“My favorite place for brunch and dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

It's just a nifty place. Not off the beaten path by any means, but the servers are great, the food is affordable and delicious, and the bar exceptional. Great for brunch or casual date night. Looks like a fun place to celebrate a birthday, too.

“Weekend dance party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

If you like starting your weekends on Thursday, the Mad Hatter is it! The Thursday special is $1 beers and the dance floor gets going by 11-11:30. Drinks were cheap and it's a fun atmosphere, particularly if you want to be around a younger crowd.

“Mad Hatter on Connecticutt in DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

I went on a Tuesday at 4pm for happy hour. The place was easy to find and well marked on the outside. The inside was very nice and clean. There were very few customers at this time. It began to pickup around 6pm. The bartender was very responsive and exceptional nice. The beer selection is not extensive and definitely lacking in a selection of crafted beers. I ordered the Yuengling Lager and the calamari. The beer came immediately. The bartender brought water which was thoughtful due to the heat outside. The calamari was a very light color almost seeming to be underdone, but tasted good. It lacked any spices. It came served with banana peppers, marinara and garlic butter cream sauce. The marinara was very good and the cream sauce was excellent, though a bit runny and would not stay on the pieces. At $10 it was a goodly portion and worth the price. The draft was $3 for happy hour again very reasonable. It was restful and reasonable quiet. There were large screens to watch the TVs and easily seen. I believe this place to be a keeper and will return to try other portions of their menu. A better selection of beers, maybe with a porter, would be nice.

“Great service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Friends and I happened upon this bar/restaurant while walking downtown. We sat outside and had an excellent dining experience! I ordered a halibut entrée..my friends ordered fish/chips, fish taco and a burger. While the food for the latter 3 was rather typical bar food, I had a excellent meal. The service was beyond expectation as was the wait staff sense of humor!

I would recommend this restaurant! We will return to check out other entrees!
