We had a wonderful breakfast here, really excellent bacon! Great service and pretty good coffee.I was expecting a brunch menu & crowds, but it was just us at that time.

This is an English-based restaurant. My daughter appreciates the poutine (french fires, cheese, and gravy). The menu has traditional UK fare and then some. Fair prices. Close to the Federal Triangle stop.

Sunday at 11a. Few open choices in the business district that weren't mobbed. E&C was open with both brunch and lunch menu selections, bottomless Bloody Mary and no waiting. The food was very good and service prompt and friendly - if a little unskilled.

We went in twice during our recent trip to USA. Have to say the service was fast, the staff are very attentive, and the food was delicious. It was also really good value for money. Big thumbs up from me.

The inside is really nice looking, but it was such a nice day we couldn't resist sitting out on the patio. We had a great experience. Elliot was our server. The food was all good. The highlight was the pretzel sticks. Those were fantastic and...More

I went with my 18yo son. The restaurant was busy but we were seated within 10 minutes. It was a fun atmosphere with games on the Tvs and true Pub vibe. The food was good and service too. Ice cold draft specials for happy hour...More
