    Best seats if u r on a date: when u first enter the Hall, take the left entrance and go toward stage. There is an isle of 2-top tables. Next best are the zebra couches. The rest are big shared tables.

    Great place to catch a show. Usually have to get there early to get good seats (general admission). Read more

    They stopped giving free refills on soda/iced tea & no longer serve tap water - only $3.50-16oz bottles. The food seems overpriced for quantity & quality as well.

    Having 2 pay 4 water is bogus :-( & bottle H2O is bad 4 environment etc

    The Pontani Sisters Burlesque Show was AMAZING there! Get there early, as it's general seating - food great too!

    NDevo · March 18, 2010
  • Gina R.

    Definitely get there early to grab a table in front. It's general admission.

    Report 1: Dinner special Jeanne ordered was a total rip-off. Nothing special in any way whatsoever & $17 for the privilege. My salad was a much better value. At least it wasn't supposed to be special.

    Hanging with great friends to see Maysa

    Have the catfish and red beans and rice. Not kidding. Do it.

    Gay jazz saxophonist Dave Koz brings his ‘Hello Tomorrow Tour’ this Wednesday. Koz is playing new releases and old hits. Tell us if he plays "You Make Me Smile" and "Together Again."

    Washington Blade · July 14, 2011
  • Jason Z.

    $14.99 for chicken tenders, chicken's very rare out here.

    Jason Z. · May 6, 2011
  • Pee J.

    One cool place to see a show, social, and food. But get there early due to first come first served seating even though there are really no bad seats here. Read more

    Get there early, lots of fun!

    Stacey H. · June 1, 2010

    This place Rocks! Great service. Great Pinot Grigio, by the bottle. I will definitely be back... Hopefully it will be to see Kathleen Madigan :) Be sure to swing by RT's to grab a bite afterwards!

    Seeing Kathleen Madigan. Great show, cool place

    JP · March 22
  • Shayne C.

    Don't come expecting great good or even good service. This is a place to listen to music and perhaps drink beer if you're into it, thanks to a pretty solid variety of micros.

    Shayne C. · February 22
  • Arlo G.

    Great venue for real music

    Arlo G. · February 9
  • Rosalie D.

    Arrive early to snag a good table. Decent on tap and bottled beer selection.

  • Dona P.

    Love this place.

    Dona P. · October 24, 2013
  • Nancy C.

    For the best seats, come around 4 PM. The box office opens at five. Get in line so that you can get an early number to enter and get the best seats.

    Nancy C. · October 14, 2013
  • Brian R.

    Casual place with a lot of history. Great staff. I'll be back.

    Brian R. · October 2, 2013
  • Willette B.

    The performance was excellent. The food is not so good. But it's not far from Old Town or Crystal City.

    Willette B. · September 21, 2013
  • Kyle O.

    Much more than a 'Rock Club,"legendary R&B, Bluegrass,Country, Folk, Jazz artists play in an intimate setting with perfect sound quality. No bad seats, but it's unreserved-get there early(doors at 6p)

    Southside Johnny makes it here twice a year!

    Ray V. · July 28, 2013

    One of my favorite venues.Small, intimate and the food is great!

    We love the Birchmere! Great for a date night or night out with friends. Even better - you can get $20 off your first ride by signing up for Uber with the promo code 'BIRCHMERE' ! #uberapproved

    Group of 3. Ordered crabby pretzels. Dicks gave us 2 pretzels. We had to math. Dicks also asked for tip when tickets purchased.

  • Robin G.

    You just have to suck it up and know that you're paying for an event as much as a concert. General admission, picnic tables & overpriced food is part of the experience. Yes, charging for water sucks!

    Robin G. · January 4, 2013
  • Brent P.

    Great venue! Get there early (or show up late) to grab awesome seats.

    Brent P. · December 21, 2012
  • Audrey A.

    Great, intimate venue. Good service and decent food. Arrive early to get good seats!

    Audrey A. · October 22, 2012
  • Joseph S.

    Get the catfish, red beans and rice...always a treat!

    Joseph S. · October 1, 2012
  • Pamela E.

    Be careful where you park. They will double the cars in the lot and you will be blocked in. Is that legal? Probably my last visit here.

    Pamela E. · June 2, 2012
  • Joseph S.

    Get the catfish red beans and rice! Delicious!

    Joseph S. · April 11, 2012
  • Scot H.

    Great venue, but bad food. Chicken tenders are serviceable. Nachos too. Avoid chicken quesadilla.

    Scot H. · March 25, 2012
  • Eric B.

    Great venue...just get here early!

    Eric B. · February 29, 2012
  • Colin E.

    Surprising but true the Tostada is really good!

    Colin E. · January 29, 2012
  • LetTeddyWin ..

    Arrive early for good seats, but park far from the entrance so it's easier to get out after a show. Get a bottle of wine while you're waiting & take it in. Avoid salads (swimming in vinegar &sugar).

    John Waters does an annual Xmas show here. A collection of interviews with Mr. Waters was recently published, including one in 2009 by us detailing this very event. Read more

    Bring your own water because they don't offer tap : / You'll end up spending $2.50 on one bottle.

    Martha G. · November 15, 2011
  • William W.

    You gotta try the New Orleans style food

    William W. · November 2, 2011
  • Keith M.

    Get there early for parking and seating--all reasonably priced tickets are general admission. The best performers--not the latest pop flavor of the week--perform here.

    Keith M. · October 21, 2011
  • Keith M.

    Best venue for live music in the DC-Baltimore area.

    Keith M. · October 12, 2011
  • TopGolf Bear

    This place is awesome. It’s a little small, but then again, I am a 400 pound bear. After a show, I head to TopGolf to stretch my legs and swing the big stick.

    TopGolf Bear · September 28, 2011
  • David C.

    Get there at 5:00 when they hand out the numbers that they call out at 6:00 when the music hall opens. Great live music! Read more

    David C. · August 22, 2011
  • Jeffrey B.

    Great food but come early to the show to get better seats

    Jeffrey B. · July 23, 2011
  • Janet L.

    Hell, best music venue in the WORLD! Read more

    Janet L. · July 15, 2011
  • Laura R.

    Best live music you will EVER experience! No bad seat in the house but all the better if you can catch a booth up front, incredible acoustics and you can order food & beer while catching a show, what

    Laura R. · April 29, 2011
  • Jason M.

    $13.95 for a chicken sandwich and they don't allow any substitutions??? C'mon fries instead of their bland homemade chips (same price as a seperate side.) What's the point of being so rigid. $13.95!!
