“Good food & great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We had the burger & chicken/waffles which was good. The location is great if you are especially waiting for a tour bus or about to go visit the memorials. Sit outside & people watch. The food was good but the people watching is better,along with the comfy seats.

“Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Visited restaurant as part of a business meeting. Had the Amish Chicken and it was terrific. The restaurant has a terrific atmosphere with a beautiful bar and a ton of really cool portraits/pictures hung all over the place. It was a wonderful experience.

“Pricey but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Felt like we were eating in a place where many famous people had eaten before us. The food was ok, but quite expensive. Go for the experience.

“Great Place...great atmosphere...old school DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

I've been here a bunch of times and always enjoy it. The diinner menu was somewhat limted but the yellowfin tuna was superb. The bar area and outdoor seating had more menu options but sitting in the main dinng room amongst all the famous portraits is special. They have kids menus so a great place to go as well with the whole family. I look forward to my next visit.
