The food was excellent! I have stopped in here 4 times now and I have never been disappointed! Try the burger or the french toast! Too many dishes to list!

The Tune Inn is the most fun place on Capitol Hill. There are all kinds of animal heads on the wall, including deer, a deer rear end, a jackalope, and a bear holding a beer. It's OK pub food. Booths in the back, and a nice big bar with a friendly/gruff bartender. Locals love this place. Tourists should see it.

Went here because we saw it on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. The place wasn't even half busy. Sat in our booth for 5 minutes before someone asked us for drinks. The guy was short even when asking what drinks they had. The female waitress finally came and wasn't friendly and never smiled. We felt as an inconvenience more than anything.... More

Its a nice enough bar, with lots of atmosphere, and with a reasonable menu, but its a bar first and a restaurant second. The menu is limited and not the greatest. I do not recommend the Cuban wrap - very disappointing.

My son found this restaurant online so went walked over during our vacation. It's location was great, just down the road from the National Mall and our hotel. I was a bit apprehensive when we walked in as I was unsure it was suitable for children (walked into a full bar but there is a dining area just past the... More

We stopped in to grab a quick lunch before heading to tour the Capital. The bartender came over to take our order. I had some questions about the local beer. He told me the Miller Lite was local. I told him that I meant local to DC, he got aggravated and walked away. A waitress then came over to take... More

What a place. You are family from the moment you walk in the door. Good food, drinks and company. Matt behind the bar is always there with a gruff smile and a quick drink. The owners have been handed down the business for generations and strive to keep you comming back for more. Have the deep fried burger. AMAZING!

Needed a quick, reliable breakfast on a Saturday and this worked well. Simple menu of standard fare plus breakfast burritos. Good price. Cool restaurant interior.

Thank David J
