The food here is solid. Reasonably priced, professionally staffed. Nothing that will wow you but you are unlikely to be disappointed. A Washington classic and well run part of the Clyde's Restaurant Group. Clearly a favorite of Hill staffers. The interior décor is one of a kind and I highly recommend this place to a visitor who may only be here a short time.

Great seafood & less expensive than you think

I love this place for the bar scene & the restaurant. It has great seafood and the entrees are reasonably priced, most under $20 - even the crab cakes.

At the bar, they have lots of beer & wine options and you can order from the bar menu, which has fantastic crab dip, empanadas, and fresh oysters on the half shell. During happy hour, their oysters are half price, and late in the evening.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the food... so yummy & I am picky!

Great Roof Bar

I went for a charity function on the roof. The roof was great but afterwards I ate dinner and was seated in the atrium, i would recommend sitting in the restaurant.

I live in Los Angeles and visit DC every other year or so. No matter what, my trip has to include three things, Visit to the Mall and Museums, Stroll through Union Station, and a meal at Old Ebbits.

The best crab cakes ever. Make a reservation because they're always busy. But even if i had to wait an hour, it would be worth it.

Wide variety of customers. Politicians, Tourists, Locals, all crowd in the bar and front lobby for a drink and to wait for a table.

I never miss it.


extremely poor bar service

July 4th bartender Mike served drinks not in a professinal manner. Bartender was not friendly to all clients, possess no willingness to upsell, possess no hospitality at all. while there was a drink accindent at the bar, he did not ask the client if he/she would like another drink. Totally walked away instead making sure if everything was well. Bartender has a lot to work on. In order to be more profitable there has to be a change of personality. Unlike bartender Margeret; outgoing, great spirit, professional, courteous,and hospitable.
