It's a fine setting with decent food, though not inexpensive even on DC terms and specializing in--wait for it--pizza and burgers, how interesting...still, service is competent and the results are tasty. Go at an odd hour to avoid the routine lines.

This is a really nice neighborhood pizza restaurant. It is clean, neat, kind of hip, and has great food. Our service was great. We had to wait for a couple of members of our party, and the server didn't mind that we were taking our time. The pizza was great. Very high energy place. Worth the trip.

Burgers are great here. Includes a side of thick cut onion rings which are also awesome. Only complaint is that the dark and stormy comes in a short glass.

We ate here with family - wait was shorter than advertised (!), we were ushered upstairs to a large booth. Food was very tasty, though my spicy meatball pizza could have been spicier (it has that pleasant spirit of bipartisan compromise, you might say). Prices fair, service good.

This is a great casual dining spot. Met a friend there while in DC. The wait was considerable, but worth the time investment. The ambiance was ideal. The food was excellent. The sampler was a good selection, ideal for sharing. The pepperoni pizza was scrumptious. Would recommend the spot to others and will visit on subsequent DC trips.
