Service was excellent, manager and staff were very engaging and checking on us often, deserts were to die for. Highly recommend the brownie w/ice cream

“Great Venue... Okay service and food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

I'm in and out of Union Station a lot and like this place for the convenience. The food is okay with a pretty good selection (burgers especially) and reasonable prices. The wait staff is spotty... Sometimes they are attentive and sometimes slow and not very friendly. I've mainly caught lunch or an early dinner before a train out and it is a solid choice a step or so above fast food in the lower food court.

“Great Location, Large Meal. Not much else though.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

We saw Thunder Grill at Union Station when we arrived in DC by train. It seemed to have a good look. It seemed to have a good feel. We went back for dinner one night because of what we had seen. We were wrong. The look and feel were more of the busy station than the restaurant / bar itself. At night, it seemed more a lonely hearts club destination.
The food was what we'd ordered; nothing more, nothing less. The choice of drinks was limited. The service very forgettable.
I wouldn't bother.

“Great food,slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

% ladies went to lunch during a weekday last week. All of our entrees were excellent. Well seasoned, slighlty different then teh regular and much better then average with good prices. Our waiter was slow-we asked for seperate checks to begin with-then received one check-he reluctantly gave us seperate checks.
