I love Donavan!!
The crab cake and fried chicken combo are worth your time and the calories!
Go to Ben's Next Door and try the Elderberry if you like gin. It's soo good.
Salmon Cakes for Brunch are great as well as they have the best Shrimp and Grits in town. Start off early with the bottomless mimosa's.. Regrets on this action are the best the next day!
Shrimp and Grits marvellous
Brunch is amazing... Service couldn't be better. Come here for an amazing start to your day!
Nice atmosphere and a chill vibe. They do well by the drinks too.
They mix sweet potato fries with regular french fries here. My inner fat kid is drooling just thinking about it.
Love the atmosphere here! A nice, chill spot and great happy hour
Grits are to die for
Get the crab soup and the fried chicken
Friendliest staff in DC. Great HH specials!
Get them grits. You'd better!
Bottomless mimosas Saturday's until 3pm :)
You must try the mini sliders!!
Sit at the bar. Adrian is the best bartender there!! Great Service!
Great for chill Sundays
Have the halfsmoke the way the bartender does, with chili, cheese, onions, and ketchup. Mac and cheese is pretty tasty too.

Rude assed bartender
Always finish with the bread pudding.
Happy hour wings are slammin!
Ask for Queenie ;-)
We Noes. Try it
Bottomless Mimosa during Sunday brunch = the way to go.
Come early on the weekends, bar is packed by 1030
This place is wonderful! I went for a first date and the date was horrible but I didn't have to speak to him because of the loud music!!
the grits are the tits
Great $5 happy hour. Nice vibe, music and people.
Great brunch. Def need bottomless mimosas.
Chicken and waffles...only odd thing, doesn't come with gravy. But chicken is very flavorful and compensates for no gravy
I will never spend another dime at Ben's Next door. I have to say I am utterly disappointed in the customer service and I will never be back. Does not value their customers.
I JUST LOVE THIS PLACE! WHAT'S THERE NOT TO LIKE?!? Lol!
If you're coming for brunch plan to wait. Pretty crowded on Sundays.
Bitches Who Brunch voted Ben's Next Door as the Best Classic DC Brunch in 2012!
Delicious! I couple of friends brought me here to experience "Ben's Chili", apparently a DC staple, and I was VERY pleased. The grits were damn good too. $16 bottomless mimosas on the weekends! :)
This is my first time here. It is HIGHLY, VERY HIGHLY OVER PRICED! It is very OVERRATED as the food is concerned. You pay for the Name!
