambience is nice. The hostess and waiters (we had a pretty large party) were very nice and friendly providing service. However, this place has a "waffle and omelette station". Let be serious there is only one waffle make and one top of there's only one... More

We sat outside with a good view of the Potomac. I read a review on thos place that the wait staff was rude and slow but my experience was not that at all. The staff was very nice and attentive. The Rockefeller Oysters were delicious and a must try. I had the Jamaican Jerk Red Snapper which i thought would... More

The menu is seafood focused, but also offers a number of beef, veal and vegetarian options. Walking in without reservations, we were pleasantly surprised to be seated immediately. The waiter was acknowledgeable about the menu and made numerous suggestions. One of his suggestions that we enjoyed was the crab dip appetizer. The calamari appetizer was also nice and perfectly cooked.... More

I'll start by saying I did not eat here. At the Harbor for the World Police Games Dragon Boat Races. Truly disappointed that reviews were good, menu was good, but only a buffet brunch is available until 3 on Sunday's; no option for menu orders.

Yesterday was my 2nd time at this restaurant. Both times, I was satisfied with my food as well as the service. But on this visit, I had a chance to try the Caramel Apple Mojito and it was great! It is a bit overpriced but then again, it's the National Harbor where everything is overpriced. I will most likely dine... More

They accommodated our extended family of 15 which was helpful. The waiter had a canned speech for his introduction, and for each item he reviewed. Food took an extremely long time to come, orders weren't correct, and disorganized delivery. Not a place I would recommend - overpriced and slow
