We saw Thunder Grill at Union Station when we arrived in DC by train. It seemed to have a good look. It seemed to have a good feel. We went back for dinner one night because of what we had seen. We were wrong. The look and feel were more of the busy station than the restaurant / bar itself. At night, it seemed more a lonely hearts club destination.
The food was what we'd ordered; nothing more, nothing less. The choice of drinks was limited. The service very forgettable.
I wouldn't bother.

% ladies went to lunch during a weekday last week. All of our entrees were excellent. Well seasoned, slighlty different then teh regular and much better then average with good prices. Our waiter was slow-we asked for seperate checks to begin with-then received one check-he reluctantly gave us seperate checks.

This restaurant is located on the main concourse at Union Station in DC. The food is average, the wine list average, the prices average. You won't leave hungry or disappointed, but you won't come back unless you have a reason to be in the station.

35 of us ate here. About 2/3 had grilled sirloin which was very good. The other 1/3 had grilled chicken which was unusually juicy and good. We would definitely eat here again if in the area.

Grabbed a quick lunch here with 3 others in between Capitol Hill appointments. Decent burgers with a twist or two. Service was good, prices seemed fair but the food was average. Don't be afraid of eating here if near Union Station and you're looking for a solid lunch. I wouldn't seek it out for a special occasion however.
