Great appetizers

We like all the restaurants in this chain in the DC area. Doesn't feel like you are eating in a chain. A view as good or better than the Baltimore location. Good coconut shrimp but would rather have shrimp cocktail. Great tuna appetizer. Ok mohito but could barely taste the booze. Price... read more

My family and I sat outside for dinner. The view was incredible! The food was great for the price, but of average quality. The only downside was that the service was slow.

The food was okay, it's a chain folks!!! The view is fantastic but the food. I won't go back. Too many choices right there to make that is worth the money

I came here alone for a quick bite. Nice atmosphere, view and service. The food is ok. I started with some raw oysters which were pretty small and skinny for the price and not very memorable. The stuffed mushrooms were ok but over-seasoned, however the crab cake appetizer was excellent and I savoured every mouthful. It had lovely big lumps... More

I called the restaurant the prior day to make a reservation for a birthday. I was informed that they print the name of the birthday man at the top of the menu. When we arrived, we were given a menu with the name of the person having the birthday. We received good service from our waitress. I was told that... More

We attended a meeting and were served drinks and "heavy" appetizers. Our meeting started at sunset. We really enjoyed wine and the view of the harbor. Every single appetizer was delicious. I enjoyed a mile high slider and bacon wrapped jumbo shrimp. My husband liked the baked brie and fruit. We were full and could not possibly have ordered an... More

Nice decor, staff friendly & professional. Cup Clam Chowder was prepared & tasted like canned soup with process clams-- cup was 1/2 full for $5.00. Stuff Shrimp dinner tasted as though frozen and not freshly prepared. However, my wife's dish, parmesan crusted flounder was outstanding and tasted freshly prepared. Although the menu was creative, we felt flavors clashed, prepared canned... More

We went here for dinner one night after making reservations. If you go during the main summer rush, I highly suggest reservations. We had a group of 6 that included 2 kids. The food and service was great.

Good food and great service. You pay for the view and the food. Not an every-day place but great for a special event/occasion. We love the one in Seattle also (that got us to this one!).

Our "go to" restaurant at National Harbor. Food is reasonably priced for the area and service is excellent. Request a table,near the window,to take advantage of the view of the Harbor and the Capitol Wheel.
