    Great brunch spot. Amazing food (I got the veggie burger with cheddar hashbrowns and ate every bite). Small area but with little to no wait, I can't complain!

    Brunch! Reasonable prices and homey yet "from the farm" food. Service can be hit or miss but we keep going back.

    Great cocktails on the first floor - come in around 11 for a nice drink, then head downstairs for a dance crowd that really knows how to have a good time!

    It’s the perfect mix of casual and cool. Monday-Thursday we love to lounge at the bar and sip wine with our beau du jour. On the weekends, the downstairs dance floor is a great place for a party. Read more

    The mood of this place certainly changes throughout the day—from a cheery and bright brunch spot to a rocking after-dark dance spot in Gate 54, the basement nightclub. Read more

    The main bar is perfect for a weeknight date. Head outside if it's not too hot or cold and enjoy the tables. The downstairs on weekend nights with a DJ can get pretty wild.

    BLT and the burger (rare with mushroom and cheddar) - excellent. So was the pâté. Service was spotty but food made up for it. Great Lakes brew was solid as well!

    This place can't decide if it's the local bar or the U St. Hotness, but in a way it's both. The beer selection is eclectic, the menu is inviting, and the bartenders are both.
