“What's Wrong With America Today”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Service: The wait staff were NOT FRIENDLY or HOSPITABLE. Instead, they were comfortable with putting forth only the minimum amount of energy as to get the job done without making the customers upset. Since the restaurant had only been open for about 2 hours, the waiter shouldn't have been tired. A smile goes a long way in the service industry.

Food: The Crab Cake Sandwich ($15.99) comes with a sandwich and french fries. It's available at only the National Harbor and Annapolis, MD locations. Overall the sandwich was satisfactory.

Value: The food was OVERPRICED. The menu needs work as the condiment remoulade is misspelled. They spelled it without the "a" as remoulde. I'm not sure what that is. POOR DESIGN as the restrooms are located on the second floor while most of the seating for eating customers is on the first. There's only a large staircase on the east side of the restaurant which leads up to the second floor. Once there, you have to make your way all the way across to the far west side to get to the restrooms. That's a lot of walking. What about the handicapped? NO nutritional information is provided on this restaurant's menu or website.

Atmosphere: It was poor due to the cramped seating with the wait staff almost bumping my chair on numerous occasions as they made their way to the bar area. It was also extremely LOUD to the point where you had to almost shout so members of your party could hear you at the same table. They play pop/rock music videos through loud speakers on the walls. You can follow along on at least one of the flat screen monitors also attached to the wall. The chatter of other patrons echos throughout the restaurant to aid in the excessive noise due to its poor seating design and floor plan. WHAT WHAT WAS THAT???

“Too loud”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

It is a great place at the National Harbor. The food is delish, unfortunately I was unable to hear the people on the other side of my own table!

“Cool Atmosphere and Location - Food So So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Ate at the Cadillac Ranch with some friends. Cool looking place. Great location in National Harbor. Hostess was nice. Service was fast. Waiter was in training but did a great job. Ordered the ribs. Yuck. Tasted like they bought some pre cooked frozen ribs from the grocery store and microwaved them. I would only go here again for appetizers and drinks with friends. prices were what you might expect for the area.

“Hostess from doogie houser”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

5 of us went into this bar to see the mechanical bull and grab a bit to eat, I waited at the hostage stand listening to the women talking about their evening plans and the past weekend... When I cleared my throat, they shot me a look like "can you see we are busy here".. I finally said are you seating people or not? She said yes but not you just yet I left and NEVER came back.

“Walk across the street from Gaylord for this”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Good food, service, prices. They work hard to lure convention crowd from across the street and it is worth the mighty 2 block walk.
