Great Beer very good steak and in the evening we also had some entertainment. It's not only good in the evening when you have nowhere else to go but also a valid place to start your day with an amazing breakfast.

Enjoyed visiting RFD for drinks while staying in DC. We found a rare, limited edition beer, so made sure we maximized our time at RFD to enjoy it. Wait staff were attentive. Can't comment on food because we stuck to drinks.

Well we took a small group here all on business in DC. Disappointed. Every meal was okay but not worth the price and the beer selection was great in the main bar/restaurant but lacking in the "back bar". Service was barely acceptable.
